"I have a desire to make a difference in the world, but I have to remember it all starts within me first. Sometimes I forget that peace depends on my own healing and personal growth. As I become skillful at recognizing my old programming I become aware of my own dysfunctional patterns and behaviour. I asked myself, "How long do I want my past to control my life? Do I really want to keep blaming, judging, criticizing, comparing or competing?" The answer is, No. "I want to live my life from a place of forgiveness, compassion and kindness." Today I can make a difference - by increasing my level of self-awareness. I can meditate and recognize my projections and over-reactions. This is how I make a difference."
