Silly I was in my childhood dreaming to change the world, wipe out all the evil from the planet & becoming everyone's favourite. World seemed so important to me. Happy, high spirited & sure until I realized how little I could do, all because I grew up.
With time, the world changes a lot; may be not actually, but, surely for you. Life is harsh in reality. Despite all efforts, it’s difficult to fulfil my childhood wish. But still, there is a tiny candle in my heart, dim, yet flaming to inspire me again.
I am now wise. I have another world where I have all the control, my inner world. I can change it, wipe out it’s evil & become my favourite.
I begin to explore myself, nourish my thoughts, cleanse my mind, drain all the hopelessness & enrich my soul. Peace became my necessity & creativity my partner.
This inner transformation is actually revolutionary. Your thought process changes, your body strengthens, your mind receives external stimuli differently & you become content in all situations. In short, it makes you self-actualized.
How beautifully Rumi says it
Yesterday I was clever so I wanted to change the world,
Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
