How to Change the World

Today's work: the world is changed by your example, not your opinion.

It reminded me of some words I posted a while ago: "if you wish to know the truth, hold no opinions for or against anything."

Having opinions is imposing and superficial: controlling, self-serving, leaving no room for change or acceptance. But being by example is transformative and regenerative: constantly creative, present, and available. 

If you can look at anything and everything in this world having mastered your own personal desire to form an opinion about it, and instead you cultivate the skill of just allowing it, just seeing it as is, life becomes peaceful because you become peaceful. 

And when you become peaceful, truth becomes visible.

This was lovely and your art is lovely. I like the idea of being undefinable and just being. When you give an opinion, you are setting what you think in stone. If you just be, then it's ever changing.
