15/24 – Agent of Change

agent of changeSeth really seems to have a very strong relationship with the word change. When I said hi to him at the beginning of the day, he asked what I do and when I answered that I’m a change agent, he looked me in the eye, and very deliberately said:

Ah. So you are an Agent of Change. 

And all of a sudden, I was hit with the deep mening of this. It’s not something sassy to say when people ask what I do, it’s not just a title that sticks out a bit. It’s much more than that.

Because yes. I do want to make a change in the universe. And not just any change. Things can change in ways that serve and in ways that don’t serve. And the trick is to find that which serves us all, and with all, I mean all. Not just humans. Not just animals. All of it. The entirety that makes out the habitat we share on planest Earth.

Do you want to make a change in the universe?

12/24 – Change the universe?

Do you? Do you realize you can? Have you figured out that it doesn’t have to be something grand to actually make a change?

With the smallest of acts, we can change the universe. Each and everyone of us. Because everything I do has some impact, on something or someone. It’s a bit like the butterfly effect.

At times, this feels like a heavy burden. Knowing when I do something that’s not good for the world, it has a negative effect. The knowledge weighs me down. Feel guilty. Ashamed. But I seldom follow this feeling, as it rarely serves me.

Mostly though, my take on this is a sense of wonderment at the endless possibilities available! Everything I do can make a difference. I can assist in creating a beneficial change to the universe. Little me. Imagine that!
