Change myself – a meditation




Yesterday, I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today, I am wise, so I am changing myself.

– Rumi



When others behave in ways I don't like, or don't do the things that I think they should, I can feel powerless, as we explored in our most recent podcast episode. Usually, I can't change them to act “correctly”. As Rumi suggests, the path of wisdom to change my response or reaction, instead. One way for me to do that is to accept others as they are, recognizing that they are unlikely to change just to suit me. We will explore acceptance in our next podcast episode. Please be sure to tune in for it.

A meditation for December 18, 2012.
