Control is what our ego convinces us to exert on someone or something else. In realtiy the only thing we can control is ourselves.
I often want to change others. The only person I can change is myself.
When we want to change the world we begin by changing ourselves. It's what Ghandi meant when he said, "Be the change you wish to see in the world."
When we become opinonated and think we know how the world should change what we really know is how we need to change.
When I see a fearful world filled with doom and gloom the only change I need make is to embrace my own fear of the future.
If I see a loving world spinning towards a bright future I know I feel empowered by the love I feel within.
I'm giving you permission to be King or Queen of your world.
Get out your magic wands and decide what you want to change from "within" emotionally, physically, and spiritually. The results will echo throughout our world aiding in the healing of mankind.
Making personal changes "within" is about owning what we project outward on to others and the world.
Answering these questions will help you get started. The answers you get are "all about you."

Only then will I be able to rise above the battleground of my ego. Only then will I be the peace I want to see in the world.
