You Can Change The World

Written by on December 15, 2020 in Uncategorized with 0 Comments

Much of the pain that we are experiencing in the world right is the result of things dying, things like institutionalized racism, bigotry, sexism, and general lack for the environment. Like the immortal “crooning” words of Bob Dylan, “the times, they are a changin'.”  It's important to remember also that much of the pain of what we are experiencing right now is the birthing pains of what's coming next. Also, this birth of what's coming next is calling on YOU to step up and become the person you are destined to become. YOU are responsible to change the world and yes, you do have the power to change the world. As ancient wisdom states, the change you wish to see in the world can only come from within. 

There is moment being born. It's a global movement of consciousness, both for individuals and institutions. I know, I know, the world seems really broken at times. Actually, there are many things going better than ever in this world. Regardless, we cannot wait for someone else to make things better. We are more capable than we can imagine to make things as they aught to be. This global movement of consciousness is about learning how to set things right by setting yourself right. 


But how, I'm only one person. How can I possibly make a global difference?


This summer my family was were practicing some extreme social distancing on a secluded river trip with a very small group down the down San Juan River in Southern Utah. As we floated down the river, beers in hand, we spent many long hours  staring up at the incredible landscape of the canyon walls. The patterns of erosion were incredible: enormous, almost perfect squares the size of elephants, and rectangles the size of cargo ship containers. I was struck by the straight lines of these enormous rocks, as if some giant was playing with the canyon walls, carving each perfect shape out, and plopped it into the river. 


A woman on our trip was environmental scientist and had a passion for geology. I asked her how these enormous rocks could be shaped so perfectly with what looked like chiseled corners and almost perfect lines. She offered her best SWAG, (scientific-based wild-ass guess) and suggested that perhaps the microscopic, individual particles of the principal mineral in the rock were shaped in squares and rectangles so the larger stones merely reflected the composite of the smallest possible elements. Fascinating!

This SWAG reminds me of  the hermetic saying, “As above, so below,” and vice versa. In other words, the whole is represented in each of its parts. Since the world is the composite of individuals, the best and only way to change the world is from within. You must change yourself, and when you are whole the world becomes whole.


There’s a critical mass of those who are waking up to their highest beings. This critical mass, along with the winds of change, has eroded the old and weathered facade and those who are waking up are breaking from the old. We are rolling toward the living waters of a more just, prosperous, and sustainable existence. 


We are the epitome of rock and roll. 

“It is increasingly clear,” writes Paneth, “that all global regimes as currently established are inadequate to the monumental tasks ahead and that people's movements must arise around the world to save the day.” (Photo: aleutie /


Yes, there’s a movement that is underway and it’s begging you to join. It's calling to you to wake up from the illusion of being a limited, powerless being and wake up to the unimaginable power that is already inside of you, to fertilize the seed of your birthright and majesty, so you can be a crucial cell in this organism of consciousness that is changing the world. 


We cannot wait for someone else to save us. Our purpose is to save ourselves.We must be the change of the world because the solutions to the world’s problems only lie within. Like Alice Walker said, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

We can make this powerful change with simple but effective practices like Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is by far and away one of the most effective and most relaxing ways of changing your state of consciousness, one that helps you uplevel your stage of consciousness and then… yes— change the world.


Nidra is a Sanskrit word meaning sleep, and Yoga Nidra is often called “the yoga of sleep” because it is a form of guided meditation that uses relaxation and a system of organized and layered awareness to take you through a journey into a liminal state between waking and dreaming consciousness. It is here, in this liminal state, that you discover that your mind, body, and spirit together contain a pathway that leads to the gates of perfect presence, wholeness, and Oneness.


Yoga Nidra is a potent catalyst for massive personal growth, giving you the direct tools and direction to become the person you are destined to become…the greater You who is destined to change the world. 


Try this free Yoga Nidra practice to help you wake up to your divine potential.
