Were you aware that over a million people each month type into Google – How do you change the world? When you consider how many people there are in the world you might not think that’s a lot of people. I found it comforting to know there are at least one million Souls, if not more, genuinely wanting to see changes in the world enough to go seek answers on Google. The growth of the Middle Eastern Spring and Occupy Movement worldwide, attest to the fact that there is a growing number of people discontent with the status-quo wanting to see positive change.

Let’s explore the worthy question then…How Can We Change The World?

It’s a big question and no doubt there will be sceptics who respond by saying it’s a complex issue and delegate it in the ‘too hard basket’. Bare with me as you read this article because I think Occam’s razor might apply. That is to proceed to simpler theories until simplicity can be traded for greater explanatory power. Well I believe with the advances of Quantum Physics and the greater awareness of the Laws of Nature that govern our Universe, that day where we can trade simplicity for a greater explanatory power is here. Let me explain.

Mahatma Gandhi was an example of how one person can change the world. His legacy is still spoken about today and his teachings have been debated and discussed for more than sixty years now. He said “be the change you want to see in the world”. This statement points to the understanding that the outside world we see is a reflection of our inner state. If we want to see change in the world outside of ourselves, we need to begin to make the changes within ourselves.

It’s similar to Michael Jackson’s lyric “I’m starting with the man in the mirror. I’m asking him to change his ways……. If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make that change.”

Simple enough right? What’s the greater explanatory power we can trade here for such a simplistic view? In other words what is the Law of Nature in operation here? Would it not be the Law of Creation?

The Law of Attraction that has become so popular in modern times, has taught us how to bring into manifestation that which we desire from self improvement to manifesting all we desire.

My mantra is if we all desire to see change in the world “Why not use the Law of Attraction to change the world?”

We’d start by using the Law of Creation (of which the Law of Attraction is part of it) to create or re-create ourselves as the change we want to see in the world. For example, if you don’t like violence in the world ask yourself honestly where do you harbor violence or charge on violence within you? Remember violence can be overt or covert.

Do you talk incessantly, never allowing other people to participate in the conversation, perhaps even steam rolling over them with your opinions? Do you make snide remarks about people? Do you lash out with your tongue etc? These can be perceived by others as a form of covert aggression and sometimes violence. You’re in the Self Growth forum because you’re into self improvement and presumably you want to know more about yourself, reach your higher potential and communicate better with others so you can have an expanded reality and elevated living experience. That’s the Law of Expansion. You have come here to expand. So that is grand.

When you combine that Law of Expansion, with the Law of Creation (a more expanded version of the Law of Attraction) and fully comprehend the Law of Duality, its purpose and operation in our physical reality, we can begin to work with these laws to not only make changes within ourselves but also change the world. I call the Law of Creation an expanded version of the Law of Attraction because the popular way that Law of Attraction is taught leaves out some critical components – frequency and action being two of them. Connection to the substance at the Source of creation being another important aspect of the Law that has been left out the way it is currently taught.

Working with the Laws of Nature in harmony with each other rather than in isolation, forms part of what I call Strategy With Spirit. So what can all this teach us about How To Change The World? I believe it has to start with making those changes within ourselves, because we each individually make up the greater whole that forms our world.

The only thing is that creating change doesn’t, nor should it, stop here. There’s more to making the positive changes we want to see in the world than simply making changes within ourselves. Starting with the man or the woman in the mirror is certainly the place to start.
