And what about myself? It is important that I begin where I am and not somewhere out there. In other words, whatever changes I wish to see in the world, I must first bring them about in myself and in my own life. I need to look into my mind and heart. How can I open up my heart and explore my mind? There are many different interpretations of the word ‘mind’ in philosophy, psychology, and religion and yet, how much do I know of what my own mind holds and to what extent can I use its power and energy in the right direction?
Human hearts have become cold and human heads hot. It is time to turn that around, to make our hearts warm, compassionate and loving, and our heads cool, stable and clear. If at any time I begin to lose hope in myself, let me simply look inside my heart and see all the good actions I have performed in the past, from the smallest to the grandest.
