Change in a country begins with one person. Each country reflects the inner peace or turmoil of its mass population, and so as one person changes they affect the rest of the population. One person has the power within them to bring massive change to their country through immense love and peace within themselves. But you cannot bring about peace and well-being in your country unless you have conquered them in your own life. Do you see? You cannot give what you do not have. Each person’s job is to bring utter harmony into their own life, and then they will become the greatest gift for their country and the world.
