Try to love the world.

Do not try
To change the world.
You will fail.
Try to love the world.
Lo, the world is changed,
Changed forever.

– Sri Chinmoy


My New Year’s resolution is to try and remember and practice the advice of Sri Chinmoy, “try to love the world” instead of trying to change the world. Personally, I seem to be quick to find ways to make changes to what I don’t like but it always takes me a moment to remember that Love must be my first action before anything else. That’s my simple message today — Love the world.

I wish you a very peaceful and prosperous New Year!
