Rumi’s Quote

Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today, I am wiser, so I am changing myself. Rumi

Rumi’s quote reminds me how much easier it is to offer solutions to the world’s problems, to solve others’ dilemmas. Yet we need not look to faraway places or grandiose dilemmas. We can start “close in” with that first step of change and growth in our own lives, considering our own words, our own behavior, our own heart. Ironically, if we each did that, the world might in fact be transformed.
