When we nurture our inner aspect, the change that happens naturally within us overflows to those around us. The nature of love-consciousness is to give; just as laughter is contagious bliss seeks to spontaneously share itself with others,. That is why we suggest establishing inner change as the basis for external transformation.
By cultivating inner joy we set things in motion, and the rest is only a matter of time. The fountain that emanates from our heart joins with the bubbling fountain of others; as it pours into our homes and communities, a flood begins to form, washing away the old and leaving everything renewed.
On the other hand, we have all noticed how the environment changes in a room when someone in a bad mood enters, be it the boss, a customer or a sullen teenager. The atmosphere becomes tense and we lose our spontaneity. Although we have all experienced it, we generally don’t realize how much our mood affects those around us. By changing our internal state, by replacing the negativity and constant preoccupation of the mind with lightness, celebration and innocence, we succeed in changing the atmosphere in our environment much more profoundly than any ambient music or aromatic candle could ever achieve.
Being in the presence of a truly happy person is a delight; they lift the mood of everyone around them. I’m not talking about someone with a positive mentality or a can-do attitude, I mean a person with the inner joy that comes only from the expansion of love-consciousness, within which certain elements of trust and pro-activity flourish. But with a different air that is marked by a calm and quiet certainty. Before, our positivity was based on an artificial facade, part of the polished presentation that we used to “sell” our own worth to others. Now it no longer comes from a desire to demonstrate our importance to others, but as a result of residing in the true power of our being. When such a person speaks, everyone stops and listens, since love-consciousness commands the attention of the world without effort or force.
At home, in the office and in society, we feel the need to exercise control and shape others to our will, only because we lack the inner clarity that, with its mere presence, inspires others to listen. A true leader, whether in the family or in any other situation, inspires through love and not through fear. This is true power, the power of the heart. By nourishing our inner aspect, we can change the world but the first place where we will notice changes will be in our personal relationships.
