You must be the change that you want to see in the world, Mahatma Ghandi famously said. No logic in saying you want world peace, for example, if you’re engaged in violent protest.

Ghandi was an activist. Activists see more vividly than most what’s wrong with the world, what they want to put right.

For conscious creatives, it’s a little different.  We too need to be what we want to see and sometimes, yes, that means change. But sometimes not.

Sometimes conscious creation is more about being, owning, expressing or celebrating what already is.

Inhabiting more fully who we already are.

Change or no change, the principle still stands. Be what you want to see.
