“First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.” Mahatma Gandhi
This is the struggle to change for good. You are facing the torrent of fear and greed and trying to turn the flow, and yourself, to love. Until all humanity knows and feels the honesty of cosmic law, trying to do the right thing the right way will be a challenge. The reward is possession of your own conscience and spirit, without which you are a hollow person.
More wisdom from Ghandi:
“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.”
“I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill.”
“An eye for an eye, and soon the whole world is blind.”
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
“There is more to life than increasing its speed.”
