inner Transformation: A Journey Within To Change the World Without - Journey Begins

Dare Change the World ? 

World is a mirror in which we see ourselves reflected. We are the makers of our own world, if the world looks ugly it is because of we ourselves are ugly. If we cleanse our mind and thoughts, we will find that the brilliance in the world is but a reflection of the brilliance within. But we are mostly engaged in trying to clean the mirror than removing the layer of dirt on our own face. Any change, especially the change within, needs a strong intent, SMART* goals, determination to succeed, a well made plan and a disciplined execution. 

It all starts with a THOUGHT in our mind. Mind is nothing but a constant flow of thoughts. As humans became the crown jewels of Almighty's creation, the supreme intelligence has given us freedom and capability to originate thought. With this power (to originate thoughts), the Supreme Intelligence has made us all participants in His creative process.  

Our thoughts are the seeds that get nurtured into our (verbal and non-verbal) EXPRESSIONS. What and how we think affects what we say and how we say it. Just imagine if you are thinking about some of the sad times of your life, how would your expressions be even while interacting with people unaware of those sad events? If you were thinking of good times, your expressions will be surely more jovial.  

"Language shapes our behavior and each word we use is imbued with multitudes of personal meaning. The right words spoken in the right way can bring us love, money and respect, while the wrong words—or even the right words spoken in the wrong way—can lead to a country to war. We must carefully orchestrate our speech if we want to achieve our goals and bring our dreams to fruition."

—Dr. Andrew Newberg, Words Can Change Your Brain
Our Thoughts and Expressions inspire ACTIONS along with modulating quality and nature of them i.e. what we do and how we do it. It is through our Actions that we become part of the creative process. 

Life everyday poses a set of events or stimuli to us; we can decide not to respond to these events (inaction), decide to use our memory and react (instinctive reaction); or respond to the events by originating new thoughts. In all three cases, there will be an outcome. We can call this outcome as fruit of our actions; or Outcomes. The exact outcome is not in our control but our thoughts, expressions and actions have power to influence the outcome. If the outcome is not that we desire, a new cycle of flow of thoughts, expressions and actions starts and life goes on....And that is how most of us play our role in the creative process. 

I call this triplet of Thoughts, Expressions and Actions as "TEA"; and their ongoing interplay in life as "Brewing of TEA". Therefore, "Brewing TEA" is the way we participate in the creative process of the Supreme Creative Intelligence.
