thinking, then change your actions, but how you feel. And thus the world around
you will change. Not just because now you can see your environment through new
'lens' thought and feelings, but because the change means you can allow you to

resistance will become ill and will visit more and less. Find what you really
want to do and then find and inner motivation to continue. One reason why
Gandhi had so much success with the method of nonviolence, was that he and his
followers did not give up ever.
