Being Inspired and Taking Action



“To move the world we must first move ourselves.” – Socrates

There is a practical and a spiritual application of this insight, the first is to do with taking action, the second is to do with inspiration. As humans we have a need to contribute to the lives of those we interact with and if possible to leave this world a better place than when we found it.

To make that all important contribution we need to take action, I
believe that to take action we need to find the inspiration that will move us forward. It is possible to be motivated by money, either money to put food on the table, a roof over our heads and clothes on our backs; but to find inspiration to do more than survive we need to find something more.

To be inspired or to be “in spirit” we need to connect to our higher self. We need to see or hear something that reminds us of our Original reason for showing up on planet Earth. When we do
connect to our higher self, this experience will lead us to a place where we want to take action in the fulfilling our purpose.

To move the world in our favor, to get our needs met we must
fulfill the needs of others; but to impact the world long term and make it a better place we need to connect with our higher self and find out what is our calling and then fulfil it!
