"The New Way to Change the World" without political influences, is to just plain do something for yourself. Inspiring video to watch here: http://permacultureprinciples.com/
What you do FOR yourself you do FOR everyone, and you don't need to fight the political structure to do this.

Btw, what you do TO yourself, you do TO everyone as well. This includes the good as well as the bad.

So if you take care of your own environment, do good things TO yourself, FOR yourself, this way you change the world. Your environment equals not just places, but includes people and things. Surround yourself with good people, places, things and you surround everyone else with the same.

Permaculture is not such a complicated thing. It's just environmental thinking that starts with individuals doing things FOR themselves which DOES make a difference for everyone else in this world.

Love to hear about your adventures with permaculture.

I love the quote from the TED talk given above:

"We can be as positive as we are currently negative."

Yes, it's my new focus. I love that quote. I never realized how little energy it actually takes to be totally positive. It's so easy to be conscious of your negative thoughts so you can redirect them right away. Its so easy to give gratitude constantly for everything good in life. It's so easy to receive all the blessings the Universe is conspiring to offer us. It's so easy, and it gets easier every day when you are conscious.

When you say CANCEL CANCEL, you realize how many times you are negative each day.
