You say that you want a revolution Lennon/McCartney Without a doubt you it has touched to listen that we needed a change, that the things cannot follow equal, and more likely you agree. Perhaps nevertheless, like the majority of the people, you do not have idea of by where beginning. How to change what it has lasted by centuries, although has expired? A revolution is, as to his it indicates it name, a turn, almost always in another direction. The historical revolutions have changed the social circumstances and until the countries, although unfortunately not always for the benefit of the majority. And it is that the true revolution, the significant change cannot be only external. As what it serves to overthrow a government to put another one with people who think exactly just as those to which they overthrew? Thus, the true change, the return, the turn, the revolution, must be basic, of substance and not only of form.

There am the challenge there. How to change to the bottom and the substance of each individual of a society? You it would say that it is almost impossible, utopian. The life as soon as it reaches to know one same one and to try to change what it does not favor to us. But you know what is the best thing of everything? With that it is than sufficient more. If all we were applied in the change to improve, one would become ” effect domino” that more early than behind schedule permeara to the society and the world. Under you do not create it, simply it remembers how it changes the atmosphere when you are between a group of negative and plaintive people, or one of positive people and cheers. ” And how change? ” we asked the travellers of this passage. It is not easy, but historical and esoteric references exist of first that we must change: The mind.

Recently I read a book of Maurice Nicoll on the interpretation not so literal of the Bible. In him it narrates how the disciples asked to him Jesus on deads at the hands of Pilatos, and on another tragedy in the city of Silo. The apostles wished to know how how to free such fortune, and Jesus it says to them: ” If you do not regret, you will run the same suerte”. Interesting, the word to regret. According to the erudite author of this book, that in Spanish is called shoots with an arrow in the Blanco” , the word to regret appears in all the New Testament translated of Greek erroneous way from the original one. The word that is translated as to regret in the modern versions of the Bible he is metanoia. And you know what means metanoia in Greek? Change of the mind. Goal is the transformation or revolution, noia comes from nous, that means mind. The revolution of the mind. On the other hand, the word to regret comes from the Latin penitare, that means to have pain. Nothing that to see. Jesus does not ask to them his followers who have pain or who suffer, he asks to them that they change his way to think. In summary, we want to stop seeing tragedies, to have bad luck, to live with pains? We change the mind. It transforms your way to think and you will transform your reality. It revolutionizes your thought and you will change your life, your surroundings, and why no? , until the world.
