Hardly a day goes by without someone writing or saying that “We need to Save the World!”.

For most of our lives, the greatest goal has been wanting to save the world, we feel the immediacy of the need to save our world and want to be part of the saving group. It seems most of us want our page in a comic book, like Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Fantastic Four, and what have you. Being the heroes that save the world, so the world will remember and honour us. But what manner of Hero will you be when you can not even save yourself?

Does the world need saving? Does it require us to save it when we can not even save ourselves?

A story about someone looking for love. She was asked to make a list for her ideal partner. The first list she’s asked to make is about herself, who she is, her likes and dislikes, then she puts in all that she wants to find in the ideal partner happily in the second list thinking that was all.

Now she was asked to make a third list, comparing all that she expects in the partner to her self list, noting those that she is not, but wants her partner to be. Later on, she’s asked to begin living that way for her ideal man. “Not so lovely like the magic she expected”.

The question is;

What is the best way for me to serve the world?

To fit into it, What is the best way for me to serve the world?
And you answer it by being the change you want to see in others and the world, setting good example, and saving yourself first.

We are not Super People with Superpowers. We are common people with great courage and strength and accomplishment. Our greatest gifts to this world are our opened hearts, our light, our strength, and the genius of our whole true selves. We are all being called to be our best selves, a solution not the problem or fault finders.

The world needs our Truth. It needs our strength, our light, and our whole true selves. You have my permission to remind yourselves right now to lay down your worry, your fear, your overwhelm, and turn toward your precious selves, and brighten the corner where you are. Only through loving and paying attention to yourselves will you be able to rise up and serve in the most effective ways. To arrive at solutions that are positive and sustainable.

We are in here to fit into a part of the earth and that is it, fitting in not fixing it. It was never messy before we came in, so whatever mess we find now is what we created and needs to be cleaned by us. Not by seeing it as a favour we are offering the world.

So like the one seeking love, and expecting the best from his or her ideal partner, who first needs to work on his or herself in becoming the ideal partner for someone else. So must each of us work towards becoming the best element for the world before expecting that to be reciprocated.

Only the individual can rise to the heights of consciousness and awareness. The more you belong to the crowd, the deeper you fall into darkness” ~Osho

The only way to save the world is to save Yourself first!
