How to change the world

It is not necessary to change other people. Hells bells, it’s not even possible! Our work is to wake up and change ourselves. Nothing changes until we do. No other change is necessary.

Doing the work

We are spittle factories. We talk too much. More words count less. We know that; we long for the gleaming economy of right speech. But first we must know that breaking Babel will be very difficult—harder than quitting cigarettes or weed, harder than losing weight, harder than anything we’ve ever done. We ought not to attempt it unless our goal is our God, before whom there are no other gods, the only and absolute focus of our deathless devotion.
