  • Change (s), ARTICLE ON

If we look at the world today, and start to question how we can change things from a fundamental level, we can identify that part of the world's problems concerning excessive consumption and poor relationships lies in the fact that people are always looking outside of themselves for value, meaning and fulfillment.

However, the Toltec teachings show that there is an enormous amount of beauty and magic in our everyday lives. So, rather than looking outside of ourselves, we just need to develop the skills to learn how to see this beauty and magic.

Another aspect of the problem is that people are living only in their minds - there is no place for the heart. One of the most important parts of the Toltec teachings is that people can begin to realise that life is a feeling and not an intellectual exercise - hence the importance of learning how to get in touch with our hearts again.

Therefore, if we really want to change the world, the best way is to start working on ourselves. By taking charge of our own life, we make a vast difference in the world, for all of life is interconnected, interrelated and interdependent.
