The Gods Of Eden – 19

http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/vida_alien/godseden/godseden19.htm

“It is NATURAL for people to wonder how they might be able to improve the world around them. A widespread misconception is that to be effective, a person must either be rich, a politician, or a saint. The truth is, one can successfully take responsibility for oneself and for one’s fellow humans from exactly where one is without greatly disrupting one’s life or livelihood.

One may begin doing this gradually by first improving one’s own life, then by giving help to family and friends where it is wanted, then by joining or starting groups with laudable social goals, and finally by pursuing a sense of direct personal responsibility for the human race. It is important that more people begin this process. As history has clearly shown, if you do not create your own surroundings, someone else is going to create them for you, and you may not like what you get.”
