Fixing the World

Instead of fixing the world to your liking, deciding how everyone else should be or act; could you in fact change your own mind?  Could you change how you view others, how you judge, and your tollerance?

Changing the world can be good.  Just be sure you've covered home base before you venture out to fix someone else's turf.

To cover all the earth with sheets of hide,
Where could such amounts of skins be found?
But simply wrap some leather around your feet,
And it's as if the whole earth has been covered!

Shantideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva
