Do not sit under the tree and wish or complain that your life will change. While this may be the catalyst for change, you must stand up and move or the Universe will not take your desire for change seriously.
You live in an ever-changing universe, so why are you surprised when you find yourself and other people changing as well? Change within people is possible in many positive and unseen ways, as they awaken. This is why it is important to focus on the awakening and not on what you would like to see changed.
