I invite you to participate in a new dream for humanity, one in which all of us can live in harmony, truth, and love.

In this dream, people of all religions and all philosophies are not just welcome, but respected. Each of us has the right to believe whatever we want to believe, to follow any religion or philosophy we want to follow. It doesn’t matter whether we believe in Christ, Moses, Allah, Brahma, Buddha, or any other being or master; everybody is welcome to share this dream. I don’t expect you to believe all my stories, but if they resonate inside you, if you can feel the truth behind the words, then let’s make one more agreement: Help me to change the world.

Of course, the very first question is: How are you going to change the world? When I ask you to help me to change the world, I’m not talking about planet earth. I’m referring to the virtual world that exists in your head. The change begins with you. You will not help me to change the world if you don’t change your own world first.

You will change the world by loving yourself, by enjoying life, by making your personal world a dream of heaven. And I ask you for your help because you are the only one who can change your world. If you decide that you want to change our world, the easiest way is by using the tools that are nothing but common sense. The Five Agreements are tools to change your world. If you are impeccable with your word, if you don’t take anything personally, if you don’t make assumptions, if you always do your best, and if you are skeptical while listening, there won’t be any more war in your head; there will be peace.

We represent a whole legacy, and when I say we, I’m speaking for all humans. Our legacy is love; it’s joy; it’s happiness, Let’s enjoy this world. Let’s enjoy one another. We are meant to love one another, not to hate one another. Let’s stop believing that our differences make us superior or inferior to one another. Let’s not believe that lie. Let’s not be afraid that our different colors make us different people. Who cares? It’s just another life. We don’t have to believe all the lies and superstitions that have control of our lives. This is the time to end all the lies and superstitions. We can return to the truth, and be messengers of the truth.

Let’s make a difference in this world. Let’s win the war in our head, and change the world. How long will it take for the entire world to change? Two, or three, or four generations? The truth is that we don’t care how long it will take. We are not in a hurry, but we have no time to lose. Help me to change the world.
