Yes, the world is changing tremendously, miraculously, fundamentally when a thoughtful individual does the least good thing in the spirit of improving his own life. The total little bits of faithful, positive, optimist thoughts of billions of people is not at all insignificant. The only problem is that who can cause one individual to act constructively without wondering how other people are doing. Yes, all children are thinking that this is probably the reasonable way: we need not try do good while other people are still doing bad!

Right, those things have no power to think, so they act positively without bothering about the actions of their fellows. But, are we wiser than them when deciding not to act maturely by thinking that our fellows are acting immaturely?
I would have not written this post, if I expect that my thinking, saying, acting will affect all people. But, I am assured that my words will force me to act more prudently, because Baha’u’llah says:
“Beware, O people of Baha, lest ye walk in the ways of them whose words differ from their deeds.” (Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 305)
“The betterment of the world can be accomplished through pure and goodly deeds, through commendable and seemly conduct.” (Baha’u’llah, quoted by Shoghi Effendi, The Advent of Divine Justice, p. 24)
