In “I Am the Change I Seek” (published by Xlibris), author Kathleen Suneja chronicles her experiences as a grassroots political activist in India during the 1970s and illustrates how readers can overcome adversity through self-affirmation and realizing one’s goals.
“Enlightenment is a process of recovery and renewal of the self that is achieved with meditation and deep introspection of the inner being,” Suneja said.
As a leader of a democracy movement, Suneja was the first person to call for an end to conflict in a New World Order at her town hall meetings in India in 1977. Her actions led to a worldwide movement for democracy against the totalitarianism and tyranny which became known at the "Total Revolution" to freedom. She has advocated for stricter environmental policies, an end to nuclear proliferation, and roadmaps to peace in conflict-ridden regions. She has worked on rehabilitation of refugees and women’s empowerment issues.
“Democracy and freedom are innate to each individual and the peaceful movement for democracy through community organizing and grassroots activism is based in the belief that humans should be trusted to make decisions best for themselves in relation to their communities,” she said.
Using her past experiences as a framework, Suneja guides readers through several essential steps for developing self-knowledge in order to reach enlightenment and meaningful personal revolution.
“Peaceful change comes when each of us finds the inner strength to make the changes necessary to overcome adversity.”
