I have heard many times of people expressing their desire to do something radical to inspire others, to become a role model to follow. Usually those people try to follow a life that does not correspond to our modern life style anymore.
You don’t need to go and live in a cave in a remote mountain in order to reach enlightenment. You don’t need to deprive yourself of all earthly possessions and become a saint to be a living example to others. (Unless that kind of life is your calling in life and fills your soul with joy of course, but as usual it is a personal decision.)
But most people this time, are required to live their life and be the best version of themselves but, in the middle of this modern chaos.
Once a very caring and wise Geshe (a Tibetan teacher) told me that it looked very peculiar to him, how many people from all over the world went to Oriental countries just to shave their heads, buy some old robes and go to the top of a mountain to meditate. But meditate about what? He asked, the real masters are those who in the middle of the city noise and chaos keep their peace of mind unmoved.
Maybe the most difficult task nowadays is inspiring the world by living your own life being yourself in a simple and sincere way.
