    only to expand

    Please set me clear on the following in bold.

    Simply by becoming more aware, I have become a powerful agent of change. There is no need to force anything, only to expand my awareness.

    Does the above mean "there is no need to force anything. I have only to expand my awareness", or "There is no need to force anything in order to expand my awareness", or some other thing?

    Thank you.

    Re: only to expand

    I'd say it's the first- simply by expanding their awareness the person can cause change without the need to force anything. Whether it's true or not is another matter.

    *** NOT A TEACHER ***

    This reminds me of that famous statement in the Bible:

    "The truth shall make you free."
