How does spiritual transformation lead to cultural transformation?

My understanding is that as we become more evolved spiritually we will begin to act in ways that actually push culture forward. For example if we started going to the gym everyday, we would actually be creating a subtle expansion in consciousness that invites others to visit the gym more often.

    Jul 19 2011: Rohan, I would define spiritual transformation as elevation of our intrinsic powers to love, hope and trust which in turn is uniquely expressed in our cultural traditions and transformations.

    Each culture have great power and conviction to right our world but it needs to be translated and contributed in the language of our mutual interests and wield it to transform our world today.
