It's Time for Change, where do we start
“The manner in which we observe determines what we observe. But ... how aware are we of how we observe and how we can change that? The only place we can observe from is our Way of Being, which is where our perceptions and attitudes live, many of which are deep-seated and out-of-awareness.”– Alan Sieler
