Focus: I am willing, despite my fear, to try something new.
Scientists have found that, when conditions are right, a single event or series of events can trigger profound change across an entire system. This is also known as the butterfly effect.
When an entrenched system begins to break down, old community beliefs give way more rapidly to new information about how to reorder the structure.
When the breakdown escalates to the point that people are prepared to leave what they are familiar with and, despite their fear, try something new, the time is ripe for a transformation.
Excerpted from: A Compassionate Revolution: From Breakdown to Transformation by Sylvia Clute.

RECOMMENDED BOOK OF THE DAY
Beyond Vengeance, Beyond Duality: A Call for a Compassionate Revolution
by Sylvia Clute. Part social policy, part metaphysics, this is a book for all who are looking for a new model for individual and societal relationships. Sylvia Clute explores the roots of dualist thinking in the religious traditions of the world and offers the hope that if individuals–and societies–can move beyond dualistic thinking, we will create a society that is truly just and authentically caring. She unfolds her argument for applying the philosophy of non-duality to not only our criminal justice system, but to all social relationships.
