Awareness is a revolutionary act that can change the world. Many people want to transform themselves and the social problems that swirl around them. However, when confronted with unjust conditions at work, in our communities, or society, some people withdraw. Others react with anger and aggression. Both responses only increase our personal angst and the social dilemmas. However, when we learn how to skillfully respond to troubles with mindfulness, seeing interconnections, and acting ethically, we can transform ourselves and the world.
