It has become increasingly obvious over time, that human beings are not living in harmony with each other, with our environment, or with other life that we share our world with. The harmony and balance we need to improve our world must come from our own mind. If our personal attitudes are modified and become more wholesome and positive, our world will definitely change for the better. Since we cannot force others to change, we must be the one who changes, so that we act as an example and inspiration to others.
