This book has been written to transform and effect social change with real world solutions through integration of a new consciousness mindset. This paradigm shift supports effective restructuring through practical and imaginative solutions by offering antidotes to imbalances in today’s world – therefore restoring our rightful heritage as humans to live / work / play / sustain.

Where has all the care gone? What has happened to humankind? Why are we all so frustrated? What are we doing wrong? Why do we treat each other the way we do? To find the answers to these questions I spent the last thirteen years studying human psychology, behaviors and actions and have come to the conclusion we must act immediately and with passion to change the direction society is heading.

Upon self reflection I have found that I have been effected negatively in my personal life emotionally as well as in my social interactions. I have had to re-evaluate who I am as a person in order to self improve. For without each of us striving to become more cognizant of ourselves and aware of each other, how can we have and also expect for a better world in the future?
