Gradually, we lose interest in futile external attempts to manipulate the world and become absorbed instead by what we're learning and experiencing on the inner planes. We find more changes happen externally when we address their causes within our minds. It's a major shift – this going from external to internal focus and one that brings freedom in a way that nothing else can. There is not a single “problem” we face that does not come out of some tightly held mental construct. Once we find and question its’ veracity in our own minds, all signs of it's outward appearance disappears or else shifts so dramatically that we hardly recognize it from before.
