A new lens to look through. Hear the pain in people's speaking. People who have an ear to hear can hear. You will no longer tolerate what you used to tolerate. A second point of reality.

Wrong disempowers people. Upsets indicate a "right" that's been violated. Notice when you are angry that you are the only one around. The only constant thing is you. Business is made up. It's invented. We invent our world through language. If it really turns you on, you may want to inform your face. There is no "right" way. A chair is only a chair because we say it's a chair. - Mal Pancoast
