Change from the inside out

The Dalai Lama said, “I believe it is essential to appreciate our potential as human beings and recognize the importance of inner transformation.” We change from the inside out.

The Dalai Lama talks about how we can change, and says that the first step in bringing about change involves becoming aware of our harmful behaviors and learning about their negative effects. He says that change takes time, though a sense of urgency about the necessity of the change is helpful. “By making a steady effort I think we can overcome any form of negative conditioning and make positive changes in ourselves.”
