If we want a new beginning we must stop pretending and start changing. That means setting goals and rejecting guile because it only estranges us from ourselves. Real change begins when we are self-aware and sincerely devoted to our motives. It also requires us to be mindful of our means. Else we will change things that should remain. That's what's so strange about change. In making it we sometimes un-do the glue that binds our soul.
