  8. 8. Inner TransitionIn the end this is about a change of heart; if thatdoes not happen alongside the windmills, I’m notsure there’s really any point. (Overheard at a Transition meeting) Personal Resilience Positive Visioning Change is happening – our choice is between a future we want and one which happens to us. Emergence
  9. 9. Cheerful disclaimer!“Just in case you were under the impression that Transitionis a process defined by people who have all the answers,you need to be aware of a key fact.We truly dont know if this will work. Transition is a socialexperiment on a massive scale.What we are convinced of is this: • if we wait for the governments, itll be too little, too late • if we act as individuals, itll be too little • but if we act as communities, it might just be enough, just in time.”
