    You Are The Vanguard

    After a time of decay comes the turning point. The powerful light that has been banished returns. There is movement, but it is not brought about by force….The movement is natural, arising spontaneously. For this reason the transformation of the old becomes easy. The old is discarded and the new is introduced. Both measures accord with the time; therefore no harm results.

    Societies of people sharing the same views are formed. But since these groups come together in full public knowledge and are in harmony with the time, all selfish separatist tendencies are excluded, and no mistake is made. The idea of return is based on the course of nature. The movement is cyclic, and the course completes itself. Therefore it is not necessary to hasten anything artificially. Everything comes of itself at the appointed time. This is the meaning of heaven and earth.

    I Ching, Hexagram 24, Wilhelm translation

    "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." -- Margaret Mead

    Vanguard: A group of people leading the way in new developments or ideas. ( The foremost or leading position in a trend or movement. Those occupying a foremost position. (American Heritage)

    You are in the vanguard of a political, sociological, medical, and spiritual shift. Just by virtue of being here now, healing from psychotropic medication, participating in the IAWP community, being where you are on your path, you are contributing to a sea change in the world.

    Wherever you are on your path, and whatever your individual path will be, just by choosing to question and explore the impact of psychotropic medication on your life, you are already a part of this vanguard and you are already contributing to the world on many levels.
