There is the temptation of taking for granted what the general public believes to be true because it is promoted as fact on all sorts of media platforms, on TV, in specialty journals, or by individuals who speak with certainty on Facebook and YouTube about things they know little about. Once you become aware of what is hidden behind their false claims, your perception of reality changes and you can see the light at the end of the status quo. You have now a serious problem on your hands, though, since the system is set to protect the status quo and sharing your new state of awareness with others is a threat to the system.
This book is not for entertainment. It is not a relaxing read, yet traveling into the unknown could often be fascinating, I know it was for me, especially when you keep an open mind about everything. In places it might read actually like a college course, and I sincerely hope young people would take the challenge and read it, just to annoy old school parents and their professors, if not for other more noble reasons.
On that note there is a little something for everyone in it to be offended or shocked by. The book is bound actually to infuriate many, especially those who make a living knowingly or unknowingly teaching or preaching falsehood. It would also raise concerns for those behind our governments who would want the status quo to remain unchanged. Change does not happen though overnight. Change, however, is bound to happen.
As the old saying goes, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. The teacher is not necessarily a person though. It could be and more often than not is a new and better understanding of knowledge we already possess, and being ready means being open to receiving the new wisdom or to uncovering it on your own.
We are all students and teachers. However, I am not teaching anyone anything in the book. I am only sharing with you what I have found out and what I have seen with the eye of my mind. Last but not the least you are always free to draw your own conclusions.
Other than that, A Time of Change is a big book because, as another word of wisdom goes, to know something you have to know something else.
