"Let the system work"

We all have to deal with systems of some kind—government, school, work, computer, commuter! And if there are problems in these systems, there is a method of healing that can help us.

Throughout the world today, people encounter many different kinds of systems. For example, in the workplace computer systems have revolutionized record keeping and data analysis. Hardly a day goes by that we do not deal with an organizational system of some kind.

Our family vividly remembers the holiday our daughter flew home but her luggage did not arrive on the same flight. After some delay, my husband finally found a supervisor to answer our questions.
