How do we make this crucial leap? The transition from Green to Yellow

In this article I describe how we can see that the transition from First Tier to Second Tier – and more specific from the Green stage to the Yellow/Teal one – is taking place in individuals, organisations and in society. Clare Graves anticipated the ‘momentous leap’ and various people (like Ken Wilber) state that now we somehow are at the start of this happening. My question is: how can we experience and see that we are making this leap and that we’re not still struggling in Green, wishing we were already at the other side of this gap.
