our loved ones, our co-workers, friends and community at large and to
our connection with nature. The quality of our life depends on the quality

we are in the service of the body, we need
jobs and trade and sell our body energies.
We are educated to work for those who have control over material
existence and authority over our lives. We are owned. As part of
a mercenary society where
we are drugged into jobs and sell our liberty for money, our energy
is sapped by routine work and we settle into mediocrity. Self-survival
is deeply ingrained in our DNA and
has become synonymous with jobs, but it does not invoke a yearning
for the higher values of life. For generations upon generations
we have been deceived. We
have not been making right use of will, as we harbor ambition or
fear. Affluence without wisdom is self destructive. In the absence
of new awareness we remain what we are-self centered and fascinated
with accumulation and advantage. Living an artificial life we are
craving, competitive, unfulfilled and ever wanting more, yet we

elements in a healthy lifestyle. By strengthening our relationships,
we also strengthen ourselves because when we feel better about
ourselves we are more willing to open ourselves to new relationships

by clearing the disunity patterns at the cause of discord in the
dance of life. The aberrations of society always reflect individual
states of mind and together these form the social dis-eases that
plague us. Individually, we each contribute to the collective
malaise when divisive orientations and fractured thinking within
the psyche are not processed.
Dr. Wendy L. Watson states in her book Rock Solid Relationship,
"if we have been hurt in a relationship, we often gather
an arsenal of weapons, thinking they will protect our hearts from
further damage. But ironically, such weapons can injure us in
addition to those we are defending against. These weapons of war
are thoughts, feelings, and behaviors such as harsh judgments,
jealousies, and sarcasm that keep us feeling separate, isolated,
and lonely. If you are unable to find love and peace and joy in
your relationships, could it be you are carrying around thoughts
that wound love? feelings that bruise peace? actions that kill
These weapons prevent us from forming the healthy relationships
we need in our lives. If we are willing to open ourselves to others
and communicate, we will be able to develop relationships in any
