“This book taught me what I did not know about myself. I learned that I’m going to be okay no matter what, that on one can take away what you have inside of you. I also learned there are different parts of me inside that have different feelings. I recommend this book to other teenagers because it explains things we were never taught. It takes over where everyone else leaves off.”

Greetings from the Editor:

Happy Journey

My trip to China was an experience of a lifetime. I changed many of my ideas and pictures of this country from direct experience. Fred Wang was our guide for two weeks as thirty of us traveled by plane, bus, and ship to several cities. We explored the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square in Beijing, walked on part of The Great Wall, saw the terra cotta soldiers in Xian, visited the Dalai Lama’s summer palace in Lhasa, Tibet, sailed down the Yanzi river viewing the beautiful Three Gorges and the new dam being built, and ended up in modern Shanghai. We visited two families, one in Beijing and one in Lhasa, enjoyed several performances, such as the Beijing Opera, and ate Peking Duck. While in Tibet our bus stopped by the roadside so we could see a yak close up. The farmer did his best to keep turning his two yaks towards our tour bus group so we could take pictures as he plowed his field.

The most important experience for me was the relationship the thirty of us tourists developed with each other and with our guide. Fred kept us informed of the rich history and culture as we traveled and kept us laughing, as he had a great sense of humor. He told us he likes Americans because we are open minded and like to laugh. He was much more open and honest than I had expected and we Americans asked him about everything, from family life to politics. During the trip it was helpful that I was reading, Wild Swans, by Jung Chang. This is a true story of three generations of women. It helped me understand the Cultural Revolution, which our guide experienced growing up.

When we left our guide, Fred, at the airport he said, "Happy Journey."

Fortunate Blessings




Transforming Victimization: True Stories #6

Moving Beyond Blaming Myself for My Son's Mental Illness

By Leanne Pollock

I have a 37-year-old son challenged with schizophrenia. Often, I ask myself how this can really be true. Yes, I was in denial for quite a while, not realizing during adolescence that his problems were much deeper than those of most teenagers and young adults. His crash when a girlfriend broke up with him was our first clue he was ill. It took another ten years to really understand how serious his problems were...

Questions & Answers

Question: I am interested in how you distinguish between rage and anger. You said last time, "Rage does not respond to rational communication as anger does."  I would have to say my partner has a lot of anger and it comes out as a 'temper tantrum.’ When he is angry he still doesn't respond to reason.  Also there have been and still are, a number discussions between us in which my partner gets 'angry' (I wouldn't say raging) and issues are not resolved for him because he cannot 'understand' (hear) my point of view. It's like he's convinced that I am out to 'get' him and he can't open his mind to otherwise (even though my request would appear perfectly 'reasonable' to 95% of the general population). He makes up things in his mind that no amount of clean, reasoned discussion seems to change. How do I get him to understand otherwise?

Living from the Source

by Rowena Pattee Kryder, Ph.D.

The Source of creativity in our lives is like a river that must run clean, clear, and full of light in order to keep us in continuous regeneration. The Source is ever pristine, waiting for us to find it within ourselves. How do we discover the Source? By living our lives wholeheartedly regardless of anyone’s opinion, yet sensitive to who and what is around us. When we live from the Source we feel joy and a sense of outrageous gratitude.

Whenever we struggle for existence rather live from a love of life, we let schedules, job pressures, fear of loss rule our lives. When we live wholeheartedly, the Source founts forth within our hearts and minds, and we create our lives anew in unexpected ways. We don’t allow poisonous thoughts to harm us. We get in touch with our instinctual nature, our body, and sensitively reawaken our intuition. To get in touch with Source we need to go to our own depths and clear the dead thoughts and habits we unconsciously took in from parents and society.

Mind Over Genes:
The New Biology

By Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D.

Earlier in my career as a research scientist and medical school professor, I actively supported the perspective that the human body was a "biochemical machine ‘programmed’ by its genes. We scientists believed that our strengths, such as artistic or intellectual abilities, and our weaknesses, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer or depression, represented traits that were preprogrammed into our genes. Hence I perceived life’s attributes and deficits, as well as our health and our frailties as merely a reflection of our heredity expression.

Until recently, it was thought that genes were self-actualizing…that genes could ‘turn themselves on and off.’ Such behavior is required in order for genes to control biology. Though the power of genes is still emphasized in current biology courses and textbooks, a radically new understanding has emerged at the leading edge of cell science. It is now recognized that the environment, and more specifically, our perception (interpretation)of the environment, directly controls the activity of our genes. Environment controls gene activity through a process known as epigenetic control....
