FEBRUARY 9, 2016

Greetings!

Maybe this "new age" is about stuff surfacing that has always lain below a certain line of propriety, acceptability, and what we believe to be true about ourselves. Take mental illness for example. Does it seem there is now more of it and more of it in extreme measure? I just don't remember knowing anyone in my growing up years that was mentally ill or perhaps they weren't identified that way. Yes, people had nervous breakdowns and then got over them. Or perhaps mental illness was so societally unacceptable that people were hidden away. We actually had insane asylums in the '50s and '60s--not that I'm advocating for a return of these institutions as abuse was rampant. My question is: Is there more mental illness today than in the past or is it now more socially acceptable to admit? If there is more mental illness today, what is the reason? Factors that alter brain chemistry such as food and air pollution, societal stresses, our culture?  I have many questions about this topic and no answers that feel complete. I value your thoughts on this topic.

The Missing Element: Inspiring Compassion for the Human Condition
By Debra Silverman

In this excerpt from her book THE MISSING ELEMENT: Inspiring Compassion for the Human Condition, author Debra Silverman explains what she is asking of the reader as they embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth.

YOUR ELEMENTAL MISSION
    I want to enroll you as an agent of change-and you'll need two things. One is to become acquainted with the Four Elements as they exist inside you. The other is to cultivate the observer's position so that you can stand back and make change by altering the way you see and live your own story. READ MORE>>
