THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “THE VISION:  Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place”

Ava Thrower of Detroit, Michigan, says “Excellent tool for school systems/teachers/parents to use to instill in our children (5th – 8th graders) the importance of getting a good education!!! This book includes a great short play that reminds students that there was once a time in American history when it was against the law for everyone to learn how to read and write. It’s a travesty today that so many young people are dropping out of school and not fulfilling their true destiny just because they believe that being smart is wack. This book gives children the tools to set goals to do better not only at school, but at home in order to make themselves and this world a better place.”

Your Love Relationship

by Dr. Deepak Chopra

It has become a truism that to receive love we must give love. This reciprocal action keeps the flow of love alive. Without it love would stagnate. Learning to give runs contrary to some very deep conditioning that we all carry around inside, however.

We have all learned to hold on to a good thing. Letting go of anything precious is hard. Loving people have taught themselves that holding on is possessiveness. Anyone who has ever been trapped in a possessive relationship knows its smothering effect. It isn’t love when another person cannot give you the space to live your own life.

Love is experienced in relationship. Without someone to love you, the feelings of love–the warmth in a mother’s heart, the gladness of friendship, the excitement of intimacy–have no stimulus. That is why the commonest image for being unloved is being alone.

When you are alone, there seems to be no relationship. People who find themselves alone rarely feel any incentive to explore love. They await contact with another person or turn out to seek it. Thus we become dependent on other people to make us feel totally and permanently loved.

This expectation will, however, always be defeated, and although we blame those who failed to respond to us, who responded but then left, who stayed but then changed their minds, none of them is finally the cause of our problem.

The cause is our inability to develop an unshakable relationship with ourselves. The Self is the source of love. People who live their own love stories have learned this lesson above all.
