The simplest truth, when observed in our daily lives, has an amazing effect.
That truth? What is focused on GROWS.
It is typical in our society today to use labels or groupings or diagnoses as the lens through which we focus on ourselves and others. From this perspective
our view of ourselves, of others, can be cut short, distorted and fragmented.
Suppose instead we could view ourselves and others through the lens that each
person has an inborn, inviolable power to take action in living life. Then
suppose that this POWER becomes our focus. Suddenly, we have a whole new
view of ourselves and of being human. With this perspective, we accept one
another as being responsible, as being in control of the actions we take, as having an integral place in our homes and communities. This is the power of the
ultimate yes or no, it is profound and it can change the world.
A New View of Being Human offers in plain language, a description of the complex, intangible processes that comprise this power of the human being.
Any word spoken, any action taken, any feeling experienced by any person is
the result of these processes. The processes are universal to every person, yet
are unique in each one of us. This book provides the reader with a platform for
considering what it means to grow in understanding the power of being human
and the value of each one's contribution to this world in which we live.
