The iris is a wonderful and colorful story-teller. By definition, the iris is that portion of the eye surrounding the pupil and giving the eye its distinctive color. It is the pigmentation of the iris that defines your baby blues or bashful browns. Since humans come equipped with a left and right iris, they possess one set of irides.

Fear is hardwired into our bodies as a primeval response designed to protect us. It is based on a negative anticipation of the future and it floods the system with a cascade of neurotransmitters and hormones that ready us for an emergency by heightening vigilance and bracing for damage. Like an uncontrolled wild fire, fear burns the bodys reserves, often in the face of an imagined threat, which may not actually come to fruition. (F.E.A.R = False Evidence Appearing Real). Fear then easily becomes more of a hazard than its intended object. For someone with a healing challenge, it’s not good to hang out in fear.
Success is not a miracle. Nor is it a matter of luck. Everything happens for a reason, good or bad, positive or negative. When you are absolutely clear about what you want, You only need to copy others who have achieved it before you, And you will eventually get the same results that they have. This is referred to in the Bible as the Law of Sowing and Reaping Which says that “Whatsoever a man soweth, that also shall he reap.” Sir Isaac Newton called it the third principle of motion. He said, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction” For you and I, the most important expression of this universal law is that, “Thoughts are causes and conditions are effects” Put another way, “Thought is creative” Your thoughts are the primary creative forces in your life. You create your entire world by the way you think. All the people and situations of your life have only the meaning you give them By the way you think about them. And, when you change your thinking, you change your life, Sometimes in seconds! The most important principle of personal or business success is simply this: You become what you think about most of the time. It is not what happens to you, But how you think about what happens to you That determines how you feel and react. It is not the world outside of you That dictates your circumstances or conditions. It is the world inside you that creates the conditions of your life. It is not your environment or what you’re exposed to That determines the condition of your health. It is the internal state of your body – Your internal state of resistance, balance, ease and harmony Which creates your level of health and well-being.
Once when my daughter was a playful, spacey three-year-old, she carelessly spilled her morning juice all over the table. She quickly got very quiet and looked at me solemnly holding her breath, perhaps expecting the worst. Saying nothing, I walked over to the sink, retrieved a sponge and placed it in the middle of the puddle in front of her. As she wiped up the mess, I said, “Thank you for being such a good helper.” She cleaned up very thoroughly, and soon got her bouncy and silly stride back. Even though she’d “messed up,” she still felt good about herself.
The phrase “single parent” is new for the twenty-first century. Men and women are designed to repopulate and raise their children together. Both have strengths that help children develop to their fullest potential. Unfortunately, single parents are not really singly parenting unless their husband or wife has died or abandoned the children. These people are not parenting alone, just no longer living together.
These days, the greatest preoccupation we human beings seem to have is our search for the one grand solution to the many ills and problems that plague our lives. Harried and confused, we go about seeking It in all possible places except, perhaps, there where we may find clues to some of the answers. Although through the use of our basic common sense, we know that there is not one particular source from which all problems and ill-fortune emanate, we insist just the same on going about this exercise in futility. But if we were to recognize the one thing that conics closest to being a source of many of our problems, it would surely be self-esteem or the lack of it.
We are living in a society where most of the adult population is insecure and functioning from a position of fear- fear of relating to others, of public speaking, of confronting an important issue, of letting go, of allowing the true self to emerge, etc. These insecurities and fears reflect in personal, family and social habits that compound the issues: food, alcohol and drug (ab)use; crime, violence and war, child abuse; physical and mental illness; environmental and economic irresponsibility; etc. as a result, it is easy to understand why today’s children are confused and why our society is searching for methods to overcome these fears.
Like the tigers he cares for, Steve Sipek, formerly Tarzan in early 1970's B-rated films, finds his peace not with man but with animals. Currently custodian for a black leopard, a lioness, and a pair of two-year-old tigers, Bo and Little Bo, on his Loxahatchee, Florida property, Sipek feels safer with these predators than with people.
We live in exciting times. Like never before, we realize that we can indeed individually change our life, our philosophy, and our consciousness. We are less confined by conventions than ever before. We can recreate the world around us and render it more peaceful and sustainable. We can alter our patterns of behavior and get closer to our true inner being. When we actively participate in positive change, we derive a new sense of purpose not only for ourselves but also for our children. And when we change our own paradigm from one of defensive reaction to one of co-creating the world, we enable our children to live empowered, truthful, and more conscious lives.
There are some psychologists who adhere to the Systems approach to mental health. The central idea here is that each individual lives and functions within a larger psychological system, like the family unit, a peer group, etc., and that within that system, our sense of self and well-being are derived and nurtured, this, of course, is especially true for young children, who, in their immature sense of personal boundaries, are wide open to external influences. Even a person’s sense of his own separateness is learned within the setting of the family system. If this system has the qualities of openness, truthfulness, acceptance, and love, then a child’s emerging self-image will naturally tend to be healthy. Where the communication is stifled or warped in a family system, the individual’s self-image can easily become unhealthy. Besides exploring our own personal history to clean up unhealthy impressions we may be carrying and acting out, there are some life-style choices we can make in our present circumstances to keep our psychological environment “clean”.
Many of us have seen the national TV advertisement sponsored by Cotton Incorporated. It gives us a subliminal message that there is nothing purer than cotton and it is the choice of all Americans as the “comfort of their lives.”
The physiology of improper brain chemistry has been categorized into distinct areas: the genetic and disease theories. In this article we highlight the importance of maintaining brain chemistry based upon these two scientifically grounded concepts.
“To see” is our original nature. To “look-at” is a product of our conditioning. To see is not to grasp a thing, a being, but to be grasped by it.
The four cornerstones of a truly happy existence and potentially long life are life-giving thoughts, emotionally satisfying connections, life-giving food and exercise and spiritual fullfillment.
