Collectively, and individually, we need to heal this emptiness and resulting greed for power and control. We need to break our addiction - not only to Crisco and to blind, profit-driven corporate policies, but to all of the short-sighted strategies that cause so many far-reaching problems. We are facing critical challenges in our world today- from the external: ecological, political, and cultural, to the internal: personal, psychological, and spiritual. The solutions are many and complex. One important part of any real and lasting solution - overarching, comprehensive, and readily-available - is healing the disconnection, emptiness and self-abandonment that has become so prevalent.
Until more and more people step up on the path of learning to love themselves and share their love with others, this unnecessary destruction will continue. Fortunately, it is possible to learn, and to develop healthier relationships with self, others, and Spirit. The practice of Inner Bonding and my teachings about healthy food, are two very important opportunities for people to step up on the path of love.
