  • Boundaries and Borders: Why They Are Important

    06/11/2015 Duración: 31min

    Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced life. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not.Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others.The same way boundaries are meant to protect us by what we will allow into our lives, physical borders of a country are meant to the same thing. People become citizens of a country and are held together by a common culture and language. This belief in borders, language and culture is what binds us together and helps us prosper and advance as a culture.

    20/10/2015 Duración: 30min

    Are we living in a free society or are we living in a construct such as the one depicted in the movie "The Matrix?"Today's news highlights that reality both parties are worried about the rise of Donald Trump and we wonder "Why?"Shouldn't the Republicans be ecstatic that they have a real candidate that can win the election? But they aren't... and neither are the Democrats.Both parties know that Trump is an attack on the power structure that exists and that means bad news for both parties.The sad fact is that both political parties have become lazy and complicit in the destruction of the nation. We now live in a society where both parties now share political power at the expense of the governed.Trump, like him or hate him, represents an attack on the power structure, particularly since therre is a growing feeling that he can win.The pundits and the media prefer the populace believe that we live in a country where we have freedom to choose how we are governed.
