Introduction - Self-Responsibility and Love

Self-responsibility, with love and compassion, is the first form of energy in the Wellness Energy System. This creates an environment, or context, within which all other energy expressions can be better considered. Self-responsibility and love flow from the appreciation that we are not separate and individual entities, nor are we made up of separate parts. Rather, we are united in a single energy system along with everything else in creation.

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. - Charles Darwin
Wellness is like a bridge supported by two piers. Each pier is crucial to the bridge's integrity, just as the two principles of self-responsibility and love are fundamental to the process of wellness. In each case, the piers support a connection between two distant points, allowing for movement back and forth. This freedom to move between different places or attitudes, rather than rigid attachment to any particular one, is the hallmark of wellness.

Self-responsibility and love establish a life-context in which freedom and flexibility are naturally occurring states of being. They are primary expressions of life energy. Self-responsibility and love together form the foundations of wellness and encourage the free flow of all other types of energy. If either principle (or pier) is weakened, living harmoniously (or traversing the bridge) becomes more difficult. When both are strong, energy dances back and forth, and the crossing is easy.
