The most powerful instrument we have throughout life is our Self. Yet many of us never know it or access its great power. Ironically, most of us must overcome considerable resistance to have access to this abundant and regenerating resource. The best way to reduce resistance experienced from others is to know yourself as you truly are and as a consequence be able to see and know others with clarity and realism. We repeat the structure and function of our early relationships until we become participant observers in our own lives.
