Attitudinal Healing is a philosophy based on the belief that it is not people or conditions outside ourselves that cause us to be upset. We are not victims of the world we see. Rather, our perceptions, beliefs and attitudes are the source of our conflict, pain and unhappiness. We are not only responsible for our own thoughts; we are responsible for the feelings we experience.
By exploring these feelings, we can eventually heal them.
Attitudinal Healing affirms that we are responsible for our thoughts and whatever feelings we experience, and encourages us to re-examine our relationships, bringing them into the present by releasing past judgments and grievances; reminds us that perception is a mirror of what is in our mind. Attitudinal Healing defines health as inner peace, and healing as letting go of fear. It emphasizes listening with empathy and without judgment or advice. It views the purpose of communication as joining and regards happiness as a choice.
Everyone is recognized as a teacher; therefore, we are students and teachers to each other.
Here are the Twelve Principles of Attitudinal Healing.
1. The essence of our being is love.
"Together, we can mature from protest to rally, and from angry reaction to sustained positive action powered by all we love and hold precious." -Raffi
Why do some people have an aversion to social justice? Faith leaders for mellennia have touted it; does that make them "leftists?" If you're not for social justice, are you for injustice? If you're not for fiar trade, what exactly are you for? Let's trade the old political labels and romantic notion s of activisim for this: sustained service to the greatest good fo the greatest number.The world's ills most impact the world's young whose wounding impacts lifetimes and thus genrations. Addressing the universla, irreducible rights and needs of the children in their formative first years, we can grow peacemakersr and Earth stewards in every culture. Call it grassroots developmental social justic, if you like.
"Love is better than anger, hope is better than fear, optimism is better than despair." "So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world."
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.”We here at One Becoming One are doing just that.
