Conscious Living Includes Happiness

Where does Happiness Fit? We look to our family lines to resolve inherited patterns, beliefs and traumas. No longer bound by obsolete thinking we move forward toward something that reflects the modern world, ourselves as individuals, and where our consciousness lies today.

Do we lose ourselves in them? Do we shun love or increase our ability to love? It is really what we do with our boundaries that count. Unhealthy boundaries lead to depression, anxiety, dependency, and illness.
