Is change possible? Understanding the choices we make and why!

This video supports us to understand that it is not just sheer will power that will determine the choices we make.
We tend to look at life in a singular fashion, that each choice is separate to every other choice, but the truth is all choices are inter-related. We are made up of a pattern of choices that determine a quality of being that will pre-determine the quality of each next choice.
For true change to occur, for us to be able to truly change the quality of our choices, we must first come from a connection with self, only then will we be free to make a true choice that is truly supportive of ourselves, versus the choices we make that are not supportive to our overall well-being.
Cyber-bullying – A crime that affects everyone
Caroline Raphael on the rise of cyberabuse. This article was first published at Unimed Living. Read the full article here.
Today in our modern world we have a new evil in our midst.
It may not have thorns or look like something out of a horror movie, yet none-the-less, it is a monster that has caused and continues to cause great harm. Today we are living a new brand of bullying and its name is Cyber bullying, and it is contributing to our rise in depression, anxiety and suicide rates.
According to bullyingstatistics.org, more than 1 in 3 young people have experienced cyber threats online, yet regardless of the dramatic increases, not much has been done to arrest this criminal activity.
The statistics are truly horrifying, and even though there is a lot of political talk and media attention, there are no real policies and laws in place that really support those who are victims of cyber-crime.
Unfortunately, it takes the death of a fellow human being to get our attention, or perhaps it would be more truthful to say that it often takes the death of someone famous to prompt us to sit up and take notice.
