“When we understand that cultural philosophy and individual perceptions are actually acquired beliefs that determine not only our biology but also the world we live in, we gain personal and world-changing insight. We cease to be dazed accident victims and claim our right to become personally empowered co-creators and architects of a brave and loving new world.”

“Genes reflect potential, not destiny. Do not accept the fatalistic message of genetic determinism. You are not “stuck” with your genes. Take heed of the growth and protection lessons from cells and shift your lives into growth whenever possible.”

“Loving oneself isn’t hard, when you understand who and what ‘yourself’ is. It has nothing to do with the shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes. It’s so beyond all of those things and it’s what gives life to everything about you. Your own self is such a treasure. You have to sit kind of quietly and ask, Who am I? Who am I really?”
