Our brains have not been able to cope with the added pressure modern civilization and living has demanded. The speed of life has escalated to such a degree that it is proving a challenge for many to contain and manage the pressure.
We are today more out balance than ever before which is why it is easy to accept the challenges being brought against the effectiveness of our current social systems. Politics, economics, science, sexuality, health, ecology, justice, religion, and spirituality are all being questioned and challenged as to their true nature of reality.
Drive, ambition, and intellectual stimulation from the material world have compromised our ability to relax and rehabilitate, to nurture our relationships, to express our creativity, to contemplate the meaning in our lives, to consider our purpose, personal identity and legacy.
