Wellness is like a bridge supported by two piers. Each pier is crucial to the bridge's integrity just as the two principles of self-responsibility and love are fundamental to the process of wellness.
Self-responsibility and love are primary expressions of life energy. Together, they form the foundations of wellness, and encourage the free flow of all other types of energy. When both are strong, energy dances back and forth, and the crossing is easy and we feel compassion for self and others.
