Book Cover: Relationships

What is relationship?

- To your friends, family, teachers
- In love, sex, marriage
- To work, money, government, society, nature

Teens understand for themselves that we all live in relationships all the time; to each other, to ourselves, to the world. Modern quantum physics, most psychological insight, and all religions reveal the interconnectedness of everything in the universe--that everything always affects everything else.

Because all life is lived in relationships, it is essential that we understand what relationship is, and what every movement in relationships - to lovers, parents, friends, teachers, society - can mean to us and everyone else. Put together, all our individual relationships create society. Attention to our own behavior in relationship will recreate the world.
