Are you making progress? Are we making progress as a society?

While science has dramatically veered away from the notion of genetic determinism, educational institutions and the media still program the public with this archaic belief. Since we did not pick our genes — at least as far as we know, and since we cannot change our genes if we do not like our traits, we are left with the understanding that genes control our fate and that we are “victims” of heredity. This belief is especially discouraging to those born into families whose lineage express what appear to be “genetic” diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and obesity.

Too many have said, “Hey, I can’t do anything about it anyway, so why should I care? Overweight? It has nothing to do with me, it runs in my family.”

You may be wondering what can we do? How do I become self empowered? Here are some belief changing resources: https://www.brucelipton.com/other-resources#belief-change

  1. Heartfelt thanks for your knowledge and inspiration Bruce. An empowering link to help others ‘turn on their light switches’. Would love to study Psych-K .. but without the horrendous costs, any suggestions?

    • Hi Marie, just an idea: Have you looked for a book? We have grate books in order to learn more about psych-K here in Germany. I also highly recommend Dawson Church and his book “The Genie in Your Genes, Epigenetic Medicine and the New Biology of Intention”.

  2. It is my idea that we ARE not our genes, but that we can decide how to use the apportunied they (the genes) give us. I like to give the following example: our bones can break, but we can prevent them to break.

  4. Yes, simply we cannot blame on our genes. Environmental influence does play an important role in the modification of genes. It’s all about character!
