    Bliss Point part 1 with Dr. Brown

    in Self Help

    Clinical Psychologist and author Dr. E. Douglass Brown will be our special guest speaker today, on this re-broadcast show talking about bringing out the Bliss Point in our Children. The makings of the spiritual bliss point are deeply embedded in each infant. Whether the makings of the spiritual bliss point become an actualized experience depends on the person, once an infant, learning the difference between his or her true self and “somebody” that he or she has come to believe is “me.”  Wise parents encourage a child to ask the right questions and to seek and accept the right answers. Unwise parents encourage a child to only ask questions when given permission from others and to accept answers endorsed by them and others.   Wise parenting models and guides towards the bliss point.  Unwise parenting models and guides towards the "miss" point. This is also true for adults.
