Doctor Bedi is a true artist. By this I imply more than the fact that he's an excellent writer. Just as the great artists of our time have made us look at life and see it in a way we were never able to imagine, so does doctor Bedi cause us to look at our patients with a fresh eye and a new perspective. Psychotherapy resembles teaching. A Therapist must have endless amounts of energy, hope, and enthusiasm that is communicated to one's patients. Hence the importance of a fresh look & perspective In this, his second little gem of a book, doctor Bedi teams with Dr Matthews to teach us how each of us has not only the opportunity, but also the challenge of working on our ancestors¿ unfinished tasks as well as our own. In other words they try to show us how we can resolve the problems with which our ancestors struggled , while actualizing our own innate potentials and gifts. With lucid clinical examples they define such basic themes as 'what is karma?' They illustrate how karma is basically a combination of action and consequence and demonstrate that in reality karma may span several generations- which is what they call family karma. Doctors Bedi and Matthews have outlined three sources of karma each of us must address to reach our true potential -- individual, family, and past- life karma. If we do this we can ' retire' the karma that we have generated or inherited. There is a chapter on the illustrations of family karma in ancient and modern legends. As Henry the Fifth put it in Shakespeare's play 'Not today my lord, oh not today, Think upon the sins my father did in encompassing the crown!' The authors quote examples that range from Greek mythology to the modern-day Kennedy Dynasty. They show how to explore family dynamics and relationships and describe in detail how exactly we inherit the family karma. At the end of every chapter there are journal exercises that illuminate, with great clarity, the questions and tasks that we need to ask ourselves and our patients. To make sense of our pathway to our souls and our life's journey we have to comprehend ultimately our own roots. They liken this to a river -- the only way to ultimately understand a river is to examine its source in the mountaintops and to follow it to the valleys and springs and marshes. This to me is the essence of the book. Our understanding of ourselves begins with the little rivulets that lie deep inside our psyche, and are fed by ancestral waters that have existed before we were born. We have to examine these streams as they gush forth into the open and become wider and ever more forceful cascades that ultimately shape the bedrock of our personalities and carve out the canyons and valleys of who we ultimately become. This book shows us how!
