As It Is or As I Am – the Art of Becoming

A journey … towards … being

Learning & Being – chapter 2

Here Tony Merry begins to outline the person-centred concept of human personality. What makes us what we are? Do we have any choice over who we are? Are we completely determined by our past? Are we basically destructive in our natures or constructive?

There is not the time to do full justice to the chapter, but the basic premise is that our natures are constructive, not determined by our past, though past experiences may influence us to some extent and that we have the responsibility for who we are and can become, because we can choose and to a significant degree have the freedom to make those choices. This is a very simplistic outline and should not be taken as is, without further reading.
