Sustainability Principle of energy is a guide founded in the great
principles of physics and the insights of neural psychology that enables
us to transcend the limitations of our ego and act in more sustainable
It is an
eminently practical tool that a child of ten can use. Its main requisite
is a sense of compassion with its associated spirit of inclusiveness,
inquiry, reflection and honesty. It is a guide in physics and a
psychoanalytic tool that enables us to evaluate the relative
sustainability of individuals and groups.

the balances and flows that sustain humanity.
Our integration is such that our
acceptance of change cannot be understood without our acceptance of
stewardship of our actions. Thus the use of the stewardship/change
examples of denial of change include:
ways of thinking with states of being.

energy with its measure (power).

lose, destroy or in other ways alter the nature of energy.
application of these two profoundly related questions is required because
as evolving beings we continually
become aware of new perspectives, states, flows and forms of energy. What may
be a sustainable use of a symbol yesterday may not be so today.
The value of the Sustainability Principle of
Energy is best understood in its practical application –see the
Sustainability Index of our prime symbols used in acceptance and denial.
