Chapter 3 - How to Overcome Reactivity and Stabilize in Higher Consciousness

In Chapter 3, Mana struggles to learn how to control her mind and escape the pattern of destructive reactivity that she has indulged in all her life. Mana's parents also become concerned about her moodiness, and pressure her to start drug therapy. David encourages her instead to take responsibility for her thoughts, moods, and attitudes, and develop mental discipline. In the end, Mana chooses to take responsibility for her mind, rather than become a chemically dependent person.

Chapter 4 - Going Beyond Fear, into Love

In Chapter 4 of WindSky, Mana tells David about her negative experiences in the past, and shares with him her fears and reservations about love and relationships.
