We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims.
There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly.
As long as you are run by the egoic mind, you are part of the collective insanity... You don’t need to condemn. Just observe.
Zen masters use the word satori to describe a flash of insight, a moment of no-mind and total presence.
The spiritual man conquers wrath by calmness, stops quarrels by keeping silent, dispels inharmony by being sweet of speech, and shames discourtesy by being thoughtful of others.
You deserve to know the truth, heal, and reclaim your freedom. You are not here to suffer or age before your time. You are not here to live with symptoms and conditions that science and research don’t have answers for. You are here because you and what you can offer in this life is unique and important.
