If you are not creating what you want from your life, either in your well-being, relationships, wallet or area of contribution, check where you've placed your net. That is, reconsider where you are operating from self-limiting beliefs.
This may sound farfetched but meditation is a direct way to cut through the chaotic monkey mind constantly making excuses and supporting our neurosis. It's that fundamental. Yet so many people pay it so little attention.
How different our world would be if we were all just a bit more compassionate and kind! So what is it that prevents us? Kindness is free, it never goes bad, it has no sell-by date, we can never get enough of it, and we can never give enough of it.
