My dear readers, Denial is not a river in Egypt. What will it take to wake up? Or have we allowed ourselves to be so disempowered that we have thrown in the towel? If so, is self destruction imminent? I would hope not.
True love-ability is an attitude. It's a way of being. It's the way you show up in the world. And because it's not based on the reactions of others, it is the deepest security, created from the only thing in life you can totally control, i.e. your own spirit.
Meditation is the catalyst for transformation, self-knowledge and taking action in the world from an aligned place of love rather than a limiting place of fear-doing things from our heart rather than what everyone else wants us to do or what we think we should be doing.

Dreams, relationships, and life how we picture it don't happen from coming up with canned reactions or strategies. Things don't change based on the same old thinking and actions we take, because those are entrenched, normally based in fear.
The lessons that we learn in life are from the hard times. The times when we lost our way, when the path ahead felt broken, when the gray skies covered our vision and when we didn't have the strength to even take and once more step, those are the days we learned the biggest lessons.
It is often said that the best things in life are the most simple and therefore the most under-appreciated.
