Quotes

Most humans like myself are bound by the limitations of our own minds, ingrained beliefs that stunt our possibilities to truly be whatever we wish to be. Following the directions and absorbing the teachings and meditation practices can slowly but surely show us the way to enlightenment and a far more fulfilling existence.
