At times we forget that we are naturally masters of curiosity, joy and optimism. We all come equipped this way from the beginning of our life. This is why when we were children we are constantly amazed with life.
Then as we grow up, we innocently become more interested in our thinking more than life itself by no fault of our own. And as our awareness points more towards our thinking, we start to feel heavy, because that’s what happens when we have our attention on our thou

We are so trained and conditioned by the world around us to wait to start until we are “perfect” so that we can reach a “perfect” result before we fully celebrate ourselves.
