My Mom would say it in a way that may be more understandable, but today I am going to talk about how to live a fuller life by understanding that this life is not all it seems. I am going to talk about actionable ways to experience life more fully, by opening your mind and soul to the possibilities of a life that lies outside the realm of our limited experience.
Each of us has a belief that we are the sum of the labels we have been given or have chosen for ourselves. However, what we are is something much greater, much more profound. Oddly enough, we discover what that is when we stop clinging to the labels we use to define who we are. Better still, the world experiences more growth when we let go of the categories we use to describe who we are. Listen how.
This week I wanted to spend time talking about some of the wisdom that I have received in my meditations. I don’t do this to focus on my meditations solely. The goal is to have you experience some thoughts that may help you understand your practice better, and/or lead a calmer life.

Earlier in my meditation life, the first time I experienced wisdom in a session, I was somewhat uneasy. I had never experienced some of the things I was feeling in my practice sessions. Thankfully, I had many great teachers who told me that what I was experiencing was not only “normal”, but actually something to aspire to. Today, I provide that reassurance for you.
I vacillate between telling people that meditation is easy or telling them it is hard. I waffle because it's both. The process itself can be easily learned. However, to make it a beneficial practice it needs to be practiced each day. Regardless of what I say, most people become frustrated at some point with their sessions. Today I talk about why that is and how to rethink meditation to avoid those pitfalls.
The perfect way to end the week is to talk about the five states of mind linked to growth and divinity in a sense. Today, I talk about the states of mind that propel us on to a higher state of existence. Come listen
As I talk about Buddhism, it's important to realize that we are merely skimming over these tenets. But that's okay. I want you to get a feeling for them so that your curiosity is peaked enough that you will continue your studies on your own. Today I talk about the 10 States of Mind.
Yesterday I talked about Karma. I thought it was time that you got caught up on what it is. We all hear about it, but kind of talk about it in a very casual sense. And when I say time for you to get caught up on it, I meant me too. Today, I am going to have William Woollard answer the big question, can we change our Karma? Come listen.
