Something to Consider

Life fills every moment. We are either aware of it—and engaged—or disconnected and struggling.

We are either feelingaware—connected to every part of ourselves and the world—or unaware and a pawn in the game of life.

Do you prefer walking through life blindfolded or with your eyes open?

It's your move.
