It’s truly staggering the amount of time and money that people will spend to feel like they are making change in their life. Diets, medications, life hacks, relationship tricks, get rich quick schemes, and organized religion – all industries that have sprung up to give people the illusion of control without having to get to the root cause for which their problems are but symptoms. I’m talking about self-knowledge. When you clear away all the mind-numbing distractions and focus on healing, on growth and on connection you will wonder with a kind of bewilderment at the resources being wasted on the exact opposite of what works, again and again. Meanwhile, those who have taken the journey toward actualizing their center will be waiting on the other side. It’s scary to look that deep at yourself but it’s totally worth it.
