Life is Expanding. Look at nature and you’ll see that living things continue to grow and expand. Anything not expanding is dying. In that same way we must be expanding the expression of ourselves in the world to really live.

“If someone told you that your natural state is one of radiant happiness and joy, and I’m telling you now, and you don’t feel it at the moment, then what’s going on? It’s not that it’s not there, it’s just being blocked by something. But What? It’s our carefully crafted self image and it’s being meticulously managed by our own ego.
