The recognition that it is possible
The recognition that more peace, more joy and more love could be possible is a huge step in moving us in the direction of those very things.
Whether we desire full enlightenment, or better relationships, or less stress, or freedom from the constant chatter of the mind, or all of them; it starts with this first step. It also takes the recognition that it's possible, before anything can begin to happen to move us in the direction of achieving it.
You don’t have to believe that it is possible to live a happier, healthier, more stress free and vibrant life. Your only job right now is to believe that it might be possible and be bold enough to take the first step.
The first step is recognising that change is not only possible - but desirable
The experience of peace, joy and love are our natural state of being and it is every person’s right to choose for it and experience it for themselves.
