Self-acceptance comes from meeting life's challenges vigorously. Don't numb yourself to your trials and difficulties, nor build mental walls to exclude pain from your life.

Intuition is the inner ability to see behind the outer forms of things to their inner essence.More Goswami Kriyananda [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
