Blazing Trails


How do i want to live the slides. What do i want to bring to it. How do i visualize the ending in terms of expansion or growth and order my gifts to the world before i depart so it brings up. The series primordial questions that have stymied human beings since the beginning of time. Who am i. Why am i here can because you have the presence of anything could happen and that brings vibrancy and also applause to live and that opportunity. Jody to say. I'm going to examine myself. Is one of the riches places for expansion. It's introspection just like so. Many people are introspective. Right now m. I a racist. Do i have a trace of that in me. Let me get educated in certain ways. Let me read this and re debt and so in that same manner of introspection it should continue with everyone all over the world. Mit selfish am. I greedy the things that i dislike in other human beings. Is there a trace of bad inside of me. Let me interest backed and remove it. So that i can contribute something positive to this world. It's interesting that we think that our thoughts are these kind of little individual things that are separate from other people but thoughts are universally connected and we plug into them whether they be negative or positive and so if our thoughts are negative. We're adding to the bonfire. We're adding to the malays and so this period to actually examine your thoughts thoughts that when you're super busy you wouldn't have the opportunity to examine them.
