Special Lesson Learn to Make the Most Out of Every Moment
  • Posted Date: February 25, 2021

Would you like to make the most out of every moment of your life? If we want to make the most out of every moment of our life, we have to let every moment in our life touch us.

We're touched by irritation...

Every moment is the right moment to start seeing ourselves as we are... regardless of whoever may be our "partner" of the moment. Maybe it's the person in that long line with us, complaining about how slowly things are moving.

Why can't we shake our sense of being incomplete in spite of all we've acquired?

And it is part of a ceaseless flow in which the idea of "good" and "bad" only exists because in that flow has been born a certain creature, given an imagination that has created a self in the name of itself. And there you have all of the problem. When you resist what life brings and don't accept it, all you're really doing is....
