In a world that is so fast, it can be hard to be patient. We are being taught that we can have most things instantly. However, patience is so powerful and can teach us so much. Most of all, it can teach us how to be fearless.
There was a lot of talk this week about the supermoon. It was a once in a 40-year phenomenon. It got me thinking about how amazing it is to say something that only happens once in 40 years and the lesson that holds for us.
Most of the time, our thoughts are like a river. They flow consistently, one after the other. However, there is a gap in our thoughts. Becoming aware of that gap is a powerful way for us to work with them.

I received a message today from one of my students questioning the importance of releasing our negative emotions. Working with our negative emotions is important - how we work with them can be the difference between releasing them and solidifying them.
There are two types of ways that we struggle in the world. One of them is part of being human. The other is optional. By understanding that our mental suffering is optional, we can start to relieve ourselves from the hold that it has on us.
I love reading. When I was a kid, I read three books at a time. In our modern world, we can find that we are reading many articles, but is it essential to also read books? I am speaking with Dr Danny Brassel, who has the wonderful title of being America's leading Reading Ambassador in today's podcast.
