You Were Born Complete. You Complete Yourself

Ryf Van Rij

Lack of progress is either refusing to let go of what we don’t need or refusing to accept what we require. As adults we are not children anymore but so many of us behave as though we are children. It’s not that we act as children it’s just the systems that we grew up with… Continue Reading →
