Making Room for New Growth
Whenever I talk on mindfulness meditation (or mindfulness training as I call it now) I always throw out these questions:
how many of you are working on automatic pilot? are you so comfortable that you have become numb to the present moment?
"How much pruning do you need to do in your life? Are you strong enough to cut the deadwood out of your life no matter how painful it is?"
