The one thing that is certain in life is its unpredictability. Having an awareness that inner and outer circumstances could change in a moment can inform our lives in a profound way.

Many influences shape the thoughts and perceptions of how we view ourselves and the world. Some result in a fear-based perspective that leads to suffering. Others create more clarity and love in our mind and heart. Can we consciously choose which ones will determine how we lead our lives and is it possible to not be run by deeply ingrained habits that no longer serve us?
