Understanding the “story” I’ve always thought it was interesting that when people were having tough times they were always asked what was wrong with them. What if, for example we asked, “What happened to you?” Could we begin to understand the ways in which people’s versions of their own stories impact the way they make meaning of their experiences now?

Live your daily life in a way that you never lose yourself. When you are carried away with your worries, fears, cravings, anger and desire, you run away from yourself and you lose yourself. The practice is always to go back to oneself. Dwelling in the present moment, know this is the only moment. Vow to let go of all worries and anxiety in order to be light and free.
