Wake Up and Experience Your Life

Wake up and experience your life this moment! Without thought, without separation, “What is it?” See for yourself! You don’t need someone else’s answer. If you do this and do not regress into thought, memory, or analysis, it is possible to see something new. Each moment it is possible to let go of the past and wake up to that which is new, fresh, vital, and sensitive. Your life and your relationship, this very moment, are full of unlimited possibilites.
