There Are No Obstacles To Transcending

There Are No Obstacles To Transcending

by in General, Heart, Inside, Personal Power.

There Are No Obstacles To Transcending There are no obstacles. Applies to one kind of ‘meditation practice’, transcending.  Transcending is easy, effortless, fun, and effective. It generates refreshment, peace, energy, and joy. Because of all these satisfying characteristics, we practice it regularly. Our only problem is that very few people believe us! They prefer to think that all meditation practices are difficult, or frustrating, or have little effect on daily life.

22 Time Saving Hacks I’ve been testing and adjusting various productivity techniques for the past five years, read lots of books (most of them repeating) and here’s some of my findings: It’s not about time. It’s about energy. We try to squeeze as many hours in one work day, to be “productive”, but in the end everything depends less on time, and more on your focus, motivation and overall well-being (all of them linked directly with energy levels).Some of the key findings: Decide what’s important because in 5 years, 80% of what you do today will not turn into anything.
