With mindfulness comes a responsibility to live from your True Nature and inner wisdom. From deep within a voice will speak from boundless clarity and responsiveness. This is the path to self-discovery and enlightenment. There are those that may criticize you – this is their own ego and false-perceptions governing their words and actions. Don’t let the fear and control patterns of others discourage you from your quest for enlightenment. Have compassion for these people and then move on centered and rooted in the present. Be yourself as there is no better empowerment – it is authentic confidence.
