Key Takeaways

  1. We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness.
  2. The present contains the past and the future. When I look deeply into the present, I can touch the past and the future. My ancestors continue in me and are present in every cell in my body. I can be in touch with all my descendants because the future generations are already present in me, every mindful step made with solidity, peace, and freedom nourishes me, my ancestors in me, and countless generations of descendants waiting to manifest. We practice mindfulness and keep our body and consciousness healthy, not only for ourselves, but for our ancestors, our parents, future generations, society, and the world.
  3. Before we can listen to another person, we need to spend time listening to ourselves.

What I got out of it
