Albert Einstein

Tarot: It’s Not About Being A Spiritual Human Being It’s About Being A Decent Human Being!

Practice can change your relationship to emotions, so that instead of being swamped by certain feeling states, you can hold them, contain them, see into their essence, and ultimately, use emotions in the service of your liberation.
