If we have a dream and are willing to stretch to achieve it then what holds us back? Usually we hold a thought or an attitude of which we may be totally unaware. However, like the operating system on a computer, it quietly works behind the scenes. We remain unaware until something happens to get our attention and cause us to question ourselves. Criticism is easy and strengthens the operating system. Understanding takes time and care to bring acceptance and realign our energy. Therefore, having the tools to understand ourselves helps us to get beyond the hidden aspects of self. Meditation is one such tool – and if you feel you are not able to meditate then daydream how you would like your life to be – and watch opportunities open up for you to play with.
