Every human being is infinitely more than the sum of his opinions and worldviews. These come and go and can change over time. However, if we are aware that we are the knowing and the space in which all opinions, thoughts and emotions occur, this is a huge step out of the polarization trap…
Being still, relaxed and having access to the state of spaciousness and timelessness are not only essential qualities for human intelligence but also skills for a meaningful life in today’s world, in which we are constantly bombarded with myriads of stimuli every day, every hour, everywhere.
