When something like the notion of positive affirmations is explained in such a precise technical language, it feels like I’ve just received an upgrade.

One question:
Has he seen his parents since he left his homeland? I agree with evolving and preferring not to be seen as we were but to abandon loved ones seems cruel, I speak as a son and parent. It is seldom of consequence how others see us when we know who we are.

“Nothing more important than know who you are, the path you’re on, and the it’s final end.” Thank you Dandapani. It’s exactly what I needed to hear today. I’m so grateful I stumbled on this talk, although, nothing happens by chance. Where our awareness grows is where our energy flows. Namaste.
