Solving the insoluble

“The greatest and most important problems of life are all in a certain sense insoluble… They can never be solved, but only outgrown.

Staying open and letting go

This is not self-improvement

Something I’ve noticed over the years in the spiritual- or self-development realm, is how easily the path can lead us to self-criticism.
