Christine Ranck shares how we limit ourselves unnecessarily by focusing too much on our complicated lives.
The people you love are 64.37% water.
Actually, the people you love are 99.9999% empty space… (since the atoms we’re made of are mostly empty space).

Why then, instead of unlimited, do we often feel helplessly trapped in the limitations of our complicated lives-with all our fears, disappointments, and heartaches?
Imprisoned by complexity, we’ve nearly forgotten our true nature-even though the evidence is all around us.
