"focus on what you can do and anything is possible. The only limitations are in your own mind."

No, anything is not possible. Our minds are what makes us THINK anything is possible. We are told, "If you have enough FAITH you can move a mountain". If that were possible, how come nobody has ever DONE that? We need to focus on REALITY and we can REALLY do a lot. But we can't do ANYTHING. There are a whole lot of things that are humanly impossible to do and on top of that we have very little control over our environment,
we only THINK we do and we are FOOLING ourselves. We have no control over the rotation of the earth. People can measure it all day long but can't do anything about it. We should stop focusing on bullshit and start focusing on stuff we can ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT.

Our minds can be our worst enemies..A mind is like a parachute and only works when it is open..So open your minds without fear and cast off all prejudices of our society and religion.
Anything you can do, I can do better....says the song. Nearly everything is possible..Do not listen to negative voices, real or imagine..Never say: Stupid me..Avoid negativity at all cost and tell yourself every day: YES I CAN

Sybil, what are the benefits of cat pee?

My yoga to me would be just laying flat and relaxing. I would fall a sleep and dream of YOGA!

Cat's purring is healing!...Their vibrations can heal many diseases...
