  • Hi Candace, If we look at the histories of the world’s nations, read the scriptures of all the known religions, see the plays from ancient Greece…etc. … we don’t see any time when humans were any more loving than they are now.

  • That’s what happens. You notice that you’ve become distracted & you return to your breath or whatever you’ve chosen as a focus.
