Guided meditation is like taking a guided tour on a bus and silent meditation is like getting off the bus and exploring for yourself. Both are a holiday!
As the creators of our lives, just like an artist, from time to time it’s important to step back from the canvas and take a look at the whole picture.

But, I’d like to focus on the more subtle effects.
