Project Censored #25: “Chaptered Out”: US Military Seeks to Balance Budget on Backs of Disabled Veterans”

The Perfect Paradox: Letting Go Is The Key That Opens The Door to Fulfillment

Certain beliefs might lead us to hold so tightly to things that we push it away. In the energy of a need to control, others can feel repelled, not attracted. There is a great lesson here of the difference between coming from fear .vs coming from love in situations like that when dealing with a significant other, child, friend or even money or that new job you want.
