A new approach…

By Vichara

While most of us can identify the fears we have there are certain fears, which we cannot label or reveal. These fears refuse to be revealed because it would confront and destroy the last barrier of knowing completely oneself and our true purpose, which are both connected. By facing this fear of impermanence we will see that it is not a nihilistic but an optimistic way to see each day and act as a catalyst for a new approach to see the world and our place in it.

Did you know?
"Puissant" has some powerful ties to some more commonplace English words. Although "puissant" has a considerably fancier feel than "power" and "potent," all three words share the same Latin ancestor: "posse," a verb meaning "to be able." "Power" came to us by way of Anglo-French "poer," which is itself thought to have come from "potēre," a Vulgar Latin alteration of "posse." "Potent" came from "potent-, potens," a present participle of "posse." From "poer" came the adjective "pussant," meaning "able" or "powerful" in Anglo-French, and English speakers borrowed that to form "puissant" in the 15th century
