Here are some of her insights followed by my brief lesson application:
- Social media clearly makes us feel uninteresting compared to others. "From a night out on the town with your best friends to a solitary asana on a mountain top overlooking an idyllic valley; from swimming with wild turtles in the limpid coves of Maui to riding white water rapids in Norway; from volunteering with big cats in a South African sanctuary to champagne dining at Le Jules Verne in Paris. And the catalogue of bucket list images grows exponentially on a daily basis as travelers Instagram their latest adventures." The lesson: don't compare what's someone posts about their exterior lives to your interior life
- We are never enough. "Are you spiritual enough? Are you practiced enough? Are you vegan enough? Are you retreated enough? Are you guru-connected enough? Are you enlightened enough?! " The lesson: don't succumb to the temptation of spiritual materialism, buying and chasing experiences.
