Welcome back from the summer break!

I hope you had an enjoyable time out there, refueling, relaxing, rejuvenating – whatever it takes to go through life with a conscious mind.

– Marcus

The biggest disease of mankind

“The biggest disease of mankind is that we believe what we think. We believe that we are what or who we think we are.
