One becomes, in some area, an athlete of God. Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.”
    Martha Graham

    Criss Jami
    “The barrier during self-improvement is not so much that we hate learning, rather we hate being taught.

Thus it takes a bit of determination and a lot of humility in order for one to fully develop.”
    Criss Jami, Killosophy
