One of the biggest misconceptions of empowerment is that the goal or sign of empowerment is our ability to create a life without discomfort, problems, or setbacks. This is actually backwards. Our empowerment and liberation is actually measured by our ability to face life's discomforts with ease, grace, and confidence.

In this week's episode Mat and Ash discuss the transition that comes from realizing the path to liberation is actually through discomfort - not from escaping it. Furthermore, that suffering only arises when we resist the uncomfortable things of our life.

The enlightened yogis are not in bliss because they have no discomfort, they are in bliss because they can face discomfort with ease. This is the path to true freedom and lasting happiness.
