“Although we have limitless potential, we can end up feeling boxed in to a particular role in life or a particular understanding of who we are. How does this happen? We limit ourselves when we adopt specific identities, and then believe that this is truly who we are and must be.” ~The Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje , in The Heart Is Noble: Changing the World from the Inside Out, ©2013
