  • So I’m classified as an #Avalokiteshvara #Buddha The bones have spoken and I’m going to chant this #omManiPadmeHum a 100 times a day to relieve depression and free me from the cycle of rebirth. I’m still not sure about the chanting concept but lets see what happens. I have to admit its intriguing. My “friend” immediately insulted me after relaying this information. “Oh whatever Buddhism works for you...” snarkily (sic?). He adheres to a strict form of Japanese Buddhism in which its founder almost got murdered and banished to an island.  Ive been told they prefer to practice indoors but maybe thats why he’s so depressed? He kinda just sits around and chants every once in awhile and doesn’t seem happy, free of desire, motivated and is extremely envious and jealousy driven. I think what he fails to understand is Buddhists have many different flavors and what works for you. I like seeing results, however, and adhering to strict tradition doesn’t make total sense because the world around us evolves and so should we as well as our thoughts and practices.  Plus he insults me whenever I talk about my path and thats irksome.  Wanna know how a #neoBuddhist overcomes his #suffering / #anger? Writes about it, forgives arrogance, and still decides to play nice by going to coffee in morning. #TheFourNobleTruth #TheEightFoldPath #JustBeNiceBro #PracticeMakesPerfect #BuddhaApproves So I’m classified as an #avalokiteshvara #buddha The bones have spoken and I’m going to chant this #ommanipadmehum a 100 times a day to relieve depression and free me from the cycle of rebirth.

  • Lesson 17 
I’ve learned that “Love without consciousness becomes need, dependency and control.” - @drshefalitsabary.
.
When I met the guy that I was bound to love forever, I was just starting to figure ME out as a young woman. Little did I know, this relationship was the beginning of discovering my internal dwellings with love and my ever growing journey of becoming the best me
.
I had to shed years and years of borrowed guilt, heaviness, obverseved lessons on what meant to love, to be loved, to be a girlfriend, someone’s woman/life partner. Back then I was not in touch with the source that makes me “me”, so I acted from memory
.
Unlearning alllll of this was harder than learning anything, which is why I feel like many people break up so easily because they rather not do the leg work of seeing what could possibly be wrong with the way they are in a relationship.  It took me years to figure out patterns and to really get to the bottom of me. That me who’s here to love and to be loved. That’s all it is to it. When you see things from a perspective of LOVE everything changes
.
So I thank the universe for bringing me the man that brought me back to myself.  Thank you my love for being so patient through all this journey of self-discovery and for remaining your loving self while I was wilding out. Most importantly, when the climb got hard, you at all times gave me the space to be ME. Which taught me I don’t need you to be my truest me, I just need me. We’re just here to share all the love we can with open hearts and without judgment

  • 🇺🇲 @point_27 -  Surrendered
"And he withdrew from them about a stone's throw, and knelt down and prayed saying, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.” —Luke 22:41-42

It is easy to portray this "pretty and perfect picture" of Christianity to outsiders. You have to remember we live a lifestyle of surrender and that's hard. In the military, surrender means to welcome defeat by your enemy. It implies weakness and loss which leads to subjugation and control by your opposer. For the follower of Christ, surrender to the Lord is not surrendering to an enemy, it's surrender to one who can be trusted and knows you better than you know yourself. This surrender to God doesn't infer that bad things will not happen to you in this life. You will encounter challenges. Moments, where you are reminded again to yield to His will and not submit to yours—which might include hard decisions. And with it will come imminent suffering which may not feel "pretty and perfect." DO THIS: When something comes to mind that you wish would go your way, surrender—but to the right person.

PRAYER: God, my life is full of moments that are opposed to you. In these moments my I surrender to your best for me, even when the world or my decisions may lead to opposition by the world.  Vince Miller

  • In Angel's #BEstory (link in bio) she said in regard to BE Open: "I think just mutual human understanding is probably the most important thing."⁣⠀
⁣⠀
What is mutual human understanding? ⁣⠀
What does it mean to BE a human being? ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
For me - BEing human means to live in duality. ⁣⠀
To be able to experience both suffering and joy. ⁣⠀
To be able to create beauty and cause pain. ⁣⠀
To be able to innovate and destroy. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Sometimes I struggle to understand how humans can be both the creatures that construct such beauty in their works of art and acts of humanity, while at the same time be the ones to inflict so much pain such as the massacre in Christchurch, NZ last week. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
I'm slowly learning that it is being open to both understanding and *not* understanding. That we don't always have the answers. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
What do you think it means to "BE Human," and do you think we are losing our understanding of what it means? ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
How do we remain open to one another?

  • "In his book Night, #ElieWiesel writes candidly about his horrifying childhood experiences living in a #Nazi concentration camp. Having gone without food/ drink for three days, thousands of Jews were driven out of their barracks at dawn into falling snow & herded into a field. Forbidden to sit or even move much, they stood in line until evening, waiting for a train that would take them deeper into Germany. The snow drifted in a layer on their shoulders. Finally, their thirst intolerable, one man suggested that they eat the snow but they weren’t allowed by the guards to bend over. The person in front of the man agreed to let him eat the snow that had accumulated on the back of his shoulders. That one act spread through the line until there in a frozen field, what had been individuals struggling with their separate #pain, became a #community #sharing their #suffering #together." -Sue Monk Kidd #lightuponlight #holocaust "In his book Night, #eliewiesel writes candidly about his horrifying childhood experiences living in a #nazi concentration camp.

  • Self #exploration through 
breath is beautiful, and daunting....
This is where the real shines through, the unreal exposed.
#Vipassana 10 day silent 
#meditation unlocks a world hidden beneath the defence layers of our predispositions, shines a #light onto the #shadows of the strongholds of the #ego #narrative....
We inherit traits from past  #generations as well as our parents, though these can be seen as either something we are stuck to deal with in this life.....or use them as the building blocks to rise into our #conscious #evolution and break the loops of #suffering  for generations next, but this requires choice and #commitment in freeing 
ourselves mentally from the story that led us here in the first place.....
