Loving-Kindness Discourse

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

According to the Pāli commentaries, the Buddha originally gave this instruction (of loving-kindness meditation) to monks who were being harassed by the tree spirits of a forest in which the monks were trying to meditate. After doing this meditation in the forest it is said that the spirits were so affected by the power of loving-kindness that they allowed the monks to stay in the forest for the duration of the rainy season. It is often recited as part of religious services in the Theravāda tradition, but is also popular within the Mahayana tradition. Cultivating mettā through the recitation of the Mettā Sutta is sometimes believed to have apotropaic powers …

12 Things I learned in 2012

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Sometimes it’s okay if the only thing you do today is breathe. Self-love and self-loathing are constant, bickering bedfellows. If utilized correctly, both keep you moving forward. The universe doesn’t hand you anything you can’t handle. Others opinions will always be there. In every city, from job to job, they are just opinions, they have as much weight as we give them. People will always find something in your work to argue with. Get used to being humbled, shutting out the noise, second-guessing yourself, and realizing that one out of six times those cretins are right. Most meetings are about meetings, and if you have too many meetings about meetings …

What is Nirvana?

What is Nirvana?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Nirvana is Freedom In this six-minute video, Vietnamese Buddhist monk, author and peace activist, Thich Nhat Hanh, explains the concept of Nirvana, and the path to achieving this magical enlightenment. At 1:20, he begins to delve into the Buddhist meaning of Nirvana, explaining that it’s the cessation of all suffering, one that is only achievable by removing our misconceptions about life, including those on what we perceive birth and death to be. “When you remove these notions, you are free, you have no fear. And no fear is the foundation of true happiness… Nirvana is the capacity of removing wrong notions and perceptions… Nirvana can be translated as freedom from …

On The Plane Home

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

This extract from the on-board magazine is attributed to Loren Eisley: “The journey is difficult, long, sometimes impossible. Even so, I know few people who have let these difficulties stop them. We enter the world without knowing for sure what happened in the past, what consequences this has brought us, and what the future may have in store for us. “We shall try to travel as far as we can. But looking at the landscape around us, we realize that it won’t be possible to know and learn everything. ”So what remains is for us to remember all about our journey so that we can tell stories. “To our children …

Natures Laws: A Simple Formula

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

There are some things that will never change. Natures laws will never change. They have been mentioned, studied, executed and written about since the beginning of time (for our benefit)… Simply said differently by different people hoping we would understand. I’m young. I haven’t been married or had children; I don’t have a mortgage hanging over me. Though through timeless searching and practice I know how to Dezine an ideal lifestyle; by understanding the rules of the universe, these laws handed down since creation are timeless, regardless of age; all you have to do is seek it out and want something greater. It’s a formula, like math. 1 + 1 …

Who Are Your Hurting?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Only ourselves. I have problems, you have problems, it doesn’t help to not take care of them. Since the age of twenty, when I was first introduced to meditation I have been studying and searching for the answers to perfect health: A Mind, Body, and Soul connection that allows me to live limitless! Although back in that time it was more about the outside rather than the inside, body image rather than health.  It is not easy; for man, women, boy, girl, mother, father…  We are exposed regularly to pictures, magazines, billboards, movies, and TV shows that feature images and ideas of what society has trained us to think of …

Limited Perspective

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

  A Coach of any kind… A life coach, spiritual guide, gurus, personal trainer, someone to just hear you. An outside ear and eye. Because one can only see so much without putting their own spin on it, without our own judgements, wants and labels creeping in. Why else do couples argue over the same thing over and over again? They actually can not see the other side; we get so wrapped up in our conditioning, in our beliefs that we (scientifically proven) pick and choose what happened in a situation- we hear the words we want to hear, and see the things we want to see. A guide that …

Whats The Truth?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

3% have 97% of the wealth. Not because they are smarter or more blessed, they just see the world as the observer, they have had a paradigm shift, they know the truth: That they can control what they see, what they do, and most importantly how they act. “Am I everything I claim to be? Do I practice what I preach? Am I wearing a mask?”  … A good place to answer these questions: Your home. Your living space. Your car. Your inbox. These things matter. How they are kept matters. It’s not the big things, but rather the little things. We can’t allow our living spaces to fall into …

Is Life Working For Me Or Am I Working For Life

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Is Life Working For Me Or Am I Working For Life Who’s Your Boss? …. Is life working for you or are you working for life? We live in a world where the business of grabbing ones attention is a billion dollar business. It’s everywhere, billboards, store signs, idiots dressed up like sandwiches, they say we are nothing without each other. The question is do we see it? DO we even realize it? Are we wearing what we are wearing by choice or have we been swayed? Who’s choice was this? Again we must ask: Is life working for me or am I working for life? Who is on the throne? …

Put Down The Holy Grail! How To Discover Your Purpose

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

First we must make a distinction between purpose and mission.  It is not this holy grail chase that is larger than us, and seems so far away, so hard, and so unattainable. No one is sending you on a mission. We do not need to be someones hero. Let us rescue ourselves before we rescue others. Our Purpose is ours. It begins within. It is the self. Finding our highest self = Your Highest Goal = Which in turn Plugs Us In If you want to turn on a light bulb it needs to be plugged in. If you want to find your ultimate purpose you must first Plug In …

Embrace The Unfamiliar

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Anais Nin on embracing the unfamiliar Educators do all in their power to prepare you to enjoy reading after college. It is right that you should read according to your temperament, occupations, hobbies, and vocations. But it is a sign of great inner insecurity to be hostile to the unfamiliar, unwilling to explore the unfamiliar. In science, we respect the research worker. In literature, we should not always read the books blessed by the majority. This trend is reflected in such absurd announcements as “the death of the novel,” “the last of the romantics,” “the last of the Bohemians,” when we know that these are continuous trends which evolve and …

What Could You do With An EXTRA TWO Hours!?

It’s possible. People think their days are set in stone. That the task’s will just keep piling up on top of each other, a never ending cycle. I know that with proper life hacking, outsourcing, and the destroying of all to-do list; there is more than enough time for journeying, work, play and self-love. … If you enjoyed this article Please Consider SUBSCRIBING & SHARE

Stop Being Tired

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

I couldn’t have said it better myself! Jack Lalanne was a (possibly “The“) true pioneer of fitness. He paved the way for pretty much everything we have now when it comes to implementing health and wellness into our lives…. Stop Being So Tired – Jack Lalanne It is something that we can stop, in its tracks. We can’t actually believe that we were put in this earth to constantly be tired- to wake tired, live tired, sleep tired, always tired. Recently I stumbled upon this amazing and timeless video, and so glad I did! In it he speaks on three main points that are causing ill health – and although …

What is the world going to do when you let your wings out?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

When you break out from the crowd? Lets find out! I know that there will be times when you will have to stand and speak. Those who are for you, will stand beside you and say “thank you, thank you, thank you! Because your freedom is my freedom! Thank you.” And some will leave you, your power, your truth will frighten them, they will back away, running back to normal, a world without wings, a sleeping world. I can no longer be small. I can no longer sit back. Like the 14-year-old girl who spoke up against the Taliban because she refused to be silenced. I ask you to join …

The Art of Hustlin

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

The art of Hustlin is doing it!Do IT. “Sometimes life’s gonna hit you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.” – Steve Jobs Simply and Strictly. Without thought. Without a question. Without a single doubt. The abilities are there. Your choices – correct. Your actions – the only actions. Your SELF worth – no one else’s. Falling down is just a part of it. There will be hungry days, sad days, days where the sun will never be bright enough, but we do not fear, these things will not break us! If this is a game, my intent is to win. If this is a journey, my intent …

Not A Virgin

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Martin Luther king Jr, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, The Dali Lama, all born of women. Not miracles. The Same as you and I. They are human beings, born like you and I. Souls with physical vessels. Their mothers were not virgins, they were not chosen specifically by a God, but rather as individuals they woke up!Woke up and saw the truth, took life in their own hands, they became FREE of all the restrictions and labels and judgements, free from the ways of thinking that hold us back. You and I were all born the same way, not of immaculate conception, we all have the truth and power of …

Pride

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Pride is a funny thing. We speak of it in such a shallow and narrow form – we must “swallow our pride”, “leave our pride at the door”, “push it to the side” I think like most words it has been misconstrued, bent up, and changed for the worst! Change your dictionary, change your life This word needs a different meaning! Pride: it’s a sin (the most deadly), a group of lions (My Personal Favorite), a family, a nation, a tribe, a colt, a gang, pleasure, ours, individual, excessive, corporation, something we share, something we fight for, a virtue, useful, brave, something we desperately hang on to, only truly owning …

Always Say Goodbye

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

In a world as unpredictable as ours we must always say goodbye. We must say it with love and compassion. We must do our best to never go to bed angry. The reality is we never know whats going to happen next. We might never see them again, so we must try our best to allow the final moments before parting to be pure love with no anger or resentment. Life is too short to hold a grudge. To not forgive. To not love- loving them without labels, it’s nothing you do for another person, it’s who you are, what you breathe, what you give off, so that your words …

Patience

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.  – Ralph Waldo Emerson It’s an active practice. If we want to succeed, we must find ways to sustain ourselves. The ones who hang around longest often get the crown. We can know our destinies, the greatness that awaits us, but how dare we assume how we are going to get there. We cant quit the good fight because it hasn’t happened quick enough – Persistence and Patience “We reap what we sow”. Keep sowing and a scarf will come, sow some more, you a get a sweater, some more, you get a blanket; Keep Sowing! Don’t passively sit by and …
