What a wonderful start to my week! Drove to the 'Bu w my boos to soak in some rays & waves while listening to The Cure and even saw some dolphins pop up to say hello! 🐬 I love going to the beach...something about letting it surround you, reminding me that I am the entire ocean in a drop. 💕🔮💧🌊 #BlessingsAndLessons#Rumi#RideTheWave
जब हम अपने मन को जागृत करते हैं, हम जीवन को यथार्थ स्वरूप में देख पाते हैं और न कि वैसे जैसा हम इसे सोचते अथवा चाहते हैं। हमारे आंतरिक जगत में जाने की यात्रा कई बार दीर्घ और कठिन होती है। हम अपने मन को प्रार्थनाएं करके, चढ़ावा देकर और किसी गुरु के चरण स्पर्श कर जागृत नहीं कर सकते।मन को जागृत करने का मात्र एक ही तरीका है और वह ध्यान साधना है। यह तभी संभव होता है जब हम अपनी आंखें बंद करते हैं, और उस भ्रम को भी बंद कर देते हैं जिसे हम जीवन कहते हैं, तब हम यथार्थ को छूने में सक्षम हो पाते हैं। #rumi#quotes#meditation#mindfulness#awake#awareness#buddhism#hindi
When we awaken our minds, we see how life truly is and not how we think it is or think it should be. It is a long and sometimes difficult journey into our inner-world. We cannot awaken our minds by doing prayers, making offerings or touching the feet of a guru. There is only one way to awaken the mind and that is through meditation. It is only when we close our eyes, and shut out the illusion we call life, that we can touch reality.
El amor no reposa sobre ninguna base. .
Es un océano infinito, sin principio ni fin.
El amor no se puede aprender o enseñar; el amor viene como gracia. .
El amor es el núcleo vital del alma.
El amor es el agua de la vida.
El amor es siempre fresco.
El amor es una emoción, totalmente silenciosa e inexpresable con palabras.
El amor es un almizcle. No lo niegues cuando hueles el aroma. .
El amor es nuestra guía constante en este camino lleno de dificultades. .
Excepto por el amor nada de lo que ves permanecerá para siempre.
Yalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi
In many philosophies, we exist on 2 levels, both of which are worthy of love. On a physical level, we exist in our humanity, sometimes called our “small self.” This aspect of our selves is where the richness of being human is found. It’s where the waves of sense perception and emotion live. The small self does not need to be replaced or conquered or shut out. It needs to be embraced in total love and compassion. However, the small self doesn’t need to be the captain in your life. The small self is usually the one who is obsessed with self improvement and easily gets attached to trends because it wants to be accepted. It’s driven from our basic survival needs. This is totally useful and is what has allowed our species to survive and now thrive. That’s where the other aspect of us exists. Our Divine Self. You can call it higher reasoning, guides, angels, god, atoms, consciousness, whatever suits. But in this aspect, there is no need for self improvement. When you exist as the Divine Self, every thought, word, and action is in alignment with who you truly are and what this existence truly is: miraculous. If you start seeing it all as miraculous, you start to love it all. It’s all perfect. It’s through this effortlessness that whatever “improvement” the small self was seeking in fear, the Divine Self will allow to happen in love for all things, including the small self. You enter relationships because of love. You leave relationships because of love. You stay in your job because of love. You leave your job because of love. You exercise because of love. You rest because of love. You post on social media because of love. You get off social media because of love. You challenge yourself because of love. You let yourself sit back because of love, etc etc etc etc. .
Your invitation is to witness which aspect of you is creating your thoughts, words and actions. You’ll know the difference by how they feel. One feels like a seeking, almost a desperation that usually physically manifests as clenched teeth and shorter breaths. The other feels like a content acceptance and softness with smooth deep breathing and even a light smile. Check in. X

“Take off your mask. Your face is glorious.” – #Rumi
In this world of instantaneous approval, perfection has become quite the epidemic. We appear to have perfect lives, health, relationships, jobs, and so many other things because we are constantly showing our “highlight reel” instead of our “bloopers.” Certainly, highlight reels are more fun and also important to share, but how about a little more balance?
The more we work to portray our immaculate image, the more we set ourselves up for disappointing ourselves and others around us. It’s no wonder we go into shock when relationships we admired are “suddenly” broken, or we find out someone with a seemingly perfect body actually has a severe illness or an eating disorder has plagued them for years.
Yes, many of the challenges we face are so deeply intimate we don’t want to air them out for criticism, public opinion, or approval. It is important to know when, with whom, and how to talk about them. But maybe we’d be much less scared to share our human vulnerabilities in smaller settings if we weren’t so concerned with appearing #perfect.
Maybe YOUR story could ignite #courage in another to share their story! How else could the #metoo movement have gotten started, without so many men and women willing to share? What would happen if we spoke more openly about depression, substance abuse, miscarriages, financial trials, body image, heartbreak, loneliness, and so many hurts that plague us globally?
So today, allow your #truth to set you #free. Know that your courage will bring comfort and bravery to someone else. Fight for authenticity. Hint: if it feels forced, unnatural, or foreign, it probably is. Speak your truth, be authentic, and shine. ✨
