Freedom is found in letting go of what other people think about the way you live your life AND letting go of what you've been programmed to think about your life. Let go of the rules, the need for acceptance, validation and approval. Live for yourself and your joy. This will naturally extend to others and teach them by example how to find their own joy. Everything is within, not without. It's not selfish to live by your own rules, it's self-ful. It's time we stop playing out these egoic cycles of false humility ("I deny myself for the well-being of others") and start living for our own heartfelt desires. If you died tomorrow, how would you spend your last day? Now, go do that.

I love my quiet life, it nourishes me so much. I feel more connected to myself, to life, and to nature. I can hear better, see things more clearly and touch life. This is something we must cultivate everyday - As my father says - Heaven & Hell is right here. We are living it now...up there in the sky or 6 ft under the dirt there is no paradise. Life is what you make of it.
When we are constantly pulled externally by our senses always reaching to indulge in the senses we become a slave to them and we suffer (whether we realise this or not..) we forget how to be, how to come back home to ourselves and the present moment - whatever that may be, joy or pain. True life is to meet what arises as it is The Buddha encourages us to practice the middle way of moderation, between the extremes of sensual indulgence and self-mortification. Keep tuning in, be honest and be kind with yourself - this precious life how do we choose to live it? When do we stop escaping from our true reality?
Freedom of running..
Well this kind of spoke to my soul today. At the end of last year, after a year of solid work and a good six months of research I gave an entire project ( that was very dear to me and I’d spent thousands of hours on) away. Without going into ‘why’ it was basically becoming the very thing that is wrong with the world. It wasn’t just the ‘what’ of the thing being done but importantly ‘the how’. It was lacking in care. So in order to make space for something brighter, truer, kinder and more authentic I simply let it go. Now I say simply - it was far from simple. It was excruciatingly hard. One of the hardest things I’ve done to date. Add to that I’d just lost my brother from cancer and it really topped off a rough year. But it felt necessary to let go, and it felt kind amidst all the unkindness. And I knew and know in my heart I acted with grace. I’ve reached a point where nothing is worth compromising integrity for. Not even all the deadlines and shoulda coulda woulda sparkly riches of success - though these lure many others and push them beyond conceivable human limits. What I care deeply for is love, people and the health of our planet over ‘things’ and in taking this action of non attached giving with expectation of nothing in return, I know I was walking my talk. The unexpected thing I realise 6 months later is I actually lost nothing. It’s all in me. All the learning and growth and research. All the wisdom of the experience. That is truely of value. Plus I’ve moved on to much greener pastures that couldn’t have come had I not experienced the fallow ground that came after this uprooting. So there we go, a tale from the other side. The side that seemed to ‘lose something’ but actually gained everything. #give#grace#letgo#trust#kindness
Okay but seriously,
THANK YOU so much @_alexagracedance for convincing me for over 2 years to come and attend one of the best classes at BDC!
This class was absolutely incredible, FUN and sexy!
Had a great time and for sure coming back. Seriously if you’ve never attended a Burlesque dance class by @tonyguerrero5678 then you’re missing out.
So much Fierceness & FUN!!!
For so long I thought I needed to do more to advance my practice. Until I got injured. Then I learned that what I really needed was to do less. To release the egos need to accomplish more to measure my self worth. When I backed off in my practice I learned a lot about myself. I learned the ways I overextend myself. The exhaustion that had crept into my cells. My body started to relax. Things came easier, felt better. I got so attached to doing less that I started getting rid of stuff. I asked myself, do I really need this? And if the answer was no, then I let it go. My life became simpler that way, in a lot of ways. I learned how to appreciate myself. And my self worth increased. It’s funny how the universe sends us those tests. To learn. To trust. And let go.
Let go! The day is done..
Tomorrow is a new day and a present if you are allowed to see it!!
Cherish each day for it brings new knowledge if you are paying attention!!! #letgo #payattention #students #gameoflife
