“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s-land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again."
.

“The fundamental anxiety of being human...” that cracked me open. Wow! Engrossing. “Awakening is not a process of building ourselves up but a process of letting go. It’s a process of relaxing in the middle—the paradoxical, ambiguous middle, full of potential, full of new ways of thinking and seeing—with absolutely no money-back guarantee of what will happen next.” #pemachodron #wisdomspeaks #meditationinmotion

How you feel isn't who you are ❤️
.
I am awful.....NOPE. You FEEL awful.
.
I am bad......NOPE. You FEEL bad.
.
I am tired ..... NOPE. You FEEL tired
.
I am unloved ......NOPE ( I could continue...) .
.
Please be careful not to confuse the way you feel for who you ARE. It's not the same thing.
.

Feeling bad doesn't mean you ARE a bad person. That's just your perspective in a moment you're experiencing, that given time, will all change🤔
.
COULD YOU THINK ABOUT IT LIKE THIS? .
You are the whole sky. The big boss. You contain the whole world within you, you are already enough, already perfect, nothing missing.
.

Your feelings? Oh those guys are just the weather .....they are impermanent. Just passing through ....Sometimes there will be sunshiney feelings ☀️ and sometimes rain cloudy 🌧️ ones. It's all part of your own special ecosystem and it's all ok. Try to remember that feelings and all we need to do is let them pass through.
.

You, glorious human being, are the WHOLE SKY. Please don't forget this.
.
How you feel is NOT who you are. .

8.14 Tuesday Gratefulness

I am grateful for a day of rest and napping. I'm grateful that I'm learning the fine line difference between numbing out and relaxing.

I am grateful that I'm learning to flow and not fight... in terms of my emotions, my thoughts, Hubs's delusions and anxieties, my beliefs... I'm finding a comforting home in the Present Moment more and more.
I am grateful that my heart is open. May it open even more and may everyone's hearts be open.
I am grateful that I can grieve and be okay with grieving.
I am grateful to be learning more about astrology. It's so fascinating and helpful to me.
I am grateful to be part of many different kinds of sisterhoods. I'm grateful that I can receive and that I'm willing to give with Love. I am grateful to be a part of a family.
I am grateful for numbers and budgets. I am grateful that my relationship with money is improving and maturing.
I am grateful for my Mom. Always.
I am grateful for the magical healing energy of holding hands.

Grateful for @ed.dailey @pemachodren @healingenergytools @waynedyer and art.

'Commitment' is seen by some as a scary word. But it's only scary when we think it means we have to be perfect all the time and we don't feel confident we can live up to our idea of perfection. Committing to something means that we are truly serious about our pursuit for a higher goal. We can commit to a lifelong practice of examining our lives closer beyond what we think we know, to facing our fears consciously, to evolve to a higher version of ourselves and serve our world with more presence, awareness, and connection. That doesn't mean we won't fall and fail along the way. But when we make this commitment and each time we renew it, it plants a seed deep in our heart and mind that never really goes away. In keeping the promise to ourselves and sowing this seed, we do our best to never harden our heart or close our mind to anyone. #openheartopenmind

HOW TO BUILD INNER STRENGTH
🔻🔻🔻
"You build inner strength through embracing the totality of your experience, both the delightful parts and the difficult parts. Embracing the totality of your experience is one definition of having loving-kindness for yourself. Loving-kindness for yourself does not mean making sure you’re feeling good all the time—trying to set up your life so that you’re comfortable every moment. Rather, it means setting up your life so that you have time for meditation and self-reflection, for kindhearted, compassionate self-honesty. In this way you become more attuned to seeing when you’re biting the hook, when you’re getting caught in the undertow of emotions, when you’re grasping and when you’re letting go. This is the way you become a true friend to yourself just as you are, with both your laziness and your bravery. There is no step more important than this." ✨ #PEMACHODRON 🔷From her book Living Beautifully With Uncertainty and Change 📚 🔻🔻🔻

I LOVE fostering puppies!! I love watching them grow and explore. I love seeing their personalities develop, and love giving them a safe place to thrive. This little guy was from our last litter. He stole my heart. I was not in the space to adopt him, it wasn’t the right timing. Letting him go was difficult, but I knew it was what he needed. It was what I needed as well.
Learning more about impermanence and allowing all to be what it is, not being attached to anything is difficult but brings more joy and peace in the long run. I am practicing impermanence with puppies, then I can work on impermanence of death. 😂😬 #pemachodron #thichnhathanh #puppies #puppiesofinstagram #buddhistteachings #impermanence #fosterpups #iinhealthcoach #intergrativehealth #mindfulwellness #cutepuppy #letitgo

LESSONS FROM VIPASSANA // I am not my thoughts. I am not my feelings or emotions. I am the witness, the seer, the awareness behind them.🌟
.
.

Identification with thoughts and emotions can create expectation and suffering. For example, 'I am happy' creates an expectation to feel and experience happiness all of the time and we suffer when we do not feel it. .
.

During vipassana, I came to realise that the true nature of everything that we experience in life is impermanent. This lesson reminds me of the Pema Chodron #wordsthatresonate ... 'you are the sky, everything else is just the weather'. As I sat in stillness and silence emotions and thoughts arose and then would fall away, the good and the bad came and then disappeared. .

What I'm reading right now #theplacesthatscareyou by #pemachodron It's my first reading and I cannot put it down! When I first saw the title I was terrified to pick it up, to read it. But, precisely for that reason alone, I *knew* I had to get it. I'm only a couple of chapters in but already I have my pen and journal to jump off the cliff and explore my fears, to face them head on.Eeeeek!!!!
I love #pemachodron for 101 reasons but mostly because she takes difficult to understand concepts and presents them in ways I can grasp and implement. Plus...all her writings are armed with compassion + humor.
I strive for a millionth of what she has. And a beginners mind. And calm in the face of storms. Oh!! And wisdom:)

This eclipse season has me feeling raw & restless. Fantasies of escape distract me from the deep work of simply being with the discomfort. What happens if I breathe? If I walk? If I lay down in the grass and listen to the cicadas all around me? Remembering during this chaotic time that all I need for stillness is within me right now ⭐️

I struggled for so long with just flat out hating myself. Too loud, said the wrong thing, not cool enough, awkward, my body, my clothing... I would wake up sometimes and cringe just thinking about the day before. All useless. All in my head. I listened to a lecture by Pema Chodron, “Bohdisattva Mind”, that completely changed my life. In it she discusses how we can love a child so easily, but ourselves we cannot. She said that our job is to love ourselves like a sweet innocent child. To forgive ourselves unconditionally. To treat ourselves with the love and grace that we deserve. And I began to love myself. Over the years it became natural, and of course there is always a struggle to quiet that voice, but in time it has shifted. Practice self acceptance and self love. #pemachodron #love #bodhisattva #lovewarrior

We have a choice. We can spend our whole life suffering because we can't relax with how things really are, or we can relax and embrace the open-endedness of the human situation, which is fresh, unfixated, unbiased. - Pema Chodron, Living Beautifullly With Uncertainty. (From the book I'm reading)

You are the boss of you. People may trigger certain emotions in you, but you make the decision to follow that triggered emotion and react or let it move through and respond with clarity and wisdom. Meditation helps immensely with this. #pemachodron #innerpeace #meditation #warrior #peace

Tonight, at 2am, deep into my ever present insomnia chronicles, my edges are big and sharp and jagged. The leave big, open wounds. And trying to fight those edges, just makes the cuts deeper. Embracing what pisses us off, what upsets us, what takes us out of our comfort zone is the ONLY way to dull the edges.
Thanks Holly @hipsobriety for sharing this...because I needed this.

“Our habitual patterns are, of course, well established, seductive, and comforting. Just wishing for them to be ventilated isn’t enough. #Mindfulness and #awareness are key. Do we see the stories that we’re telling ourselves and question their validity? When we are distracted by a strong emotion, do we remember that it is part of our path? Can we feel the emotion and breathe it into our hearts for ourselves and everyone else? If we can remember to experiment like this even occasionally, we are training as a warrior. And when we can’t practice when distracted but know that we can’t, we are still training well. Never underestimate the power of compassionately recognizing what’s going on.” ~ Pema Chödrön 🐘❤️ Follow the link in our bio to read more from Pema, and find your compassion toward yourself and our world.

“How we live is important, particularly at the level of mind. Every time you’re willing to acknowledge your thoughts, let them go, and come back to the freshness of present moment, you’re sowing seeds of wakefulness in your unconsciousness.”
- Pema Chodron

The impermanence of and in this life is what makes it beautiful, fragile and meaningful. It is what compels us to cherish each fleeting moment, value souls who meet us along the way, treasure the memories we make, makes us realise how precious some things in life are and at the end, it simply makes us understand and appreciate life, in its wholeness, through the joy and the pain, through the laughter and the tears, through the ups and the downs and also, sit in gratitude when you feel like life has suddenly decided to be at a standstill. It takes you into this beautiful crazy adventure where you honour and celebrate your life. You honour and celebrate YOU. And by God, you grow, you grow through it all and you learn... Grow, learn, experience and repeat, in no particular order, grateful through each event and no event 🙏🏻 And this is exactly what makes this crazy journey so amazing!
The very wise words of Pema makes you ponder and wonder. The truth is in the lines. Whether we are ready to accept it or not is what is up to each one of us. It is always a choice each of us is free to make.

“The essence of bravery is being without self-deception. However, it’s not so easy to take a straight look at what we do. Seeing ourselves clearly is initially uncomfortable and embarrassing. As we train in clarity and steadfastness, we see things we’d prefer to deny—judgmentalness, pettiness, arrogance. These are not sins but temporary and workable habits of mind. The more we get to know them, the more they lose their power. This is how we come to trust that our basic nature is utterly simple, free of struggle between good and bad.” ✨ #pemachodron ⭕️

So the next time you encounter fear, consider yourself lucky. This is where the courage comes in. Usually we think that brave people have no fear. The truth is that they are intimate with fear.
🔴
When things are shaky and nothing is working, we might realize that we are on the verge of something. We might realize that this is a very vulnerable and tender place, and that tenderness can go either way. We can shut down and feel resentful or we can touch in on that throbbing quality.> ✨ #pemachodron ⭕️ #whenthingsfallapart 💍

EVERYTHING #PemaChodron#NomadChic IS LOVE

“Life is glorious, but life is also wretched. It is both. Appreciating the gloriousness inspires us, encourages us, cheers us up, gives us a bigger perspective, energizes us. We feel connected. But if that's all that's happening, we get arrogant and start to look down on others, and there is a sense of making ourselves a big deal and being really serious about it, wanting it to be like that forever. The gloriousness becomes tinged by craving and addiction. On the other hand, wretchedness--life's painful aspect--softens us up considerably. Knowing pain is a very important ingredient of being there for another person. When you are feeling a lot of grief, you can look right into somebody's eyes because you feel you haven't got anything to lose--you're just there. The wretchedness humbles us and softens us, but if we were only wretched, we would all just go down the tubes. We'd be so depressed, discouraged, and hopeless that we wouldn't have enough energy to eat an apple. Gloriousness and wretchedness need each other. One inspires us, the other softens us. They go together.” #pemachodron
