Don't ever wait for another person to make your life better, that's your job. You are in charge of you and nobody else is responsible for your experience in life. Nobody will ever complete you; you are already whole. If you need a change in your life, don't wait for a hero, be the hero and save yourself. 💙
Happy Monday ✨ #monday#newweek#handstandlover
We tried to do a handstand picture but clearly one of us is a little bad at handstands😆
Do you guys sometimes get these looks by people like "Wtf are they doing?" when you take pics?😁...When we take some of our funny photos people around us are giving us these looks😃😃..We don't care, of course😆... I mean the worst thing that could happen is we bring a smile to their faces so it's cool with us😁🙈... And after all nobody knows what you're up to and what you're doing it for, so next time you're bothered by people's opinion think of it that way😊
Can you tell which one of us can't do handstands?😸
It is an old idea....
That love is conditional.
Somewhere along the way,
You bought into the notion
That love lives
Only in certain containers,
Available to the chosen few,
Limited by time and space,
And contractual binds.
Somehow you got lost in the myth
That love is something
To be acquired, hoarded, or lost.
That love means conforming.
The only thing holding you back
is your small-self,
Ego idea of love.
The need to be needed.
The desire to parade love in symbols of success.
The bodily urge to be physically close to creature comforts.
Wanting to please
To keep the peace
And play nice.
And, dear heart,
What holds you back is also the key
To your freedom
The ego, as I see her, is just doing what ego does.
Of course she wants all this, and more!
So, let’s offer this affirmation:
I see you. Feel you. Hear you.
I am grateful for all the ways you carry me in this world.
It is a gift that you have allowed yourself to be seen.
I hold you, as you are.
And I also declare that I am ready
To draw your desires
In service to a higher vibration.
Do not fear, dear ego,
I am not throwing you away.
I am alchemizing you.
It is time to continue….
You are no longer mine to hold.
As you slip through my fingers
Only space remains.
The boundless pulse of Unconditional Love.
A Love that permeates all.
Saturates our beings.
Seen and unseen.
Simple and profound.
Interconnected and non-attached.
This Unconditional Love
Here or there
It always is.
All we need.
🦍 Chair sitting is our passive enemy! It gives us momentarily comfort and long term movement restrictions. The fact that most adults today can’t access this movement pattern is merely further evidence of how much we have been influenced our natural poise and balance.
🦍 Simple movements like the above in the picture will develop your postural coordination and free your mobility.
🦍 I could go on about the “monkey squat” benefits forever! Make sure you do them at least a little bit EVERYDAY, let’s get bendy and strong because one or the other is too easy. Go hard or home 🐒
“The story of Cassandra, the woman who told the truth but was not believed, is not nearly as embedded in our culture as that of the boy who cried wolf - that is, the boy who was believed the first few times he told the same lie. Perhaps it should be.”
