✒️🌅 h o r i z o n s a horizon so lost in itself the line between sky and sea blurs into space caught between two worlds a horizon so lost in itself had no choice but to become the sum of its parts and two worlds became one.
🌏👣 Privileged to be at the UN in Bangkok this week for Humanitarian Affairs Inaugural Peace Summit for Emerging Leaders. Even better to do it with my bestie @claireemery - whom I credit with giving me a social conscience. You helped me realise the only true way to succeed in this world is to bring everyone else around you up with you; not rise at their expense. Thank you. Proud to say that being selected to attend this Summit makes me a Global Peace Ambassador - something I didn't even care about three years ago and something I'm not so sure I deserve. Peace is something I believe dearly in at every level of life and society. We would solve so many of the world's problems by simply deciding to act out of compassion and peaceful intention for others. It's a choice we can all make. Every single action we take is chosen out of either love, or fear. Choose to act out of love, and we are on our way to both inner and outer peace. #peacesummit2018 #togetherforpeace
passion x passion x passion i love creating, travelling and beauty. @thekaivalyaarts has allowed me to combine the three as we provide a real experience of Nepal along with our peerless art. Swing us a follow and stay tuned. 📸 - ama dablam, as seen from the chola pass. taken by yours truly and seen on art.thekaivalya.com
🙏 NEW VENTURE - @thekaivalyaarts 🙏 I'm extremely proud and grateful to present The Kaivalya Fine Arts; the world's first brand rubberstamping the true aesthetic quality of Nepali, Himalayan and Buddhist sculptural art. I've been very fortunate to team up with the brilliant @thisislumi to bring this project to life. Her family has been at the pinnacle of sculpting for many a generation, having crafted masterpieces for monasteries, venues and private collectors around the globe. However, with machine made copies beginning to flood the market, depressing prices, knowing what is of true artistic creation is becoming harder and harder. That's where we come in. We are not third party agents but invested individuals with a personal connection to this art. For me, it is the time I spent in Nepal and the love I have for their culture. For Lumi, it is family. Please follow our page, check out our website (art.thekaivalya.com), and enquire if you are at all interested in owning a piece of profound quality. 🙏
✒️ NEW WRITING ✒️ Dealing with the Dangers of Altitude It's that time of the year again when thousands of blessed souls will again head to Nepal to undertake what's likely a bucket list item; a trek in the Himalayas. After spending some time in the Himalayas last year with high altitude doctors and trained rescue professionals, I've compiled a pretty decent little guide for @covermore on how to ensure you make it to your destination safely. Link is in bio, and may I add.. One of my top tips for ensuring you're safe is to hire a competent, professional guide. Lucky for you, I have a lot of incredible friends in Nepal who are also exceptional guides. Feel free to DM me if you'd like the hook ups 👌
🌌 s l o w d o w n a n d look. - mk stay still stay small and look. where blue hues meet sky and sea feel the curvature of the earth bending beneath your feet movement is the language of life but only through stillness can we read its words hear it speak and feel it breathe in my body time stands still i see waves rolling into rocks their lullaby soothes my ears i see birds nestled into trees staring back at me i see dirt, once grass trampled, by human decree i see it all i feel it all i hear it all connected to all this life by being still and quiet
🌎 de-centre - mk i can't even write today. i want to be honest. my brain hurts, my heart hurts. i've totally lost connection to the world around me. i'm consumed by ego i've put myself at the centre of it all, and i've lost the centre of myself. i'm chasing. i don't even know what anymore. i used to write with a flow which came straight from the soul. i used to marvel at the stars, feel my soul when i laughed, notice every tiny hue in the rainbow of a sunset. i used to feel the world in my heart and myself in a wave. and now, i'm just chasing. i push the words out, hoping they'll rekindle my rhythm. i feel nothing in my heart and the waves are just cold. the sunsets; almost monochrome imposters. but the imposter is me. i've put myself at the centre of the world and in that, i've lost it, myself and all. take me back, world. remind me what's important, and show me the stars.
🌅 being - mk floating on stillness in another time living a different life where all that mattered was on the horizon 🌅
🍃 spring is a time for growth. for nourishment. for climbing mountains so high you can't see the bottom when you're standing at the top. spring is the season in which you try something. you strive to be your best self. bloom now, whilst the sun's rays welcome you into your own life. 🍃
✒️ found, via lost - mk if we're missing the point what if all we need to do is stop looking?
✒️ s(mile)ensei - mk don't ask me what you should do ask your smile if only your purpose on this planet was merely to smile what would you do?

🌌👣 'You are ready and able to do beautiful things in this world. You will only ever have two choices - love or fear. Choose love, and don't ever let fear turn you against your playful heart.' -- With this brilliant quote by Jim Carrey in mind, I started my own company this week using every ounce of life I've accrued through my travels in the past two years. Every day, I choose love. I wake up every single morning and verbally, mentally and emotionally choose love. I choose to give my energy to what matters. And if I mess it up today, I'll have another crack tomorrow. Such is life. I choose to design my own life. I choose to work on projects that bring me joy, that matter to my heart. I choose the path fraught with uncertainty and obstacles I don't even know how to pass yet. Most of all, I choose to see life as a game; to win is to enjoy it with a full heart, curious mind and light soul.

i wrote this poem for everyone out there who's out there on the grind. ladies and gentlemen, design your life as if life itself depends on it. because, well, it does. let me know what you think 🙏 🏙️🗽 --- high-rise//free-fall - by michael kelly the c b d a city of dreams grind that nine to five just to survive in this man-made machine made of machine-made men where dreams come true but not for you you see this city she shines and she sparkles a promise of a dream you work so hard for only to realise that dream wasn't yours
