"It seems especially clear that no amount of outer development - computer technology, internet, artificial intelligence, biotech, nanotech, space technology is gonna stop continuing warfare, continuing racism, continuing environmental destruction, because those are the products of the human heart and mind. Our outer development, which is so remarkable has to now be matched by our inner development, and we haven't done that yet. (@jack_kornfield Kornfield in a conversation with @samharrisorg on the app @wakingupcourse )
Our choices matter. Period. We tend to put much more focus and energy into the big decisions we make, but what about those seemingly small ones that you make on a day to day basis. This is a topic that comes up ALL OF THE TIME (not yelling, just enthusiastic) with my clients. Deciding which types of food to nourish your body with, to go to the gym or not to go, to skip out on that 3rd or 4th glass of wine, to not text that guy again who you know wouldn’t be around if you actually raised the bar, to save your money to travel rather than buying the shirt you don’t actually need, to say a polite ‘no’ to the invite that really isn’t your thing, or to start that writing practice instead of watching yet ANOTHER episode of Netflix (ummm this is something I never do 😬). These “small” decisions add up to great big change, and in every moment we have an opportunity to say yes to things that support our life vision rather than breaking it down. Our choices make a difference in our lives. Being intentional with them is one of the best ways you can show yourself that you really do matter 🌱
What does your yoga mat say about you!? No, we are not talking about the colour of your yoga mat 😉 We are more interested to know what it is made of 😎 Recently we met so many yogis with whom we had very interesting conversations about the future of this Planet and how we - yogic Lifestyle living yogis - could contribute to the wellbeing of the planet Earth! All yogis agreed that the (personal) yoga mat is a reflection of a yogis attitude towards the Planet 😊 Owning an Earth loving yoga mat is not a luxury anymore, it is a must if we wish to contribute towards the change! ZENAGOY, an Earth loving yoga brand, only offers environmentally friendly yoga mats that are healthy for you and the planet! Simple design, outstanding performance! ZENAGOY is always with you through your journey! #zenagoymat#zenagoy#zenagoyfamily

Dutch photographer Dick van Duijn @dickvanduijn was visiting Vienna, Austria, in June when he captured an adorable series of photos showing a squirrel taking a moment out of its busy day to smell the flowers. The wildlife, nature, and landscape photographer tells @petapixel he was visiting Vienna especially to shoot photos of ground squirrels. “On the first day we observed them and their behavior,” Van Duijn says. “On the second day, we photographed them the whole day. In the evening just before sunset, when the light became soft and nice, one of the many ground squirrels walked towards the yellow flower and began to hold it and sniff it.” “When I saw this happening in the viewfinder of my camera, I already knew I had captured a very beautiful and intimate moment,” Van Duijn says. “I felt very happy and satisfied with the shot.” You can find more of Dick Van Duijn’s work on his Instagram 👉 @dickvanduijn Image credits: Photographs by Dick van Duijn
This picture made me think about my own relationship to the beach. Growing up only 15 minutes drive from the beach, I have lots of good memories of family picnics and life guard summer camps and hanging out as a teenager with my surfer friends. * * But when I look at this picture...I see a girl alone at the beach. And I remember all the times I went to the sea with my melancholy. With my uncertainties. With my disappointments. * * This picture reminds me of that. The times when things feel too great. And something in us reaches out into the natural world for help. * * Or understanding. * * Or just to be Seen. * * Because that part of the world that doesn’t have the same expectations of us and doesn’t need us to BE anything (happy, ok, in control...) * * And I think in those times, we are also going to these places...like the beach...to find that thing in ourselves. * * To excavate the great vast awareness inside of us that also doesn’t need us to BE anything. * * Do you have a place like this? Do you let yourself retreat there anymore? I hope you will. I love you. 💛🙏 #yogaoffthemat#metime#fridayfeeling#metimegoals#solitude#beachlove#adventuresalone#mindfulmoments#being#mindfullife#womenwellness#wellbeingmovement#emotionalwellbeing

When reaching the climax of a particularly challenging learning opportunity, the last mile can be the hardest and most gruelling, the most testing. . . It is at this point that we need to dig deep to keep ourself on an even keel, to keep our Mind from torturing us with terrifying scenarios of doom and disaster. . . It is precisely at this point that we need to ridgedly employ all the techniques we have learned and have been practising throughout the learning opportunity, allowing no major back sliding regardless of the provocation. . . Over the duration of the learning opportunity the unbeneficial crystallized thought pattern we have been seeking to dissolve has been weakening, yet the Mind does not give in easily or gracefully and It is during this most difficult period that it will seek to re-emerge and control us once more. . . Be vigilant, remain determined and strong and all will be well. . . . Credit for image: KalimaQuotes . .
Being yourself is hard. It is easy to get mixed up by the advice and pressures from the world around you. Mindfulness practices such as yoga, meditation and journaling can help you hear more clearly and walk more surely to the beat of your own drum. . . . . . #onebreathatatime#practiceandalliscoming#yogawithspirit#myyogalife#yogainspiration#8limbsofyoga#contemplativepractice#mindfullife#livingyoga#yogastudent#yogaeveryblessedday#yogathoughts
