Here is the world

Hearts Expanding

"If you pour a handful of salt into a cup of water, the water becomes undrinkable. But if you pour the salt into a river, people can continue to draw the water to cook, wash and drink.

The river is immense, and it has the capacity to receive, embrace and transform.

When our hearts are small, our understanding and compassion are limited, and we suffer. We can't accept or tolerate others and their shortcomings, and we demand that they change.

But when our hearts expand, these same things don't make us suffer anymore. We have a lot of understanding and compassion and can embrace others. We accept others as they are, and then they have a chance to transform."
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Reasons Why You Are Absolutely Beautiful

Sometimes on a tricky day, we need to be reminded that we are beautiful - in all our messy, human, imperfect amazingness.

You are beautiful. Now, let's get out of our own ways xx

Look for the light

I love this idea. A beautiful video shot on location in NZ and Australia, with the intention of utilising only available light within the hours of dawn and dusk.
 
It really is "Light Therapy".

Life will break you...


Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could. ~ Lousie Erdrich

This may or may not have made me cry a little in class this morning. Oh yoga, you never fail to ground me. xo

Pema on Rough Spots (+ me on Glitter)


From my fave, Pema Chodron:
"The essence of life is that it’s challenging. Sometimes it is sweet, and sometimes it is bitter. Sometimes your body tenses, and sometimes it relaxes or opens. Sometimes you have a headache, and sometimes you feel 100 percent healthy. From an awakened perspective, trying to tie up all the loose ends and finally get it together is death, because it involves rejecting a lot of your basic experience. There is something aggressive about that approach to life, trying to flatten out all the rough spots and imperfections into a nice smooth ride.
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. From the awakened point of view, that’s life."
I just want to be alive, and to have glitter around me. Sounds good right? Don't try to get rid of the rough spots darling, that's where the good stuff is xoxo
