"life is suffering.
love is the desire to see unnecessary suffering ameliorated.
truth is the handmaiden of love.
dialogue is the pathway to truth.
humility is recognition of personal insufficiency and the willingness to learn.
to learn is to die voluntarily and be born again, in great ways and small.
so speech must be untrammeled, so that dialogue can take place,
so that we can all humbly learn,
so that truth can serve love,
so that suffering can be ameliorated,
so that we can all stumble forward to the kingdom of god." #jordanpeterson 🦐

Finally created my own nook... somewhere to sit, watch the sunrise, read book, unwind, chill with my friends, watch the city lights, count the airplane passing... appreciate the semi mountain view...enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine... or somewhere i can just let everything go... everything will be ok... #nook#glassview#selfhelp#positiveenergy#meditate#singlemom#love#escape
From the coach's desk: i know how it feels when the environment simply refuses to support you in your endeavors. it can be quite draining. in fact all of us know how it feels, when even if we are charged up, our surroundings seem to have the power to drag us down. oath for today - simply focus your energy on what you can do! it works the best for our mental peace and reduces the number of coffees required to cope with a bad day :) have a lovely monday and a super week everyone! #mondaymotivation
I came across these beautiful flowers on my morning walk. they seem to be perfectly comfortable in the heat and doing their best as flowers. they probably are unaware that they brought a smile to my face. they probably don't even know they inspired me for the day. they were simply being - happy with their basic water requirement. they looked engaged in simply being flowers. it did not matter how many passing by were complaining about the way the world works, how many were agitated with the changing weather. they were simply being! maybe that's all we gotta do - focus our energy on what we can do! have a lovely monday everyone! #thebeingmovement#mondaymotivation
Most people i meet want to activate their sahasra chakra to fulfill the quest for enlightenment - nothing wrong with the quest. don't jump the queue though. see if all the chakras below that are activated and in alignment. if you are suffering from anxiety, poor decision making, insecurity, frustration with social media and generally detached but not happy - we need to first work on our basics! working on the 7th chakra will only mess you up further. we need to begin with balancing and healing the very first chakra. simple mindfulness in doing daily chores can restore this. simply focusing your energy on what you can do can bring about healing of this chakra! happy monday everyone
Einstein said “i have no great talent, i am only passionately curious.”
curiosity can open so many doors. .
i have been experiencing a lot of challenging things in my life as of late. .
for several months, i would find my bed at night, exhausted, weepy, and wondering how much longer i could go on, facing this dark period alone. .
the thing that often got me through this tough patch was trying to stay curious. when i felt like i was certain that the tough times were just going to keep coming and that the loneliness would never end, i felt hopeless. .
and i’d let myself experience that deep sadness for a time, just sitting with it and letting it be. .
and then when i was ready, i would start getting curious. .
“i wonder what the universe has in store for me today?” “i wonder what pleasant things will cross my path today?” “i wonder how i am going to be supported today?”
sometimes i found answers immediately. sometimes it took weeks to understand. .
but by asking the questions and staying curious, i found that i could maintain hope. .
don’t give up. there is always hope. even if it doesn’t feel like it right now. .
you’ve got this. 💚 sending you love. 💚
