(1/2) My favorite image from last winter: a simple visual representation of an emotion—an image that begs for a story, resonates with my deeply romantic view of the world, something lost and then found. An old school, small-town, rural, simple nostalgia. . The intersection of a highly romanticized outlook on life and my otherwise “zen,” “c’est la vie,” “go with the flow” view of the world is something that has come to define my introspective thought process. Every meeting, relationship and encounter has meaning to a larger story—a story I try to write in my head that, more often than not, takes a turn and fails to come to fruition. But continual deviation from the plot is not the end all of the story; rather, that’s the plot in itself: a series of connected stories and trials we interact with but have no direct control over. In fact, our only control is the ability to facilitate our reactions to such events. . A recent book I read quoted Albert Einstein. I won’t try to write the entire quote here (though you should read it), but to paraphrase: “Man creates his own view of the world... substituting this view for the world of experience... making this outlook the pivot of his emotional life in order to find peace which he cannot find in personal experience...” . I believe we all splice plots together, seeing connection in events both when there is and isn’t. It’s been shown we do this with memory—listen to Malcolm Gladwell’s “Free Brian Williams” episode of Revisionist History—and I see a multitude of suggestions that we do this in every aspect of our lives. . In retrospect, many of us determine effect ~=~ cause, working an event backwards to conclude that it never would have happened were it not for circumstance A, B, C. This suffers several logical flaws, but creates a romanticized memory we prefer. Yet, more often than not, working the same methodology forward does not equate to the end result—a situation I used to find increasingly stressful. . For some time, it felt like this was my undoing, my hamartia, of sorts. It seemed like an unhealthy outlook on life based on unfounded, statistically destined to fail expectations.

We have two eyes to see two sides of things, but there must be a third eye which will see everything at the same time and yet not see anything. That is to understand Zen #ThirdEye #Zen

We've invented a lot of words and labels to differentiate and distance ourselves from each other but when you strip away all the upholstery and get down to bare bones we're all pretty much the same. So check out this new tee from NO_SIGNAL on sale for the next 2 days for the bare bones price of $14. 'Cus there ain't nothin' wrong with another unity tee. One love. https://www.teepublic.com/user/no_signal #nosignaldesigns #arttee #unity #unitytee #zencore #zentee #zen #tshirtsale #tshirt #nosignal #NO_SIGNAL #boomboxtee #punktee #teepublic

Who are you? All through his life Saeyoung just saw himself as a slave, he thought his only purpose was to hack, code, program and all other computer things, he even felt like a computer himself, being used as his talents were superior, days of just work and work and work without hardly any sleep and no good food and drinks. He didn’t like this unhealthy talent he had gained but others seemed to adore it and it made him shiver about what the future held for himself. His only source of happiness was the rfa and his brother, but would they stay forever too? Saeyoung was a danger to anyone he went around. The redhead loved hanging with the rfa and his twin, it was the only moments he got happiness, however something wasn’t right, he felt himself being dragged into a deep and dark abyss, the rfa and Saeran slowly fading out of his sight until everything went black, when he could finally see again he was sat at a desk chair, the boy pulled out his phone to see if he could call anyone but strangely all the rfa and his brothers numbers had gone, along with photos and text messages. The hacker entered the rfa chatrooms and was greeted by a message, not from just the rfa, but his brother. The message shattered everything around him. It read, ‘Who are you again?’ Saeyoung didn’t understand, why dint they know him, why wasn’t there a trance of him whatsoever until it clicked in his head, “I-I’ve...Reset...?” - - #mysticmessenger #Saeyoungchoi #Saeranchoi #Jihyunkim #Juminhan #Jaeheekang #Hyunryu #Rikakim #Yoosungkim #707 #V #Zen #lucielchoi #Aesthetic #Grunge

“acredito. acredito sempre. e insisto nos lugares e nas pessoas de luz. persisto sempre que o coração me diz vai. não baixo os braços ao primeiro não mas não bato três vezes na mesma porta. luto com tudo o que tenho pelo que quero e pelo que me faz feliz. ganho fôlego e força nos abraços dos meus. não deixo que me digam que não sou capaz e aprendi a saber escolher as lutas que valem a minha respiração. aprendo coisas novas todos os dias, com todas as pessoas que chegam à minha vida. o meu caminho provou-me que quando queremos ver há luz em todos os lugares, em todas as pessoas, em todos os recomeçar(es). a minha religião é o abraço. e eu abraço muito. abraço sempre. nas pequenas e nas grandes coisas. com força e com esperança. com vontade de apaziguar, de dar amor, de devolver a todos o verbo-fé que me move: #acreditar .” Acreditar sempre... que o melhor (de mim) está por chegar!!! Porque vai! Até lá... viver im dia de cada vez e aproveitar o de bom que ela nos dá e que muitas vezes não vemos (ou não queremos ver) e ser #feliz sempre que for possível! Amen! 🙏😀😍 O #sorriso ... esse é quase sempre o último a ceder... porque com sorrisos... tudo fica mais leve e com mais brilho!! 😍😀😘 #moodoftheday #zen #hope #faith #deepbreath #happyness #happy #serenity #goodmoments #goodenergy #everythingisgonnabealright #fit #fitness #gym #healthylifestyle #lifestyle #estilodevida #estilodevidasaudavel #sun #smile #summer #verao #andagordinhaquevaischegarla #tamojunta 🙏

Take it from someone who has worried and worried for the past 15 years. It does nothing but create personal suffering, which in turn creates a negative atmosphere around you. I know it is very tough, these invasive thoughts just don't let up. Don't believe them, don't try to fight them. Rise above them. Learn to trust the present moment, learn to make peace with it. Once you do, the thoughts slowly shift into the background as they become powerless. The future is out of our control, the past cannot be changed. So don't waste the precious present worrying about some other moment. This is the only moment...this is your moment.

Freedom 🌊 A client of mine in her sixties leaned in and quietly asked “do you think you could teach me how to swim? I want to be able to swim with my granddaughters when they are a bit older.” ✨ To which I responded, “Of course, let’s get started next week.” ☺️✨ Fast forward 2 years, this same woman can swim the entire length of the pool in various strokes and confidently enjoys the water with her grandchildren. 💗 It is never ever too late to learn something new. Whatever it is ... the first step is to speak up and declare your dream. And then take a step and begin ... 💗 And it’s ok to ask for help. 💗 I didn’t teach my client how to swim; I simply introduced the tools. She taught herself by showing up and receiving the direction. She taught herself through practice, through diligence. I simply held the space for growth, stepped out of her way and watched her blossom. ✨

What is most important after you commit a sin is to confess it from the bottom of your heart; in this way the bad effects you are going to experience will also be reduced. And when the retribution takes place, as long as you do not create new bad causes at that moment, the karma terminates. 做错事,最重要的是在内心忏悔清净,这样所受的恶果也会减轻。当受恶果报时,只要当下内心不再种新的恶因,这个业就了结了。 [Dharma Discourse by Master] #faith #mediation #wisdom #calm #zen #dhyana #buddha #compassion #enlightenment #innerpeace #chineseculture #awakenings #lifephilosophy #happiness

From the point of technology to the point of innovation, to focus our health to see beyond disease. We see health, we see energy, harmony, high consciousness. We are vibrant orderly with the universe. When that happens, health is there, because it is inner mostly built inside of us. It is the self natured wisdom that is in connection with the universe consciousness. https://www.zenconference.org/ 👈👈👈 #zenconference #globalzenconference #Zen #zenconsciousness #zenconsciousnessconference #meditation #quantumfield #universeconsciousness #universewisdom #wisdom #imagine #imaginebeyond
