#16 :16 Utilizing those few seconds when you find yourself willing or even desiring just to take a break from the daily grind to observe your mind rather than drifting off into daydreams. Practicing like this, “one drip at a time,” you’ll find yourself gradually becoming free of the mental and emotional limitations that are the source of fatigue, disappointment, anger, and despair, and discover within yourself an unlimited source of clarity, wisdom, diligence, peace, and compassion.
– Mingyur Rinpoche

Needed this today!
I’ve been so busy trying to achieve more more more that I forgot to take stock of where I am, what I’ve already accomplished & what state I am in . . . Pretty broke right now.
Weirdly I was shuffling my tarot & the devil caught my eye. I didn’t exactly think “I Hope I don’t pull that” but I mean the devil that’s fairly sinister right . . . Not the most desirable pack.
Anyhoo I shuddered, reshuffled, did a bunch of “heat tests” on different piles of cards eliminating them bit by bit until I was left with one - what was it?! 🤷🏼♀️
An urgent message to let go of an addiction/habit that is harming you or others.
Slightly concerned by this message as I know I have a few bad habits like biting my nails, picking my skin (which is horrendous atm) being on my phone a bit too much but no major vices I don’t think . . .
I pulled a clarification card.
🎴 The Magician
An action card powered by all four elements - don’t be afraid to start it’s time to make magic.
So I am going to move forward only putting energy into things that serve my highest self & purpose. Nervous nibbles will be stopping, gonna reduce my sugar to see if I can get my skin to sort itself but I’m also going to give it a blooming chance NO MORE PICKING and I’m going to set strict social media times.
No more doing for the sake of doing, busy is not always best.
It’s time to focus on HEALING THRU MAKING MAGIC 🌟
Magic being ease, balance, abundance, contentment, peace, freedom, beauty, honesty & love.
• magic in my thoughts
• magic in my work
• magic in my diet
• magic in my relationships
• magic in my life
🌟Happy Tuesday Lovelies 🌟
And so it begins.
Hot chocolate on the outside, peace on earth on the inside.
We will not see peace in our midst until we have ceased to view everything through polarities. For example, stop seeing your day as good or bad. Observe that it *is*, and then choose to live through it in peace.
The power and peace of God is animating your entire existence, can you join in the joy of it now, instead of someday?
Aura is the name given to the halo of subtle, luminous light that is said to surround all people and living beings, according to several spiritual traditions.
It is linked with some yogic philosophies and beliefs because the aura is believed to be connected with the nadis (channels or pathways) of the prana and chakra system.
Aura work may be combined with other spiritual practices, such as meditation or yoga, in order to help the person to become more present in their being and connected with their self. 🧘🏼♀️ #WiYoga#WiCommunity#TuesdayQuotes
Miss my daddy every single day. My protector. My hero. My loyal champion & steadfast cheerleader. I will never again know that kind of unconditional love & loyalty. A love & loyalty Popsy invested in family, friends and the country he defended. Proudly enlisting in the U.S. Navy, my father served on a PT Boat in the Pacific Theater during WWII. All five Hefti brothers served our nation in combat: Uncle Jim was a Colonel in the Green Berets, first serving in the Army with Patton & later doing more than ten tours in Vietnam Nam; Uncle Bud served in the 110th Mountain Division, skiing into Germany to help free the Jews from Concentration Camps, Uncle Jack served as a Seabee in the U.S. Navy & their youngest brother Paul served in the United States Army. How lucky they were to have all come home to build families and successful careers. And how heartbreaking it must be for the families whose sons and daughters never come home. Thank you all for your service and sacrifice. #veteransday#service#sacrifice#freedom#neverforget#peace#peaceonearth
Until you are ready to give your life and body for the sake of others in reality, which is not the case at present, you can at least do it mentally. As your mind grows used to altruistic love and compassion, your words and actions will naturally reflect that attitude.
– Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
from the book “The Heart of Compassion: The Thirty-seven Verses on the Practice of a Bodhisattva” #potalapalace#notmypic#bodhisattva
No matter which dharma practice you engage in, from ngöndro to offering a single candle, always do it with the intention that your practice will benefit all sentient beings. In this context, “benefit” does not only mean giving practical help, such as offering food or medicine, or feeding people’s emotions, egos and delusions. Here, “benefit” includes aspiring to be instrumental in the enlightenment of all sentient beings; without such an aspiration, it is easy for dharma practice to become self-serving.
– Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
from the book “Not for Happiness: A Guide to the So-Called Preliminary Practices” #dharma#notmypic#happiness#practice
When there is an “I”, there is a perception of other,
And from the ideas of self and other come attachment and aversion,
As a result of getting wrapped up in these,
All possible faults come into being.
Commentary on Valid Cognition, Chapter 2 #notmypic#crystals
By eliminating the self-pitying imagination of ego, you go beyond fear. All fear and other self-pitying emotions come from holding a self-pitying image of yourself.
– Lama Yeshe
from the book “The Essence of Tibetan Buddhism: The Three Principal Aspects to the Path and Introduction to Tantra”
#Pleiades Reality can be found only in understanding what is; and to understand what is, there must be freedom, freedom from the fear of what is.
from the book “The First and Last Freedom”
The nature of phenomena is nondual,
but each one, in its own state,
is beyond the limits of the mind.
There is no concept that can define
the condition of “what is”
but vision nevertheless manifests:
all is good.
Everything has already been accomplished,
and so, having overcome the sickness of effort,
one finds oneself in the self-perfected state:
this is contemplation.
– Garab Dorje
from the book “Dzogchen: The Self-Perfected State”
Mind is eclipsed by many different obscurations; if they are removed, mind’s fundamental nature, like the sun shining brightly in a clear, open sky, can manifest all the qualities of wisdom, compassion, and a Buddha’s abilities.
– Kalu Rinpoche

Today we take an intentional time out to acknowledge our ancestors' reality; to remember that there was a time not long ago where the whole world felt perilous - where 10.5 million people didn't make it out alive. This history is part of our DNA. May we be forever humbled by and grateful for the sacrifices of those passed. #1111#peaceonearth#weremember#remembrancepoppy
Happiness arises as a result of different causes and conditions. If you harm someone out of anger, you may feel some superficial satisfaction, but deep down you know it was wrong. Your confidence will be undermined. However, if you have an altruistic attitude, you’ll feel comfortable and confident in the presence of others.
– 14th Dalai Lama
"Humility and gratitude go hand in hand… Awareness increases so that we become grateful for everything we are given. We have to learn, literally learn, to be grateful for what we receive day by day, simply to balance the criticism that day by day we voice because of powerful emotions.” — Sivananda Radha Saraswati
