Pure Awareness

~NOW~
The present moment is the only moment there is or ever will be.
The past / The future are only thought projections experienced in the now.

In this now moment, many things come and go, like clouds in the sky. You experience thoughts (The seemingly most commonly recurring visitor), people, places, music, food, emotions, sensations ect. These things are all temporary visitors to the present moment experience, but there is that which remains unchanged throughout every moment (It is always only the present moment that we experience) in your life. It is not something you can touch, hear, taste, smell, or see, but you can be it. It is what allows all these things you interact with to be at all. It is who we are at the deepest, core-aspect of self.

It is the stillness found within every change.
It is the silence where all music is played.
It is the formless space where the symphony of existence takes place.

Happy World Turtle Day!

Turtle habitats are rapidly disappearing, and both turtles and tortoises are endangered due to many global threats. World Turtle Day was founded to spread awareness and encourage learning about how to help protect these animals and help them thrive.

They are adorable, after all.

I mean, how many other animals do you know that can grow a green mohawk?

The sun is perfect and you woke this morning. You have enough language in your mouth to be understood. You have a name, and someone wants to call it. Five fingers on your hand and someone wants to hold it. If we just start there, every beautiful thing that has and will ever exist is possible. If we start there, everything, for a moment, is right in the world.

In Japan’s universal health care system, Hospitals, by law, must be run as non-profit and be managed by physicians. For-profit corporations are not allowed to own or operate hospitals.

Patients are free to select physicians or facilities of their choice and cannot be denied coverage. 

Also

Japan has about three times as many hospitals per capita as the US and, on average, Japanese people visit the hospital more than four times as often as the average American.

I guess, that’s the reason they live so long..

Mentally ill boys exist.
Mentally ill boys are just as valid as mentally ill girls.
Mentally ill boys deserve just as much validation and recognition as mentally ill girls.
Mentally ill boys deserve love and should be hugged.
Mentally ill boys need support too.
Mentally ill boys are not ‘weak’.
Mentally ill boys struggle too, and I for one am always here for them ❤

Those who have found the source of love within themselves are no longer in need of love. And they will be loved. They will love for no other reason but simply because they have too much of it - just as a rain cloud wants to rain, just as a flower wants to release its fragrance, with no desire to get anything. The reward of love is in loving, not in getting love.

From the very beginning you are being told to compare yourself with others. This is the greatest disease; it is like a cancer that goes on destroying your very soul because each individual is unique, and comparison is not possible. I am just myself and you are just yourself. There is nobody else in the world you can be compared with.
