meditation and recovery

Don’t worry about ten years from now. Don’t worry about what happened a couple months back. All that matters is what’s happening in the present moment.

Imagine how life would be different if you just completely let go. Surrender your ego. Let go of your negative thoughts, worrisome plans, and unrealistic expectations. Imagine how much more peaceful things would become.

Life would be so much simpler.

When you learn about yourself, watch yourself, watch the way you walk, how you eat, what you say, the gossip, the hate, the jealousy – if you are aware of all of that in yourself, without any choice, that is part of meditation.
—  Krishnamurti
Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape.
—  Bell Hooks

If You Want To Heal Faster, Do This

 When we embark on the healing journey our vibration will change drastically during this period of time. As a result of this we will be attracting different people into our lives, as well as seeing others leave - it is important not to take this personally and instead see it as a result of your healing process.

Healing yourself requires you to be in complete alignment with the intention you’ve set for yourself - becoming more fulfilled and content in your daily life. Therefore it is necessary to adjust your current behaviours and belief systems to get to where you want to be.

Changing your behaviours and beliefs will undoubtedly cause others to question your actions and this can result in friction with friends & family. Understand that they are not on the same journey as you and do not take it personally if they criticise or outcast you from their lives.

These are changes you’re making for yourself - no one else. This is your healing journey - no one else’s. Keep your wellbeing in mind at all times and prioritise how you want to feel, after all - you’re living this life for you, not them. 

Many of you are living your lives in accordance to what will make others happy - this will never result in long-term fulfilment because your happiness is dependant on what others think of you. 

Now is the time to take responsibility for your own happiness - start acting in the ways that make you feel good and disregard what others think of it. If you want to take the job you want instead of the one your parents told you to - do it. If you want to break up with your partner instead of pretending to be happy - do it.

Love yourself enough to take responsibility for your own happiness.

Peace & positive vibes.

A new way to be.

“I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, “Kiss me harder,” and “You’re a good person,” and, “You brighten my day.” I now live my life as straight-forward as possible. 

Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.

Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be- to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether it’s your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands. 

But there is nothing more beautiful than being vulnerable.

And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.

We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans. 

We never know when the bus is coming.”

You may not know exactly where you’re headed in life, but where ever that may be, keep going. Allow your heart to guide you in the right direction.
