no judgement accepted

When you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You appreciate it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree.
The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying “You’re too this, or I’m too this.” That judging mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.

“ I have seen the throne of the gods, and it was empty. ”
“ I will not suffer even an unknowing rival. You must die! ”
“ Tell me… where is your Maker now? Call him, call down his wrath upon me! You cannot. For he does not exist! ”
“ Common ground is the start of all negotiations. ”
“ Though darkness closes, I am shielded by flame. ”
“ It spoke of judgement instead of acceptance. It should encourage the good in everyone, rather than rebuke us for our sins. No one should be turned away from our doors. No one is without worth. Whoever you are, whatever your mistakes, you are loved. Unconditionally. ”
“ If we’re going to change it, why not change the whole thing? ”
“ I’ve known mages. Some of them were better people than me. And yet I’m free and they’re not. It’s not right. ”

“ We must do so with open hearts and open hands. ”
“ I see what must be done, and I do it! I see no point in running around in circles like a dog chasing its tail. ”
“ At some point, power becomes its own master. ”
“ They will stand in the fire and complain that it is hot. "

“ They forgot about him. ”
“ I came through to help… and I couldn’t. ”

“ We pick the ones willing to make the hard decisions… and live with the consequences. ”
“ Every great war has its heroes. I’m just curious what kind you’ll be. ”

“ I would not trade it for anything. ”
“ I hope there’s a damn good punchline coming. ”
“ The truly great ones can keep their distance. They don’t get attached to their people. ”
“ I always wind up babysitting my informants and worrying about their families. ”
“  Heroes are everywhere. I’ve seen that.”
“ That’s beyond heroes. We’re going to need a miracle. ”
“ For those who value survival, sentimentality is not an option. ”
“ I’m never truly out of my element. ”

The act of self acceptance is incredibly difficult. We are capable of loving others when we don’t love ourselves, but once you realize how amazing you are, with all your insecurities it makes life so much easier. You will be able to trust your judgement, and accept people into your heart with ease, but that doesn’t mean you won’t guard your heart. It just means you’ll finally know your worth and realize that you don’t have to apologize for it.
—  exhale, release and repeat // a.h. the road to self love and recovery 
Know yourself for who you are.
Never put yourself down.
Never compare yourself with anyone else.
Never be judgmental.
Learn to leave everything alone.
Do not come to a conclusion about anything.
There is no ultimate answer.
Do not search for reality.
Do not search for answers.
You will be searching for eternity.

Yoga!

So I just got back from Yoga, it was an hour and a half session. I’m sad to say I really didn’t enjoy it. I actually wanted to come home after half an hour but I decided to stick it out to the end. I’m not really sure why I didn’t enjoy it. I felt a bit insecure as I was the only ‘new’ beginner and everyone knew each other. However, I did remain mindful and used my DBT skills to notice my negative judgements, accept my feelings and continue to stay present.

I genuinely feel like I preferred Pilates to Yoga. It was a bit too intense for me and not as meditative and mindful as I wanted it to be. But at least I tried it once. Even though it wasn’t for me, I’m happy I was willing to go and take my therapists advice.
