ABHAYA MUDRA

Fear is limiting. A liability you could do without. Live fully and without fear. Laugh loudly. Love deeply and passionately. If it falls apart, get up, dust yourself, and start again. Revel in your individuality. The more you love being you, the more depth your relationships and life will have.

'What’s the difference?' I asked him. 'Between the love of your life, and your soulmate?'
‘One is a choice, and one is not.’

Mirror

rudyfrancisco:

There was a time in my life

when I couldn’t tell the difference

between a mirror and a window.

I could stand in front of either

and see everything,

but myself.

Truth is Beauty by Marco Cochrane

One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane. Constructed of welded steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh skin, the massive sculpture had interactive lighting effects that made it constantly change.

If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.
The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision.
There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.

—Deepak Chopra

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنْسَانَ وَنَعْلَمُ مَا تُوَسْوِسُ بِهِ نَفْسُهُ ۖ وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيدِ
“And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein.”

—Qur’an, Surah Qaf (50:16)

You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.

Eat food from farmers markets.
Drink good tea each morning.
Read books that make you feel.
Paint, even if you’re awful.
Write, even when you have nothing to say.
Sit in the fresh air outside.
Go on hikes.
Swim in lakes and wade in streams.
Sleep as long as you need.
Work hard at what you love.
Work hard at what you hate.

Love unconditionally and wholeheartedly.
