Sorrow arises… Inside there is nothing I can do, the sorrow comes of its own accord, it is the reaction that arises to suffering, the suffering of others... the suffering of my self... I breath into this sorrow, and for a moment it quiets only to return, I fill my mind with thoughts and it sits patiently waiting for me, I look toward distraction and it sits beside me distracted as well... and so I greet it like an old friend, I ask it to tell me what it knows, and it shows me a gift, brought for me, a gift of great love, of compassion, and around my heart it draped this shawl to comfort all that I am... namaste

From victim to survivor -to overcomer -to more than a conqueror. That’s who we are in Christ Jesus! Rom 8:37 -No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. #overcome#morethanconquerors#truth#survivor
Taas matolla 💃Perfect place to work😍My own shala🙏Thankful af 😄❤ "When the vasanas (mental habits of sensory enjoyment) pull us towards them, the mind will resist if it knows that they are not the source of real joy and that they will only bring us sorrow. But this knowledge has to be firmly planted in the mind and intellect. Don't let your lives go to waste by being slaves to your minds. Don't barter away a priceless jewel for a piece of candy. Our minds will quiet down if we stop giving as much importance to sensory pleasures as we do now.
Don't worry if you don't have the strength to do so right away. Sit in solitude for a little while every day, and reflect on this, assuming the attitude of a witness. Make it a regular habit. You will certainly get the strength you need. Then you will be able to stand up to any challenge without faltering. Children, don't shed tears thinking that you are undeserving. That will only rob you of your strength.
Son, don't regret that you couldn't become a brahmachari, or that you can't be with Amma all the time. You children are all like the leaves on a plant. Some leaves are close to the flower, and others are far away from it, but all the leaves belong to the same plant. Likewise all are Amma's children, don't doubt that one bit. Don't feel sorry that you can't enjoy Amma's physical presence by not being with Her. You can also reach the ultimate goal one day."

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. I feel like too often we are always looking outward & comparing ourselves to others(I’m guilty of this too) when really we need to be taking a look within. Don’t seek validation from others. Trust & believe in yourself because at the end of the day your happiness is what matters most. And when you can truly be happy with who & where you are in your life, you can then set yourself up for a path of success 📷: @maggiezulovic#trust#selflove#happy#success#path#motvation#trainer#ad#torysport
