Or you just think of it as fate and call it a day.

I started meditating the other day!
I don’t know why these feel feel weird to type or even to say. It’s funny this was never something I could wrap my mind around.
Being still, listening to my breath, Releasing all my thoughts. Honestly I thought it didn’t make sense. People who meditated were quacks (sorry, my closed minded nature) and it wasn’t really such a thing. For me, I think it was a control thing. I have to be in control of every aspect of my life again. I wrote this but it’s only now that I believe it .
Do you know that control is a fear-based emotion? I mean it makes total sense. When you’re afraid need to change that situation and make it more of what your bus scared of, correct?
so sitting and allowing myself to surrender and be still is not something I could handle. Still a work in process. I feel like it may actually allow me to feel more in control by releasing some. Does that make sense?
It’s the most wonderful time of the year to celebrate God’s Greatest Gift of Love to the world! The Advent season is an amazing opportunity to prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Let’s take the days leading up to Christmas Day to reflect on some of the beautiful names of Jesus and read the Gospel of Luke together. It’s not too late to jump in!
🌟December 7: Jesus, The Door
Reading: Luke 7
Good morning from Philadelphia. Give me all your good news I love to hear it. The words of the day are COMPETITION & COLLABORATION. Just like Gregg Braden says: Science is only about 100 years old and we have falsely based our whole way of living life on Darwin’s theories of evolution which are based on competition. We must collaborate. There is enough money and opportunity out there for all of us. HAVE a great day ♥️ @gregg.braden@drjoedispenza@brucelipton#collaborate#meditate#win

I WAKE UP SOBER, NEVER HUNGOVER.
And grateful for it. The one thing that I am MOST grateful for because it has given me the gift to live life on life's terms.
For those of us in recovery, this time of year can be either really hard, or really easy.
For those that haven't taken that leap yet, let me tell you: it's going to be okay.
Life isn't always rainbows and butterflies, and my solution used to be to numb myself by getting wasted. It meant that I didn't have to "deal". Or....it meant that I felt like I belonged in the room. Or....it meant that I could smile and laugh more. Or....it meant that I could be more chilled. Or...it meant that I could be more social.
Sound familiar? Yeah.
But what it also meant was waking up feeling like hell on earth. It meant trying to remember if I offended anyone. It meant trying to remember if i embarrassed myself and/or my husband. It meant trying to remember how I got that bruise. It meant trying to remember how I hurt my knee. It meant thinking about where my next drink was going to come from.
Also sound familiar? Yeah.
I'm here to tell you it gets better. Recovery is an amazing place to be, because now? Fucking freedom!
So although I am of course grateful for my career, my friends, my family, my accomplishments, my tears, my joy, my peace, my health.....the list goes on.
None of that would be around to be grateful for if I wasn't sober.

7 December 2019
When I saw that you were the one, I made a promise to myself that I would fold you a flower every time we would see each other.
It was my way of processing things, how I would let my mind go blank as I went over the folds. Each origami I've given you was the result of my meditation, each fold was my mind reassuring me about you.
It's easy to get pulled back into old habits, old ways of thinking and old behaviors. .
I found myself in an uncomfortable place - as my professional life got busier, a sick pet at home, living though our home renovation, preparing for the holidays - all of a sudden my mind got noisier, my sleep felt disrupted, my body tightened up, and negative chatter creeped into my mind....and I thought, what happened? Why am I feeling this way?
The question was really, what didn't happen? What changed in my behaviors and routines?
My daily Meditation and Stretching routines did not happen - for almost 2 weeks. .
So this morning after working a couple hours, I sat down with a timer, my favorite meditation YouTube channel music and meditated. .
"Radical Self Acceptance" came into my mind. .
Some days it's easy to be hard on ourselves. We create narratives in our minds based on old behaviors and thought patterns. Especially when life gets hard, busy, or stressful. .
In case you need to hear this today or any day, you are doing a great job, you are worthy of love, you are unapologetically you. 💜
Quem é dramático já espera o pior, e essa certeza do pior faz acontecê-lo em sua vida. Vacine-se contra esse mal. Use o bom humor, aprenda a rir da vida. Discipline as suas observações. Cheque várias vezes antes e assumir uma opinião. Conte suas histórias com um certo rigor aos fatos, cuidando sempre para que você não se coloque em posição do “pobre de mim”.
Can you find 5,10 or even 30 mins this wknd to just ‘be’ - with the breathe, with the moment, with your bath or cuppa?
Trust me, if you can take that time to bring your full attention to the experience at hand. To notice when the minders wonders and to come back to how you are feeling, in your body - right now; then it’s gna have an impact on the rest of your day - making you less reactive and more responsive.

I have my life to thank for OSHO and he's Meditations. He was my first SPRITUAL teacher And one of the most important characters in my life and healing journey🙏🏻
After my "awakening" at the age of 15, I was open for spirituality but still had no idea how to rebuild myself or how to heal the pain that was suffocating me from the inside out.
I found an old book in my childhood home "Roots and wings" by OSHO. this book changed my life. Like I said I had no idea how to heal. But the transformational and rebellious thoughts of OSHO and his Active meditations became my first way to channel and opportunity to release and express all the pain stored in my heart.
Osho was an Indian mystic and transformational thought leader that died 1990. He changed many lifes in his lifetime and still are long after his death.
I would lock myself in my room and practise his guided active meditations that where designed for the modern man to release their "madness" to be able to find stillness🤯🤣...🦋💙 I would scream, shake, shout, breath, dance and find stillness after all the crazyness that I recognised I needed to get out🔥
I started to meditate long before the traditional yoga practise entered my life.
I have my dad to thank for this period also because he used to be a sanyasin of OSHO when he was alive. My dad was the only person I felt I could talk to about this things when I was in my teenage years because he has always been a seaking soul too just like me. he was one of my best friends growing up with a hugh heart and wanting to help others. Love you dad❤
I was back and forth with anxiety, depression, addiction, insomnia and at the same time the voice in my heart never gave up on me no matter how far down I spiraled it just keep whispering words of wisdom. .
"..You are enough, you are enough, you are enough. Trust, Everything is going to be okay❤"
This. We all need to learn to let go of what went before, and stop worrying about what is yet to come. Yes there are obviously exceptions. But by letting go of stresses we can't control, there is more headspace for us to enjoy the present moment. What holds you back? Do you hold onto the past, or worry about the future? Let's talk <3

🐍🌷 When meditation happens inside, you feel completely free. This freedom is an inner feeling, it cannot be felt by others.
Sometimes your behavior may create difficulties for others, because they cannot conceive of what has happened in you. In a way you will be a trouble to them, an inconvenience, because you cannot be predicted.
Now nothing will be known about you.
What will you do next? What will you say? No one can know. Everyone around you feels a certain inconvenience. They can never be at ease with you because now you are likely to do anything; you are not dead.
They cannot feel your freedom because they have not known anything like it. They have not even looked for it, they have not sought it.
They are so much in bondage that they cannot even conceive of what freedom is. They have been in cages, they have not known the open sky, so even if you talk to them about the open sky it cannot be communicated to them.
But they can feel your love, because they have been asking for love.
Even in their cages, in their bondage, they have been searching for love. They have created the whole bondage – bondage with persons, with things – only because of their search for love.

Feeling so much gratitude and ”the night before Christmas” excitement for tomorrow’s event. 108 chants of AUM to close our decade with gratitude and love for self and our sacred journeys.
Thank you for aligning with the vision @my_yoga_space. So much gratitude from my heart to yours.
To the community who are coming tomorrow. Thank you so very much for feeling the call to come, connect and cultivate gratitude, love and intention together. Speaking to Ruthie from @my_yoga_space we were contemplating with the intensity of the fire impact in the local area how would the event best suit. My heart felt response was “sometimes when there is so much in the external that is out of control such as fires, it’s comforting to be able to travel within and lead the forces of our heart to an uplifting intention “. I can already feel the magic that tomorrow is going to bring. It will be a power that is indescribable. If you haven’t yet booked please come along and absorb the brilliance that will be the chant of 108 AUMS. #aum#chant#thirlmere#love#meditate#calm#balance#inspired#tanyamoragacoton#wellbeing#stillness#presence#malabeads#kirtan#108#community#connection .
Of a woman are we conceived, ⠀
Of a woman are we born, ⠀
To a woman are we betrothed and married, ⠀
It is a woman who keeps the race going, ⠀
Another companion is sought when the life-partner dies, ⠀
Through a woman are established social ties.⠀
Why should we consider woman cursed and condemned,⠀
When from woman are born leaders and rulers.⠀
From woman alone is born a woman,⠀
Without woman there can be no human birth.⠀
Without woman, O Nanak, only the True One exists.⠀
Be it man or be it woman,⠀
Only those who sing His glory⠀
Are blessed and radiant with His Beauty,⠀
In His Presence and with His grace⠀
They appear with a radiant face.⠀
-Raag Aasaa Mehal 1 ⠀

If you are interested in the thought of Ramana Maharshi you can follow me on my Facebook
profile: Alessandro Longi. Since there is “I”, there are "you" and "he" too. 🙏If through the search for truth of "I", "I" ceases, then even “you” and “he” will cease.
And they will shine like the One. This is the natural state of one's being. 🙏
If you ask yourself "Who am I?" inside your mind, reaching your heart, the self collapses.
At the same time the real "I" appears (as "I" "I"), and although it manifests itself as "I", it is not the ego, it's your true being. 🙏Silence is unparalleled eloquence, the state of grace rising from within. 🙏The primordial substance whose essence is the silence, that I am. 🙏Your duty is to be: and not to be this or that. 🙏

⚖️Balance in yoga is balance in life. How we perform each asana is a reflection of our unique selves, the work we are putting in, and the intentions that are going out. It’s all a balancing act – life, relationships, goals, achievements, and yoga.
Spiritual awakening is a funny thing because the path to finding out who you are... is about finding out who and what you are not.
Spiritual awakening is realizing you are more than your physical body... more than the ego construct which identifies and interprets reality through the 5 senses.
It’s like trying to put a label on limitless potential or infinite intelligence. Sure, some words get the idea across but still don’t do it justice. You find out more about yourself by finding out what you are NOT.
You are not your job, not your thoughts, not what your exes say, not what your parents say, not your temporary circumstance nor any label that can be attached. I could say you are an eternal spiritual being or something but those are just words that feel good to say and think about.
The only REAL way to know... is to go within and start the search.
Like the book the Alchemist... you may find that at the end of the journey the answer was right there the whole time. You are limitless and you are infinite.
Don’t take my word for it though... go within and start to find out how much more potential you have without labels and without attachments. It’s a paradox because the more you take away from “you”... the more you become☺️
If this isn’t the vibe of the month, you may be doing something wrong 😂
Stay cozy and give yourself an excuse to be happy. That’s what the season is all about isn’t it 😊🎄
All Good Things Are Wild and Free.
