What we consume intelectually should be taken into consideration in the same way we think about the food we eat. This is a book I feel really passionate about and can genuinely say it's changed my life. Yes, the power of books! What have you read lately? What books light you up?!

My second beach must have is an oral supplement that improves the skin's ability to protect itself against oxidative and photo damage caused by UV exposure.
Heliocare contains a phytochemical and botanical extract called Polypodium Leucotomos, from a tropical fern found in Central and South America. This fern was originally an aquatic plant that later had to adapt to life on land and thus developed its own mechanism for protection against environmental free radicals. The powerful antioxidants in this supplement protect the skin all over body and will not get washed away by sweating, swimming, or any other activity. This makes Heliocare a great adjunct to your topical sunscreen.
I personally take this supplement anytime I have prolonged UV exposure...pool day, hiking, or on the beach. I also recommend it to any patient with photosensitive conditions such as photodermatitis, lupus, and melasma, history of skin cancers, on oral retinoids, or undergoing aggressive skin resurfacing procedures.
🏠 When you are building a house, you understand that there are certain supplies 🧰 and tools 🛠 necessary to make it happen. You understand that there are skills required to build a strong foundation, and knowledge necessary to make things run properly and be up to code and safe. -
✏️ When We are building our best selves there are tools that are just as important to establishing a secure foundation for discipline, self-worth, and purpose. When we are aware of our value, worth, and potential we allow our self confidence to be stronger than any limiting beliefs , distorted mindsets, and insecurities that may have the potential to hold us back from being our best selves. -
💕Affirmation is one of my favorite toys because it is the key to making sure that External factors are not the prime source of positivity in your life. Know that inner work, confidence, and appreciation of self begins with you and ends with you. -
💡 The more you speak light into your life, The easier it will be for your light to shine through.
💪🏾 Developing the confidence necessary to take it to the next level requires understanding of self, and he was pouring in to oneself. Expand your ability bikes in the finance take time to affirm yourself.
here’s my check in with honesty •
everything that we have consumed, participated in, people we’ve connected with, regardless of the age in which it happened, shapes the nature of who we are today and what we become tomorrow
I use the terms of “who” and “what” loosely because energy has no pronoun to directly define it. It just it
My energy of late has felt low. Racing against itself. Trying to build a better, more connected version of itself
In a way, I look at myself in the same way I look at water. No one cup of water is treated the same. Some people get water from the falloff of waterfalls, streams, and euphoric preservations. Some get water from rusty pipes and big city tanks. What can either enhance or degrade the water is our vibrational reaction to it
We can consume it as it is, allowing the waters frequency to merge with ours. Letting it influence the core of our nature. Or we can input our own ideals, our own intentions, and prayers into the water and allow that wealth of being and information permeate our bodies to transform them to a higher existence (on a molecular level)
This is all to say that starting today, things are changing. Mindset, ideology, lifestyle, ways of loving and living are becoming more refined and joyful. Know the power within you to change our life. Don’t just take things as is if it’s not where you want to be in life

When the great stupa at Sanchi was opened up in the middle of the last century, the relic chamber was found to contain two stone receptacles; the one to the north held the body relics of Maha Moggallana, while that on the south enclosed those of Sariputta. Thus they had lain while the centuries rolled past and the history of two thousand years and more played out the drama of impermanence in human life. The Roman Empire rose and fell, the glories of ancient Greece became a distant memory; new religions wrote their names, often with blood and fire, on the changing face of the earth, only to mingle at last with legends of Thebes and Babylon, and gradually the tides of commerce shifted the great centers of civilization from East to West, while generations that had never heard the Teaching of the Buddha arose and passed away. But all the time that the ashes of the saints lay undisturbed, forgotten in the land that gave them birth, their memory was held dear wherever the Buddha's message spread, and the record of their lives was passed down from one generation to another, first by word of mouth, then in the written pages of the Buddhist Tripitaka, the most voluminous and detailed scripture of any religion. next to the Enlightened One himself, it is these two disciples of his who stand highest in the veneration of Buddhists in the Theravada lands. Their names are as inseparable from the annals of Buddhism as that of the Buddha himself. If it has come about that in the course of time many legends have been woven into the tradition of their lives, this is but the natural outcome of the devotion that has always been felt for them. - Nyanaponika Thera #sariputra#mogallana#sariputta#mahamogallana#buddhistdisciples#mahathera#arhats#arhat#buddha#enlightenment#awakening#bodhi#bodhisattva#greatspirit#humanhistory#worldhistory#buddhisthistory#buddhanature#tathagata#wisdom#spiritualpower#compassion#disciple#awareness#jnana#dyana#meditation#buddhism#dharma#sangha
Here’s the photo I shared with @awarecauses ! 💙 Story below.
. "My name is Liz, and I have Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA). It's an inflammatory, autoimmune arthritis where the immune system mistakenly attacks joints and other connective tissue. It can cause permanent, irreversible joint damage and can be disabling. Other symptoms include extreme fatigue, joint swelling, fevers, and limited mobility. PsA patients have a significantly increased risk of serious cardiovascular problems and double the average risk of mortality from infectious disease. Treatment is available, but often involves extremely costly medications called biologics. In the US, biologics account for ~40% of pharmaceutical spending but only ~2% of Americans take them. People hear "arthritis" and think of osteoarthritis, mistakenly assuming that young people can't have arthritis. Autoimmune forms of arthritis don't discriminate, you can be diagnosed at any age. I was 29 at diagnosis, but have had symptoms since my mid-20s. As many as 30% of people with Psoriasis eventually develop PsA, yet almost no one seems to have heard of it! I hadn't either, until my rheumatologist diagnosed me. I wear a blue AWARE necklace for arthritis awareness, but especially PsA and other autoimmune/inflammatory types of arthritis. Because yes - young people can have arthritis too!"
Did you already have the chance to meet our team? Outgoing, energetic and enthusiastic is what we are, are you?
We know so! That's why we gather all villagers, artists & communities every year to celebrate! Now we're getting ready to make the 4th edition even more memorable. Stay tuned, we got some big news coming up!
In the last two world wars, all 83,005 Sikh soldiers killed and 109,045 wounded served in full bana. They wore their articles of faith, including the dastaars (turbans) and beards into battle.

Word of the year, "Grit."
Grit: firmness of mind or spirit : unyielding courage in the face of hardship or danger
Grit is also about perseverance. To persevere means to stick with it; to continue working hard even after experiencing difficulty or failure. .
I have been deep in the feels this past week into these workouts. They are kicking my ass and kicking my insides and bringing out tears I never knew I was hiding. .
I feel I fail more then I succeed. I work my ass off and have nothing to show for it. I have a past of holding myself back. Of giving up. Of not actually trying. Of staying in place. Not moving. Staying in shitty positions that dont move me or light my passions. .
I have been through many trial and tribulations over the years. This year more so taking the initiative to turn and tackle everything within myself. And it is a most difficult battle. But one I refuse to lose. I feel like the more I dig, the more I'm losing, the more shutdown i am becoming, the more depressed i am, the more I am trying to deflect, the harder I am trying to run and hide. .
It's a struggle when you're up against yourself, your own worst critic, your anxity, your overthinking, your depression. But those things dont define you. I'm looking them in the face and taking control day by day. Each day I wake up and break a sweat I'm shoving that middle finger so far up there.. I'm going to get my life. The life I am meant to live, to love. I want to be happy. I want to be healthy. And I want to share my story for those that suffer in silence. Whether is be sobriety, mental health, daily life struggles. I am your cheerleader! I am your ear. I am your shoulder to cry on.

diary of a soul 💎
there was a tale I was once told
about these unfathomable creatures
called, human beings, of all things
so very strange, because humane,
oh, they are not! they are granted
entry to this simply magical land
it's filled with air that breathes
life into them, yet they pollute
their very own breading ground
were they not told that this life is
temporary, at best?! just a climb up
to the very next stepping stone
I was so puzzled, l had to see
for myself, so I swooped down
and to my surprise, it was all true!
there was depression, amidst
lavish lifestyle, hope sprung
from the depths of despair
there were violence and crime,
and war, yet people danced
and sang in the midst of it all
what I did not expect was to
find, that despite all the anger,
and the angst, there was LOVE!
love of another, inspite their
own disregard for themselves,
brotherly love and sisterly too,
but above all, the love of a mother
towards her child, it’s as close to
divine light, as one can possibly find
I never expected to fall in love
with this place, but here I stand,
my soul bare and raw to the touch
so I have made it my mission to
help all humankind and I am not
alone in my quest, oh no, not at all!
there are many others who have
come forth, and if you are reading
these words, YOU have been called!
for you are divine souls much
like us all, who have chosen to
come to earth at this very point
for Gaia, your mother, needs
nurture and love, she breathes
in and out, much like you do,
for she is alive, she has a
consciousness of her own, and
much like yours, her vibration
is rising back to what it once
was, and she needs you now
more than she has ever before
if you’ve read this far, and are
barely holding tears inside, I hope
you’ll step up and follow your heart
for it knows the path you need
to take, it’s leading you to higher
ground, so trust and take flight” sth
