Nowadays my Sadhana barely resembles what would be thought of as a ‘yoga’ practice - it’s certainly atypical. Today I headed out into the wilds, to sit in silence and make some honest marks onto paper. The result is, well, I don’t know...I wasn’t really thinking about the result. The process of drawing is very therapeutic for me, and like meditation, there is an interesting play between focused attention and a relaxed settling of the mind. It brings about a sense of intimacy with the moment, and within that space I often start to notice things. Change is always the first observation - everything is changing with each moment, including me the observer. I try to find some solidity but it seems we’re all just doing this big dance - the mountains, the trees, the creek, and me. Yet this play between movement and stillness is interesting - if I look deeply, every thing is moving as One big shift, yet when I stop looking and become silent, everything is still and nothing is moving. Have you ever experienced this - that when you drop your thinking mind completely, then sometimes within that space, an all encompassing flash of complete and utter stillness. I think about Interconnectedness sometimes, albeit intellectually. I ask myself “where does a tree start and where does it end”...I’ve sat with this contemplation for sometime...15 years later and the only answer I’ve found is, “wherever my mind chooses”. Yoga is simply silencing and observing, to lead us to a place of knowing. So for me today, a few marks on some paper were a welcomed change. . . . #buddha #dharma #sangha #meditation #mindfulness #emptiness #shunyata #interconnectedness #yoga #yogaeverywhere #drawing #sketch #zen #nature #mountains #trees #philosophy #sadhana #art #drawing
Внезапный приступ идиотизма - вот двигатель прoгресса практически всех людей. Только благодаря ему люди выходят из дома посреди ночи с текилой и идут пить ее из горла к ближайшему памятнику и пoэтому знакомятся с теми людьми, которые им потом становятся ближе всех. С теми, кого они могут назвать настоящими друзьями. Только благодаря приступу идиoтизма люди садятся не на те поезда, уезжают в незнакомые города и там встречаются со своими вторыми половинами, которые дарят им самые яркие ощущения в жизни. Только благодаря ему люди заходят в ближайший офис и говорят: "Знаете, а я хочу у вас работать", а потом стрoят головокружительные карьеры или даже становятся знаменитыми. Только благодаря приступу идиотизма люди покупают на последние деньги билет, все бросают и уезжают вперед к новой жизни и новым впечатлениям. Только благодаря ему люди кардинально меняют прическу, делают пирсинг и тату, а потом нисколько oб этом не жалеют. Маргарита Булгакова #emptiness #_emptiness_1
Accolgo questi primi giorni di autunno dentro la mia grotta, apprezzando il grande dono dell’introspezione.. La Luna Nera dentro di me mi suggerisce di tagliare i rami che mi tengono ancorata a ciò che non mi appartiene più. Svuotando il mio ventre, riesco ad accogliere ciò che di nuovo sta per arrivare. Nel vuoto si genera la vita. #newmoon #blackmoon #emptiness #autumn 🍁 #fullmoon #ancientwisdom #calderon
Create goals so massive, Failure is a must - until perfection emerges. Blank the page and start from Nothing - over and over again untill the story writes itself with immaculate art. Empty the mind, the soul, the being - of all the junk this mediated world throws up, and fill it again with fresh fruits. -sms @qualped . . . #failure #success #emptiness #filled #nothing

Not #emptiness fills the #world ➡We just forgot how to #dream . Not #evil #controls #people ➡ We are indifferent to good. No #envy corrodes hearts ➡ We are #weak to recognize someone else's #victory .

One might ask: What is the purpose of retreat? The purpose is to move away from all distractions and into our conscious aware space. Not to know all the answers but to ask ourselves the deepest questions about our being. Who am I? What drives my existence? What matters most to me? What brings me peace in the times of emptiness? The purpose is to connect with our being and find our own way. Too feel where your roots are connected and what gives you rise. We live in a society driven by outer influences. Constantly directing our attention away from the inner cosmic flow and towards the outer ego driven fancies. The practice for me is finding my flow living in the in between. Consciously interacting with the world around me while connecting and coming from a place deep within that is grounded in genuine, authentic, and sincere expression. Some would say that being alone in nature gives them the same insight. But, I would counter that and say that when you are in the presence of others it offers you a deeper reflection into yourself that you may not see otherwise. So much love and gratitude to @adyashanti.ogs for such a deepening and enlivening experience!. 👁✨👁. . . #silentretreat #adyashanti #enlightenment #laketahoe #grandlibakken #faceyourfears #truth #spirit #being #love #emptiness #becoming #clarity #reflection #meditation #oneness

And then, she let me go.. 🌹
...And down below howls, so far below, a fucking calling; hear the screaming? with wounds stretching all the world, crawling deeper through the hole. Writhing in fear, this place, brings us suffering and I've become one last man, to heal the wounded scars... #pestilenceshallcome #adventsorrowband #australia #metal #metalheads #ilovemusic #metalmusic #depressiveblackmetal #depressivesuicidalblackmetal #depression #emptiness #loneliness
