~Μιλώντας για αναζητήσεις που θέλουν τον χρόνο τους~ Σ' έψαξα σ' όλα τα πελάγη που γλυκοφιλούν τη Μεσόγειο και στα λουλούδια που ανθίζουν με το πρώτο φιλί της άνοιξης. Σ' αναζήτησα σε κάθε σταγόνα της βροχής και σε κάθε ανάσα της βραδινής αύρας. Δε σε βρήκα πουθενά. Αντάμωσα μόνο βιαστικούς ταξιδιώτες. Κουβαλούσαν ό λ ο ι ξεφτισμένα χρώματα και αρώματα-απομιμήσεις. Προσπάθησα να φτιάξω μαζί τους λίγες στιγμές, ήθελα κι εγώ να γράψω μια ιστορία, να τη φυλάξω στα κιτάπια της ψυχής μου, να 'χει κάτι να διαβάζει η νοσταλγία με τα ρυτιδιασμένα της μάτια. Πάντοτε ξέμενα από χαρτί και μελάνι... Τα έχανα από δικιά μου αμέλεια; Μου τα έκλεβαν; Ποτέ δεν κατάλαβα... Έβλεπα τη βροχή να γλιστράει μέσα από τα δάχτυλά μου και τη βραδινή αύρα να δραπετεύει από το παραθύρι που έμενε επίτηδες ανοιχτό. Κι εγώ είχα για παρέα ένα "γιατί". Κάποτε με συντρόφευε κι ένα "ίσως". Ίσως όλα αυτά που δε γίνονται να καρτερούν εσένα. Ίσως το χαρτί και το μελάνι να εμπιστεύονται μόνον εσένα για να γράψεις εκείνην την ιστορία που τόσο πολύ ποθεί η ψυχή μου. Ίσως να μη χρειαστεί να σε ψάξω. Ίσως με βρεις εσύ... Κι εγώ θα σε καταλάβω αμέσως από το βαθύ μπλε των ματιών σου και το απαλό άρωμα ενός τριαντάφυλλου...

We've all heard the phrase, "There's no such thing as a stupid question." I'm not here to dispel the phrase either. What I do want you to do is consider asking yourself a few questions first, BEFORE your raise that query. In this information age we demand immediate answers. We 'Google it' before we know what we'll do with the information. Before you click search, before you interject with your question, ask yourself: "what do I notice?" Start to make some of your own connections. Think critically about the relationships you can make between what you already know and the things you notice. This quick analysis will lead you to better, more useful questions that will find the meaning you are searching for. #stupidquestion #googleit #criticalthinking #searchformeaning #makingconnections #friday
Search for meaning. Sinnsuche.
"Today, I will put my attention to #inter -beingness. Today, I will put my attention on the #interrelatedness , #interarising , and #interdependence of all that exists. Today, I will realize that we are all a #web of #relationships , and that the whole #universe conspires to create every event in our lives through these inter-actions. Through the web of relationships I will see my inter-beingness. Today, I will pay attention to relationship." #onemind #superorganism #searchformeaning #ecstaticexperience #thirdmind #orderoutofchaos

WHO ARE YOU? A teacher, a vegan, a Democrat, a parent? Once you find the “answer” ask a much more important question. Who is it that is aware of my previous answer? You are now one step closer to the real truth.
I woke up yesterday to learn about the death by suicide of one of my favorite TV presenters Anthony Bourdain,and I felt compelled to recommend this book to all and sundry.A powerful classic,If there is one book you will ever read in your life.READ THIS! I first stumbled on this book in a psychiatric ward of a maximum security prison.Millions have secret battles they are fast losing ,including those that the world envy.A life without anchor is like a roaming kite,soon or late,chickens will come home to roost.#bookish #booknerd #bookworm #booklove #bookstagram #bookshelf #bookshop #classics #amreading #bookchoice #manssearchformeaning #goodreads #goodread #searchformeaning #dontlosehope #readthis #reader #bookish #greatbook #instareads #bookcollection

Let’s all try Thank Bombing! Here’s why: The benefits of throwing around Thank You’s are enormous. And we have so many opportunities every day. How many people can you think of you can thank that you may have overlooked in the past? Who can you think of that you can thank again with more passion? Who will you always remember to thank in the future? Let’s start a Thank Bombing trend. We’ll all just start thanking the hell out of everybody! Who ever does a good deed, helps us in anyway, who we see helping someone else, whatever! It’ll be an all out party! Are you with me?? . . #thankyou #gratitude #oxytocin #seretonin #feelgood #fridaymotivation #companyculture #awareness #lifecoaching #searchformeaning #neuroscience #psychology #transforminglives #unity #togetherisbetter #happiness #attitudeofgratitude #fridaymood #thankbombing
This is what you said you wanted. Time to create. To write. To get healthy. To live a little. So why are you still sitting there on the couch? Why aren’t you getting up and creating? Why are you still reaching for that glass of wine at the end of the day if you don’t have the stress of work to excuse yourself? Is it possible that all you want to do is nothing? Sitting, sleeping, eating, drinking, watching TV… they are all things. I mean really nothing. Do you want to be swallowed up in that still, dark place in the back of your subconscious somewhere, where thinking isn’t mandatory? Where decisions aren’t required. Where life floats by on a fantastical tide; an ever-flowing river of fragmented ideas and broken dreams? Needing nothing from you. Not even your attention to exist. Or to that place before the subconscious, where eternity was held inside a seed, before the great spark, before the light; in the black veil of space? It’s not dark there. It’s not cold there. It’s not even scary there. The dark can’t exist in the nothingness. Fear can’t live in the void. So you could stay there in that place before expectation, before the possibility of life, before the sweet eruption of tears, for no time and for all time – it wouldn’t matter because there is only nothing in the nothingness. Is this what you said you wanted? #writinginprogress #writing #nothing #nothingness #reflection #subconscious #thevoid #purpose #passion #creativity #searchformeaning #searchforhappiness #searchforanything #eternity #life #love #spirit #transcendence
Dang two books on the shelf in one week. Very insightful book on what the human body and even more importantly the human mind is capable of, especially when it knows that it has a true purpose to fulfill.
Slightly stable does it again... not the healthiest of meals but these lox bagels are hard to get away from. Combine them with a cup of coffee and a good book and you are guaranteed a good day 🍽#bagels #lox #capuccino #searchformeaning #enjoy #findingstability #cheatday #balanceyourmeals @thefreehold

Once in Brazil, the beautiful and inspirational @avariots read Egyptian Tarot for me. We were talking about the meaning of life when suddenly a bee sat down on my arm and stung me. The next card my friend laid was #purification . These days I have my own bee hives. Was it the cards that inspired me to take the plunge? What did the purifying and healing venom of the sting tell me?

"Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way." ~ Viktor Frankl: Man's Search For Meaning. . . . . #vancity #vancouver #sunsetbeach #englishbay #searchformeaning #viktorfrankl #quote #quotestoliveby
“The meaning of your life is to help others find the meaning of theirs” - by the author. We have it so easy to live by our choices but some still find it difficult to find meaning and purpose to life. It’s all within us to search for it. 💙🖤🧡💚 #inspirationalbooks #mustreadbooks #readingtime 📖 #searchformeaning #victorfrankl
Getting the right books to the right people at the right time via The Human Kindness Library. . Ben’s Book Of Choice: “Mans Search For Meaning” by Viktor Frankl. Published: 1946 . Viktor was an Austrian psychologist as well as a Holocaust survivor. In this book he documented his experiences in the Auschwitz concentration camp and describes his psychotherapeutic method called Logotherapy which involved identifying a life purpose to envision and feel positively about. . The author quoted Friedrich Nietzsche’s famous saying a number of time throughout his book: . “He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.” . This quote and the main point I took away from Viktor’s shared experiences was that if we have a strong enough purpose to live for, we human can bare and live through the worst of conditions. . This book was dropped off at my ex-bosses house who taught me a lot in my early career (age 18). . He recently had a second stroke but is making a good recovery and I hope this book will give him more internal strength to pull him through such a circumstance. . #purpose #giveback #humankindnesslibrary #holocaust #concentrationcamps #auschwitz #poland #nietzsche #viktorfrankl #manssearchformeaning #searchformeaning #strokesurvivor #humankindness #philanthropy #charity #kindness #givingback #scotland #bookclub #philosophy #selfhelp
A young girl’s search for meaning from a couple of days ago. . I find myself sitting on the edge of a simple Ikea chair in the middle of Budapest. The chair is firm, much like the one I have at home. Actually, I believe it’s the same model. And yet, somehow, it feels different. . The lightning is weird. It may be because even though it’s only 5pm, the window blinds are closed - he’s sleeping. I have to rely on the artificial lightning which leaves a lot to be desired for. I skim through pages of an intriguing nonfiction book about, well, about lost books. . We’ve had a chill day - so necessary after days filled with walking and sightseeing. We chose to watch our fave Netflix series for the enth time instead of going out. For which my feet were the most grateful. Turns out you can’t really walk 20 kilometers daily and expect your feet to be in the very same condition they were before. Who knew! . I am slowly realizing that I have never really expected myself to reach this place - and I don’t even mean Budapest, even though this would make sense as well. The thing is I have never actually believed I could have my own life, people around me, places to visit, money to spend, plans to complete and a somewhat reluctant (but definitely present!) desire to live. . Depression was a big black hole that consumed everything I have tried to do in the past couple of years. It’s slowly losing its strength. I watch it shrinking with pure astonishment. Is it really surpassable? I find it bizarre - is there really something left in me to be discovered? It appears so. The toxic surroundings have been draining my energy for so many years and yet here I am, in Budapest and in a very new, very different state of mind. . I’m mostly quiet here. I was worried this may bother my friend but no, we’ve known each other for far too long for such things to stand between us. And when I laugh, I laugh really loudly. And then I get quiet - surprised with the volume of my voice which I’ve been continuously lowering for half my life. . But I’m good now. I’m really good. . #searchformeaning #depressionrecovery #depression #depresja #budapest #hellohungary #mybeigelife #tumblraesthetic #writing
I believe the sole purpose for why we are here is for “us”— as a collective energy system; the universe— to understand itself. I believe a portion of the universe that has always existed, resides in us. This karmic energy chooses a life it knows will help expand its consciousness; teach it something it failed to understand before. It’s a paradox. Although we are one and the same, we experience separation in order to understand something. Our progress towards achieving total clarity is disrupted because we are not able to completely separate ourselves from our environment as we think its/their reaction to us is a reflection of us. To take it even deeper, we are not able to successfully separate our mind, body and soul. It makes sense why we have such great trouble with this separation though; many of us go through life suffering from enmeshment trauma, where we absorb the thoughts, feelings and actions of others as our own or as a reflection of our ‘self’. We live the first 9 months of our life in our mother’s womb where we didn’t know we were separate from her; we experience EVERYTHING she did, thought and felt. After we’re expelled from the womb is when we learn that our experience is separate. Over the course of our life we develop a rigor samsa— an ever-evolving and self-realizing psychological exoskeleton that helps preserve our truest self — while we simultaneously exist, evolve and exude. . . .

So in the past couple of days I had the pleasure of writing my first ever guest piece for my dear friend @44sunrise blog (who’s the admin) and much needed space called the Black Muslim Forum. This piece was not difficult to write in the traditional sense of trying to think of ideas- they were already there. Many more are also here within. It was simply a matter of using available tools of language to make sense of certain experiences that have been home to the physical memory. I would like to thank the Black Muslim Forum family for providing me with the space to put my first piece of writing out into the open. It was an honour and I’m so glad that it happened on this blessed month of Ramadan and on this crucial platform, which I hope will bring together and shed light on the layered, complex and much needed lived experiences of black Muslims around the world. @44sunrise You’re amazing 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾and I’m truly inspired by your hardwork and resilience in crafting and creating this platform 💛💛💛💛 ( p.s. @44sunrise Gurl I can literally hear you laughing at me being so dramatic 😭😭😭) * * * The link for the piece is available in my bio. Much love💕💕 #writing #voices #opinions #expression #freeyourself #freeyourmind #joyofexpression #beingreal #searchformeaning #audrelorde #yoursilencewillnotprotectyou

We start this week by bringing consciousness and clarity to what has meaning in our lives. Not generally speaking .. quite specifically. I beseech you to delve into the sweet personal space of your heart and mind and take a moment, right now, to jot down a sentence or two in response to the question, “What brings meaning to my life and world?” (Writing brings a clarity that thinking cannot .. once you have pen in hand, your answer will pour forth with far more ease than you would expect.) With these things clarified you will begin your week with a nourishing clarity you did not have before .. you’ll feel more open, spacious, and at ease with being here at such a crazy time in human evolution, and look forward to your week’s explorations and experiences. It actually feels really good 🙌🏽 #meaning #searchformeaning #whatsimportant #value #contemplation #warmth #senses #love #me #open #spacious #ease #atease #easier #peace #peaceofmind #help #helpful #better #color #sky #betterlife #breath #breathe #god #katerx 🌼 Photo by: tim foster: unsplash.com

Sometimes just getting up to face another day is a major accomplishment, I know, I've been there. So I applaud you for having the courage to get up and face another day when all you want to do is close your eyes. Take it one day at a time and one day you will wake up and realize that just waking up and shining your light to the world is the greatest gift you can give to yourself and to others. You will see that love is a living, breathing, Being but only if you animate it. Go within and find what is uniquely you and give that to the world because that is exactly what we all need and you will have found your purpose. Much love to you, you are loved, you are special. Be blessed, be a blessing 💖 #hope #holdon #depressionhelp #depressionhelper #suicideprevention #lightlove #peace #peaceofmind #searchformeaning #youmatter #weallmatter #youareloved #beblessedbeablessing #beablessing #beblessed #reikiangel1
I am a pilgrim and a stranger Traveling through this wearisome land I've got a home in that yonder city, good Lord And it's not, not made by hand I've got a mother, sister and a brother Who have gone this way before I am determined to go and see them, good Lord For they're on that other shore I'm goin' down to the river of Jordan Just to bathe my wearisome soul If I can just touch the hem of his garment, good Lord Then I know he'd take me home I am a pilgrim and a stranger Traveling through this wearisome land I've got a home in that yonder city, good Lord And it's not, not made by hand Songwriters: Merle Travis. #merletravis #songs #songwriters #albumcover #albumcoverart #albumcovers #albumcoverdesign #albumcoverdesigns #billypilgrimsprogress #billypilgrimspodcast #meaning #purpose #searchformeaning #search #selfactualuzation #congruence #service #blog #bloggers #bloggersofinstagram #writer #writersofinstagram #podcast
Everyone deserves to feel as though his life is important. The more we direct our attention to serving others, the more important our lives become. We need to be careful not to fall into the trap of letting our lives turn into, or remain, an endless pursuit of the next goal, the next material possession...
