oleeevia Because in the scheme of things, the way your body looks doesn't say anything about the goodness of your heart and the passion in your soul. We are more than our bodies. Working on fitness makes us feel good, but so what if some of us don't? What are you doing for humanity? How are you treating others? What are your passions? How are you loving yourself--in whatever way that is? Those who really matter are not going to care how your body looks, they want to see what's inside. If you cherish and love yourself by hitting the gym everyday and lifting weights that is so wonderful. If you cherish and love yourself by never going to the gym because that doesn't feel good, that's wonderful. I love when people say they are beautiful because to me they're not only and not always referring to the way their physical bodies look, it's so much more! What are you doing to spread love and kindness to all people? How are you including women of color, black women, indigenous women, overweight, disabled, and transgender women in your feminism? Your occupation, social status, physical appearance, sexual choices--don't have to be the deciding factor in your beauty. You decide what makes you beautiful!! #beauty #fyourbeautystandards 2mon

oleeevia I found a beautiful photo of a Buddha statue in Hong Kong. And a quote I love:

Hate is never conquered by hate, hate is conquered by love. This is an eternal law." ~Buddha
I'm so grateful to be taking a Class about Buddhism

Siddhartha Gautama stated in his second Noble Truth, The truth of the Origin of Suffering, that the ignorance of impermanence and of no-self is a primary cause of samsāra. Attachments and emotional afflictions continues the cycle of samsāra. And desire for what we don't have is the root of it all. Awareness, or right view, is a first step toward Nibbāna. So even small steps taken to lose the ego, the attachments, the confidence in a self and the desire could set us free a little more each day...

oleeevia "Beware of energy suckers--if you invest all of your energy into them they will leave you in a bad place.
I don't fear commitment, I fear wasting my time.

You deserve what you put out into the universe. Although karma doesn't work straight away, it will catch up to you eventually.

If you are loving and deserve love, don't put up with excuses.

What you allow will continue.

You can't force change, it is natural." Quotes from my favorite @chakabars

oleeevia Let your soul settle, and your mind. Learn to accept instead of expect and find fewer disappointments in life. Once you can find peace and joy with yourself, negativity and the actions of others can't affect or disturb you. "You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle." -Eckhart Tolle. 5mon

oleeevia Sri Aurobindo Ashram in New Delhi, India. A temple dedicated to meditation towards The Mother and Sri Aurobindo on the grounds of the ashram. An incredibly moving experience that was too short but introduced me to a few of the teachings of The Mother

Some of my favorite quotes of hers: "our life should be governed by the love for Truth and the thirst for Light." "we must watch over our thoughts. A bad thought is the most dangerous of thieves." And finally, "We find in others what is in us. If we always find mud around us, it proves there is mud somewhere within us."
