Eu tenho gritado até que minhas veias colapsassem
Eu esperei o decorrer do meu tempo
Agora tudo que faço é viver com esse destino
Desejei isso, reclamei daquilo
Deixei para trás esse pequeno fato
Você não pode matar o que não criou #Duality#Slipknot
Yesterday, at my photo walk, in San Francisco, photographer Robert Petersen was in attendance. He pointed out how the light bouncing off of the skyscrapers made an excellent fill light for portraits. Not 10 minutes later, a particularly bright spot bounced off of a building and made it possible to have a person have 2 different shadows. We used the situation to demonstrate how the same scene could be seen different ways by using different lenses and/or with different exposures. When I asked Robert why someone as good as he was wanted to take my class, he said, "We can always learn something new." We all learned something new because he was there. Thank you, Robert and everyone else who came to play. #shadow#shadows#photography#phototips#photographyislifee#photographylovers#urbanphotography#streetphotography#duality#light#photooftheday#sanfrancisco
≈ Flujo • Dualidad ≈
Empezamos a fluir verdaderamente cuando conectamos con el ser interior y buscamos un balance entre ambas realidades.
≈ Flow • Duality ≈
We begin to flow truly when we connect with our inner self and search for a balance between both realities.

#Duality can be uncomfortable. It can be easily used to make enemies of us all, but I promise you, every last bit of you is deserving of love. Anyone who claims you aren’t, or spends their time thinking or telling others of your darker parts has a lot to learn about loving themselves. And loving in general. #projectionandjealousyandshameandfear
New thoughts, new behaviours, new choices, new opportunities, new people, new achievements, new life, new me :) this year has been a crazy one, actually this life has been a crazy one, a wild drive of bush fires, romance, heart break, drama, blood, tears, fear, smiles, break downs. It's been tough and I'd be lying if I said I had never given up, I reached the point of no return, empty roads, lonely nights, living in a rock bottom pit, from homelessness to home, from fear to courage, from blood to scars, from fights to love, from destruction to healing, from hospital beds to wards to smiling for the first time again. The fight never ends, you just get stronger, the demons don't leave they become your teachers, things don't change, you change. I am grateful for everything and everyone in my life, it's been a dark twisted yet magical time and I've only gotten stronger, wiser, and free. Finally reaching a point where it seems like beauty, understanding, passion, happiness and love are flowering in me and even if they don't stay that's okay because Whatever the universe brings, it would never give anything it knew We wouldn't be able to handle, and the universe knows us better then we know ourselves, it knows what we need not what we want. To progress, to grow, to be. ❤️#spiritual#spirituality#spirit#soul#spiritualjourney#starseed#light#lightworking#lightworker#meditation#meditate#love#peace#union#duality#equality#freedom#crystal#crystalbeing#crystalchild#loveyourself#selflove#happy#universe#cosmos#truth#quote#awakening#awake
The statue of Buddha has become an international sign for peace. In college I was into some alternative ish and besides having several relatives become Buddhists, I was just into the existential ideas that came from scriptures, eastern religion and philosophy. I would sit for hours and discuss the meaning of duality, karma, Kali Yuga and love with new friends. Here's some dialogue I recently found concerning the topic of "non duality". It is a message from Buddha to Bahiya, a wanderer. Bahiya later received enlightenment after the encounter: he also died right after the encounter too. •👤
•🙅🏾 / / In the seen, there is only the seen,
in the heard, there is only the heard,
in the sensed, there is only the sensed,
in the cognized, there is only the cognized.
Thus you should see that
indeed there is no thing here;
this, Bahiya, is how you should train yourself.
Since, Bahiya, there is for you
in the seen, only the seen,
in the heard, only the heard,
in the sensed, only the sensed,
in the cognized, only the cognized,
and you see that there is no thing here,
you will therefore see that
indeed there is no thing there.
As you see that there is no thing there then you will see that you are therefore located neither in the world of this,
nor in the world of that,
nor in any place
betwixt the two.
This alone is the end of suffering. / /
🤦🏾♀️💆🏾Now days, I don't have the patience to even read through the text. I've noticed a sense of resentment and irritation from reading these types of messages.. I'm not sure if it was the learning years between graduating college and now but it just doesn't hit anymore. I think my tolerance for ancient scriptures /messages has decreased. Has society grabbed hold of my consciousness and pulled me into its web of plastic, sarcastic lullabies and literalism? Or have I simply outgrown spiritual philosophy?
Have you gone through something like this ?
