- THE TEN FETTERS -
There are Ten Fetters:
1) Lust, the desire for internal or external sensual objects.
2) Anger, frustration, hatred wanting someone to die.
3) Arrogance, thinking highly of oneself, and competing with others.
4) Wrong View, the view of a 'self' or personal identity that either lasts forever or is annihilated after death.
6) Wrong Belief, the belief that rituals or ritualistic behaviour can lead to liberation.
7) Desire for Existence, the desire for and enjoyment of a good life.
9) Stinginess, not wanting others to have the same prosperity or reputation as oneself.
10) Ignorance, not knowing the true nature of mind and body - this fetter accompanies all the others.
When ant of these ten fetters are present in a person, he or she will assume a new existence following death in the previous one and cannot be freed from the unsatisfactoriness of repeated existences. This is why they are called 'Fetters: they bind us to the unsatisfactoriness if repeated existences (Samsãra). - The Manual of Insight - Mahasi Sayadaw . .

A one-to-one Yoga session with the amazing @phoebegreenacre earlier this week. Following my bike accident and generally very tight hamstrings, I find yoga quite challenging. However, I absolutely love how it makes me feel at the end of every session and throughout that day. One-to-one sessions are exactly how I like it, the dedicated support and full energy focus. 🙌 Are one-to-one sessions the way forward for me? I think so!!!!! You can book a session with Phoebe on the @yogassential App, just download it now, link in my bio 👆#yogaeverydamnday#yogassential#yogiboss

Your words control your life, your progress, your results, even your mental and physical health. You cannot talk like a failure and expect to be successful.
We are in a constant state of flux, just look at our breath- receive and release.
There is a brief moment in between the breaths where perfect balance is achieved. We go through life trying to expand that brief moment, unaware that neither moment is superior to the next, but we've convinced ourselves that it is and as we attempt to control it, it's disrupted. Let it go, allow for the entire flow.
Lord of the dance pose teaches us to dance through the cycles, the habits we get stuck in. See ourselves as the divine beings we are, finally breaking free from our old patterns and suffering.
I have no idea what I am doing half the time. I think I live most of my life either figuring shit out through logic or I am running on blind faith, which are actually kind of polar opposites. But I never really know outcomes. I run off of gut feelings and burning desires. I chase my dreams and tear down walls that get in my way. Not the ideal secret to success explanation, partially because I am exhausted writing this, but it will have to do... Lens:📸 @haileeyoga
Grateful of experiencing all stages of life so far.
#grateful#mindfulliving#selftransformation "What if our religion was each other, if our practice was our life, if prayer our words? What if the temple was the earth, if forests were our church, if holy waters - the rivers, lakes, and oceans. What if meditation was our relationships, if the teacher was life, if wisdom was self-knowledge, if love was the centre of our being?" -Ganga White
