My father always told me when you need answers Fast! Fast on Water.. I've been going through it!!! The good thing about going through the rough spots in life is it's usually a sign that you're growing. Transition isn't easy. Rebirthing isn't easy. Shedding old skins takes work, tenacity and grit. When we find our grace in the storm it will deliver us to our Presence. Sat Nam!!!
There is a place inside of you that knows beyond all doubt. It knows what to do, how to do it and when the right time is to do it. That is the place of inner teacher. The one that resides in the cave of the heart. Either your practice is bringing you closer to that essence within you or further away. You either have more capacity to hold pairs of opposites or you don’t. Our practice doesn’t end once we step off the mat. Life is the practice. And the time is now that we need to cultivate this place within us. 📸@deborahandersoncreative #yoganidra#meditation#selfinquiry#mantra
Being in the moment doesn’t mean I’m not feeling the excitement and anticipation building as we ride into 2018. I feel the world is about to change. Beginning to wake up.
Self awareness is moment by moment observation of the self living to it’s fullest potential as a human being. Practice self-inquiry answering the questions below. Post an answer 👥❓❓❓❓❓🚲
1)Am I holding onto something I need to let go?
2)What worries me most about the future?
3)Have I done anything lately worth remembering?

You are not the body, you are not the mind, you are not a "person" living in the world. That, which seems to be like this, is not the Truth. It seems you are somebody inside the body, living in the world, but this is not Truth. This is something that is always changing. The world, the body, the mind, the experience of life and history change. This is not you, it is only a temporary, momentary appearance, it is not the Reality, the Truth. You need to find out what in fact, Truly, You are, and this is what we are dealing here, in Satsang. Marcos Gualberto ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Você não é o corpo, não é a mente, não é uma “pessoa” vivendo no mundo!" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Você não é o corpo, não é a mente, não é uma “pessoa” vivendo no mundo. Isso, que parece ser assim, não é a Verdade. Parece que você é alguém dentro do corpo, vivendo no mundo, mas isso não é Verdade. Isso é algo que está sempre mudando. O mundo, o corpo, a mente, a experiência da vida e a história mudam. Isso não é você, é somente uma aparição temporária, momentânea, não é a Realidade, a Verdade. Você precisa descobrir Aquilo que, de fato, em Verdade, Você é, e é disso que estamos tratando aqui, em Satsang. Marcos Gualberto ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The holidays can often lead to us running around depleting our reserves. Take time this season to fill your own cup. You gotta be selfish sometimes so you can be selfless when needed. #holidays#holidayseason#endofyear#resolution
Day 🔟 #toxicdump day ... So if you follow me and you're wondering why I'm recording myself working through all of my internal baggage it's because I'm participating in a challenge and each day we work through different things and so that's why I am doing it, but it's also a daily practice and really this process deeply connects to my yoga practice and self-inquiry work. So that's what up. This is my toxic stuff (some of it) and this to me is what life is about. Digging in deep and exploring all areas. I kinda feel like I might be getting annoying but #sorrynotsorry this is important stuff. If you want to start digging through your internal baggage... start coming to class maybe and we can dig together ❤️😇🙂😜 #BEYOUtifulU @cuchira #selfinquiry
Morning inspiration on the Self, by the attractive consciousness of Alan Watts. ✨🕯✨#selfrealization
I got this book almost two decades ago during massage school. It's perfect for morning reflections. Also, I looked down and realized that my breakfast matched my book. I'm gonna take it as a sign that it's gonna be a good day.
"To inquire is one of the four great diagnostic tools in Oriental medicine. To ask is to penetrate the mystery of one's being, to call forth. We gain entrance to each other by our questions, our callings to one another. In the question is a possibility. In the seeking for self is an opening for self. In the asking about symptom is an opening to the possibility within symptom, no matter what the symptom. In the inquiring into the familiar is an opening to the familiar. In the inquiry of who I am is the possibility of who I am. In the search for home is a possibility of home. When I use the word possibility here I mean it as a new seeing eye looking beyond our old interpretations. By possibility I mean a new listening or as ee cummings would say 'the ears of my ears awake.' " -Diane Connelly
this weekend I was lucky enough to hold space for 8 individuals who shared a curiosity about the meditative qualities of the mandala. we explored ideas around creativity as something bigger than producing physical ‘art,’ we sat in stillness and breathed together, and we explored self-expression through design.
I could not have asked for a better first experience hosting a mandala workshop, as laughter and love radiated from the group of new friends.
I got to hang out with the beautiful souls who brought me into this world, and who have stood behind every decision I’ve made to get to this place - in myself and in the world - that I spent many years searching for.
I am grateful for the support of my family & my community.

PERMISSION @cuchira #BEYOUtifulU . .
My def: Permission is the seeking of authority to do a certain task. May I have another cookie? Sure. I’m going to signal now to get over. *Blinkers on — goes. It is not (should not be) a stifling of oneself while awaiting validation from some more-important-Other. .
. My permission is between my emotional body and my analytical body. To stop suppressing unprocessed feelings, and to feel them. I ask permission to acknowledge my truth, even if it’s unpleasant. Especially when it is unpleasant. I ask permission to share this Truth with whomever needs to know it, as deemed appropriate at the time. I am not asking their permission, I am granting my own. Cheers, Warrior Freddie Jeté aka Human Rebecca.
You are not a yogi.
You are not a student.
You are not a teacher.
You are not a seeker.
You are not a person getting better.
You are not a person struggling.
You are not on a self-growth journey.
You are not transforming your self.
You are not changing.
You are not your name.
You are not your business.
You are not your title.
You are not even who you think you are behind all these things. “I am that I am”
Do not attach to “I” your concepts of “I”-Self.
All of it.
You are NOT.
Do not confuse “I am” with personal “I”-ness.
You- in reality- cannot be personal.
You PERCEIVE personality, personal identity, self-awareness, body, mind.
Anything you perceive is other than You.
So what is left?
What is behind the perceiver?
What is behind the concepts?
Where did you come from?
Where are you going ?
What are you really? #wakeup#beingness#youarenot#whoareyou ? #selfinquiry#invesitgations
This year... THIS YEAR! .
Makes my eyes be filled with tears of joy. Wonder. Amazement... .
This year I’ve been to places, experiences, and encounters that go WAY BEYOND what I could have ever expected or imagined. This year was leaving the cocoon, this year has been the answer in so many ways and the question in so many others. .
This picture I’m sharing here is just one of the many beautiful spots (and stops) I’ve been blessed enough to be at, during the last twelve months...
When I began The Journey as a self-transcendence process, I never imagined I was opening my soul to receive so many many blessings. .
I’m soooo ready for more spots and stops, more changes, more stability in the midst of constant movement. More Cacao. More love. More compassion. More growth. More not needing more. More freedom. More of whatever Life has for me. .
I know you know it’s hard to explain in words... When the gift is so big, you become the gift. Thank you to all the beautiful amazing soul-teachers that have been in my path. GRACIAS VIDA!! 💙✨ .
Be vigilant in watching your thoughts. As that Awareness you are not identified with any appearances, including your thoughts. Pick a better thought. Raise your frequency.
