The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.
<👁🔥👁Love is not about being comfortable. It can be, and it´s nice when it is.
But really, they´re not the same things.
The ancients understood that the vibration of Love had nothing to do with whether you liked it or not.
Their greatest spirit-workers were those who did not make things seem comfortable. They created and forged new paradigms that often left them at the margins of society.
Because Love did not let them sit in Falsehood.
It tends to be less uncomfortable for the one embodying that energy, and more so for those around them.
Which was why the ancients very .. very.. clearly stated that it was expressed through Compassionate Detachment.
They didn´t say if it was a happy or a sad experience. Or even a kind one.
But what spiritual narrative has shown us is that the embodiment of Love-in-Spirit-and-Flesh was never truly accepted by whatever time and culture it presented itself to.
Because real Love scares the crap out of those who use the label without embodying that vibration. Especially authorities, powers and institutions that prefer to keep the status quo.
Those who carry it have - in the past - been persecuted, chased, vilified or excluded from the creation of religious narratives and histories. Or they removed themselves from it.
Mary Magdalene is a powerful case in point.
As is Jesus.
Siddartha could only become Buddha by leaving the privilege of his wealth and right of kingship behind. He discovered the Middle Path afterwards.
Karaikal Ammaiyar left her family and renounced her physical beauty, identity and caste and identified herself as a pey (wraith) to follow Shiva into the cremation grounds.
And the list goes on ... and on... Now I´m not saying that to be spiritual you have to be beaten up, excluded and living in poverty. That´s not a necessary baseline. And making that false equation justifies accepting abuse.
That is not why the Divine put you on this planet at this time.
What I´m saying is that talking about the Flame of Spiritual Love when you´re in your comfort bubble raises questions. As Love does not stay silent when your neighbour has nothing to eat, or is excluded from their birthright. 👇👇👇☯️☯️☯️
Perfection is a creation of human imagination, for it does not exist. Do not strive to be perfect, strive to be better than you were yesterday.
The consciousness of self is the greatest hindrance to the proper execution of all physical action #brucelee#selfknowledge
A flower is by nature soft, sweet and fragrant. So are we. We are tender, sensitive living beings, but due to being covered by layers of material elements we appear hard, even to ourselves. But in the depths of our hearts we are soft: we desire to love and be loved. To love is the living entity’s happiness, the very nature of the soul. .

Ставьте ❤️лайк и открывайте мир с новой стороны!
У каждого человека есть окружение, состоящее из близких людей, друзей, коллег, знакомых. Он формируется постепенно, из года в год кто-то добавляется, а кто-то уходит.
Жизнь не стоит на месте, и мы развиваемся вместе с ней. Со временем с кем-то наши взгляды и 🚕пути расходятся. Не нужно расстраиваться по этому поводу, ведь это совершенно естественный процесс.
Стоит лишь научиться отпускать людей и отношения, из которых мы уже выросли. И чем раньше увидим, что их пора завершать, тем лучше. Порой лишь привычка не дает разглядеть истинное положение вещей.
Однако, с каждым днем вокруг появляются новые интересные 👨👩люди, с которыми мы находим что-то общее. И чем активнее и разнообразнее наша жизнь, тем больше таких людей.
Почему стоит менять окружение? Каждый человек привносит что-то в нашу жизнь, а мы отдаем что-то ему. Любое общение является двухсторонним процессом.
Если в какой-то момент Вы заметили, что не находите поддержки среди своих друзей или Вам не с кем поделиться своими 💭мыслями, то это первый признак того, что стоит задуматься над сменой окружения.
Все очень индивидуально. Кто-то всю жизнь поддерживает отношения со школьными друзьями и чувствует себя комфортно. Другой же человек буквально через пару лет не находит с ними общих тем для разговора.
Здесь нет никаких правил и норм. Сегодня 💻интернет предоставляет нам практически безграничные возможности для общения. Кто ищет, тот всегда найдет!
А Вы часто меняете окружение? 🖊Буду рада Вашим комментариям.

Hello soft leafy greens! 🌿 Today, I pulled the Eight of Cups for our reading. I love this calming depiction. It gives me the sense that we are looking back at the path we've taken on our journeys. We are looking back at the things we've gently and lovingly released in our lives and what we've learned from each release. I see this in the way the waters from some of the chalices are blending into the river. I love that even the landscape here is in a state of shedding and letting go.
The Eight of Cups understands the state of letting go. It understands that release is actually a product of believing in and listening to ourselves. Once we've begun to tap into the river of our own truths and wisdom, we cannot help but to follow it, to let its water soothe and reinvigorate us. It is the river that brings us closer to our core and gently helps us realize the things in life that try to pry us away from ourselves.
The Eight of Cups supports us during these times of letting go. It asks us to view what we've left behind as beautiful lessons that have enriched us. They have supported and deepened our growth and our understanding of ourselves. The Eight of Cups understands that we must look back at them from time to time to glean more wisdom, but we must remember that our growth depends on us to turn around and continue along our journey.

*English below✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ Para compreender melhor a física quântica e como ela atua na nossa realidade é importante compreender alguns conceitos básicos:
1- Átomos são formados por partículas (prótons, neutros e elétrons); Dois ou mais átomos formam uma molécula.
2- Apesar dos cientistas desconhecerem a causa, as partículas estão sempre em movimento. As partículas se movimentam de 3 formas diferentes: translação ao redor do núcleo-; rotação entre seu próprio eixo (spin) que está relacionado ao tempo e dependendo do seu valor fará a partícula existir no passado, presente ou futuro; vibração segundo sua natureza de onda que está relacionado ao espaço e é responsável pela energia da partícula (quanto menos espaço a partícula possuir mais forte será sua vibração). 3- Os movimentos das partículas são independentes e podem ser onipresentes.
4- Tudo o que existe possui um campo quântico e interage com o meio através dele. Os corpos físicos atuam sobre os outros sem se tocarem.
5- Quando uma partícula é observada, a sua onda guia se transforma em onda estacionária passando a produzir um campo quântico ao redor dessa partícula materializada.
6- Ao se aglomerarem, as partículas dão origem a um novo campo quântico.
7- O interior do campo quântico não possui tempo nem espaço.
8- Nesses campos quânticos as partículas são capazes de se mover para o passado e para o futuro interconectando causas e efeitos que pertencem a tempos diferentes. Isso é o que muitas pessoas chamam de Karma: a lei que ajusta o efeito a causa. Muitos significados e interpretações diferentes são dados a palavra Karma mas para os reencarnacionistas a causa para muitas coisas na vida de uma pessoa está no passado, antes de ela ter nascido.

When to many have played with her emotions her heart becomes a difficult puzzle to unlock and just like any other puzzle it takes time to figure it out along with effort. But the right person will do so at the right time.... Ladies know your worth ~sincerely you sister Sash
#currentenergies 🔥🐉🔥WELCOMING CHANGE 🔥🐉🔥 Next week....New Moon in Sagittarius, Saturn moves into Capricorn, Winter Solstice and Mercury goes Direct. Already feeling the energies ramping up for next week's cosmic dance. There is an energy of clearing and tying up loose ends to make space for the new. The new moon on the 17th will be the day before Saturn officially stations into Capricorn. This moon is one of new beginnings as we begin a new Saturnian cycle in it's home sign. The new moon in Sagittarius brings the energy of idealism and free spiritedness. Breaking free. Breaking chains. Liberation. Saturn in Capricorn will be a time to look at our work. Our path and if our path matches our spirit. Our outer world is a manifestation of our inner world. With this transit we will also see more of us wanting more authority and respect. Respect is earned with hard work and dedication. Through the Saturn in Sagittarius transit we questioned our faith and beliefs. Now we come down to earth with Capricorn and see ourselves take form. Mercury goes direct in 10 days time. During a retrograde it is always important to remember to tune in and listen to what it is that needs tending to. A time to tune out the noise and confusion. Mercury in Sagittarius gives an emphasis on thinking about the big picture. Your future. The timing of this retrograde is great with the new moon in Sagittarius means that we can really put a lot of energy into the new. Winter Solstice comes to us the day before Mercury goes direct. It will be a time of faith, magic and change. The key to getting through it is to have faith in your process and gratitude in everything. Blessings to all. 🙏🏼 Photo from @zakharova_kaetano #alchemy#oneness#omnism#shadowwork#collectiveconsciousness#evolution#alchemy#sacredgeometry#higherself#dnaactivation#kundalini#ascendedmasters#chakras#astrology#selfknowledge#thecosmicnomad#innerwisdom#cosmicenergies#fifthdimension#divinefeminine#sacredmasculine#holyshiftcollective#astralprojection#Repost @thecosmicnomad
Awareness is the name of the game!
Think back to an earlier post which stated "You cannot contract the Infinite, but you can expand the individual." That's what we're discussing here with Self-Awareness... An ever expanding conscious awareness of you and your world, from the Spiritual to the material. #knowledge is a potent concept. Consider the inner anatomy of the human being that you are. 22 bones make up the skull (pause) 33 vertebra compose the spinal column (pause) The 3 great centers of activity are the Brain, Heart, Generative Organs (pause) there are 12 "gates" to the body (pause) now when you thumb through myth, fable, allegory, and scripture your awareness of the "topic at hand" begins to come into sharper focus for it is ever speaking symbolically about Y.O.U. For example, the old old aleph-bet is composed of 22 alpha-numeric-symbolic pictograms which is the origin of any and all verbalized thought forms. The same is true in a parallel sense of the numerals 0-9.
A large portion of our awareness is blocked by #paradigms which are a multitude of habits, often other peoples habits. The 🔑 is a healthy curiosity, study, and an educing out from within that which has always been there all along. Think of a kinked water hose, an abundance of water is there back of the hose and capable of freely flowing out to water plants, but a conscious kink could tie up the source and the plants would be negatively effected. The same goes for our limited awareness of ourselves and our environment. The beauty is in locating the kinks (often mental or emotional blocks) and allowing that energy to course through in its natural state assisting us in our ever expanding levels of Awareness.
