There's always Resistance before Surrender
An Intense Storm of Emotions entangled in the Resisting
It's a Defense Mechanism
It's also a Choice
Resist or Allow
Breathe and Choose
Surrender is really about Evolution
It’s about giving in to the Natural Evolutionary Process
A Catalyst to Heal
And any Resistance to what IS automatically stunts our Growth.
And it makes us so Tired and Heavy
Transformation is coming either way
Awareness is the necessary prerequisite to find the way out of Suffering Storm
Let Go of the Destructiveness and Misconceptions
It's all Lies
Brought to you by the Demons in our Heads
Acknowledge them and Expose them with Truth not Judgement
Take their Power Away
This is the Path to Love
Unconditional Love of Self
Lay that Heavy Head down and Surrender
There's Beauty in Surrendering
There's Power in Surrendering
It’s only in Surrendering that we can be Peaceful and Free and feel Unconditional Love
Over time the Resistance Response is no longer Engaged
Accept and Embrace Pain as a Gift
An opportunity for Growth Learning Resilience
To Discover your True Self
Liberate yourself from your Mental Shackles
Be delicate with your emotions. Whether you realize it or not, there is a reason behind each and every one of them. Accept what it is that you feel, and take care of yourself accordingly. 📸: @brendan.bannister
I never loved you for just your perfections. I never loved you under the condition that you'd remain this one perfect version of yourself for the rest of our lives...
The universe has been exposing me to the painful view of conditional love. How so? By exposing me to its unconditional love. It has touched me, embraced me and i cannot unfeel what i have felt. As if i have spent my whole life chewing on pictures of cheeseburgers convinced it was the real thing.
I need the real thing. It is a soul-craving that cannot be denied, and there is no reason to.
It is here. It is in us. WE block its flow; to ourselves and others.
Unconditional love doesn't shame you. It doesn't judge you. It doesn't resent you. It doesn't loom threats over you. It doesn't uninclude you. It doesn't shun you. It doesn't talk you down. It doesn't lie to you (blatantly or by omission). It doesn't put its ego first. Its not controlling. It doesn't manipulate. It doesn't come from a 'holier than thou' stance. It doesn't ignore you. It doesn't invalidate your feelings. It doesn't demand. It doesn't condemn. It doesn't hold grudges. It doesn't blame. It doesn't look for an enemy. It doesn't keep score.
Unconditional love lets you breathe; delicious, delectable, flight-giving breaths because it lets you be you. It stands with you, hand-in-hand as you change and discover yourself. It fosters those changes. It nurtures expansion...and continues to love you every step of the way. 💖
#hurricanemaria ... Day 5️⃣0️⃣.
*Mother Nature* wisely and discreetly teaching us how it’s done; a.k.a. ‘dando cátedra’... ✔️1 pic —> Day immediately after Maria... Notice the grays, the wintery skeletal trees, the military plane... A very surreal, somber, and humbling day... ✔️2 pic —> Today... [#prselevanta = PRrises] Flower peeking and luscious greens coming back to life, to grace us with their beauty, and to certainly provide a more healthy and refreshing atmosphere...[appreciating the wind caressing my cheeks and blowing my hair]... Grateful for the learning process and, ultimately, the expansive experience... 🙏🏼🕊😌🌱🇵🇷
“If nature is your teacher, your soul will awaken” - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe ...and hence, you will harmoniously flow, welcome, and understand everything better. #todopasa#naturetreasure#blessingsindisguise#yourcenterisyourpeace#surrenderisbliss#whatyouresistpersists
✨ACCEPTANCE✨is one of the key ingredients to living a life of peace ... When we resist what is, we only create more of what we are not accepting, thus creating deep disharmony within ourselves and possibly those around us..The practice of acceptance requires deep consciousness and awareness... Sometimes life does not seem to match the constructed picture we have in our heads of how we think things should be... Lovingly accept all of it... for it is all a gift, even the so called “bad”.. These experiences help us to grow and shape who we are as people.... Flow through it...Respect it...If there are things in life we simply can not accept, find peace around this too and know deeply that you have the power within you to change things if you so choose...Even if all you can change is your mindset...Sending blessings, peace and love to you all ...🙏🎋☯️✌️❤️✨#wordsofwisdom#acceptance#whatyouresistpersists#flowthroughlife#flow#innerpeace#peace#harmony#loveyourlife#yingyang#yogalife#yogalifestyle#yoga#belikewater#love
This is true, even if it’s something you’re trying to avoid. Putting a lot of energy into not being or coming across a certain way ends up working against you. Focus more on the things that you want rather than the things that you don’t. #whatyouresistpersists#bepositive#focusfox
We want to learn, grow and step into all that life has to offer us, yet we want to do it without experiencing any of the challenges or difficulties of life. It's truly not how it works.
If we want to fully appreciate life, we must first experience it. We may not always understand it, and it may not make sense, but we must experience it. That means stepping into it, leaning into the discomfort and not resisting it.
We get to decide what we want to create from our life. It's entirely up to us. .
A fulfilling life is not about being 💯 certain. It is about taking risk and accepting the uncertainty of the outcome.This is key in OCD recovery as well. . .
OCD obsessive thoughts usually begin with the question "what if?" Compulsions, both mental and physical, relieve the anxiety caused by the "what if" thoughts. The practice of accepting doubt and embracing uncertainty is about living with the discomfort in the uncertainty. It is about giving yourself permission to feel the physical sensations of the anxiety. It is realizing that compulsions don't bring lasting relief or reassurance. The comfort is fleeting. .
Let go of the idea that you can be certain of safety. That pursuit will keep leading you down the rabbit hole. Instead embrace the unknown. You can do it and it gets easier with practice! #ocd#ocdawareness#anxiety#mindfulness#mindbodyspirit#mentalhealth#whatyouresistpersists#nyc#cbt#therapy
It's cool Sunday...I didn't want to rest, sleep, wake up with the sun. Nope.
You woke me at 3:30am...I resisted till 4:15am and then chose to go with the flow 😏. Once I'm in it and when my mind is full-function, I dig these quiet, early morning sessions! ☕️
Happy Sunday 🌻
While some have mastered the art of manipulation, I have mastered the art of escape. But there are some things in life that are hard to resist like a very strong connection or a really good chocolate. 😋
Thank you to my wifey for giving me some love. She said that Alfajores is a very Latin treat. I have learned a lot about her culture in the short amount of time we have known each other.
