Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you.
If you leave it, you may come back again, saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are. You must let it find you."

Personal note : How do you yoga ..how often do you practise... ✨
Ok, here’s my answer. Every day in any form. Yoga for me is - Flexibility of mind and soul. ✔️
The bonus in yoga comes with practise of the asanas. The strenght in body of making the harder poses/ asanas comes after years of practise. Social media is a good advertiser, and comes in many forms.. So don’t give up if you cant’t do the pose.
I still get impressed though, because I know the hardwork behind, to keep that focus and devotion is impressive, and inspiering. Social media is one thing - keep’n it’s real is another.
The journey is yours.
That’s how I look at it.
Have a wonderful day wonderful souls.
Stay golden 🙏🏼🕉 add some 🦄🌈 a few 💪🏼💪🏼 to that ✨🤸🏼♂️
#Romans7#struggle of #sin ... The #battle#within
“But I need something more! For if I know the law but still can’t keep it, and if the power of sin within me keeps sabotaging my best intentions, I obviously need help! I realize that I don’t have what it takes. I can will it, but I can’t do it. I decide to do good, but I don’t really do it; I decide not to do bad, but then I do it anyway. My decisions, such as they are, don’t result in actions. Something has gone wrong deep within me and gets the better of me every time.
It happens so regularly that it’s predictable. The moment I decide to do good, sin is there to trip me up. I truly delight in God’s commands, but it’s pretty obvious that not all of me joins in that delight. Parts of me covertly rebel, and just when I least expect it, they take charge.
I’ve tried everything and nothing helps. I’m at the end of my rope. Is there no one who can do anything for me? Isn’t that the real question? The answer, thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does. He acted to set things right in this life of contradictions where I want to serve God with all my heart and mind, but am pulled by the influence of sin to do something totally different.”
Romans 7:17-25 MSG
Have you told yourself you wanna do good but cannot do it? Do you battle with your own #thoughts and decide to follow your #desires ? .
The struggle is indeed real. But what helps us in our struggles is the #commitment to #honor#Christ and make our desires #obedient to #God 's will. It sure isn't easy... That's why we all need a #Savior .
Alter Egos Brand is about finding balance within ourselves and breaking stereotypes. Everyday we deal with many things in our lives that can be difficult and can affect other aspects of our life. Whether we're having a bad day at work or having problems with a significant other and sometimes those bad vibes can carry on to other parts of our lives. And for me, a way to keep my mind balanced was smoking marijuana. I understand that smoking isn't for everyone but I also want to break the stereotype or the negativity that's associated with smoking marijuana. Uniting everyone that believes in finding balance within ourselves, whether your a smoker or not. Everyone wants peace of mind.
The artwork for the shirts are visual interpretations of my mood and finding an artistic way to express them. Inspired by graffiti, character design, and tattoo style artwork. The reason I chose a panda skull for the logo was to break the stereotype of pandas being "cute" or "adorable". In reality a panda is still a bear and I'm sure if you encountered one in real life, they're not so "cute" and "friendly". I mean, pandas eat and break bamboo fairly easy. Imagine what would happen if a panda got a hold of you? It's probably not looking good for you right now. I also wanted to give the panda a new perspective and give the panda image an edge.
I appreciate your support and I hope you continue to support my brand.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Nothing can dim the light which shines from within. We are stars wrapped in skin, the light you are seeking has always been within. 🌠☀😙
Sleepless night and racing untrue thoughts have had me in a weird, up and down, mood lately. Who else suffers from living too much inside their head? My best friend told me to take some time and listen to my heart ask God questions and go within. It seems impossible at times because distractions and thoughts can be soooo loud and obnoxious! Turning the volume down and plugging into deep breaths and heart beats. #donotdisturb#peace#silence#within#energy#meditation
