If an acorn is attached to being an acorn than it will never realize its potential to be an oak tree.
.

There is a fear that comes with non-attachment. People are generally attached to their happiness and the things that make them happy.
.

We are afraid of change and of non-attachment, this can become a perceived threat to our happiness.
.

It is very much the opposite. Change is the universal law of life and nature. To be non-attached is to understand the nature of change and align with the ebb and flow of the universe. Growth only happens through change. To realize your potential you must connect with change and disconnect from attachment.

The expansiveness of the universe, all experience of existence and the simplicity of a feeling or complexity of emotion, all exist in a thought. A thought that is the perception of life and life itself. Nothing more or less. As significant or insignificant as we think and only as beautiful as we choose it to be.

Yoga is the practice of opposites. Ha & tha, Masculine and feminine, sthira and sukha, ease and effort. Creating space and finding depth. Balance is finding the center where the opposites meet. Harmony is where the two work together.

Condition and stretch your fascia with my Elasticity & Plasticity bundle on @codyapp.
.
The elasticity and plasticity of our fascia are directly responsible for our flexibility, mobility, balance, reflexes, and proprioception. When fascia loses its youthful bounce due to inactivity, lack of mobility, or aging, we feel achy, sore, and unable to perform optimally in physical activities. When we stretch and condition our fascia, we increase mobility, promoting healthier movement and improved quality of life.

Announcing my new Elasticity & Plasticity bundle on @codyapp! This is so much more than a flexibility bundle. This bundle uses both dynamic rebounding movements and longer holds that increase the plasticity and elasticity of the fascial lines of the body.
.

Included free in this bundle is a free PDF which contains three different 60-day programs to approach fascial stretching and to optimize your training based on your level of flexibility, workout schedule, and goals.

An open heart brings you to a place of receptivity, where you're able to lower your walls and express your vulnerability. Through this vulnerability we find freedom and the true strength of an open heart. When you expand your open heart to others, your true inner light shines forward and you become a reflection for others to see their light.
.

Thank you @susannkind for your loving light and kindness and always keeping your heart wide open.

The process of conscious living comes from establishing a practice of awareness. Awareness is simply consciousness of the truth. Essentially this means being in the present moment without the stories of the past or fantasy illusions of the future. From awareness, create an intention. Conscious living is an action of intention, grounded in wisdom, in search of truth. When you live consciously, wherever you look is truth because truth is all there is.

Caring about what other people think of you causes you not to care about who you are.
.

A friend asked me "how do I stay authentic?"
I don't care about what people think of me. I believe in being the best person I can be, to be kind, caring and compassionate. But if the motivation is to be liked or to fit in, my motivation or intention will be for the wrong reason.
.

If you change so someone likes you and they don't, you might try to change again. You take on different personas that fit that individual person and what you think they would like the most. But those personas aren't really who you are and you lose your authenticity as a person. The people who you try and impress will see you as a fake.
.

Be who you are. Attract the people who like you for you and let go of those who don't. At the end of the day, the only person that needs to like you is you.

Discrimination is a creation of culture not nature.
.

We are not born knowing to hate others. We are educated to hate from our parents, friends, government, religion and media. Like all things learned, we can easily change our minds if we find better information out there.
.

What hurts us as a society is that we have hate ingrained into our beliefs. Beliefs by definition are not rooted in fact. We live in a world that believes in the discrimination of others because they are different.
.

There's good news! You and I have the power to influence. Educate before ignorance becomes belief.

We are always moving simultaneously in two directions. As we move towards something we are at the same time moving away from something else. As we respond to change or create the change ourselves, we get to choose our intention to move. Maybe it's to leave or escape a situation or maybe it's to pursue something more positive and fulfilling.
.

To move away from failure or to move towards success. Both are happening but we choose how we see it and this creates our intention or motivation for change. When you see movement and change happening in your life and your motivation is to move away from something, how can you change it to moving towards what you truly desire.
.

Failure happens when we focus on failure and success is created when our focus is success. Ask yourself, how are you moving?

We are under the illusion that we are separate, but we are not separate, we are connected. Connected doesn’t mean that we are the same, because we’re obviously different, but different doesn’t mean that we are separate.
.

Could you imagine if there was only one type of flower? What makes a flower beautiful is the fact that there are other beautiful flowers; otherwise we’d be like, “oh, more dandelions”, because there’s nothing else to define beauty. We find beauty in variety, and that’s what makes all of us beautiful.
.

If you look at a field of wild flowers, you see multiple different wild flowers but they are all still flowers. And we see them all as the same. The flowers are all connected through the soil. They are only disconnected when we pull them out of the ground, when we pluck them, when we remove them from their nature, from their environment. The second we pick a flower from the soil, its connection, it dies.
.

We think we are separate, so we are continuously removing ourselves from the soil. We are continuously uprooting ourselves and saying, “I am separate, I’m not a part of all of you”, but we are, we are connected. This is the maya (illusion), and we are in it. But if we go through the layers of self, we see all of this rooted in ourselves; our inner nature, connected to nature and each other.
