Yesterday was about 2 runs and two different missions, first run I was doing as much as I could before my girl went out with her homie, so luckily I was able to bang out 4 + miles in beautiful 80 degree weather and surprisingly enough that strip of town was quiet so I had the sidewalks to myself.
The second run happened late that night at 10pm at LACMA where I decided to let go of my social anxiety and decided to do the anniversary run with @blacklistla which incidentally spawned about 300 plus runners last night, @gift.davis is usually there and is my hype man and for others too but he wasn't there and I didn't know anyone but fuck it, I'm there for community, support and to conquer my social fears, needless to say I smashed my PR for a 5k chopped it with @blacklistla own @wavyymarv who I connected with on IG, we talked mutual friends, the mutual friends from all over the world and how the run community is a family ........ I felt it last night, a far cry away from when I couldn't even run a mile without being in excruciating pain, now I'm running with one of the biggest run groups in the world and this has now given me the confidence to run with any run group anywhere, so now if I'm in your town, best believe I'm going to find a run group and just do the damn thing.
Thank you @blacklistla for the Acai bowl πŸ‡πŸπŸπŸŒ and the great time, Happy anniversary and thank you for letting me be part of this great community πŸƒπŸΎπŸƒπŸΎπŸƒπŸΎ My face is saying "Fuck I made it ..... now Let's grow" in ode of my man @gift.davis πŸ‘ŠπŸΏπŸ‘ŠπŸΏπŸ‘ŠπŸΏ #todaysreality #todaysmeditation #zenrunning #zenrunninggains #twoadays #veganrunner #blacklistla #runclub #runfamily #mondaynights #muralwatch #giftdavis #girlstour #dtla #wilshire #streetahtlete #werunla #lanights #streetrunning #addictedtothepavement #10morepoundstogo #blackrunners #blackzenandveganaf

The light of the sun is the manifestation of the clarity of the sky; and the sky is the basic condition necessary for the manifestation of the sun's light. So, too, in the sky two, three, four, or any number of suns could arise; but the sky always remains indivisibly one sky. Similarly, every individual's state of presence is unique and distinct, but the void nature of the individual is universal, and common to all beings.

Namkhai Norbu, Dzogchen

This weekend was about taking time, holding and creating space, being soft but flexible, speaking ......not just from the head but from the heart and the body and it was beautiful because it was natural and organic with resounding intellect that came from such vulnerability and strength as POC who practice Buddhism to the core.
First off, will somebody get Booker on IG, the world needs to see strong black women in the guise of Buddhism and this powerful teacher along with @joannaharper65 are truly amazing and I'm truly blessed to have these women as my teachersπŸ™πŸΏ
Thank you @blkb3rry for showing and proving that being a black body in Buddhism is Auspicious AF and I give thanks to universe for the Kingship ..... I have a lot to learn from you πŸ™πŸΏ
Last but not least @andrehardysr for orchestrating Dharma in such a beautiful way.... a 1000 bows to you sir πŸ™πŸΏ Thank you @noahlevine108 for being My Obi Wan βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨πŸ‘ŒπŸΏ #todaysreality #todaysmeditation #itsnotjustforthegram #auspicious #poc #buddhism #anewlook #truedharma #meditateanddestroy #reallife #sangha #family #community #unityisstrength #blackzenandveganaf

Actual facts!!!!! I did a detox on my time line and I'm about to do more........ listen, I admit when I first came on IG, I did shit for likes and what not and was all bout being instafamous and all that bs, then I would watch cats who had a lot of noteworthy posts but that was it, meeting them in real life I saw they were plastic, empty and all show and no substance.
Now it's funny hearing people say " Do it for the gram" ..... instead of doing it for yourself.
So long story short I know and love myself to not be worried about likes and losing followers, I want REAL people following me, as I follow real people that inspire me.
I don't follow you just because you have 10/20 k followers, I follow people who not only tell the truth but who are not afraid of the truth and live it..... it's called True Dharma.
Thank you @illuminaticongo for this poignant reminder βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨πŸ‘ŒπŸΏ Be yourself and trust love yourself, take that mask off.

Andre Hardy Jr x Hakim Tafari x Andre Hardy Snr x Devin Berry

1 aspiring Buddhist and 3 Black powerful buddhist in the shape and form of Black men.
Tonight was so just so auspicious and as much as want to ramble on about the magic at the @againstthestream POC sangha, it was just incredible, the vulnerability, the dialogue, the community and commitment of being a person of color in Buddhism was talked about, challenged and held in the highest regions and I'm so glad that I was able to be a part of a game changing weekend.
@andrehardysr is the first Black executive director of a Buddhist temple in the US as far as I know and to see him orchestrate this was incredible, along with his wife Joanna Harper, the incredible Leslie Booker and my longtime IG Brother and my old/new Dharma brother @blkb3rry
This is going to be a HEAVY weekend and I can't wait........ I told you I was going to bring some Blackness to American Buddhism and with the help of these brothers we are going to do just that.
May Buddha be praised.......
Special s/o to @andrehardyjr_ for having great dialogue after sangha with his father and the brother Rafael.........oh yeah, I think I just talked him into doing the LA marathon with us.

This week has been about swallowing the EGO and going back to basics...... work, life, relationships and of course running BUT it was what I needed to clean the starter, re up on the fuel injectors, strip down the mainframe and reboot.
Dharma has a great way of telling you that it's time to hit the refresh button, it was truly time for me to do that.
No matter how much we think we are good at something or feel untouchable or unbreakable, Buddha is there to flick you on your soul and tell you to chill out and humble yourself...... it really fucking hurts, it's embarrassing and you have a sense of shame, you can either pick up the pieces and start again or just give up.
Again I humbled I self, picked up the pieces, breathed gently and started from the beginning, karma provided the backdrop for the end of the week by helping with some new presents that I was not expecting, a rebound in a positive sense in other areas which I will expound on another day and lastly being able to sit at Dharma practice at the POC weekend retreat with some beautiful folks of Dharma and lastly going on a run and smashing my 3k with ease and finally reaching a 8 minute + plus with ease.

I hate being humbled but it's essential in growth.

So as my man @gift.davis and my brothers @blkrunorg would say....... LET'S GROW 🌱✨✨✨✨✨🌲 Namo Amitoufo πŸ™πŸΏβœ¨βœ¨βœ¨πŸ‘ŒπŸΏ #todaysreality #todaysmeditation #lessonsinlife #humilityisthekey #humblethyselfandjahwillguideini #zenrunning #zeninlife #veganrunner #marathonmonk #runmeditaterepeat #buddhistrunnersofig #blackrunnersofig #blackzenandveganaf #thepractice #themeditation #themarathon #continues #letsgrow

I know it seems that I have a lot of sneakers but to be honest since moving to LA I have given 5 old sneakers to random homeless people that I have encountered on the streets along with two trash bags of clothes, there has also been another 12 sneakers that I have put on the auction block because who honestly has the time to wear 50 sneakers? I have realized over several months that I only need shoes I run in or will really wear....... so I have scaled down from 50 to about 10 and I feel really good about it, as well as feeling good and giving my old pairs to some people who don't have any shoes on their feet.
Long story short, It's all about paying it forward and helping those who need it more, Karmically and for the sake of minimizing it was time to detox and clear out some old energy.
The look on the face of the guy I gave some Air max pro 90s was priceless....... it's the little things in life πŸ™πŸΏ #todaysreality #todaysmeditation #payitforward #wastenotwantnot #givetotheneedy #helpthehomeless #helpallsentientbeings #buddhistthoughts #minimalism #karma #dharma #detox #theyneeditmorethanme #blackzenandveganaf
