The power of words. The power of the mind. The power of the heart. #mandeladay reminds us that optimism, idealism and utopia are the true motor of change.
Cherish your vision and start from there. "I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death." #bethechange #world #peace #positivelife #optimist #idealist #vision #inspiration #mandela #southafrica #tolerance #education #change #equality #poverty #consciousness #nelsonmandela #beyou #belove #positiveminds #positivevibes #mindfulness

@buildon:
The literacy rate in Nepal is 65 percent, but by building schools alongside community members in rural villages such as Bankanari, together we are breaking the cycle of illiteracy for current and future generations in Nepal. β€’
Last year with Team Cila we raised enough money to build a school in Nepal, finance a literacy program for adults, and on top of that we had enough to finance a program to send 11 inner city inspiring kids from Detroit to Haiti to build another schools πŸ™ β€’
If you too want to get involved it's very simple! All you need is a few friends or big hearted people who want to make a difference, some ideas to fundraise, a bit of patience and internet ! You too can create your team and build a school in Nepal, Haiti, Senegal or Malawi.
Education is the key for these countries. We have so much to learn from these kids and their culture!
All they need is a place to get together, feed their soul with knowledge and creativity and then offer their gift to the world πŸ™ β€’
I'm so grateful to be a part of the big @buildon family.
Thank you @skylerbadenoch and @supytauthong

β€’ "Spending time around trees and looking at trees reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and improves mood. Numerous studies show that both exercising in forests and simply sitting looking at trees reduce blood pressure as well as the stress-related hormones cortisol and adrenaline. Looking at pictures of trees has a similar, but less dramatic, effect. Studies examining the same activities in urban, unplanted areas showed no reduction of stress-related effects. Using the Profile of Mood States test, researchers found that forest bathing trips significantly decreased the scores for anxiety, depression, anger, confusion and fatigue. And because stress inhibits the immune system, the stress-reduction benefits of forests are further magnified." β€’

Spending time in nature helps you focus. Our lives are busier than ever with jobs, school, and family life. Trying to focus on many activities or even a single thing for long periods of time can mentally drain us, a phenomenon called Directed Attention Fatigue. Spending time in nature, looking at plants, water, birds and other aspects of nature gives the cognitive portion of our brain a break, allowing us to focus better and renew our ability to be patient. β€’ Hike ?

The spiritual path is farthest from easy. It requires undoing aspects of ourselves. "The hard core of egotism is difficult to dislodge, except rudely" πŸ™ #yogananda #swami #krishna
