A Buddhist monk enters the formidable doors of Trongsa Dzong, the ancestral home of Bhutan's monarchy. The Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan has sat in isolation for thousands of years and only recently been thrust into the glare of modern times after centuries of solitude. This Buddhist kingdom, high in the Himalayas, had no paved roads until the 1960s, was off-limits to foreigners until 1974, and launched television only in 1999.  In 1972, the country stop relying on Gross Domestic Product as the best indicator of Bhutan’s progress in favor of “Gross National Happiness.” So if you want to visit the happiest place on earth, put Bhutan on your travel bucket list.

Bhutan has put environmental conservation at the heart of its political agenda. It’s pledged to remain carbon neutral, made it law that 60% of the country must remain forested for future generations, banned plastic bags, instituted a monthly pedestrian day that bans all private vehicles from its roads, and  announced its intention to become the world’s first 100-percent organic-farming nation. It goes without saying that the countryside is breathtakingly beautiful and pristine.

Dispelling Fundamental Illusions: Reduce The Appearance of Cellulite With The Help Of Science!
.
Cellulite often appears on the thighs, buttocks, lower abdomen, and upper arms of women. Approximately 85% of post-pubertal woman have a form of cellulite (Avram, 2004; Rawlings, 2006). Though rarely observed in males, cellulite develops due to hormone deficiencies (Avram, 2004). In order to combat cellulite, a basic understanding of it’s origins, and a look at the science behind the ‘treatments’  is required. .
What is Cellulite?
Our skin is structured like an onion with layers organized outermost to innermost; the epidermis, the dermis, and two layers of subcutaneous fat.(Rawlings, 2006). According to research, cellulite is caused by small protrusions of the first layer of fat within the dermis - these protrusions create a bumpy texture on the exterior of the skin. In men, connective tissues appear in a criss-cross pattern, creating a net-like barrier to keep fat away from the skin, but in women, connective tissues appear parallel, producing more ‘give’ in the skin’s texture. As the fat pushes against the tissues, the pressure transfers to the skin, producing a dimpled, uneven look. .
How To Reduce The Appearance:
Although there are countless proposed ‘treatments’ of cellulite, including surgery, injections, ointments, herbs, and lasers, studies revealed little to no efficacy in their use. The sad truth is there is no ‘quick fix’ to this common “problem”. Many studies have displayed a strong correlation between lifestyle changes (a shift in diet and exercise patterns), and a decrease in appearance of cellulite. Weightlifting has been shown to increase circulation (ie., move blood and lymph around the affected areas), and grow muscles, which causes every area of the body to naturally tighten and round out, giving off a smoother, fuller look.  It is recommended that you consume a nutrient dense diet within caloric restrictions and proper water intake to reduce cellulite. In addition, coupling diet and lifestyle with proper supplements such as omega-3 fatty acids, iron oxides, soy lecithin, and grape seed extract, can further combat the dimpled skin.

The mind is everything.

Todo mundo foge correndo da solidão. Ela é como uma ferida, dói.
Originalmente as pessoas não ficam felizes quando sozinhas. Elas se sentem muito vazias, acham que alguma coisa está faltando. Não podem viver sozinhas por muito tempo – elas buscam um relacionamento. Dessa forma o relacionamento é somente uma fuga de si mesmo.
Existem apenas dois tipos de pessoas: aquelas que fogem de sua solidão – a maioria, 99,99% das pessoas fogem de si mesmas; e o restante – 0,01% são os meditadores, que dizem: “Se a solidão é uma verdade, então é uma verdade; portanto não faz sentido fugir dela. É melhor penetrar nela, encontra-la, encará-la como ela é”. Osho diz:
Milhões de pessoas continuam mantendo seus relacionamentos mesmo que sejam simplesmente um inferno! Apenas devido ao medo de que serão abandonadas sozinhas; eles continuam apegados.
É uma miséria, um grande sofrimento, é uma tortura, mas ao menos alguém lhe faz companhia. Em comparação com ser deixado só, é melhor ser miserável, mas estar com alguém.
Essa é uma das razões porque milhões de pessoas prosseguem sofrendo e ainda assim se apegam aos mesmos relacionamentos - os quais não dão a eles nenhum conforto. Mas que são simplesmente destrutivos.
Somente o homem ou mulher que seja capaz de estar sozinho, também é capaz de se relacionar sem ser destruído por isso, pois estar sozinho não é mais um medo. Se algum relacionamento gera miséria, você simplesmente sai fora dele - ninguém pode lhe impedir.
É uma situação bem patética que milhões de pessoas estejam apegadas uns aos outros, simplesmente devido ao medo de que sejam abandonados e deixados sozinhos.
E estar só é a nossa natureza; não há nada a temer, você só precisa experienciar isso.

Uma vez que você experiencia no seu profundo silêncio do coração a beleza de sua solitude, o êxtase de sua solitude, todo medo desaparece, e você rirá de seu passado, de quão estúpido você foi e o que você tem feito consigo mesmo.

I do my best to have a positive impact and help every person I come into contact with. Things don't always go to plan, people sometimes get hurt, but if your intentions are pure and your heart is in the right place, then just leave it between you and the Universe and let the natural laws take over as you trust your intuition 👁... #LegendaryQuote #MotherTheresa 🙏🏽 #EachOneTeachOne

I've started attending a Buddhist Temple recently, in order to further my appreciation of the philosophy. This piece of writing reminded me of the latest discussion which was focused on "Conditionality." "The Principle of Conditionality points to the fact that all phenomena are ultimately devoid of 'essence'. They are, to use an important Mahaayaana Buddhist concept, 'empty'. And the same is true of you and I: we have no fixed, final, identifiable self-hood. Everything that we call 'ourselves' is simply a changing pattern of inter-relationships-patterns which are inextricably part of the great flux of conditions. 'No doer of the deeds is found, No one who ever reaps their fruit; Empty phenomena roll on: This view alone is right and true'.
And yet, to the extent that we are un-Enlightened, we all cling, however unconsciously, to the idea that we have a 'self', something which is 'us in our essential nature' something fixed and enduring, separate in its essentials from the rest of the universe.

This picture we have of ourselves is both false and limiting. Its principle limitation lies in its restriction of the possibility of change for the better. If we have a 'self', an essential nature which is fixed and enduring, then there is a limit to the extent to which we can grow as individuals. One hears examples of this idea all the time: 'I am who I am. I cannot change and you must accept me for what I am'. The idea that we were all somehow made to a particular pattern and set upon life's course by an unseen creator God runs deeply, albeit most often unconsciously, through contemporary Western society. We think we are who we are and there is a limit to the extent to which we can be expected to improve ourselves.

The Buddha's revolutionary insight, however, destroys this idea. The principle of conditionality makes it plain that we have no abiding essence. We are who we are solely in dependence upon all the myriad conditions which have preceded us. We become who we will become in dependence upon the conditions of the present and future." - http://www.westernbuddhistreview.com/vol1/conditionality.html #buddhism #photography #streetphotography #firstsite #gallery

Where the heart is full of kindness which seeks no injury to another, either in act or thought or wish, this full love creates an atmosphere of harmony, whose benign power touches with healing all who come within its influence. Peace in the heart radiates peace to other hearts, even more surely than contention breeds contention.

❤️🙏💚 None of us need approval from each other for the lives we live, all we need is love, kindness, and compassion towards each other — T. C. ☺️ #Repost #Buddhist_Poetry #Buddha #Buddhism #Faith #Life #Diversity #Love #Kindness #Compassion #Morningrealizations #Bliss #Calm #Faith #Self

Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now. As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love – even the most simple action.

The human body resonates at the same frequency as Mother Earth. So instead of only focusing on trying to save the earth, which operates in congruence to our vibrations, I think it is more important to be one with each other. If you really want to remedy the earth, we have to mend mankind. And to unite mankind, we heal the Earth. That is the only way. Mother Earth will exist with or without us. Yet if she is sick, it is because mankind is sick and separated. And if our vibrations are bad, she reacts to it, as do all living creatures.
