Shiva’s third eye has always fascinated people. It stands there dramatically on his forehead ready to release a missile of fire and destroy the world. Many people assume that is why Shiva is called the `destroyer’. They also assume that this eye opens when Shiva is angry. Shiva expresses rage and sorrow at the death of his spouse, Sati, threatening to destroy all by opening his third eye, until all the gods salute him, sing songs to his glory and beg him to calm down.

Yes, Shiva is furious when his wife, Sati, immolates herself. The story goes that Sati marries Shiva against the wishes of her father, Daksha, who wants this daughter, like his other daughters, to marry a Deva, or god, rather than an ascetic. In retaliation, Daksha organizes a fire-sacrifice or yagna and invites all his sons-in-laws except Shiva, to partake of the ritual. Angry at the exclusion of her husband, Unable to bear this public humiliation, Sati kills herself by leaping into the sacrificial fire. When Shiva learns of this event, he experiences deep rage and sorrow. He transforms into Virabhadra, a fierce warrior, and goes on a rampage attacking everyone who had been silent witnesses to Sati’s death. He stops only when Daksha is beheaded.
But Shiva opens his third eye much later, when Sati is reborn as the daughter of the mountains, Parvati, and, smitten by Shiva, tries her best to win him. Shiva remains impassive, exasperating both her and the Devas who are eager to get Shiva married. So they send Kama, the god of lust, to raise desire into Shiva’s heart. Unfortunately, the result is not quite what anyone expects. Instead of opening his eyes and expressing his desire for Parvati, Shiva opens a third eye, in the centre of the forehead and out comes a missile of fire that sets Kama aflame. Before Parvati’s horrified eyes, Kama is reduced to a pile of ashes. It is then that Shiva gets the name destroyer. 🔥👁🔥

Nevertheless, pediatricians and herpetologists are not marching together because these are ordinary times. The obvious impetus is the dominance of a president and a political party increasingly contemptuous of scientific inquiry and inclined to flagrant denial of evidence. On the campaign trail, Trump peddled skepticism of climate change and vaccine safety. And in the scant three months that he has been president, his administration has already set in motion a number of policies that both threaten the integrity of research and the citizens who depend on it.

Consider the Environmental Protection Agency’s sudden about-fact on chlorpyrifos, a pesticide sprayed on more than half the apples sold in the United States, as well as wheat, corn, soybeans, strawberries, broccoli, asparagus, walnuts, and dozens of other crops. It works by attacking the nervous system—of bugs, but also humans who come into contact with it. According to a comprehensive 2014 study of pesticides and developmental issues, pregnant women who lived near fields or orchards sprayed with chlorpyrifos were three times as likely to have a child who would develop autism. Based on this and other research linking the pesticide to developmental issues, the EPA under President Obama was close to banning it. But it was left to the Trump administration to finalize the regulation.

Dow Chemical, which sells chlorpyrifos, and other industry groups aggressively lobbied to halt the ban. Dow was particularly well-positioned to do so: Trump appointed former Dow lobbyist Mike McKenna to lead the transition team at the Department of Energy, and Dow CEO Andrew Liveris to head the American Manufacturing Council. In January, the company donated $1 million to the organizing committee for Trump’s inauguration. A few weeks later, EPA administrator Scott Pruitt announced that his agency would decline to ban chlorpyrifos, despite the recommendation of its own chemical safety experts.

"Fire is His head, the sun and moon His eyes, space His ears, the Vedas His speech, the wind His breath, the universe His heart. From His feet the Earth has originated. Verily, He is the inner Self of all beings." Atharva Veda, Muṇḍaka Upanishad 2.1.4. eh, 159-160 🔥🌞🌙🌀📚🌬💫🌏🕉

Simply live life. Live an experience and don't try and understand it or fix it with words. Sit in the presence of wonder without having to label it beautiful. Not every experience you have can be explained with words, it simple must be felt. And if you must use words, use them poetically. As words have power.

So this week is fashion week, and a lot of you may or may not realise the impact your shopping choices and clothes have on the environment and people around the Earth. Watching 'The True Cost' was an eye opener and I encourage everyone to watch it - it is available on Netflix. Do you ever stop and question how something can be made so cheaply? How much suffering and pain must go into it for you to wear that item? Now obviously I am not a seamstress or a fashion designer, but I have always had an interest in fashion and ethical choices. I believe we have the responsibility in our lives to make sure we are causing as little harm as possible. And the clothes we wear can cause harm. When you buy a £5 t-shirt from h&m or somewhere like that, you are buying into someone's suffering. The fibre's hurt our planet and the dyes are made with chemicals. Some clothes are even plastic, such as polyester. Do you really want to be wearing that on your largest organ, your skin? This week, if you are going to shop for clothes, I encourage you to shop at one of the many amazing designers that I have tagged in this picture. Ask the question, 'who made my clothes?' ❤ wouldn't you rather know the person as an individual and have a beautiful​, sustainable piece of clothing that will last you a lifetime, instead of buying into a 52 week cycle of endless consumerism and suffering with clothes that just don't last? 💙💙

PINEAPPLE INFORMATION
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Foods high in vitamin B6 and bromelain, the enzyme found in pineapple may reduce discomfort from swelling and inflammation that affects the hands and wrists of people who suffer from this condition.
Acute sinusitis, sore throat, arthritis and gout – pineapple can help inflammatory effects, reducing swelling in these inflammatory conditions and speeding recovery from injuries and surgery i.e. postoperative swelling. ***To maximize bromelain’s anti-inflammatory effects, pineapple should be eaten alone between meals or its enzymes will be used up digesting food.#pineapple #spiritual #enlightenment #meditation #crystals #chakras #healing #wisdom #awakened #energyhealing #therapy #spiritualresponsetherapy
