N O T I C E v s N O I S E v i p a s s a n a l e s s o n i n p r a c t i c e Equanimity • mental calmness, composure, evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation. . 🧘🏻♀️ . The idea of “noise” is interesting Commonly defined as loud sound + distraction But even in complete silence there can be so much noise As it has nothing to do with who or what’s around us It’s about what we allow IN It’s a choice I can hear but I don’t have to listen I can feel but I don’t have to react Noise can seem like it’s happening to us + is outside of our control... In this practice All the bullsh*t reasons + excuses you could ever attempt to tell yourself fall away real quick + you realize it’s ALL you You are now FACE to FACE with all the fears doubts judgments First few days Sitting still with myself for that long Trying to only observe My mind would wander Reacting to everything I felt Clinging onto what felt good + comfortable Avoiding or trying to force away pain + discomfort Practice was HARD At times felt like torture But there comes a point where you’re doing it for so long, you realize YOU’RE OK You can get thru anything + everything ...You already are You notice everything changes constantly Just like in life We will experience an array of moments + feelings that are At times easy At times difficult But they all eventually pass + a new experiences will start That’s living. Constant ever changing beginning + ends So instead of clinging onto the pleasurable moments and avoiding hard ones... Observe Crazy with nothing you notice everything . . . Much To learn To Experience To Practice To Be As a person who is wildly creative + emotional - this is a definite challenge, but a practice I’m committed to develop 🙏🏽 #vipassana#meditation#anicca#impermanence#silence#patience#practice#truth#experience#reflection#perspective#pov#observe#studentforlife#learn#growth#grateful#connect#eightfoldpath#equanimity#awareness#practice#love#reality#authenticity#truth#bare#barenaked#portrait#potd

Here's a little fun fact we thought would be interesting to share! Your child may find typically "mundane" academic subjects a little more interesting to learn if you feed them cool facts related to it!!
Growing up a daughter of Azorean immigrant parents in North America with a Mother who was worthy of a blend of international cuisine awards, we did not dine out often. . My parents did not spoil us but worked tooth and nail so we needed for nothing and chose to spend their hard earned and raised work ethic money on returning to our island roots as often as they could. . Here I am, beyond the evolution of their dream, a life already more than half lived, sitting at my first Portuguese Michelin star worthy table, breaking bread and listening to the incomparable native song, Fado. . As the chills run through my being I too now understand that I live not for life's material, but for the glory of life's experience. . I spent 15 years of my adult life serving tables. The art of feeding all my five human senses this evening by this land of navigators, the endless open arms of its people, the peasant food prepared for royalty and the nostalgia that bleeds its Fado song, continues to be laid in my lap as if a pulse that beats me to my knees grateful, for all the ancestor souls that laid the cobblestone that walked me in this door and sat me down in gratitude redefined. . . . . . . . . . . . . #BodyRoots#Portugal#Legacy#Faith#Fate#Heart#Manifest#LiquidRoots#Moveolution#Fado#Portuguese#Azorean#Connection#Cobblestone#Europe#Lisbon#Open#Honor#Respect#Love#Yoga#Beauty#Core#MindBody#Dream#Travel#Breathe#Experience#Freedom#Gratitude

How have you been doing with incorporating daily self-care in your life? Has it been difficult? Improve your chances of success by finding the activity that fits you best this week! This is a scientifically proven tip for you that applies to many areas of our lives. The secret is to find the activities and experiences that fit you best. This little secret can drastically increase your chances of success and improve your positivity and happiness. For example: If I decide to begin running every day but I hate the experience, then how long do you think I can sustain that change? However, if instead I tried different activities until I found that I love spin classes, I will be significantly more likely to find time for it in my daily schedule.
