“My ability to let go of desires has served me quite well in this lifetime. In letting them go, I am not rejecting the passion they evoke within me, I am releasing the energy into the universe & allowing it to manifest as it will. As I open my eyes, my arms follow suit & in the midst of this expansion, I receive the most loving hug from all of the universe.”
“Once we begin to celebrate what our body does rather than obsessing on how it looks, we start to appreciate our body as an instrument rather than an ornament.”
— (via sixsecondshigh)

“You say you wish to be free of desires and expectations. And it is true: your own desire is disturbing you. For even noble desires such as the desire to save the world or to be a good person or even to attain liberation can actually distract you from discovering what is truly already here—natural, unbound contentment. Once you have a desire burning inside, you will be waiting anxiously for it to be fulfilled, and if it is not fulfilled, your anxiety will increase. So it is good to be open to the possibility of dropping all desires. Desire promises much but fulfills little. Though it is possible, most people find it impossible to drop even a single desire as they feel they will lose something precious. It is like taking a dry bone from a dog. So rather than telling you to drop desire, I say, find out what it actually promises to give you, and also identify the actual person who will receive it. Don’t assume. Find out. Is any of this real? These questions can feel deeply challenging as they threaten to expose ego’s unreality. Very few go beyond to discover their real power as the undivided Self and so put an end to delusion.”

“If you wish to be happy, no one can stop you. Similarly, if you wish to be free, no one can stop you. In fact the universe encourages and supports your freedom. Why? Because to be happy and free is your natural state.
Don’t try to change the world. First, change yourself or rather, your self-perception, and you find the world automatically corresponding to the level of your understanding.
You will find that it has always been you who set the pace and depth of your experience by recognising and honouring your true nature.”
— Mooji (via oceanandwave)
“KARMA CHAMELEON
If somebody treats you with unkindness, it’s likely they have endured similar treatment in the past from others, and are only repeating unconscious patterns in search of a love they cannot find. They will continue to repeat until they wake up from their nightmare of projection, and truly see who you are, who they are, who we all are.
An excuse? No.
A way to begin to find compassion for them, to stop taking their behaviour so personally and so seriously, to begin to break the cycle of violence? Perhaps. And that ‘perhaps’ is everything when it comes to loving each other.”
— Jeff Foster (via oceanandwave)
“The Master gives himself up to whatever the moment brings. He knows that he is going to die, and he has nothing left to hold on to: no illusions in his mind, no resistances in his body. He doesn’t think about his actions; they flow from the core of his being.”
— Lao Tzu (via thecalminside)

This Too Shall Pass is a series of food packaging were the packaging has the same short life-span as the foods they contain. The package and its content is working in symbiosis.
Smoothie packageGel of the agar agar seaweed and water are the only components used to make this package. To open it you pick the top. The package will wither at the same speed as its content. It is made for drinks that have a short life span and needs to be refrigerated, fresh juice, smoothies and cream for example.Rice PackagePackage made of biodegradable beeswax. To open it you peel it like a fruit. The package is designed to contain dry goods, for example grains and rice.Oil packageA package made of caramelized sugar, coated with wax. To open it you crack it like an egg. When the material is cracked the wax do no longer protect the sugar and the package melts when it comes in contact with water.
