All Your Actions are Echoes

Posted in friendship, health, life, love, relationships, spirituality, yoga by the consummate on October 26, 2009

“It’s easy to get into a fit of anger or do some harm. But to do good, you need more courage, and in that way you benefit yourself. That’s why, when the Bible asks you to love your neighbor as your own self. You don’t lose anything by doing so. Rather, you are the biggest gainer. Conversely, if you can’t bring good to yourself, you can’t do good to others. It happens automatically. It’s something like a boomerang; just throw it, and it comes back to you. Anything that you throw comes back. All your actions are echoes. What you give, you get back, but several times more. So, if you want to gain more, give more.

God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.”

– Swami Satchidananda

What Have I Got?

Posted in health, life, love, relationships by the consummate on October 24, 2009

Oh yeah, a lot. With the ups come the downs and you know it’s bad today but tomorrow it’ll be better. With the power of manifestation and faith in the Almighty, one can make anything happen. Besides, like Nina says, got my boobies, got my heart, got my soul…nobody can take it away!

PS: Happy Birthday Kellee!! Nina always reminds me of you. Hope you and your wifey are living it up in Hawaii. ❤

Mind Guerillas

Posted in art, artists, beauty, friendship, health, life, love, relationships, spirituality, yoga by the consummate on October 20, 2009

We’re playing those mind games together,

Pushing barriers, planting seeds,
Playing the mind guerilla,
Chanting the Mantra peace on earth,

We all been playing mind games forever,

Some kinda druid dudes lifting the veil.
Doing the mind guerilla,
Some call it the search for the grail,
Love is the answer and you know that for sure,
Love is flower you got to let it, you got to let it grow,

So keep on playing those mind games together,

Faith in the future outta the now,
You just can’t beat on those mind guerillas,
Absolute elsewhere in the stones of your mind,

Yeah we’re playing those mind games forever,

Projecting our images in space and in time,
Yes is the answer and you know that for sure,
Yes is the surrender you got to let it, you got to let it go,

So keep on playing those mind games together,

Doing the ritual dance in the sun,
Millions of mind guerrillas,
Putting their soul power to the karmic wheel,

Keep on playing those mind games forever,

Raising the spirit of peace and love, not war,
(I want you to make love, not war, I know you’ve heard it before)

– John Lennon

But I’m Still, I’m Still An Animal

Posted in animals, art, artists, beauty, health, life, love, photography, relationships, spirituality, yoga by the consummate on October 16, 2009

Aminal – Miike Snow

There was a time when my world was filled with darkness, darkness darkness.
Then I stopped dreaming, now i’m supposed to fill it up with something, something, something.

In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody I knew before, long long, long ago.
But I’m still trying to make my mind up, am I free or am I tied up?

I change shapes just to hide in this place, but I’m still, I’m still an animal.
Nobody knows it but me when I slip, yeah I slip, I’m still an animal.

There is a hole and I tried to fill it up with money, money, money.
But it gets bigger to your hopes, it’s always running, running, running.

In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody who could be so, tell me if i’m wrong.
Now i’m pulling your disguise up. Are you free or are you tied up?

I change shapes just to hide in this place, but I’m still, I’m still an animal.
Nobody knows it but me when I slip, yeah I slip, I’m still an animal.

I’ve Found A New Religion

Posted in art, artists, california, health, life, music, neighborhood, san francisco, spirituality, yoga by the consummate on October 15, 2009

i’ve found a new religion
every morn a new mantra
it’s not that now i don’t believe
everything i’m told or read
overheard and over said
i’m just not listening

try to change the weather
like time magazine
did you read?
chairman mao is a robber baron now
rolling over in his grave

i’ve found a new religion
every day (every day)
i’ve found a new religion
every day

i’ve got a new image
got a new outlook
and it’s decidedly sexy
but then again i can’t be satisfied
and broken hearts are counterrevolutionary

are you feeling cooped up
like allende?
see i ain’t
gonna pull my hair out anymore
for a new cold war

i’ve found a new religion
every day (every day)

i’ve found a new religion
every day (every day)

A Great Elephant In The Deep Forest

Posted in animals, art, beauty, health, life, love, photography, relationships, spirituality by the consummate on October 14, 2009

Photo by Nick Brandt

I love this quote. I find it to be so serene and noble. And for a while I used this as a mantra to mend a broken heart.

But if you do not find an intelligent companion, a wise and well-behaved person going the same way as yourself, then go on your way alone, like a king abandoning a conquered kingdom, or like a great elephant in the deep forest. – Buddha

Let’s Go To Pluto

When I was a young girl I thought I’d lose my virginity to Robert Smith and become his sidekick like Siouxsie (both pictured above). It didn’t happen and I’m ok with it.

I thought we’d go to Pluto…

Only Being

Posted in health, life, love, spirituality, yoga by the consummate on October 5, 2009

There are moments when one feels free from one’s own identification with human limitations and inadequacies. At such moments one imagines that one stands on some spot of a small planet, gazing in amazement at the cold yet profoundly moving beauty of the eternal, the unfathomable; life and death flow into one, and there is neither evolution nor destiny; only Being. – Albert Einstein

Scaling

Posted in health, life, love, relationships, spirituality, yoga by the consummate on October 4, 2009

When our mind just cannot let go of the worries of the day, in business, family or life in general and we are disturbed by negative thoughts, the technique of Pratipaksha Bhavanam in Sutra’s 2.33 and 2.34, states opposite or positive ones should be thought of.  This control helps to obstruct those thoughts we do not want. If a thought of hatred comes up about something, or someone, or in relation to a responsibility you need to take care of, consciously you bring up a thought of love, or at the very least removing yourself from the environment.  Create a safe space or positive atmosphere by reading something inspiring, or being with people we love or are special to us. (via Common Ground Yoga)
