Ive had that conflict you wrote about (the having no desires but needing them to achieve simple every day things). ITS HARD! Like you said, what will be will be but does that mean we can strive for something more? I hate my job, and while im learning to accept it for what it is with Buddhism, I dont think Buddha would tell us NOT to strive for me...he'd probably say just be happy, live in a now....But its very hard:(
ok first I wanna say that you’re the first person to ever comment on something i’ve written!! That makes me so happy!!! :D
And Im glad you understand what Im going through. Im in the process of job hunting and switching schools but i feel like i could be doing so much more than the mundane everyday get a job, get a house, get a spouse, then die’ routine. I want to travel, volunteer, meet new people, but i don’t want to disappoint myself if i can’t achieve those things. :(
Im considering going on a detox for a few days. My mood and my face have been feeling somewhat off lately… also alot of other things have been on my mind.
It’s hard to plan for the future and be bhuddist about it as well. On one hand you want to look forward in the future and make sure everything goes as well as planned (which they never do in the long run smh -__-) but on the other hand Bhudda teaches us never to be enthralled by earthly desires. Do these desires include jobs and college degrees? Bhudda teaches us what will be will be if it is meant to be, but I NEED it to be a certain way to plan out my life. But Bhudda says never to NEED anything. I can understand that since if you need something, and you don’t get it, your disappointed. Suffering and strife sets in. Its confusing….To find the middle way is to know balance…but should i be so indifferent towards my future? I wish i was meant to spend my days in a temple meditating on my place in the universe, but things aren’t like that in america. I wish i could run away to a far off country…
In all honesty, although I do indeed go to yoga classes and practice from yoga videos, the best sequence of yoga I feel is the type you come up with on the spot, during your moving meditation. You decide when you need a back bend, hip opener or what have you. When I focus on my body and move myself into positions its asking for, thats when i feel the most benefitted and the most heat created within myself. I also tend to do it for way longer :D Like an hour and a half long! woot woot
Hello! This is a brand new post i made specifically for health and yoga practice. I’m very much a beginner yogi but I have been practicing for a few years now. But i still can’t do any cool aerial stuff :p So i’d like it if I can get feedback, comments, encouragements, and criticisms about the ways of spirituality, yoga and an all around healthy life style. :) I will be posting yoga sequences, nutritional stuffs as well as spiritual stuffs. So i hope I can make some friends on this tumblr so we can learn to grow together with yoga as our guide :)
