When the Buddha, at age 29, left his palace life to seek liberation, he spent most of his remaining fifty – one years living in the forests, woodlands, and parks of Northern India. These natural settings were the incubator for both his awakening and his teaching. The important connection he saw between nature and the practices he taught is encapsulated in his emphatic instruction to meditate in the forest at the foot of a tree. He claimed that as long as his followers practice in the forest the path of liberation would not decline. The Buddha’s great Awakening, or bodhi, at the age of 35 occurred as he sat meditating outdoors under a tree, protected by its canopy. One legend explains that after his Awakening he spent seven days gazing in gratitude at the tree that sheltered him in his final quest for liberation. The tree — known scientifically as Ficus religiosa — is held up as the living symbol of the Buddha’s Awakening and represents the important connection between Buddhism and the natural world.
The Buddha chose to die in a quiet forested area. His lying down to die peacefully and mindfully between two trees is a powerful image of living (and dying) in harmony with the natural world. In Buddhism nature is not seen as an adversary; it is our partner for liv ing at peace. In between his Awakening and his death, the natural world was ubiquitous in the Buddha’s life and teachings. Forests and woodland parks were the most common setting in which people met the Buddha and heard his teachings. As such, nature provided the backdrop and unspoken context for his teachings and how people heard them.
Nature can also be an effective teacher. In particular it can provide lessons in the impermanence of life; just as change is inherent in nature, so we can expect we will change. Being in nature can also teach us the importance of living in harmony with nature. ✨Source: www.insightmeditationcenter.org/ ; Author: Gil Fronsdal 🦋Art by @suzannegayleart 🙏🧘🏽♂️💐

Cada pedra uma intensão, uma energia uma vibração. Vocês gostam de cristais? .
A partir de hoje teremos uma serie de videos sobre cristais fixos no Stories e para inaugurar esse "quadro" em nosso instagram e minha paixão sobre as pedras eu postei essa imagem linda de uma dia de energização do meu diário magico. Montei esse diário ano passado, pintei, fiz a mandala em cima das minhas intenções para ele e sempre que acho necessário coloco minhas pedras e energizo ele com o Reiki também. Você tem um diário ou isso é mania só de pisciana? .
Eu sei que avida é corrida e que você quase não tem tempo pra nada!
É bem provável que toda essa correria e loucura do dia a dia, te deixa com a MENTE AGITADA!🤦♀️ Essa mente agitada deixa você preocupada, ansiosa, inquieta...😱 Então quando se perceber nesse estado alterado de preocupação e ansiedade, se permita dar uma pausa no seu dia para prestar atenção na sua respiração!🙏 Não estou falando pra você deixar um espaço reservado na sua agenda para meditar, estou falando pra você, que após terminar de ler esse post, permita-se deixar o celular de lado, fechar os olhos e trazer a sua atenção para a RESPIRAÇÃO!
Respire profundamente pelo nariz, levando o ar para o abdômen. Permaneça uns minutinhos, depois abra os olhos, e observe os benefícios dessa prática!
E depois me conta como foi a sua prática nos comentários!😁👇 #meditartransforma#meditanessavida
This my 9-yeqr-old, the “little” one in the family. You see her as she is enjoying her second homemade (by her) açaí breakfast bowl, and she is loving it! Don’t take me wrong though, she didn’t want to have anything to do with açaí bowls for as long as I have been eating them. She always refused to eat them, sticking to her breakfast staples and telling me that she didn’t like them. Then on yesterday, as I was preparing mine, she asked if she could make one too! 🎉 Of course I said yes and she worked on it with a passion, looking for things she could add to her bowl and asking questions about food pairing and healthy choices. Today, she made another one... 👏🏼👏🏼
The reason I am telling you this, is that as parents, I believe we are pretty much all they see and what they believe is the right way in life. Eventually, kids will mimic us, so it is our duty to open their mind and make sure they embrace the best in life. My oldest child was always easy to feed and ate everything I was giving her (she still does) The youngest one (pictured) was not as easy, but we always followed some “guidelines” when it came to food and eating habits, and they always eventually paid off (açaí bowl is an example). Here is what we did and still do:
🌱 there is no age discrimination in our house when it comes to food, no “adult” food or “kids” food. There is only food. So if the flavors are strong or spicy, it doesn’t matter, you are allowed to eat anything, and if you don’t like it, that’s totally fine too, you can skip it, but not before trying.
🌱 we cook one meal for the whole family, not something different for each member.
🌱 we try to cook together, and we enjoy every step. We chop, we sauté, we smell and taste the ingredients, we bake, etc... we try to make everything from scratch and use processed food as little as we can. We minimize waste too by eating leftovers
🌱 we try any food from any ethnicity and we love it! We have to since we travel so much!
🌱 if we don’t like something, we will try again another time. We know there are some acquired tastes so we will give it another shot later...
