Religious practice and Buddhist principles are a part of daily life for most Tibetans. Monks and nuns play a key role in their communities, providing guidance and education. They are often very active in protecting and promoting Tibet's environment, language and culture.
Almost all Tibetans are deeply devoted to the Dalai Lama and his exile and treatment by the Chinese government are sources of grief and anger.
Tibetans' allegiance to the Dalai Lama and to Tibetan Buddhism is seen as a danger to the occupying Chinese state and, as a result, all aspects of religious practice are closely monitored and controlled.
Simply possessing an image of the Dalai Lama can result in arrest and torture. Monks and nuns are frequently targeted by security restrictions and they make up a significant proportion of political prisoners in Tibet.

#HappyChineseNewYear ! 🧧China’s new year is aligned with the #lunarcalendar 🌑 but for us here in the West let’s take this as an opportunity to have a second moment to appreciate ‘newness’ and new beginnings this month… ✨
The Lotus plant is regarded in many Eastern cultures as a symbol of #purity , #enlightenment , self-regeneration and #rebirth because the Lotus grows in dirty waters 🌱
Experience is neither mind nor anything but mind;
it is a vivid display of emptiness, like magical illusion,
in the very moment inconceivable and unutterable.
All experience arising in the mind,
at its inception, know it as emptiness.

This little special find 😍
Ahhhh so much I learned about the Himalayan Quartz today myself.
This beauty is now available on our Etsy at £14.00☺️🌿🌸🌈
Here’s a little bit more about this beautiful crystal.
🌿Himalayan Quartz helps to establish a strong, clear connection to higher guidance. These stones carry the vibration of the shamanic healers who have lived in the Himalayan mountain regions for centuries. Rather than receiving programming these crystals are teachers. Their extraordinary vibration stimulates the third eye chakra to enhance psychic visionary ability which enables the knowledge of healing lore within these crystals to be accessed. Their energy helps us to better understand the information they impart and use it to carry out healing. Clear Quartz encourages clarity of thought and purpose to one’s heart and mind. It works on all levels of the energetic and physical bodies and resonates with all chakras. Clear Quartz will amplify any energy with which it moves into resonance, including other stones, constantly broadcasting that energy into the Earths electromagnetic field.
🌙 History Behind 🌙
Clear Quartz has been used as a healing tool since the Ancient times. In Shamanic practices it is referred to as the “light-stone”, an instrument of clairvoyance. Clear Quartz was traditionally used by Australian Aborigines and the Prairie Indians of North America as a talisman for visionary work. The Navajo believed it to be Clear Quartz that first caused the Sun to cast its light upon the world. The six sided hexagonal shape of Quartz crystal points allow them to hold a programme or intention, to magnify that energy and radiate it out into the surrounding area.

Phoenix wasn’t just chilling under the warm blanket. He burned through the pain of self-transformation. Butterfly wasn’t born with beautiful wings. She destroyed herself through metamorphosis.
"Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional", said Haruki Murakami.
Our lives aren’t perfect. They mostly consist of daily routines, hustles, ups and down.
Thinking only positive is not a healthy way. Nor is thinking negative. We need both. We need darkness to know the light.
No pain, no gain. Without pain, there is no growth.
So feel your pain, feel it deep and then work through it. Don't avoid it thought escape, don't take the easy way out - through drugs, modern distractions, avoiding it or even with a "help" of fake spirituality that tells you to think only positive thoughts. Embrace all your thoughts, no matter how painful they are. They are yours.
The most painful experiences will show you your deepest treasures. The most painful moments will teach you most beautiful lessons.
New Podcast Alert on The Awake With Jake Show 🎙 Episode #142 : 3 Stages Of Relationships. I hear so many people say “when is the love of my life going to show up?!” My response: “they already have, look within yourself.” When you learn to love and accept yourself, you won’t rely on another person to do so. Sure, your partner can be a loving space but they cannot be the soul reason for your love or happiness. Because what happens when they leave? So does your love and happiness.
I think the one of the main things that I’ve learned over the years is feeling safe. If you don’t feel safe with your partner. If they don’t feel like home. It’s likely they aren’t the best fit for you.
Which stages have you experienced?

Being strong means seeing yourself in the most favorable light you can imagine. Be real, allow yourself to feel genuine emotions, but most of all, be strong.
