Empty your cup
In the Zen tradition there is a concept called shoshin, or “beginner’s mind“. It suggests that we should come to every situation with an empty cup, ready to receive. If our cup is full, then we have no place to put what is coming to us. Emptying our cup, we release our expectation and our sense of “knowing” allowing us to see what it is directly in front of us. This sensibility helps us remove our tendency to interject our ego into a situation, and also deflects our tendency to interject control…… As a tea blender I blend during the full moon however during eclipses I pause and meditate! It renews my energy as well as gives me clarity!
Many Blessings to you all#teacoup #ayurvedicteaologist #fullmoon #zen#meditate#eclipse #energy#quote
This Vedic routine is a beautiful way to start each morning, adding to the benefits of meditation and making you feel fresh, connected and full of creativity for the day. Do what you can fit into your current schedule, starting piece by piece till it becomes a habit. Radical change can cause more…
Up close inside Chile’s watery Marble Cathedral
Instagrammers from around the world trek to Catedral de Marmol, or the “Marble Cathedral,” on Chile’s General Lake Carrera to photograph the dazzling series of water-filled caves and tunnels. The unique rock structures were formed by over 6,000 years of waves crashing against the Patagonian Andes, and geologists attribute the water’s intense blue to the presence of finely ground glacial silt. The Marble Cathedral can be explored by boat or kayak, allowing adventurers to get an up-close look.
Though beautiful, the Catedrales de Marmol are not easy to reach. Adventurers must fly 1287 kilometers (800 miles) from Santiago to the city of Coyhaique, and brave an additional 322 kilometers (200 miles) of dirt roads to reach General Lake Carrera.
