understanding

There is a light in all of us. Often we walk this journey of growth and love believing its a linear, clear path, but growth is never linear. Even nature doesn’t grow or move in one direction. The tides change; the water becomes deeper or more shallow. The trees grow towards the sun but their branches and roots reach in all directions. The sun bounces off, creating a spectrum of many colors and opposing shadows. Our understanding is our perspective, and our perspective is our understanding. Growth is experiencing all the ripples along the way. In this picture I took today during golden hour, I noticed that the light seemed like a clear path to the sun. However, the ripples allowed some darkness and the tide pulled me away. I meditated with that thought and that perspective. Growth is sometimes swimming against the tide, sometimes it’s getting over those ripples and the shadows or darkness to reach a better understanding or perspective. Growth might not always be easy but it’s better than staying on the shore, afraid of the ripples and the shadows along the way. Today, I reflect with my path as the sun reflects in this picture. The yin and yang of life. I will always honor my light but I will also honor the darkness because it makes our light that much brighter. • • • #yinyang #duality #growth #perspective #understanding #light #darkness #honor #understanding #love #redondobeach #nature #sunshine #happiness #fridaynight #photography #writing

Life is full of choices - You may pick something you like, but once you bite into it, the taste of realization may be entire different from what you thought. Variety is an absolute paradox. That’s when our senses and truth comes to play to decide that you can view everything to be pretty and peachy, but inside a hidden poison. #goals #choices #decisions #sacrifices #understanding #options #grayarea #paradox #gatos #movingforward #handsoftime #overqualified #appreciationgoesalongway

I will not #seek your agreement. I am in no need of your #admiration or acknowledgement. I will not justify #myself to gain your #understanding or validation. I will not bend myself a #hundred different ways so you can approve of me. I will not offer you an explanation to feed your comfort. I dont need you to understand me or even like me. I will not battle you for my #selfworth You will never have a say in that. My #power stays with me. ~Emily Maroutian @emaroutian 💜 #cosmicdancer

Everybody's a book you've never read before. Made of similar parts front and back, but the pages in between are completely different. Understanding this is key to maximizing all your own endeavors and interactions with the world. It's the only way to get the whole picture. #embracelife #gainwisdom #attaingreatness #workwithpurpose #understanding #knowledge #vision #clarity #openmind #awareness #differencesmakeus #weredifferent #embraceit #learnfromit #read

Repost from @perceptiongoddess Everyone has a calling and none of those callings are the same; may be the same field but never the same purpose. Live the life that’s meant for you, because only you can serve your purpose. #Balance #PositiveVibes #YinYang #Perception #Intuition #Spirituality #Consciousness #Faith #NewBeginnings #God #Creator #Goddess #Vegas #Phats #Understanding #Love #SpiritualJourney #BestLife #Energy #HigherSelf #Acceptance #ThirdEye #Universe
