  • With EDITION two: ALTRUISM for #winter2020 we want to put the spotlight on the fact that everyone can be in the need of help at some point. How would you like to be treated in this scenario? We believe that treating others as you would like to be treated is the only way for a future in #unity .
▪️
A certain percentage of the entire proceeds from selling the ALTRUISM #collection will be donated to @stelp_supporter_on_site . „STELP e. V. – supporter on site" supports where help is needed most. 
Managing projects on the Philippines, in Turkey, Greece, Bosnia and the Yemen, STELP was founded in order to help people live a self-determined life in #dignity and #peace while enabling them to sustainably create their own #future . They do not spend any donations for internal acquisitions and their aim is to combat the causes for flight and migration on site. ▪️

  • Keep working your light. Keep tuning into your heart. This is your preparation. This is your initiation. Don’t give up. ✨

If you’re feeling any resistance or discomfort, lean into it. Meet it. Sit with it. Make friends with it. Dance with it. Breathe it in. Move it out. And transmute it. ✨

Healing is your highest calling. 
Healing is your highest calling. 
Healing is your highest calling. ✨

Healing is your highest calling because you were called to heal. To break chains. To radiate light from the very core and essence of your being. And with that light, you’ll change the world. ✨

Keep leaning in. Keep doing the work. Keep tuning in to your one wild heart with honor. With trust. With grace. With love. Keep your heart cracked wildly open and let its vibrational frequency radiate and move mountains. Because it already is. ✨

Keep working your light. You were made for this. You were sent here for this. For such a time as this. And the time is now.

  • Selfishness is not what today it's trending to call. What is called "positive" selfishness is the lie and obfuscation. The very meaning of the word "selfishness" confronts with the word "positive" that excludes the whole meaning of every virtue out of the word "selfishness".
Yes, sometimes we choose to our self priority and it is not bad, when it's explained by rational reasons. This is why in the fire we can first put a mask on ourselves to save somebody, who cannot save himself by his own. And it's called rationalism. This act has the name already and it is not selfishness. But some people want us to think that this kind of action is related with selfishness. It is clearly not.
This is definitely substition of concepts. "There is no rationalism, but only positive selfishness".
Just imagine any kind of blood-war. War is the most terrible thing ever existed in the human civilization. But sometimes it is the only way to save the culture and the whole face of nation. A lot of people sacrifice their lives for others to live on and be born. This is the virtue, called altruism, related with rationalism for saving the nation. This is the main enemy of selfishness. Even "positive" selfishness, because it's related with this whole behavior. And now come to think that today we are learning that we must be selfish "in the good way", now there is now rationalism - selfishness is on its turn. "Positive selfishness is the necessity to be happy". So, the picture is like nobody will stay for his nation and culture to survive. "I can save my life and maybe survive so I can make something bigger than stoping a little group of enemies". If people were fighting for the happiness, that some theorists are talking about, then at least Hitler would achieved success if we could survive till those days.
Unfortunately war is the most available thing to think about the problem of selfishness so don't judge me.
I'm crying out for people to stop this mess. And if someone likes to be selfish, please, don't use the word don't call your selfishness positive, because it's not. Just be honest with yourself.

  • Существует ли альтруизм🤷🏻‍♀️?
.
Бескорыстные, самоотверженные поступки😇, в основе которых лежат интересы других, всегда противопоставлялись эгоизму. Но так ли альтруизм лишен стремления удовлетворить собственные интересы, как мы привыкли считать🧐? Давайте разберем, что человек может получить в результате доброго поступка:

1. Положительные эмоции, удовлетворение, радость.
2. Благодарность со стороны того, ради кого данный поступок совершался.
3. Повышение самооценки, самоутверждение.
4. Улучшение имиджа и значимости в глазах других людей.
5. Заглаживание вины тоже очень актуально.

Но даже несмотря на объективное восприятие мотивов поступков людей, давайте будем благодарны всем, кто несёт добро❤️в нашу жизнь, и простительны к толике "неблаговидности" в причинах их небезразличия.

  • Today's message from source an aquarian tarot appears to us as a four of swords and rest & relaxation is definitely the vibe. This card highlights a time to retreat from the chaos & stress of the world , if we've been experiencing any difficulties or setbacks,  take a tick to reflect on the issues at hand. We are gonna need this time to revitalize an recuperate in order to face an/or resolve any potential challenges that may pop up. This pause can offer us a fresh perspective & allow us to process the experience without feeling pressured or rushed.  Give ourselves this time to recover & prepare mentally for the journey ahead. After this ,you may feel clearer about how things are gonna unfold,  once we have a better sense of how to use our energies.  A wonderful time for introspection and self exploration. ❤🧡💛💚💙💜🤎🖤🤍❤🧡💛💚💙

  • Please remember that whether your studies and practice are effective or not depends on how much you actually integrate them into your life. At all times, try to watch your own mind to see how much your thoughts and conduct are in accord with the teachings. It's very easy to notice someone else's faults and criticize their practice, but instead you should turn your attention to your own thoughts and behavior. It is very important to watch your own mind and check how much you really apply the practice-just look at how many emotions come up in the span of a few seconds! We constantly get caried away with worldly activities and distractions, spending time with our family and friends and working at our jobs; all this exhausts us and takes up our time, so we end up neglecting our Dharma practice. We tend to make the less important concerns the most important in our life, but the most important thing in this world is to practice Dharma until we attain ultimate enlightenment, isn't it? Having food and clothing is a short-term necessity for this life, but we get so involved in our attachment to these things that we squander what little time we do have. We consider trivial matters more important than our Dharma practice, but when death comes, only practice will be of any benefit. ~Penor Rinpoche🙏

  • African grey parrots are not only really smart, they are helpful too. They are the first bird species to pass a test that requires them both to understand when another animal needs help and to actually give assistance.⁠
⁠
First the birds were taught that they can exchange them for food by passing them to a researcher through a small hole in a clear screen. A month later, two birds were separated from each other and the researcher by clear screens. One bird was given a pile of tokens but the hole between it and the researcher was blocked.⁠
⁠
The other bird’s hole to the researcher was open but it had no tokens. There was a third hole in the screen between the two birds, allowing them to pass objects through, as shown above.⁠
Seven out of eight African grey parrots passed tokens through this third hole to birds without tokens, so those birds could swap them for food. They passed more tokens when the other bird was one they spend lots of time with – a “friend” – but still did it for birds they spend little time with.⁠
⁠
Besides humans, only bonobos and orangutans have passed this test, which requires both intelligence and helpfulness.⁠

  • I was listening to a podcast yesterday with @drmarkhyman who is a medical doctor with a background in Buddhism. He said that studies show altruism (helping others) stimulates the same serotonin and dopamine receptors as junk food, stimulants and narcotics. And I wonder, if people with addictions went from focusing on self medicating to focusing on selfless service to others what would happen? Would it help?
And It’s now that a lot of people are starting to give to causes beyond their life to people far away and not only are they helping others but also themselves! It then has a trickle down effect by also positively impacting their social circle and also the planet!
One small act by many individuals makes a HUGE difference. 
Please friends, if you aren’t sure what to do about the disasters in Australia, anything helps. Repost information, tag charities to support and increase their reach to the world, talk about it and sign petitions about coal mining, water stealing and climate action! 
It all makes a difference. So let’s make this next vote count!

  • When you take care of yourself, you have more to offer others, writes psychologist Rick Hanson, Ph.D. “Studies show that as people experience greater well-being, they are usually more inclined toward kindness, patience, and altruism.” But how can we learn to give more to ourselves?

These gifts don’t have to be objects. “Gifting yourself comes in many forms, most them in small moments in everyday life,” Hanson writes. “For example, as I write this, the gift is to lean back from the keyboard, take a breath, look out the window, and relax. It’s a do-able gift.  Not doing can also be an important gift to yourself: Not having that third beer, not staying up late watching TV, not rushing while you drive.” #generosity #selfcare #altruism #wellbeing #giving #kindness
