We experience numerous disappointments each and every day. Our expectations go unmet, our plans are blocked by circumstance, our wishes go unfulfilled, and we discover that our lives are subject to a myriad of forces beyond our conscious control. In some cases, our response is powerful because we must invest ourselves and our resources to overcome genuine hardship. In others, our reactions are far more passionate than our circumstances likely warrant. The tension that permeates our bodies and minds when we are late for an event, interrupted at work, or sitting in traffic is not inappropriate, but it can interfere with our well-being in profound ways. When we stop worrying about relatively unimportant matters, we can be at peace and devote so much more of ourselves to what is truly important.

Square or Circle? ㅤ It's all about perspective. ㅤ "The sphere is the positive centering sun. The cube is the invisible surrounding wave field. All matter is thus divided into positive solids surrounded by negative space." - Walter Russell ㅤ In the Secret of Light, Dr. Russell describes the sphere / cube as follows: ㅤ "The sphere and the cube both manifest the cosmic principle of balance. Their position in light waves is in the one balanced position in the wave where compression and expansion have ceased to oppose each other, which is at wave amplitude (known as trough or crest). Carbon and sodium chloride are good examples of true cube crystallization. ㅤ Likewise their atomic units are true spheres. Sodium-iodide or sodium-bromide do not crystallize in true cube because of their unbalanced positions near, but not upon, the plane of wave amplitude." ㅤ "The cube and sphere are one, being two opposite phases of the same thing. The cube is the sphere extended to black coldness while the sphere is the cube contracted to white incandescence. Every true sphere in every light wave is an incandescent sun, regardless of its dimension. Prolating spheres, such as our sun, are becoming incandescent inward toward their centers, while ablating spheres, such as our planets, are becoming cold inward toward their centers. ㅤ The cube is born from the sphere to produce form by projecting light from incandescence toward the cold dark of the heavens. Conversely, the sphere is born from the cube to fulfill the other desire for oneness by reprojecting cold dark from the heavens to light in the seed. ㅤ The creation of all forms of matter is an eternal interchange between the father-light of incandescent spheres and the mother-light of cold cubes. All forms are born in the direction of the coldness of space and are voided in the direction of incandescence." ㅤ #perspective#cube#sphere#geometry#sacredgeometry#light#electricity#magnetism#cubicwavefield#science
Anyone else struggle with feeling “needed“? As a woman, I assume I’m obliged to enjoy, even crave, being needed by others. But this definitely doesn’t come naturally to me...as in, I don’t like it. It’s like I have a female ‘chip’ missing, and I sometimes feel deficient / inadequate as a result. Do some of y’all relate to this? If so, tips for working through it or just plain accepting it?
#tbt to Space Shuttle Endeavor 🚀 leaving our atmosphere and heading to space, captured by @NASA shuttle training aircraft. #intothestars We have some amazing news! We are going to @NASA in 2 weeks. We are going to be covering the test launch of @boeing ‘s 1st Starliner spacecraft. Stay tuned. www.spaceforhumanity.org Btw, Isn't it amazing to be reminded of how tiny we are when compared to the cosmos. Vía @nasa #spaceforhumanity
I saw a post the other day that was like “text this number with your sign and get a free astrology reading!” And like the tech-witch that I am, I did and received this reading for Gemini: “Personal growth may have been on your mind the past few weeks. Give it a rest. You’ll need to save your strength to evaluate whether you really like the holidays or just hate being happy.” And at first I was like WOW drag me but I read it again and felt the crushing weight of the truth inside of that statement. I can be such a pessimist and I’ve never really been able to tell whether that’s my nature or my nurture. I refuse to believe that anyone would be set out on this journey with pessimism in their bones so I’m choosing to believe that it’s nurture. Which in a way breaks my heart, especially in conjunction with the holidays, where my mind is frantically trying to grapple with the fact that no matter how many times I talk myself up or make myself vulnerable and open, a healthy and inclusive relationship with my blood family will never exist. I’ve done the work, the therapy and the reframing of perspectives, all the evolving and shifting one could do, and still nothing. And I guess the question I ask myself is why tf do I keep trying?...(continued in comments) — 📷 @rickdaynyc for @directionsusa
Many psychological symptoms “derive their power from insinuating themselves into a person’s world and sense of self, posing as protectors, defenders, or allies,” writes psychologist Noam Shpancer, Ph.D., at Psychology Today. “For example, people who deal with social anxiety believe strongly that their anxiety is their protector—from judgment, from ridicule and rejection. People with OCD believe that their compulsive cleaning or checking behaviors are protective, saving them from harm, or at least from the grave discomfort of feeling unsafe.” Challenging such assumptions is an important part of therapy, Shpancer says. “If change is to occur, old habits, relationships and beliefs will need to be changed, reshaped, or altogether abandoned, and new ones will have to be embraced.“#psychologytoday #psychology #socialanxiety #anxiety #OCD #mentalhealth #therapy #mentalhealthmatters #judgment #fear #perspective #change
