All the strength inside me that it takes not to bring this home with me for @studiotula (if it wasn’t for the 💵 she’d be there already). I saw her a few days ago at a pop up shop selling the kind of Chinese wares you’d most typically see in NZ fish and chips shops.. and this. The thousand helping hands of Guan Yin, the female Bodhisattva of mercy and compassion.
Her quality is an inspiration to me. With her thousand eyes to perceive the hearts of all beings, and her thousand hands to reach out and serve. For now I hope to learn the Buddhist mantra of Quan Shih Yin and in this way embody her essence a little more, and welcome her qualities of compassion and service into the temple of my heart, and Tula🌳
When you allow external sources to dictate what everything means for you, or 'what is the truth', you are giving your power away as a creator. By allowing other people's beliefs to become yours just because 'it sounds nice', you are renouncing your sovereignty. You are to create your own perception and beliefs, because whatever you believe becomes your reality. Perceive and live life on your own terms, not someone else's.
We only have a few spots left for our #fullmoon workshop. Join us to seize the energy of the full moon and breakthrough the obstacles. The Full Moon is an extremely auspicious day for spiritual practices. Come and release all that is stuck and negative and renew with positive light radiating freely from within. Happiness is your birthright! .
Next celebration is Oct 23rd. Tap the link in our profile for more information and to sign up.
