Introducing :

Eudaimonia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eudaimonia

(via Goodreads:)

“as architect of choosing…
choose. to. live.
awakened. entirely. wholly.

wildly powerful,
deeply masterful,
authentically creative,
thriving.
this is not a hoped-for possible self.
[reminder: this is an immutable Law of your being]

needing not to learn the skill of being whole,
the antidote is to unlearn the habit of living incompletely

here’s the practice:

‘know thyself‘—its about spirit
righteousness is underrated
elevate connection with the changeless essence
seek similitude with the will of Source and will of self

‘choose thyself’—its about substance
sacred. sagacious. spacious.
in thought, word and deed—
intend to: honor virtue. innovate enthusiastically. master integrity.

‘become who you are’—its about style
a human, being an entrepreneur of life experiences
a human, being a purveyor of preferences
being-well with the known experience of soul, in service

your relationship with insecurities, contradictions, & failures?
obstacles or…invitations to grow?
[mindset forms manifestation]
emotions are messengers are gifts
data for discernment: dare to deconstruct them your fears

a belief renovation: fear.less.
& aspire towards ascendance, anyway
support your shine
lean into the Light

be.come.

incandescent

as architect of choosing, I choose…
to disrupt the energy of the status quo,
to eclipse the realms of ordinary,
& to live–a life-well lived.
w/ spirit, substance & style.”
LaShaun Middlebrooks Collier

***********ONGOING LIST**********

Want to add to this healthy (simple) solution list? Please message me or simply comment below! ❤

  1. Coconut oil (Antibacterial, antiviral (ingest), antifungal (topical). Moisturizer, makeup component. Healthiest cooking oil!!!
  2. 1/2 Teas Sodium Bicarbonate (simple baking soda) in 8oz filtered water (H20).  Quick, amazing alkalizer.  Chases colds away. Chases indigestion away. Miracle worker.  Try it.  Research it.  Can be done a few times daily!  I’ve seen it change lives.
  3. Water (if possible, no ice), filtered, In most cases “from the tap” water ~ is as fine to drink as any bottled water. Buy yourself a cute, fun, simple, sassy, “feel-good” **Water Bottle** that you like / love.
  4. The “aesthetically pleasing”, comfortable fit of a water bottle you love drinking from will remind you to refill and sip often. The “nice-to-drink-from” bottle encourages hydration more than you may believe at this moment. This can honestly change your life.  It becomes an easy-going reminder to drink your H20, when you have your cool bottle that you dig. Keep it with you! Make it a habit! Handier than you may have imagined, to feel tons better and let the body do its natural healing work. Hydration is one of the easiest ways to improve well-being & overall health.
  5. Sound too simple? It is. So simple that people oft negate or dismiss it. Buy a snazzy water bottle you love. A safe non-leaching plastic only, *Glass or Stainless steel* preferred.  Be willing to spend 20-25 bucks at reputable health food store or some place of the like.  Fun!  That’s your assignment.  I’ll quit my lecture on water… for now.
  6. Feel better.  Lubricate. Healthy organ function. Hydrate.  We are mostly water.
  7. H20 is often an easy cure for headache.

That’s how the light gets in…

The birds they sing

at the break of day

Start again

I heard them say

Don’t dwell on what
has passed away
or what is yet to be.
Ah the wars they will
be fought again
The holy dove
She will be caught again
bought and sold
and bought again
the dove is never free.Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.

We asked for signs
the signs were sent:
the birth betrayed
the marriage spent
Yeah the widowhood
of every government —
signs for all to see.

I can’t run no more
with that lawless crowd
while the killers in high places
say their prayers out loud.
But they’ve summoned, they’ve summoned up
a thundercloud
and they’re going to hear from me.

Ring the bells that still can ring …

You can add up the parts
but you won’t have the sum
You can strike up the march,
there is no drum
Every heart, every heart
to love will come
but like a refugee.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
That’s how the light gets in.
That’s how the light gets in.

“Anthem”  by Leonard Cohen
