Time ❄ "Thus you can throw yourself flat on the ground, stretched out upon Mother Earth, with the certain conviction that you are one with her and she with you. You are as firmly established, as invulnerable as she, indeed a thousand times firmer and more invulnerable. As surely she will engulf you tomorrow, so surely will she bring you forth anew to new striving and suffering. And not merely 'some day': now, today, every day she is bringing you forth, not once but thousands upon thousands of times, just as every day she engulfs you a thousand times over. For eternally and always there is only now, one and the same now; the present is the only thing that has no end." -Erwin Schrodinger, excerpt from My View of the World

my eyes heavy
staring at you
I'm reminded of innocence and purity
Your soul is so clean
it mind as well be empty
Although I know that's just what you are showing me
Deep inside you are hiding from the grime in which you used to reside
Your shallow front is admirable
But your deep scars are not consolable
I can attest to the feeling of solitude
When you lock the outside from your frame of mind
You can finally feel comfortable in your own skin
Until you decide to climb out and unleash havoc once again
Many people's bodies are nutritionally deprived and they wonder why they have this insatiable appetite that they cannot seem to satisfy. People eat dead, processed foods which contain no nutritional value and are essentially empty calories. Diets low in fruit and vegetables have a strong negative health impact. Your gut microbes play a crucial role in the health and wellbeing of not only your gut, but your whole body. The body's gut microbes are heavily connected with the control of the immune system, which in turn controls inflammation. Eating processed foods can cause the good bacteria in your gut to be pushed out -- leaving you more exposed to the bad ones. The good bacteria don't survive as well. Unhealthy weight gain is one of the dangers associated with eating too much, but gaining weight isn't the only physical complaint you're likely to experience if you overeat on a regular basis. These unhealthy foods can also cause uncomfortable digestive problems such as bloating and gas. Overeating can also lead to bone and joint pain. Chronic overeating can impact mental health. A large portion of your self-image and self-esteem is connected to how you feel about your looks. The adult human body is made up of about 60-90 trillion cells! What we eat becomes the cell structure of our bodies, and the cell structure determines our physical—healthy and unhealthy—nature. If we eat unhealthy foods, we generate unhealthy and toxic cells, which means that our bodies become unhealthy and toxic. As we age, our cells die because our mitochondria fail to produce adequate energy molecules. Aging mitochondria are not only less efficient at converting fuel to energy, they can actually produce harmful oxidants. A major factor in the age-related decline of bodily functions is the accumulation of “oxidative damage” in the body’s proteins, fats, and DNA. Oxidants—in particular, chemicals called “free radicals”—are produced when food is converted to energy by mitochondria. This is why we get less energetic and lose vitality as we age. So, it is a key to have and maintain a good amount of healthy mitochondria in your cells for slowing down the aging process. #Consciousvibrancy

Existence flows past us like a river: the “what” is in constant flux, the “why” has a thousand variations. Nothing is stable, not even what’s right here. The infinity of past and future gapes before us—a chasm whose depths we cannot see. #love#my#routine
MOST INTENSE PSYCHEDELIC EXPERIENCE 👁The day my sophomore year of high school ended I ate between 25-30 Morning Glory seeds, combined with about a gram of some not so great MDMA. I had never tried anything containing LSA and my buddy hadn't either so we just ate the seeds frantically. He started getting terribly sick after eating the seeds so the beginning of the trip was spent trying to take care of my friend. After his stomach settled we started to listen to music and talk about conspiracy theories. At around 3 in the morning he decided it was time to head home, and this is when I think the molly wore off but the LSA was far from over. To be completely honest the next day of hallucinating was pretty traumatic and I can only give vivid details of the night before I went insane. 🤦♂️ be careful with entheogens they will kick your ass if you don't respect them. Feel free to share your stories as a comment or if it's a little to crazy DM me and we can talk about crazy trips. Since then I've never taken anything containing LSA again, so I can't really tell you if you should give it a chance. All I can say is do NOT eat 3x the recommended dose. ✌️

It's hard to feel like you make progress when you lift around a bunch of people who lift oh so gracefully. ✨👌🏼😅
For me, nothing perfect, but some things started to click recently, and I found myself recognizing my progress in form the past couple months.
Look at that triple extension on the left. 👀
I still suck though. 😂🤷🏽♂️
Thanks @apesquadweightlifting for calling out the best of my sucky lifts. 😎👍🏼😂

• Volvieron las mariposas azules y revoloteaban al ritmo del piano, que sin dedos humanos que hundieran armónicos las teclas, interpretaba la Contradanza en su compás de 2/4. Las mariposas no provenían del cuerpo del desaparecido Urian Moyra, más bien surgían como un símbolo de libertad, se generaban de maneras espontaneas y diversas, como las flores en primavera, como un paralelismo de masiva floración espiritual...
Se organizaban en espirales nuevamente, y creaban bajo el radiante sol que se derramaba en luz sobre la exedra, un espectáculo fugaz... Alniño entonaba con la potente voz de Ascurcio un cántico en latín -NIHIL NOVUM SUB SOLE- decía, como emulando al Rey Salomón... Quizás habían retomado su cauce las corrientes naturales de los ciclos, el alma de la hermana de Sarpedón presa en una planta viva, en una flor perenne de Mandrágora, habría abandonado su raro calabozo, de seguro despertaría en otro cuerpo de carne y huesos, con un corazón sin estrenar, y una humana realidad por vivir... Alniño comenzó a dar vueltas sobre su propio eje como un "Derviche Sufí", desbocado buscando la conexión entre el constante giro y la mística energía que se desvela en secreto con la llegada de luna llena... Quizás intentaba un rito tribal para encausar el dislocado rumbo de los acontecimientos, fue bajando progresivamente las revoluciones de su giro, y le entonó entonces unos versos plurales, que halagaran tanto a su adorada pianista como al alma en éxodo de la hermana de Sarpedón... Así te bailo, Bonita... | Tribal como rito humano,
| yo Derviche que al son gira,
| tú la órbita de Urano...

I’ve been experimenting with a whole bunch of #SundayRiley products for the past 1-2 months, and so far most of them have been great😍. I’m talking with @sundayriley for a future video collaboration so if you have any questions, leave them below so that I can ask her!🤓📚
👽#UFOoil : Oil blend with #SalicylicAcid 1.5% designed for oily, acne prone skin and no other #BHA products have worked like this oil has! Pore clarity is the first thing I’ve noticed. -
⚡️UFO oil is a blend of mostly dryer, thinner oils that are higher in linoleic acid than oleic acid. This is right up my alley!
⚡️Milk thistle seed oil : Many sensitive skin could benefit from this oil with skin nutritive, protective benefits.
⚡️Black cumin seed oil : Calms inflammation, accelerates healing making it suitable for acne prone skin!
⚡️Cucumber seed oil : This was very new to me but it turns out to be a great oil for strengthening the skin’s lipid barrier, regenerating healthy skin cells!
+ and there are so many more luscious oils!
🌠 #LunaOil : Gentle #retinoid in an oil base AKA my first #retinoid experience!!! And so far, so good with no irritation at all. Dryer skin type would like this oil better.
💫Trans-retinoic acid ester (Hydroxypinacolone retinoate) is considered as the next generation of retinoid, a gentler form or vitamin A. It’s getting a lot of spotlight among skincare brands like #Theordinary#Murad#Philosophy etc!
💫Good amount of vital nutritive, anti-inflammatory ingredients like avocado, chia seed oil, chamomile oil and blue tansy : great anti-redness workers. -
💫I use 1-2 drops for my entire face after serum. Once or twice a week since I’m just starting my retinoid journey. And I do wake up with smoother and more nourished skin. It’s hard to tell if it delivers “transformative” result such as fading old acne scarring but again, this won’t give you the same result that you would get from a prescription tretinoin but it’s a good place to begin your Vitamin A game. (if you’re reaching 30 or above) -
💫Not a fan of dyes, and the scent is a bit overpowering for my liking
