Will any authority, any method, any system, tell you how to love?

quote
Nermeen Hassan's insight:
Will any authority, any method, any system, tell you how to love? 

If anyone tells you, it is not love. Can you say, 'I wil practice love. I will sit down day after day and think about it. I will practice being kind and gentle and force myself to pay attention to others? Do you mean to say that you can discipline yourself to love, exercise the will to love? When you exercise discipline and will to love, love goes out of the window. - Krishnamurti, Freedom from the Known,85

Well Sleep helps in avoiding the Sudden Deadly HBP threat ..

Well Sleep helps in avoiding the Sudden Deadly HBP threat .. | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it
Nermeen Hassan's insight:
Cortisol is a steroid hormone has an important role in the way in which the body responds to stress. Too much cortisol in the body can include rapid weight gain, high blood pressure, muscle weakness, and severe mood swings that manifest in anxiety and depression. Too little of cortisol cause problems such as dizziness, fatigue, weight loss and a peculiar darkening in certain skin areas. Stress; short-term or long-term acute plays important role in cortisol level For short-term stressors like an argument or a fall, we will see a brief spike in cortisol. For longer term stressors like work stress or illness, we see a consistently higher level of cortisol at all times of the day. How does all this relate to Adrenal Fatigue? Well, those long-term stressors can eventually deplete the nutrients and precursors that we need to produce cortisol and other hormones. In other words, chronic stress will raise your cortisol levels for a while, but eventually your body is unable to continue producing cortisol in such high amounts. At this point we start to see declines in not only cortisol, but also key hormones and neurotransmitters like aldosterone, testosterone, epinephrine and more. Additionally the diurnal rhythm of cortisol production is often disrupted, resulting in late-evening spikes that cause insomnia. Our Stress management strategy depends on: - Beside strengthening our bodies (physical, physiological and psychological and spiritual levels) we need to keep releasing the symptomatic effect of our daily stress is essential to have a good night sleep which lead to balance the cortisol level, specially in the morning time hence avoiding HBP deadly threat. Health is a process; Participating in our health status helps in keeping our Being in balance.

Never Give Up and Always Let go

Never Give Up and Always Let go | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it
Nermeen Hassan's insight:

Never Give Up and Always Let go

Bedroom or board room, battlefield or play field or even spiritual field; human being is the same, we strive to win a goal or what you think is the ultimate purpose.

Wining contract, games, war, award, fortune, love of life, or even wining ultimate serenity status (Samadhi)

Don’t we always run after a gain? Work hard! work smart!! No matter how hard or smart you will work, believe me you wont reach anything without balancing between these two intense acts and feeling, NEVER GIVE UP and always be ready to LET GO.

Now let’s dig a bit deeper into these two simple sentences to be said and most difficult for some people to practice.

There is a slight difference between being persistence and being stubborn, by never giving up and obstinate. One day 10 years old boy once said “I gave up Emilie- his first girlfriend -but I didn’t Give Up Love.”

 Probably you don’t remember when you started to walk, look at a baby who starts learning walking, how many times he fell, how many ways he tries.

During teens time, in a volleyball team, we started to learn serving and/or shooting, to overcome arms limitation our coach started to strengthening the non-dominated arm, left and right, augmenting the jumping faculty, and different techniques to launch the ball. For me, it wasn’t an easy ride like other ready-built teammates who didn’t need any of these tough training programs; but at the end letting go the concept of physical strength is the solution, and never giving up different other tools made me the only player in the team could use both left and right arm which is so tricky to the opponent teams.

Move from sports to education to wealth, or love of life; we need to find our own fortes, weaponries, own paths, working effortlessly, moving progressively with full conviction are our secret formula in reaching what’s our hearts and minds ascertained on.

What do truly authentic people do differently?

What do truly authentic people do differently? | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it
Nermeen Hassan's insight:

What do truly authentic people do differently?

1. They say what’s on their minds and voice their opinions firmly, but not with anger.

2. They choose a career path that they enjoy, not what their parents or friends believe is right for them. They make their choices based on happiness, not money.

3. They don’t fear taking a path in life that not many travel. In fact, they find it most comfortable and exhilarating.

4. They fall in love with themselves before they fall in love with anyone else, and they don’t feel like they need permission to be themselves. They wouldn’t want to be anyone else.

5. They do things their own way when it works for them. They don’t bend to societal pressure, but if society has the right way of doing something, they’re happy to go along. They’re authentic, not religious rebels.

6. They don’t take it personally. Negative comments and criticism aren’t taken to heart for authentic people. It’s not that they don’t care what you think, but they care what they think of themselves more. Constructive criticism is always welcome, but they know the difference between constructive criticism and people trying to tear them down.

7. They want friends and partners who value deep conversations and a serious emotional connection. No time for sensationalist news or E!-style gossip.

8. They follow their heart. You can follow them and their heart if you want, but don’t expect them to drop it all for you.

9. They don’t want anything bad to happen to anyone and truly hope people thrive in their lives. If it’s what they want for themselves, you can bet they want it for you too.

10. Authentic people see the soul, not the person. Personal appearance doesn’t matter much to them.

An awareness of thinking, and not the thinker

An awareness of thinking, and not the thinker | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it
Nermeen Hassan's insight:

Now, can the mind be aware of itself in action, in movement, without a centre? I think it can. It is possible when there is only an awareness of thinking, and not the thinker who is thinking. You know, it is quite an experience to realize that there is only thinking. And it is very difficult to experience that because the thinker is habitually there, evaluating, judging, condemning, comparing, identifying. If the thinker ceases to identify, evaluate, judge, then there is only thinking, without the centre." - Krishnamurti, The Collected Works, Vol. X,15,Choiceless Awareness

Give up the battle and resistance against the unknown what is offered to us!!!

Give up the battle and resistance against the unknown what is offered to us!!! | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it
Nermeen Hassan's insight:

Let me tell you a story:

"The master  said: There was once a village of beings on the bottom of a large crystal river. The flow of the river rushed soundless above them all - young and old, poor and rich, good and evil the flow followed his own crystal pat. Each being clenching itself in its own way to the plants and stones on the bottom of the river, because clenching was their way of life and going against the stream was taught from birth. Eventually one being said: I am tired clenching myself. If I keep on clenching I will be bored to death. Although I cannot see it I trust the flow knows were it’s going I let go and go with the flow.  The other beings laughed and said: fool! The flow which you honour will drag you over the rocks and will crush you. You will die  more rapidly than boringness disappears!. But the being neglected the advise, and with a little doubt took a deep breath and let go and immediately tumbled over the rocks and was crushed by the stream. The being realised doubt was holding it and released the last doubts of grabbing a rock; this was the way! Suddenly the being was lifted by the stream and wasn’t brused and wounded anymore. The beings downstream surprised by the appearance of the stranger called: ”this is a miracle A being if we ourselves, and it flies! The Messiah has come us save all! 
And the one which followed the flow said: I am neither a Messiah as you are. The river creates pleasure in releasing us as long as we dare to let go. Our real mission is this adventurous journey!  


We are conditioned to hold on to our physical environment which is giving us grip. How many are holding on to relationships and work or situations in our life which does not give us any satisfaction through lack of confidence of better perspective. It takes effort and courage"

Constant Thought Is a Waste of Energy

 

Most of us spend our life in effort, in struggle; and the effort, the struggle, the striving, is a dissipation of that energy. Man, throughout the historical period of man, has said that to find that reality or God- whatever name he may give to it- you must be celibate; that is, you take a vow of chastity and suppress, control, battle with yourself endlessly all your life, to keep your vow. Look at the waste of energy! It is also a waste of energy to indulge. And it has far more significance when you suppress. The effort that has gone into suppression, into control, into this denial of your desire distorts your mind, and through that distortion you have a certain sense of austerity which becomes harsh. Please listen. Observe it in yourself and observe the people around you. And observe this waste of energy, the battle. Not the implications of sex, not the actual act, but the ideals, the images, the pleasure;the constant thought about them is a waste of energy. And most people waste their energy either through denial, or through a vow of chastity, or in thinking about it endlessly. - Krishnamurti, J. Krishnamurti, The Book of Life

What do you do when you are unhappy?

Nermeen Hassan's insight:

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE UNHAPPY?

Sit quietly for a few minutes and become mindful of your breath as it goes in and out. Then contemplate what you do when you’re unhappy or dissatisfied and want to feel better. Even make a list if you want to. Then ask yourself: Does it work? Has it ever worked? Does it soothe the pain? Does it escalate the pain? If you’re really honest, you’ll come up with some pretty interesting observations... Pema Chodron

5 Practices for Calming Racing Thoughts

5 Practices for Calming Racing Thoughts | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it
Racing thoughts can be overwhelming, confusing and distressing. Various strategies, thankfully, can help to calm and quiet racing thoughts.

 

Racing thoughts may be a daily reality for you or an occasional annoyance. Racing thoughts are common for people with anxiety when they’re facing a stressor. They’re also common in bipolar disorder, ADHD and other medical conditions, according to Marla Deibler, PsyD, a clinical psychologist who specializes in anxiety disorders.

For instance, anxious thoughts may be a string of worries. Deibler shared this example:

 

“I don’t have a date for the party tomorrow. I can’t go by myself. What will everyone think? What’s wrong with me? Why don’t I have a date? That’s it. I’m not going. But everyone will wonder where I am. I should go. Oh, I don’t know what to do.”

11 Habits of People Who Never Worry - Habit # 6

11 Habits of People Who Never Worry - Habit # 6 | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it
Nermeen Hassan's insight:
They have confidence they can handle whatever comes at them. "People with high worry not only generate ideas about what could go wrong, they also lack confidence in their ability to cope with what could go wrong," Purdon explains, adding that this is ironic considering worriers actually perform quite well in a crisis since they've spent so much time thinking about the worst-case scenarios and have normal coping abilities. Non-worriers, on the other hand, possess the confidence that if something were to happen, they'll just ... handle it.

Nermeen Hassan's insight:

They're more willing to take chances.

While worriers have a hard time making decisions -- they take a long time because they can become crippled by all the potential negative outcomes -- non-worriers are more willing to test out solutions to a problem even if a bad outcome is possible, Moser says. In that same vein, non-worriers are also more flexible in the way they think about things, so they don't get stuck in a negative thinking rut.

Dear Empath, we need you. | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it

To those who soak up the world’s energy like a sponge…

You play a critical role here.

 

You may not feel it sometimes. Sometimes it feels like you’re drowning in a sea of other people’s feelings, uncertain which waves have poured over from foreign waters and which come from your own deep center, far too immersed to reach, at least in this lifetime.

 

The part you play in this drama of human life is absolutely essential.

You are one of the truth-tellers.

You are one of the strong ones.

You are one of the believers in magic. You dance in the shadows to bring life to the light trickling in from cracks in the board that others fail to see.

Without you, chaos continues to ensue.

7 Things Your Inner Child Needs to Hear You Say

7 Things Your Inner Child Needs to Hear You Say | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it
You may also benefit from healing the inner child who once felt insecure and not good enough. Saying these things to yourself is a good start.

 

“Stop trying to ‘fix’ yourself; you’re not broken! You are perfectly imperfect and powerful beyond measure.” ~Steve Maraboli

 

Have you ever thought about why you can’t move forward? Have you wondered why you sabotage yourself? Have you ever questioned why you so easily feel anxious, depressed, and self-critical?

Inside each of us there’s an inner child that was once wounded.

To avoid the pain, we’ve tried to ignore that child, but s/he never goes away. Our inner child lives in our unconscious mind and influences how we make choices, respond to challenges, and live our lives.

Survival for the wisest ...

Survival for the wisest ... | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it
Nermeen Hassan's insight:

"The biological evolution has long been relying on the proverb "survival of the fittest," however with overpopulation and the overconsumption of resources, the future now belongs to the "survival of the wisest."

We have been in the information age for decades now; has the information revolution better equipped us in developing wiser individuals, better communities, more successful corporates, or a more peaceful world?

A question that requires serious thought, as wisdom come from within us, it is not imposed from the outside. This inner wisdom allows for individuals to become wiser communities that empower more focused, profitable and socially responsible corporates that generate a world more at peace.

This utopia, if only a dream begins with an individual, you, as the focus element.

By nature and grace, man is born vivid, with wisdom embedded in our body, mind and spirit that allow us to navigate through the challenges of life.

At Vivid Life our approach is based on assisting individuals in accessing their inner wisdom, taking the training methodology from learning by doing to learning by being.

Vivid Life addresses the development of human talent – both in the traditional corporate sense and in the broader sense – through incorporating techniques that have been used for centuries in creating balanced warriors, men and women that are fully equipped to meet the daily challenges with vigour, calmness and determination.

We are here to assist you on that journey to becoming who you want to be. "

Your awareness is conditioned by your accumulation | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it
Nermeen Hassan's insight:

The important thing is to be aware from moment to moment without accumulating the experience which awareness brings, because the moment you accumulate, you are aware only according to that accumulation, according to that pattern, according to that experience. That is, your awareness is conditioned by your accumulation, and therefore there is no longer observation, but merely translation. Where there is translation, there is choice, and choice creates conflict; and in conflict there can be no understanding. - Krishnamurti, The Collected Works, Vol. VI,206,Choiceless Awareness

OBSERVE IT!!

OBSERVE IT!! | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it
Nermeen Hassan's insight:

I wonder if you have ever walked along a crowded street, or a lonely road, and just looked at things without thought? There is a state of observation without the interference of thought. Though you are aware of everything about you, and you recognize the person, the mountain, the tree, or the oncoming car, yet the mind is not functioning in the usual pattern of thought. I don't know if this has ever happened to you. Do try it sometime when you are driving or walking. Just look without thought; observe without the reaction which breeds thought. Though you recognize color and form, though you see the stream, the car, the goat, the bus, there is no reaction, but merely negative observation; and that very state of so-called negative observation is action. Such a mind can utilize knowledge in carrying out what it has to do, but it is free of thought in the sense that it is not functioning in terms of reaction. With such a mind, a mind that is attentive without reaction,you can go to the office, and all the rest of it. - Krishnamurti, Collected Works, Vol. XIV,205,Choiceless Awareness

The Disorder That Time Creates

The Disorder That Time Creates - From Krishnamurti

Nermeen Hassan's insight:

Time means moving from what is to "what should be." I am afraid, but one day I shall be free of fear; therefore, time is necessary to be free of fear, at least, that is what we think. To change from what is to "what should be" involves time. Now, time implies effort in that interval between what is and "what should be." I don't like fear, and I am going to make an effort to understand, to analyze, to dissect it, or I am going to discover the cause of it, or I am going to escape totally from it. All this implies effort and effort is what we are used to. We are always in conflict between what is and "what should be." The "what I should be" is an idea, and the idea is fictitious, it is not "what I am,"which is the fact; and the "what I am" can be changed only when I understand the disorder that time creates.So, is it possible for me to be rid of fear totally, completely, on the instant? If I allow fear to continue, I will create disorder all the time; therefore, one sees that time is an element of disorder, not a means to be ultimately free of fear. So there is no gradual process of getting rid of fear, just as there is no gradual process of getting rid of the poison of nationalism. If you have nationalism and you say that eventually there will be the brotherhood of man, in the interval there are wars, there are hatreds, there is misery, there is all this appalling division between man and man; therefore, time is creating disorder. - Krishnamurti, J. Krishnamurti, The Book of Life

11 Habits Of People Who Never Worry -- Habit # 5

11 Habits Of People Who Never Worry -- Habit # 5 | Vivid Life:Empower Human, Marketing and Community Development | Scoop.it
Nermeen Hassan's insight:

They have a sense of perspective.

Non-worriers are able to distance themselves from a situation in order to gain perspective. However, worriers can increase their perspective, Moser explains. One method for doing this is thinking of all the worst possible scenarios, and then evaluating how likely each of them is to really happen. For example: If a worrier is concerned about losing her job, she may jump to the worst-case scenario, which is that she will end up living under a bridge, homeless and alone. But Moser says that talking a worrier through a scenario like this helps her understand how unlikely that outcome is to happen.

Moser suggests another simple strategy to gain perspective: Using your own name instead of "I" when referring to your emotions. For instance, saying "I'm going to fail" is harsh and doesn't allow any distance between you and the thing you're worried about. But "if you talk about yourself in the third person, you can take better perspective," Moser says.
