Besides school curriculum, we do some home schooling mainly teaching our kids how to respect and protect our planet and also art. This month, we are learning about endangared species. Thanks to the @globalguardianproject for the wonderful DIY art printable. We are also learning about my all time favorite artist Frida Kahlo. Love this drawing by Victoria.
Además del contenido que aprenden en el colegio, en casa trabajamos en reforzar el aprendizaje de nuestros hijos en dos áreas importantes, el respeto y protección de nuestro planeta y también arte. Este mes, aprendemos sobre algunas especies en peligro de extinción. Gracias a @globalguardianproject por las plantillas de animales para colorear. También estamos aprendiendo sobre mi pintora favorita, Frida Kahlo. Me encanta este dibujo que Victoria ha hecho de ella.
ॐ मणिपद्मे हूँ,
Om Mani Padme Hum
Mantras are simple words and phrases which interrupt negativity and invite change.
A six syllable mantra associated with the four-armed bodhisattva known as Avalokitesava in Sanskrit texts (a.k.a Kwan Yin in Chinese texts.)
"The mantra Om Mani Pädme Hum is easy to say yet quite powerful, because it contains the essence of the entire teaching. When you say the first syllable Om it is blessed to help you achieve perfection in the practice of generosity, Ma helps perfect the practice of pure ethics, and Ni helps achieve perfection in the practice of tolerance and patience. Pä, the fourth syllable, helps to achieve perfection of perseverance, Me helps achieve perfection in the practice of concentration, and the final sixth syllable Hum helps achieve perfection in the practice of wisdom.
"So in this way recitation of the mantra helps achieve perfection in the six practices from generosity to wisdom. The path of these six perfections is the path walked by all the Buddhas of the three times. What could then be more meaningful than to say the mantra and accomplish the six perfections?"
—Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Heart Treasure of the Enlightened Ones

“Let us fall in love again and scatter gold dust all over the world.
Let us become a new spring and feel the breeze drift in heaven’s scent.
Let us dress the earth in green and like the sap of a young tree let the grace from within us sustain us.
Let us carve gems out of our stony hearts and let them light our path to Love. The glance of Love is crystal clear and we are blessed by its light.” Rumi
Self-care Sunday: suppositories aren’t something I’ve introduced to my self-care routine but I recently came across a CBD infused offering I’m excited to try and review. What are your feelings about suppositories? Vaginal? Anal? Interested but what to learn more? (That’d make two of us!) Let me know in the comments and I’ll be sure to answer them in the video to come 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽
