Circle of Love


Watching an interview with Jay Shetty, I was inspired by one of the lessons he learned from a monk called the “circle of love.” He says, “the love you give out, you will always get it back. You just won’t get it back from the same people you gave it to.” This can apply to love, hate, or anything that you put out in the world. He talks about the lesson after explaining how he went through a period of frustration at the ashram, feeling that the love he was putting out, wasn’t being reciprocated back from others. The monk told him, “just as there are people that you love and don’t love you back; there are people in your life that love you, that you have forgotten about.” The lesson made him realize that he also caused hurt to people, and they might not have hurt him back; but he received hurt from people later on that he never hurt. It made him think about the people who are in his blind spots. For me, this is a reminder of being conscious of the energy that I’m putting out, regardless of what comes back. It’s all you have control over. What’s more important, the energy YOU put out? or the energy another is putting out toward you? For me, that’s the question and the answer. Reciprocity is also important and can help you make decisions on the company you keep.

Internal: Live Life On Your Terms

Sometimes you can’t control external forces, but you have full control over your internal energy. All your emotions, perceptions, and inner being are all of your making, 100%. Whatever is thrown at you, your internal has full control over the way you perceive, react, and respond. They are directly connected to your health. Live life on your terms.

Interstellar


I thought of this movie after seeing all the fires happening on the west coast. In the story, people in high positions realize that human beings will be wiped off the planet in the next generation. Their plan is to create a small team of people to travel through space and migrate to another planet, in order to save humanity. The problem is that they can’t find a way to travel the distance with their current technology. Matthew McConaughey is chosen to come up with a plan and pilot the mission.

During the travel, the crew stumbles upon unknown physics in space that allows them to time-travel. McConaughey later sacrifices himself in order to save the crew, drifting off into space in his ship. He wakes up lost in a timeless dimension, where he can physically see into other points in time. His personal mission is to get back to his daughter who he left on Earth.

Interstellar is probably one of my favorite sci-fi’s. It also has beautiful cinematography. Video below by The Pure Cinema.
