There is a story I would like to tell you about a woman who practices the invocation of the Buddha Amitabha’s name. She is very tough, and she practices the invocation three times daily, using a wooden drum and a bell, reciting, “Namo Amitabha Buddha” for one hour each time. When she arrives at one thousand times, she invites the bell to sound. (In Vietnamese, we don’t say “strike” or “hit” a bell.) Although she has been doing this for ten years, her personality has not changed. She is still quite mean, shouting at people all the time.

A friend wanted to teach her a lesson, so one afternoon when she had just lit the incense, invited the bell to sound three times, and was beginning to recite “Namo Amitabha Buddha,” he came to her door, and said, “Mrs. Nguyen, Mrs. Nguyen!” She found it very annoying because this was her time of practice, but he just stood at the front gate shouting her name. She said to herself, “I have to struggle against my anger, so I will ignore that,” and she went on, “Namo Amitabha Buddha, Namo Amitabha Buddha.”

The gentleman continued to shout her name, and her anger became more and more oppressive. She struggled against it, wondering, “Should I stop my recitation and go and give him a piece of my mind?” But she continued chanting, and she struggled very hard. Fire mounted in her, but she still tried to chant “Namo Amitabha Buddha.” The gentleman knew it, and he continued to shout, “Mrs. Nguyen! Mrs. Nguyen!”

She could not bear it any longer. She threw away the bell and the drum. She slammed the door, went out to the gate and said, “Why, why do you behave like that? Why do you call my name hundreds of times like that?” The gentleman smiled at her and said, “I just called your name for ten minutes, and you are so angry. You have been calling the Buddha’s name for ten years. Think how angry he must be!

my therapist taught me to start thinking of my anxiety as my panicky friend

it’s working???

this is so cute omg

Woah this is super useful!!

For all my anxious friends out there.

This totally works! Some of us get stuck in the sense that we *are* our emotions, so they overwhelm us and we can’t do anything about them. When you give your emotion an identity separate from you, it gives you the distance to make better judgments about it, and to comfort yourself better. 10/10 therapy veterans would recommend.

Needed this today.

Vorágine (Vortex), Rodrigo Dada

"Vorágine es una reflexión sobre la crisis interior y la capacidad del ser humano de regenerarse, de renacer de sus propias cenizas. Emprendo una búsqueda existencial dentro del mundo contemporáneo por medio de lo absurdo, tratando de encontrar un sentido dentro de lo que no tiene sentido, con una ironía de las situaciones cotidianas y una crítica de nuestra sociedad alienada e individualista en donde la frontera entre la cordura y la locura es cada vez mas estrecha. 

Siempre me ha interesado fotografiar lo absurdo en relación con la gente y los objetos, en donde los personajes retratados son captados en ese viaje existencial que aspira a dar un sentido a nuestras vidas, luchando por ese balance perfecto, tan difícil de alcanzar.”

/// 

"Vortex is a project about personal crisis and the human ability to regenerate, to rise from our ashes. Through the absurd, I explore the contemporary world, to find meaning in the meaningless, through the irony I aim to bring awareness about alienation. 

I reflect on absurd situations between people and objects in everyday life. the struggle to reach a balance and find meaning.”

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

Dissociative amnesia is a part of a group of disorders known as dissociative disorders. A person is diagnosed with this kind of amnesia when he or she (most commonly she) blocks out certain personal information because of a stressful or traumatic experience. It is not due to…

Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.
