“A ampliação da percepção é uma importante ferramenta para o desenvolvimento espiritual. Ela está intimamente ligada à entrega. Porém, a entrega é um florescimento, um fenômeno que não se domina. Mas conforme vai ampliando a sua percepção, a entrega acontece. E essa entrega vai aumentar ainda mais a sua percepção. Assim cria-se um ciclo benigno: você começa a expandir cada vez mais a consciência e a sustentar o prazer positivo.”

“La ampliación de la percepción es una importante herramienta para el desarrollo espiritual. Está estrechamente vinculada a la entrega. Sin embargo, la entrega es un florecimiento, un fenómeno que no se domina. Pero, conforme vas ampliando tu percepción, la entrega ocurre. Y esta entrega incrementará aún más a tu percepción. Así se crea un ciclo benigno: comienzas a expandir cada vez más la conciencia y a sustentar el placer positivo.”

"The expansion of our awareness is an important tool for spiritual growth, and it is closely linked to surrender. Surrender is a flowering, a phenomenon that cannot be controlled. As we amplify our perception, surrender takes place, and this surrender further increases our consciousness. In this way, we create a propitious cycle: the more we expand our awareness, the more we are able to sustain positive pleasure."

Today's Daily Dharma: The Consumer Mentality

The Consumer Mentality
When we turn to spirituality, we may think that we're leaving the corruption of the world behind. But our old ways of thinking do not disappear; they follow us, coloring the way we approach spiritual practice. Since we have all been raised to be good consumers "getting the most while paying the least" as dharma students and teachers we carry our consumer mentality right into our spiritual practice.

Via JMG: Kermit & Miss Piggy Go Splitsville



 
Miss Piggy has issued the same statement on Facebook. More from USA Today:
The gimmick for this new series is that it's a reality show taking us "behind the scenes" at Miss Piggy's talk show, Up Late with Miss Piggy. "We've been given unfettered access," says producer Bill Prady, best known for The Big Bang Theory. "We tried to fetter it," adds Kermit, "but it didn't work out." And yes, of course, Kermit was on the panel at the Television Critics Association press tour. And he was asked about his relationship with Miss Piggy. "Piggy and I have gone our separate ways romantically," Kermit says. "I guess it's just coming out in the press now. It can be tough to work with your ex. It can be tough to be the executive producer on your ex's talk show, particularly when your ex is a pig." Can they get back together? "People change. So do frogs and pigs." For now, though, Kermit has moved on. His latest girlfriend is a pig who works for ABC. "I do have an attraction to pigs."

Detachment - O substituto

Publicado em 8 de fev de 2014
Henry Barthes é um professor brilhante com um verdadeiro talento para se conectar com seus alunos. Em outro mundo, ele seria um herói para sua comunidade. Mas, assombrado por um passado conturbado, ele escolhe ser professor substituto - nunca na mesma escola por mais que algumas semanas, nunca permanecendo tempo suficiente para formar qualquer relação com os alunos ou colegas. Uma profissão perfeita para alguém que busca se esconder ao ar livre. Quando uma nova missão o coloca numa decante escola pública, o isolado mundo de Henry é exposto por três mulheres que mudam a sua visão sobre a vida: uma estudante, uma professora e uma adolescente fugitiva.
