Strength Week Recap
Strength is not always visible to the naked eye. Sometimes we have to look beneath the surface to find out just exactly what we are made of! This week we explored strength not just as a physical quality, but as a spiritual, mental and emotional element that guides and shapes our relationships with the world and those who surround us every day of our lives. Here are some highlights from the past few days:
Noteworthy quotes illustrated that true strength is about grace, hope and softness of being.
- “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” (Gandhi)
- “With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” (Eleanor Roosevelt)
- “Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.” (Khalil Gibran)
We shared 5 ways to grow strong minds and bodies, including tips about yoga, green eating, and more
We analyzed common misperceptions about emotional strengths and weaknesses, such as being a “doormat” for others vs, being strong in compassion and forgiveness
We continued our newly popular series… and took a look at “Strength” from A-Z!
We made a video about the Solar Plexus Chakra (our center of spiritual strength)
And we looked at the importance of finding strength in being happy everyday!
One interesting fact that made us think deeply about strength: the human heart is about the same size as a closed fist… the contrast between those two images really makes you think about “strength” and where our energy comes from! Remember that real strength can never be measured on a scale. It can only be measured by the amount of good you do for those around you.
Next week we’ll be exploring “Luminaries,” a selection of very special men and women who have shaped the philosophical identity of our modern times. We hope you’ll join us, and remember, head over to facebook.com/buddhagroove or visit us at MindFuelDaily.com to receive every new update in each of our new themes to come!
