But what if we thought of life like a river?
This is an important metaphor in many cultures who focus on the present, and finding peace in everyday activities such as Zen or Buddhism.
Our energy flows in one direction: forward. Like a river, everything we accumulate on this journey travels with us forward, forward, forward.
Sometimes we are caught in a whirlpool. These accumulated mistakes, self-doubt, and anger attract more of their kind until we are swirling around ourselves in turmoil and resistance.
What if eliminating this whirlpool and getting back into the flow of the river was a simple as just letting go?
Believe it or not, that’s really as simple as it gets. At our 2 Hour Flow & Art of Living, we allow ourselves to let go of anger and stress and be present in this moment, right now, robbing the whirlpool of its power. Without the negative energy that is keeping us from moving forward, this tornado of bad vibes has no fuel. It dissolves, and we continue down the river! Collecting good energy, friendships, memories, health, success, and peace.
SO HOW CAN I LET GO?
A simple and creative way to get in touch with the energy around us is to “Flow.”
Flowing is an exercise where one uses the energy in and around themselves, and mixes with the energy from nature (the wind, the sound of the birds singing, the smell of the flowers in the garden) as well as their own breath.
It is simple practicing the art of living.
We start with a simple but effective meditation. Then, we focus on connecting with our breath through different movements and patterns.
Then we flow! This part is hard to describe since everyone is different, and we all feel the pull of nature in unique ways. Maybe the breeze is blowing your hips in different directions. Maybe the sound of the birds makes you jump around in rhythm. Whatever you feel is comfortable. The fun and unique part about flowing is how freeing it can be. Just letting go and moving in ways that may be new to you can relieve stress like nothing else!
What you get is an amazing tango between your own energy and the embrace of nature, breathing deeply and finding new ways to explore the space.
why do we indulge with wholesome foods?
Think of your body as a river. Remember that metaphor? Everything that you put in it can either dissolve into good energy, or start a whirlpool of stress and bad habits.
The main bad habit that people have related to what they eat, is not actually the type of food they consume.
Emotional stress can block your mind and even it can stop you from doing everything you want to get done every day. When having and stressful moment, your body struggles to focus, not only your neuronal synapsis becomes erratic, all your organs have malfunctions as a virus could be infecting your CPU on your computer, that includes your digestive system, without being able to get the vitamins, nutrients, and healing properties for more balanced and healthy your diet seems to be.
Have you noticed friends that proclaim to eat the best food, but their health is far from vibrant? Have you noticed as well that their vibe is far from aligned, their smile is far from authentic and their achievements are far from meaningful? All can go back to their natural flow, it just takes allowing it. Happiness should be also organic.
Much of the abundance that we enjoy at The Vibe House, transpires into foods, we not just have nourish our soul but also our body with incredibly of delicious, quality, gourmet cuisine made with organic locally grown produce. A every day at the Vibe House, starts with a flow movement and ends with a meal that YOU help prepare, you’ll leave with the tools you need to continue this mingling of good energy throughout your life.
Hi, I am Perkunas. I been cooking and practicing the art of living since an early age, as all of us, it has been a journey with all the layers of roughness and beauty, time has pass and now, it is aa knowing the art of living is for sure something I will never stop learning. But to be honest, at this point, it has becomes not learning anymore, but instead, to let go the old while enjoying life, intuition replace practical knowledge, inspiration replaces productivity and there is no rush anymore in getting thing ripe or done, but enjoy the glittering of the sunshine between the leafs, while what you want to manifest is ripen in perfect sync as nature intended.
Like the pancake picture on the right, it was created in collaboration with Lulu and natures’s gift, a luscious Kabocha Squash. Here at the Vibe House, we can’t stop to be amazed me how nature gives abundantly her gifts, over and over, all this air, light, earth and water that moves, transforms, fed us, pamper us, heal us, inspire us. We believe that nature want us to be enjoying to the best of our ability.
While flowing and making art of the gift of life, the possibilities become unlimited, now we can see them clearly, possibilities before where a foggy mist between a nebula of cluttering thought forms.
life is movement
Even more now this new age, if you don’t let go of old believes, you become obsolete pretty quick. Just like if you don’t upgrade your programing, your computer wont be able to keep up. Our body wont be able to dance to new rhythms, your kids will talk a language you don’t understand, your world view will narrow to your cubical or your room, your imagination will collapse into an auto run mode, where you have no more control of your life, but guided and directed instead by a facebook add or instagram feed. Let’s come back to earth right? There is way too much to explore and appreciate.
