Om, shanti! I'm Megan,20. I am constantly learning and becoming aware of the world around me, and although there is suffering, there is also the most beautiful light. And I am a seeker of said light. I am a *vegan* and I believe animals serve a purpose much greater than to be slaughtered and served on our plates. We are meant to share this world, not conquer it. To fight the world is to fight ourselves.

You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve, would’ve happened… or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on.
The Lazy Yogi: February Mala Giveaway!

lazyyogi:

For the first Lazy Yogi monthly giveaway, I will be offering a Bayong Wood, Bone, and Turquoise wrist mala. Click here for more pictures. 

This gorgeous mala has a Native American feel to it with a bit of Tibetan flare. The rich blue color of turquoise is reminiscent of sky and water, speaking to life-sustaining vastness. In Tibetan Buddhist art, many deities are depicted with blue skin to demonstrate the infinite nature of the Soul.

Furthermore, bone is a common material used in Tibetan spiritual items as a reminder of impermanence.

To me, the mala is vivifying to the touch while bestowing a relaxed ease. Despite the ornamental appearance, it still sits well in the hand for the practice of mantra meditation.

The description on the Japa Mala Beads site reads:

“Turquoise is said to open all of the chakras, promoting the sense of unity of the self and oneness with all that surrounds us. It is also known as a master healer stone, with the ability to strengthen the immune system and stimulate tissue regeneration.

The Bayong tree grows in Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines. This grounding hardwood symbolizes development, evolution, adaptation, and spiritual growth.”

Wearing wrist malas are a wonderful way of remembering to be mindful as we go about our day. The touch of the beads on our skin is a helpful wakeup call to get out of our head and into the moment.

To enter the contest:

Reblog this post as many times as you would like between now and the end of the month. A winner will be picked at random on March 1st.

Namaste and good luck!

As you can see, I make a mess in the kitchen. That’s the fun part, right? These are my gluten free vegan sweet potato pies. They were so good. I’m pretty sure I ate an entire pie by myself (not all at once, I swear!). I bought the pie crust from Whole Foods, but I think I’ll make it myself next time around (Christmas). It was good, but the crust wasn’t quite right. As for the batter, can you say delicious? Next time I won’t add any additional sugar. The sweet potatoes were sweet enough, so sweet that they were ooey gooey in the oven after roasting. One or two medjool dates would taste better. 

Clearly, I’m still tweaking things here. I’ll get the recipe to you all as soon as I can. Happy holidays.
