A healthy relationship is a relationship where you both feel content, safe, seen, whole as one individual and not in need of the other. Of course no relationship is perfect and we are all in relationships to grow, for our buttons to be pushed and our wounds to be triggered but over all a relationship must be a safe, loving, supportive space. Know the difference between a toxic relationship and a healthy relationship. A toxic relationship is a relationship where you feel more intense extreme up’s and down’s. Often you will hear someone say (and I’ven totally been there too) ‘’when it’s bad it is so bad, but when it is good - its so good.’’ This is unhealthy - even toxic…
Ask yourself is your partner leaving you more feeling extreme feelings? More times you feel empty rather than full? This excitement, this lust, this chase and need to be with this person forever, is actually a desperation for love which is often a child hood wound or past wound that’s not yet healed. Or it may be a karmic lesson with this soul and if you continue to feed it this life you will be in this same situation of empty love until you truly cut that cord.
Allow there to be a time in your life where you ask yourself, is this serving me? Is this relationship serving me? Is this partner growing with me?
Is the relationship filled with ego and it is ego meets ego rather than heart meets heart? Are there fights followed by massive highs? These deep lows followed by massive highs actually release a hormone in the body which is the same hormone that releases for a drug addict when they get their drugs. It’s an addictive cycle.
And it’s coming to that point where you have to ask yourself do I need to let this person go? Do I need to let them go so I can grow and choose me and love me. And your like you know what I am fucking good enough and I am ending this cycle because I do deserve more and this partner I have manifested into reality is just a mirror of my own inner demons, wounds and insecurities. So, asking yourself do I need to do myself a favor and honor me and truly heal before I can be in a relationship?
Often these relationships will have one partner acting out but👇🏼CONTINUES👇🏼

A few points. Sometimes, even oftentimes, saying ""just take it man"" is a very good way to win. What are you winning, you say? Your life.
But mick, how do you know he isn't going to shoot you after he takes your stuff. YOU DON'T know that.
Life is fraught will uncertainty and danger. How good a fighter are you? How good a fighter are you when caught completely off guard and with your pants down? How about with a huge motorcycle betwixt your legs?
This community has done a disservice to many by instilling the idea that human combat is the answer to every problem. Wrong wrong wrong.
Guns solve some problems. Fists another. Electric conduction weapons (taser) yet another, pepper sprays but what is most effective?
Our eyes, ears and brain. Pay attention.
We know that we must be aware, what you do with that information gained through awareness is another story.
If you train with weapons do you train your mouth?
Think about training calming and soothing speech. That said we are talking about a certain instance. Some bad people may very well require nothing but every ounce of fight in you. This is why we train.
Check out my pals @instructor_zee and @paul_sharp_sbg for deep dives into this topic of close human conflict. If you're attending the next S12 which is focused on these problems, both men will be there.

As always, look at the world around you. The mountain is not restless in it's aloneness. The hawk tracing circles in the sky is not longing for union with the sun. They exist in the perfect peace of an eternal present, and that is the peace that one finds only in solitude. Find this peace in yourself, and you will never know another moment of loneliness in your life. ▪K.N.
Solitude is beneficial and essential for our well-being. Practice is key.

How do you take away thought? Simply by being aware of thought. In becoming aware of the mind, you become aware that you are other than mind.

EYE ON THE PRIZE. It’s what we’re always told when we’re chasing goals with a vengeance. But I personally think we could afford to divert one of these eyes to what we’re leaving behind as we strive like it’s our job. —
Because as we hustle, we grind, the real questions should be what am I sacrificing to make progress? And WHY? —
Will it truly be worth it when we get there (wherever “there” might be)? Or are we risking breaking ourselves and our ties to those around us all in pursuit of what we’ve deemed the greater good? —
Think about it. Long and hard. And know that in order to proceed with confidence you must be able to comfortably answer this question: —
Where are you taking from to give to? #notetoself
PART 1 - THE GREAT REVEAL:
As humans we love statistics. We love to put things into perspective to make ourselves feel lucky or fortunate. There’s a lot of numbers that we can relate to and some we wish we could belong to (um sign me up to the top 1% please and thank you).These numbers comfort us, help us identify boxes to fit into and provide reassurance that ‘fuck alright I'm not that weird Dave must also be pissing in the shower’. There are however some statistics we avoid being apart of at all costs, some that as individuals we may be ashamed to admit we belong to (like those avid porn hub viewers who contributed to Hentai porn taking out second spot on the most popular search term in 2017). We lie, deny and hide from certain statistics; fearful of judgement and prejudice. We create taboos, barriers and ostracise people for belonging to a certain number - a number that they aren’t alone in (Yes, Dave is also rubbing one out over some anime hotties so rest assured, you are not alone!). 45 days ago I became apart of a statistic: I joined the 1 in 10 Australians who have HSV 2 (good ol’ genital herpes). Unfortunately it wasn’t quite my dream of rubbing shoulders with Elon Musk; in fact I was thinking I won’t be able to rub anyone ever again. On initial diagnosis I was fearful and terrified; not of what it would mean for my health moving forward but rather how society would see and treat me. How would I tell my future partner? Would I ever be able to have casual sex again? What will my friends and family think of me? Would Elon Musk ever sleep with someone who had herpes? Words like ‘dirty’, ‘reckless’ and ‘slut’ whizzed through my mind as I tried to envision what my romantic and sexual life would look like moving forward. I was fucking scared and felt so alone.
But why should I feel alone? I was 1 in 10. Where were my other HSV 2 positive people?! How in my adult life had I not come into contact with more?! I mean, I slept with someone who was positive and they didn’t tell me…. was this because it was a taboo that they were afraid to disclose to me in fears I would high tail it out of their shitty share house bedroom?
Yoga! More then the body, more then the breath and more then the mind. If I were to ask you to imagine or comprehend what an extraterrestrials form and life would like like, we would have no idea, because we haven’t yet experienced or seen one for ourselves. Yoga is just that as well. Most of us have only seen the physicality of life and spirituality, but we have not yet seen that which is beyond physical nature. So yoga tends to only take on a physical expression and mental experience for most of us. But yoga essentially is to take us beyond our minds and bodies, not in an ungrounded way, but in a very deeply grounded way. There is a difference between being lost in our minds and bodies and being grounded in our minds and bodies, to be grounded we must experience ourselves as seperate from our physical nature, and in doing so that allows us to be grounded in the flesh that we inhabit. Namaste 🙏🏼🌼 #yoga#life#truth#spirituality#love#beingness#nature#awareness#awakening#yogic#transformation#thebeautyofyoga
The 9th annual “Be MedicineWise Week” is all about getting to know the language of medicine. We think it is important for all patients, friends and families to have the knowledge and confidence they need when speaking with their doctor. Some small questions you can ask your doctor to be more MedicineWise are:⠀
1. Do I really need this test, medicine, treatment or procedure?⠀
2. What are the risks?⠀
3. Are there simpler, safer options?⠀
4. What happens if I don’t do anything?⠀
5. What are the costs?⠀
New blog discussion available! ✍️ Link in bio 🙌
This discussion dives deep into the fundamental aspects of ‘individualism and collectivism’. It covers what the unique aspects of being both a seperate person and one part of a co-active collective.
Exploring the inseparable nature of the two and how being an individual is just as paramount as being merged within a collective.
As this discussion may seem first philosophical I implore you to really consider the practical implications.
Within this discussion, there lies physically tangible applications.
The attention that is directed to this area of human experience determines the quality of our human development.
So I encourage you to read with inquisitiveness and an open mind. There are profound things to be explored 💫
