We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other’s opposite and complement.
Hermann Hesse (via restfulmuses)
You have been brainwashed since you were a small child, you’ve got samskaras from different lives, all coming at you in full force. And you have a belief system that you react to everyday. You say this is good and this is bad and this is right and this is wrong, I love this and I hate this. All part of your belief system, the mind. Now these roots have been planted a long time ago. Therefore to get rid of your negative thinking so-to-speak, you have to dig a big hole to pull out the roots. You do this by turning away from your problems, turning away from your situations, turning away from the world and diving deep within yourself. Continually, day after day after day, never looking for results. Never saying, I’ve been practicing a month now and nothing has happened. Remember how many years it took you to be the way you are. The things that your mind has accepted. The stuff you’ve got deep in your subconscious so-to-speak. It has to come up and gotten rid of.

Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, daughter of French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, was born in Namibia. During her childhood she befriended many wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant called Abu and a leopard nicknamed J&B. She was embraced by the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, as well as how to speak their language.
