The ultimate act of unf*ckwithability isn't about avoiding conflict or cutting off toxic relationships. ⠀ It's finding the courage to forgive. 🙏 ⠀ Gandhi once said that, "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong." ⠀ Because forgiving someone who wronged you (and I'm talking - REALLY wronged you) is one of the most difficult things any of us can do. ⠀ But if you really want to feel unf*ckwithable in the present - you first have to make peace with the past. Now, that doesn't mean you're letting someone off the hook or dismissing the pain and the damage they caused. 🤕 ⠀ You're just refusing to relive that pain over and over and over again. You're giving yourself permission to move forward and finally let go of the hurt. ⠀ Easier said than done, right? ⠀ That's why all this week I'll be sharing everything I've learned from speakers, scientists, and mystics on the art of radical forgiveness on @mindvalley. ⠀ If that sounds like something you're interested in, join me for a live training I'm hosting for free on Zoom. 👆 Link in my profile
Filming for the @Mindvalley channel coming to Emirates airlines soon. And yes I’m wearing pajama bottoms under my suit. We were filming at my apartment and after 3 weeks of lockdown in Estonia the very act of putting on proper pants just seems so so so .....bothersome now. So fuckit. Pajama bottoms it is. But you won’t see this on your posh @emirates airlines video monitors when the world starts traveling again. (I told the cameraman to aim above the waist. ) Also coming to Emirates, our Mindvalley trainers like @doctorshefali , @jimkwik and @lisa2motivate . 🙌🏽 Do you zoom in inappropriate lower body casual wear?

I’m fascinated by the science and practice of forgiveness. So much data is showing that forgiveness actually improves endurance, improves athletic performance and even helps you heal. And practitioners of radical forgiveness suggest that it helps improve all other spiritual practices - from intuition to manifesting. 🙌🏽 So in 2015 onwards I began studying forgiveness. I visited labs around the world and hooked by brain up to neuro-training machines to see what happened when one attempts to forgive everyone for everything (including forgiving yourself). I took some of the best forgiveness protocols I found and ingrained them into my own practices like the Six Phase Meditation. 🧘♀️ Radical forgiveness shifted me. I found it opened you up to levels of spiritual awareness and feelings of bliss and peace that were previously hard to attain. And so today almost all my work references the power of forgiveness. My new book (due 2025) called “Becoming Unfuckwitable” explores this topic. And because I’m so passionate on the healing power of forgiveness I’m teaching a class this Sat on Zoom for free. If you’re interested in exploring the science and spirituality of forgiveness, block off 90 mins and join this class free. I’m also guiding the class through a guided forgiveness protocol that’s been scientifically validated. “I think the first step is to understand that forgiveness does not exonerate the perpetrator. Forgiveness liberates the victim. It’s a gift you give yourself.” — T. D. Jakes Hope to see you in the class. All info on the LINK IN BIO. If you need to forgive yourself, forgive an ex, heal some past pain, or just want to attend to experience the concepts - book a seat. It’s on Zoom and limited to 3,000 people.

This quote by MLK Jr inspired my world view. This is why I reference MLK so much in my writing. The image above is from the opening of Chapter 6 of “The Buddha and the Badass.” It came from a speech MLK delivered in 1967 called “Where Do We Go From Here?” And in the full speech he elaborates this key point: ⚡️💕 “… Power properly understood is nothing but the ability to achieve purpose. It is the strength required to bring about social, political, and economic change. … Now a lot of us are preachers, and all of us have our moral convictions and concerns, and so often we have problems with power. But there is nothing wrong with power if power is used correctly. You see, what happened is that some of our philosophers got off base. And one of the great problems of history is that the concepts of love and power have usually been contrasted as opposites, polar opposites, so that love is identified with a resignation of power, and power with a denial of love.” And this is something I think more people have to learn to understand. The political leader who uses his power to vilify, ignite racial hatreds, stoke fear — is the epitome of power without love. Likewise, the spiritual soul, spending hours in endless introspection but choosing not to speak up or take a stand is love without power. Both are incomplete. One has to unite both forces, to fully be alive. Or as MLK said: 👌 “You may be thirty-eight years old, as I happen to be. And one day, some great opportunity stands before you and calls you to stand up for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause. And you refuse to do it because you are afraid…You refuse to do it because you want to live longer….You’re afraid that you will lose your job, or you are afraid that you will be criticized or that you will lose your popularity, or you’re afraid that somebody will stab you, or shoot at you or bomb your house; so you refuse to take the stand. Well, you may go on and live until you are ninety, but you’re just as dead at thirty-eight as you would be at ninety. And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit.” Your views?
