Philippe Halsman's #jump! photos are always fun, but today is an especially good time to leap into a whole bunch. The November 9, 1959 issue of Life Magazine had a jump shot feature, with Marilyn on the cover. #LeapDay

Start with #desire.

One has to begin with desiring something that cannot be achieved by desiring. But if you are aware of this fact - if you are aware of the fact that you are desiring something that cannot be desired - it helps. At any moment, you can take the #jump.
With the #mind we cannot understand anything which is effortless. Mind means effort. The faculty of the mind is to do something; it is an instrument for doing. The very faculty of mind is to #achieve something, to gain some desire.
You cannot begin with no #desiring. The mind will make this non-desiring also the desired object.

The mind will create new desire and say, “Okay, I will try not to desire.” It will say, “Really, it looks fascinating. I will try to do something so that this no desiring happens.”

A few days ago I came across a news story of a young lady called Misozi been appointed as MD of @ilovezoona. A few Google search’s later, I was even more intrigued by her story and decided I had to meet her & get to know a bit more about her.
Misozi’s father passed away when she was 8, so her mom was breadwinner. Unfortunately her mothers’ eyes gave up and she had to stop her tailoring business. Her older brother had to take on the responsibility of putting himself and 4 siblings through school.
After passing High School, she got a place at Evelyn Hone College. Unfortunately after one semester, her brother informed her that he couldn’t continue with school fees and she would have to look for a job so that he could assist her other siblings.
