Fushimi Inari shrine is without doubt my favorite from all the places I visited in Japan.💘 We arrived there at 7am so there was almost no one there, just a few locals and only some tourists. When we went down Mount Inari again, on 10am, at the bottom part it was extremely crowded😱 Waking up early always has a reward!😉 #kyoto#fushimiinari#shrine#japan
Since material creation is constantly in a state of creation and destruction it is never and will never be at rest, however, it does, and should in Truth remain at its own steady pace of decline without alterations made outside of Truth/The Way. All within creation, are the same as creation itself. The cycle should not be disturbed outside of Truth in an attempt of accelerating its destruction. Creation is One, We Are One, Do Not allow a second to damage One, intended for All, As One.

Anh chỉ muốn cởi mở hơn, đừng lo mình sẽ dại dột đi🎶🎵 ⛩ is the symbol of #Shinto religion.
"Shinto ("the way of the #gods ") is the indigenous faith of the #Japanese people and as old as Japan itself. It remains Japan's major #religion alongside #Buddhism .
Shinto does not have a founder nor does it have sacred scriptures like the sutras or the Bible. Propaganda and preaching are not common either, because Shinto is deeply rooted in the Japanese people and traditions. "Shinto gods" are called #kami . They are sacred #spirits which take the form of things and concepts important to life, such as wind, rain, mountains, trees, rivers and fertility. Humans become kami after they die and are revered by their families as ancestral kami. The kami of extraordinary people are even enshrined at some shrines. The Sun Goddess #Amaterasu is considered Shinto's most important kami.
"My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to find peace with exactly who and what I am. To take pride in my thoughts, my appearance, my talents, my flaws and to stop this incessant worrying that I can’t be loved as I am." - Anaïs Nin
Q: Do you ever really miss a place that you’ve travelled to? 🌏✈️
I’m missing Japan a lot today, so I wanted to share one of my favourite photos that I took there. We were at the Meiji Shrine in Tokyo close to sunset, and left after sunset (since that’s when temples there close). It was getting dark and these lights were turning on...and I saw this shot when I looked back at the Shrine while we were waking away. Something about it looked magical to me. So, obviously, I had to take a photo! ⛩💕
