YOU ARE VITALLY IMPORTANT - YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
JULY 17TH, 2008: I love movies! A new movie releasing August 1st called SWING VOTE with Kevin Costner talks about how a presidential election comes down to one person's vote. So that got me thinking...I really want you to enjoy your practice and feel that every single pose, every breath, every vinyasa on the mat is deeply meaningful. It is easy to get caught up in the cyncism of today convincing ourselves that what we think and what we do doesn't matter. This couldn't be further from the TRUTH.
Today more than ever before every single breath, every gesture in a pose makes a world of difference. So do your best to make everything count. Your contributions are vitally important!
For take home practice think about all those that contribute to the sweetness of your life: the truck drivers bringing food to the Jewel/Dominicks; the urban planners who organized our stop lights and roadways for ease of travel; the Policmen & Policewomen and Firefighters that keep us safe, the Farmers that grow our food, your employer who provides a place to earn a living and most of all your Family & Friends.
Now think about all the things you did today to make the life of another person a little easier or more peaceful: a kind compliment; an email; a phone call; giving up your parking space; a small gift; a card, just a loving thought. When you reflect on the importance of others in your life and how much of a blessing you are to others it is easy to appreciate our connection to one another...Remember LIFE IS NOT A GAME OF SOLITAIRE.
