As We Flush the Toilet on the Bush Cheney Legacy…

Y Yoga Movie Production Still of Earth from Apollo

As we flush the Toilet from the last 8 Years of the Bush Administration please consider the following thought from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Cowardice asks the question, Is it safe? Expediency asks the question, Is it politic? Vanity asks the question, Is it popular? But conscience asks the question, Is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him that it is right.”

Love, Life & Peace as we toast a new day dawning!!!

“paradox of our time”: a message from someone kool!

CORRECTION:

Although George Carlin is attributed
to the following quote….
Here is the link to a story about the actual origin

www.snopes.com:
Either way it is filled with great contemplations of our life and times.

George Carlin shows us ... Ourselves
George Carlin shows us … Ourselves

Not A Message by George Carlin:

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints.

We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We’ve added years to life not life to years.
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.

We’ve conquered outer space but not inner space.
We’ve done larger things, but not better things.
We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.

We write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but accomplish less.
We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships.  These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.

These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom.  A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete…

  • Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
  • Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
  • Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.
  • Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
  • Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.
  • Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

If you don’t send this to other people….Who cares?

Not George Carlin

Thank you Lisa for sending me this wonderful message this morning!

Love Arthur

Anatomy of an American Yogi

Yoga & the original American Spirit

Practicing yoga in the United States of America today, feels like the essence of breathing life liberty and pursuing happiness.

What i hear from our president elect is very yogic, very Gandhi,  Bhakti and  Raja…. “Yes we can!” and “Change we can believe in!” sounds a great deal like “Be the change you would like to see in the world.”
– Gandhi

This is in contrast to the charge of our last 8 years of leadership… The suggestion that we consume for the good of the country and for our own happiness … The repeated suggestions of our being very afraid and how we need to invest all our money time and energy to chase after security…  I submit, security is unobtainable since it is an abstract concept based on fear … and will eventually bankrupt us as a society.

Why have these been the intentions that have been reinforced by the Bush administration.    When did government become the enemy of the people … and to the peoples’ unalienable Rights to … Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

How about we consider just these 2 shifts

  1. What if we shift our intention of Happiness through Service instead of consumption.
  2. What if we followed Benjamin Franklin’s sage advise, “if you forgo liberty for security you deserve neither.”

If we look back at our Declaration of Independence it has so many references to very yogic ideals to the original idea of being an American…

Standing up for what is right.  Doing well by being good.

As an American who loves his practice of yoga I want to send this message of love, light, peace and hope to all of you on this unique Thanksgiving as we focus our intention to a future where all beings are Happy.
And may our happiness come from healing our fragile and injured planet.

in peace, with love,
namasté,

Arthur

What is Happiness and why is it worth pursuing?

Hello  world! This is my new WordPress blog In fact; it is the first post to this blog.

I awoke at 4 am on Saturday morning … booted my computer and excitedly searched to see if the URL “pursuitOf HappinessYoga.com” was available. To my surprise it was… which was perfect. As I purchased the address I checked in with my breath and felt deep gratitude, peace and grace within the moment. I knew in that breath I had committed to an intention of sharing a dialogue about happiness with all who care to engage in this investigation.

Most recently I have come to believe happiness is found by returning to the basic tenants of happiness as defined in our Declaration of Independence and in the sutras of yoga and meditation.  When reading both documents it is amazing the similarities that become obvious.

“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. —” through the lens of Yoga.
…It just seems so obvious!

I invite you to join me for this journey into honoring happiness gained through service instead of consumption and liberty realized through feeling free from the inside out instead of chasing security by embracing fear and paranoia…. as our, soon to be past, leadership would have it…

I am so happy that instead of shopping or vacationing after 911 I began attending yoga classes everyday!  Which has lead to an ordinary not so happy guy having and extraordinarily happy experience of life!

Over future posts I look forward to sharing the unfolding of journey, marching with all of you to heal our fragile and injured planet.  We are the change we want to see.

May all beings be happy!

In peace with love and light,

Arthur Klein

PS.  Until the next post please enjoy my most recent offering to the meditation “May All Beings Be Happy”    this is a trailer from Y Yoga Movie… an 88 minute documentary of the last 7 years of my journey.
