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!!!
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,
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.
