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!!!

Robert Kennedy Thoughts for our Life & Times ~ a message of hope!


Aaron Reed’s Perennial summer beach community yoga class.


1. All of us might wish at times that we lived in a more tranquil world, but we don’t. And if our times are difficult and perplexing, so are they challenging and filled with opportunity.

Robert Kennedy

2. Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.
Robert Kennedy

3. It is not enough to understand, or to see clearly. The future will be shaped in the arena of human activity, by those willing to commit their minds and their bodies to the task.
Robert Kennedy

Gandhi & his March to the Sea for Salt… What is Our Symbol Today?

When Gandhi marched the Indians to the sea to get their own salt and avoid the British tax on salt.  The British beat the Indians down… Gandhi was very clear not to fight back but still to stand strong as peaceful warriors holding their moral and ethical ground.  They embarrassed the British into leaving the country less then 1 year later… The British understood that their time there was over… the British were no longer welcome…

Y Yoga Movie Prod Still Statue of Liberty

Well I am not sure when our government became the enemy of the people but with all that is going on it would seem that the government is definitely not looking out for our / Main Street interests.  Our government has been asleep at the wheel for 8 years now giving us the wrong information…

Our leadership has been pushing the concept of Happiness through consumption instead of through service as well as thoughts of creating fear by chasing security… scaring us at every opportunity, in every speech!
We should instead understand what Benjamin Franklin professed with “if we forgo liberty for security we deserve neither“!

So the BIG QUESTION of BIG MIND is what are the symbols we as a free people use in this day and age to reflect, what is going on in our government is NOT OK… How do we empower our selves and our message to get back to the original intention of…. We hold these truths to be self evident, the right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness….

I love that this Iraqi reporter expressed in a moment of peaceful fearless disregard for his own safety what most of us would have liked to … he has created a Tiananmen Square moment in history… We need to follow his ambitious lead to free speech for that is where freedom and liberty are found.  Remember he threw a shoe not a bomb.  We all know how disgusting and lawless our administration has behaved, torture, no oversight, etc…  They have brought us to the abyss!  What do we do now to take a stand and begin the healing of our fragile and injured planet and people?

Please share your thoughts and ideas here as comments… We need to begin a dialogue on the internet of collective consciousness! We need to figure out what our march to the sea is and how we can peacefully and forcefully get the message across that what is going on is NOT OK!  We need to get back to the intention of what a patriot is and what it is to be an American as well as a global citizen!

in Peace with light & Love,

Arthur

911 one survivors story…. SO WE NEVER FORGET

World Trade Center Sunrise

World Trade Center Sunrise

Two days after September 11, 2001, I received the following email forwarded by a friend of a friend who escaped the collapse of World Trade Center Tower 1.

After reading this amazing story I forwarded it to a bunch of people, and then left work in the middle of the day and went to a yoga class. I thought it was a good way to begin the process to regain a sense of peace and wellbeing.

The yoga helped, so I have been practicing yoga most every day since then. My intention is to share my yoga experience with anyone who is interested. Please join me as another peaceful warrior whose intention is to do my part in healing our fragile and injured planet.

The following email exchange is where my journey began and what inspired the creation of Y Yoga Movie.

I share with you my reflection of that day 7 years later.

In peace,
Arthur

Subject: one survivors story…. SO WE NEVER FORGET.

I am sure that this is one of thousands of stories that will emerge over the next several days and weeks. I arrived as usual a little before 8am. My office was on the 87th floor of 1 World Trade Center, AKA: Tower 1, AKA: the North Tower. Most of my associates were in by 8:30m. We were standing around, joking around, eating breakfast, checking emails, and getting set for the day when the first plane hit just a few stories above us. I must stress that we did not know that it was a plane. The building lurched violently and shook as if it were an earthquake. People screamed. I watched out my window as the building seemed to move 10 to 20 feet in each direction. It rumbled and shook long enough for me to get my wits about myself and grab a co-worker and seek shelter under a doorway. Light fixtures and parts of the ceiling collapsed. The kitchen was destroyed. We were certain that it was a bomb. We looked out the windows. Reams of paper were flying everywhere, like a ticker tape parade. I looked down at the street. I could see people in Battery Park City looking up. Smoke started billowing in through the holes in the ceiling.

I believe that there were 13 of us.  We did not panic. I can only assume that we thought that the worst was over. The building was standing and we were shaken but alive. We checked the halls. The smoke was thick and white and did not smell like I imagined smoke should smell. Not like your BBQ or your fireplace or even a bonfire. The phones were working. My wife had taken our 9 month old for his check up. I called my nanny at home and told her to page my wife, tell her that a bomb went off, I was ok, and on my way out. I grabbed my laptop. Took off my tee shirt and ripped it into 3 pieces. Soaked it in water. Gave 2 pieces to my friends. Tied my piece around my face to act as an air filter. And we all started moving to the staircase.

Anatomy of an American Yogi

Yoga & the original American Spirit

Y Yoga Movie frame Time Square US Flag

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
