"Life Is Good"
If we live in the moment, and are truly aware of our surroundings, then we get the messages that the universe sends us each day. I have friends that believe that if you just look at other people's license plates while you are driving, that you will find the messages for your day. I have done this, and remarkably always seem to find something useful. I remember Sevak recalling seeing a license plate that read “KARMA” surrounded by a license plate cover of skulls. Kind of ironic.
I have also used the method of starting my day by putting my Ipod on “Shuffle Songs”, and see what the first 5-10 songs that come up are. There is always a message in this as well, although I am not always certain what it is.
Today while I was at Marshalls clothes shopping, The message was clear. As I was rummaging through the clearance rack, there was the shirt that I am now wearing. Below is what it says.
Today in Yoga classes I have been talking about the way in which the stratification of society along numerous lines including racial, religious, and socio-economic, and others, leads to friction due to the number of daily interactions with other individuals of differing views. Many of these interactions tend to be passive-aggressive or outright aggressive. These competitive or adversarial encounters, causes us to feel stress, anxiety, and fear.
These feelings, while cognitive in nature, manifest in our physical bodies. There are releases of adrenaline and cortisol that prepare the body for “Fight or Flight”. Many people spent too much time in this physically stressed state. This leads the body to dis – ease.
At Ignite Yoga, we believe that yoga is for everyone–For people of all ages and all walks of life.
