Why Yogi’s Vote

Why Yogis Vote 2018
Over ten years ago I remember attending a conference and listening to the Keynote Address where the speaker explained the definition of political as meaning “to care.” She said, “To be political actually means to care about your community.”
.
In a nutshell WHY Yogis VOTE is because we care.
.
We care about the air we breathe
We care about the food we eat
We care about the health of the earth
We care about education
We care about equal rights
We care about kindness
We care about those less fortunate than ourselves
We care about one another.
.
We care because we are ONE. ❤️ The word yoga comes from the root ‘yuj’, to yoke or bind together. Therefore “yoga” means unity, oneness or union.
Eknath Easwaran explains from on of the mean sacred Yogic texts, “the ideal of the Upanishads is to live in the world in full awareness of life’s unity.” He goes on to offer his own translation of the Bhagavad Gita where he says: “… all things are interconnected because at its deepest level creation is indivisible. This oneness bestows a basic balance on the whole of nature such that any disturbance in one place has to send ripples everywhere, as a perfect bubble, touched lightly in one place, trembles all over until balance is restored.”
.
What happens to one of us happens to all of us, even if we don’t agree with them, we still care.
.
Why? Because the essence of this union is #love.
.
We vote because we believe that we are united in core beliefs such as love, truth, and peace. ☮️
.
“He who is rooted in oneness realizes that I am in every being, wherever he goes, he remains in me. When he sees all beings as equal in suffering or in joy because they are like himself, that man has grown perfect in yoga.” (Bhagavad Gita 6.29-32)
.
November 6, 2018 is different than any other day. On this day in the United States of America you have the power to show you care.
.
36 million Americans practice yoga.
.
137.5 million Americans voted in the 2016 presidential election, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
.
Think of what it would mean if all American Yogis felt EMPOWERED to CARE and effect the change we want to see in the world. Remember you do make a difference.
.
VOTE.

Peace be Still

PEACE BE STILL
Daily I chant silently and aloud Om Tare Tuttare Ture Swaha. My crystal Mala blessed by Amma is always on my right wrist. It holds this mantra. 💚
.
“Tara #mantra is often used to overcome physical, mental or emotional blockages. #GreenTara is very active and steps down to help all the beings. Only thing required is that we need to resign and let go of our clinging to a particular outcome, because, to cling to a particular outcome is often self-defeating, as it creates unhappiness and agitation, particularly when it involves other people. The more we have Tara’s non-grasping attitude the more happy we are. When chanting the Tara mantra, we need to let go and bring the energy back into ourselves. This will generate immense inner peace and clarity.
:
Tara mantra protects the mind
:
#Goddess Tara is truly amazing. The #Tara mantra protects the mind from negative thoughts and vibrations. By its devotional chanting, one’s awareness expands and then you can feel the power of the blessings of Tara, who is called as the mother of all buddhas. She is extremely powerful, #compassionate and very forgiving. The mantra is truly very calming and relaxing. It helps center and calm the noise of the mind which is hyperactive.
.
People who are chanting the mantra often finds that their inner compassion is awakened.
.
Friendliness and tolerance flower in to our being as the qualities of Tara #manifest in us as we chant the Tara mantra. It is believed that reciting her mantra 108 times daily invokes her swift blessings.”

WHERE PEACE IS BORN

“Peace follows Love energy like a shadow.” – Osho

For me peace is the manifestation of love. In other words, LOVE is what peace looks like in the light. The shadow is the sometimes ugly work of healing and recovery not many want to talk about. But that’s where Peace is born. And from that the shadow and light are united as #onelove

Don’t let people’s external presence fool you into thinking that the process to get through the healing cycle of hurt, healing, healed was pretty because most often it is not. We bring the light to the shadow and the revealing can be pretty ugly. But in that acceptance of all of ourselves, true unconditional love is spiritually birthed. It was there in gestation, for some of us a very long, lifelong gestation. Once we unite shadow and light we can so easily start to live from love, in love with yourselves, our day, our lives!

EMBRACE both Shadow AND Light: This is an integral philosophy of #AlchemyofYoga whose mission is to #TeachPeace. The world is in chaos right now and yes shadow energy is heightened. This is exactly when we need to call forth asoring #LIGHTworkers to join us to #teachlove and peace. The world needs you!
.
If you’re considering a soul immersion into a YTT (yoga teacher training) than the first step of AofY is committing to live from #love.

HAIR STORY PART 2

HAIR STORY – HER STORY PART 2
By Silvia Mordini
More about my hair.
I love long hair and always will.
Last year at this time I cut 11 inches off.
I’ve been growing it out the second the hair dropped to the ground. But I had to do it. It was part of my shedding old pain and an old life.
.
I had done the work but was literally carrying around the storylines of how my life was supposed to be and I couldn’t get out from under the weight.
.
So I cut off my hair.
.
Can you see now how it’s growing? 😊
.
It’s not as long as I want it and I haven’t fully lived into my new life, but it’s progress none the less. And I’m really proud of that. 🙏
.
It’s not easier for me than someone else because I’m a #spiritual #teacher of #love #peace and #mindfulness. It’s still challenging! Recovery from near death, going blind, being in four hospitals and then heart break this last 3-4 years has been the hardest time of my life.
.
But it was necessary for my soul to grow and be now ready to meet my #soulmate ❤️ He’s almost here, I can feel it.
.
And in the meantime my hair will keep growing as long as a #mermaid😍“Darwin may have been quite correct in his theory that man descended from the apes of the forest, but surely woman rose from the frothy sea, as resplendent as Aphrodite on her scalloped chariot.”

I love you!

Looking for Peace? Here’s the Answer

When I was in the corporate world I both loved and strongly disliked Performance Appraisals. I enjoyed the feedback knowing how I was doing but at the same time it would make it harder for next time. The point came where the pressure just went up and up.

We do that in our life. We start giving ourselves a grade on everything when the reality is that it is all just pass/fail. We are passing if we learn to balance positive expectations with acceptance. “Accepting means you allow yourself to feel whatever it is you are feeling at that moment. It is part of the isness of the Now. You can’t argue with what is. Well, you can, but if you do, you suffer.” (Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth) Acceptance brings about inner peace, joy and love. Otherwise we find ourselves in a state of fighting what life is offering and it can feel like we are failing at life.

Yoga has without a doubt made me more patient. It helps me move from that state of having too heavy of expectations and grading everything to allowing and accepting.  Don’t get me wrong sometimes it’s still hard not to grade myself at life but for sure I’m better at seeing the whole thing as simply pass/fail.  What’s changed? Well I don’t want to feel that TUG-O-WAR with myself or with anyone else.  Impatience doesn’t feel good and yoga teaches the antidote to impatience is, yes you can guess, patience.  Patience feels good.  It feels like a return to center no matter the chaos or what other people do or don’t do. It feels like compassion, peacefulness and a constant return to balance. When I am patient I feel like I can attempt anything without attachment to the result.

When Patient our minds stop playing the old games of pushing, pulling, creating anxiety, distrust, stress or simple heavy expectations.

It is a simply formula:
Over Expectations = Impatience
Accepting = Patience

Eckhart Tolle in A New Earth writes “To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease, and lightness. This state is then no longer dependent upon things being in a certain way, good or bad. It seems almost paradoxical, yet when your inner dependency on form is gone, the general conditions of your life, the outer forms, tend to improve greatly.”  Try it for a week or even a day where you try living in a way where you relieve the heavy expectations of yourself and others and live with less resistance to this isness of now. Instead follow the guidance of the Yoga Sutras which advise “enjoyment is the sweetness of noticing your life right now: smell, taste, feeling, sensation.” This type of enjoyment allows us to receive what life is offering regardless of whether it looks like what we expected.

“You can’t run after contentment it has to find you, all you can do is try to create the space for it.”  (Judith Lasater) We are through yoga really meeting ourselves with no further resistance or pre-qualifications. It is like what Derek Walcott writes about in his poem: So join me feast on your life! Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia
