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.

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.
