I don’t care what ANYONE says ……this is the man for me ……well not literally:D:D:D
BUT anyone who practices Yoga can be trusted …..Mr Modi ( Indian Prime Minister) is reclaiming Yoga ….it is NOT a commodity ….it is an ancient all encompassing practice …..you can be ANY religion or NONE ….you can be fat ….thin ….old …..young ….black …white ….yellow …you might already have health problems ….it’s NOT about being a supermodel dressed in designer ‘Yoga Gear’ tying yourself in knots ….it costs 0 …..the benefits are now being proven by scientific research …..all you need is maybe a mat …enough space to lie flat with your arms outstretched and an ability to breath …and yes these guys are sitting in the lotus position …but if you can’t it doesn’t matter …us westerners having spent years sat in chairs often struggle with it …just sit cross legged or however is comfortable to meditate ……
Let’s join the ‘Yoga Revolution’ …….Ommmmmmmm:D:D:D
Oh and the link was sent to me by my buddy Rahul ….it’s cheered me up no end :D:D:D
Still want to read those ‘Panama Papers’ tho …..go knocking on a few doors taking some teabags a la Satish Kumar …saying
‘ Hello my names Fijay …I’ve brought you some teabags …how about popping the kettle on so we can have a nice cuppa and a chat’:D:D:D
OK ….so thought I’d let you know some of my favorite reads ….
A translation of the ‘Yoga Sutras of Patanjali’ as stated previously …..
And this is an interesting one …. ‘ol Satish proposes a ‘New Trinity for Our Time’ which not only looks at the individual human ‘mind,body,spirit’ perspective …but how the individuals make up society ….the interrelation with ‘nature ….yet embracing science and creativity in the mix
It kind of borrows from ALL faiths and none …or maybe it just strips all faiths down to their core and provides an intelligent 21st century interpretation?
Another modern classic …. good ole Ben manages to simplify the ‘Tao Te Ching’ for ‘western’ readers, through the well loved and innocent children’s book character ‘ Winnie the Pooh’:D:D:D
And that’s just ‘it’ …..keep it simple …I’ve oft thought we should all retain a little spirit of 3 …Ok maybe not TOTALLY as that would be daft:D:D:D Just retain a BIT of that awe, wonder and playfulness of a 3 year old. Again …easier said than done sometimes with the challenges of modern life and responsibilities of adulthood.
But we can ALL let go to the ‘pooh’ within us from time to time ….it’s IMPORTANT ….we should make it a PRIORITY in our daily life:D:D:D
And lastly ….this one … because ‘A person’s a person no matter how small’ and because Dr Seuss is just GREAT to read aloud with kids D:D:D
