The best I have is Yoga

The best I have is Yoga

With Christmas around the corner the question What can I give? What can I share that might be of real use to someone?  arises.

I believe in sharing the best you have. May it be your time, your special skill, your leadership, humor, your ability to listen, nurture, provide work, ask an important question etc.

I like to share the best I have. And the best I have is yoga.

Thanks to Katharina, Venice, Carlos and Daniele in Portugal sharing their gifts, I was able to share mine in this interview and workshop snippet from this year’s program in Lisbon.

 

 

We all need one another. To share the best we have.

Wishing you a connected Christmas,

Swami Mukti

Simplicity starts here

Simplicity starts here

A tourist visited a Sufi. He was astonished to see that the Sufi’s home was a simple room. The only furniture were a mat and a kerosene lamp. Tourist:    “Sufi, where is your furniture?” Sufi:          “Where is yours?” Tourist:    “Mine? But I am only a visitor here!” Sufi:  … Keep Reading

Are we making progress?

Are we making progress?

We live in a world focused on achievement and gain as the main goals of life— assuming that an increase in our possessions and comfort means we are evolving. But why is our assumed “progressive” world suffering from discontent more than ever before? I’ve seen the biggest unhappiness in the most ‘successful’ people. What makes… Keep Reading

Fear of the unknown

Fear of the unknown

At the beginning of our lives ignorance is a comfort. We are accustomed to the way we are and how we perceive life … we simply don’t know anything else; things are “as they should be”. However, that comfort isn’t a constant— life itself will begin sending us hints of something more. A child who… Keep Reading

Occasionally we are so close to freedom, but we keep missing the door. What’s holding us back? Let me share a story.   There was a blind man who lived by himself inside a big room. For many years he did not leave this place and did not question his situation. He thought to himself:… Keep Reading
