The way you do anything is the way you do everything.

The way you do anything is the way you do everything.


The way you do anything is the way you do everything.  One simple shift in yoga on your mat will help you make the same shift off your mat.  The microcosm is the macrocosm.  The conflict in me is the conflict I see in the world.  My transformation will have an impact on the world around me.  I know it will.  Your transformation will have an impact on the world around you too.  I know it will.  It's time for us to become more loving, more kind and more compassionate.  Will you do this with me?  That's my reaction to the conflict, the anger and the hate I see in the world.  I will love more fully.  I will be more kind.  I will be more compassionate.  I will be more of service.  Join me and let's change this world together one action at a time.
