“Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others…for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received and am still receiving.”
It’s remarkable to note that we are more than halfway through April — in my world, a month that ushers in greater awareness and a celebration of the healing power of yoga.
I am participating in Living Yoga‘s 7th Annual Yogathon and would be honored to have your support as I raise money for this organization that’s taught me so much through granting me the privilege of bringing yoga into places the average person is never allowed to see. Places we generally don’t like to look as a society, but it is necessary to do so — because what are we here for, if not for “the sake of others”.
