Don’t we get enough negativity through our experience in life? Why do we need to stare suffering in the face – isn’t there a nicer, kinder, gentler, more constructive way from our perspective? What about assuming positive intent, and changing the headline to: “LOVE goes viral” – would it sell as many magazines? All of us can recall a low point in our life. A time of complete darkness – a time when the world seemed against us. We might recall desperately seeking to climb out of a trench that we have no idea how the ditch ever became so deep. Yet, we overcame the darkness. Somehow things shifted. How?
This week, I’ve been fortunate to secure some local and national press leads on my quest to spread yoga LOVE. Knowing that talking to American about yoga is very different than selling soup, I’ve been thinking out-of-the-box and leveraging innovation and creativity. I’ve been trying to tap into the key insight as to why people seek out yoga.
I’ve come to the realization that suffering is inherent in our condition. All of us in some way, shape, or form, suffer. It may seem different, but we all experience that sick feeling in the pit of our stomach, our minds fearing the unknown. Whether we acknowledge that suffering, and seek to understand our samskaras or habitual programming, and observe it as feelings, rather than get sucked into the draining wheel of negativity, is another issue.
Most recently, I’ve found my self in an uplifting wheel of feelings ranging from honored, touched, gratified, inspired. A big reason is that I have chosen to surround myself by the love of my supporters and champions. Those people who constructively bring you up. This week I have been chosen to be an ambassador for an intitiave called “the 100 Women Project” by an amazing mommy-daughter duo. This team is on a mission to create a ripple effect of health and happiness for women throughout America, one woman at a time. They’re featuring Motivational Mondays and Superwomen Wednesdays. Who wouldn’t want to get on this plane headed skyward?
Join our cause to be a part of this health and wellness revolution sweeping across American and beyond. Consider circulating some positive prana and feeding your self with love today! With your help – LOVE will go viral.
