The Yoga of Asking Questions

Dear Yoga Student,

Asking yourself good questions is one of the
most powerful yoga practices of all…

… and there’s one question I’m obsessed with.

“If I keep doing what I’m doing now… what’s
going to happen in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?”

“Will I be happy? Healthy? Sick? Alone? Rich?
Broke? Loved? Fulfilled?”

When I’m trying to figure out what to do with my
work, my lifestyle, or my relationships, that simple
question gives me crystal clear clarity every time.

If you’re asking about yourself, your intuition
already knows the answer.

But now let’s take that question WAY beyond you
and me, and let’s start asking bigger questions.

“If we keep farming the way we’re farming now…
what is going to happen in 5 years? In 50 years?”

As I’m sure you know, genetically modified seeds
are becoming a huge player in our planet’s
ecosystem. Though no one knows for sure, it
seems like that could be a very bad thing…

… and as a guy who lives off plants (me), I have
to think about where the food I eat comes from
and whether or not it’s truly a sustainable system.

OR, is the planet just sick and getting sicker.
Problems can really linger and fester, but I find
solutions strike down lightning fast.

So, I’m optimistic that if we all keep asking
questions about ourselves, our communities,
and our planet, the solution and direction
needed will indeed come.

I was reminded of the “practice of questioning”
today after I heard a very interesting interview
with “Eco-Feminist”, Dr. Shiva.


Stay bendy,
