Love is love. To think you can control who you love is just insane. Love is a gift. It's a blessing that takes you by storm. Love is not logical, nor does it see straight and narrow, or maybe it's the only thing on Earth that makes any sense at all. Love is strength, a decision to stick it out, to believe, to hold stubbornly on to hope, to see the light even amidst darkness. Love is love. It's the most powerful force in the universe. Let it in.
_
Love starts with yourself. Not by telling yourself platitudes about how great and awesome you are, but really truly recognizing your worth. Love starts when you drop the victim card and pick yourself up and decide to never give up. Love wins when you walk away from drama and stop keeping score. Love is about finally being ready to face yourself, accept yourself, appreciate yourself, stand up for yourself, take care of yourself, be honest with yourself. Love wins with every act of forgiveness and with every hug and with every smile. Love can save the world when you understand how to let it come into your heart and take over your life. πŸ’—

Peace is always a choice. No matter where you are in life, nor what's happening choosing peace is possible. Dramatic highs devastating lows, and intense emotional fluctuations only get worse if you give them attention. Some people aren't addicted to substances, they're addicted to emotions. If drama is all you know, you can actually get attached to it. But, remember peace is always an option. If you can't see the peaceful path, you don't have to move forward. You can just wait until it's revealed to you. Knowing when to act and when to sit quietly is a discipline of the mind and the spirit. This is in essence why we practice, so that you carried the seed of a deep peace that passes all understanding and in your heart. If it doesn't give you rest, if it doesn't give you peace, if it doesn't share love, it's probably not the best choice. Don't rush, let it take the time it takes. Sooner or later you will find your own way to peace. πŸ™

Today is a happier day even though I feel equal parts fragile and strong. Like I woke up to myself, stripped away of the "stuff", just bare, true, with no fuss. Just me. I found myself standing in the sun, smelling the flowers, breathing the air and laughing and smiling again. And here I am walking the path as best I can. All I know is that somewhere along the way I took a step into a territory that isn't where I want to be. Drama, chaos, confusion, tension, hard feelings, harsh judgements, resentment, bitterness, hardened hearts. This is not the world I want to live in. I feel like it's that moment when your GPS recalibrates because you missed the turn. I am recalibrating toward peace, toward ease and flow. The inner world reflects the outer world. If you find yourself surrounded by people that you don't enjoy, the harsh truth is that it's time to take a look in the mirror and point the finger at yourself. If it's always everyone else who is to blame but you're good and square, there's something off. Sometimes we need space to heal, but sometimes the solution is so much simpler than we want to admit. The simplicity of it is what can sometimes seem cold or harsh. But under every stressful problem is an elegant solution. Under every angry person is a hurt and wounded one. Under every hardened heart is someone in need of love. Under the most chaotic life is a yearning for peace. If you want to join me on the other side, I'll be here, focusing on the love, building bridges, offering olive branches and letting the light shine through. The door is open. All you have to do is come with me and walk in the sun, stand in love and turn your gaze to the brilliant blessing of every moment. πŸ™

#currentmood πŸ’” Cheer me up with πŸ’—πŸ˜Š It's too much to explain, too much to write. I honestly just want to stop thinking about it, crying about it and trying to solve it. I am turning it over to God and doing my best to keep the faith. That's all I can do for now. So send me a thousand πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’— so when I sign back on it feels like easy and every one of you is giving me a hug. πŸ’•

Someone said: "I'm only here to ride on Kino's coat tails for as long as I can. Then I'm out." This is quid pro quo to the worst. It's like you don't see the person anymore in this paradigm, it's just about what they can do for you. My mistake was tolerating this kind of behavior and naively thinking that with kindness, patience and love I could gently open the heart and let the light of yoga pour into this person. That was my mistake. And I'm still healing from it.
_
This paradigm of "who are you and what can you do for me" is so two dimensional and it cheapens the whole human experience. I pour my heart and soul into any student I take on, especially ones that work closely with me. To have it thrown in my face with such blatant disregard for basic standards of respect is upsetting. While I see how much that person must have been (and may still be) in pain to be operating from the paradigm, I can't make my peace with the damage done to so many good people in the path of such foolishness. Students got injured, rumors were spread, a community fractured and I was used as a stepping stone. And for what? For yoga? This is where the whole thing just spins around on its axis for me. This is yoga. Let me say that again. YOGA. We are talking about a yogi, a practitioner who gets on the mat with dedication and has a powerful asana practice. So if that's what's inside, I can't say it's yoga. I'm disappointed in myself as a teacher. How could someone I worked so closely with totally not get it? How could they miss the mark of my fundamental teaching, that yoga is a path of light and love and we have to get beyond the pose? Where did I as a teacher go wrong? I'm still processing it all and figuring it all out. I don't have the answers.
_
And yet, despite all this, there's a place in my heart that's ready and open to apology, to embrace true contrition should it ever come. I mean, I'm not holding my breath for it, but I'm prepared to validate a turn towards the light anytime and in anyone. πŸ™

Yesterday I had a difficult talk with someone I love deeply. The most challenging conversations for me are the emotional ones that aren't planned. But really who schedules these things? I guess that's why no one loves to go to couples counseling. Tim and I went for awhile and sometimes we would be happy going in and annoyed at eachother going out. I'm not perfect, sometimes I speak too strongly, and I can be way too definite. I'm also pretty terrible at setting boundaries. I can go down a rabbit hole with someone for a really long time before I wake up and realize that it's crossed a line for me. It's often so far and so long before I get clear and I'm often in so much pain about it that my first reaction is usually a scream, not a quiet reflection. Then, the anger comes. I'm mad at the person I followed even though I did it of my own free will and then I get really mad at myself. And the person I followed is mad at me or at least hurt because they feel abandoned down in their world. The end game is always forgiveness, which is a two way street. And love, which gets stronger if you make it through intense ups and downs. But emotions aren't fair. They suck sometimes. The heart is like a pouty petulant child. What I'm working on is how to say what I've got to say and remain in love, how to take responsibility for my own experience and walk my own path with equal parts love and wisdom. Truth without love can be so harsh. Judgement without forgiveness can be so cruel. Today my prayer is for the softness of forgiveness and the strength of love to win out. πŸ™

But first... let me get a selfie πŸ˜‰Do what you love. Love what you do. Have so much fun so "work" is play. This was the best behind the scenes pic filming for @omstarsofficial yesterday. But really starting OmStars isn't just about making videos. It's about the heart of yoga. By being in the driver seat of the company we get to say what's worthy filming. There's no big executive to tell us that something won't sell. If we believe it needs to be represented we film it. Like my Yoga Sutra Course. I've wanted to present a deeper and more traditional dimension of the yoga path for a long time, but no one wanted to film it. But now it's a course on OmStars because when we have an idea, we just do it! Thank you believing in us and trusting us to be good stewards of the yoga tradition.
_
There's a new episode of my Yoga Sutra Course just out today. Yesterday filmed a bunch of new episodes of my Encyclopedia of Yoga series and new classes for my Yoga Pro Wheel series. Coming soon! All this is only on www.omstars.com so if you're not a subscriber yet, sign up today and get access to over 350 classes with loads more on the way.
