How A Yogi Takes A Selfie

how a Yogi takes a selfie:

stop. renounce sight

welcome this one breath like it is your first

and may be your last

let it bring you to now

…and bring you to know

how are you

how are you not

who are you

who are you not

why are you

why are you not

what you stand for

what would you not stand for

allow self to be reduced to…

what you love ~ and serve that

enough #manipura

away the camera

your majesty cannot be measured in likes

only by the ripples of your heart offerings…

may all beings be happy and free

om shanti

About the Author:

Namaste. I've been practicing and teaching Peace, Yoga, and Mindful living for many years. What comes out in class is from decades of going inwards. I love sharing what is rising in my practice and my day to day life of noticing more about this incredible world we live in. Peace -j

    I hope that many see this, but that it gets no likes. I hope that
    we reach peak-selfie soon and the hype can subside and we can return to our peaceful quiet practice of Yoga. Peace, -john

    Well said, especially about knowing thyself and who you are not, reducing yourself to what you love. Very freeing. Thank you.
