Out of the Fire 11:11 1/11/11

Out of the fire our future will be written and all who have forgotten or who have been in fear to stand up for what is good and right about us; like ethics, humanity, collective consciousness and the truth that all beings should have the right to pursue Happiness. These people who ignore the responsibility to think in… Terms of the next 7 generations into the future rather than a 24 hour news cycle or a business quarter will have missed the opportunity to suck all the juice out of the fruit of living and being here now! We are at a crossroad and I hope we carefully consider the road not taken!

“And once we have the condition of peace and joy in us, we can afford to be in any situation. Even in the situation of hell, we will be able to contribute our peace and serenity. The most important thing is for each of us to have some freedom in our heart, some stability in our heart, some peace in our heart. Only then will we be able to relieve the suffering around us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

“Cowardice asks the question, Is it safe? Expediency asks the question, Is it politic? Vanity asks the question, Is it popular? But conscience asks the question, Is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it becaus…e his conscience tells him that it is right.”
~DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

Actions to Take:

PLEASE CALL & WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMAN, SENATOR & PRESIDENT DEMANDING CRIMINAL CHARGES FOR THE TOP LEVEL OF EXECUTIVES… INDICTMENTS NOW!!!

THE ONLY WAY TO PREVENT THIS IN THE FUTURE IS TO LOCK THESE BP MAFFIA GUYS UP… ANYTHING ELSE IS MEANINGLESS TO PEOPLE WHO ARE SO RICH AND BELIEVE THEMSELVES ENTITLED! IF WE DON’T THE GREED OF MULTINATIONAL COMPANIES WILL RAPE US UNTIL THERE IS NO MORE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. WE WILL ALL BE ENSLAVED TO THE OIL COMPANIES, BANKS, WALLSTREET ETC.

Dear Mr. President you are losing the people who put you in office

Dear Mr. President,
sent to http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/

Your presidency of, by and for the people; is quickly slipping away and it is your own fault for becoming a centrist instead of representing the people who elected you… You get a salary and many of us out here have no clue how we will afford the rest of you lives. Main Street is headed for disaster. After bailing out Wall Street there is a big question every time Unemployment benefits need to be renewed and after 99 weeks we are only left to welfare while you and big business continue to receive you paycheck like clockwork at our expense.

It would seem that you have become a corporatist and have abandoned Main Street … what a shame we had such hope for change and you have not lived up to your contract with us, your constituency.

How sad that you have no balls to make things right. Look you have even alienated James Carville and that is a big statement in itself…

IMHO you have changed from a Statesmen to a simple self serving Politician. How sad that you don’t live the words that you say and as a result of that all of us on Main Street continue to suffer… I held such hope for your presidency and it saddens me to see it fall apart based on your lack of authenticity and your inability to follow through on your promises.

In Sadness,

Arthur Klein

Yoga & Meditation Relief in Haiti

Today in my meditation i had an epiphany about equanimity through yoga & meditation, which led to the following vision:

Yoga and meditation integrated into the rebuilding of Haiti.  There is probably no place in the Universe or on our planet that could use these technologies more.  This could be a amazing tool as Haiti finds itself as a nation again and as Haitians find themselves again.

So given this intention i would like to know who out there would be interested in participating in a program to bring yoga to Haiti during the rebuilding process… Please let me know if you would like to get involved in any of the following ways or ways i have yet to imagine.

  1. Actually spend time in Haiti teaching yoga and teaching locals to teach yoga and meditation for after we are gone.
  2. The public relations of this humanitarian yogic initiative
  3. The funding part of this equation of course there will need to be support from our tribe.
  4. Holding this intention with love and light in your hearts.  Sending the energy of success in this intention.

I know in my heart after the physical injury have been treated and the rebuilding has begun Haiti will be the perfect place to embrace yoga and medition. This is an opportunity of Spirit…  Please join me and lets be the change WE can believe in.

Today is the first day i have been proud to be an American in a long time and it feels great.

in love light & peace,
Arthur

99 Club: a question of happiness

DVD available at http://www.yyogamovie.com/store/page22.html

YYM Still Frame: Ghandi in Union Square Park, Manhattan NY

An age old concept called “The 99 Club” that explores a secret of being happy!  Thank you Nithya Shanti for bringing this to my attention:

The 99 Club

Long ago, there lived a King. This King should have been content with his life, given all the riches and luxuries he had. However, this was not the case! The King always found himself wondering why he just never seemed content with his life. Sure, he had the attention of everyone wherever he went, attended fancy dinners and parties, but somehow, he still felt something was lacking and he couldn’t put his finger on it.

One day, the King had woken up earlier than usual and decided to stroll around his palace. He entered his huge living room and came to a stop when he heard someone happily singing away… following this singing…he saw that one of the servants was singing and had a very content look on his face.

This fascinated the King and he summoned this man to his chambers. The man, his servant, entered the King’s chambers as ordered. The King asked why he was so happy? To this the man replied: “Your Majesty, I am nothing but a servant, but I make enough of a living to keep my wife and children happy. We don’t need too much, a roof over our head and warm food to fill our tummy. My wife and children my inspiration, they are content with whatever little I bring home. I am happy because my family is happy.”

Hearing this, the King dismissed the servant and summoned his Wise Minister to his chambers.

The King related his personal anguish about his feelings and then related the story of the servant to his Wise Minister, hoping that somehow, he will be able to come up with some reasoning that here was a King who could have anything he wished for at a snap of his fingers and yet was not contended, whereas, his servant, having so little was extremely contended.

The Wise Minister listened attentively and come to a conclusion. He said “Your Majesty, I believe that the servant has not been made part of The 99 Club.” “The 99 Club? And what exactly is that?” the King inquired. To which the Minister replied, “Your Majesty, to truly know what The 99 Club is, you will have to do the following… place 99 Gold Coins in a bag and leave it at this servant’s doorstep, you will then understand what The 99 Club is.”

That very same evening, the King arranged for 99 Gold coins to be placed in bag at the servant’s doorstep. Although he was slightly hesitant and he thought he should have put 100 Gold Coins in the bag, but since his assistant had advised him to put 99 that is what he did.

The servant was just stepping out of his house when he saw a bag at his doorstep. Wondering about its contents, he took it into his house and opened the bag. When he opened the bag he let out a great big shout of joy…Gold Coins…so many of them. He could hardly believe it. He called his wife to show her the coins and they were besides themselves. He then took the bag to a table and emptied it out and began to count the coins. Doing so, he realized that there were 99 coins and he thought it was an odd number so he counted again, and again and again only to come to the same conclusion…99 Gold Coins.

He began to wonder, what could have happened to that last 1 coin? For no one would leave 99 coins. He began to search his entire house, looked around his backyard for hours, not wanting to lose out on that one coin. Finally, exhausted, he decided that he was going to have to work harder than ever to make up for that 1 Gold coin to make his entire collection an even 100 Gold Coins. He got up the next morning, in an extremely horrible mood, shouting at the children and his wife for his delay, not realizing that he had spent most of the night up conjuring ways of working hard so that he had enough money to buy himself that gold coin. He went to work as usual only not in his usual best mood, singing happily and whistling all day. He didn’t even seem to notice that the King was watching him as he grumpily did his daily errands.

Seeing the man’s attitude change so drastically, the King was puzzled. He promptly summoned his Wise Minister to his chambers. The King related his thoughts about the servant and once again, his assistant listened. The King could not believe that the servant who until yesterday had been singing away and was happy and content with his life had taken a sudden change of attitude, even though he should have been happier after receiving the gold coins.

To this the Wise Minister replied “Ah but your Majesty, the servant has now officially joined The 99 Club.” He explained: “The 99 Club is just a name given to those people who have everything but yet are never content, therefore they are always working hard and striving for that extra 1 to round it out to 100! We have so much to be thankful for and we can live with very little in our lives, but the minute we are given something bigger and better, we want even more! We are not the same happy contented person we used to be, we want more and more and by wanting more and more we don’t realize the price we pay for it. We lose our sleep, our happiness; we hurt the people around us just as a price to pay for our growing needs and desires. That is what joining The 99 Club is all about.”

Hearing this the King decided that from that day onwards, he was going to start appreciating all the little things in life. Striving for more is always good, but lets not strive so hard and for so much that we lose all those near and dear to our heart, we shouldn’t compromise our happiness for moments of luxuries!

As We Flush the Toilet on the Bush Cheney Legacy…

Y Yoga Movie Production Still of Earth from Apollo

As we flush the Toilet from the last 8 Years of the Bush Administration please consider the following thought from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Cowardice asks the question, Is it safe? Expediency asks the question, Is it politic? Vanity asks the question, Is it popular? But conscience asks the question, Is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him that it is right.”

Love, Life & Peace as we toast a new day dawning!!!
