Daily Question: Can mutual respect heal the world?
Is it possible?
“Be modest, be respectful of others, try to understand.”
– Lakhdar Brahimi
Today’s Intention: Respect
Right now, I’d like to talk a little about ‘respect,’ but first I’d like to define it.
1. An act of giving…special reverence or attention.
I’d like to add …’giving to everyone, equally.’
Everyone is on their path; as we are all souls, in bodies…
Some of these souls have simply been buried under difficult lives, so these concepts of respect and soul, for instance, have been difficult to accept, for some.
I mean, why should I, for instance, respect someone whom I consider greedy, judgmental, disconnected, fake, dangerous, ridiculous, or untrustworthy?
Because, they’re on their path, and their path is valid, in my opinion.
Personally, I think mutual respect can heal the world, or ~ at the very least make the world a more pleasant place to live.
So, today, I’m gonna ask myself:
What’s it gonna take for me to respect this person…?
What does respect look like? Or I will simply say,
I respect this person, or process…
Then, see what unfolds…
Insight: I believe our “soul” purpose is to evolve as human beings.
And I think people evolve at different rates and we’re at different levels…
No one “level” is better than the other…as no person is better than another.
After Class…and a meditation, which I did first.
Pushing my flat hand onto my heart was especially warm and comforting, today.
And the healing meditation I did today, also, was wonderful. During it, I was able to create a “healing space” for myself, an imaginary place (?), which was, and is truly awesome ~
As for the daily question…
Can mutual respect heal the world? And what does it take…?

Imagine what could happened if we all focused on the intention this week! The purpose of focusing on an intention, or question is to practice it, so it can be called upon always and forever.
Remember, everyone is on their own path at their own pace, and we all have the same value. Also, while examining the intention and answering the question, make sure you’re not hurting yourself or anyone else.
Please practice yoga safely, and pause or stop when you need to pause or stop. Listen to your body! Also, please consult a doctor before engaging in the practice of yoga. The Yoga Book blog, it’s affiliates, etc. do not take any responsibility for injuries, actions etc. which may occur as a result of doing yoga, focusing on the question/intention, or doing “Today’s Class.” Also, The Yoga Book blog is not intended to be a substitute for professional help.

…And we all need a little help, sometimes 🙂
The Yoga Book
“The idea for The Yoga Book came to me in a yoga class! I saw it clearly in my mind and I needed somewhere to write it down. Also, I had recently met with a Indian medical doctor, who had said “Different styles of yoga effect people differently, so it is important to know which ‘style of yoga’ is right for you.” So, I decided to create a book, where people could journal about their experiences in a yoga class, write about the different postures – how they felt, get inspired, and write about their insights… Sometimes I would come to class with a problem, any problem, and leave with a solution! And when I did, I’d write it down somewhere, so I decided to create The Yoga Book.”
