Philosophy: Unity

Why I Think Obama’s Win is a Yogic Step Forward

Okay, I admit it. I’m no political aficionado. Ask me the details on Obama’s political platform, and I won’t be able to tell you. In fact, I’d rather not talk politics at all. So why am I thrilled he’ll be the new pres? Because 40 years ago Martin Luther King was assassinated, and yesterday a black man became the new president-elect.

Because I see this as proof that the foundation of yoga–unity–will heal this world.

“As an African-American, I’m especially proud…You just know that Americans are not going to be satisfied until they really do form that perfect union.” Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, on yesterday’s election results.

Do I think we can save the world through yoga? Yes, we can.
