What is Yoga 308

Life is a constant struggle of balancing our body on both a physical and emotional side. Through yoga I have learned several life lessons. Yoga 308 is a goal I set for myself to do at least 60 minutes of yoga for 6 days a week for the next year. I invite anyone to join me on this adventure as I blog about some of my daily experiences. This is not intended to show that I have found peace and tranquility, but rather give my honest feelings of my journey. Enjoy.

Day 138 - Welcome to the post Apocalypse

The world has ended, yet you are still reading my blog.  What if the world really did end, but there wasn't this apocalyptic event with the earth shaking, flames taking over, or monsters smashing cities?  What if we just looked at the Mayan calender as as the end of the world as we knew it.  Tomorrow when we wake up we are a whole new person?  We can start to make the changes we have been talking about, and start living the life we really want to.

Do we need a crazy comet crashing into earth to do what we always dreamed about doing?  It is so close to a New Year and we always make our resolutions that we never follow, but why even wait until New Years?  Why not wake up the day after the great Mayan Apocalypse and start your new life?  Start that one thing that you have been talking about doing today.  Just do it.

What would you have done today if you really knew the world was going to end the next day?  Would you go to work and make a lot of money?  Would you steal?  Would you eat, drink and have sex all day long?  What would you do, and why?  If the world was ending would we go into survival mode and try to save ourselves and our loved ones?  Would we reach out to strangers and try to help them?  Would we try to save our pets and animals?

My next question is why does this answer change who we are?  If we knew this immediate death situation why would we panic?  We all know the end of the world is coming for each of us in our own time.  We often put off our lives with the need of security that we are safe and secure.  We in a way try to survive, but somehow forget how to live.

I feel more and more to live the life that I want to see in others.  I have rules, morals, and thoughts.  I do not expect others to follow them, but feel I can spread my love, thoughts, and ideas.  The way I want to spread my love is by just living my life.  I want to live a life that I can share and be proud of with people.

I want to live my days after this apocalypse as a changed man.  Someone who embraces love, shows love, and feels love.  Today is my first day as my new self.  I will wake up refreshed and ready to start my post apocalyptic life.
