It’s not about being “liked” by all, I write because I have something to say.
I think of Social Media as my own publication where I get to put out into the world what I think I can offer. I love sharing my thoughts about the postures and this crazy little trip we call life. And then of course I am happy when my message is well received. It’s a tool that I use to build community.
Often I hear from teachers, especially the more senior ones, about their disappointment in modern yoga. And yes, many modern yogis are self-serving and insincere, but as my friend @minaflux often says: “everyone is on their own journey baby.” For me the best practice is to keep my head down and do my own thing. I don’t feel good about myself when I judge others, so I really try not to take my opinions about others too seriously. While I do have my boundaries, I practice hopefulness and open-mindedness.
We are yogis. We are all working on ourselves. Some people need more validation, some people want to make more money and it’s all okay.
