Brother, stand the pain. Escape the poison of your impulses. The sky will bow to your beauty, if you do. Learn to light the candle. Rise with the sun. Turn away from the cave of your sleeping. That way a thorn expands to a rose.

Anonymous asked:
Do you think debates on whether or not yoga is cultural appropriation or if white people should never practice or learn from Buddhist principles are misguided? I definitely believe there are aspects of yoga that have been polluted in the west, but not in a way that means every white person is doing yoga for the wrong reasons. After all, corruption is everywhere. It may manifest differently but it is corruption all the same.



There is no such thing as cultural appropriation. Meditation is an ancient tradition in the west too. If you use “white person” in a post like this then it is you that is the problem not the soccer mom on the mat at the YWCA. Ideas belong to the world. Useful ideas spread and useless ideas fade. 

Who is teaching this? Who wants us to be divided? Seek an answer to this and you will find someone pulling the strings for their own selfish interests.

We must unite as one human race or perish.
