ul·ti·mate: the best achievable or imaginable of its kind
Something has been brewing inside of me for a while. I’ve been feeling this inner call to write a blog of inspiration. Being a yoga and meditation instructor, I’ve always done my best to bring inspiration into my practices. As great as the physical poses are, there is so much more than that. In fact, the things that have the potential to change lives are powerful quotes, poems, and stories. Since the dawn of human kind, stories have been used as way to take people on journey. These are journeys that take us from the ordinary into the extraordinary. They have the potential to inspire wisdom, joy, and goodness.
Right now, on the planet, humanity is facing challenges on all levels. There is continuing warfare, racism, climate change and much more. No doubt, these are tough times. But I believe although we might have different ethnicities, nationalities, religious beliefs, and histories that we are much more united than we are divided. By coming back to what unites us, we come back to a deeper understanding. It is this understanding and wisdom that provides us a light. This illumination is our hope to minimize the great sufferings of the world and increase our natural birthright of joy and happiness.
To change the outer world, we must start by changing our inner world. Outer technology like computers, space craft, and modern medicine are making rapid advancements but we can’t count on them to save us. Nothing will save humanity unless we advance our inner technologies of the mind and heart. In the yogic tradition, the mind and the heart are the same. And when you transform your mind you transform your life. Then, when you transform your life that also transforms your family, your community, your country, and eventually the entire world. Inside of you, you have the potential to change the world. It all starts within your Inner Domain. Therefore, I’ve decided to call this blog “Ultimate Mind/Ultimate Life.”
My intention for writing this blog is to provide you weekly inspiration where we celebrate an uplifting quote, short commentary, and a takeaway tip for the upcoming week. If you find this material to be helpful I invite you to share it with your community. My intention is to inspire millions of people to live their Ultimate life through this blog.
It is an honor to share this path with you!
