What is a "kick-butt yogi"?

Carol Falcone

Everything Sally Kempton writes is so clear to me, Thank you


cant find "live and be enlightend" at the end of this article , as suggested in this article.


WINSTON: there's another article called "Do It Yourself" by the same author--you'll find it listed under the link to "all philosophy articles


Could you help me to understand what you are referring to in the artcile with - (To experience this yourself, try the practices in "Do It Yourself".)
I am grateful for the wisdom you so eloquently share ... !!!


Love the "to the core" of the article. My way of dealing with situations that have a negative quality about them is to remind myself to step back, take a hard look and say to myself - don't fight with reality!

I have noticed myself that when you let go of having it your way and wanting to force your way to people around you, a stress is created and you feel this uneasyness within you and even though you feel this, you hold it. Once you let go, you feel the delivery, the freedom of not hanging on to this. Why we do this, we can talk for hours because we all know there is a struggle withing us for some reason or another and we have to make our way through all this. Yoga has made me realize that by detatching and letting go of negative feelings and wanting good and trying to want good even for those that have hurt us is real freedom!

excellent article...Thanks.

I am really touched about the article & personal experience of enlightnment.If we really believe from the heart & do inner prayer with sincerity & love,we see the Inner Light,the light of Higher power,which show you the direction during your dark days,when no one else is there to help us. I was born & raised in india,in each house hold,early morning prayer or puja is must,i got lost agter marriage & always felt no time for prayers, suffered lot of hardships in life & when i fellt no doctor could even help my sick daughter,who developed Menigitis & was on the death bed,prayers & prayers redirected me to Self Realisation Fellowship & kundalini yoga,hence,Guru Nanak dev ji,my religious Guru from sikh religon enlighten my life,during my deep crying sleep & little by little our daughter started feeling better & today our daughter is pediatric Anesthisiologist ,practicing children hospital at Sandiego,Ca.In my heart,God or higher power is everything & to see the light one must search inside..Blessings. Namaste.Veena grover.
I always enjoy reading your articles. THanks.
