So I have been trying to balance the need to know what is happening in the world with the need to run and put my head under a pillow not least because I have two small people who have no idea what a scary shit pit the world is currently pretending to be.
I am not naturally the world’s most positive person, but this does not mean that I am willing to descend into the pit of despair which on offer.
If there is one thing that yoga has taught me over the years it is to be present. Now and forever. Even with the uncomfortable, awkward truths, that just keep coming like a grand-dad’s Christmas day farts.
There is no way out, this is it people, this our world right now and if we are going to change it into the one we want to see, then we will have to start right here, we US!

Anger leads to bewilderment, from bewilderment comes loss of memory; and by that the intelligence is destroyed; from destruction of intelligence he perishes. He who regards this (the soul) as a slayer, and he who thinks it is slain, both of them fail to perceive the truth. It does not slay, nor is it slain. One whose intelligence has attained to unity, casts away – even here in this world of dualities – both good doing and evil doing. Therefore strive to be in Yoga; Yoga is skill in works. – Bhagavad Gita
