Indian Inmates Take Yoga Classes To Reduce Jail Time


In Indian prisons, the lotus position can truly help set you free.

According to the BBC, inmates in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh are being freed early if they complete courses in yoga. The deal is as follows: for every 3 months a prisoner spends practicing yoga, he or she will cut their jail time by 15 days.

A state inspector general of prisons tells AFP: "Yoga is good for maintaining fitness, calming the behaviour, controlling anger and reducing stress."

According to the Telegraph, one prisoner reported that his anger had subsided since taking up the practice, and that he plan to become a yoga teacher. After, that is, he's released.

I got to eat lunch with Marko and then go to recess last week
and play four square with Marko and his friends.

Those are the real joys in life!!!



"I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing

than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance"

-E.E. Cummings

It's all good

We went on a mini trip to the Mall of America.
Not my usual kind of trip.....I prefer going camping or going to Omega Institute
for a yoga retreat, but it ended up being really fun.......where ever you go, there you are :)

I hope you enjoy the quote below.


"You have at least a million relatives as close as tenth cousin,
and no one on Earth is any further removed than your fiftieth cousin."
--Guy Murchie, *The Seven Mysteries of Life*

Murchie also
describes our kinship through an analysis of how deeply we share the air. "With each breath, you take into your body 10 sextillion atoms, and
owing to the wind's ceaseless circulation -- over a year's time you have intimate relations with oxygen molecules exhaled by every person alive,
well as by everyone who ever lived."

Marko took this picture on our back porch and I thought it looked pretty cool!!
I hope you enjoy the words below!!!
On the surface of the world right now
there is
war and violence and things seem dark.
But calmly and quietly, at the same time,

something else is happening underground

An inner revolution is taking place

and certain individuals are being called to a higher light.
It is a silent revolution.

From the inside out.
From the ground up.

This is a Global operation.

A Spiritual Conspiracy.

There are sleeper cells in every nation on the planet.

You wont see us on the T.V.

You wont read about us in the newspaper

You wont hear about us on the radio

We don’t seek any glory

We don’t wear any uniform

We come in all shapes and sizes, colors and styles

Most of us work anonymously

We are quietly working behind the scenes
in every country
and culture of the world

Cities big and small, mountains and valleys,
in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands
You could pass by one of us on the street and not even notice

We go undercover

We remain behind the scenes

It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit

But simply that the work gets done

Occasionally we spot each other in the street

We give a quiet nod and continue on our way

During the day many of us pretend we have normal jobs

But behind the false storefront at night

is where the real work takes a place

Some call us the Conscious Army
We are slowly creating a new world

with the power of our minds and hearts

We follow, with passion and joy

Our orders come from from the Central Spiritual Intelligence

We are dropping soft, secret love bombs
when no one is looking

Poems ~ Hugs ~
Music ~ Photography ~
Movies ~ Kind words ~
Smiles ~
Meditation and prayer ~ Dance ~
Social activism ~ Websites ~
Blogs ~ Random acts of kindness…

We each express ourselves in our own unique ways

with our own unique gifts and talents

Be the change you choose to see in the world

That is the motto that fills our hearts

We know it is the only way real transformation takes place
We know that quietly
and humbly we have the
power of all the oceans combined
Our work is slow and meticulous

Like the formation of mountains

It is not even visible at first glance

And yet with it entire tectonic plates
shall be moved
in the centuries to come

Love is the new religion of the 21st century

You don’t have to be a highly educated person

Or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it

It comes from the intelligence of the heart
Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings

Be the change you choose to see in the world

Nobody else can do it for you
We are now recruiting
Perhaps you will join us
Or already have.
All are welcome

The door is open.

we have come to our real work,
And that when we no longer know which way to go we have come to our real journey."
