  1. To me, watching/listening to this video was like mind yoga. Glad you liked it, Allie :)

  2. Great video, but not a very new idea!

    …the wise
    are free of attachments, and act
    for the well-being of the whole world. (Bhagavad Gita 3.25)

    Mature in yoga, impartial
    everywhere that he looks,
    he sees himself in all beings
    and all beings in himself. (BG 6.29)

    When he sees all beings as equal
    in suffering or in joy
    because they are like himself,
    that man has grown perfect in yoga. (BG 6.32)
