At awards shows, victories are celebrated with impassioned speeches. Matthew McConaughey’s have set a new standard.
Here’s a yoga victory speech from another M.M.
First, gotta praise Jesus
and Buddha and Yahweh! Three—count
wise gurus who’ve inspired me with
every Ujjayi breath!
And to my parents,
for passing on their genes—Mom, Pop,
I felt you in my quivering thighs,
the journey of my sweat!
Of course, my wife—
without whom I’d never have the confidence
to fall on my face and not care!
Honey, you never flinched when I came home
with those bloody noses—We did it babe!
Papa’s got a brand new pose—woooo!
No proper nutrition—no liftoff!
A shout out to my chef Jack In The Box!
Dude, you make my burgers and
you make me laugh!
And above all—my yoga teachers!
In the dark days you said,
Lean forward more.
And things I still don’t get
like Breathe into the landscape
of your inner being.
It worked! Deep bow!
I share this humbling moment
with all my fellow Yogis!
As always: CAW!
Continue. Awakening. World.
