The Yogologist is hitting a nitch in the yoga community. Yogis everywhere are searching for answers and dont know who to turn to with their spiritual questions. Most people that do yoga do not have a spiritual teacher. They do a lot of yoga and real questions are surfacing. We all know that our answers are within, that we just need to get quiet to find the answer but now finally another place to turn for all your inquisitions, both on and off the mat. Move over Dear Abby, the Yogologist is in!
How the Yogologist came into being
When the Yogologist first came into consciousness, it was more of a joke with my friends. How can I really be the Yogologist? I was FAR from a saint! But then the questions started pouring in.
What would the Yogologist do?
The yogologist was a witness consciousness for me. When I found myself in trying situations, I would ask myself the question “What would the yogologist do?” We all have an inner Yogologist ; we feel better when we are in alignment with our higher self whether we know it or not, more aligned with our truth, who we are at our deepest essence.
As it turned out more often than not, the answer to what would the Yogologist do, was that the Yogologist would have never found herself in the situations I was in. The real question became…
Where does the actual choice to misalign begin; to go out of alignment with the inner Yogologist. In yoga it is easy, it usually starts with the feet, you start with the foundation and work your way up.
But these moral and ethical dilemmas were not so easy; much more subtle. Usually by the time you question what do I do now? it is more about damage control. Damage control is good. Pre-Yogologist it was more like, oh well, messed up, too late now. Lets just continue to add insult to injury. And yes, that is one choice which we have freedom to make. But we also get to do it differently. We get to choose over and over to realign with the expansive nature of the self, to turn to the light even amidst shadow, to not make the same mistakes over and over and not indulge in the same repetitive patterns that do not serve us. We have free will and freedom to choose whether it feels like it or not?
Do you have a moral or ethical dilemma? don’t know where to turn? We want to hear it.
