Faith in Humanity

Here are the thoughts from last week’s yoga classes.Faith

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.” -Mahatma Gandhi

We cannot and will not be brought down by other people.  No matter how much someone has tried to hurt us, we will keep having faith in humanity, keep believing that people are innately good, and keep knowing our own inner strength, beauty, and impact.  Humanity is as expansive and beautiful as the ocean.   Everyday moments with those we care about remind us of that truth.  In the quiet moments on your yoga mat or on a trail run, start exploring that truth inside yourself.  Reflect that you have limitless wells of strength and beauty within you. Then reflect that everyone around you has limitless wells of strength and beauty within them.  And therefore, if we but choose to, we’re all tapping into that same infinite depth like an ocean, and we are one, the concept of Namaste.  “You must not lose faith in humanity.”
