Yoga teaches me that there is inspiration to be found in many places - even in Rick Ross!
We were in warrior one, arms in reverse namaste with sweat running down our arms, when cosmically my playlist shuffled to the words chanted like mantra “eryday I’m hustlin’ hustlin’, hustlin’ hustlin. Eryday I’m hustlin’.” I cringed a bit, knowing the following verses contained expletives not fit for a yoga class. And then the class reacted in a completely unexpected way - the entire room resounded in buoyant laughter!
Where there were once creased brows and tight jaws were now beaming smiles and relaxed faces. Maybe it was the juxtaposition of Desert Dwellers against Ross’ big bass vocals or the resonance with the reality of the everyday hustle; but the right song played at the right time and transformed serious energy into universal laughter.
Inspiration is all around us. It’s in the song or story on the radio, the hand-wave from our neighbor, the temperature of our surroundings. The art of living is the art of opening ourselves up and embracing the magical inspiration always present around us. Thank you for the inspiration Rick!
