As the assault of modernity reaches deep into the longest held traditions, the life of the WarYogin is a silent revolution against the modern world.
The modern world fosters a crass consumerist culture, driven by obnoxious self-serving influencers and celebrities. The vacuity of the lifestyle propounded through them by their corporate overlords is hollow and destructive. It leads only to a place of personal crisis that leaves its victims empty and unfulfilled at best.
The path of WarYoga is a silent revolution against this mode of living. The WarYogin understands that the cure for the disease that plagues almost every corner of the earth is not political. It is not protest. It is not social action. He quietly goes about his work, modelling his way for others to see, embodying his philosophy, not evangelising with rhetoric.
He rejects toxic foods, intoxicants and lifestyles. He pays no attention to any media intended to elicit emotional responses. He trusts his inner measure, closing his senses to the assailants waiting at every turn to influence his character for the worse.
This is his silent revolution
He walks through the world, while being alien to it. He operates in society, but rejects much of what it is selling. He strengthens his body and mind, yoking them together to create an adamantine vehicle for the Self to attain transcendence.
His is a silent revolution, one that does not purposely draw attention to itself in order to gain fame or notoriety. He simply goes about his business, working on himself, improving that which he has control over, not worrying about that which he cannot control.
Pat Horinawa says
Yes. All of this.
I love this! Thank you. It helped me out this morning. I was in a such a nasty mood. Be well!
