Occupy Raleigh – meditate at the Capital for a more just society

Occupy Raleigh - the angle from padmasana - hey yoga man

Occupy Raleigh - George Washington approves!

Occupy Raleigh - good energy and people of all ages

Occupy Raleigh - so tiring - whew! - hey yoga man

Occupy Raleigh - so tiring - whew!

I had a very good meditation on the lawn of the Capital building and celebrated the crowd and the day!  It is good to see people asking for a more just society.  We need a society based on the idea that each individual PERSON matters.  That each PERSON is too important to fail.  Our current society is not providing jobs for all at living wages with enough time for individuals to do spiritual development.  Yogic principles give us a baseline for assessing the situation and suggesting improvements.  Many of the sentiments being expressed by the protesters are fully in line with yogic principles.  I look forward to a long occupation and will get out the word on classes, meditations, and workshops at the occupation soon.
