Thank you to everyone who came to practice with me today. This afternoon I was able to send £40 to @yogastopstraffick to help support the incredible work they do for victims of human trafficking in south India.
Opening our eyes to these unimaginably awful stories is painful. There is so much sadness in the world, how can we be aware of it without letting it totally overwhelm us. I don't really know the answer to that.
The trauma we see in the world should wake us up and call us to action. But often it seems we are numb to it. We go online and can flick between reading the horror stories of news headlines and then switch a tab to black friday deals. Which tab are we more comfortable with, which one is easier to act upon...
Whilst we can't put an end to all suffering, if today we helped one child, then that is everything to them. So thank you for practicing, there are sooo many ways to spend your hard earned money. So on a day when it seems everyone is vying for our money, thank you for putting yours somewhere worthwhile.
