Since the day I started sharing & teaching Yoga, it has taken me to a beautiful journey within. Every time I sit on the mat in a session, I experience a deep silence within me and within all participants too. I don’t know if I am sharing my learning or they are opening themselves to allow me to share, or rather, they are sharing a part of their being with me. What I experience is the collective silence, togetherness and deepening. May be this is the essence of Yoga, may be Yoga is allowing all this to happen or may be Yoga itself has started unfolding. Till we know it, the journey continues…
Thank you once again for coming and creating this space where I could be with you all, learn and just be.

The silence of leadership at any level is often a proof or a sign of approval. Those who take pleasure in keeping silent when they ought to speak up often strengthen the ways of evil men operating under the canvas of darkness.
A close look at the story of Jesus, during the season of his arrest and trial reveals a truth that further buttress the need to speak up. Jesus did not say anything during his trial because his death had been concluded before his arrival on earth.
If Jesus had spoken up, he would have truncated divine agenda - which had his death and resurrection as a focal point.
Jesus had to be silent, to allow the process to go on, so that divine agenda could be actualized.
Isaiah 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
Why did this happen? This is because the agenda was for Jesus to die for the sins of mankind.
But the Jesus, when he saw people buying and selling in the temple, vehemently spoke up and took action against the money changers. Whatever you don't want, you don't watch.
So, if you are a leader and certain abnormalities keeps gaining ground under your watch, and you keep mute, it goes to show that whatever might be going has your direct or indirect approval - a product of a hidden agenda.
The only way to stop the insecurities, corruption, nepotism, and all the illegalities that litter our political and economic landscape in Nigeria and other African Nations would step from good men and courageous leaders speaking up with truth and standing up for the truth.
Just thinking politically this morning. Say a sincere prayer for your nation today. Nigeria shall not tow the path of war. The lord would give our leaders the heart of flesh. Have a wordspired day.
