Make America Great Again: A Yogi’s Perspective

What makes America great?
What makes America great?

What is America?

America is an ideal, it is a vision, it is a dream. It is the vision that all human beings are created equal and have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

What is being great?

To be great is to shine this ideal to every corner of the planet, to lift and honor the spirit of every human being and exemplify the principle that government is the servant of the people and receives its existence from those governed.

When was America great?

America was great and is great every time she radiates this vision. Each time a human being anywhere on the planet feels joy and hope that life, liberty and happiness are within their reach, or the reach of their children, then America is radiating greatness--and goodness. Inside greatness is goodness. Goodness comes from our heart’s feeling of the interconnectedness and interdependence of all life on the planet.

Who makes what and when? Every single American, from the infant to the aged, from the powerful to the weak, from the wealthiest to the poorest, from the left to the right is making America. How each American thinks, speaks and acts is making America.

A yogi is aware of life’s subtleties and the interconnectedness of all things.

A yogi is conscious of the subtlety of life and the significance of every moment and every living being. The yogi knows that inside each breath, each action and each thought is the possibility of making America great by honoring each human being’s pursuit of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

So yes, let us each do our part to make America great again!
