THE INTERFAITH MINISTRY OF NEW YORK CITY

To be conscious and aware of our actions is a worthwhile aspiration. Most human beings develop consciousness through trial and error. Hopefully. Going to church seems to be, for many, similar to an insurance policy for the soul. If they go to church their soul is covered.

So, the soul belongs to the church or other spiritual community.The body to the doctor, insurance company and government. Money to the bank, broker and government. The schools are responsible for children being disciplined  and educated. In many instances none of these institutions encourage building personal responsibility, even if they say they do.

It is very much the same in the Yoga Community. People who teach yoga are very often not as evolved as people might like to imagine. This is true on every level of yoga leadership. Different kinds of yoga practices thumb their nose at others. Kind of crazily antithetical to the meaning of yoga, which is union.

Unfortunately, there is a feeling of superiority that many organizations create among their ranks. There is much good done by many of them, despite their arrogance. Separation is not inclusion and most religions do not seem to be about unity. Maybe on paper, but not in action.

In the end, or what seems like the end, we are all responsible for our own body and spirit. Most religions  give a spoken or unspoken body soul guarantee. Catholic confession is one aspect of that idea.

The Interfaith Ministry in NYC link here is a spiritual and religious door that is  open to creating unity, and open minded change. There are others, but this is one I am somewhat familiar with and grateful to have known.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
