Introducing the McYoga Sutras!

A new year means I must find something new to be irreverent about.  Beginning in January, I have partnered with Recovering Yogi on a monthly series entitled The McYoga Sutras.  This is meant to be a guide for all of those aspiring to attain the coveted Rock Star Yogi Status.  Read On……

The McYoga Sutras, Chapter 1: Self Absorption

Published on January 4, 2012 by      
Herein lies The McYoga Sutras, a four-chapter treatise, providing you, student, with the keys to enlightenment. Or at least the outward appearance of it, which is all that ever matters anyway.  These four chapters, deliberately curated to render you an expert in under 200 hours (Yoga Alliance-certified!) are:  Self AbsorptionThe Eight Limbs of McYogaMcYoga Economics and Becoming Extraordinary
This jewel is being offered to you for a mere $120 per month, by the leaders of the Cult of the Self-Absorbed, Judgmental and the Obnoxious so that we may continue to fund our daily alcohol and opium rations, while spiritualizing your hypochondria, as our trust funds have now run out and we have been told to get real jobs.  If you, too, lack any sort of professional or social skills, then please join the movement to avoid personal suffering and accountability, at all costs, while touting your path towards enlightenment to anyone bored enough with their own lives to listen to your overt story of denial.
Part 1: Self Absorption
1.1   Now begins the study and practice of McYoga
1.2   McYoga is merely for physical fitness and a means of manifesting money
1.3   The goal of McYoga is never spiritual, period, this is called self absorption
1.4   McYoga’s purpose is to teach the practitioner how to achieve self absorption and that self identity is an illusion to be overcome.
1.5   At other times, when one is not self absorbed, the follower appears to take on the form of five modifications to conjure the mentality within the McYoga clique
1.6   These five modifications manifest as misconception, gossip, detachment, narcissism, and allegiance
1.7   Misconception is an illusionary knowledge that attending a McYoga studio will help the practitioner live an extraordinary life
1.8   Gossip is the spread of false rumors about those who are “off our path” to the standardization of the physical practice
1.9   The practitioner will partake in smoking various plants from the earth to become firmly rooted in complete detachment from reality in order to enjoy attending mind-numbing raves, aka “yoga festivals”
1.10 Narcissism is achieved when the practitioner realizes detachment from others will leave one completely fixated on his/her self
1.11 Allegiance is complete when the practitioner swears loyalty to McYoga as their sole provider of all forms of physical fitness and spends their income on a monthly membership, worthless trainings, mediocre lifestyle programs, and investing in future McYoga locations
1.12 These personality modifications will be mastered through practice and aversion
1.13 McYoga makes it easy to practice 2-3 times daily now that we have 50+ locations open in the US (and another 50 slated to open this year)
1.14 Aversion is realized when one believes that they because they subscribe to McYoga, they have somehow become a better person, all the while behaving like an egomaniacal, judgmental prick
1.15 From that practice, obstacles to successful aversion begin to disappear
1.16 These obstacles are awareness, wise knowledge, empathy, humility, wise action, and honor
1.17 Accompanying these obstacles are frustration, amnesia, judgments, restlessness, disease and injury
1.18 In order to prevent these obstacles from arising, one should habituate themselves in the teaching of McYoga
1.19 By cultivating attitudes of indifference toward suffering, denial toward truth, indulgence toward vice, and anger toward others, the obstacles can be lessened
1.20 Another way to McYoga is the mastery of ignorance
1.21 Without reflection, ignorance is bliss
1.22 Without reflection, the practitioner remains in a state of ignorance to varying degrees
1.23 McYoga is born through the repression of awareness and all individuality is lost

Now that you have a better understanding of what McYoga is, the next phase to joining the Cult is to follow our simple 8-step program in Chapter 2: Eight Limbs of McYoga.
