There comes a time when silence is betrayal.
In honor of Dr. King this week, I chose to share this quote because I feel there is too much complacency in the yoga community these days. For the few of us that choose to start the conversation about it, we have been hit with some pretty negative reactions and feelings from those who would prefer to remain in their bubble. Listening to one of Dr. King’s speeches this afternoon reminded me that we live in a country that protects our freedom of speech, yet so few of us choose to enact it.
My friends, when you see something taking place that is immoral, harmful, unethical, or down right a-hole like behavior and you do not speak up you become a part of the problem rather than the solution. It is okay if you opinion doesn’t agree with mine, and it is okay for you and I to disagree as to what the solution might be, but for GAWD’s sake – stop trying to send sunshine up my ass and stop betraying all of us with your silence.
