This morning I woke up with a strong feeling of motivation. As usual, after a shower and a shave, I sat in siddhasana with the intention to get closer to that stirring feeling within. I let my mind fade gradually away by allowing my breath to diffuse in my tummy as I inhaled and as I exhaled I let my shoulders. arms and wrists drop.

Remember that behind the clouds and a storm, a beautifully serene, deep and unchanged blue sky exists.
The Obama Administration has asked the "Evolutionary Leaders" to communicate about what is transpiring on the planet, and how we can change the course of the unprecedented events that are challenging this planet. This is a window of opportunity for this information to be conveyed to the Obama Administration.
The Evolutionary Leaders like Deepak Chopra, Gregg Braden, Michael Beckwith and many, many others, gathered together to write up the
information to present to the Obama Administration. They are also asking us to sign a petition to show the Administration how many people are in favor for these changes to occur. They need 10,000 signatures. We need your help to reach that number and beyond! Below is the information presented to the New Administration.

By the Evolutionary Leaders
The human family is in the midst of the most significant transformation of consciousness since its emergence in
Africaover one hundred thousand years ago. Consciousness has been evolving for billions of years from the first cell to us. We are becoming aware that through our own consciousness the universe can know itself. This awareness reveals incredible new potential for our individual and collective humanity.
Simultaneously, we are the first species on this Earth aware that we can destroy ourselves by our own action. This may be the greatest wake-up call to the evolution of consciousness since the origin of Homo Sapiens. We now realize that we are affecting our own evolution by everything we do. This knowledge awakens in us the aspiration to become more conscious through subjective practices including meditation, reflection, prayer, intuition, creativity, and conscious choice making that accelerate our evolution in the direction of unity consciousness and inspire us to deeply align our collective vision.
At this juncture in human history, urgent global crises challenge us to learn to live sustainably, in harmony and gratitude with one another and with the living universe. The changes required of humanity are broad, deep, and far reaching. Only by acting swiftly and creatively can we birth a planetary culture that will bring well-being to every form of life in the Earth community. The good news is that a compelling new story of our potential as a whole human species is emerging-a story of collaboration, citizenaction, dialogue and new understandings propelled by unprecedented levels of democratic freedom, multicultural exchange, and access tocommunication technologies. It is nothing less than the story of our
OPPORTUNITIES FOR ACTION
We recognize that the inner and outer aspects of life evolve together. A dramatic awakening in consciousness will involve an equally dramaticshift in outward aspects of our lives. In particular, we see the following as vital opportunities for our conscious evolution, both personally and collectively:
Cultivating a Paradigm of Aliveness:We regard the universe as deeply alive and conscious by nature. In a living universe, our sense of subtleconnection and participation with life around us is the basis for a compassionate and cooperative approach to living.
Educating for an Evolving Consciousness:Awakening consciousness is the foundation for all the change we seek to see in the world. We can work to elevate our capacity for conscious reflection and creative action in our personal lives as well as our collective lives as communities. We must support research and educational strategies that optimize human capacities and explore the nature of consciousness.
Restoring Ecological Balance:The balance of planetary ecosystems isfundamental to our survival. We must reverse the pollution of our global commons-the water, air and soil that nourish all life. We must encourage the proliferation of clean, renewable energy sources and expend all necessary resources toward mitigating the effects of climate change.
Encouraging Conscious Media:We must find innovative ways to use thenew electronic media as the mirror of our positive evolutionary story,investing in their capacity to reach across differences of generation,culture, religion, wealth, and gender to build a working consensus about our collective future.
Engaging in Social and Political Transformation:More sustainable waysof living will require the support of a more conscious democracy andvibrant civil society from which more enlightened leaders will emerge.All individuals should be encouraged to use their gifts to createparticipatory, responsible and compassionate models of governance.
Working for Integrity in Commerce:Conscious businesses that are awareof the scope, depth, and long-range impacts of their actions are key to achieving sustainability.. Business must become an ethical steward of the Earth's ecology and consciously establish an economic basis for a future of equitably shared abundance.
Promoting Health and Healing:The science of mind-body-spirit healthhas demonstrated the profound connection between the health of a wholeperson and the health of the system in which he or she lives. Wholesystems healing, respecting both traditional knowledge and modernsciences, must be supported in physical, social, and spiritual domains.
Building Global Community:The new story is about all of us who sharethis planet. Together, we can create a culture of peace that eliminates the need for armed conflict, respecting and appreciating the glorious diversity of our human family.

Another beautiful spring day. Make sure you get out in the positiveness of the energy around and, possibly, a stroll in the nearest park for some chlorophyll. While you walk or rest on a bench, have a look inside, within your feelings, and take stock of 'where you are at' . Without judgement, note what 'feels' good and what doesn't in your 'present' circumstances. Not in the past nor in the future. Where are you at right now? No need to take any action, just acknowledge your findings. The first step to CHANGE is the clear observation of where you are at NOW.

Today a new teacher started taking Fridays at 10:30-12:00 class. Diana Harland has been for 10 years part of TRIPSICHORI ,a dance team interpreting movement through an artistic flow of yoga postures. She teaches a Hatha flow that is adaptable to different levels, whether beginners or advanced. I used to go and see her impressive performances with her associate director Edward. Try her class.
Tonight at 7:30 Raja Yoga is on. Among other issues, we want to touch on what our "me" means and how do we perceive it. What is the image we have of ourselves? Are we happy with it? Do we see the possibility of changing it, improving it? Through your Hatha practice, are you beginning to feel more in your body and therefore more conscious of your identity? Inner and outer?
