Teaching with McYogi and Gandhi

Teaching with McYogi and Gandhi

John F. Kennedy said: ‘Don’t ask what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country.’
Michael Jackson said: ‘I’m starting with the man in the mirror.’
Mahatma Gandhi said: ‘Be the change you want to see in the world.’

John F. Kennedy, Michael Jackson, Mahatma Gandhi and many more great leaders and artist have all said the same: Change your self and you will change the world around you. Don’t point your finger at somebody else, don’t blame somebody else, take responsibility for your own happiness and own deeds. Start with the man in the mirror. Let that man be the change you want to see in the world and you will see that the world will change.

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been a lucky man; I’ve been allowed to teach at Fontys Highschool; teaching mindfulness, yoga and meditation to the next generation. It’s up to me to be the change I want to see in the world, but it’s also up to them. They are the future. Yoga and meditation still have got a little image problem, being for softies, for hippies. And Gandhi, John F. Kennedy and Michael Jackson have past away long time ago, but their message is still alive. So how to get this message and the yoga message across to the iPhone-generation?
The solution is McYogi
He’s the one who gives old wisdom a new touch. He makes rap songs of old yoga knowledge and he’s on YouTube. Moving images, lyrics, rap; the best way to address the new generation. 

Let’s hope the message came across. Let’s hope it worked out teaching with McYogi and Gandhi, because that will bring peace, understanding and true love a little closer. If it didn’t came across, let’s throw in Michael Jacksons words one more time:

I’m Gonna Make A Change,
For Once In My Life,
It’s Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .

As I, Turn Up The Collar On
My Favorite Winter Coat
This Spring Is Blowing My Mind
I See The Kids In The Street,
With Not Enough To Eat
Who Am I, To Be Blind?
Pretending Not To See Their Needs
A Summer’s Disregard,
A Broken Bottle Top
And A One Man’s Soul
They Follow Each Other On The Wind Ya’ Know
‘Cause They Got Nowhere To Go
That’s Why I Want You To Know

I’m Starting With The Man In The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change His Ways
And No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And Then Make A Change.
