“If I have no appetite—it is because I am already full. If I have no desire to go anywhere—it is because I have already arrived.”
Max Strom, A Life Worth Breathing: A Yoga Master's Handbook of Strength, Grace, and Healing
“you simply need to unchain yourself from the past. Then you may find that you have all the power that you need once the past has been released. To let go of the past may be the most meaningful action you will ever take.”
Max Strom, There Is No App for Happiness: How to Avoid a Near-Life Experience
“Humility is the elixir that invites harmony into the world, for power without humility is tyranny. Physical beauty without humility is ugliness. Material wealth without humility is gluttony. The ego mistakenly sees humility only as lack, so it turns away from it, while, in truth, practicing humility brings balance and beauty to our minds, hearts, and into the world itself.”
Max Strom, A Life Worth Breathing: A Yoga Master's Handbook of Strength, Grace, and Healing
“There is no software for becoming self-aware.”

Max Strom, There Is No App for Happiness: How to Avoid a Near-Life Experience
“We lose our gratitude so easily in this commerce-driven world, and take for granted our health, friendships, food, warm shelter, running water, etc. We can become so spoiled that we actually feel the universe is conspiring against us if we aren’t being handed an Academy Award, or if we aren’t as famous as U2.”
Max Strom, A Life Worth Breathing: A Yoga Master's Handbook of Strength, Grace, and Healing

“I attribute much of my rapid transformation to learning how to breathe well early on. That is when things really started to move. Through the breathing practice I really felt the way I thought.”
Max Strom, A Life Worth Breathing: A Yoga Master's Handbook of Strength, Grace, and Healing
“In contrast to our forward surge in technology, the direction of religion worldwide continues to careen backward to the Dark Ages, more tribal than transformative. From holy wars over holy lands to holy wars in our own minds, each religious camp is flying their gang colors. Each has determined that their own Messiah of love or Prophet of peace should be pronounced the absolute. And if you don’t submit, these gangs will destroy you, despite clear instructions from their Prophet or Messiah to the contrary. Democracy and Christianity delivered in so-called smart bombs; Islam delivered in car bombs. As the world unifies economically, it is fragmenting and dividing culturally.”
Max Strom, A Life Worth Breathing: A Yoga Master's Handbook of Strength, Grace, and Healing

Max Strom, A Life Worth Breathing: A Yoga Master's Handbook of Strength, Grace, and Healing
“The more light you shine into the world, the more you can help others with your very presence.”
Max Strom, A Life Worth Breathing: A Yoga Master's Handbook of Strength, Grace, and Healing
“Yoga is usually offered in a nondogmatic format, which makes it inclusive as opposed to divisive. If one needs reminding of the perils of divisiveness, one need look no further than the morning newspaper; all family, tribal, state, national, and international warfare begins with the template of divisiveness. The lower mind first divides, then derides, and then destroys.”
Max Strom, A Life Worth Breathing: A Yoga Master's Handbook of Strength, Grace, and Healing
“Showing Respect in Business: 1. Pay your bills on time;”

“As one man describes his life, “In the morning I can’t wake up, in the day I am bored, in the evening I am tired, and at night I can’t sleep.”
Max Strom, A Life Worth Breathing: A Yoga Master's Handbook of Strength, Grace, and Healing
“Women spend on average eighty-one minutes per day on Facebook. • Men spend on average sixty-four minutes per day on Facebook.”
