I learned that people like dezengo are out there and that we share these books as 6th sensory beings who look at the present through a rear-view mirror. Then we march backwards into the future doing yoga. Rumi poems become moves that the eternal soul breakdances with, the ego becomes the cardboard on the cement, and each moment of compassion is a backspin. Some of us have done a lot of inner work in past lives and do backspin into windmill, into 1990, into baby walks, into shuffles going left when you think its gonna be a right, and down when you think its gonna be the side. The book reminds us that our eternal soul is happenings through us, and so we say we have moments of Hafiz. Some people have deep karma with the brothers of Hafiz, and feel moments of Kabir. They are all one now, and from the sacred book of rhyme pages one can learn that we have many past lives. So Grand Puba was right, it wasn't a skin thing, The black man came first. Society has it all mixed up and they be lying about who GOD is. But some people break out of the trance, you gotta turn your mind upside down to do it. Marshall McLuhan did it, thats why he said, “The story of modern America begins with the discovery of the white man by
The Native Americans.” [Give this, and the following, some thought in the context of Hip Hop, oh I mean devotional Poetry]. Thanks Dezengo, we now know which one of the yoga books will be suggested readings at the studio, make that required for Bonsai Nonmind Workshops.
