Genetics are irrelevant, Spirituality is everything

Genetics control physical aspects of a being’s incarnation. Whereas spiritual connection extends before and beyond the parameters of physicality. Genetics are a method or modality to manufacture or manifest the physical nature of a spiritual being. Other than sharing the successful genetic coding to create a physical being – there isn’t necessarily or usually an extraordinary spiritual connection beyond a localized familiarity that is inevitable. Of course the natural connection between every being is obvious – but the additional layer of connectivity is not enunciated by physical proximity, it is incidental. Incarnation on earth is a manifestation to celebrate a spiritual being’s connection to all that is, using the modality of the physical world.



Humble Respect & Deep Gratitude for this Practice. If anyone understands powerful healing through yoga, meditation and visualization, it’s a yogi . Your Feet Face Forward is my story of holistic healing and modern day application of yogic philosophies that I learnt from teaching yoga. I offer it with love and light and thank every teacher for working so selflessly day in and day out to heal our world. Namaste! Now Available: Book


It’s not who’s right, it’s what’s right.

If your truth is different to my truth, it means that we don’t share the same source. It’s not uncommon for a theme of poses to flow through classes from different teachers out of the blue. Sometimes months go by and I don’t teach a particular pose and then I do – only to be told by students that other teachers are also all of a sudden teaching the same unique and rare pose. This is because teachers connect to a source that feeds us. This is analogous to truth. Not the pose I chose or the other teacher’s pose, but the pose that we both choose because we both connect to the same source. If your truth emanates from source – which is integrity, love and trust, then you will likely agree with another person whose truth emanates from source too. If you are constantly disagreeing with people because of what you believe, it might be time to look within and see what that’s about. Integrity will always prevail. You might bully the world into seeing things your way for a while, but don’t be surprised when you your world shatters and ends. Truth is truth – not your truth, not the other person’s truth – but the universal truth of love, trust and integrity. Making other people wrong to make yourself right is a travesty of truth.        


Life (and Death)

Feet Face Forward Yoga with Colin Wolpert - Healing Vinyasa

LIFE Remember that our time in this physicality is just a drop in the ocean in the scheme of things. Nothing ever dies – it changes form. Yes the body gets old and people leave their bodies eventually. This is why you are not your body – you are you, within your body. Your body is an extension of your existence and present in physicality to experience your energy in a tangible and tactile way. Because we are the ones that are responsible for actually experiencing the events of our lives, we take responsibility for these experiences – they don’t belong to anyone else – they are ours alone. Because this blimp of time present on earth in life form and physicality is so short – there is little time to mess around or similarly take it too seriously. It’s important, yes it is. We must take care of our bodies – but it’s not the end of the world if we exit the physical system. We are present in another realm for sure. When the karma and the lessons of this lifetime are complete – (and they don’t have to be hard or complicated) – we leave our bodies and go back to the place where we came from. It is in THIS physicality that we are alone – it is in spirit and ether that we are together. The relationship you are having with another being now is just the tip of the iceberg – you met here to verbalize things – you will meet back there (and here again, maybe) for the rest of time and beyond. We are never apart – we are always together – it is only our mind that perceives distance and separation and this causes emotion and suffering. DEATH The other beings are going to pass on. So are you, so am I. When will this happen? That’s the variable. When you realize that it is your own projection that is in fear of another being/person going to meet their ancestors and your future family of unborn/to be manifested humans, then you will breathe some relief. Know that your attachment to this physicality is the creator of pain. Realizing that there are millions of spirits/souls/existences waiting to cheer the other being back to that other world and billions of beings waiting to be born, waiting to hear all about you from that being – then you will let him/her pass peacefully. You will meet them in dreams and you will meet them in presence when you pass. You will see them in your friends, your family, the person on the street, and you will laugh and cry. You will realize that life is short – it’s important, but it’s not so serious. I send you love and light to understand that there is more to this than the reactive doctrine that humans usually fall into. Of course you will experience grief – that’s why you’re here – not to avoid pain, but to evolve from it. Please get on your mat everyday. Some people’s mats are yoga mats, some are chairs in meditation, some are painter’s or musician’s perches, some are dance floors, some are beaches, some are kitchens. It does not matter what modality you engage in to be connected with all that is – what matters is that you do have a wisdom practice, from where you can be all that you are, to celebrate and honor all the beings around you. Much love and joy to you sentient being.
