Jane Lanza: In our society, the message reads, “Gifts equal fulfillment. You get this product at the holidays, and you will be satisfied.”
Jenn Jarecki: I would say that is the message. I’m not sure that’s exactly the experience. I saw once this father had purchased some ridiculously expensive video game thing for his 3-year-old, and the video shows this kid ripping it open, rips it out of the box, places it to the side and is head over heels for the box.
Miv London: I think the basic message of yoga is that fulfillment doesn’t come from external objects or spending money or stuff, but that fulfillment comes from within. It comes from finding peace and contentment in your own self and from discovering your true nature, which is living, open, peaceful, and kind.
Jane Lanza: Thanks Miv for mentioning metta meditation, loving kindness. It’s a direct experience and a cultivation of gratitude. Let’s go ahead and practice metta meditation now. Do you mind leading this for us?
Miv London: Sure.
