Recycle your mat!

recycle your matThis is the kind of stuff that makes the elephantbeans jump…

Manduka has teamed up with Recycle Your Mat to offer a 20% discount for mindful peeps that send their old yoga mats to be recycled.  Yay for the discount.  Yay for supporting recycling.  Yay for the people who set up this long overdue project!

An incredibly sweet rendition of all the things we just love about New York.  As told through LEGOS!

Nothing is Impossible!  An artist creates “Horton Hears a Who”-esque worlds/characters in the eye of a needle, then sells his collected works for 20 million dollars to a private collector…

Mental richness should be worried just a physical richness. Didn’t Christ say that it was like a camel trying to pass through a needle hole, for John Cage to go to heaven? I think it is nice to abandon what you have as much as possible, as many mental possessions as the physical ones, as they clutter your mind. It is nice to maintain poverty of environment, sound, thinking and belief. It is nice to keep oneself small like a grain of rice instead of expanding and make yourself dispensable like paper. See little, hear little, and think little.


Although I suppose the situation is ironic, considering that Jesus said, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” (Matthew 19:24. Similar verses are in Mark 10:25 and Luke 18:25).
