The idea of becoming visible, standing up and saying your truth when it challenges the status quo, is challenging in the world today. In no time at all, you will be criticized and condemned by somebody. This happened to me twenty years ago when I wrote an article saying yoga would measurably increase sports performance. I was frustrated that it was summarily dismissed; then I shrugged my shoulders and moved on. Do you quickly judge and condemn something or someone that challenges what you know before taking the time to find out what led the person to say what they did, let alone try it for yourself and find out whether it is true for you? How does criticism and judgement impact your state of mind?
