Bare Feet - Also Co-Opted by Eco-Pagans
An anonymous toe-incarcerator has just forwarded me the following clip:
This is a time of global warming. Through our feet I think we can begin to feel it...through our feet I think we can begin to be one people...
Feeling global climate change through our feet?
THAT is what I call super-sensory perception!
His feet may in fact be connected to his *brain*...
But his brain clearly isn't connected to reality!
We can't let a particular tribe's co-option of something turn us off it. To my detriment, for years I let those yoga airheads define the practice in my head and keep it from due consideration. I regret that and have learned my lesson.
I don't wear shoes much; but I am trying to wear them and my flip-flops less. With my bad back, and my irremediable creaky knees....what do I have to lose?
It's not like anyone will mistake ME for an Earth-worshipper - I maybe a *yoga-dad* now, but it's not like I'm Slow Rion with a composter in my backyard!
For background, see my prior post - Is Your Brood Shod? - and its out-of-control comment thread.
