I really enjoyed this talk, combined with the poisons and daily practice talks. How to live a good life as a yoga, personified as a person by Ryan and detailed so clearly in such a short amount of time. I particularly appreciated the subtle (and not so subtle) jokes, as it reminded me of one of the most important things in life, having a sense of humour. Ridiculously amused by the discrimination comment and you're so right, following teachings blindly or following someone without any question, can result in so much of the negativity in this world, as they say question everything...why :) I can't surrender everything to God, as an atheist, but I can surrender everything to the interconnectedness of all, based on science and an enlightened moment in a physics class at university, I know this to be true. A quote in an odd TV show I watched reminded me of this connection "in nature there is no death, only a reshuffling of atoms", which brings me a lot of comfort, despite my practice of aparigraha, or non-attachment.

Yo People! Thank you for sharing these comments. I am happy that you enjoyed your Vitamins! I am also doing some writing for MYO and the Intro to Power Program. Check it out if you like the vitamins. The Power Blend might taste good! Love from Saskatoon, Canada!
