This crippled, overweight Iraq War veteran learned how to walk (and run!) again. How? YOGA plus belief in self.

The body is our primary orientation on Earth, the foundation.

If our body’s health is compromised, so will be our contribution to others.

The Dalai Lama, when asked about “self-discipline,” had this to say: “Self-discipline is looking out after one’s own long-term interests.”

If, instead of caring for your own health, you rely on America’s healthcare system (read: keep-you-sick, make-you-sicker system) while working at a “job” you hate to get “medical insurance,” watch this!

And BTW, what we can do as individuals, we can also do as a society.

Let us wake up, and take charge of Life on Earth.

Thanks to

TONIGHT ONLY!! – Listen to Arthur Boorman himself talk about his incredible journey!
9PT EST Wednesday May 16, 2012. Listen in and get inspired all over again!

Arthur Boorman was a disabled veteran of the Gulf War for 15 years, and was told by his doctors that he would never be able to walk on his own, ever again.

He stumbled upon an article about Diamond Dallas Page doing Yoga and decided to give it a try — he couldn’t do traditional, higher impact exercise, so he tried DDP YOGA and sent an email to Dallas telling him his story.

Dallas was so moved by his story, he began emailing and speaking on the phone with Arthur throughout his journey – he encouraged Arthur to keep going and to believe that anything was possible. Even though doctors told him walking would never happen, Arthur was persistent. He fell many times, but kept going.

Arthur was getting stronger rapidly, and he was losing weight at an incredible rate! Because of DDP’s specialized workout, he gained tremendous balance and flexibility — which gave him hope that maybe someday, he’d be able to walk again.

His story is proof, that we cannot place limits on what we are capable of doing, because we often do not know our own potential. Niether Arthur, nor Dallas knew what he would go on to accomplish, but this video speaks for itself. In less than a year, Arthur completely transformed his life. If only he had known what he was capable of, 15 years earlier.

Do not waste any time thinking you are stuck – you can take control over your life, and change it faster than you might think.

Hopefully this story can inspire you to follow your dreams – whatever they may be.
Anything is Possible!
