"DEAR DAVID,

WHERE IS THE PLACE OF THE YOGI IN A REVOLUTION? SITTING STILL GOES AGAINST EVERY FIBER OF MY BRING BUT WHAT WOULD THE SUTRAS SAY?

.

It’s a natural human thing to want to lash out at wrong, to get mad, retaliate, and let go. It takes great power to practice restraint and to channel your anger like Gandhi or MLK. You keep your anger contained so that you can act skillfully instead of rashly. Having restraint means you can act for the long term, be consistent in your actions, and really take the steps to fight for what you believe in. 

And also you’re not supposed to sit still, you’re NOT SUPPOSED TO SIT STILL. Remember what the Bhagavad Gita says, “From birth to death the human being is never even for one moment without action.” You are constantly compelled to action and so what you want to do is sit still for long enough to gather your forces so that you can act with discernment, skill, and love; act from the place of your higher Self rather than from insecurity or fear or concern for your own gain."
