Construction Workers Are Yogi’s
Two of my great loves are architecture and construction.
I am mesmerised by the human capacity to build large symmetrical structures.
This is the old electricity building in Niagara Falls built in 1906, designed by the architect and Mason, EJ Lennox.
He was a very well-read man, clearly with a passion for his profession and a spiritual man who believed in his career and something greater than himself.
He studied historical architecture and created new structures in line with the times.
Yoga includes self-study.
Delving into the past to inspire the future.
The belief of The Masons was originally “Making Good People Better”.
They believed in working together to improve humanity and make life better for people.
Well educated men (and women) who contributed beneficially to society in a practical way.
Real-world Yogi’s doing #yogaoffthemat.
EJ Lennox is the type of person who inspires me to keep growing in my personal development and professional development.
There is no separation between the two for me.
From a position of continuous improvement within myself, I teach others.
Historical research is important.
If we don’t know where we came from, we don’t know where we’re going.
From a Buddhist perspective, construction and architecture are probably some of the best examples of non-attachment.
They invest a great deal of mental fortitude and physical effort into building something that people need, making people’s lives better, and then walking away with no emotional attachment.
Real-world Yogis without even realising.
Thank you for what you do.
