I have recently been inspired by the idea of fundamentalism in my practice. From Starbucks cups and religious ideals, to political agendas, and even to yoga—when we become fundamentalist in our ideas, we wear blinders. We become rigid. We are righteous. We think nothing changes, or that our individual experiences somehow apply to everyone.
For a long time, I thought that fundamentalism only applied to to the religious and political right, and that somehow, I was above all that. But eventually, I realized that we are all fundamentalists in some way. The moment we feel righteous, we are stuck in fundamentalism.
