In the morality play that is professional wrestling, Terry “Hulk” Hogan was the man. He was the good guy when we needed good guys, inspiring nationalistic pride by tearing off his shirt with his 24” pythons to the song “I Am a Real American.” He challenged us: “Whatcha gonna do, brother, when Hulkamania runs all over you?” Perhaps his best lesson, one that has been burned into my brain (either by good marketing or from being hypnotized by that suicide blond hair) is his guide to being a good Hulkamaniac. To be a Hulkamaniac, we are instructed to:
- Work out
- Say our prayers
- Eat our vitamins
Being a good Yogamaniac is no different. Do your practice, see the Divine everywhere, and provide the body with worthy fuel so that you can do your practice and see the Divine everywhere.
Look to those who serve as examples. Copy the teacher. Allow yourself to be inspired.
Whatcha gonna do, brother, when Yogamania runs all over you?
