Yoga teaches us that everything is connected. All beings live in union or harmony with the natural world. Everything we do, all of our actions create consequences or “karma”. Or simply put, what we sow so shall we reap. Every day we either plant seeds of kindness, social responsibility, and sustainability or we don’t. We either value fair trade, human rights and the dignity and worth of all beings or we don’t. Our actions hold us accountable and karma, ” bears fruit accordingly to the type and quality of the seed and the care given to its growth” ( The Secret Power of Yoga, Nischala Joy Devi).
Looking for Fair Trade Certified Products this Holiday
As you prepare for the official start of the Christmas Holiday shopping season, learn to look for labels. Think of them as seeds of karma, bearing the fruits of their actions. Fair Trade Certified™ Label guarantees consumers that strict economic, social and environmental criteria were met in the production and trade of an agricultural product. Fair Trade farmer groups receive a minimum price covering the cost of sustainable production and a premium to invest in social and economic development projects.
The Fair Labor Association (FLA) Workplace Code of Conduct and are Worldwide Responsible Apparel Production (WRAP) certified ensure that guidelines and principles are in line with clothing that is produced by sweatshop free companies . USDA certified organic foods and products are grown and processed according to federal guidelines addressing, among many factors, soil quality, animal raising practices, pest and weed control, and use of additives. Organic producers rely on natural substances and physical, mechanical, or biologically based farming methods to the fullest extent possible.
Think Global Shop Local
Look for local companies that support global social responsibility. We have to choose consciously and carefully what we want to manifest so we know what and where to plant. We can’t continue to do what we have always done and expect something different. We simply can’t plant apples and expect to harvest peaches in the fall. Good in and good out. Life is like that. While we function as a global community connected thru cyberspace we live locally in our own back yard and that’s a pretty good place to start planting some new seeds.

8 Things to Create Peace and Bring Joy to the World
So here’s a few things you can dig in and do this holiday season to create some peace on earth and bring a little more joy to the world.
- Do less. It’s the new more. Try a little more being and a little less doing. Create a to-be list and ditch the to-do list. Be happy, be healthy, be at peace
- Love more. Tis the season of the heart. Celebrate spending time with those friends and family who mean the world to you. Yule be glad you did.
- Give thanks. Life itself and each breath is a blessing. Gratitude is an expression of love for the life we have been given.
- Slow down. Enjoy this present moment for the precious gift it is. Don’t miss it by being too busy. When it’s gone, it’s gone.
- Make Peace. Deep inside your own heart forgive yourself for something. Forgive someone else. Pray it forward.
- Make a list. Check it twice. Be kind. Be nice. Believe. You can change the world one heart, one mind, one day at a time.
- Shop Small. Take this message literally and figuratively. Visit a small business in your local community. Support social responsibility. Give back.
- Drink Tea. “Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future; Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.” – Thích Nhất Hạnh
