At times when the path of truth and clarity seems lost, calm yourself and still your mind, then the path will come to you.  To live life according to the guidance of the inner truth is essential.  If you do not, you will have doubts.  If doubts are not removed, then frustration comes in.  Frustration, when not released, leads to anger.  Anger then leads to destructive action either to the self, others, or both.  To stop this vicious cycle, create the habit to still the mind and ask questions of your own higher consciousness.  This  meditation can develop that capacity and strengthen your mental direction.

Learn to clear your mind to receive spiritual guidance whenever you need it.

The yogis spent thousands of years fine-tuning a practical system that can help us learn to use our amazing mind-computers to access our intuition. Using intuition, the choices we make can lead to real happiness in life.  The same way we use a computer to connect to the internet, we can clear the mind of its chatter and connect to the Infinite, the God within.  We have an electronic mouse to easily direct our computer to the internet, but we don’t usually have the training to use our breath and meditation to direct the mind.  So instead of being able to access our inner guidance, we often find the landscape of our mind clogged with volumes of thoughts and feelings.

The purpose of life is not to find God.  I don’t care if you beat me up, you will never convince me that we are here for that purpose.  It is the biggest lie that people believe these days. Why do you want to find God?  God has already found you.  You are only here on this Earth to begin with because of Him. It is amazing what you sometimes let yourself believe.  Even if you could find God, what would you do with Him?  He is not a coconut that you can eat.

With regular practice of this kriya, you will start hearing the inner voice, knowing exactly what is being said inside.

The Siri Guru Granth Sahib is a subtle Word.  It is a permutation and combination of words in ragas (a set of rules of how to build a melody).  If you properly analyze it and understand it, it is beyond wonders.  Slowly people recognize it and come to an understanding of the words.  As was said by John, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”  What was, what is and what shall be, are the same.  One thing remains constant, consistent and carefree, and that is God Himself.  God is not a person – it is a Self-Perpetuating Energy.  And when you become near Divine, you also become a self-perpetuating energy, and then there is nothing good, nothing bad, nothing wrong and nothing high.

If you are gold, you will end up as gold.  In this attitude of life, karmas do not matte.  What matters is the attention you pay to your Creator. ~Excerpted from Yogi Bhajan Lecture, July 21, 2001

If a human has full control of his mind, through the clarity and the crystallization of mind one can see one’s own soul and one can become part of God. That’s the only way that you can see everything that God is about. The mind is a virtue; it is faster than time and space. It’s given to us to realize beyond the beyond, the essence of life, the creativity of life, life itself. The beauty, the bounty, the bliss of the mind is found in the awareness of the soul.

For centuries the precious teachings of Kundalini Yoga were held in India in a very sacred, secret way. In 1969, Yogi Bhajan saw that people’s longing was very deep, and that it was the right time and space for us to go out and spread this knowledge. Not only would we fulfill our personal destinies in becoming teachers, we would help to fulfill his vision, which was to spread these teachings throughout the entire planet.

Woodstock, through the eyes and words of Yogi Bhajan, gives us a unique view of what was important and a clear vision of the Woodstock nation and what it could mean. In 1972, as we built the Solstice encampment at Mendocino, California, he announced that he had come as the “father of the Woodstock Nation” to transform us into the “Steelstock Nation.” To him, Woodstock was a call for human dignity, independence, understanding, courage, and peace. The urge was there. The prayer was there. The capacity to sacrifice, in the face of great opposition and against the inertia of ignorance and vested interests, was there. All that was missing were the teachings, and he delivered those teachings to us, saying he didn’t want students. Instead, he wanted teachers. He wanted each person to love her Self, stand for his consciousness, and learn how to commit and sacrifice.

Hearing the “Long Time Sun” song at the end of my first Kundalini Yoga Sadhana (daily spiritual practice) seemed like a wonder to me. It struck me deeply that there still were people knowing and singing this song that I’ve been singing as my personal mantra for more than thirty years. It was so perfect that finally I found the teachings of Yogi Bhajan. I was hooked on Kundalini Yoga from the first day, with Ishnaan, daily sadhana, and all.

We were nearly out the doorway when all of a sudden a man wielding a sword flew above the crowd from the left and struck Yogi Bhajan on the head. Thank God for the turban and kanga (wooden comb tucked in the hair) as Yogiji was not hurt, but as soon as I heard the metal sword cracking against the kanga, all my warrior instincts erupted. It was clear we were under attack as another man jumped with his sword over the crowd on my right. But as he flew over my head, I literally caught this man and hurled him back onto the crowd.

The first time I participated in White Tantric Yoga, it was 1971, in Birmingham, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. I had gone to India with Yogi Bhajan and 84 others earlier that year, and after working on a spiritual pop festival called “Celebration of Life” in New Orleans which Yogi Bhajan attended, I spent the rest of the summer traveling with him. I even drove the car that took us to Atlanta, Washington, DC, New York City, Philadelphia, and finally Detroit. I was proudly a Kundalini Yoga groupie! I had been practicing for one year and was amazed at the changes in my life.
