Love has two polarities: conditional and unconditional. Conditional love has expectations which give us pain and joy.  Unconditional love gives us ecstasy, self-fulfillment, self-respect, self-esteem and the knowledge of our higher selves. Valentine’s Day is a day of love – – true and simple. Unconditional love is the power of the day. Love creates our bountiful, beautiful and blissful tomorrows, and this is God in us.

In these two images, the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan drew the flow of the Kundalini – not just up the spine to the Crown Chakra but down again, the whole cycle, and he signed it on the second page (image to the right).  Here are some questions about it, which Nam Kaur clarified with him later:

The heart of our yatra was five days spent at the home of Yogi Bhajan in Anandpur at Dashmesh Sadan. Yogi Bhajan named his home to reflect the humility, grace, and devotion that Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Master, embodied. Guru Gobind Singh had made his home in this area and it became the birthplace of the Khalsa.
From the moment we entered this beautiful home we all felt the deep connection to the light of Yogi Bhajan within and without, and the spirit of Guru Gobind Singh. Surrounded by lush green fields and sacred temples dotting the surrounding mountains, we felt held in the arms of these great teachers and the Divine Feminine.

The teacher I served was and is so right that he left a teaching so all who come can still serve him. It’s available to all. Study his teachings; practice his way; experience his help. It turns out, he’s the real deal. He can and did deliver what he promised. His way is not only helpful, but beautiful as well. His way is Guru’s way. Stay tuned,

Yogiji spoke at least a few times about his belief that the Americans (us, we, ME!) who found Sikh Dharma (through Kundalini Yoga) were very likely to be reincarnations of those frightened souls who ran from Guru Gobind Singh’s call for the “head of a brave young one” that first Vaisakhi Day. The song says “many did they run away and many did they hide … ” Those particular words always affected me with shivers down (or up) my spine when we sang them during gurdwara or any 3HO/Sikh Dharma function.

The ‘promises’ held out by all-time honored religions and/or lifestyles are enough to elevate the disgruntled to a less disgruntled state. These ‘promises’ can be defined as follows: If the spiritual aspirant accepts the teacher, the teachings, and/or God as the provider, protector, and grantor of salvation in his or her life, life will gain happiness, relevance, and liberation. The more the spiritual aspirant can be in ‘devotion to’ and ‘trust in’ this concept, the more content life becomes.

“Best thing in your life, if you can ever do it, will be key to your happiness, prosperity and power, is to uplift others just with a smile. Don’t do anything, just with somebody who is very depressed. Put a hand around the neck and say, ‘I am with you.’ Hold somebody’s hand and close your eyes and start meditating. Hug somebody and keep long deep breathing with the person. That little gesture is more divine and powerful than anything else you do on the planet. Give a helping hand. Breathe with a person, because your total life is based on the breath of life.” ~ Yogi Bhajan

Some of my fondest memories growing up were living in the ashram in Denver and going to solstices and/or other community events around the country.  There were many unusual people who came through the ashram in those early days.  My brother and I were generally the only kids around and we had lots of “older brothers and sisters”.  I also vividly remember the impact the music of the day had on me.  When I would come home to the ashram after school and everyone was still at work and I was home by myself, I would blast Singh Kaur’s “Beloved God” and “Ad Guray Nameh”, while looking out the big picture window of the sadhana room.  Bliss!
