In an article from the Winter 2005 Aquarian Times Magazine 5 lectures from the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan were shared – one from each decade. This is the one from the 2000s.
The 2000s – The Aquarian Age
Lecture excerpts, June 17, 2002
Now our lives are at a crossroads. On one side we are part of the material America and on the other side we are looking to the spiritual side of ourselves in the United States. Question is, do you go with today’s trends, or do you adopt your own way of life and come out of it and be so? This is what this time demands. This is what the Age of Aquarius is all about.
You shall not follow the trends other than those which make you graceful and divine, and you will identify yourself as contented and prosperous, and in the status of an individual in bliss, through the beauty of your character and characteristics.
Your fashion shall be saintly, your life shall be virtuous, your word shall be effective, and you shall speak with honor to honor every word you speak. That’s the way life is to be.
Tomorrow, you have to have character to make an impact as a role model. You have to show people the way by helping, uplifting, and making people healthy, happy, and holy, with no thought of return. It is our time to walk on this path in spite of our handicaps.
There is a lot to do, and you are a part of it. So welcome to the new times, new era, new space, and new humanity in which we will all survive—loving, respecting, and helping each other. The time doesn’t want things which are shallow, and which are temporary, and all of you I know have to make one sacrifice or the other. So, see that you live a clean life with clarity of mind, and with an exalted purpose of life.
