THAT WOMAN (So Naar)

THAT WOMAN (So Naar)

A Woman of Truth,
That Woman,
Happily married,
A daughter of God,
Faithful to her husband,
Serving God,
Absorbed in Him,
Sacrificing herself,
Working hard to serve others,
Remembering God while she works,
That woman is Divine!
A goddess!
Wise and beautiful!
Beyond compare!

Getting Out of Insecurity

Each student of yoga must confront the mental attitude of insecurity and doubt. Actually, there are two mental styles we can use to go through life. In one style, we act as if everybody were saints until proven thieves. In the other style, we act as if everybody were thieves until proven saints. Which style of life your mind uses depends on the strength and balance of your nervous system.

Yogi Bhajan Lecture: Get Rid of Your ‘Couldn’t’

Yogi Bhajan Lecture: Get Rid of Your ‘Couldn’t’

We want to get rid of this ‘couldn’t.’ We want to make our will so clean, so clear, so positive, that the ‘couldn’t’ doesn’t touch our shores. We have a very strong disease: ‘couldn’t.’ And ultimately this ‘couldn’t’ is like a cancer and eats our determination, our essence—because we ‘couldn’t.’
All our problems on this planet come from this ‘couldn’t.’ This ‘couldn’t’ gives us a slip from our Dharma, from our duty.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Prayer (Part 3)

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Prayer (Part 3)

The concept of prayer is to tap my own unknown for my known. When the known and unknown are united in the oneness of the self, God is alive. When the known and unknown are separated in any concept, God is dormant—not dead, not gone—dormant. Therefore, the power of prayer has to be continuous.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Prayer (Part 2)

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Prayer (Part 2)

Your prayers are not answered because you do not know the projection of the prayer. How do you pray? God is over some sky or in San Diego somewhere. Then you pray to Him or to Her, whatever the case is. Actually, prayer is always to the rhythmic beat of the heart from inside. That’s prayer. Any prayer outside is a waste of time, and a misleading religious practice. Prayer is not done to somebody. That’s why mostly your prayers don’t work. It is not your fault. You have never been told how to pray.

You Shall Never Leave Me Again

You Shall Never Leave Me Again

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.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Gratitude (Part 1)

Speak truthfully; speak simply, straightforwardly and with a smile. Never try to impress others; try to impress yourself. Find happiness within you. Find an attitude of gratitude. Be happy for what God has given you. All happiness will come to you if you are happy. Happiness will come to you because happiness wants to go where happiness is.  ~ Yogi Bhajan, 9/21/91

Yogi Bhajan: The Ladder of Truth

Yogi Bhajan: The Ladder of Truth

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.
