Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Giving and Seva (Part 4)

Categories: Yogi Bhajan Quotes

Your normal process of life is to not give; not giving yourself a chance, not giving to others. You do not believe in creating a vacuum. When there is a vacuum, God must fill it.

If you can learn to raise your Kundalini by yourself, as I did, then your presence will work. Your psyche will change. Then you can help the world to change. You can help friends, relatives, unhappy people to change because you have some extra strength to share. This is the Age of Aquarius. Everybody will find happiness within themselves. Then we can share ourselves with others. We won’t have to speak. You are sharing me, I am sharing you.
Aquarian Times, Nov 2008

Any person who shall not develop the physical, mental, spiritual capacity to serve flawlessly and serve through the greatest storm of insults and who cannot still walk through the personal tragedies, shall not find himself very fit.

How many people have you broken bread with out of joy? How many times have you had the guts to sit down with someone and share from one plate? We talk about God, divinity, yoga and all the yak, yak, yak… What have you learned? How many people have you hugged, how many children have you played with? 

There’s no other way on the planet to free your soul unto the destiny and unto God but by serving those who need a hand—smiling at them, wiping away their tears, forgiving them.

Touch a person, hold a person and then carry a person. You can’t drag anybody. You can’t lean on anybody. Carry them, simply and truthfully. And what are the words that dignify the carrying? Can you repeat after me? “I am with you.” That’s all. One line, “I am with you.”

If you choose that you should be totally balanced and you will only adopt the policy of God, which is to give, give, give, you will never get tired of giving. That carefree Lord moves like the wind, like a breeze in the morning, touching and kissing everybody, hugging, laughing and smiling through the angelic nature. If you become that kind of giver, you will become God.

Seva, a service of giving without thinking of result, is a very simple thing. It makes you a leader whether you are or not—whether you deserve to be or not. And it brings you opportunities, prosperity, and all the goods, God, and goodies of the Universe.

Seva and simran are the two legs on which God walks. If you have come here, do seva. Do the Karma Yoga. Do it with your hands, and your mind, and your soul, and your money. Do it with your Self and your Self will be exalted.
I Am a Woman p. 132
