“It is a normal thing in human behavior to be selfish. You can’t get away from it, but you can channel it. Be selfish to the extent of being known as generous. Cater to the image to be selflessly serviceful to others.” Yogi Bhajan
“To be spiritual is to give and give, never to expect back, as clouds give rain and never come down to take the water back. And your life exists on that giving. There is nothing to learning to be spiritual; learn from the clouds that give you the light and the spirit of giving through their own drops of water which create huge vegetation for you. “ Yogi Bhajan
The heavy is the root of the light.
The unmoved is the source of all movement.
Thus the Master travels all day
without leaving home.
However splendid the views,
she stays serenely in herself.
Why should the lord of the country
flit about like a fool?
If you let yourself be blown to and fro,
you lose touch with your root.
If you let restlessness move you,
you lose touch with who you are.
(translation by Stephen Mitchell, 1995)
