Meditation: NM0394 – Live Above Denial

Live Above Denial Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D. – April 3rd, 2001 – Espanola, NM, USA

Self-denial is your best and worst enemy. But before you kill the enemy, you should know him, and then all your problems will be resolved.

Self-denial does more for you, for example by getting ready for this class, than the class itself It is an applied meditation. Whenever you prepare yourself to project beyond self-denial, your mind force increases ten times. And whenever you are in self-denial, you do harm to yourself This is why we gave our head to the Guru, and why we were given bana to wear, coming out absolutely flowing, shining, walking proud and tall. We accomplish something! There is no denial! There is acceptance of the ultimate discipline.

We are satisfied to have a nice house and nice car. All this is just earth bound! So long as we are not heaven bound, we have not accepted heaven. So long as we are in denial of heaven, we will be unhappy. We have come from the heavens, we are to create heavens, and we must return to the heavens.

The majority of the time you are in self-denial. When you go to an interview, you prepare yourself to project well. You only want to look your best when you have an opportunity to relate to! In reality, you are the opportunity! There is no other opportunity! You live in denial. You are afraid to walk tall and be gracious, open and loving. You judge everything, first in terms of commotion and emotions, second by maya and money. Thirdly you do not want what makes you desirable, you want what fulfills your desires! In this way, life is a progressive tragedy.

A woman fell in love with a man. He said, “You come from a rich family and you are a wonderful woman. But I’m going on a trade route to make my fortune.” So he left. She waited. She marked the wall each day he was gone. After a while, no wall was left, no ceiling was left, and then no ground was left outside. Finally, after nine years, he returned. She went to the seaport and saw a flotilla of nine ships. Having done trade, he became very rich and welcomed everywhere. There was nothing but joy. He came and hugged her and said, “Come up on the ship!” She was extremely happy! Once on board he said, “Meet my wife and my five children…” A hidden desire, which was a whole different story when it appeared.

You are always in denial. You think, “It won’t happen to me.” Then, when it happens to you, you think, ‘Where did I go wrong?” You were wrong to begin with. For the sake of one thing, you closed the doors on everything. You do not open yourself to God’s vicinity. You only open yourself to the vicinity of your ego, limiting yourself You forget the Unlimited One. Because the Master of this planet is Unlimited, and you are limited, there is a conflict to begin with. A conflict between limited and unlimited. But you have unlimited desire and a limited time to live. Yxi are unable to fulfill what you are meant to fulfill in your time period.

Your mind shadows your sunshine. But when people tell you that, you get very angry. That is why Guru Gobind Singh, seeing eight aspects of God, gave mankind the Guru Gaitri Mantra. He gave us a mantra, a mind wave, a vibration, for man’s victory. The vibrations of a bow and arrow itself could sometimes conquer the enemy. It is said that when Arjuna shot an arrow, the hum of the string created lightning and the enemy had no place to go.

Some people say things but never come through. People forget they are orbit and axle, not just one or the other. YOU live indecisively, but you can live above denial, welcome people, and serve the birth of a new millennium.

The left hand is higher than the right hand so that the fingertips of the right hand fit exactly on the mounds of the left palm. Elbows are relaxed down. Eyes are closed. Chant from the navel the Guru Gaitri Mantra with four Har (“Har Har Har Har Gobinday” by Nirinjan Kaur). Continue for 31 minutes. To end, inhale deeply, hold, exhale. Inhale deeply, hold, and apply total pressure to where the fingertips meet the mounds of the hand, exhale. Inhale deeply, hold, and interlock and press hard the fingers, equalizing the energy with all your force. Exhale and relax.

This meditation will help you be delightful. You would like to be in denial, but you cannot. The strength of your mind will increase many times.

Meditation: NM0380 – Ecstasy and Joy

Self Sensory System II – Ecstasy and Joy Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D. – January 30th, 2001 – Espanola, NM, USA

When you work hard, with the strength of character and discipline, to go through the pain and reach your angelic body, then nature starts serving you. It is a state of ecstasy and joy. You let things flow, you let things go, you do not sit in judgment, and no one holds judgment on you. You drop the past, and the future is just to be a solid saint, carved within the environments with graciousness.

Leaving the worldly Maya and its attractions is a painful struggle. Just like a bull that has ropes around his legs, neck and body, and people pulling on him. The bull reaches, and merges—until its whole body becomes a radiant body. This struggle can be achieved only through sadhana, character and commitment.

The body, with its five tattvas, has many hungers—sensual, sexual, social and imaginative. You want to be known, loved, appreciated, and understood. You want to have political and social power. Rise above your hunger with the liberty of the Self! Say, “I am divine, 1 am virtue, 1 am value, 1 am happiness!” When you swim across the ocean of desires and casualties, you have no direct or indirect desire to be recognized. When you have no desire to be anybody, at that time you become the body you are.

The Guru says, “Union and disunion run the universe. And the law of cause and effect keeps life going. Life is to see it, and see through it.” Nothing you see is yours, it is a perk you are provided with. In the coziness of having those perks, you can recognize there is a Giver. All you have is predestined. You can live through it, live with it, or live under it.

It is most difficult to create personal good will for the self Only those who know how great it is, enjoy the love of personal purity. It is called ecstasy. It is not routine. It is not what you want or what you do not want. When you reach your radiant self within yourself progressively, projectively and purely, then you have nothing to do with anything. You are a light within your own light. The five tattvas will not bring you to be greedy or to have false pride and attachments. You will know the joy and ecstasy of being attached to the Lotus Feet of the Master.

We are creatures of One Creator who must go through life without being scratched. We have to pay our karma, so that we can follow the dharma. Dharma is the call of duty beyond the five tattvas, the seven chakras and the three gunas. It is a stage of ecstasy through which we walk to reach Infinity. That is the journey of life.

Screen Shot 2016-08-05 at 4.01.33 PMScreen Shot 2016-08-05 at 4.01.47 PMMEDITATION – Purify your Body and Being Sit straight in a cross-legged position. Hold your hands in Sarab Gyan Mudra in front of the heart—fingers interlocked with the index fingers extended pointing up. Eyes are closed and focused at the tip of the nose. Press the index fingertips very tightly against each other and chant, “Sat Naam, Sat Naam, Sat Naam Jee, Wah-hay, Wah-hay Guroo, Wah-hay Guroo Jee” with the instrumental tape “Duni.”

Continue for 11 or 31 minutes.

During the last 2 minutes breathe in rhythm with the tune—let the power of the body in the navel dance with it, enrich the chakras, regenerate the cells. To end, inhale deeply, hold, put all pressure on the hands, stretch the spine, and tighten every tissue of the body. Exhale. Repeat 2 more times. Relax.


Your breath is your life-giving force. There is nothing more pure and better than that. Practice to purify. That is the purpose of life.

 

Meditation: LA0967-Division and Oneness

We Are All One Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D. – April 12th, 2001 – Los Angeles, CA, USA.

You know each other, because you were all born in the same time and space as a batch of the third millennium. No matter where we live—we have all come to the planet Earth. You know that you are here. Do you accept that everyone knows everyone? Do you ever go up to someone and say “Hi, you are here, 1 am here!” without knowing the person’s name? Whenever dealing with people, remember you are here along with everyone else all of the time.

People try to look different from each other, talk differently, be different and have different ethics and morals. We have a tendency to see other people as different from us—whether they are black, brown, yellow, Indian, African or Chinese. It is in our nature. Thousands of years of education have not solved this problem. If we do not prove we are different, then we like to prove we are special. We create minorities and majorities, trends and values. It is actually our ingrown habit to be virtuously hateful. And we are hate
ful because we are not grateful. We think that if someone gets something that we do not have, it is our loss.

Our primary, fundamental behavior should be that we were born at this time and space for a purpose which we are trying to discover. We need tolerance. We need patience. We need courage. We do not have these traits because we have not developed ourselves. We have neither manners nor time! We do not have time and we do not have space, so we all want to be different and, worst of all, we want others to feel that we are different.

Man has divided his consciousness to suit his individuality so he can create a group and become powerful. Nobody wants to come together for living. We have lived divided from day one. If nobody divides us, we divide ourselves. Why do we not divide ourselves into one division—that we are all One, and there are no two among us? In the unison of nature we can bring our molecules of life together and understand our own reality.

LA0967MEDITATION – Division and Oneness

1. Sit straight in a cross-legged position. Raise both hands to shoulder level with the elbows relaxed down. Point the index fingers up and the other fingers curled down with thumbs covering them. Lyes are closed. Breathe in and out consciously and forcefully, inhaling as deeply as possible and exhaling as powerfully as you can. Be calm and quiet. Fight your thoughts and no-thoughts. Hear nothing, see nothing, think nothing. Become Shuniya. Merge into the rhythm of the universe. With the power of breath take out the violence that separates you from each other. Continue for 11 minutes.

2. Hold hands with your neighbors on each side (if you are part of a group) , creating a common ring of people. Do relaxed Long Deep Breathing. Let energy flow. Continue for 3 minutes.

To end, continue to hold hands and sing the “Long Time Sunshine” song, then chant long Sat Nam 3 times. Relax.

“May you all be blessed, blessed and blessed. And the most powerful thing with you—may you bless yourself in yourself for yourself from here to Infinity.”

Meditation to Know the Psyche of the Other

Grasp the left thumb with the right hand, and place the  hands on your lap.

Close your eyes. After a few moments, feel the sensation of your nose becoming inverted, So that the tip of your nose is between the eyes, and the bridge of the nose is at the bottom.

Surrender to the sensation of holding this position, regardless of distractions. Become aware of your emotional sensations. The Field that this Mudra is producing is part of the ElectroMagnetic Field.

Silently project the mantra SaTaNaMa from what is now the tip of the nose.

Do this for 11 minutes.

This Meditation is useful as it puts you in a place that goes directly toward merging with the psyche of the other, disarming the rational intellect. Our rationality is a duality, driven by our subconscious, that prevents us from allowing something new to happen. Merge.

NM0365-20001024-On Communication II

On Communication II – Effective Communication October 24th, 2000 – Espanola, NM, USA #NM0365

NM0365When you speak to someone, you project where you are coming from—to project from the soul, your thoughts need to be universal. When you speak to someone, determine whether you are talking to the head, the heart or the soul of the person—to speak to the heart you must speak internal truths.

In communication we express individual thoughts, feelings, commotions and emotions. Pain and hurt are pocketed in our individual commotion, holding us back so much that we cannot communicate. We listen and talk only when our emotions are satisfied. We develop prejudices, and do not see the soul and heart of another person. That is why it takes time to find an angle that another person can understand.

For communication to work, your spirit must be behind it. Normally, in our communication we judge. There is no consideration of other people’s mental development and experience, or of their bright and shining souls.  Normally, in our communication we express need, “What will this do for me?”We forget that we have a soul, a mind and a body. Our normal communication is to yell and scream, to need, want or seduce. We act this way to get something, without knowing that things will come to us when we are in communication with our soul.  I have to keep my spirit with me. I need to be in communication with my fluctuating mind and my decaying body.

This is essential. This is why we do sadhana—to feed our souls. Only the soul can control the fluctuating mind, when it comes forward and says, “I don’t deserve this.”The spirit says, “No! I don’t have to put myself through this mud.”Your human touch, your power, is exactly what you communicate with your spirit. Life’s enjoyment is to be mutual—simple, straight and straightforward. Many people waste their life in arguing. When you are not satisfied with what you have, you blame others for your problems. If you accept your state of being, there is no problem. Life has an essential reach for itself. We have to reach out.

Meditation – Eliminate Inner Conflict

Sit straight in a cross-legged position. Interlock the fingers in Venus Lock (with the thumbs interlocked and the hands forming a cupped position) in front of the solar plexus. Eyes are closed. Chant, listen and understand the mantra Humee Hum Brahm Hum by Nirinjan Kaur. Continue for 22 minutes. To end, inhale deeply and hold. Did you hear what you were saying? Raise yourself to that consciousness, to understand what you were saying deep in your heart! Exhale. Repeat 2 more times. Relax.

You must hear and understand what you speak. If you do not develop this ability, you will not have knowledge of the universe. Your inner conflict will take away all your energy and sense of reality. Once you speak, hear and understand “Humee Hum Brahm Hum,” “We are we, we are God,” all conflict in your personality will disappear.

Non-verbal communication is the essence of our inflow. When you are self-rejective, when you are scared and have a non-communicative nature, you cannot say to someone, “I love you.” Non-verbal communication can be a release of commotions, or, when active, it can become flirtation. Sometimes people are obnoxious, and even though you are conscious of it, even if you talk reasonably, and you are innocent and sincere, you are hurt by them. When innocence does not work, you pocket your grief in a non-communicative hell. When your intuition is developed to know where things are leading, but you cannot say it, that pain and pleasure together is nonverbal communication.

There is a lot of non-verbal communication instead of communication. You all do it, and deny it. You speak in a way to slip by and are non-communicative about it. When you like somebody passionately and cannot say a word, your non-communication sinks the ship. Non-verbal communication can also save you from expressions which your body undertakes instead of verbalizing. Sometimes, instead of ending up with what you have to have, you end up with garbage. When you stink, you try to cover yourself in a very non-communicative way.

For effective communication, poke and provoke—involve the other person. Confront—confrontation is the only reality we have. Then elevate, enemies and friends—to reality.
