We have ten bodies. The projection of the radiant Body, the tenth body, determines how other people see us and how we see ourselves. It can be shiny and protective, or dull and porous. We also use our Radiant Body to heal. If it is strong enough, we can heal people with our mere presence. This is a goal that is our challenge in this age, where so many people need to be healed and there is so little time.
This meditation strengthens and enhances the Radiant Body.

An immersion was held at Yoga West, led by Jagat Guru Singh. a long time student of Yogi Bhajan and Guru Dev Singh.
Its purpose was to introduce the Kundalini Surjhee Shabad to students in order to promote its recitation for their health and well being.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring love.
Where there is offense, let me bring pardon.
Where there is discord, let me bring union.
Where there is error, let me bring truth.
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith.
Where there is despair, let me bring hope.
Where there is darkness, let me bring your light.
Where there is sadness, let me bring joy.
O Master, let me not seek as much
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love,
for it is in giving that one receives,
it is in self-forgetting that one finds,
it is in pardoning that one is pardoned,
it is in dying that one is raised to eternal life.
Dear Blessed Healers,
It is a good time to assess and tune our relationship with our teacher. However you perceive that relationship personally, there is only the question of identity that seems to matter. Guru Dev Singh identifies as a teacher, as did Yogi Bhajan before him and so on through the lineage. It is a commitment of love, sacrifice and endless service. In order to hold a proper relation with him, Yogi Bhajan and the Guru, it is important to clarify that aspect of identity in our awareness.
The Guru is not inherently our friend, nor is any teacher. The teacher has delightful personality, which we love. That is not the basis for the relation. It is an attraction that gets our attention.
Neither will the Guru, nor any teacher, save us directly. Only indirectly. That obligation is on us. It is our duty, upon receiving the grace of God through the Guru and through the teacher, that we apply the teachings to our personal circumstance. We must focus beyond all distraction, including our own and our teacher’s personality, to the source of grace. Then we must commit to keeping it up, beyond all circumstance. That is how we are saved. If we identify as a teacher, then we can also promote the flow of grace to others through the teachings. Rather than our friend, the teacher is our benefactor who facilitates our salvation by enlightening our ignorance.
It is a time for healing. Our teacher, and ourselves. We are healers. Rather than objectively “healing” our teacher, we should go to the core of the relation where we all can merge with our common intent and so heal all.
Here is a meditation that I suggest will help in that endeavor.
Last night my wife and I watched an interesting movie that has a resonance with what is happening.
In class last night we did a meditation about this.
Meditation: 881026 Removing Fear of the Future
The meditation removes fear of the future by freeing us of the endless mental contrivances we construct in order to avoid fear and pain.
The man is portrayed in various stages of a very colorful and eventful life. He lives by his mother’s dying admonition not to worry about the future. She said that worry will always make things worse. She suffered greatly, even in dying, but knew the secret of happiness, even if she never realized it in her life. She said to Allan, her son (the now 100 year old man) it always is what it is, and will always be what it will be. He took her up on that, which made all the difference. He led a happy and charmed life. Even at 100, he wasn’t finished.
The story is similar to Forrest Gump. He also led a charmed life. Forrest’s secret was innocence. Allan’s was living in the moment, flowing like water. Both were lucky, seemingly making their own luck. Both were free of fear of the future.
