The Snake Revealed

That’s right, Im a snake.
Snakes don’t have compassion. We are reptiles, after all.
Don’t pay any taxes? –That means I’m smart.
Stiffed everyone I owed? –That’s just business.
Wished for financial calamity so I can exploit peoples’ misfortune? –That’s just business, too.
Praised foreign despots while they inflict atrocities and then blame my personal adversaries for all of it? –Why not?
Climate change? — a hoax invented by the Chinese for China
Democracy? — overrated. Believe me I’ll fix everything myself in this hell we are living in.
Insulted people for their looks, weight, gender, race, lineage, nationality?
–They deserved it.
Now you know. Wait until I reveal who I really am.  But you will only find out if and when I am in charge and have control of the situation.
On her way to work one morning
Down the path along side the lake
A tender hearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake
His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew
“Poor thing, ” she cried, “I’ll take you in and I’ll take care of you”
“Take me in tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in, tender woman, ” sighed the snake
She wrapped him up all cozy in a comforter of silk
And laid him by her fireside with some honey and some milk
She hurried home from work that night and soon as she arrived
She found that pretty snake she’d taken to had been revived
“Take me in, tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in, tender woman, ” sighed the snake
She clutched him to her bosom, “You’re so beautiful, ” she cried
“But if I hadn’t brought you in by now you might have died”
She stroked his pretty skin again and kissed and held him tight
Instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite
“Take me in, tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in, tender woman, ” sighed the snake
“I saved you, ” cried the woman
“And you’ve bitten me, but why?
You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”
“Oh shut up, silly woman, ” said the reptile with a grin
“You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in
“Take me in, tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in, tender woman, ” sighed the snake

“When you bring your soul and your will together you become conscious…

SSSYWa“When you bring your soul and your will together you become conscious. It is all you and it is all about you. When you live consciously, you make a choice. That choice has to be valid and fully from the heart; a choice without duality and with complete clarity. Then you direct your mind – your head – to act on it. You direct your mind to commit and go for the goal you choose.” Yogi Bhajan

“You produce a life full of things, but you are absent…

SSSYWa“You produce a life full of things, but you are absent. It is a life with no juice, no essence, no heart, and no reality. It lacks confidence, penetration, and impact. The mind was given to you to relate to Infinity, and consciousness was given to you to live. If you react and project mentally, and then depend on that, you as you are just zero. Anything multiplied by zero will become zero. With this habit even your elemental personality will eventually become zero and leave no trace.” Yogi Bhajan

Yogi Bhajan’s Seven Steps to Happiness

Adapted from Aquarian Times, Winter 2001

   Shakti Parwha Kaur Khalsa was Yogi Bhajan’s first student in the United States. She has been teaching Kundalini Yoga since 1969. She is the author of Kundalini Yoga: The Flow of Eternal Power; Kundalini Postures and Poetry; and Marriage on the Spiritual Path: Mastering the Highest Yoga. She is a frequent movie-goer in the City of Angels.

Yogi Bhajan’s Seven Steps to Happiness

Happiness comes from giving, and having an attitude of gratitude. Happiness has to do with being god-like. That’s not asking too much, since the core identity of each of us is Spirit. That’s why these Seven Steps to Happiness apply.

1. Commitment

The first step is commitment. Commit to kindness and compassion. In every life you are meant to commit. That is why the word is commit-meant. Commitment gives you CHARACTER.

2. Character

Character is when all your characteristics—all facets, flaws, and facts—are under your control. Yin and yang meet there, totally balanced. Character is a pattern of behavior where you can clearly answer and stand before your own consciousness. Character gives you DIGNITY.

3. Dignity

Dignity is when you act as a god for another. People start trusting you, liking you, respecting you. Dignity will give you DIVINITY.

4. Divinity

Divinity is when people have no duality about you. They trust you right away. They have no fear about you. Divinity is when you put yourself and your life on the line to serve another person or a creature. Divinity gives you GRACE.

5. Grace

Where there is grace, there is no interference, no gap between two people, no hidden agendas. Grace is when you’ve developed a presence that works. Grace gives you the power to SACRIFICE.

6. Power to Sacrifice

The power to sacrifice is when God sits in your heart and presides in your head. You can stand any pain for another person. That sacrifice takes you to HAPPINESS.

7. Happiness

Happiness is when you can be thankful for the chance of being these seven things.
