Looking to the Higher Self
Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D. – May 29th, 2001 – Espanota, NM, USA
Life is basically very secure. Only humans are insecure. We hold onto things and are not sure of tomorrow. Women who practice insecurity and men who practice arrogance are the most dangerous things on the planet. When people say, “Chant the Name of God,” it means that you should look to a higher self than yourself In doing this you feel vast and your problems become small.
While Lord Shiva was teaching Parvati she often fell asleep. It took three lifetimes for Parvati to learn the teachings of her husband. One day she said, “Lord Shiva, ocean of teachings, I am a humble woman. I have taken three lifetimes to hear you, still I can’t reach your teachings. You say it is very easy, I say it is very difficult.” Lord Shiva looked at her and said, “Do you really want to learn, or are you asking for arguments’ sake?” Women were arguing then and they are arguing now. To help a woman find a real mate, she has been given a special sixth sense to argue. Arguing is a woman’s treat. A man’s treat is to smile. When a woman argues, just smile, drink a glass of water and get out of the house as fast as you can.
Parvati replied, “Really, Lord, I want to learn!” Shiva said, “Then keep obeying whatever I will say. You will become obedient and the knowledge of Infinity will be with you.” Parvati did it. When a woman does not feel that she is a female, a shakti, it is a tragedy. When women says, “I don’t know,” “I can’t deal with it,” they are not taking long breaths, they cut the psyche. Men have a very different approach. They say, I’ll think it over and call you back.” It is actually a man’s way of resting his brain.
