GURU KRIYA – Touch Every Heart
1. Sit up straight in a cross-legged position. Place the left hand on the heart and raise the right hand to the side as if you are taking an oath. The fingers of both hands are spread and do not touch each other—this is the secret of this meditation. Eyes are closed. Sing along with Guru Jiwan Singh’s Guru Dev Mata shabad. Become Guru Dev. Let Guru come in. Let the guidance of God come in. Apply yourself. Be steady. Continue for 31 minutes.
2. Place the right hand over the left hand on the heart. Chant in a monotone Aad Guray Nameh, Jugaad Guray Nameh, Sat Guray Nameh, Siree Guroo Dayvay Nameh . Continue for 3 minutes. To end, inhale deeply, hold, and press your heart center with the strength of both hands. Cannon Fire Exhale. Repeat 2 more times. Relax
First you were conceived. After conception you grew. During the last two months of pregnancy, a mother becomes very, very radiant because there is a life in her. Then you are delivered, you start breathing and needing food. Similarly, you conceive a thought out of thousand thoughts per blink of the eye. That thought grows and has feelings. Each feeling becomes a desire, and then manifests—like your life. Out of billions of feelings, a million emotions attach to it, and then you deliver. You deliver a baby because you have a desire. Your desires have hopes, opinions and ideas—like those of a baby.You can have a good son, a mediocre son or a good-for-nothing son. In the same way, a thought becomes a good desire, a mediocre desire and a good-for-nothing desire. This desire is your desire, and so you have prejudices. And prejudices create party alliances. Hitler created a mass movement out of individuals. When you create a flood, it sweeps the land. People become territorial and fight. Man becomes the enemy of man.
In reality, man becomes the enemy of himself. Why? You have not found yourself. You have not told your mind, “Oh my mind, you are the personification of the Light of God. Understand your Essence.” Instead you say, “I have this habit, I have this neurosis.” They are not yours— they are the thoughts you perceive and the prejudices you conceive. You block yourself and do not allow your radiant, most beautiful, most powerful soul to shine. When a lamp becomes dirty from burning through many incarnations, no light can come through it. That person’s existence emits crudeness, animosity, jealousy, rudeness. God made him in His own Image. He is part of His Light. He should be bright, beautiful, bountiful, blissful.
