Yogi Bhajan – NM371
MEDITATION – Enjoy the Creativity of God
- Sit straight in a cross-legged
position. Raise the hands in front of the heart with the fingers spread open. Keep the palms facing inward and interlock the fingers so that the thumbs are pointing up at 90 degrees and the fingers are straight, at an upwards angle. Elbows are relaxed down. Eyes are closed.
Chant from the navel the Mool Mantra. Continue for 11 minutes.
- Chant rhythmically and powerfully from the navel Har-Har, Har-Har… . Continue for 3 minutes.
- Chant powerfully from the navel Har Har Har Har Gobinday by Nirinjan Kaur. Continue for 3 minutes.
- Chant loudly from the navel the Bolay So Nihal…Sat Siri Akal.
Continue for 3 minutes. Relax.The Guru has prepared us with the song of victory, elevating us to face this day. Those who speak the words of Guru Nanak for 45 minutes to one hour every day cannot go wrong. Make your pronunciation so accurate that learned people cannot match it. That is the way we should qualify ourselves. We must give ourselves that strength which is within us. We should not allow this strength to be taken away by our outside thoughts. Remember, thoughts come and go, and we remain—Humee Hum Brahm Hum—for we and God are One
Medical science has no answer for Cold Depression, the biggest disease of humanity. When you have Cold Depression, not even your spirit can help you, for it occurs when you fight against your own consciousness. The majority of people are accustomed to Cold Depression from the age of 36 onwards, but it may start at the age of 27, or occasionally as early as the age of 11. Normally people don’t want to resolve it, but the solution is simple—find out what you are fighting for. The most difficult thing in life is to serve a living Master. You may read millions of books and have all knowledge, but without a guru there is darkness—you cannot have the kick in the butt which he can give you. I once told my teacher I was going shopping. He took away all of my money—50 rupees—and gave me a list of supplies to get for him. I went to the shop and at the moment of paying I told the shopkeeper to put the bill on the account of Santji. The shopkeeper said, “Take everything. Money is not an issue!” I returned to Santji with all the supplies. To my surprise, I found a friend of mine whom Santji had sent shopping with my 50 rupees. The test was not about money and how to buy things. The test was about how I could save embarrassment and come out smiling. When the subconscious mind is in a depression, this subconscious gets into the consciousness, and the consciousness gets to you. Duality and non-reality are your own subconscious. The consciousness is now. The subconscious is what was happening yesterday—thoughts which you did not control. Learn to control your thoughts through meditation and invoke your own virtue! You express yourself in communication with others. Why not express yourself to yourself? Talk to the Guru within you, in a prayerful way. Go within yourself for one hour, chant and meditate, and be cured. Your depression will go away. The sensory system in the subconscious is so clogged up that it is not with you. “Would you like to eat now?”“No, I’m not hungry… ask me in an hour.” “Let’s go for a walk.” “No… tomorrow.” “Sit down and talk to me.”“Why should I talk to you?”You have to take time to answer because there is no coordination and rhythm in your feelings, emotions, and aggressiveness. If you are exalted, everything is fine. Enjoy the creativity of God! Creativity is of God. You only have to watch, you only have to see, you have to feel— it is a divine relationship. When the Creator creates and the creature relates to His Creation, divinity is established. Let us see how we deal with it.
