Yogi Bhajan September 30, 1997 New York City
Today, we will work on your shashra, the seventh chakra and we will change your interlock of the third and the first chakra, to make out of you, whether you like it or not, we are not asking you for cooperation, we are asking you, whatever you have to do, you have to do, what we have to do, we have to do. The result will be that you will be balanced between your earth and your heavens.
It has come to an understanding, where you become you, in total balance and that’s what this night is about. To bring balance, in your unbalanced, micro and macro cellular system. So that you may understand happiness, you may understand prosperity, you can affect life. So, people can come to you, opportunities can come to you and chances of your vastness brings happiness to you. All-right?
Therefore, please sit down and put your hands in this condition, as you are blessing yourself. It is very simple. The psyche will catch up, your hands will come to an understanding then you know between your chest or breast whatever you have, the hands, they are very interconnected. So, get into that position, close your eyes and very faithfully, make an ‘O’ of your mouth and inhale deep and breathe out through the nose. Continue. 8 min.
Inhale deep, hold the breath and press your hands against your chest and press it hard and squeeze the body, squeeze tight, with the cannon fire breath out. Breathe in deep, hold tight, press hard, breathe out. Once again, breathe in deep, press hard, press hard and breathe out. Please relax. 1 min.
Put your beautiful hands like this and no, no you don’t have to do anything, put your chest out and shoulders, put your shoulders back, so that you release the central serum of the spinal chord. Just remember, it is very medical what I am telling you right now, just like this and put your shoulders up and this back and this thumb down, you know, thumb, you go down, yeah, is that understood? Now, close your eyes, put Rakhe Rakhan Har music tape and let them whistle with it. You will whistle, we will play the song and you will whistle, song you all know, Hardas Pai, Amar Das Guru, but you will just do that. 6 min.
Inhale deep, put your hands together and lock them, up, up on your head, over, over, over, lock them and try to stretch your elbows and do not let the lock go. Breathe in tight and stretch, breathe out. Breathe in again and stretch your shoulders and stretch elbow and try to pull, keeping the lock, do it all, let it go. Once more, breathe in deep, become so uptight and stiff that whole blood can go to the brain and change the gray matter and leave you alone from all this sickness, come on let’s try it. Go, relax. 1 min.
People are not suffering anymore, but there is a silent cry of the heart, which they can feel it but cannot hear it. And that is, when time is changing from the age of Pisces to Age of Aquarius. There is nothing to convince. You have food, you have home, you have sex, you have relationship, but you don’t have a peace. Today as our bodies are temple of God, which is there are their outhouse. We are surviving, let us see how we are surviving. Our fantasies are so much and we cannot fantasize collectively right, we take drugs so we can fantasize, that been expansion of our brain cells, which when contract, collapse.
We know how to extend ourselves, we know how to promise friends, we know how to talk to people, but we have not learnt the character to deliver things. So, neither we can trust anybody nor any body can trust. And the harsh way of knowing the truth and experience is very uncommon.
You want something easy, concessional, where you be appreciated. Therefore it is very, almost impossible to make a change. And when the age is changing, changes in negative, there is nothing you can do about it. Under this roof now, Catholics are sitting, protestants, seven day Adventist, Lothian’s, etcetera, etcetera, some other religion, Jews, may be somebody is a Muslim, somebody is a Hindu. Question is not our religion, question is that of reality.
People have to know, what reality they have. People have to know, what intelligence they have, people want to know is there any chance to live consciously. Twenty-five, twenty-eight years ago I came here, in United States and I said, “I have not come here to get students, I have come here to create teachers for the Aquarian Age.”
At that time, these words were just very foreign alien, so lot of people had lot of questions. Somewhere along the line, some of the great students of mine thought, they can topsy-turvy anything, everything, they couldn’t. Passage goes on. Teaching was my extra hobby. I have never depended on a student, neither will, nor a student is good enough who can take the weight, rather now I am in trouble, I have fourteen corporations and millions of dollars of land and properties, which I have to hand over to somebody. Somebody among you, who do not deserve to have it, but desire to have it, but by the will of the God and law of this planet, it has to go to somebody.
Somebody, who knows how to forgive, somebody, who know to, how to serve, somebody, who knows how to elevate, somebody, who knows, in spite of all the rotten things, one has to be conscious and graceful. Somebody, with the faculties, which cannot be defined as ordinary. It has always happened. What is happening to me shall happen to you too. Why with every odd, I am even? Because when I was very young, I disciplined myself and continued to discipline myself.
So I have found on this life, there is only one thing very precious, that is very private and that is very personal discipline. The purpose of chanting, the Aquarian Age mantras doesn’t make you a Sikh. Sikh means to learn. Learn those words, which that with the sound current and with a musical self, can affect your cosmenology, your reality. It is not something, which you can do, if you do not feel in your soul, that’s why in last twenty-eight years, we have never initiated anybody. You cannot aim to be a student of Kundalini yoga, if you do not initiate yourself. And it’s true, if you are that foolish, why should we initiate you? Initiate yourself, if you have some grace left and you want something and you want to see the unseen, know the unknown, hear the unheard, and speak the entire time, out of pure wisdom.
You know, whichever field of your life you are, you want to be popular, you want to be recognized, you want to be established, you want people should give you regards. I am asking a question, why? Why anybody should give you regard? You are on sale. You are always compromising your values and you are always on sale. No woman have met yet, who just glorify and glows her own beauty, her spirituality and her grace, is that her beauty? It’s all these makeup and trying to look this and that, is that is the only beauty? Isn’t that a man who shows courage and manners and commitment and character, is that not a beauty? There are beauties, which last for ever and there is a beauty which lasts few minutes.
Now, mankind is passing through the Age of Pisces to Age of Aquarius. Now, it doesn’t matter, how much you know, that’s nothing, now it’s a information age, get on the computer press two buttons and press the third one, you can get anything you want. It’s an information age. First, it was a computer age, ho big computer, now it is information age, majority of you can’t sleep at night. Last night I experimented. I said, “Tonight, we will not sleep, we will watch movies.” And one after the other, finally, in the morning, it was bruise hour, I said, “Stop it, lets stick to God is not practical.”
