It is true that we have got the human body. It is true that we have the sensitivity and desires. It is true that we can lead our life the way we want. We are very free. It is also true that we can live our whole life as purely obnoxious, indecent human being. And it is true that we can achieve godhood and can become saints. All is true. I am not dealing with those who are a mess. This congregation is for those who wants to get rid of the mess. We are sitting at the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's feet not here to be neurotic, we have the experience and we know that. Neither here I am discussing with you how to go to Las Vegas and what number combination you can have that you can win the jackpot or something like that.

I have in these twelve years have met people who have millions of dollars, but they are sick to death. I have seen people who have family, but they do not know how to love their family. I have seen people who are very gracious and outspoken, but they are so much coward inside that they do not know how to stand up. I have seen people who are beautiful, and God made them I think on some special Christmas holidays featured them well, but they are so bad in their behavior that you don't want to be around them. I have experienced that. And then I sit down sometime I wonder why this is happening? After all we feel that with wealth we can totally create our environments to the happiness that we can get rid of our pain. The purpose of life is to live happy. You have to be happy to be divine. You have to get out of the law of polarity otherwise you can't find the grace in you. It is not possible. GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. chose the way of family, family wherever we are, whoever we are we must understand that God's will is to create a family and to inspire a family to inspire another family. We live by the law of seeds, they call it seed to seed. That is my environments, my circumstances should be such that whosoever comes in the area of influence and touch he must find peace and godliness. The greatest thing is we are very desirable to desire. And we feel more we desire more we fulfill our desire we are good, but actually the highest desire is to become desireless. That's the only desire, which is worth anything. Because you must understand when you were a child you were innocent, you had a milk from the bosom of your mother. Moment you become desirous and you started playing games, everything else you have to hassle for.

Law of desire is to desire, to accumulate, to think, to run. And the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. says it is just like that that deer who has musk in his navel pointNavel Point The sensitive area of the body near the umbilicus that accumulates and stores life force. It is the reserve energy from this area that initiates the flow of the Kundalini energy from the base of the spine. If the navel area is strong, your vital force and health are also strong. and he runs and runs and runs and runs like a mad runs. And finally one day he gets struck and hit and he falls and his own neck breaks and hits the navel and he smells the musk before death. And that is what you he said to himself you were running for, you were running for this musk.

Majority of you, majority, majority when I say word majority I say eighty-five percent. Eighty-five percent of you constitute a majority. Eighty-five percent you are mad and hungry and angry on your birth. Which you were born you picked up the first thing was anger. Because you have to understand your act of birth is only one act, but your nursement for that act is when you were born and you were conceived and when you deliver yourself to take the first breath. And that is about nine months time. In those nine months time you must, must not have any kind of misunderstanding that according to you those nine months are just you know you are born, you are grown, and you have done everything. But that's not true. Your entire constitution and your elements are proportioned, I say it is a total scientific what I am telling you. Your all elements are proportion in those nine months. That is why the highest act of life is to be a mother. It's a natural phenomena, which you have to understand and highest act of life is to be a father. I mean to say I have nothing against them, but I think except these people are cursed by the act of God which destroy their families. Reasons can be so many, I can I can accuse my wife that she is short, she should be tall. That's a very sound reason. It's a very valid reason. She should be very careful. She should stretch herself everyday. And if she can't come out to be now six foot two inches I have found out after fifty-two year an age she is short in size that's all, and therefore be divorced. I mean you can go anyway. I have seen people divorcing each other that no human consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. can even think of.

It is one of the funniest thing I remember once I was counseling a couple and he said, "I cannot live with this woman at all."

I said, "What is it?"

"She eats me up at night."

I say, "Well, you know give her a big dinner at night so that she may not be hungry next morning, what are you saying that she eats me up?"

He said, "Well, she eats me up."

Finally after half an hour he came out with the suggestion.

"She snores a lot and I can't sleep."

And I ask her, she said, "Yogiji this is totally a lie, he is the one who snore, I am the one who has to go through this torture."

And that is true that guy snores so much that he listens his own snore.

(Student's laughter)

And accuses his wife that she is the one who snores. But this all can happen in the western world, I mean to say I have no objection to that you can do whatever you want to do.

And it is very funny when I talk to the ladies here and when they want to break the relationship O God, you go through...you know I have seen Himalayas the mountains are layer after layer after layer, after layer, it is endless, it is endless. Their attitude towards family life is endless.

I was reading a article today that sixty to eighty percent people in the army are high on drugs and this our naval ship got damaged by the pilots landing on it and when they tested their body they found they were high on the drugs. So I mean we have a sophisticated army and we have a sophisticated defense wisdom that people who have to run that army for drug addicts, instead of going and sending a missile, back to our enemy they will send the missile to our friends and that's what we are going to be. And it cannot stop, don't misunderstand. Because you are animal you are lustful, you are desirably desiring everything which is animal nature. You are not desiring to be of higher consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . Therefore, you and your products.

The life of a Sikh is very simple. It's a very simple test of a life of a Sikh. Life of a Sikh is just like water. Wherever the water touches the land it makes it green. Life of a Sikh is wherever he is, whosoever he touches it should bring life, it should bring the greenness of it, it brings the essence of truth. Truth is the greenness of life. Otherwise, otherwise life cannot be happy.

There are two hundred and twenty million Americans. And they are unhappy. They know it. I am not putting down America. You know people are so sick now I am American myself and they tell me Yogiji you are putting down America.

I am not putting America I am putting you creeps down who live on this country, eat of this country and you came sick from Europe, you were all criminals thrown out of these are colonies, you couldn't make up your life there, you got thrown here, you came here as immigrants. You were all with one suitcase and one bad as I came too and I dwell in God and you dwell in devil. And you are making this beautiful land first you killed the Indians here and then now you are killing each other and now ultimately you are killing your consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. by drugs. Everybody is alcoholic. Martini on the rock is your religion, there is no Christ, absolutely forget it. There is no Christian. Martini on the rockism

(Student's laughter)

That is the religion and three, five, four shots, you can't even sleep you are so sick. My parents, my children, my family, I don't believe there is anything.

There is a one girl she called me in the morning, she was very disturbed, "Emergency, emergency, emergency I want to speak to sss emergency."

I say, "What is the emergency."

I came on the telephone I said, "Hey what is the emergency?"

She said, "My mom talked to me last night she freaked out."

I say, "What else she could do?"

"What should I do?"

I say, "Call her now, call her now and she'll be just perfect, beautiful like musical instrument."

"Are you sure?"

I said, "Sure."

I said, "You call her, don't bother me you call her talk to her and then talk to me. After an hour a call came, "Yes Yogiji how you know?"

I said, "Last night Martini on the rock was speaking tonight this morning your mother is speaking." That's why I advised people not to talk to their parents at night, because if they are talking to their parents plus. In the morning at about 7 O'clock, 6 O'clock they are only parents, nothing more than that. You can speak very well, you can communicate better.

(?) is now at a very poor level. I am not willing to blame A, I am not willing to blame B. You are not aware about one thing, which I am aware about. About which I talk, which I speak to you, I warn you and that is the capacity to be honest. I am not sarcastically or judgmentally saying whether you are honest you are not honest. I am not saying that, don't misunderstand me. I am saying the capacity to be honest is missing. That is missing. That is not there. When capacity to be honest is missing or will not be there in the full swing or full capacity then to amend thing wrong will be very difficult. And that is why we require to look to the God and GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. , we require to look to our own confrontation. Before we confront anybody and get into trouble we are required to look into ourself. Our life will be happy in proportion to our honesty in capacity, that's a law. I can't change it, you can't change it. Lot of people, I give you my example I am a humble Sikh of the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. . I came here, lot of people tried to slander me. Lot of people threatened me. Lot of people did weird things. Nothing bothered. Because I honestly believe that all of you can learn to be happy, but the difficulty is the process to learn is pretty difficult. It is. Because it does not cater the process to be happy the methodology to be happy does not cater to your blocking and your defense mechanism and your way of life, that cannot give you happiness. Happiness can come to you when you can understand that God has blessed you to be in America and the slogan in America is in God we trust, therefore, for everything you should trust God. You say it, you write it on the money bill. You write it on walls. You write it everywhere in God we trust and you don't trust anything in God. You trust your ego.

You have built high churches when I came in here I saw this tent and I looked at it. I said, "This is the blessed tent. It is much more blessed than anything. At least people sit here to dwell in consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. of divinity and God.

GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. speaks to you. GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. speaks to you in a very simple words. GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. speaks to you by telling you o man by changing your hats, by changing your forms, by changing your games, by changing your everything it is not going to work. Average life is sixty-five years and sixty-five years of beautiful life you just waste in just these games in reactions. So and so said to me therefore I have to say so and so. I mean to say what a crazy mind is if I abuse you, you abuse me, we are at the same level. If I am of a higher mind, if somebody abuse me I just laugh. I laugh in gratitude. I laugh in grace. Oh thank you God on the other side is sitting some crazy person, at least I am not.

Don't you understand that? Why to react? Why to react and make your life just a reaction and never...I tell you very simple thing. If life is nothing but reaction achievement will be zero. Because if your life is reaction then you do not know who you are, then keep on reacting all your life. Act, react, react, act, be dead. That's all be gone, then what you came for. You came for here to know who you are, you came for here to know what God is, you came for the sensitivity given to you the mind, the mind is to be conquered. Don't try to conquer people, conquer your mind.

It is very funny, I sit sometime and my total staff advice me, you know I take their advice very seriously. I consider their advice very seriously because that's the only thing, which tells me the reaction of the American or the western mind. I always know what to do, but its my obligation to listen to their mind.

And one thing they always say, when you are going to react to it?

I say, "I don't have the machinery."

(?) I threw away in real grinding. I have lived many lives. I have been killed many ways. I have been tortured and put to death in many ways. I know that. And that's the only way I have joked with them. And now death doesn't mean anything either. Death only means that I'll not give up my grace, but shall welcome my friend death.

Do you understand the consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. ? Whenever your mind can achieve this state of equilibrium that for any desire for any temptation and for any disgrace, for any torture what I am talking about is pressures and temptations, there are two things. Listen to this carefully, there are two things in life temptation and...

Students: Pressure.

YB: Temptation and pressure when you do not give into temptation and pressure you find who you are. And before falling you die then you are a saint, and you are a real soldier. Everything else is past my friends. And there is a secret to happiness.Happiness has a key to it. Happiness walks on two legs, relax and rejoice.

Why I am saying all these to you? Because all things come from God and all things?

Student: Goes to God.

YB: You are not afraid of the unseen hand of the God and I am afraid, I am afraid. I have seen it, I see it, I see happening.

I remember once I was taken to some person's bed and they said, "Yogiji if you pray if this man can live."

I said, "I'll pray but this man is not going to live."

"Why?"

I say, "The guy to take away his soul is standing right on him what I am going to do? What I should do? Switch is already off. Switch is up there, life is not going to flow. Now you want make me to pray." I said.

"Then what you want to do they said."

I say, "I can do a prayer. You call me for prayer, I'll do the prayer."

I said, "My prayer is O God, O GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. this man has been sick all his life, never did a one right thing."

(Student's laughter)

"He was a living curse around, but at this time, he is fortunate. He is very fortunate because you have guided me to come here to pray for this. I ask for one forgiveness that give him one more chance, so that he can redeem his karmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions. Ego attaches us to and identifies us with objects, feelings, and thoughts. These attachments create a bias toward certain lines of action. Instead of acting you begin reacting. Karmas are the conditions required in order to balance or complete these tendencies. Though necessary, karma is not dictatorial or fatalistic. It is the mechanism that allows the finite experience of existence to maintain and stabilize itself. We all have free will and can take actions to re-direct the momentum of a karma. We can transform it or neutralize it using meditation, jappa, good deeds, or intuition that remove your sense of ego and the identification with that past line of action. ." And the guy opened his eyes and they were lit like a light that was his last moment of life and he looked at me and say, "Yogiji SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Sat Naam , Sat Nam The essence or seed embodied in form; the identity of truth. When used as a greeting it means "I greet and salute that reality and truth which is your soul." It is called the Bij Mantra - the seed for all that comes. Sat Naam , Sat Nam The essence or seed embodied in form; the identity of truth.

A Naam gives identity, form, and expression to that which was only essence or subtle before. It is also referred to as the Word. ."

And that's it.

I say, "My God he got to God faster than anything else I have ever seen."

(Student's laughter)

The last breath the word uttered was SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Sat Naam , Sat Nam The essence or seed embodied in form; the identity of truth.

God has many mysterious ways, therefore, don't try to play with the someone,

(?)

With that God master you don't have your leave way, you crazy bums. I should tell you Saad sangath. You are saad sangath when you attach with the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. . You are not Saad sangath when you are not attached, then you are crazy bums.

(?)

With that God the master you don't have any leave way. Tisko sada bow to him, accept His will. That is what is called is accepting the will. You have to learn to accept what is God's will and what is God's will. Some people start saying what is God will? It is very simple you are all very intelligent, you all know what is God's will. God will is not to take four shots of bourbon on the rock and then think. God's will is calm down and think right and see where righteousness is, where righteousness is, dwell in that. God's will is,

"Aad sach, Jugad sach, Hai bhee sach Nanak hosee bhee sach"

Truth will live. Truth will live. Truth will live, sacrifice for truth will live. Patience will live. Tolerance will live. Service for others will live. Sacrifice, exploitation will not live. You cannot be better exploiter than Karoh.

King Karoh was such a exploiter that one day he said, "If anybody can give me one gold coin in my entire kingdom, I'll marry my daughter."

Somebody said, "Why you are doing it?"

He said, "Well, I want to know if somebody has last left coin."

So this guy went to his grandmother and said, "Grandma I just want to marry the princess."

She said, "You can't marry the princess. You know the condition?"

He say, "I know the condition, condition is I need to produce one gold coin."

She said, "We don't have it."

He said, "Grandma please do something."

She said, "You know in olden days when we used to bury our elders we used to put a gold coin in their mouth, may be your grandfather or great grandfather may have a gold coin in the mouth."

He said, "Fine." He went to grandfather's grave, dig it out, open the mouth, he found a coin. He came back I need not have to go to great grandfather I found it in grandfather's mouth, here it is.

She said, "Go take it to the king, he will live to his words."

So this simple innocent people so they went to the court, and they say, "King, Karoh, this is it, this is a gold coin, you marry your daughter."

O my God his king fell, he couldn't believe it. So he got mad like an hell, put this guy in the dungeon and tortured him, "How you found it?"

He said, "This is how I found it don't beat me for that, I'll just you simple thing."

He dug up every grave in his kingdom. He collected gold and valuable,

(?)

That's GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. 's words. Chalee ganj, chalee ganj, one ganj is when you take a full size human arrow, human arrow is six feet, naturally the bow must be very big and you take that and you take that and you go in one direction forty lengths. Then go this way forty lengths, go that way forty length, go this way forty length, go up forty length and if that area is covered with gold stock it is called ganj. One arrow full length on each side and height and if you have party that kind of areas topped with gold it is called forty ganj, chalee ganj that's the area of one ganj. This guy was crazy.

GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. went there met him. He loved him. He served him. He asked for forgiveness when the departure was, GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. say, "No, I have one job you collect lot of things."

He said, "Yes."

He say, "Here is the needle keep this with promise when we meet in heaven we'll exchange, I'll get my needle back from you."

So after GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. departed, he came in and he told his wife, this is what happened.

She said, "Crazy man why you took, you took away money from everybody I can understand, but why you took that needle from that saintly man?"

He say, "He gave it to me."

She say, "What he said? He said, in the other world you gave it back to him. How you are going to carry this?"

So he ran after GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. brought him back.

He said, "Sir, take this needle back."

GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. said, "I don't want to take back, I am going to take it in the next world. I gave it to you as a deposit."

And he said, "I can't give it to you in next world."

And he say, "All this money you stole from people how you are going to give them back? How that is going to work out Lord? Now you are a forceful, powerful king, and with the power of the sword and mercy you are doing it, how you are going to do it?"

His eyes opened, he returned everything to his people and lived there after.

So when you are young you are desirable, you are lustful, you do weird things. When you will be sixty, seventy at the word of death what your desire will be your friend or GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's word will be your friend. Can you at that time get high with Martini and rock and all that stuff?

Side B

So it is very desirable that if this time of life when you can do it or you can undo it, unfold your personality of righteousness and live in truth. This is the only country where I have found people are obnoxious and when we tell them you are obnoxious and don't be obnoxious.

They say, "When, when I am obnoxious?"

And they don't have the capacity even to say all right, I am sorry I was in future I won't be. No, when I was obnoxious let me know.

So in other words if some company, instrument company can make a instrument that they carry around their neck.

I was suggesting somebody in New York, I say, "If you can make an instrument which can be around people's neck and it can have lot of tapes in it, not for CIA or FBI or for anything. For their own sake if they listen what they talk whole day, whole day what they say and how they say and what they say and then in the night they switch back to listening themself I think it will solve our eighty percent of problem."

I am not, I am just in a quandary, I am not in a position to find out anywhere that I can ask you and make you understand to confront your own self. Because it is easy to do wrong things when you are young. It is very difficult to pay, pay for them when you are old.

There is a very funny thing here, here people are so crazy I mean to say I have seen insanity of many kinds, but this insanity I have not seen. People are afraid to be party.

(Student's laughter)

I mean you know it God...well I am sitting before the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. I have never had an experience with that kind of act somebody. I thought if you live up to forty you should be grateful to God and that day make a big lungarLangar , Lungar Free kitchen associated with Sikh worship service. and have akandpat and rejoice it that you touched forty. There are millions who do not even go forty. Because each day given to you in life is to redeem yourself, each moment. Each one, who knows when that moment can come when you can listen to the truth and be the truth. That's what life, life is very essential, it is very beautiful. It's most wonderful thing is life. Because life is not body, don't think in as kamjaath, prostitute. Kamjaath means prostitute, she thinks of body I am getting old I can't dance, I can't prostitute I can't make more money, I can't live. That's not the purpose of life. Purpose of life is to find the kasam.

Kasam na visrey, kasam sarey teykamjaath. When she forgets the kasam then she is a prostitute. This soul, this soul the bride when she forgets the kasam, she becomes the prostitute. Kasam na visrey, the God must not be. God must dwell in you. You must dwell in God. This relationship has to be experienced. It has to be found out. That's the purpose of life and that's why each breath of life is very beautiful. It's a gift of God and this gift can come to you just once out of eight point four million life times, you can find this gift. In once a year we have ladies camp here. Lot of things do not happen again and again.

It was very wonderful once somebody said to me, "You are not my teacher I deny you."

I say, "O thank you very much."

(Student's laughter)

"I think I am very privileged."

Later on one of her friend said, "Why you said that?"

I say, "This person has taken eight point four million lifetime to nine hundred thousand lifetime of light years praying to find me as her teacher. That in the Earth year comes to about seventy million life years. And I say in one little telephone call if she said, you are not my teacher, I am the only blessed one. Because my obligation is over."

There is nothing to find, there is nothing to say, there is nothing to go for, it's all over. Because you do not know what is at stake therefore, for you, because that's the difference of consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself.

We are sitting here before the word of God, in the beginning there was a word, in the beginning there was a word, word was with God and word was God. So in the beginning there was a word of God, now is the word of God and in the end is going to be word of God. What we are training you is to create a relationship with word of God. Because that was, that is, and that shall be. To attract you we play music. We bring a yogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended.

We even give you lungarLangar , Lungar Free kitchen associated with Sikh worship service. . We do everything just to create one fundamental thing, nothing else.

I have danced so many dances, you know when I used to live with hippies you do not know what I used to, you saw me then you say forget it, this man I am not going to study with anybody else is okay.

(Student's laughter)

Because with those weirdos I used to be a super weirdo.

(Student's laughter)

Only where you can convince a weirdo be a super weirdo.

(Student's laughter)

And I did that. But what was the idea? Idea was the water, Earth needs water to create something. I knew that they need me, I need them to create something. Today we are a khalsa nation and we will expand and we shall rule this planet Earth for five thousand years. We'll save it from disaster. All prophecies which has been made by men of God shall come true. But I am not saying everybody will go through it, because everybody has to go through at the rate of their projection of consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. .

The idea, the motivated behind whole thing is, it is not motivated that I should live. I have no desire to live or to die. I have no desire to be worshiped or to be insulted. I have no desire to be rich or to be poor. I have no desire. I have every desire I am willing to do everything positive and negative both for one thing. That somehow you can learn to be acquainted with or in love with or no with. The word of God.

Why we call it word of God? Because these are all people who were divine, absolutely who spoke with God in the oneness, in the firstness of their life, and it is all compiled together and if you can understand it, love it, and be with it and totally in the depth of you it can come you are perfect, you will never find a problem. You saw that shabadShabad , Shabd Sound, especially subtle sound or sound imbued with consciousness. It is a property or emanation of consciousness itself. If you meditate on shabad it awakens your awareness. how GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru.

Talk to the outer form of the yogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended.

One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. . And in the end a beautiful thing was said, "YogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. you are blessed."

The path of yog is not a easy path. Path of God is no more easy than easiness you can imagine or think. You think by going Sunday to church you can reach God, you forget it, not at all. I tell you if you are a Christian you make your body as a church and ring the bell of the holy NamNaam , Nam The manifested identity of the essence. The word derives from Naa-ay-ma , which means "that which is not, now is born." A Naam gives identity, form, and expression to that which was only essence or subtle before. It is also referred to as the Word. in it and meditate to the extent that you can be painless and you be on the cross within itself. And your essence and your senses be nailed down on that cross, within your own essence of fiber. Then your continuous rosary be consciously of that of a devotee. In essence you become the dwelling, living place of God itself and then you call yourself Christian, otherwise you are absolutely a hypocrite.

What is the problem here is by the outside form, outside form and outside commitment is one. Inside form and inside commitment is the second and then the resolution can be passed. First you propose, then you second it and then it is yours. So what I am trying to suggest to you in the purpose of life is that you, your grace and your essence of life. You, your grace and your essence of life must be focused on one point. Don't misunderstand that I don't' get upset. When I get upset GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's word come handy.

(Student's laughter)

So I become calm. That's the difference. You got to know who you are and you got to judge who you are and you got to understand who you are in the world of God. Don't judge yourself with your own intelligence, then you will be egomaniac. Don't judge yourself with your possibilities everything can go wrong. Because you must understand when you make a scheme here within the time you finish this scheme the Earth has already moved. Magnetic fields are already changed, environments and projection are already drawn into the gamma intelligence of the theta into the alpha-beta of consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . What did I say?

(Student's laughter)

You don't know, you don't know anything I know that, therefore lot of thing I don't say, I just try to talk very simple. The circumvent, the circumvent of the psyche of the centripetal and centrifugal forces changes with the rotation of longitude and latitude and it does affect the magnetic field and psyche of your mind, therefore, whatever you are planning now is already changed now. Whatever you are planning now is already changed now, because the magnetic field of the planet Earth is subject to the cosmos, therefore, the cosmetic situation the cosmos has more psyche and powerful psyche than you little teeny-tiny humans, you are too little. Too little. You are hundred billionth in magnitude to one longitude and latitude. Now where, where you exist? You don't exist? So what you want is you want to plan, you want to do it, and you want to be and you want to tamper your ego. I did it. No, no you didn't exist. You were not there. You are an instrument of destruction or you are instrument of construction. You are instrument of devil. Or you can be instrument of divine, that is called free charge, that is yours. But remember truth shall prevail. Truth shall live. And truth is all happiness. Truth is what God is. God is what truth is.

Why we read Siri GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. . Because these word can come in our diaan. Our attention, in our attention if all this good words of godly people can be there, we can be totally liberated, we can be guided, we can be guarded. Because whenever for doing something we start thinking and in that thinking screen, in that computer GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's words start coming. Whenever somebody does anything to me this word comes to me, moorkey naal na ulajiye, with a foolish person don't indulge. And I say myself well this is the fool, why I should participate with that at all. I am nothing to common with this guy. Let the hand of God take care of him, why should I even bother my hands?

One funny day somebody was very, very rudely obnoxious and there was no other way, but to beat a hell out of him and throw him out. And I said very calmly and smiled over it. Later on the teacher of the Hacienda de Guru Ram Das , The Ashram The grounds of Yogi Bhajan's traditional home and ranch in Espanola, NM, as well the surrounding businesses, gurdwara and langar hall. ashramHacienda de Guru Ram Das , The Ashram The grounds of Yogi Bhajan's traditional home and ranch in Espanola, NM, as well the surrounding businesses, gurdwara and langar hall.

I said, "Look I never wanted to bother my hands because with these hand I ate in the morning prasad why should I choose these hands to just even get near the psyche of this person, I don't like to bother myself." So you must understand the secret of happiness is when things come to you dwell in you and this life which you have got is a very beautiful life, it's a competent life, it has the power, it has the capacity to make you happy. And all these days I am talking to you and you don't understand me, because 1980s are not going to be normal years for United States. For us Americans we have to tighten our belt and we have to be very resolute to recapture and re conquer our consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. to rebuilt our land and protect our freedom and to bring happiness back home and that only can be if we trust in. Therefore, I say to you that try to live the truth, try to know the truth. Try to live the truth and try to be the truth.
