(00:52:20)

The story I'll like to relate to you today is very simple, it is the story of a girl who is the prettiest of all, so beautiful and so pretty and so wonderful that it was the God's part and God wanted its own part and there is no doubt about it. Visiting a very beautiful planet Earth she came with ten consignments maid servants and started understanding and development of the planet Earth, she has five maids stronger than the sense of the male hood and she has projections brighter than the light of God and 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. itself.

I am talking to you about your soul, each soul which visits the planet Earth has ten bodiesTen Bodies We are all spiritual beings having a human experience. In order to have this experience the spirit takes on 10 bodies or vehicles. They are the Soul Body, the three Mental Bodies (Negative, Positive, and Neutral Minds), the Physical Body, Pranic Body, Arcline Body, Auric Body, Subtle Body, and Radiant Body. Each body has its own quality, function, and realm of action. , five tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. which are the consigned companions and the wonder of this world are not prettier or beautiful than her own brightness, her own beauty and her own light. When we come here we become very physical, because we dwell in the physical body we think that that's all it is about. We totally forget that when we have to leave we have to leave in the subtle bodySubtle Body See Ten Bodies. and we are not subtle in our life style. Subtle life style wants to be confirmed characteristically and in conception that's the human necessity. You should be so committed so confirm in your character that nothing can buy you, nothing can sell you nothing can shake you, nothing can change you, no perversion, diversion, or detour means anything to you.

And if there is any love of soul forget about God which is the master soul of all souls, you should not have any fear of death and you have no right mentally even in thoughts to be revengeful. And these are certain things, which are called the spiritual characteristics. But the funniest part is for thousands and thousands and hundred thousand years we have been practicing the hypocrisy of the religion and spirituality. What so far has been done on this planet Earth in the name of religion is so shamefully shocking that it is impossible for a man of a common sense even to believe the persecution, the torture, can you believe that the believer of Jesus Christ once caught nine hundred pregnant women of the Turks in the time of the crusades to the commanding officer the situation was what to do with them, they killed all men and slaved every able woman, but what to do them they were not in a position to walk back, they were not in a position to leave them and what to do. The orders were their bellies be chopped and their children be killed.

Now can I explain to you if Christ would have been there himself what would have happened to him? Who did not let throw one stone on a prostitute? And these are the human interpretation of the religion, the science of reality, the eternal truth. Gradually we have been trying not even that part of us that we can relate to our own soul. The known part of God, which a man can relate to is ones own soul. It is amazing that we are like tribes, life style tribes and all we want on this planet is to control. If one has to control something one should control ones own passion. Because passion is so heated up pushing situation it blinds you, it blinds you to reality, passion is not bad if diverted right, it's a stimulant. When the inside stimulant is not there that is why people use drugs, don't blame them.

It's my experience in fifteen years all those people who have empty inside and they don't have a stimulant they have two ways to do it, get the natural stimulant and unnatural stimulant. Drugs are unnatural stimulant and there are natural stimulants. But we need stimulant, actually the real stimulant, which divine God gave us is our own passion, which in essence can be used and spread equally in our life and we'll be perfectly happy. And if passion in essence is developed to the height of its purity then it is called compassion. Because you will then be very happy to do something for others and not expect anything in return. So that you do things for other and expect even in behavior I love you, you love me how can you be mad at me? You are criticizing me, you are not good to me. We have a simple question in our daily simple dealings we are not reasonably compassionate. We cannot give one thing, give time to other people. Give them time, give them space.

Time and space belong to God not to you. In our daily behavior let us dwell in the light of our soul and give other time and space, things will be all set right for us and for the other people, nobody will be hurt. There shall be eternal peace, eternal joy, eternal acknowledgement. You can talk to anybody, everybody if you want to give another person time and space. No, you want to control the time and space of another person, that is impossible. God will not let you do this injustice. You have to understand God created a individual in His own perfection, in His own light, in His own shadow, in His own shade, in His own darkness, call it anything I don't care. But fact is nobody has produced anybody. A mother gives birth she doesn't produce. No person other than God is individually responsible to create a creation, it takes two to create a creation and it takes two to create a creation both must have their time and space.

What we do is we create earthquake, one plate wants to go over the other. You know what happens? When the plates collide destruction and that is why wherever there is head to head collision there is a destruction. The entire city of San Francisco went down the hill because that saint some Andrew Fort whatever they call it there is some fault, exactly in your life there is one fault. Where two egos meet, what is a fault. Fault is a place where two egos meet and want to jump over each other. Earthquake will happen, everything will be destroyed.

It is very surprising my fifteen years experience in west is everybody wants to deal with ego, nobody use 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. . ConsciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself.

If you don't have time and space you can share with somebody time and space you can give it to somebody time and space. It is required that you should have what you want to give.

Yesterday we were on a telephone with somebody again and again, I feel rejected, I feel rejected, now what you can do, if a person feel rejected? Why you feel rejected? I don't know and then I answered, you feel rejected because that gives you a tension and you love to be in pain. You want me to hang the telephone on you when you say see even Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. hung on me, can you believe that certification? It's a medal, it's a trophy.

Somebody brought to me once he said, "Well, I killed this bear."

I said, "For what?"

"It's a trophy."

I said, "It's fine, if you killed, it attacked you and you killed I can understand but if you killed for trophy then have it."

After couple of days he said, "You want the skin of that bear?"

I said, "No, I don't want the bear, by the way what you are talking?"

He said, "They are asking me five hundred dollars to make this thing, I don't have it."

I said, "You should have thought before you killed it. You should have given that thing time and space, you killed it for trophy and now keep it."

To keep a relationship, relationship between each individual to each individual is soul light to soul light magnetic field to magnetic field it's a trophy it can be maintained don't kill it. Create a relationship you have to shoot, shoot it with camera rather than with a rifle. The angry words are the bullets, sweet words are the shots of the camera. They remain in memory, I am trying to speak to you in the language of Alaska.

(Student's laughter)

I am trying to reach you and I am trying to reach you what I feel is in the air here. Death, aggressiveness, but don't you understand even the planet here moves very slowly? What is the speed of the Earth at equator is not here. Things are pretty slow, and if you are luckily here take it easy, the soul has the light, God gave it to you, not to develop relationship with soul means you will never have relationship with your ten bodiesTen Bodies We are all spiritual beings having a human experience. In order to have this experience the spirit takes on 10 bodies or vehicles. They are the Soul Body, the three Mental Bodies (Negative, Positive, and Neutral Minds), the Physical Body, Pranic Body, Arcline Body, Auric Body, Subtle Body, and Radiant Body. Each body has its own quality, function, and realm of action. and if you will not have relationship with your radiant body nothing will work for you, nothing, period. I am standing here and saying to you point blank. Then you have to substitute like as you substitute your life with drugs, you substitute with money, you substitute with sex, you substitute with everything and that too won't work because that will be only temporary because then it will take two people to work it out and you may be ready to have sex, other may not be, you may be ready to play money other person may not be, you may be ready to be manipulate anybody other person may not be willing to get manipulated. You will meet failures and then there will be pain and then there will be disease and then there will be one thing follow the other. But if you just let it be, give everybody time and space because God gave them time and space and let it be and relate with your own soul. We read in the word 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. ,

"Yeh mana merya, sadaaa raho Har naley Har naal raho tu mann merey dukh sab vasarna, angee kaaro karey tera kaarey sab savarna, sabna galna simrat swamiSwami Master. sou kyu mann vasarey, kahey Nanak mann merey sadaa raho harnaley"

We never closed the congregation without reading this same.

Yeh mana merya sadaa raho harnaley, O my mind be with the God, Har Naal, Har means God, Naal means with. Har naal raho tu mun merey dukh sab visarna, to be with God all the sins will depart, all the pain will go. Naturally it will. If you are walking with the governor of state of Alaska at that time you don't worry that somebody will give you a ticket. J walking no policemen will give you J walking, rather they will guide you anywhere you want to go. So if you will start walking with you feel pride, meeting the governor, meeting the secretary. Those wife came here everybody was dolling around, you know. But what I am saying is that if you move with governor that you feel pride can't you not feel pride moving with God? You will.

Har naal raho tu mann merey dukh sab vasarna, angee kaaro karey tera kaarey sab savarna.

God by His virtue for His own grace will take care of your everything. Your all deeds will be successfully finished.

sabna galna simrat swamiSwami Master. sou kyu mann vasarey

Oh fool God is competent of all competency. Why to forget that? You don't forget the governor, you don't forget husband, you don't forget wife, you don't forget this, you don't forget that, and you forget who is competent of all competency.

sabna galna simrat swamiSwami Master. sou kyu mann vasarey, kahey Nanak mann merey sadaa raho harnaley

Therefore, says Nanak be with the God all the time. You can practice lot of hypocrisy and still feel spiritual that is just going to a university giving fifty thousand dollar donation and getting a Ph.D. You can write it, you can use it, you can have the paper but somebody tells you what is what you don't know a word. Fifty thousand dollars can buy you Ph.D., out of but it will be honorary, you are very honorable that's why they gave you, because you gave your fifty thousand dollars, but that does not make you doctorate. Virtue of life is to live the life, virtue of life is to live with the tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. and virtue of life is to understand the ten bodiesTen Bodies We are all spiritual beings having a human experience. In order to have this experience the spirit takes on 10 bodies or vehicles. They are the Soul Body, the three Mental Bodies (Negative, Positive, and Neutral Minds), the Physical Body, Pranic Body, Arcline Body, Auric Body, Subtle Body, and Radiant Body. Each body has its own quality, function, and realm of action. , which are the companion of the body of all this spiritual body the soul. And if you don't let spirit of you relate to the other body which are spiritual body mental negative, positive, neutral and all that line up and all the tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. how can your soul be happy and be for you? You take away from her all the socialites and confine her in a single confinement.

You know what they do to the people who mess up in the jails, what do they do them? They confine them in a...

Student: Solitary.

YB: Solitary confinement six foot by eight foot cell, dark and put them in. What happens to them? After ten, twenty days when they come out they are almost dead, that's what you are doing to your soul, you are not letting this most beautiful radiant shining thing to relate to your own tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities.

And trying to run your life with a pure ego, with ego of money, ego of work, ego of politics, ego of this, ego of manipulation, ego of body, ego of that... My dear friends just learn and remember nothing will work that way. It has never worked and it will not work and therefore it is useless even to try. Give the space so that the soul can be radiant, give it time so it can work and give yourself so that your radiant body can work wherever you are present, God be present there, remember because God is in you it has not to be brought outside. It is my virtuous prayer that God gave you time and space to live you enjoy it and enjoy it to the extremity of your own unisonness with Almighty God so that you can go back home happy, healthy, and holy and shining, smiling and graceful.

Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. and night and day the man sings the lord's praises within his mind. They who apply the dust of the true 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.
