SIDE-A

Okay, uhu-hu-hu-hu. We have been trying to pursue a simple course of action based on human desire to live and it's not that you express you don't want to live or you want to live, that's not what we are discussing here, it is our tendency that we want to live. And we want to be known, we want to be successful, with all that there is a one problem. We want to be loved. That's the subject, which I am touching tonight.

It is not what we want. We all want to be loved. And we want somebody to love you and.... Welcome, welcome, come in. It's not that you want to not be loved. You should be loved. But, on average the average marriage, which happens by love or arrangement is nine years and two months by national record. Divorce rate at this time is forty-two percent and within this one decade, it is 52.7. It's a tragedy of ten percent five increase.

There is a very simple question I am going to raise tonight. Love is in us. That will not go away, the need will not go away, we will love one, love two, love three, love four, love, love, love. And if you look in the dictionary tennis game starts with a love. So love has many meanings. But why we are in love and people say love is blind and why our love turns sour, that's the question today. What happens to us that we love and then we don't love. Same people, nothing changes. Between love and hatred, hatred and love, our life moves around. Qualifying factor is, what is love. I love you, you love me, we love you, they love us. Is that a expression? Yes. If you do not love yourself to the depth of totality, you will never love, love as a reality. And that's the tragedy. If you do not love yourself unto totality of your own self, not of anybody, you will never love the love's reality.

So what is love? A expression. A demonstration. A reach. What it teaches you? Pain.

(Student's laughter)

I am, I am not joking when I say, romance doesn't buy grocery and love doesn't cook it. I am saying some lovers do cook food and some lover do bring lot of romance and grocery, I am not joking, but the reality is there is no depth to it.

This subject, which I am touching today is the nucleus of our life. That's not what we think we are. That's why we imagine not what we are, really that we feel we are. We are the (?) lovers. We love God, not in us, outside. We love our lover, not the soul, but the personality, the facade. You have never fallen in love with the nucleus of the soul of the beloved. If you can find the nucleus soul of the beloved, you can never separate.

It's very amazing. I am going to be sixty-three year old in this August. Anybody I love professionally, socially, religiously, personally, don't misunderstand me, I confront. And everybody who loves me never confronts. Now how can I believe they love me? Love has first quality, you face, you confront. Love has no fear. I am giving you the basic faculties of love. Love confronts. Love is restless to the point of Infinity. When you are in love, there is no stationary. You are not in (?).... When people say, "I am in love, I am in bliss."

I say, "Ha, sure, you have found love."

That's the best lie I have ever heard. Rest and love, they are not together. Can't be. It's not a faculty. Love is extremely restless. The power of longing is so powerful, forget about love, that's a high quality, big range, small range, longing. Basic faculty of love is so powerful that it can bring God and personify, personify which has no personality according to my imagination. I am a human being. I am a creature of God. I was counseling somebody today, things became very tense, and I said, "I don't want to say, what I want to say."

"Why?"

I say, "I am not supposed to say what I want to say."

"Why? You are saying it."

I say, "I am lying."

"No you can't lie to me."

I say, "I have to. I know better. I am not going to tell you that you and you are idiots. No, I am going to say, you and you are lovers. And I know it is a lie, and I am authorized to speak that lie. With your permission."

"But you have said it."

I say, "I didn't say it."

No man of God, shall speak truth straight. He will speak in parable. Otherwise he shall never speak. So this is the truth we speak. I mean, we who profess to be professional one with God, Almighty, bah, bah, bah, look at what we say, "I, I, I don't see it right."

And just make a little nose, move your eyes and you say, "I don't think he is right, but it's okay, it's okay, it's fine, it's fine. I don't see anything wrong, but you know it's a, it's kind of feeling, it's just (?)..."

(Student's laughter)

The other person will say few minutes later,

"You didn't tell me."

"Oh na, na, I told you on that day we were having a cup of tea, I say, I had with (?) of feeling, (?)."

What are you doing? You are saving your skin. All friends do it, all lovers do it, all men of God do it. And nobody loves me because when I catch somebody I catch it first from the neck, right on and I say, "Hey, you've my (?), ha? Stop it."

Now I have been so loud, if I go by this lane, they go that road. Because nobody wants to hear it. They want to hear what they want to hear.

"Oh, we are in love, we are in ecstasy, oh God, you can't believe it."

Now it is a perfect lie of the lovers. Perfect. This is what they imagine. This is what they feel love is. Love is restless, most painful pull, which has nothing equal in the world. There were two lovers, it's called Majnu and Laila. So somebody said to Majnu, "God wants to see you."

He say, "What is the matter?"

He say, "He wants to see you."

"Tell him I don't want to see Him."

He say, "Wait a minute, if God wants to come here and see you?"

He say, "No way."

He say, "You see God here?"

He say, "Neither I am going to go to God, and nor I want God to come here and see me."

He say, "Why, is there anyway that God can have your blessing and want to see you?"

He say, "If He becomes my beloved Laila and takes her shape, her body, and give me that feeling, I'll be fine. Otherwise tell Him 'Live in your heavens, I have nothing to do with you'."

Now that's love.

When you are in love, there is a one thing only. Explain what is that? Come on, you all western most lovers in the world, you talk thirty time word 'Love' and you do not know. When you are in love, what it is?

Student: Blind.

YB: Blind you are, anyway, it's not difficult to find that out. When you are in love, come on. It's not a big test.

Student: (----------)

YB: When you are in love, there is nothing but love and you do not know what love you are in. If any sensitivity, any jurisdiction, any imagination, any territory, any facial form you are in, you are not in love. Love is a personified status of ecstasy one's own self. Love is within oneself. Whatever projectivity, objectivity, and subjectivity we love, that becomes you.

There was a lover, they asked him to get up. He say, "Why?"

"Oh, get up."

He said, "No, I am fine."

They finally choked him up and then he got up. And he then again sleep.

They say, "What is the matter?"

He said, "In love I see my beloved, when I wake up, it's all walls."

Lunatic, lovers and philosopher belong to the same category. If I call somebody, "You are lunatic," he will perhaps punch my face. If I say, "Oh my God, you are a philosopher," he said, "Thank you." Can you believe this planet Earth? What we say and what we mean? Somebody say, loves come from heart. I have been listening to for a long time. The other say love comes from head. I do not know what that means. Some people say love come, love is a matter of previous life. We are born together as in love. And some said, it's a 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. , it has to be practiced here and some say, it's circumstantial, some say it is a smell, some .... Many things people say.

But you know, what really love is? Love is the frequency of psyche of an individual, which entangles with the frequency of the psyche of another person. It creates unseparatable image and it's qualifying. It's not quality, it's not quantity, that is what God is. Totality of God is the love of self. And if you cannot see God in all, you cannot see God at all. If you see this is bad and this is good, you have already divorced fifty percent of you. And if you can deny fifty percent of you, you can deny hundred percent of you. When they say don't judge, that's exactly what they mean, don't judge.

All we are teaching for centuries to each other and all we are practicing for century for each other love, practically does not mean a thing. That's why in this planet, among human, there is so much pain, because there is no love. I do not know what anybody can understand love is. Love is a ultimate, ultimate power. Knows no defeat. Doesn't know impossible. It's a strength, it's not a weakness. There is a tremendous amount of pain in love. That's a realism. But, do the lover feel it? No. There is a joy.

In history, you will find people in love of God tortured in many ways. They smiled, they laughed. Where came their strength? It was their love. I like to let you know how much you love. Let us measure it, by a state balance of frequency. You will know it, you don't have to tell me I'll see it in the arc line anyway.

You know my hand, this? This is my left hand. This is my right hand, just put it here. One up, one low, it's a male and female balance of creativity, it's nothing rough. This has to be above the eyebrow, mind you, there is a angle to it and this has to be below this eyebrow, that's all the precaution. So you just there and just sit there and just close your eyes and look at the tip of your nose and just breathe slowly and love your breath. That's the source of your life. Now don't go to England to see England, you can see it here.

In this balance, you can feel the universe. Steady, no up, no back, no down. What we practice with each other is the experience. You are going to experience in you, your own balance of the breath of life. Breath is a common among all of us. It also is with enemies, it is also with friends. It's a breath. Your breath and my breath is the same breath. Feel it. No, no, no, no, no, no. This is not a swing, this is a curtain. Aha, hey you three. Hello, hey you guys, you can't make a swing of this curtain. Balance it out the power.

Put that tape, if you have it.

We are going to tell you on this breath, the story of the love I wrote in lyrics, we'll play it in music for you. we want you to look at the tip of your nose and we want to keep the balance of your psyche. This is also a powerful exercise to make you young. It's the best gift you can give to your physical body.

Right hand has to be above the eyebrow and the left hand has to be below the eyebrow, that is where the balance is. (Could you correct your neighbor's hand? Hmmu. Good. Now you are fine.)

(The tape, "In every breath of life is......" is played)

YB (talks over tape): ... Steady, steady... Standardize, steady yourself. Work for your sake, not for anybody else... You are going to enter in one minute exactly from now an area of disturbance, because you are now going to have a balanced energy and you will be without balance. Now steadfastly stay with it...... Body will go through the changes in the extreme, it will be like labor pain as you are delivering a baby and in mild, it will be like any kind of itch or disturbance of neck, or this, because body is going to start now adjust itself. You three of you, come here, (?)... Young yankies, sit, do it. All three of you, no mischief.

(The tape ends)

Come on, come on, keep it. It's not, as you have done so long, what is another five exact minutes? It is going to hurt, I know. (?).

(The tape, "In every breath...... is played again).

YB (talks over tape): Take your right hand, don't let it fall. That's your flat (?)... Come on, come on, there is nothing to it. She is doing it, you got to do it. She is doing it fine, don't disturb her, you do it. Five minutes are going to be very difficult folks. Because now by law of nature, structure is going to adjust itself. Wish you best of luck... Sometime you will have it like a pain of a needle, that's what a acupuncture means. Energy block start flowing. Your hand, right hand will not stay up. Third thing you can't do is your neck will be very itchy. And last worst can happen is your hand will start hurting like in hell. That's the best...

Four more minutes. I am looking very eagerly to let you go. Steady, steady, steady... Have stamina, you are doing wonderful. It is the stamina, which will give you success, not schemes. Very good. Two and a half more minute, it's not a big deal. Watch is moving steadily. Up, up, right hand in the posture, don't let the posture slip... Now for the last one-minute, please bless the Mother Earth. Its rain forest, it's polluted green lands. Its oil-spilled ocean, remember... Forty-five seconds only left. Thirty seconds. Try your best. Trust in God, that's the only savior right now. Fifteen seconds. Five seconds, get ready. Inhale deep. Deep, deep, deep, deep, inhale, hold tight.

(The tape ends)

Stretch your both hands up and stretch tight, tight. Tight, tight, let it go. Relax. Hmuhmu. You know, you got to progressively learn one thing from me. You are master of your body, mind and soul. It's a gift of God. If you cannot find your own reality, you will never find anybody's reality. There is no love without reality. Everything else is false. When there is a falseness, then there is no strength, no power, then there are conditions. Where there is a love, there is no question. Where there is a question, there is a business, not love. Love is blind, that's what they say it. It is your power to live in love. Ask no question, Mother Nature will ask you no question. Don't claim you are in love. You will never blame that you are not in love.

Love is a natural phenomena. First love your body, then love your mind, and then love your soul and then love your totality, then love your reality. Five simple things to do. When you start loving your reality, the whole world will love you. My theory is very simple. And I have believed it from one day to this day. I need two hundred million things. And I really need them. How can I get it? Should I go after everything and get it? I'll be the most stupid living human being, or let me sit and let them come to me. I'll receive them. You should be ready to receive. You should be ready to deserve, you should be ready to be. It is your potential. That's what joy is.

Now, you have to do one minute. You have to start doing, you have to open your fingers like this and you have to play ball alternatively and you have to keep your eyes closed. And when the eyes are closed, you have to look in the skull of the upper that hole when you are child there is a... finger has to be open, mind you, and tightly open, you can avoid disease. Just remember this exercise, there is nothing much to do, there are five energies: Mercury; Sun; Saturn; Jupiter; and Id. Just keep your eyes closed and just, just ball them up (?) there is a ball playing. Young kids do it. Fast, fast, nothing slow here. Fast, fast, crazy. Your body will jerk and the whole system, body will adjust, the bones will adjust, the things will adjust. Quick, quick, fast, fast, fast. Just on little bit on the side, some of you doing on the legs then you are psychically affecting it.

Come on kids, do it straight. Fast, I mean fast means fast. Close your eyes. Your number will change otherwise. Come on. When I said fast I mean it. No, no. You have adjusted your bones, your shoulders, your spine, your vertebras, your disc, everything, name it. Move, move, move. If you move really fast what will happen is, you'll start breathing differently. Actually that's what we need. Move, move, move see what it does to you. Get into it. Be lunatic or philosopher or a lover, I don't know what you want to be. But whatever suits you, at this moment move fast and beat and beat and beat, with open a fingers though. Have mercy. You are absolutely right. Very good, keep doing. Don't stop. Keep doing. Wide open uptight fingers.

Don't look at me, look at yourself to close eyes and look through the skull, the center of the skull and just go crazy and just move fast. Now don't you stop, ha. It's just a crazy thing to do, why not do it crazy way? It will clean your (?) of all fear and slackness (?).

Mukhtiar, fast is fast. Ha, that's right. Baani, it's too slow. Little more. Come on, girl. Exert yourself. Mukta, you will do it, I trust you, just you will do it.

Hari 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. , move, move, wide-open fingers, move. Michael, sit straight and move. Fast. It will give you a new kind of breath, which you will not be breathing. It will be a different, but that is breath of life. That's force with you. It will not come if you move slow.

Where is that my real (?)? She is not here. Aha, you can't take rest, move, move, move. You have two minutes only to go. If you don't make that breath two, three, four times between these two minutes, you are wasting your time. Fast, fast, I mean fast, I am asking you to be fast, I want you to act lunatic, crazy, philosopher, lovers whatever it takes, but move God's sake. Get it out. Sick and tired of this inherited anger and mismanagement of the body is no good. Hours of therapy, thousand of dollar wasted, give that to somebody you love.

Out, out, out, out, out, fast, fast, fast. Move, move, move, go crazy for a minute. Just for one minute. Fast, fast, go, go, go, go, go, go. Go. Forty-five seconds go. Try, get out of your body system and energy. Come, come. Move. Move, other thirty seconds move. Get to it, hey you want to be healthy or not? Thirty last seconds you can make it.

Where you go? Fifteen rest. Come on, try even fifteen. Cover your cheating in the past. Ten seconds. Fast, fast. These seconds are very precious. Get ready, inhale and synchronize your body. Tighten it. All the way muscle to muscle, tighten it. Exhale. Inhale again, hold it tight and synchronize, tighten it. Tighten all muscle, let it go, inhale, deep, hold tight, now go. Let it go. Relax folks.

You know, once a while you should do...

(YB's laughter)

You should do this at home, you will be young like ever. We have moved today central nervous system. Three fourths. It's a blessing, it's a human need. It's a requirement. This is your real inner power, which cannot come from a glass of milk and twenty pounds of vitamin C. There is no substitute for this. Your infinite power is in you, once dormant, it will make you useless. Once awakened, it will bring you all useful things. Key to prosperity, is not imagination, not realism, not non-reality, not schemes, games, it is just to be. If you can just be to be, everything will come to you. Because life has two sides to it. Good luck, bad luck. Luck is common. Choice is yours. You want good luck, you want bad luck. Luck is there. You want to be a pauper or a prosperor. It all depends upon you, it's nobody else's problem. If you are bright, beautiful, shiny, stable, steady, contained, content and continuous, there is not a one thing, which you wish or dream of will not come true. Rest is waste of time.

SIDE-B

Now, just to see that you go home safely and then you can come next time, please sit in baby pose. So that I can totally be assured that your stomach is yours, not stolen. Get baby, be babies, babies, babies, babies, babies, babies sleep that way, remember? When you are baby, now you are fat, with big belly, you can't do it, muscles are not yours, but still in life, it is a must. When you touch your forehead with the Mother Earth, you get the power from it.

Put some sleepy tape, they can really sleep. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty sleep.

(The tape of flute music is played)

YB (talks over tape): ...... If you keep on doing it, we'll leave you here..... Very slowly, start rising up. Very slowly, extremely slowly. Slowly.... We are not going to miss the train, slowly come up. Okay. Now let us pray.

(The tape stops)

Look towards the sky, eyes are looking at the heavens, straight, arms have to be straight. Straight, straight, angle, watch my angle. It's very important. Angle is very important. Shoulders will be stretching out all the way out and let's pray. And now close your eyes and keep praying. Say what you want. Don't bother whether it comes or not, you will be surprised how fast it comes. Ask, you will be fulfilled. Pray, pray.

Open your heart, you will be fulfilled. Trust in your prayer, it shall be answered. Dwell in God, it will be all happiness and bliss.

May the long time sunshine upon ......

(The class sings, "May the long time sunshine.......")

(Song stops)

YB: Thank you very much, I wish and pray you should change everyday like this. So, when we are going to meet next?

Student: Next Tuesday (?) night (?)...

YB: Yeah, next Thursday we do not have the center with us for pre-booking. We didn't book it that way. So to compensate for that you better come Tuesday, we want to continue this series, but this is not our fault. And you come to Espanola and we'll work out there. And then again, next Thursday we'll be having here.

Isn't a fun to teach classes here, Espanola, Santa Fe, Albuquerque? Uhh. That's, this is the very good way to retire, isn't it?

(YB's laughter)

It's amazing. I have my personal friend here in the class today from Hamburg, Germany. Come on. Now, go up, stand up. Aha, when I go to Germany, she totally take care of me in German way. You know, everything exact, on the time, spot. Now let us see what we do her here. It's amazing how much people in Europe are now intensifying to learn KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. Kundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit. It is used by the householder, busy in the world, to create immediate clarity. The fourth Guru in the Sikh tradition, Guru Ram Das, was acknowledged as the greatest Raaj Yogi. (See Raaj Yogi.) He opened this long secret tradition to all.

He opened this long secret tradition to all. , because they have found out how cheap it is to restore their own energy against everything else. It's surprising. It's surprising our people in Moscow, in spite of the fact the apartment could only hold thirty people, were teaching forty, fifty people a class a day. They were there on a business tour, they end up teaching left and right.

Times are changing. This is the Age of Aquarius. I am for myself within myself, for all the totality and reality, dignity and Divinity to expel myself into another so I should shine as a star in the light of God, which I am. See how easy it is for me to say it? Repeat it. Hey-hey-hey.

(Student's laughter)

Piscean Age was bless me O Lord, with Thy grace, I should bent to somewhere, where I can get to Thee, take me people where the knowledge is, I want to acquire it, so that when I achieve my end, I have my this life journey. Umhu. Now it is not.

It is in the beginning you, in the middle you, in the end you. It's only everything is in you. What satisfaction you cannot get from you, you cannot get from anybody. It is amazing we who have lived in Piscean Age, are, are entering Aquarius Age, how different we will feel. It will be a fun.

Thank you very much, goodnight. Next Tuesday, please come to the Temple and we'll have a good time class. If I am allowed to live up to that. And also remember in the Age of Aquarius, life is two seconds. One breath in, and one breath out. If doesn't come in, I'll get stuck, adios, amigo.

Where there is a ego, there is no amigo.

(Student's laughter)

So let's love each other for every breath of life. Let us love each other for every beat of heart. Let us thank Lord being us for a moment. You have to come to the sophistication of shuniyaShuniyaa , Shuniya A state of the mind and consciousness where the ego is brought to zero or complete stillness. There a power exists. It is the fundamental power of a Kundalini Yoga teacher. When you become shuniaa then the One will carry you. You do not grasp or act. With folded hands you "are not." It is then that Nature acts for you. point. It's not that you have to wait thirty, forty years. It's not true anymore. Happiness for everything. Each step you walk and you didn't break your toe, be happy. Everything accomplished, you should be grateful.

Goodnight, now, go home and have fun.

Student: (-----------)

YB: Oh, Your Excellency, you are supposed to do exercises.

Student: (----------)

YB: Where is she now? Home? (?). Oh yeah, yes, I (?).
