... You put it all together?

Student: (----)

YB: Yeah, I know. This is a issue in my hand of a man who came fifteen years old and left his body, how old he was then?

Student: (----)

YB: Twenty-one became a psychic, Saint perfect, more than a man can imagine, more than a man can lie, more than a man can explain, more than I can tell why such man exists, I don't know anything about it. But one thing I knew is if he would have given to live he would have been ten times practically better and plus more. That I can definitely say. I don't think he ever will die; people live by memories, what a man! What a body! I remember when he left his body, I said not to people but to God, I said, "You plucked the best flower out of my garden, you will pay for it!"

Oh yeah that was my way of protesting. In the history of any religion nobody in five years becomes head of the spiritual throne that fast. That was his grace, he worked for it, he earned it and he enjoyed it. So it is one of his memorial issue if you want to know about the man you might have forgotten, this young Jewish born, fifteen year old, became BhaiBhai Brother. Bhai Sahib , Bhai Sahiba An honorary title which means respected brother (or sister). SahibBhai Sahib , Bhai Sahiba An honorary title which means respected brother (or sister). of Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. DharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. . History will never forget him, people may. That's all matters. When I taught you that day I was trying to make you understand something, which you are denying as a nation, as people, as Americans, and you are not denying because you want to deny it because you are in majority and I am a single person in minority, I am asking you why you are in pain? Why you are poor? Why you are suffering? Why you are unhappy? Why you are handicapped? Why you are self-destructive? And so and so forth.

You are telling me that is normal, I am telling you it is not normal. And that is twenty years have passed. In this twenty years I was very busy, I was teaching anybody I could reach, I go everywhere, I tolerated everybody who lied to me, who spoke me the truth, who helped me, who cursed me, who told me I am a monkey, who told me I am a God, I never listened, never saw, nor said, I just worked. Then all of a sudden in nineteen eighty-four Golden Temple got attacked, my heart got clogged up, so I had to sit, not teach, rest, nobody was sure about me till I became sure about myself. I said to myself, leaving all that stuff, which I know not sharing it will be a bad idea. So I thought I owe it to you. These twenty years is not a very happy life personally, but in experience it is wonderful.

I saw when I was in a third country called India, I was an officer, I used to meet all people of all the world in one spot called airport. You know airport is one thing, where all nationalities come. And fortunately Delhi is an airport, which is a night airport. Everything comes at night there, during the day hardly there plane lands, whole day it's just vacant. Once a while some chartered or something like that but at night it's a very funny night, seven to nine is France One, France Two, Air France One, Air France Two, so it becomes French and then it becomes German Lufthansa One, Lufthansa Two, then Panam One, Panam Two, then KLM this, then that's a guy with that which comes from New Zealand what they call that air?

Students: (-----)

YB: Qantas One, Qantas Two, something like that. So like hour by hour the world changes. You meet people, you meet happy people, you meet good people, bad people, beautiful people, black people, young, white people, totally dead white, reasonable and all that stuff. You develop a study, but in my heart I knew there is something wrong with all these people. When nature called me to come here, I came here I landed in Los Angeles, I still cannot make it to the airport even today after twenty years, if I have to go I can't give the directions. I don't know where airport is. This airport, which I have almost in and out everyday.

Realizing I am very poor in my Earth dimensional, something, which I compensate in heavenly dimensions, so I am very mental in the sense, and my project is to tell people from last twenty years that you are not supposed to be unhappy. And on the other hand when I pretend to be unhappy they say you should not be unhappy, well, if I should not be unhappy you should not be unhappy. Why we are unhappy? Does anybody know? One word is insecure. If you are insecure, get secure. There is a reason that we are unhappy, do you all know? Anybody knows?

Student: (----)

YB: Forget God business! God is too much on us, God we... if there is something good, God gives us, if something bad God is to be blamed for... leave the guy alone, He is everywhere. God is not for all this. We who are created in the image of God are unhappy. I am asking a question, I want a answer. Yep?

Student: (----)

YB: As far as truth is concerned it is impossible to live so don't worry if you are not living the truth, it's okay. Truth, first to find truth takes a intuitive mind, lot of years of meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. . To find truth is not everybody's job. People pretend to find truth, that's okay.

Student: (----)

YB: We are unhappy because we want the happiness of it, we don't want the other side of it, what is the other side of it? Unhappy side?

Student: (----)

YB: Here you go; there are some people who love to be unhappy. Yes?

Student: (----)

YB: We have a expectation imaginary, personal, physical, need, environmental, circumstantial and when they are not met, we are unhappy. How can you say that?

(Students laugh)

That's not true. And you don't meet with (?) you try again. That's not... you answered very well but I found out the real thing... expectations are true when they have not met you are unhappy but momentarily. Memento, and that's not what makes you unhappy. Anybody else?

Student: (----)

YB: Oh we do not know ourself; to be satisfied with ourself is a very long question. Forget about it, nobody knows who they are. Forget it! They just, you know what a few men are? Men are like Rolls-Royce, and somebody put in a engine of some toy car, which was junked. It's not... or let me put you in one other way. Just imagine that a body of a angel is being run by a earthworm in it. You understand the proportion I am giving you? I tell you there is only one reason why we are unhappy. Yeah?

Student: (----)

YB: Yeah, we do not know, no, no, no happiness, unhappiness, we know. That I am not willing to be. When you are unhappy you do make lot of yelling, screaming, crying, or you... tight and all that. There is a one thing you cannot lie when you are happy or unhappy because your eye will tell whether you are happy or unhappy, your face may not. You can pretend, but your eyes won't. When you are happy your eyes are bright and shining and when you are unhappy they are not. That is a body language on which you don't have a control. Because when I used to catch a criminal and interrogate him I never bothered what he is saying. I'll say when his eye bright up, it means when he is lying and he is taking me that I am accepting it.

You know what I mean? So I make that note that this is what he is lying and when he will be very sad and very unhappy that's what he is telling the truth. You understand the reverse psychology in criminology? Then you know work lot many years, dealt with lot of thousands of people from west, east, I didn't become a 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. that I satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. with a looking at one rice dropping in my mouth in a cave for twenty-five years and all that, forget it. I became everything out of everything. I know there is only one thing, which makes us unhappy. Come on. None of you can tell, all right, I'll take you to dinner who tells me the correct answer. Personally I'll pay for it right with my own earned money.

(Students laugh)

Student: (----)

YB: God, this soul business is so terrible! God, soul and all that leave it alone. Yes dear. We have?

Student: (----)

YB: We humans don't decide. Do you know that? Whenever we say decide, it's a temporary stop. We don't decide. Man has no capacity to decide. Is there any man who can decide things? You are just victim of circumstances and emotions, how can you decide? No, doesn't work. But you gave a good answer; you have a good idea, lecture it on next day.

(Students laugh)

Haa?

Student: (----)

YB: We never know where our nose is, what we remember who we are, who cares? Yep?

Student: (----)

YB: Attitude of gratitude and that... you have a teacher called 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. Bhajan, he said so you heard it, it's good, yeah?

(Students laugh)

Student: (----)

YB: We live by emotion, that's natural. We eat and emotions and like ocean have waves and it cannot go away. To be stupid you can't help it, to be deprived, not help it, you can be idiot it can't be helped, you lie you can't help it. Everybody does it and all negative and positive are fifty-fifty, then you're a balanced human being, it is absolutely there is nothing wrong. If you cheat everybody does it. If you lie you do it. These are the things you will continue to do it, simply you don't want to be caught, period. Wrong and right I am not discussing but there is a one thing, which makes you unhappy. And the same thing can make you happy is there anything anybody knows? Yeah?

Student: (----)

YB: Honey, love is a very imaginative philosophical situation, love is the longing, love is basically a longing of our growth, you know what love actually is? Actually love is when you can give like God and not even wink an eye about it, who can do that? So, so long love is a longing it's all right, that's a good game, yep?

Student: (----)

YB: God, it's going to be philosophical and classical and scientific class, yeah, doctor come on.

Student: (----)

YB: Oh if you have commitment, then what? You are going to move a Himalaya?

(Students laugh)

Student: (----)

YB: Well, we are getting weird.

(Students laugh)

Is there something you can tell me is worthwhile I am willing to listen or I should now stop lecturing? Come on!

Student: (----)

YB: Oh gratitude for what? Yeah?

Student: (----)

YB: No, pain we cause, so what we cause whether we like it or... oh by the way nobody is in pain until they cause it unconsciously or consciously or subconsciously, pain is not a part of your life, pain comes to you by your cause, you are the effect of it. So that is a different subject we will worry on that different... yes you?

Student: (----)

YB: Oh God, well, it's a religious class, I wanted to run it like UCLA, no, no, no, listen, no, no, no, now I am not asking. We are unhappy because we do not trust ourself at a time. Trust and time both starts with T, you know? Trust and time, whenever there is a time and you don't have a trust and whenever trust is needed you don't have a time you are unhappy. Think about it. You are only happy when you are in state of trust. Let me put it in a psychological language. When the mental theme and psyche of the human livelihood is in totally time control and gives the benefit of trust, man is happy. It means your logic, your reason, your emotions, your feelings, your commotions, your desires, your imaginations, your dreams, day dreams, night dreams, all put together have already answered you who you are. Got it? You look very serious.

Now what I am saying is that normal requirement to be human, otherwise you are still animal in the body of a human. And it's true what I say today. Whether you are a 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. or a millionaire or President of United States or President of the whole World or you rule six planets on the space, you cannot be happy if all your potential projections and your projection, which are real are answered by your own intuition. So you have to have this computer here, he should chipmunk the whole thing... your answer is correct. That's how it should work. You know how the brain works? Does its own thing and... but when it takes time it stretches the time, stretches the time, you are in time.

Time doesn't like it and you don't want to be left behind, you understand the problem where the pain is? Where the unhappiness is? You think too long because you have become rather a intuitive human, to be a thinking monster. Did I say something wrong? Don't you understand where wrong is? You have become a thinking monster. Nanak said, one word Nanak said very beautiful, 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. , beautiful word, what a psychologist he was!

"Sochai Soch Naa Hov-A-Ee Jay Sochee LakhLakh 100,000. Vaar."

Your thinking, thinking, ridiculous thinking will not think but only ridicule you in the end and the beginning of the time and before the time and in the space. You think, you think, you think, thinking is a good thing. Therefore you think and by thinking, thinking, thinking, thinking, you become a thinking monster. You don't understand. Have you ever heard before this day word "Thinking monster?" No, you didn't, see you are American, you are update, you can go on the Moon, you can land on the Moon but you cannot hear a good English word. It's a English. There is no human being as a human, as a man and a woman, they are forced by a institution of two people called parents and they are forced in the west to think too much, they are asked to think in the orient also too much and at the present the world is ruled by thinking monsters.

There are no humans left therefore people are not innocent, people cannot keep their word, they cannot keep their promise, they cannot deliver things, they cannot love you, they cannot like you because what you are seeing is a human. Full fledged human with eyes, with ears, with nose, surgically done or otherwise whatever the case is but inside that human is a thinking monster who is just super idiot because it thinks what should be thought and it thinks what should not be thought, it thinks when one should not think, it thinks when one cannot think, it thinks at night, it thinks in sleep, it thinks in its working, act of mind, which overtook the human by a thinking process, the most delicate insanity man created thinking.

Now the Shashara, this brain, is in the gray matter (?) is called brain, it has the capacity through the intellect to release thinking waves like Sun has those flares. So intellect gives thousand flare of thoughts per wink of eye, plus we think, plus I think, plus other think on my psyche, plus my psyche thinks on other psyche. You know what that makes it? That makes it hotchpotch-gotch-potch-gotch-notch... (?) who is who? All the energy, which is supposed to be rationalized, used, contained, bring you prosperity, fulfillment, happiness, ecstasy, Divinity, grace, whatever you want the best thing in the world is consumed by super over thinking.

When I say intellects are not intelligent I am not against them. I am just explaining a foolish mental rigmarole. You people got it? You think love, love in experience, love is a direction, love is a force, love is a psyche, love is a connection, love is a rhythm, love is a harmony, love is this, love is that, love is love is love is Los Angeles time is explaining from last twenty years what love is. Love is when rain comes you give an umbrella, love is when you ask somebody at midnight for a pizza, love is this; love is that, they are explaining love. Even you think what love is, you think.

A person thinks whether he is... I saw a young man, a friend of mine, young man I am old because in age, not but in wisdom, but this guy is my age. We are all I think couple months either I am older or he is older. One day he was tying his turban, I went to visit him, he was my guest and before that mirror he was tying his turban and he was talking to the mirror. I got very interested, I started listening to it and he was thinking, he was thinking, 'well when Yogiji comes, he is my friend, should I respect him, should I friend him, should I hug him, should I bow to him' and he was talking, I was standing behind him and I was listening the whole thing and he tied his turban, it was complete, he covered his head, he listened to it, he understood it and still thinking what's going on and he was still talking. Finally he said, "I have heard everything, you don't have to do anything, just turn around and that will be fine, let's go, we are getting late."

He said, "You are here, did you listen to the whole thing?"

I said, "No, I didn't listen to anything. What you were talking about?"

"Well, you must have listened."

I said, "I did listen to what how you should see me and say to me what."

I said, "It's a one minute thing, say anything you want, shake hand, don't shake hand, touch my feet, hit my head do something but this twenty minutes standing before this mirror what were you doing?"

He said, "But that's something private I want to talk to you."

And I said, "What is it?"

He said, "That's the complaint of my wife also that I talk in sleep and talk too much, actually you know I am businessman, now sometime I talk in office and you know one thing what I have done? I called you."

I said, "Yeah."

He said, "Now I have hired a secretary when she starts talking she lets everybody get out and sometime it takes two to three hours."

This guy thinks, whatever he thinks he talks. You meet some people. He said, "What are you saying?"

"No, I am talking to myself."

You know have you met them? You must have. What is happening to this mankind? Where we are going? You know I won't tell you something but I will give you the abstract of it. I know a guy he has a wall half of this room and it has all the degrees, hardly there is any subject where he has not done master of PhD, hardly there is anything, which he has not graduated, hardly there is any not appreciated possible, he could buy or get it he has not got it, you know those crazy guys who want to fill their wall with, to impress people that they are the wisest fool on the Earth. He is one of those kinds. You know what I am saying? And still he is a mess. One day standing before the wall you know what he told me? He said, "What is your opinion about it? What do you think of this?"

I said, "I think it is very good. Some people made the wood, some people made the plaque, some people printed it, it's a good business, out of your money they got share of it, I think that's all I think about it. It's a economical goodwill gesture."

He said, "But, do you think it's impressive?"

"I think you are the biggest idiot on this planet," when you show that much a man like me will say my God, it's a crazy subject let's go by. Even one degree, which I wanted to read I won't. I said, "It nauseates. It's totally obnoxious, it's making a mockery of yourself and as well as anybody you know. What a stupid thing to show!"

Everything in the world I say who has the time you know how many hours it will take? Are you making, depicting a piece of art, is it piece of art? Show something, which is loved by others, don't show something, which is loved by you. Live to the expectations of other's love, not to yours. That's why we are unhappy. Our expectations become the guiding star of our life, forget it, when your expectation becomes primary expectations, you are worst than an animal, which has died yesterday. You are not to be human and by no standard when your expectation becomes somebody's expectation it becomes something and when you deliver it, it becomes real.

If thinking has any process in life as a service, then you must think what others think for themself and how you can help to materialize their thinking. Bring their dreams to reality without hurting yourself. That's the process of life, that's the project of life, that will give you eternal happiness forever when others become happy because of you. When you become happy of others you have lost the game of life. Are you with me? Do you like what I said? No. Your auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. changed in one minute.

(Students laugh)

Guilt came through! I didn't want to make you feel guilty, I just said you know simple thing. Oh we had an exercise, aah we are going to do this KriyaKriya Literal meaning is "completed action." A Kundalini Yoga Kriya is a sequence of postures and yoga techniques used to produce a particular impact on the psyche, body, or self. The structure of each kriya has been designed to generate, organize, and deliver a particular state or change of state, thereby completing a cycle of effect. These effects have been codified and elaborated by Yogi Bhajan and form the basic tools used in yoga and its therapeutic applications. ; just to bring our mind... you didn't want to lose the dinner tonight? I'll take you... okay, okay, unfortunately I can read things. Dinner, dinner, dinner, okay we will take you to dinner. She said I didn't give you... now she is thinking why not give another answer and then (?) dinner... I got him by the neck, he is just getting out of it see how auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. talks, it's just a talking process and the whole language. Dinner, (?) on good, thank you.

(Students laugh)

This process is closing the gate and opening the gate 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. and making the ego to jump, dance, hurt it. Hurt it! This is the antenna of your ego, hurt it. Simple you know that. Just like that, keep going, slowly, don't worry just create a rhythm though rhythm like this. It will hurt, I am not saying it won't, then bring it down and be parallel to the ground straight, elbows stretched, hands, please do it nicely. Gurdarshan what about your elbows? They can't be stretched? That's what happened to Midwest? People who live in Midwest they can't... what they twist their elbows too much? Specially ladies, I never knew that before oh okay. You mean these cowboys do it? Come on. Hey you know what I am saying? I am saying elbows straight, I am going to take rest, you got to do this exercise. I don't have a problem. I do it anyway. Come on. You know what we will do? It will take the motor part of the brain to link, to link with your neutral mindNeutral Mind The most refined and often the least developed of the three Functional Minds. It judges and assesses. It witnesses and gives you clarity. It holds the power of intuition and the ability to see your purpose and destiny. It is the gateway for awareness. .

The patterns of the neuron, all these classes I am going to teach is for your good not for my good. But I want to let you understand and put them on record so that you can always know in your life when you are in shape A and you want to shape up and this is how you do it. Now do this. That Id, Id, Id, move it. Just like, see how good I do. Don't I do it? I am very good, I have years of doing it, I know it works and then close it very slowly, just close it, close it, close it. It hurts I know that it hurts here, it hurts here, it hurts there, who cares? Let it hurt. Ignore it. Keep on moving though. Well, if you not make my all Kirpans perfect, I am going to teach you how to give you strength in hands. You will feel very good when you are done with it. At present it's like a surgery. It's a bad thing to do, I agree. When the first day I did it, when I was a student, I said, "Oh God! I should have gone and done some service!"

(Students laugh)

You might be thinking I should have been somewhere else I should have been swimming, what I am doing in this class, what he is doing this thing. But this is what you do. This is what... this is a very focal point of your mental neuron ingrown pattern, which tells you and which disconnects the motor and the message system. Don't misunderstand the pattern in the brain of the message strength, sometime are not right. And that is what SadhanaSadhana , Saadhana A spiritual discipline; the early morning practice of yoga, meditation, and other spiritual exercises. The Aquarian Sadhana can be an individual or group practice; Ideally, it includes the recitation of Japji Sahib, a Kundalini Yoga kriya, and chanting the Aquarian Sadhana meditations, immediately followed by Gurdwara. According to Yogi Bhajan, the potency of any Kundalini Yoga and meditation practice will be enhanced in a group setting. does, SadhanaSadhana , Saadhana A spiritual discipline; the early morning practice of yoga, meditation, and other spiritual exercises.

Yeah, nobody wants to fail, the people who fail, people are unhappy, people poor, people are bag lady, bag man, this and that, that you understand there is a zigzag and things don't connect in the head. I don't want to see you tomorrow, oh that is 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. Bhajan's student, you know what I mean?

Look at the cycle, look at this, look at this dumbbell, he studied with a great master, forget it! What great master, you want to make me naked like a raw and put me out in the street, I don't want that. I want you to understand that's why I am giving you the most sacred and secret things in the book of Yoga because I think it's last mile of my life and I owe this to you. Oh you can cheat I don't mind. Soram, you are doing very well, keep on doing that way don't worry about it, at least she will learn from you. Come on you guys. Work it out! Does it really hurt?

Students: (-----)

YB: That means something inside is happening.

(Students laugh)

I didn't make up my love, I am just telling you something inside is happening; you are hurting, it means rearrangement of the furniture in the living room is happening and this is the living room. Heart is the kitchen, energy center. Warm and cold comes from here but this is the living room. And sometime we rearrange the furniture to seat better guests. Come on, move, move, move. Did we pay ten dollars for this little thing? Terribly bad, terribly bad. No good, terribly bad. But anywhere else you won't even move your thumb for once. I know who you are. Come on and there is another exercise, which you will never like, the second one is worst. All right, all right, just relax. Now you know sometime you get irritated and impatient? You do? You do and you don't want to. And you end up messing up the whole thing and you don't know why? It means your brakes have failed?

All right. Split both side's fingers almost this, this and these two. From Saturn finger as straight and bringing together and split them, bring it together and split them, it's easy. These two, these two and these two and this one, right? See this? Just see this and then see this? It will like to be either lean this way or lean that way. If it leans this way you are egomaniac and you get angry on provocation. If it leans this way when you have inferior complex you create anger when you see somebody inferior or you fear something inferior about you. So either it will go this way or it will go that way, it will not like to split but force it. It always have that reaction, don't worry about it. That is not you are abnormal. See this, yeah come on do it. Yeah, split it. Split those two sides and keep the center, center and let it go automatically one way or the other. It will hurt but it is really a lobotomy. Aha, it's a yogic lobotomy; it's priceless if you can do it. Aah those two fingers together. Yeah, those others.

I know you are very compassionate and fatherly, don't let it go that way, once, twice, then you know where the wrong is. Keep it in the center. First you will see which way it goes, then try to put it in the center, it hurts a lot. Your own finger disobeys you. Yeah, if your children do why you are so upset. Thumb and second, third finger stand alone, third... Okay. All right, you know your all problems as a male and a female, hey listen to my statement, your problem as a male and a female, your problem towards a male and a female, your problem of being a male and female can be totally done if you exercise this. It will bring in you the equilibrium otherwise you have to go through the cycle of all kind of things for Infinity. Come on split them and put them together and split again and put it together, split again, and put it together and you put your tongue down and breathe with it. Yeah. Inhale through mouth and exhale through mouth, tongue out.

Hey you are forgetting to breathe or to split the fingers, put them together. It's one body; there is one head, that's why there is one head not two. There are two butts and one head. What's going on with you? Breathe also and split the same way you were doing. Get rid of this duality of personality. How long you will suffer as a human, haa? Come on work it out. Come on do it right. Keep on doing, don't worry about it. It is very effective. If you do three-four-five-ten-twenty times perfect it will affect, that's what we need. Yeah. Come on, come on, be nice to yourself. All right, relax. You guys are going crazy for nothing. Oh listen, you must understand the body and mind and soul has a relationship. The problem is not that you can become over spiritual and very holy or problem is not you can become a psychopath and insane and neither you can be a beast and neither you can be angel.

Moment you are balanced, moment you are in balance in the brain, the balance of the brain in energy output and the activity to confront becomes balanced you are the best beloved of God. Nothing else works. And you cannot buy balance by money, by power, by richness, by poverty, by denying things, by accepting things, by being in pain all the time and being happy all the time, it doesn't work. You do not understand one thing, life is activity. There is no such thing as inactive life that means death. life is a activity, wanted, unwanted, done, undone, maybe, may not be, should I, should not, can we, can we not, it is a activity automatic, you must understand your heart beats automatic, your diaphragm beats automatic, your fourth (?) sends creative signal automatic. Your breath of life comes in and out automatic, even when you have open eyes and I do this, your eyes go closed voluntarily, involuntarily, the whole thing is a well set system. It's a active system. It only can be made inactive when the battery is taken out of it, that's called soul. Are you with me? Whether you like to be, somebody told me once...

Side B

Not voluntarily used. "I don't understand Yogiji. Don't the YogisYogi 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. have to respect for it?"

I said, "I do. I respect, one part of the body you have not voluntarily used and involuntarily you may get more wet dreams than any man who is married."

Mental sexual activity never stops. And it doesn't stop. That's why Playboy sells more than any newspaper. Man is erotic, neurotic, real, sincere, dear and absolutely beast, animal, destructive. He is cannibal; if he cannot eat the flesh of another person he will eat the grace of another person. That's a cannibalism, mental cannibal. Man is a spiritual cannibal when he exploits others and does not resurrect them but keep them as students, slave students. There are lots of cannibals. Lot of way when we eat each other. We don't talk about it but let's be real. When we use, abuse friends and facilities, we do not give more and take more, when we demand and we cannot deserve and we too much desire, there are lot of things we do in life, which is not realistic, we all know it. We are not discussing it today.

We are just telling you why it all happens. You know why? Because you are not working enough for the balance of your own brain. You exercise, I go to the club, exercise, everybody is exercising. Somebody walks like that, somebody walks like that, somebody wears three suits, I mean it's a funny thing. Fashion in a exercise club, three, four different colors, this and that. They never leave that nonsense at home. They brought it into the club. In our club nobody says hello to anybody. It's a bunch of super egomaniacs who is trying to be healthy and they have no way to understand healthy brain is also a part of body. And brain has its own neurons. And neurons' life is not controlled by the pump of the heart and the breath of life, it's controlled by the radioactivity electronic magnetic waves, which are created by self existence a by little thing called that little stone in the brain what they call it?

Students: (-----)

YB: Pineal, that peanut in the whole universe is the crux of whole life. All right let us do it. Watch this, this activity, you will love it. Just do it like this. Like insane people do, just totally act insane. Make a face. Make a insane demonstrative face and...

(Students laugh)

Each time make a insane pattern, decide it in your mind, in your brain, it will work so fast you can't believe it. Well, I am not taking a picture that you should be worried about it, just go ahead. But it will offload lot of insanity. Each time when you do this with one hand and the other the pattern should be almost... facial insanity should be expressed. Do it anyway you want. It's okay. You are just doing better come on do it yourself.

(Students laugh)

Make any way you want it and make it the worst way, let that insanity be out, please understand you can go for primal therapy and yell and scream and cry, pay two hundred and fifty bucks, you go for other therapies you pay two hundred and fifty dollars an hour, here were are charging ten bucks giving you three hundred dollars worth of free package, you don't want to accept it? Hey come on get rid of this insane mental pattern, come on. It's okay, I am looking at it. You know I am... don't try to be moderate that you don't have that insanity in you, come on do in any way you want. Get rid of this, act, act mentally lunatic, point out at others and act lunatic. Come on.

(Students laugh)

She is perfect. You want to see the best of it? Come on here.

(Students laugh)

Watch this, this is I mean she can get rid of it so fast, that's why she is still here with us. Stand up, look at this, just... so that they may know what actually how to do it so that they... yeah, come on. Come on. Oh crazy call center for fourteen dollars ninety-nine cents. Match up, match up.

(Students clap)

Match up! Match up! Is that encouraging, match up! Get rid of this. My idea is to ask her, she is showing a good way, come on get rid of it, it's all in you. You want to keep it for tomorrow; you can't get rid of it. Come on. Give yourself a chance to release this nonsense which we are holding inside in the subconscious, let consciously get rid of it, that's what we are doing, come on do it. Big deal! Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up, later on we meditate we become yogisYogi 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. , that's fine. Let us clean it out. Each time make a conscious face of a loony. Otherwise it won't work. When you point out that is the projection, it's a physical projection and make a very lunatic face, each time different with each hand. Hey I can bet with you tomorrow you will have a very nice day if you do it all. You guys have to come out. Hey, come on. All right, all right, that's okay. Now I am just explaining to you certain exercises, which you think physical and unwanted and all that, and you think you are all right, you are never all right.

A working car does not mean its oil is not getting bad. Working car does not mean it is not getting carbonated. Working perfect car does not mean that it cannot develop for tomorrow's problem. When you are alive and you have wealth that does not mean tomorrow things won't go wrong. But if you have joined a 3HO Yoga Center, then things must go right. How they can go right? Because you must have an outlet in a Yoga Class. You must have a property balance, you must have a tune up class, you must have something.

"Karmee Aavai Kaprhaa Nadree Mokh Du-Aar."

That should come true. Shield means you should be protected, you should be covered, you should be there, you understand what I am saying? You understand? You do not need no protection, you need protection. What is a protection you need as a human being? You need a protection that your presence should work. Not that your philosophy should work, not that your communication should work, not that your impression should work, not that your surrounding should work, not that your status should work, not that your knowledge or projection should work, no. Personality, your identity should work. They say that gate is not that great on which all heads do not bow and that head is no head, which bows at every gate.

"Woh Sirr Nahi Jo Har Darr Pey Jhuk Jaai, Woh Darr Nahi Jiss Pey Har Sirr Na Jhukey."

Those simple couplets tells you the entire philosophy of life. All right now let us go into our rhythm. It is a angle tendency, watch this, watch my hands. See, my power of the hands? I am now enriching it. I am energizing it, I am analyzing it, I am energizing it, I am making it strong, I am making it a healer's hand, I am bringing the energy into it, I am bringing towards me like this. It's just like exercise tight and tough, I will bring it to my face, I have become a healer, I am becoming a healer, I am becoming a healer, I am healing myself, I am healing myself through my fingers, through my hands, my movement, my psyche, you can feel it in the skin of your face without touching it. Just do it. Just towards you sweet, just towards you, heal yourself and now close your eyes and feel them as the energy from your hands is released to you to heal. It's very soothing exercise from the brain, very soothing. Don't touch it. Just bring the energy towards your head.

You know why we wrap our head? We keep it together. We wrap it up. You think we are crazy, we have cotton factory, we want to put it on our head? Not at all. Nobody understands why we tie this YarmulkaYarmulka Skullcap worn by members of the Jewish faith. , turban or whatever you want to call it. People do not wear a turban because of inconvenience they think they can put a hat on and off, that will be easy, they are into easy game. Life is not so easy. Life has a system very sophisticated, extremely flawlessly complicated if disturbed. Towards you, towards you, bring me towards you; bring me, health, life, light, light has two things. Life has two things, enlightened and heat. That's what Sun gives you. Towards you, tough hands, fingers tough, then they will release the energy. Tension releases the energy towards you.

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. , put together three of them and jump them, that's all I am saying.

Meditate on conscious breath. Breathe consciously. Inhale deep.

(Tape stops)

Deep, this one tape has the power to subconsciously put it at night, listen to it or not, sleep through it, to cleanse your subconscious of the fears of death and other unwanted things. Exhale. Identity is they call them, unwanted undesirable identities, which come through thought, through subconscious, manifests as to be real, inhale. When I say you breathe, when I talk I talk, and in rational attitude we gather them through thought form and stick them in subconscious. Let it go. Let it go totally. Straight out!
