... Okay, how did it go?

Student: (----)

YB: How did it go? Did you chanted it for a while? You almost chanted it for about... how did it go?

Students: Good.

YB: How can it be wonderful? You are not spaced out. Normally if you do thirty-one minutes nothing is left of you.

Students: (----)

YB: What?

Students: (----)

YB: Yeah.

(Students' laughter)

It is like you inhale deep, you come to the udhyan bandh, it means you come to the diaphragm, that's what ultimately is going to help you. You deeply come in, there are twenty sounds actually. But if you count there are nineteen, Sa Ta Na Ma is five. Sa aa ta aa na ma, that's five, that's a secret, in all mantrasMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind. Mantra is a wave, a repetition of sound and rhythm that directs or controls the mind. When you recite a mantra you have impact through the meridian points in the mouth, through its meaning, through its pattern of energy, through its rhythm, and through its naad - energetic shape in time. Recited correctly a mantra will activate areas of the nervous system and brain and allow you to shift your state and the perceptual vision or energetic ability associated with it. there is a secret. Like Ajoonee saibhung. If you say Ajoonee saibhung, it is correct, if you say ajuni saibhung, it is wrong. You must understand in Sikh religion, Sikh religion, we call it religion because there is no other way out. You know what I mean? What should we call ourself? Idiots? Or superhuman beings? That doesn't work. So we have to call us a religion. But the fact is, it is a permutation and combination of the sound system between the tongue and the upper palate and it is the hypothalamus, which we stimulate and we know the art of it. That's all it is. It's a one little thing.

So these are nineteen words on surface, there are twenty words in reality. Sa Ta Na Ma, it's five words. Sa aa ta aa na, aa is silent, it's a connected sound. So you chant like this, I'll not be in a position to do it correctly, I just ate and I am on the time bar, so normally when I come to teach class on the sound and words and mantrasMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind. Mantra is a wave, a repetition of sound and rhythm that directs or controls the mind. When you recite a mantra you have impact through the meridian points in the mouth, through its meaning, through its pattern of energy, through its rhythm, and through its naad - energetic shape in time. Recited correctly a mantra will activate areas of the nervous system and brain and allow you to shift your state and the perceptual vision or energetic ability associated with it. , I go back and eat but my medical doctor says I can't do it, so I am in trouble. However, it's like this. I'll go on a very low tone and let you know, which you can't do, which is not right either. But just for your example. Saa Ree Gaa Maa Paa Dhaa Nee Sa Ta Na Ma Rama daasa Saa Sey sohungSohung "I am God, God is me." . I mean I have a long breath, I can do it, that's what I gave you. It will give you nothing, don't expect anything, it will give you capacity to breathe one breath a minute. So that means you can control your death. That means anything which comes around to kill you, you can control, you understand what I am telling you? You follow? That's all it is.

If you do not know how to control your deadly environments, you shall not survive respectfully, gracefully, nobly, fulfilled. Something like that. I am not saying you should be negative or positive, all I am saying is, negative language, negative words, negative approach, negative communication, whatever negative is, it drains from your destiny the positive. Any money spent means lower bank balance. Do you understand in the terms of money? You keep on writing checks, you keep on writing checks, finally your check will bounce and during the day if you say more negative things or think more negative things or project more negative things than positive, that is the minus balance of the day. That means you are draining out your psyche.

If a person gets angry once a day, now I get angry many times when I want, but I prepare myself, I pretend to be angry and I am very good actor in it. But later on, after a minute you say I say well, now what next? And it shocks people, they don't understand. But angry I can become and I have a good practice to wake you up. If you take my blood pressure and I get very angry and hyper, my eyes will bulge out, the whole thing, you take my blood pressure later will exactly be the same. It won't affect. But once a while now, I slip. I goof. So I have learnt, I am not going to do it. You know what I am doing?

So basically, the law is, if you get angry once a day or negative once a day, depressed once a day, you eat up your entire glandular power of your blood, period. In other words, you drain out your day's energy. Rest of the time you are living on a fluke. Any sexual act, any, which is not conscious control, takes away week's energy from you and when it is consciously controlled it gives you week's energy. Can you understand that? That's why if you read kamasutra, there are lot of rituals, you will go crazy, what for, you know, get in, get out, what is this? Run your pump, they don't do that.

If your glandular system does not secrete at three paces before performance of act, you will lose nine pace psycho electromagnetic field's energy, your wattage will come from six to two point two. Your body runs on electricity. You can measure it. So this body is a big mechanized house. If you ever take PCP once or two hundred times, doesn't matter, you have a solid mind, so solid, you can't think negative and positive at all. If you get on a trip of negative you are negative, positive, positive, you do not know what is negative, what is positive. If you have smoked a marijuana to the extent that you are just high or your eyes has gone glazed once, just once. Without any action, without any thought, you always will be daydreaming, doesn't matter who you are. Your daydreams will be stronger than your day's action.

I didn't start 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.

I could have been good hatha 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. , just have disciples, become 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. myself, have fun. You know. I did it because I wanted something for the future. I wanted to create 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. for the future, from the sons and daughters of this land, I wanted this tradition of Rajyog to live forever. I am not unaware who you are, I mean, I know your habits, I know your nature, I know what you want, I know the culture of this country, I know everything. I am not upset with that and I am not saying everybody should just follow me. No way. Have your fun. But practically I know, if you do not have self-control, you do not have yourself. No favor to anybody. I mean, don't lay the number. There is nobody involved between you and you.

Yesterday was funny day. One of the girls was very, very, very mad at me. Well, I satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. in the room in private and, "You are mad?"

She said, "Yes. I am dead mad."

I said, "Good. You are mad at me?"

She said, "Who else I have to get mad at?"

So I said, "If there is nobody else, I am responsible, right?"

She said, "Yes."

I said, "Good, so you are mad at me and you are very mad at me?"

"Yes."

I said, "Could you tell me what for?"

And she said, "I don't know."

I said, "You are mad at me, you are very mad at me and you do not know why you are mad at me."

She said, "Yeah."

"You know everything."

I said, "Well, now I know everything. You are mad at me and you are mad at me alone and you are very mad at me and I know everything, right?" I said, "But would you like to know something?"

She said, "What?"

I said, "Just get up and look at the mirror."

So she got up and looked at the mirror, "I mean, how you look?"

She said, "Horrible. Terrible. I look miserable."

I said, "Now turn around. How do I look?"

She said, "You look calm, serene, quiet, you are laughing. Why you are laughing?"

I said, "Don't get mad at me. I am just telling you look at the mirror and look at me."

She said, "But do you know why I am mad at you?"

I said, "Yes."

"What you want to do about it?"

I said, "Nothing yet. I mean to say, I am doing whatever I can and I am slow, I am stupid, I am sorry, what I can say to you. I know everything, I took very long time to train you, I cannot tell you everything directly, you do not have the nerves and you freak out very often, so I have to cater to you and push you and cater you and push you. But listen, you progressed quite a bit. Now you are all the time mad at me because you feel that why I didn't tell you ten years from now?"

She said, "Why?"

I said, "You were not ready."

She said, "That's why I am mad at you. I was ready. I came to you."

I said, "That's true. I remember, I called you, you came, you did a good job. Then you asked me first question, why you called me and what do you want?"

I said, "That's not the way to learn. You came, you said I am here, tell me what you want? I would have told you in two-three years matter would have been over with. You took a very long time. Now all of a sudden you have realized that what you are learning now you should have been learning ten years ago and now, instead of being grateful to me you are mad at me. See what opposite way life is." I said, "You are no different than anybody. Lot of people get mad at me when I tell them what to do and they don't want to do or they can't do, they do not know why."

I have a vested interest, selfish interest, because if you look good and you become good, tomorrow will be good and I'll be secure because I am not your tomorrow, you are my tomorrow. You have to understand relationship. I am not your yesterday, that was your own. All I am is your today. I am not your tomorrow, you are my tomorrow. So I have to do my best to keep you alive, keep you going and want you to be successful, want you to be best. It is the most personal selfish trip I am at. But that's the way teacher is. I am not a preacher. I don't want you to worship me, I don't want you to respect me, I don't want you to care for me. I care two hoots, if you say you love me, I say thank you. If you don't thank you. It doesn't make any difference.

People who leave 3HO I don't care. But what bothers me is that they do not carry those beautiful traditional values at all. They fall from there to there where they started with me. I don't care you are negative or positive, all I care is you are successful, can you handle tomorrow perfect, will people respect you, will people trust you, will people know you, will you have lot of energy because people like you. You want to be on your own trip, you are alone. Just remember that. Do you want to be permanently alone? Aren't you blind? Don't you see I came to United States, I never knew the difference between boulevard and freeway. I had no friend whatsoever. None. I didn't have home, I didn't have money, nothing. I have nothing even now. But I have never changed. That didn't bother me, this doesn't bother me. What bothers me is when I cannot do the job which I have to do.

So long you do not worry, you worry for lot of things. Don't worry. But just worry for one thing. You must deliver excellently and no personality involved. If you are excellent, you are dormant. If you are excellent you are absolutely beautiful, creative, intelligent, wonderful, you are dormant. So long you do not deliver, you are dormant. You have no value. You cannot be trusted, you cannot be appreciated, you cannot be loved, you cannot be liked. You know all the scriptures, you have all the values, you know all the standards, you know all the art, you know all the science, you are just encyclopedia. What is the cost of encyclopedia? A thousand dollars? What is it? Britannica encyclopedia costs how much? Two thousand now? So if with all the knowledge and perfection and beauty and wonder of the world and you have every knowledge like encyclopedia, Britannia you are worth two thousand dollars in all life and if your dead body goes to a hospital and is sold, your skeleton is worth twelve hundred dollars. That is your value in money. You are priceless, on one side you are worth two thousand dollars, on the other side you are priceless if you deliver and you are ever living priceless, ever, repeat this word. Ever living priceless...

Students: Ever living priceless.

YB: If you leave legacy. A path for the people to follow. An inspiration for people to copy. A style of life people to know.

And that's what I want to see you as. Personified God. Why? Because this is our mool mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind. Mantra is a wave, a repetition of sound and rhythm that directs or controls the mind. When you recite a mantra you have impact through the meridian points in the mouth, through its meaning, through its pattern of energy, through its rhythm, and through its naad - energetic shape in time. Recited correctly a mantra will activate areas of the nervous system and brain and allow you to shift your state and the perceptual vision or energetic ability associated with it. , this is our root mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind.

Akal Moorat, pictorial God.

Akal Moorat means pictorial God. You are the picture of God. Your thoughts, your action, your projections, your manipulation, whatever you do, whatever action you take, conscious, unconscious, subconscious, it should represent the infinite God, really. You don't have to search God. You don't have to introduce yourself, let your action introduce you. Is it written on my forehead 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. JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. ? Do I have four arms, do I fly at night? What is that I do which you don't, I go to bathroom like you. I eat like you. But I don't talk like you. Between you and me there is only one difference. I want to see you as God, I see you as God and I want to be sure that you are God. That's all my talk is converged at, that's the central base. That is my antarAntar , Bantar , Jantar , Mantar , Tantar , Patantar , Sotantar These describe the sequence of creative expression from inner essence to full manifestation. Antar is the inner essence and being. It is before form. Each essence has an associated structure in time and space, a dimension to it, bantar. This structure is fulfilled by an appropriate matching set of qualities, jantar, which has a unique sound resonance, mantar, and a distinct visual form, yantar. This form and energy interrelate to the universe, tantar, creating a projection and track as it threads through time and space, patantar, until finally achieving its liberated form, beyond time and space, sotantar. This form creates a neutral point that ties together many of the polarities inherent in Prakirti to embed and express the essence of the antar in creation. , that is nucleus.

Guru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. has blessed me with this 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. . He created me in me the lunatic love, lunatic love of seeing everybody as divine, making everybody divine. Feeling everybody divine. That's what I do. I do it personally, professionally, that's what my approach to you is. I believe if I say one woman and give her purity, I am giving purity to one generation. I believe that. I am not collecting bunch of girls here, so I can feel hero about it. I believe each one of you, Christian, Jew, Moslem, Sikh, Hindu, blah, blah, blah, African, German, northern, eastern, I don't care what you are. All I care is God created you. God...

Students: Created you.

YB: And you should create God. Why not? Don't create a Sikh God, create Jewish God, create Christian God, who cares? God is God. God created you. 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. , God created you, KarmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions.

What you create? Comfort, environment, commotional satisfaction. You want to romance? Romance with God, the whole universe will romance with you. You want to date? Date God within you. The universe will serve you. Whatever, you want to have sex, have sex with the Infinity of God. That's why there is fun in Hindu DharmaDharma 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. . Lingam, Shiva's lingam, penis of Shiva is being worshipped and look at that, it is in yoni, it is in the vagina of the female. That's what the statue is. They worship it because they say sex cannot be ugly, it cannot be dirty, it cannot be made that way, elevate it. Elevate it to the point of worship. Elevate your social life to be Divinity.

A man with a robe goes as padre everything kneels, everybody bends, everybody calls him Holy Father. He is just a man. But the robe does it. Your robe is your arc line, at most bright, platinum arc around you, that halo. That halo made you a human. Halo. Human. Halo, mental being, three things got together, they call you human being. If your presence doesn't work, if your halo doesn't work, your whole game is gone. It won't work.

What you can give me? What you can give me, give it to yourself. What you cannot give yourself, what you can give me? What I can give you? I can only give you what I have. If this bottle is empty, it can't give water, if it has water it can give you water. If there is nothing in you, you can't give it to anybody. You promise. You lie. You can't give. No fault of yours, you don't have it. You think you have it. You propagate you have it. You think you are beautiful because you look beautiful, that doesn't mean you are beautiful. You think you are wise, you think. You don't act wise, doesn't mean you are wise. Nobody knows, everybody knows. If you want to hear about you, hear it about you in absence.

People say it now openly after twenty years. Oh there is no fun to talk to 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. JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. . What he teaches class, that he talks in living room. That he talks in bedroom, that he talks in bathroom. He is always teaching. It's true. Sometime I have to take telephone into the bathroom just to keep the conversation. I do, because I don't want to break the line, man is on and I am on. That's why lot of telephone you find with long wires.

Once a guy asked, "What are you doing sir?"

I said, "I am sitting on the throne of the universe."

(Students' laughter)

I didn't lie. He said, "What do you mean throne of the universe?"

I said, "Everybody has to sit on this throne. It is a universal throne, that's what I said."

"I don't understand."

I said, "It is a universal throne, I am sitting."

"What are you doing?"

I said, "I am producing the best I can."

(Students' laughter)

I didn't lie. It was a fact, it was the truth and later on I said, "You got to hold on, I have to finish this job and then I'll talk to you."

Then I came to the room and he said, "I don't understand what you were doing?"

I said, "I was in bathroom son and I was answering the greatest call of the nature and I finished and after that I had to clean everything so that was the break, so how are you now?"

He said, "You were talking to me sitting in the bathroom?"

I said, "No, on the very chair."

(Students' laughter)

"Didn't I tell you that I was sitting on the throne of the universe? I was answering the call of the nature."

That's your nature. You know what is your nature? To let your shit go. It's true. Am I wrong? Don't they call when you go to bathroom answering the call of the nature? It's true or not?

Students: Yes sir.

YB: So what is your call of the nature? Let the shit?

Students: (----)

YB: Don't pee and poop in your living room or in your neighborhood or in the community you live or the society you belong to. What you do after doing it? There is a lever in the back of you, remember that white nickel thing? You press that. It goes, along with fifteen gallons of water and the water has to circle. If your bathroom doesn't circle, it don't take your poop. Do you know that? Because it has to take a gravity action of the Earth. Learn from this. You never have details. You don't care. You do it everyday, you don't understand that. That is not answering the call of God, that is answering the call of nature. Your nature is that you cannot live with pee and poop. Your nature is that you cannot stink.

Your very nature is that you are pure. Don't put your garbage on yourself. Don't spread your mental garbage. That's your very basic nature. Answer the call of the nature. Nature will serve you, God is compassionate, God is one, God is everywhere, God will forgive, nature doesn't. Those who do not answer the call of nature, nature curses them to death in absolute pain. Nature has no mercy. If you don't believe me, ask the one who is constipated. If you don't like what I am saying sit with a man who pass(fart) (?). Like that,

(Students' laughter)

And in one minute you know what you are smelling and you part(fart) all the time with your friends and with your people through your speaking tongue. You lay the shit out on a silver platter to the next person and then you want to be respected, trusted, appreciated, loved?

"Beejey bik mangey amritAmrit , Aamrit The nectar of bliss; also the ceremony in which a person dedicates their life to the Khalsa. , dekho yeh nyav"

You sow the poison, you ask the nectar? What kind of justice is this says Nanak. You want to be trusted and people know you get depressed. You want to be loved and people know you are moody. You want to be respected and people know you are weird. Are you crazy? Who you are fooling whom? Who is fooling whom? And how long you can play the gimmick? How long you live non-realistically and wants to be understood as real. Hey ten carat diamond, hundred thousand dollars. Ten carat (?) hundred dollars. Though (?) is brighter than the diamond and almost (?) has some (?) are so good they are about 9.5 hard, diamond is just ten carat hard. They are bright, they shine, their cut is perfect. But (?) is (?), it shall never be diamond. You want to live as (?), you want to have qualities and values of the (?) and you want to expect a price of a diamond, now what injustice more can be? And you hate the one who wants you to be diamonds. Like he wants to cut your facet and you hate it.

I believe every human being has the capacity to be great because every human being is the creation of the great Lord. I believe, it's my faith. This is my religion, this is my trust. I believe soul is part of God and I believe if through the power of the yoga I know one can raise, elevate that spirit, that soul. Everybody can shine. I know every lamp, when it is lit it can spread the light. I know when the candle is lit darkness is removed. I know when your soul is awaken you are perfect. I believe in it. But you can't keep floating your garbage. You can't have a tank where garbage and your poop and pee floats and you want people to come and drink. It can't happen. Nobody comes to a sewage plant pool to take bath. You know what a sewage system and those pool costs? Couple million dollars. They are very costly pools. How many of you have gone and taken a bath there? Go for a swimming? You don't. You live like a septic tank and you want to be worshipped like a nectar tank, how it is possible? Just decide with yourself what you want to be and so be it and drop everything else. Concentrate.

I had a one pokedar turban pink, a pokedar pant and a bush shirt. Bush shirt was four inches shorter than my body, so my buttons were never closed, if I ever close them, they broke. I didn't know how to laundry, someday they taught me if you put twenty-five cents and then that detergent falls, then you put your shirt it can come up clean. I thought that's the way it is. I opened that box, I did the whole thing, I started it, I put my shirt, after a while I came, it was all stopped, they pulled it out, there was a big pulp there.

(Students' laughter)

I don't know what happened to my shirt.

(Students' laughter)

I took the pulp, put it on the paper, brought back and they said what it is? I said my shirt. Whether I put more detergent or it revolved more or it got stuck, I don't know, I never went there after to do my laundry ever. That was enough an experience.

Students: (----)

YB: Aah????

Students: (----)

YB: Urologist, sorry, I said, see how much I know between those two.

(Students' laughter)

He thought I am going to pay it cash. He said, "No, no, no, no, you are covered, Dr. Khalsa has called me."

I said, "No, by the way, what is it?"

"Three hundred some dollars."

And I laughed. He said, "Why you are laughing?"

I said, "If somebody gives me thirty thousand dollars I won't do it what you have done." I said, "I can't."

And he laughed, he said, "I do it about eighty people a day."

(Students' laughter)

It is so painful, so hurtful and still you pay three hundred and fifty dollars. You know why? Because he is expert and you are not. You believe, he knows what he is doing and you do not know what is going on. That's what you pay for.

If you even fake it, you know you are divine and you deliver it that you are divine, the world will trust you. There is not one person who will not fall in love with you. If you want to be moody be moody, be in ecstasy, it's mood also. Some people will call you spaced out, some will call you divine. But be something real. Don't anymore live in duality. Duality is yoyo, duality is waste of time, duality is waste of life, duality is waste of your beautiful self. The tragedy is, if you do not know truth you are innocent about it, that's fine, but if you know truth and you don't live it that's the tragedy and none of you...

Bij mantarAntar , Bantar , Jantar , Mantar , Tantar , Patantar , Sotantar These describe the sequence of creative expression from inner essence to full manifestation. Antar is the inner essence and being. It is before form. Each essence has an associated structure in time and space, a dimension to it, bantar. This structure is fulfilled by an appropriate matching set of qualities, jantar, which has a unique sound resonance, mantar, and a distinct visual form, yantar. This form and energy interrelate to the universe, tantar, creating a projection and track as it threads through time and space, patantar, until finally achieving its liberated form, beyond time and space, sotantar. This form creates a neutral point that ties together many of the polarities inherent in Prakirti to embed and express the essence of the antar in creation. sarb ko gian. Everybody of you know, all of you know, everybody of you know that you want to be excellent. Then don't play in circles. Be excellent. Deliver it. That is God, G O D generating, organizing, and delivering or destroying. If you cannot, what you cannot deliver shall be destroyed.

Martin Luther King Junior, heard of him? A black activist leader? Right? They have so many allegations against him. You know that? He just started constantly talking about peace and peaceful means, non-violent movement and followed the path of Gandhi. True? He got shot. He died. Isn't he one of the saint, hero, man of peace of America whether you like it or not, because he was consistent.

You know whenever I go somewhere people sometime want my card and then they wonder who am I? You know? And my secretary is around, she introduces, he 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, bah, bah, bah you know takes two hours and still they say, they look at it, is it, really? Really what she is saying true or not. It's very simple, I got my cards printed in the back if you cannot see God in all you cannot see God at all. Nobody ever asked now what is he? Absolutely no conversation. I give him the card he looks at it, he turns around and that's it. Done. Totally cooked, done, delivered. No introduction is required. One sentence, those two lines do all talking, till I live, till I die, till I will be remembered, those two lines. Nobody can duplicate, it's a trademark.

My second beauty is, you give me the most complicated conversation I'll make it into very simple. You wonder why? Simple, every problem has an answer in it. You do not have one problem for which you have no solution. The problem is you are chasing the problem and you are not chasing the solution. Whenever there is a problem you get mad. You don't bring yourself to zero and then start positive.

You have three minds, negative, positive, neutral. Your positive mindPositive Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It elaborates, magnifies, extends, and assists. It asks, "How can this help me? How can I use this? What is the positive side of this?" if loses its connection with subconscious, brings you your memory, you are ruined. You will never make it. That's why I said those who live in their past have no future. Past is already gone, it's over with, all you can bring it back by your memory, that's all. Today is going whether you like it or not, worry about tomorrow, plan about tomorrow, strategy tomorrow and be the best. Yesterday was worst, it was yesterday, today is going bad okay, tomorrow make it best. You shall succeed. Simple rule of success. Plan tomorrow and stick with that success, excellence. Your excellence for tomorrow will make people forget your bad past and stinky today.
