(Includes Meditation to Develop the Frontal Lobe)
By Guruka Singh Khalsa
The Aquarian Age is upon us now. Yes, right now. Each day I see the signs everywhere. Command and control structures are failing and being replaced with teamwork and consensus. That which could be easily hidden is quickly coming to light. It’s time to flow or go. It’s time to let go—to let go of our old mental frameworks and rigid forms. It’s time to let go of our fears and self-belittlement. It’s time to escape the trap of ego and control. The dawn of this new awareness is dispelling the darkness, ignorance, and ugliness of the past. The angels are washing their windows. It is a time of blessing and a time of hard work.
It’s time to come to our senses! It’s time to be real with each other and to know that you already know everything there is to know. Now is the time to pay attention. Now is the time to wake up!
The beauty and uniqueness of the Aquarian Age is us: you and me.
"Those who deeply know who they are, and have worked hard, can rejoice and go Home. O Nanak! Their faces shine with joy and they take many others along." Japji, Guru Nanak
Success in these times depends on just one thing: your intuition must work, and you must know how to listen to it. The mind is just too slow. It served us for the last 2000 years, but it will take you round and round in circles if you let it. The time of the mind is over. Our brain works. The brain is much bigger than the mind. We already know the answers. All we have to do is pay attention and act.
You know, it's always a bit funny to me to hear all the excitement about the “Age of Aquarius.” It’s all just the evolution of consciousness on the planet, and though it’s accelerating asymptotically, it’s a continuous and steady process. Now what about the coming Age of Capricorn? Then we'll really get down to business!
Meditation to Develop the Frontal Lobe and Hypothalamus
Taught by Yogi Bhajan, August 8, 2000
"There are three stages of time. One is yesterday, one is today, and one is tomorrow… And there is no such thing as tomorrow. If tomorrow does not become today, there shall be no tomorrow. You cannot meet tomorrow face to face. What do you think? Tomorrow will become today and then it will face you… Birds have no worry of tomorrow. They only make their nest when they are to lay their eggs. That is their only tomorrow. And when it’s over, everything is over. Have you seen birds coming and opening a bank account? Or carrying a packet of food with them? No. They are not subject to the limits of time and space. They fly, they go. Where they see food, they get it. They are constantly living in today. But you as human beings live today and work for tomorrow, which you cannot face. That’s why some are too rich, some are too poor, some are too angry…
"We have two things in our body; frontal lobe and upper palate. We need to practice stimulation and control. These are two things in the body which are underdeveloped. And you can only develop them by imagination and by certain permutations and combinations of words with the tongue, so you can get the result." -Yogi Bhajan
1. Sit in Easy Pose with hands in Gyan Mudra, resting on the knees.
2. Eyes at the tip of the nose, nine parts closed, one part open.
3. Chant Wha Hay Guroo, Wha Hay Guroo, Wha Hay Guroo, Wha Hay Jeeo. Continue for 31 minutes.
"We need music for the rhythm. We need these words because their permutation and combination make the tongue to touch the upper palate meridian points accurately… Keep the spine straight for strength." -Yogi Bhajan
4. Inhale, remain in the posture, and begin Long Deep Breathing. Continue for 3 minutes.
"Concentrate on the sound you have listened to and chanted. Breath should be strongest, longest, and most powerful. This is a time for your virtue of the breath to be in control of you. This is the moment you have to create all the power within yourself. Concentrate on the breath. With each breath feel God within you, with each sound feel the Universe around you. And this power which you are creating, nobody can take away from you. When it becomes your total power as per your own excellence, you will be recognized by all human beings, birds, and animals." -Yogi Bhajan
5. Inhale deep. Straighten your spine and squeeze the entire fiber of your body to create one electromagnetic field. Hold tight. Fire out (exhale powerfully through the mouth). Repeat 2 more times.
