Game Over: A Poem by Yogi Bhajan
Yogi Bhajan, April 1973
We are now entering fourteen years during which our old game is basically over, and in 2012 it will all be over.
We are going to start playing a new game: the game of love.
The game of love means that you identify yourself as Infinity, not as an Individual, and that’s the huge difference you have to understand.
So whether you are a man or a woman – whether you are argumentative or rational – whether you are withdrawn or aggressive, that’s up to you.
But if you want a happy life you have to become a very simple, solid, mutual, well-mannered and loving person.
It is your manners which will decide you. If you act cheap, cheap you will be. If you act priceless, you will be infinite.
This is the very simple formula of life. People who indulge in the lower chakras will never reach the higher chakras, and people who are stuck in the higher chakras and have never reached the lower chakras are called spaced out.
There has to be a balance. In this balance you have to bounce in life with joy.
Your strength lies in your smiles and in your songs.
Let us reach out for happiness, prosperity, strength and courage, so that time cannot take its toll on us and make our lives worthless.
