Yogi Bhajan Lecture: Woman and Prosperity
Excerpts from a lecture by Yogi Bhajan on June 28, 2001
Woman has a natural power of abundance, good luck, and prosperity, if she decides to concentrate on it. If a woman invokes the Divine, there is no reason that she will not be prosperous. Her discipline guarantees it. But as a female she wastes her energy in many ways. A woman with good manners concentrates on prosperity. What is that? What is prosperity? It is when she expands herself with good will, good manners, and smiles, counseling others, and uplifting others.
Whenever a woman decides to concentrate on all these good things, prosperity in abundance is assured. But if she wastes her time betraying, yelling, screaming, calling names, being rude, poverty is assured. For a woman, health, wealth, and happiness lie in her good manners.
Kindness is an essential part of every female. In kindness, as she expands, prosperity comes with it. She will have more friends. She will have more opportunities. Good luck will knock at her door when she is kind, compassionate, and has good manners.
Every aspect of the Universe is at the tip of the fingers of the woman who decides to be compassionate, kind, and caring. Just stop. Just wait. Don’t react. Just don’t react. Then the whole Universe is available to you. A woman wastes all her energy by being jealous, neurotic, talking negatively, and competing and comparing in a very negative way. These are not essential for her life.
There is no good and bad. There is no guilt, there is no sin. There is no wrong, there is no right. There is only our own insanity or our own meditative concentration.
A woman can make a palace out of a straw house. On this planet, the only mammal who can transform life is the woman. She has ‘x’ amount of energy. If she doesn’t waste her energy in many different ways and she concentrates in one way, that’s it. If she means it, then there is nothing which can stop her from becoming prosperous.
You want to know what God is? You, as you are! But three thousand years of religious training is asking you to deny this. God is a living energy and lives in you. Can you accept this? We are never disconnected; we are always everywhere. Our psyches connect us. That’s called faith. We are never separated. But sometimes we forget. If we cannot be affectionate with each other, then the result will be negative. Let us see in our goodness how good we can be.
When you don’t give anybody anything you will never be prosperous. The first principle of life as a human is to be loving. You must meet people. You must receive people. You must talk to people. You must share your wisdom with people. You think God is far away from you. Test it out. If your love is true and true is your love, then all that is in the Universe belongs to you. Love first, everything will come to you.
