Yogi Bhajan Lecture: Be a Giver Like God
The following excerpt is from The Master’s Touch (KRI, 2000), p. 276.
Seva. Service. Selfless service is seva. Once you heal a person and servicefully, selflessly have an infinite jurisdiction, you will always be loved and remembered.
Even now when I travel I meet people who say, “Ahh, Yogi Bhajan, I met you in 1972, in such and such place.”
I said, “What are you doing now?”
“I am the CEO of that company.”
I said, “You used to run around without pants.”
He said, “Oh, that was then.”
People don’t forget that touch. People don’t forget that when they were overdosed on drugs, we took care of them, in spite of what their conditions were.
You have the whole world at your command to be students. Not, “I have two-thousand students, I have one-hundred centers.” This is too small. It’s a shadow. You are born to remove shadows, you are not supposed to live in shadows. It’s time to grow and go to all four corners of the world. It’s time to spread not you, but the Word. It’s time to become the agents of God, rather than the agents of your ego.
But have patience. Patience pays. Prove it. When the karma of your previous incarnation will be cleansed out, and your courage is steady, then everything will start working for you without saying a thing. That is the state of life we must achieve. We must know, “God and me, me and God, are One” —forever. Not in the morning, “God and me, me and God are One,” and in the afternoon, “God and me, no God, me, me, me.” Stop doing this “me, me, me, me, me.” Get out of all that.
