The 3rd Sutra of the Aquarian Age is: “When the time is on you, start, and the pressure will be off.” What makes this particular wisdom one of the five sutras for the Aquarian Age?
In the Aquarian Age we are being guided and supported to transform our consciousness as never before. We have the opportunity in this unprecedented evolutionary time to work and play in new ways within our relationship to Infinity.
This sutra is a powerful tool for connecting to soul, spirit guidance, vitality, and inspiration, as well as for creating successful experiences in your life journey. This makes it a sutra for the Aquarian Age.
When you are experiencing pressure you have a choice. You can let it run you or you can let it guide. When you allow the pressure to run you, it becomes a source of stress. When you use it as guidance, it becomes a resource for increased vitality and relaxation.
If you are in the flow of spirit, then when you listen to this guidance, the whole Universe supports you. As you are moving in the direction your soul knows to go, the pressure will transform.
Any sensation of pressure will be a guidance to start in some way. Starting does not necessarily mean to push through resistance. Rather, at this point a useful option is to simply become present. Tune in, listen, feel, and notice the sensations in your awareness. Allow the moment to deliver information through your sensory system and intuition.
Possible sources for the sensation of pressure are:
- Your inner guidance is communicating that it is time to move, take action. It’s saying, “Yes, do that and the time is now.”
- You have some resistance that is causing you to procrastinate.
If the pressure is from procrastination, consider various possibilities for your hesitancy:
- You are feeling a lack of energy, time, space, confidence, motivation, or inspiration.
- This is guidance that this task/project isn’t the right thing for you or it isn’t the best timing.
- You are being run by subconscious blocks; old patterns that no longer serve you.
- You are avoiding a sensation you identify as fear, which may be signaling an alert of something needing attention or a subconscious pattern holding you back that may be ready and useful to transform.
So when you notice a sensation of pressure, this is the time to take a moment and become present with all that is, here and now. This awareness opens up a whole field of possibilities to play with. Consciousness technologies such as Kundalini Yoga, White Tantric Yoga®, and TrueSelf Transformation have been given to effectively assist you in creating the life experience you are seeking by transforming old patterns and opening new pathways.
“What is yoga? It is a science which unites our technology, which unites the finite with Infinity.”
-Yogi Bhajan, 7/29/78
Whatever the situation, whether you simply need to do a small task towards a larger project or it is a life-changing moment where clarity is called for, simply starting in some way creates movement. Within this movement lies the power for unwinding and dissolving any heaviness or stagnation—releasing energy.
Starting when the time is on you can be used as a resource for energy! As you move, you can connect with your creativity and Infinite Source, providing vitality.
“Because you are the Infinity, as Infinite you will be, that much happy you will be. As limited you will be, that much unhappy you will be. Therefore you must project through the Ajana—which is the third eye or the sixth center of consciousness—that you are not this, you are not that. You are beyond this and that; you are beyond time and space. That is the start of every human being.”
-Yogi Bhajan, 7/29/78
The practice of the 3rd Sutra, ‘starting when the time is on you,’ has the possibility to connect you to your inner knowing which dwells beyond time and space. Merging in the vastness of that Infinity gives you experience of your connection to the Divine, supporting the inner peace and joy desired and required to live a fulfilled life.
“When you live the life and you know the life and when living and knowing is merged together, that is the life worth. Otherwise, you are under the pressure of time and space and there is no difference between a man and donkey. Both carry the load. You are only free when you are above time and space. When you are afraid of what will happen tomorrow, you are not living. You are just dragging. That is how it is.
Even the spiritual people are afraid of what will happen to them tomorrow. They are not spiritual. Spirit is above time and space. To act towards that end, that you know your tomorrow because you are sure of today, because you have come up yesterday, that's all it is.”
-Yogi Bhajan, 7/29/78
When you live in the flow of soul, and have a habit to follow the guidance energy of spirit, you experience more ease and peace, grace and space in your life. You know your connection to the Infinite is there, always. You know you are not alone. You know you are being guided. You know that whatever unfolds, all is well.
