“Cross the boundaries which have never been crossed, walk into hearts which have never been open, shake hands which hate to be shaken, go and bring people out of their holes so they can be holy.”
-Yogi Bhajan, 6/20/93
There is only one planet but there are 7 billion worlds. Each one of us lives in our own little world. Our world consists of our little circle of people, routines, beliefs and values—all of which can be severely limiting.
We have been conditioned by the news media to fear one another. Have you noticed what is generally covered in the news? We see humanity at its worst—incidents of violence, murder, hatred, corruption and all else unimaginable. No wonder most people fear their fellow human beings. We live in a world filled with fear. But remember that the news is only one perspective of the world, albeit magnified and believed to be the absolute truth and this is not true.
Remember when you were a child and you were convinced that there were monsters under the bed or hiding in your closet ready to pounce on you? You screamed and one of your parents switched on the light and like magic the monsters ceased to exist. Without the light of awareness the mind’s imagination can run rampant, creating all kinds of stories about how that stranger is going to harm you or a loved one.
To be in the dark now is to live in fear. If you choose to bridge your world, then you will make a beautiful discovery: most people are good, kind and are more like you than you realize. This doesn’t mean that the ones who are acting out are bad; it only means they are the ones screaming the loudest to be loved.
Now more than ever it is important to be a bridge builder for the Aquarian Age, meaning wherever you go, build a bridge from your world to another person’s world. Get to know the cashier at your local grocery store and the barista’s name. Talk to people as you wait in line. Get to know your neighbors and your work colleagues. Ask them questions, help them if you can and offer them a smile and a friendly face. People are longing for this connection during these times of turmoil. Prove the news wrong and help people trust again in the goodness of humanity.
To be a bridge builder is to be a giver. The most effective and efficient way to raise your frequency is to pour the love in your heart into that of another. How we did math in the Piscean Age was 2 - 1 = 1, meaning I have 2 oranges and I give you one orange and that leaves me only one orange. In the Aquarian Age 2 -1 = Infinity, meaning that when I give unconditionally to another I receive far more than I initially gave. This is like the Sun—the Sun feeds itself by its continual giving of light and warmth.
Don’t believe me—go out and try this for yourself. Go be a bridge builder and be kind to someone you would not normally reach out to. Give unconditionally to a stranger.
Once in a grocery store, the man in front of me didn’t have enough money for his pizza and had to return it. I said that I would gladly pay for it as I would never want to deprive a pizza lover like myself from his favorite food. He looked at me like I gave him a million dollars and in energy I did feel like a millionaire. When you give unconditionally to people, it shocks them awake, it touches their heart, and it reminds them of the true nature of humanity.
We have simply forgotten our fellowship with each other. At our essence we are a kind, compassionate and caring species. And we who have been blessed with the technology of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation and the teachings of Yogi Bhajan have been given the responsibility and honor to remind those of us who have forgotten this timeless truth.
