Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Prosperity

“Prosperity is like a rosebud. As it expresses its true nature, its fragrance attracts all. Prosperity is always present within.”
-Aquarian Times, Autumn 2001

"God gives to those who are open-minded and open-hearted. Let God come in and prosperity come in. Let God always bless you."

“It doesn’t matter what you have or what you don’t have; it matters only how easily you can let go.”
-Aquarian Times, Autumn 2001

“The Three Laws of Prosperity:
Be kind to everyone.
Speak not ill of others.
Speak not ill of yourself.”

-Aquarian Times, Autumn 2001

“Prosperity doesn’t mean that you will have wealth, health and happiness. The best way to explain prosperity is to say it is like a rosebud when it flowers and opens up, and shares its fragrance. That’s the moment, which lasts a few days, when a rose flower is prosperous. When a man or woman is prosperous, it is the fragrance of security, grace, depth, character and truthfulness that a person can share. Like a candle emits light, a human emits prosperity.”

“Your wealth will increase, your values will increase, your projection will increase, if you simply love to live, just love yourself and live yourself. See how many people come to you.”

"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. 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."

"Success, happiness, and constant prosperity are the result of mastering the mind."
-The Mind

"Say you become the richest person, then what? What can you do? You cannot eat unlimited chapatis when you are hungry! But you can be good to an unlimited strength."

“Everything is thought—God is thought, Earth is thought, names are thought, everything is just thought. But demonstratively entertain no thought, ‘I am not, all is zero.’ Give yourself a thoughtless grace and it will be a very good bargain when the subconscious doesn’t act and the unconscious gives you intuition. Automatically your job will be done. That’s the end of poverty and the beginning of prosperity.”

"If you feel just one thing in your life—that life is nothing but the gift of God—you are divine and the most courageous person. Try it! Try it as a thought. The moment you feel that life is a gift, you’ll become prosperous."

"Wealth means character, characteristics, straightforwardness, honesty, courage—these are all values. This is all called wealth. We gather together money with the idea that what we cannot get otherwise, we will buy. But you cannot buy courage; you cannot buy character." 12/29/02

"I know you need prosperity, you need peace, and you need happiness. They shall come to you if you are willing to invest in life, if you are willing to invest in your children, if you are willing to invest in your relationships. You have to invest, because if you don't, life will go sour. My prayer is that you must be aware that it is you and you alone who can invest in your own tomorrow so that you can be healthy, happy, and holy."

"What happens when you speak positive? When you speak positive there is no negative left to express and then there is a gap. Then in that gap comes the super positive and that's what we call God. It is an attitude of gratitude. Attitude of gratitude is when you are grateful for every breath of life. People ask, “What should we do when we feel something is wrong?” When there is something wrong, thank God that it is not you. When you feel there is something good, thank God that you have learned something. And this way you can process your life and progress your life. What will happen? You will get high-spirited. You will rise and fill the vacuum. From nature will come wealth and prosperity. Otherwise your poverty is proportionate to your emotionalism. And your bad relationship and bad sex and bad marriage is equal to your commotionalism. These are forces. I am not saying get rid of them. I am saying they will get rid of you. There is nothing you can do. You may try your best."

"It is your manners which will decide you. Cheap you act, cheap you will be. Priceless you act, infinite you will be."

"The bow of gratitude and arrow of mercy will give you everything. Gratitude will turn your attitude into mercy and mercy will bring you dharma and dharma will give you prosperity." 

"You must know you have an unlimited reserve of energy. Once you invoke your energy, there is nothing that is small in you. All the environments start flying towards you. It’s beautiful."

"Prosperity is a state produced immediately by the mind. When the sun comes out of the clouds, everything is lit. When the mind comes out of duality, prosperity is there."
