By cleansing your mind your soul will shine through you.
Keep the path of meditation to the point that you cleanse yourself, so that you can come out of the wounds.
Try to realize that there is a built-in cleansing process in your body, like lymph glands, sweat glands, liver cleans your blood, kidneys clean your blood. There are so many cleansing systems in your mechanical body. In your mental body also, there is a huge vastness of consciousness, which cleanses you always, always, and forever if you want it.
Kundalini Yoga is an individual conscious cleansing process. As person you have to know with your emotion, with your feelings, with your security and insecurity, your commotions, and your imagination. If I take all that away from you and do not give you intelligence, intuition, knowledge and consciousness, then I am doing the worst of all to you. The Law of the Vacuum is, there is no vacuum. So the process is, slowly and gradually, you become more aware, more intelligent, more intuitive.
Understand what meditation is. At that time repeat Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru. That's meditation. Meditation is not closing your eyes and feeling blessed and good and all that. I don't know who says this. I have never understood that that can be a meditation anywhere. It's a mental cleansing process by self-will and whatever the garbage of the day is, it must pass through as negative and you must cut it with a mantra and make it positive,
Meditation is your first habit. Every human should meditate to keep the mind clean. Meditation is nothing but cleansing the mind through a process. You will take a bath so that you may not stink, but if you don’t take a bath and you put on cologne, you will stink differently. Meditation is the cleansing of the mind so that mind can tell you who you are.
Clean the body, yes, we take a bath one, two, three times a day. How many times do you meditate to clean the mind? You take a bath to clean the body; you meditate to clean the mind. There is nothing more to it.
The art of meditation is very simple: to clean your mind. The wheel of life has two sides to it, body and mind. And soul is the axle on which it goes on and on. We meditate because we want a clear mind. A clear mind can give you intuition and intuition can let you know the cause and effects. For the effects you don't want to face, you drop the cause. You can't drop the effect.
You are supposed to remain you, come what may. That is the actual strength of your mind when it is clean and clear.
The Mind by Yogi Bhajan
We have the fastest and the most wonderful power—our own mind. It can take us to God. It can take us to ourselves. It can take us deep into our self or far out into the universe. When clean and open the mind can do anything that we want.
