Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa, Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh.
Today is November 11th, 2005. It is a date that I have looked forward to and dreaded all at the same time. One mustnâ€™t believe in astrology, I understand. But still â€“ here we are- about to go into the last seven year cycle in the transition between the ages.
When Yogi Bhajan first came to the United States in the late 1960â€™s, there was a lot of singing and talking about the Aquarian Age. Thereâ€™s even a musical â€“ Hair â€“ with an entire song dedicated to the theme. While pop culture has forgotten about the fact that we are going through a cusp period between two ages (the Piscean and the Aquarian) â€“ in our little corner of the world, it is a subject that Yogi Bhajan taught about at length. And the key theme he repeated over and over again was: Look â€“ the transition time is going to be difficult, people are going to go crazy. You have to be in a position to help them, to serve them, to teach them, to heal them. If you canâ€™t reach out and help elevate someone from their pain and misery, who is going to do it?
Stars and planets, zodiac ages and the center of the galaxy. It is for every individual to decide for themselves whether the Hukam which guides creation can be understood through the stars. There is the One Creator behind it all, guiding it according to Divine Will. And as Guru Nanak says in Japji Sahib â€“ no one can talk about what that Hukam is â€“ although everything is contained within it.
For myself, because today starts the last seven year cycle in the transition between the ages, I do want to share with all of you a little bit of what he shared with us. Because deep in my heart, I believe it is important.
