Information Age & Relationships

Information Age & Relationships

"This is the Information Age – everybody can be informed about anything and everything.  There is no secret, therefore there is no sacredness.  Life is going to become an open book.  When your computer is more loyal, truthful, informed and excellent than you, you will be challenged.  You do not have to compete with anybody.  You have to compete with yourself.  Sooner or later there will be no marriages, and no relationships, because you will not have the mind to control yourself.  Computers will take over your life and all you will find is frustration.  You have to prepare yourself with a meditative mind and applied consciousness.  Taking shelter in faith and hope will not work.  It does not matter how successful you are—money, environments and success will not give you any strength at all.  Those who are a slave of these and caught up in emotions and commotions are not spiritual.  They have no trust in God.  They have not understood the Greatness of the Ever-Prevailing Lord, the Creator of the Universe.

We need a system to energize ourselves and get going.  Our sadhana should be so perfect that we get into a solid state.  To be simple, to be pure, to Be, is the answer.  Touch your consciousness, intelligence, endurance.  Touch you.  You shall have a mental power, a projection, which must overcome you, yourself and your environments.  Emotion, commotion, second chakra pursuits —a relationship based on these must die.  It has to come from here (Yogi Bhajan points to third eye).  You have to ultimately respect and value the other person, and reverence has to be maintained.  “Come what may between life and death, between earth and heavens and that of God, we shall stay together for each other.  We promise the day, the light of the sun, all stars and moons will be our friends.  All humans will be our guides.  We’ll live a very plush, happy life with the trust of God, our Father in Heavens.” Love other than that is prostitution, debauchery, hateful.  Today you love somebody, tomorrow you walk away.  Human is as vast, as pure and as full of love as Infinity is.  Purity is my first right.  Happiness is my original thought.  Under One God, unto One God I go". – SSS Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji – January 10th, 2000 – Espanola, NM, USA #NM0334

Below is a meditation that was originally taught by Yogi Bhajan after discussing the above topic of information overload. This is a meditation nicknamed "Brain Acupuncture" and will help you relax and deal with the pressure of the times.

MEDITATION – "Brain Acupuncture"

Sit straight in a cross-legged position.  With the right hand in Gyan Mudra, pinch and pull down the right earlobe with the thumb and the forefinger (this stimulates acupressure points to the frontal lobe and the head).  The left hand is on the navel.  Eyes are closed.  Do Long and Deep Breathing through a pursed mouth, whistling on the inhale.  Continue for 31 minutes.  To end, inhale deeply, hold the breath and pinch the earlobe as hard as you can.  Exhale.  Repeat 2 more times, stretching the spine as much as possible.  On the last inhale, also press the navel point as hard as possible.  Relax.
