“Human who lives by the beat of the heart, continuously meditating on the Name of God, shall find heavens here and hereafter.” - Yogi Bhajan


What can I work on this month?

Every month, we invite you to explore different aspects of Yogi Bhajan’s teachings as a teacher or as a student. For that, we use the Aquarian Numerology, based on the spiritual 10 Bodies, the quality and facets of numbers according to the teachings of Yogi Bhajan. Numbers represent a fascinating window to look at our consciousness, to recognize the synchronicity in our lives, and bring a deeper understanding of the interconnected reality we live in.

Receive the gifts of life

Sharing from the heart

Patience pays

Time for a new alignment

This year’s process is about being more clear of what is essential for us, set up priorities and find ways and structures to manifest them in the world. The intense process of the fire element during March has invited us to dissolve the old forms that are not appropriate any more to carry on our intentions. These old structures can have a numbing effect on our perception of the excitement and joy which is the ever lightning spark of our soul. It might have been time to reconsider partnerships, re-evaluate social or legal structures, change priorities for your business.

Whatever has been burning or is still burning in that fire is opening a new field of exploration for the months to come. It can take time for the system to readjust from those changes and see their outcome. April is the time to let our nervous system align itself, to take time to reassess ourselves, to be open to confront our ideas and find resonances through sharing them with other individuals.

From this sharing, the changes that took place on a deep level can be integrated into all the layers of our beings. We can gain a lot of clarity from that process. Clarity is the outcome of an integrated fire.

From a clear perspective, we can welcome the unexpected and new possibilities can be recognized and unfold naturally and “innocently”. This is an essential quality of the neutral mind (4), simply receiving the gifts of life. We suggest keeping the Apana working properly and meditating on the qualities of the sun for this process to unfold with ease. The mantras from Jaap sahib are perfect for that. For those who are in the spring season, it is the time to eat more lightly and let the fire of the spring sunburn the excess of earth and water accumulated in winter.

It could be that unresolved business and grief claim attention and demand restructuring. Our belief system shakes and if this comes unexpected, we might feel some confusion around the urge to change something but not be able to perceive what exactly. We might be taken by doubt, a sense of loss and have a hard time to find the clarity that our neutral mind needs in order to push through.

Especially if our nervous system is not strong, we might feel discouraged, fearful, indecisive, and taken by the memory of old patterns which we believed had left us forever.

It is essential to keep up a practice and to have the courage to keep observing our feelings and thoughts without reacting too impulsively or draw conclusions too early. Let them sink down, as confusion has never been a great adviser.

“…we don’t collect happiness, we collect suffering. Why? Why does man dwell on his sufferings so much?”

A discourse excerpt from Osho

Man is an upside-down being: he collects memories of suffering! We show great interest in unhappiness, we discuss our unhappiness time and time again. Just listen to people: they go on lamenting their suffering, but they will never sing when they are happy! Such an expression just doesn’t exist in our language – that so-and-so is laughing his happiness. But there is an expression that so-and-so is lamenting his suffering. People go on talking about their troubles to one another – as if troubles are worth talking about, as if their trouble was some great news as if they have performed some great feat by being unhappy.

But why does a person dwell so much on his suffering? He doesn’t realize that by doing so he is only committing suicide, because by dwelling on your troubles they become even more substantial. By discussing unhappiness, unhappiness accumulates. By discussing your worries, your attention is diverted to problems; it becomes concentrated on them. By dwelling on suffering they only intensify, and in turn, they give birth to new sufferings – because you become an expert on whatever you nurture, knowing more and more about it.

Nobody ever talks about happiness! We write it off as unmentionable. As it is, happy moments are anyway so few and far between. But one reason they are so few and far between is that we don’t collect happiness, we collect suffering. Why? Why does man dwell on his sufferings so much? There are reasons for it.

Whenever a person discusses his troubles, it means only one thing, and that is that he is looking for some sympathy, he is looking for love from someone. And he does not talk about his happiness, because no one sympathizes with happiness. People feel jealous of a happy person; they do not love such a person. With this fear in his heart – that people will feel jealous of him – and afraid that no one will be sympathetic towards him, a person dwells on his suffering. Man hungers for sympathy, he craves love.

But remember one thing: the sympathy which is expressed after hearing about someone’s suffering is not love, and the kindness someone shows you after he has heard your troubles only confirms your wretchedness. This way you will go on becoming even more wretched. And if in your life you have cultivated only one interest – gaining sympathy from others – you will even start dwelling on imaginary sufferings, sufferings that have never happened – although slowly but surely you will create a way for them to happen.

Keep this in mind: never discuss your unhappiness. What is the purpose of doing so? By this, I do not mean to say to talk instead about your happiness. I mean to say express your happiness. Release your unhappiness in solitude. Shut the doors, and then cry your heart out, weep as much as you want to, shriek if you have to, but don’t go to someone else and discuss your misery. You do not seek out the other in your happy moments, but you unnecessarily pester him with your miseries, and you make him unhappy too. That’s why, no matter how much sympathy we may show to someone who keeps going on about his troubles, the fact is that we are actually trying to avoid him! We would prefer not to meet him at all because he manages to infect us with his wave of unhappiness. And even if we do lend an ear to his troubles, it is in the hope that he will stop soon, so that we will get a chance to talk about our troubles. In this way, an exchange of miseries goes on.

Just put a full stop to talking about your suffering. Your suffering is your personal affair, it is better that you deal with it by yourself. Now I am not saying you should suppress it. You should definitely express it, but let it be to the empty sky above, where it will not become a burden on anybody’s chest. And don’t ask for sympathy by relating your sufferings. This is being a beggar. Let your misery be released in solitude, let it go.

Whenever someone is with you, let whatever happy memory you have within your surface. Whenever you are with someone, share your happiness, let your happiness sing and dance, and live your happiness – so that at least you reduce the suffering of the other person a little. The more you live this happiness, the more your happiness will increase.

The more you remember your happy moments, the more you will start moving into deeper happiness. Whatever we pay attention to, grows. Attention is a channel for growth.

Osho, The Voice of Silence, Ch 12 (excerpt)

Diet suggestion: Triphala powder


To support that process, take half a teaspoon of Triphala powder (an Ayurvedic remedy that you can find easily online) and mix it with half a glass of boiling water, infuse 10 minutes and drink it warm straight. Taste might be strong ☺. Do that first thing in the morning for a month.

This is balancing the intestines and liver, purify the skin, and you digestion will be cleared. It will help the system find a new balance.

Joke – A Word on Gratitude

There was this world famous painter..

In the prime of her career, she started losing her eyesight. Fearful that she might lose her life as a painter, she went to see the best eye surgeon in the world.

After several weeks of delicate surgery and therapy, her eyesight was restored. The painter was so grateful that she decided to show her gratitude by repainting the doctor's office.

Part of her work included painting a gigantic eye on one wall. When she had finished her work, she held a press conference to unveil her latest work of art: the doctor's office.

During the press conference, one reporter noticed the eye on the wall and asked the doctor, "What was your first reaction upon seeing your newly painted office, especially that large eye on the wall?" To this, the eye doctor responded, "I said to myself 'Thank Heavens I'm not a proctologist.'"

China


Unexpected weather conditions and the constant presence of the full moon during the Mind and Meditation Level 2 module in the mountains at 3500 meters helped us letting go of any expectation in order to be present to the real-time challenge and beauty of the NOW. The students were amazing, their efforts and their Seva matchless. We carry precious memories with us.
