Sat nam beautiful soul!
As you may or may not know, I recently graduated from my Kundalini Yoga Teachers training program.
As I took my vows to become a Kundalini teacher, I was asked to provide a quote from Yogi Bhajan -- he's that famous dude who brought Kundalini yoga to the western side of the world in 1968.
As I prayed and asked for guidance, I stumbled on THE quote. I'm glad I asked for that guidance, because otherwise I would have missed it! It was quite long and wordy.
It took me a few minutes to process what the quote meant as well. Here it is:
"When we fold our hands, the Hand of God opens. God is everywhere, and you are nowhere. When you know this fact within and without, you don't have to act. Then, all of nature acts for you. When you trust your Creator, the entire creation serves you. " - Yogi Bhajan, August 16, 1995.
Of course I was confused! What do you mean I am nowhere? What is this?
I came back to the quote a few minutes later.
"OH! First, it says God is everywhere." Ok, got it. I know God is everywhere, I know that energy is everywhere, we need prana to breathe and live and cannot live without love.
I am nowhere? I am nowhere. I am nowhere. If I am part of God, and God is everywhere, how come I'm not everywhere?
Because Yogi Bhajan is talking about the ego here. Yes, the part of me which is divine is everywhere. The ego surrenders to become a part of the divine. And thus, the ego is no longer there. The ego no longer exists, and so, the ego is nowhere. Only love, only the divine, is everywhere, and is reflected in all of creation.
Aha! Then! When I act from love, the rest of creation responds to that love. Meaning, I can manifest anything I want.
I love that!
Now I'd love to hear from you. What does this quote mean to you? Let me know in the comments section.
I am truly honored and humbled to be able to offer the teachings of the ancient wisdom of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Thank you for your continued support on this sacred journey!
