In Case of Emergency

Tuning into your soul with regal yoga.

"O what you are talking about Kundalini class is one hour forget they will be new. Come on folks move balance. It is brain being balanced, not the body. Body is a help. Move, move, breath of fire. Hey there is nothing outside of you, it is you & you alone. Disease is you health is you, sex is you, impotency is you, creativity is you destruction is you, mood is you, rude is you, come on. Move, move, move..." - Yogi Bhajan

Rajasic is the royal guna, tamasic is the heavy or dense one & the most animalistic one. The soul has a royal component & so, for example, the food recommended in kundalini yoga is sattvic with a little bit of rajas (onion, garlic, ginger, chili, etc.). That's how we'd like you to be.

Don't worry but do your best to prepare. You just do your absolute best & don't worry about the results! Detachment from the result is an essential yogic quality.

Satisfaction really only comes from knowing you tried your very best.

Yogi Bhajan said of the partition refugee escape he & his family went through that they had nothing to eat but beans, but they weren't suffering. Because suffering is when you lose faith in yourself.

Basically our biggest problem as a world is that women are bitchy to other women, in their own & to other generations. Yogi Bhajan said women are the ones who oppress women & it's true. By the way, the facade of leisure class femininity in antiquity has convinced everyone femininity means weakness, but women are actually 16x stronger than men (according to Yogi Bhajan), & are highly capable at organizing resources & rolling their sleeves up & getting their hands dirty.

Householder preparedness. You want to always be prepared (the Girl Scout motto!) for natural & other disasters. Every household needs emergency supplies (long-term food, water, safety blankets, lots of cash in case electric grids go down, etc.) as well as emergency plans that the whole family is trained on. Everyone should be trained in things like CPR, what to do in emergencies, self-defense, deescalation, how to handle environmental emergencies if driving, etc. & to be prepared materially for them. Hooking into your neighbors & community pods for resources & helping them. We are truly all always in it together. Everyone also needs wills, living wills/advance directives, photocopies of important documents, fire extinguishers, hand-crank AM/FM radios, flashlights, flares/generators/water tanks if possible, etc. You don't need a bunker but put your basement to good use! Get emergency checklists & make sure you're as covered as is reasonable. As yogis, we plug into life & are as prepared for the future in a positive way as possible. You should feel good about taking care of yourself & your family & neighbors & community in this way.

People joke about prepping for "the big one" (as in earthquakes), but you need to be prepared. Red Cross & other organizations have tons of resources for this as an accessible starting point, but there are also great emergency preparedness guides to prepare for more than 72 hours of supplies, which you should do if at all possible. Check your city guides for emergency management guides online, as well. Share your wisdom with your neighbors! It's very important to have savings & stockpiles. And it's very easy to miss essential information, like what can cause poisoning or fire.

You need four layers of protection. One way to look at that could be: personal protection (things you should always have on your body, like pepper spray, whistles, tasers, Swiss army knife, medical ID tags, epipens, etc.), car protection (kits for snow like foil blankets, kitty litter & spare tires), household supplies, & "get out of house" & "get home" bags. Why risk not having things like snow chains or personal/household alarms?

Heavy prayers for the crisis in Texas.

"You cannot create results. You can only create conditions in which something might happen." - Anne Bogart

"We are a feelingless people. If we could really feel, the pain would be so great that we would stop all the suffering. If we could feel that one person every six seconds dies of starvation...we would stop it...If we could really feel it in the bowels, the groin, in the throat, in the breast, we would go into the streets & stop the war, stop slavery, stop the prisons, stop the killing, stop destruction." - Julian Beck

“Anticipating problems & figuring out how to solve them is actually the opposite of worrying: it’s productive...Competence means keeping your head in a crisis, sticking with a task even when it seems hopeless, & improvising good solutions to tough problems when every second counts. It encompasses ingenuity, determination & being prepared for anything...My shorthand for it is 'thinking like an astronaut.'”
― Chris Hadfield, An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth

Amor Destiny

Amor Destiny: love of one’s destiny.

Holding the routine sacred. A daily, householder practice is the highest practice.

You having a steady yoga & meditation practice that you do regularly every day, is the greatest gift you could give yourself for stability & a sense of self-security. It lets you feel normalcy in turbulent times, & shows you how your mind is constantly reacting differently & how that is your mind, not the exercise or your environments. It helps you gradually master yourself, the mind & the exercise.

There's not a lot of gray area between destiny & fate. If you fall from destiny to fate, you're done for & it takes lifetimes to come back, so just practice.

Destiny is about elevation of everyone & putting more positivity & happiness into the world.

"A spiritual guide or a spiritual teacher teaches you to go along with spiritual destiny. Because spiritual destiny is the most productive destiny & it has no beginning & no end...

It is my prayer that when you leave this course this time, your vigor & your dignity may rise enough as you can master your own destiny & that is the purpose of human life...

 There is a fight between destiny & fate, & once you fall in the hand of fate, there is nothing one can do. You are gone forever. What is wrong with fate? Just nothing, you will never ever be satisfied through all cycle of time & space. It is like a cancer, it grows & grows & grows & grows & grows but it won't let you, it is not terminal, that's a tragedy of fate. Fate is endless too. Destiny is Infinity into God, that's why it has a fulfillment...

I don't want anything again, I want to get it together, get it together. Together, to-gather something. I want to get it together, I want to get my senses together & make one sense. Who am I? There are three question which in every religion you'll be asked to answer. Who are you? Where you come from? Where you have to go? That finishes the entire religious study of all religions on the planet. Who are you? I am destiny. Destiny has identity, destiny have path & destiny has a speed...

The human integrity is to have successive stability to do the journey, because fight is always between fate & destiny. Destiny can be achieved only by faith." - Yogi Bhajan
