Surfing the Information Superhighway
Yoga for intelligence & clear cognition.
Counter-counter intelligence. In an age of great information & disinformation, you need the intelligence meditation to help you build neural pathways in the brain that are useful in sorting information.
The sheer amount of information that the human brain has to metabolize in one day is the equivalent to 74 G of data. That’s the equivalent of 16 movies & what a well-educated person would have processed in an entire lifetime 500 years ago. (And the number raises 5% every year—Bohn & Short, “Measuring Consumer Information”).
“Attention deficit disorder” developed as a diagnosis in the modern era when attention become the necessary antidote to increasing information due to the rise of technology.
To cope, the human brain develops such practices as as selective attention, so it’s useful to practice slowing down, trying something new, or trying to absorb as much as possible about one particular subject—in a conversation, a lecture, etc. Plus, it’s good to practice taking the same news story & checking lots of variant sources about it—they will all always say vastly different things.
Critical thinking + intuition + attention + empathy = clear-mindedness, or intelligence. For your chi to be moving, you have to circulate. The facts are always beyond language, so people just describe one limb of the elephant, as it were.
You should simplify, streamline & budget your input to what you can handle.

Claiming the New Era
Yoga for positivity.
We have been in the Aquarian Age already for 8 years (since 2012), but we have to claim the new consciousness on the planet for it to succeed.
It’s bigger than all of us & if we do that, we will have an era of peace, prosperity, healing & happiness for all people & all life faster than we can imagine.
This is all arranged for us, we just have to show up & accept our destinies to be in this lucky timestream.
Do the Panj Grainee Kriya every day for 11 minutes to get super high & replenish the pranic force, so needed in this time. All of the yogic pranayams are good for the blood, often aiding the white cells & immunity. Yogi Bhajan said if you can consciously send your white blood cells to the parts of your body that need it, you can heal yourself in no time.
“There is no limit of immunity. Our body has the perfect power to create high frequency protective immunity...That is the best vitamin; that is the best health capsule you can ever take—your own breath of life.” - Yogi Bhajan
True positivity & budgeting your inflow. Leadership moving forward is about who can organize all the mega-information in a constructive way.
Aquarian Consciousness, Power, & Experiential Sensitivity
“Most schooling is training for stupidity & conformity, & that's institutional, but occasionally you get a spark, somebody'll challenge your mind, make you think & so on, & that has a tremendous effect you just reach all sorts of people. Of course if you do it, you may very have problems, you have to tread the narrow line. There are plenty of people who don't want students to think, they're afraid of the crisis of democracy. If people start thinking you get all these problems that I quoted before. They won't have enough humility to submit to a civil rule or they'll start trying to press their demands in the political arena & have ideas of their own, instead of believing what they're told. And privilege & power typically doesn't want that & so they react.” - Noam Chomsky
The Piscean Age is already over but it doesn't realize it's dead yet.
Knowledge comes out of experiential wisdom, so the marker of status in the Piscean Age was if you could comprehend the experience in a lexical way, because that was the signifier you understood what you understand.
Now we're in the Aquarian Age, & all of the Yogi Bhajan teachings are just markers for you to identify the most sensitized places in you because they come out of pure consciousness, & then to move from that caliber. That's the purpose of "learning."
A lot of Hollywood movies are screened & funded by the Pentagon & so forth (Transformers, etc.) to push an agenda of violence onto the public. We would like to deconstruct the global war machine.
Yoga & meditation allows you to have a sorting mechanism for the mega-information.
In the Places & Interspaces
Jung's analysis (like that of all anthropologists, historians, or theologists) of Kundalini Yoga is intensely basic because he didn't actually practice it. He also acknowledges his rudimentary understanding.
That was 100 years ago; we're way past it. We're also living in a post-Jungian age, so be careful of psychoanalytic interpretations of distorted psyches especially if it is distracting you from actually just experiencing a healthy psyche (through practicing). Also keep in mind Yogi Bhajan said mental health is a 100% correlative to physical health (in whatever state or ability your beautiful body is in; i.e. your perfect body's optimization). The "mind" is the body. The "mind" is in the gut (3rd chakra) & the brain is the projector screen, as he put it, of that.
"The purpose of life is to know yourself, then love yourself, then teach others to do the same." - Yogi Bhajan
"So what we take to be the culmination of a long history & a long evolution would really be a nursery, & the great, important things are high above it & still to come." - Carl Jung, The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Reading Room
Keep tight & practice now more than ever.
It’s a very valuable time to get yoga & meditation out to children, because they are the future. Yogi Bhajan said in the 1990s that he was very worried about the coming children, because we really have to make spaces for them that feel safe, sensitive & subtle, because we are responsible for these increasingly very sensitive souls. Early on he said that if we raise the vibration (which people did) enough, we’d have gods & goddesses incarnating from the cusp of the Aquarian Age on.
They (like everyone in a human body) actually need this understanding of how to care for & maintain the human system, & it’s our responsibility to continue keeping up the mission of getting this peace & purity out to all of humankind.
You have to have your own intuition; Yogi Bhajan said it was the purpose of all the sadhana, yoga classes, workshops, camps & trainings. From there you can very easily see what's good & where to go. It should be as clear as daylight what's going on. Then you need strength, forgiveness, endurance & tolerance to just participate, uplift & make things better.
"They have found a secret. They have found a secret to enlarge their halo so their brightness can attract all the opportunities & they can have prosperity...Opportunities will come to you, you don’t have to chase after them. Am I clear?...
Happiness is equal to your endurance with applied intelligence over consciousness. It's a formula. It will never be any other way. H = E + AI/C." - Yogi Bhajan
Windhorse Wave of Love
One of the reasons our kundalini yogic mantras work is that they have been set to a certain vibrational frequency. Affirmations can work but they usually amplify the negative side in your own mind. English mantras like "keep up & you will be kept up!" are wholesome but totally true.
"Cancel culture" is cancelled because it's ineffective and doesn't allow for growth or nuance. Everyone can learn and no one knows everything a priori. Busting through the mind control of social media.
On ley lines, nadis, & earth currents. The more light you're putting into the earth matrix, the more backlash you will get. It's just normal & something you should be aware of. Keep up & understand that everyone else wants the Age of Light as well, they might just have different opinions about how to get there. We want to get to a place as a human consciousness where we can just discuss things without it being a whole drama or debate.
When you die, you have a few seconds where your life is replayed to your own subconscious. And if you by the judge of your own subconscious feel dissonance with what you did, you'll want to come back to reincarnate.
"Never let yourself down, never let down anybody else, & never participate, join or connive in the letdown of anything." - Yogi Bhajan
The amount of opposition you get from the cosmos is directly connected to how much light you're putting onto the planet.
Gaia or the spirit of the earth is attempting to create equilibrium.

Tuning into the energy of the cosmos.
Wormhole Station A
Going into the Solar Eclipse this Saturday, you can come into this portal coming out on the other side next Friday/Saturday (the 25/26th) a completely different person.
We're all a part of the new consciousness coming onto the planet, and that has been coming onto the planet for the last century.
You can take a quantum leap in destiny.
Taking your progress & fulfillment & mission seriously, because we are all parts of the infinite consciousness mandala & important pieces of the puzzle.
Connecting to the lineage dimension to get you through. "Time is the worst teacher." Mentorship is not well-understood & should be used to create sane, logical society.
You really need a strong bullshit detector period.
Logic is interesting because it's foolproof, but a fully accurate proof requires the correct initial input (Western science isn't complete because it only uses specific types of sets of data).

The Process of Self-Healing
Subtle body cleaning through the digestion.
In an industrialized age, we are forcibly inconsiderate of our own bodies, which require attentive care. For example, Yogi Bhajan said Americans have a bad habit of not relieving themselves when they need to, which throws the navel point off in such a way that is very difficult to recover. Or, take his example that repressing a sneeze is dangerous because it is the body trying to bring itself back into alignment by stimulating the vagus nerve. In other cultures a sneeze is storied as the ancestors' blessing, and in the West we have our language. It all comes down to a very natural care & keeping of the human form.
Other random but handy humanology tips include: stopping the flow of urination 5-8 times prevents kidney stones, eating with the hands puts prana from the hands into the food, wearing extra cloth on the navel point (like a cummerbund) keeps it from being thrown off, and rubbing the back of the kidneys prevents adrenal fatigue.
It’s Nice to Be Clean
Cleaning out the inner system with a pre-solstice cleanse starting June 15.
Yogic diets are just fun—think avocado sourdough and date shakes.
Replenishing the ojas with proper nutrition. Ojas is a term in yogic anatomy for a subtle substance associated with vitality, roughly analogous to cerebrospinal fluid.
Sautéed onion, garlic and ginger with every appropriate meal is a simple "oriental" trick everyone can do to all year long to baseline strengthen the nervous system.
Keeping the health together has a lot to do with preserving the glands and the self. You want to have the inner resources before you try to give something to the world.
"You are the few–those fortunate souls who have been persuaded to receive the gift...Joy and happiness will come to them in abundance, who will just do a little seva–a little service–and fortunately you are fortunate enough that your destiny has brought you to live..." - YB
