Dear Students and Friends
I will start this post with a quote from one of my favorite artists and I can’t wait to see her live in concert this summer. My husband reminded me of this song he heard while at the gym and I thought gosh I know these lyrics and yes it was Gaga.
Trust is like a mirror, you can fix it if it’s broken, but you can still see the crack in that mother fucker’s reflection.”
― Lady Gaga
This subject is very personal to me on many levels as it is the core of our character development. Clearly how does a person grow in their spiritual journey in life without the basics of love, faith, integrity , honesty, and trust? The answer is simple you just won’t. Sure you may think you are fine but the reality is your just barely getting by in life and eventually you start to fossilize and ferment and for those with bad karmic acts they will reap what they sow eventually never becoming one tenth of whom you were destined to be without those things.
It isn’t rocket science. Love everyone and pray for those that you can’t seem to find love for because they need it more than you know. Tell the truth, treat people as you wish to be treated or better, be upfront and open and most importantly please trust that you are not alone in things of this lifetime even on your worse moment. Here is a great chant “I am at one with the universe and this too shall pass”.
The sad part is many of us suffer with these basics. Some of us even pay professionals to tell us this fact. I’ll save you some money. I find myself struggling with trust issues on and off the mat. Proof being when I went zip lining in Costa Rica I yanked that brake for all it was worth not “trusting” in my guide to slow me down to stop without slamming into the next tree top at 5000′.
So for me it is having to have control and control is merely fictional as any spiritual person knows “we are certainly not in control”.
However, when we study heart opening Kundalini yoga as well as through our mediation and mantras through time with disciplined study we release all of those inadequacies and fears that hold us back as we learn to “trust” in the abundant flow of the universe.
Just hit the mat!
WAHEGURU or Vahiguru also spelt and pronounced Vahguru,
Modern scholars affirm that the name Vahiguru originated with the Gurus, most likely it was first used by the founder of the faith, Guru Nanak, himself. According to this view, Vahiguru is a compound of two words, one from Persian and the other from Sanskrit, joined in a symbiotic relationship to define the indefinable, indescribable Ultimate Reality.
