Yogi Ji’s 7 Steps to Happiness
Last week we learnt that joy came from bringing more spirit into our life. We then begin to experience our lives as part of an endless giving cycle. We give to others and the Infinite within us, gives to us. We start to feel no lack, we do not react to fear, we embrace our shadow and our light. Happiness comes from being in the flow of life. Yogi Bhajan taught that there are 7 specific steps to happiness. Each step builds on the next. Happiness is the crowning result of developing our consciousness and increasing the percentage of spirit we feel in our life. When we enter the state of happiness, then we are capable of living for each other.
The 7 steps are: 1. Commitment
In every life you are meant to commit. Commitment needs discipline, decide you will commit to conscious awareness every day. Go to sleep with a dream and wake up with this purpose. That is why the word is commit-meant. Commitment gives you character.
Character is when all your characteristics – all facets, flaws and facts – are under your control. Yin and yang meet there, totally balanced, you accept all of yourself, warts and all. Character gives you dignity.
People start trusting you, liking you, respecting you. Dignity will give you divinity.
Divinity is when people have no duality. You have mastered the up and downs of life and can meet each challenge with the knowledge you can win, because you can trust yourself. Then people trust you right away. They have no fear about you. Divinity gives you grace.
Where there is grace, there is no interference, no gap between two people, no hidden agenda. Grace gives you the power to sacrifice.
Allows you to serve from a place of divine, compassion where you are so full you are overflowing. You can stand in any pain for that person. That sacrifice gives you happiness.
“You should make yourself so happy, that by looking at you, other people become happy. Join us this Sunday to celebrate Yogi Ji’s birthday, with a Kundalini Class and tea party. Please bring a dish. Sat nam x firstname.lastname@example.org 0778011984 www.sanasuma.co.uk www.3ho.org
