IIn the Piscean Age that we have just left behind, it was a central and even sacred task to find and gain access to the right information. The motto of the Piscean Age was “to be or not to be.” Learn, grow, and become something. Great knowledge about human potential has been guarded by secrecy and layers of initiations. The Piscean Age has been dominated by machines and hierarchies. As the Aquarian Age dawns, the old defenses and manipulations based on hiding and controlling access to information will no longer work.

Looking at the one and only Black Family in Sikh Dharma International after 48 years from my perspective as a person of color I have to ask, why are there so few Blacks, e.g., how many White Sikh Families versus Black Sikh Families after 48 years? Oh sure, there are a few African Americans, but they are disproportionately represented. Think about the optics from the perspective of most people of color. Do people of color see this disparity as a positive or as a negative? And how many Black Kundalini Yoga teachers-trainers are there?

whopping 96% of the essence of our universe lies in the
dark sector...Dark matter is unseen matter -- unseen in
the sense that it emits no detected electromagnetic radiation
(light, radio waves, etc) -- but it has been definitively
spotted nonetheless because its gravity has measurable effects
on stars, things that we can see. Of all of the matter in
the universe, an incredible 90% is dark matter, with galaxies
and stars being only minor constituents. We do not know
what dark matter is, only that it is almost surely made
of kinds of elementary particles unlike those that comprise

Schizophrenia - Do You Hear What I Hear?
Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness;
Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the twenty-sixth day of November next to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our service and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.
And also that we may unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions, to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government as a blessing to all the people by constantly being a government of wise, just and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among us; and, generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.

21 Points To The Good Life
ONE. Give people more than they expect, and do it cheerfully.
TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, those conversational skills will be as important as any other.
THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have, or sleep all you want.
FOUR. When you say, "I love you," mean it.
FIVE. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.
SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.
EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly! No name-calling.
Don't judge people by their relatives.

is not the life that matters, it is the courage you bring

We do wish that the media would get over this craven concentration upon fear, particularly in connection with those people who were not involved in combat but were sitting home worrying. In our opinion, fear is a dirty word and refers to a natural response to life, which, like some other natural responses, should be kept very private. In our youth, the worst thing you could call a playmate was a coward - "scaredy cat" - and no matter how apprehensive you might be in your own mind, you were not permitted to show it, by your father, your mother, nor your playmates. Fear is quite natural, but in any person of consequence it is suppressed. Flaunting it in front of cameras or for reporters is disgusting -- rather comparable to soiling one's underpants. As the old Indian put it, "The first step in a successful life is the conquest of fear. Once that has been achieved, everything else falls into place.

one thing men dread most is death. I have always lived in

to God, there my presence shall always be.

Next fall, when you see geese heading South for the winter...flying along in V formation...you might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly that way:
As each bird flaps its wings, it creates uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in V formation the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.
People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going more quickly and easily because they are traveling on the thrust of one another.
When a goose falls out of formation it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone...and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.
If we have as much sense as a goose we will stay in formation with those who are headed the same way we are.
When the head goose gets tired it rotates back in the wing and another goose flies point.
It is sensible to take turns doing demanding jobs with people or with geese flying South.
Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.
What do we say when we honk from behind?
Finally...and this is important...when a goose gets sick, or it is wounded by gunshots, and falls out of formation, two other geese fall out with that goose and follow it down to lend help and protection. They stay with the fallen goose until it is able to fly, or until it dies; and only then do they launch out on their own, or with another formation to catch up with their group.
we have the sense of a goose we will stand by each other

The most precious thing in the human body is the breath. A meditation which cannot bring normalcy and equilibrium to your breathing is useless, because the rate and length of the breathing will determine the rate of secretion of your glandular system, and that secretion will give you physical stability. Physical stability will then give you mental stability, and mental stability will project the radiance of the spirit, the soul in you. And when the spirit becomes radiant and healthy, you will look spiritual.

How poor can people be?
One day a very wealthy father took his son on a trip to the country for the sole purpose of showing his son how it was to be poor. They spent a few days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.
After their return from the trip, the father asked his son how he liked the trip. "It was great, Dad," the son replied. "Did you see how poor people can be?" the father asked. "Oh Yeah," said the son.
"So what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father. The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.
We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others.
We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them." The boy's father was speechless. Then his son added, "It showed me how poor we are." --
