My teacher, Yogi Bhajan, loved Celestial Communication. In honor of his birthday tomorrow, I am posting a lecture he gave about Celestial Communication in 1995. He gave us this gift of Celestial Communication so that we could uplift ourselves, clear our blocks, and overcome our neurosis. He gave us this technology so that we could understand the power of the Word, the Shabd Guru, not just mentally, but also in our bodies. He gave us this technology so that we could easily heal ourselves and become great and prosperous. I am so grateful.
Enjoy this lecture, and Yogi Bhajan's birthday tomorrow!
Celestial Communication is for when you can't take care of your neurosis by any known method. There is no power greater than the power of the Word, and when the Word is performed through the body, the entire being is purified and relaxed.
If you are Christian, you are a Jew, you are a Moslem, you are a Hindu, you are a Sikh, you are a Buddhist, you are nobody, you are everybody -- science is science. Living in the 20th century and seeing people talking to themselves on the road, making a telephone call, drinking a cup of coffee, reading the newspaper, driving the car, and mostly being who they are -- and not being who they are -- something has to be given to mankind to excel, to come out of it without much cost. And that is what we have done.
We have transformed our songs to the strength of the communication of the Celestial Communication Technique, which is ours, which is our gift to the world through us and through our children to follow. It relaxes the brain through the nerve connections of the tips of the fingers, which are the main active parts and ingredients in this being. When the fingers move with the prana to communicate with music, this cantaloupe becomes the human brain and then tension of the neuro-pattern is restored into relaxed patterns of its own originality.
It's a very fantastic release. We practiced Celestial Communication at Khalsa Women’s Training Camp, and this time every woman who went home to the city from the camp could not adjust at home. I understood. I never said that to you, but I knew that when the angels will reach and meet the mortal, it will be impossible to adjust. And I wanted to see that without doing a thing how much we can do and we did it. And we did a wonderful job.
Every human has the capacity of creative self and no person is weak or condemned in the eyes of God. Something, which I actually do not like, is when in my presence people put down other people. Reacting to people is not what you need. Directing people in their essence, and making them understand is a very simple known fact.
Physical relaxation is not as important as the neuro-system relaxation. That is why the Celestial Communication system will work wonders with all people from all religions and from all places. It is a methodology which will give everyone a tremendous amount of relief in their inner being.
Creativity, when combined with physical movement, psychological concentration, and meditation, is very helpful. It balances the human energy and it gives strength to the Radiant Body. This brings prosperity and success. People who against all odds can smile, who against all provocation can peacefully talk, and against all obnoxiousness can beautifully behave, are bound to be very successful. There is no such thing as defeat for them.
The neuro-chemicals in the brain have the capacity to relate and interrelate the strength of these people's own existence. To be temperamental, to call “wolf” all the time, be emotional, be neurotic, be critical, be a slanderer, be a gossip-spreader, and all those kinds of multi-qualities, is very self-destructive. The time has come when we should voluntarily get ourselves out of it. The most beautiful act you can do to yourself is, don't listen to the garbage. Friends bring gifts to each other. They do not bring their own garbage and lay it on floor of the house of a friend. But you are somehow such unfortunates that you have no sensitivity to even understand that your mental garbage is worse than the physical garbage. For physical garbage, a truck will come weekly and take it away. For mental garbage, it is $120 an hour sitting with a psychiatrist and trying to get rid of it. And it still doesn't go.
Let us see how we can project an infinite reality in our own activity. Let us practice Celestial Communication together. Fortunately we have a videotape, and you can all sit before it and correct yourself. We are trying to transform as many musical songs as we have into the very play we want to go through to express. It's like a time capsule: songs and music are like time capsules for coming generations to follow, to read, sing and enjoy.
Let us come to the nitty gritty. Let us come to the root of tension and that is the brain. In ancient time, they used to have the rosary or the mala to go through the japa to reach a point of relaxation. Modern man came out with biofeedback to listen to that electrical sound system. So, we thought, let us get to the point where every human being by their own right can put a tape into the VCR, and on the screen comes these women doing the Celestial Communication Technique. A person, not even fully aware, can just copy the motions. It will do more good than you can even realize, in just a few minutes time.
