Why Would You Want Anything Else?

Yogi Bhajan used to hammer into us that Character (or as he used to pronounce it—“correct-er”) is the most important value that we should strive for as a human and as a spiritual Being.
Over the years, I have seen that integrity is the foundation of character. That is not just that we do what we say we will do; or that we tell the truth; or that we actually have the courage to stand for what we believe in, no matter the consequences; or that we actually pay taxes on our cash earnings; and so on.
Integrity is more like what Carlos Castaneda called “impeccable.”
It is our clarified energetic foundation that allows us to receive, integrate and express the greatness that emanates from our Souls right here in our everyday lives. Ideally, this is the non-collapsible, flawless mechanism that can deliver Soul through our thoughts and actions. But if we give into old habits that sidetrack us from listening to our Souls, no way we can hold our function as full “spiritual beings.” Habits such as addictions, anger, gossip, put-downs of ourselves and others, and so on.
For instance, if I am angry and blame my anger on another person or situation, rather than taking responsibility for healing my own run-away emotion, then I shut off my own consciousness, my energetic foundation that I need to engage my Soul so that I can fully understand the extraordinary breadth and depth of what my Soul, my God-Self is offering to show me in that moment! I am lacking in integrity. I have rips and tears in my operating mechanism.
If I can’t muster the patience to relax into my Soul so that I can listen closely to someone that I disagree with, that cuts my ability to get the huge picture from my Soul, and cuts my heart from flowing. I don’t have the integrity, the character it takes to activate my God-given grace and wisdom. I can’t bring my Infinite experience to the mundane.
Integrity indicates just One fully flowing, interconnected, seamless mechanism without those “little bugs” that throw us off track and create big train wrecks, especially when we are moving at the greatly increased speeds of the Aquarian Age.
In 17th century India, Guru Gobind Singh led a comparatively small band against the impossibly huge Mogul aggression that sought to destroy anyone who would not convert to their religion. He trained his army to not engage in anger or fear or defeat, but to live entirely in the purely alive moment—in the will of the Creator, in the full experience of their Souls! They lived in the ecstasy of the moment, which is totally and purely living the Consciousness of their own Soul!
Too big a concept for us nowadays, you say? Well, how about these recent reports?
“So I'm sitting in a meeting this morning, and I was getting ticked off, everyday-self getting all itchy, and then I had an insight that Baba Siri Chand was sitting at the meeting table, and it was so funny and reminded me not to take it so seriously and that everything is a learning experience, an opportunity to participate with my soul and not siphon it off for just meditating. I just started grinning and laughing inside thinking of him sitting at the table. And it helped in some other meeting I had today too.” Kehar Kaur, Alexandria, VA
And this one:
“Baba Siri Chand asked me to promise him when I am getting in a funky space to do a happy dance with him. Just to let you know, funky space was happening big time the night before and a little on that day. The thought crossed my mind to give up. I was feeling very pulverized in my body at the time. Giving up does not work nor is it an option. It did not work when I tried it before and will not work now. I have work to do. That is why I am in physical form now--why I agreed to whatever I did at soul level before I was born in this lifetime. I do the happy dance with him. In public view, sometimes it just looks like I am jumping up and down. The blood flowing and chemicals released during that is awesome. Movement of my body helps clears toxins accumulated in my body from my thoughts, food, actions and poor habits, etc. It is all good. I am just starting to get it. We all receive so much guidance and love. I had to learn to believe that I am truly this immense beautiful being of golden light and love. It sure helped me when BSC showed me. So very cool how we are all pieces of the same big puzzle and how working together, everyone can create such wonderful beautiful things. It just takes coming from the heart and not the limited filtering of our everyday self. There is no power greater than unconditional love which to me is this golden light.” Atma Karam Kaur, Norfolk, VA
So, Dear Ones, integrity is the ability to hold and express the Consciousness that seeks to flow through us all the time! It takes attention, personal responsibility, commitment, and plain hard work with unbounded relaxation to develop it. But why would you want anything else for yourself?
