In the yogic scriptures it says, “Even a glance from the eyes of a holy man can cure mental and physical imbalances.” Once in a very great while there is a picture that has a transcendent quality of neutrality that allows the person gazing at it to go through it and into their higher consciousness. This is a form of meditation called Tratakum.

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions.”
I was never one to make a list of New Year’s resolutions—but sometimes one is just compelled to; so I would end up generating something like a list. But I would wait until January 6th or 7th, just to take some of the pressure off! In my experience, when I created resolutions that were to begin on the 1st, I had usually broken them by the 3rd—exasperating and not a little self-defeating!
Excerpts from a lecture by Yogi Bhajan on 3/23/90, Los Angeles, California
A teacher is one who guides a person to give the person an experience of his own purity, own piety, own strength, own totality, own identity, own Infinity. And that's your job. I'm just explaining to you what a teacher is. If you do not follow these few rules, you shall be nothing but preachers. You'll have huge congregations, you'll be very charming, you'll have a lot of charisma, and the end result is there will be nothing—no juice. It'll be a very short-lived attitude.

When we are insecure we are afraid. When we are insecure we begin to compromise. When we are insecure we just want to survive. We’re thinking short-term, not long-term. When we are insecure there is no vastness, no connection with divinity nor a feeling of oneness with God or each other.

Our heads are logical and want "proof" about everything, which means they cannot understand anything that is outside of the limits of the mind. Our hearts can understand and intuit what the head does not know, yet our emotional heart can create a ball of confusion that clouds our judgement.
