Tuesday Quote of the Week
These are great! I read them at Joy For Life, and had to share them! Each one could have been used as a nice single weekly quote, but they are better viewed together, as they seem to me to build upon each other.
Yogi Bhajan's 7 Steps to Happiness:
In every life you are meant to commit. 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. Character gives you dignity.
People start trusting you, liking you, respecting you. Dignity will give you divinity.
Divinity is when people have no duality about you. They 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.
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.
~ Yogi Bhajan
