FIRST JOURNEY: THE CRYSTALLIZED SELF
The focus of the first journey is to recognize, experience and crystallize the Self. The blocks are encountered in the first four stages: upset, boredom, irritation and frustration. The first ascent starts when we have a sense of our Self, separate from all the commotions, emotions and sensory impulses; we begin to focus and recognize a still point, a nucleus within, which is the Self. It is this crystallized sense of Self that is needed in order for consciousness to work.

“Negative thoughts come at you like arrows. Your strong positive arcline in the aura absorbs the energy of the thought and
moves it spiraling up through the central channel of the spine to create more awareness above. The Jappa of the mantra cuts each thought so its form changes from negative to positive and it can be passed on to the central channel. In this way you are
still, happy and master the upset that comes from the defensive thoughts.” – Yogi Bhajan

SECOND JOURNEY: THE EXPRESSIVE SELF
In this second journey, the initial challenge is to develop a sensitivity to the Self, as we engage in relationships and participate in life. When we take the seed of our Self and our identity and project it into the world, it expands.  In this second journey, we cultivate the meditative skill to merge with our projection yet still be able to distill our Self from the various roles we play; in this way, this second journey prepares us to maintain our integrity in action and ultimately to find the stillness within every action.

“The three gunas, the three forces of nature, are all balanced.
That opens the heart. On that the head is fixed and steady.
You are aware of All and the Crown Chakra shines as the Sixth Chakra commands.”
– Yogi Bhajan

THIRD JOURNEY: THE TRANSCENDENT SELF
In this final journey, we recognize all that we are as the formless presence of the infinite Self. We open the dimension of our Transcendent Self. This journey requires us to go beyond differences and similarities into reality and unity. By forging an elevated identity with our infinite Self within our finite self, we become spontaneous, creative and flexible. We excel in this infinite game of the soul. Love, compassion and kindness become the core of our experience. At the peak of this journey we become the nothing within the center of all that is. Mystery is now mastery. The sacred space opens up to intuitive presence, which serves innocence, loves life, blesses all, and praises the Infinite, the all within All. You become you, nothing more, nothing less. In this final journey, we become realized human beings.

Happy. Full above and below. Heaven and earth mingle in the heart of the sage.
You are balance. Fruition comes to those who encounter you.
Your prayer is reality.“ – Yogi Bhajan
