“The love of existence, of our lives, and of our breathing will be in need of the flow of the psyche in us; therefore, we can be a real combination of self within the self. And the sensory system that will develop automatically out of us will be our archangel protecting us and glorifying us. ”
-Yogi Bhajan 8/1/00
The self-sensory system is the next quantum leap in the evolution of humanity. It is like we are all getting upgraded to “first class” to enrich and enliven our spiritual journey. We are shifting from a mental self-awareness system to a self-sensory awareness system.
In the previous evolutionary state, mental awareness gave us the ability to self-reflect. We became aware of ourselves, learned from our mistakes and discovered that we could improve our lives. We could use the mind to make our decisions and make use of skills such as logic, strategy and planning.
Mental self-awareness freed up a lot of energy that was previously focused mainly on survival. With this new system, we could control nature, form tribes, stay in one place and grow crops. This enabled us to pursue art, language, culture, religion, philosophy and science—the bedrock of our modern civilization.
However, at this point in our human history we have taken the mind as far as it can go. In this present age, to use your mind to navigate through life will become more and more dangerous. It's like when you are learning to ride a bicycle and you use training wheels. At some point, the training wheels cease to be a support and eventually become a danger.
Now we are transitioning into a self-sensory awareness system. We are essentially giving the authority of the mind over to the Soul. Yogi Bhajan told us that the “emotions are the sensory system of the soul” (Aquarian Times, Spring 2003). Solar flare activity is like a persistent jack hammer penetrating our aura to awaken our emotional body. The emotions are part of this new awareness system. Emotions become a problem when you are a victim to them—going back and forth like a ping pong ball. Your emotions are here to guide you to make the right choices for you.
To use your emotions in this way you must meditate and use the breath so that you can observe your emotions and not be overwhelmed by them. Your emotions will tell you when something is “off” and not correct for you. For example, you may feel angry in a relationship or a job or by a negative habit that is not correct for you. These emotions are coming from deep within your Self to communicate to you—the self. “Yes, this is correct for my evolution” or “No, this does not serve my evolution.” However, often at first, people are clearing buried emotions from childhood and past lives before their self-sensory system is fully operable.
In the Piscean Age, we have been taught not to trust ourselves and trained to give our power over to an outer authority to tell us what to do. We have also been taught through our conditioning to not trust our feelings—instead to trust our logical, rational mind. Now it is reversing—you can't trust your mind like you used to—however, you can trust your feelings. Your feelings will become more and more intense as we move more fully into the Aquarian Age.
So to shift from mental self-awareness to self-sensory awareness is like the difference between looking at a black and white photograph and watching a technical color, surround sound 3D IMAX movie. The self-sensory system allows you to take in life at a such a rich and deep level. If life is a road, you are able to see miles ahead, see around the corners, see the detours and the dead ends.
The self-sensory awareness system expands outside of the individual self so that you can truly feel, see and know another person as yourself. The self-sensory system will give you a real experience of the Aquarian Sutra, “Recognize the Other Person is You” rather than just a nice belief to follow.
Through this new awareness system you will experience yourself connected not only to every human on the planet but also to the birds and wildlife, the oceans, the trees, to marine life and the planet herself. When you do harm to someone else you will feel that same harm done to you in that moment. When you are kind to another you will feel that same kindness extended to you in that moment. This new self-sensory system will bring us together as One Human Consciousness. This new awareness system will be like our own personal archangel protecting our innocence by communicating to us when something “feels bad,” and exalting us when it “feels right.” Making corrections to our behavior will be effortless.
Imagine the world when this new awareness comes fully online. Imagine who you will become with this new awareness. You will deeply feel and know that other person as yourself. Would you be sensitive, gentle, compassionate, thoughtful, kind, caring and loving towards others? These are all qualities of sainthood. In the Aquarian Age, with this new sensory awareness system, we will live in a world filled with beautiful radiant saints.
