Explanation

(1) Good ideas! How do I do that?! Kundalini Yoga is one of the spiritual disciplines developed by saints and sages to accomplish these goals.

(2) Ego is one of those misunderstood words with many meanings. Defined as our conscious awareness, an ego is necessary to think, operate, make decisions and take action in this world. The problem is that we usually operate from a "limited ego" and narrow view of ourselves and the world. It is this "false ego" that we are trying to give up or transcend.

An important task of our "aware ego" is to train ourselves to listen to our intuition, instead of reacting to random thoughts that are set off by our wounded emotions and inappropriate training. We need our "aware ego" to tune into God (universal energy) and join forces. As we do so, we experience "My will is God's will." And "God in me, me in God are One."

(3) "God" also has so many meanings and is a very misunderstood concept. A spiritual path is about experiencing the reality of this concept. Yogi Bhajan always tells us that our biggest problem is that we think God is outside ourselves. The purpose of a spiritual practice is to experience the Infinite within our own being and to connect our individual psyche with the universal psyche. (one definition of God) (Lesson 20 "Surrender to the Zone" and my book "Love IT with All Your Heart" discuss in detail this concept and how we can cultivate a direct experience of the Infinite.)
