“Recognize the other person is you.”
Every day, we are moving deeper into the Aquarian Age. With a New Age comes new values and words to live by. While the Piscean Age was ruled by ego, The Age of Aquarius is ruled by the infinite. As we inch closer to the year 2035, we’ll continue to find ways to relate to each other’s souls rather than our personalities. Thankfully, Yogi Bhajan, a Master of Kundalini Yoga gave us The 5 Sutras of the Aquarian Age to do just that.
“Recognize the other person is you”, is the first Sutra Yogi Bhajan gave us. In a world where everything appears separate, it’s important to remember that we’re actually all the same. Even though on the surface we seem to be disconnected, at a soul level, we’re all connected. Each human is a different aspect of a larger whole and we need each other to grow and expand.
It can be difficult to understand why people do things that don’t make sense.You may feel frustrated by another person’s choices and lifestyle. Rather than perceiving them as a threat, realize they are acting as a teacher who is showing you something about yourself. When you reach for the lesson instead of criticism, you can find growth opportunities in even the most challenging circumstances.
This Sutra for the Aquarian Age is incredibly important and enlightening. Return to the words, “Recognize the other person is you” in times of doubt and confusion. You’ll quickly remember that you are not a victim. Rather, you are a co-creator of the life you are living. The characters that surround you were carefully chosen and placed in ways designed to help you grow into the best version of yourself.
