Category: Yogi Bhajan quotes on Relationships

What is the best way you can win the world? Have you seen those books—“Act like this and win friends”? What is that one principle that allows you to win the Universe, the Creator, the creation, the contact, the consent, and everything? What is that practice? Stand before a mirror and smile. Keep on smiling. Even if you want to be dead, even if somebody is mad at you, just keep on smiling. See how fast he attacks you. You think a smile is not a power? It’s the most powerful tool a human has.

Why not play one game to become timeless and one with God? That is the game of how you recognize and love your own deep truth in life. When you can play just one game that is boundless in time and space, then all others stop. The measure of the game is how near you are to your own truth, to the reality in your soul.

Where amalgamation takes place, a new metal comes out of the two. A new ego comes out of the two. A new identity comes of the two. And it is forever; it is not only for today and not tomorrow. Everything can come to an end. Even life can come to an end. But one thing even God cannot end: the desire to be one in each other. This desire even God cannot take away.

Just remember, every soul is a God and every soul is a test for you. Every soul is testing how you’re behaving; how you’re reacting; how you’re projecting; how your aggression and progression is. Are you lying? Are you scared? What’s your relationship?

–Yogi Bhajan, 5/2/90

Why are there quarrels between husband and wife? Because they have never tried to become one. They are still two who are living under one roof. They are still two who are sleeping in one bed. They are still two who are managing one home. They are still two; one is driving the car and one is sitting and sleeping on the side. But they have not yet become one. Marriage is when two become one.

–Yogi Bhajan, 7/7/87
