Yogi Bhajan Quote #418

Anything you subject yourself to will take away your freedom and give you slavery. Then you are not a man, you are a donkey. The question in life is simple: Who rides whom? The question is whether a woman, some children, a girlfriend, a project, or any temptation is powerful enough that you have to subject yourself to it. There are only three permissible subjections of the self. They are subjection to higher consciousness, subjection to intuition, and subjection to God. Any other subjection is not permissible.
