The Aquarian Age


The Aquarian Age

“The time has come not to search for God, but to be God. Time is not to worship God, but to trust and dwell in the working God." ~Yogi Bhajan

The Aquarian Age is dawning. The final cusp ends on November 11, 2011. There are many dimensions to the radical shift of this Age. People everywhere are talking about it, making predictions or debunking it. Some sense the shift as a cataclysm or end of the world, others as a new beginning, and still others as a time of uncertainty and unpredictability.

We have always experienced change, but rarely with this intensity and speed and never with this scope and vastness. This change is radical, not incremental. It is a simultaneous change in both outer and inner worlds. The mind is changing its sensitivity, its basic frequency and functioning. Our lifestyle is changing its sense of time, space, relatedness, and relevancy.

Five Sutras for the Aquarian Age by Yogi Bhajan:

1. Recognize that the other person is you.
2. There is a way through every block.
3. When the time is on you, start, and the pressure will be off.
4. Understand through compassion or you will misunderstand the times.
5. Vibrate the Cosmos. The Cosmos shall clear the path.


In the Piscean Age that we are leaving behind, it was a central and even sacred task to find and gain access to the right information. The motto of the age was “to be or not to be.” Learn, grow, and become something. Great knowledge about human potential was guarded by secrecy and layers of initiations. The Piscean Age was dominated by machines and hierarchies. As the Aquarian Age dawns, the old defenses and manipulations based on hiding and controlling access to information will no longer work.

The new Aquarian Age is ruled by awareness, information, and energy. In the Aquarian Age there are no secrets! Information is available. Finding it is not the central task any longer. In this Age, the motto is “be to be.” Real value will come from truth embodied in practical actions and in the internal caliber and qualities of your mind and heart. The greatest power will be your Word – your consciously projected words.

“The time has come of self-value. And the question is not: ‘To be or not to be;’ the statement is: ‘To be to be. I am, I am.’ The time has come not to search for God, but to be G.O.D.” ~Yogi Bhajan


  1. Intellect is not enough. We need a new relationship to intuition, emotion, and instinct.
    • Information is not enough. Neither is knowledge. We need wisdom.
    • Learning is not enough. We must learn how to learn.
    • Complexity is increasing as is our need to deal with it.
    • This is an age of paradox – more global and more individual with fewer boundaries and more demand for political separations.
    • Everything is faster and we have less time. We need far more love and unity for we have more fear and tremendous insecurity.
    • We require a reconciliation and integration of the spiritual side of life with the technological and material sides – a spiritual fitness to sense values and meaning.
    • There is no isolation. Each action we take must be considered ecologically and globally because each person does affect, directly or indirectly, vast networks of people and other living beings and places.
    • Change and learning is continuous and life-long. We must maintain mental, emotional, and physical flexibility.
    • Stamina and constant peak performance are the common benchmarks to evaluate all people and their work, and the need is to go inward and regenerate.


We do not need new choices. We are flooded with choices. We need an elevated capacity to make choices. We do not need more information. We need the wisdom to use all the information. We do not need another religion. We need the experience of a dharma that creates the spiritual fitness to act believably on our beliefs.

There is the need for a potent and practical technology to generate the inner energy needed to survive and excel under the pressure of more information, more choices, more contacts, and more complexity. Now the time has come that you will need a meditative mind to wait and see what comes to you.

       Yogi Bhajan about the Aquarian Age:

„In the Aquarian Age, the role of teachers is honesty – nothing

more, nothing less. They will teach others to be

frank, straightforward and honest.“ YB

„In this path of life, you have to call on your impersonal. When you call on your personal self, then “I” has to come through with “my” problems, insecurities, handicaps. But when you call on your impersonal, then you call on your spirit, your Infinity. When you call on your Infinity you can come through anything, you shall never be handicapped. That is how you will enter the Age of Aquarius.“ YB

„Take the teachings of the Age of Aquarius seriously and

do not pollute them by mixing them with Piscean

teachings – that is the only danger there is.“ YB

„Here are the common features of the Age of Aquarius:

In their hearts, people will understand what is going on. They may not find words to express themselves, but one day they will. That day they will like to uplift fellow beings. The walls of hatred will fall down. Instead of ill will and gossip, there will be prayer on the tongues of everyone. Rather than competing for wealth, people will compete for spiritual growth. We will have a common belief of higher self, love 

for our Creator, and love for our consciousness and grace.“ YB

„In essence you are truth. In realization, you lack faith. This lack of faith creates a gap, and sometimes you question, you do not have the nerves to take it. That is why the Age of Aquarius, the age of knowledge and faith and trust, shall only belong to those who shall keep up.“ YB

„[The Age of Aquarius] will be an age of humans and peace, love and service and we shall all be relatives. The small wars and fights will go. Humanity will prevail again. As the Berlin wall fell, other walls will fall. We will all be united under One God. One Spirit. One Self. ”YB
