“The meditative mind makes you a good listener. It allows you to interact. If you get around somebody with a meditative mind, they’ll put you in their state right away. If you find someone who has that characteristic, it’s wonderful to be around that person. You almost don’t even have to say nothing. They’ll take you to that state with them. Their mental/emotional condition spreads out. That’s the idea of cup of prayer. Share this cup, have a drink out of this cup and you’ll be fine.” – “The Ten Light Bodies of Consciousness by Nivair Singh Khalsa
Have a strong neutral mind allows you to intake the information from both the positive and negative minds to make a well grounded and wise decision about whatever is occuring. It evaluates everything from an intuitive and neutral point of view, allowing you to objectively respond from your soul.
In this state of mind you have an expansive point of view that allows you to see more than the micro views of life. This is the ideal state for a yogi (or anyone) to be in.
The neutral mind cannot be swayed. It has made a decision and it knows that the decision is the correct one for itself.
A special attribute with this mind is that when it is strong and balanced, this mind allows you to be “comfortable with the uncomfortable” (Guru Raj in class). It allows you to come into the true reality of the Grace of God. This mind is non-reactive, innocent, calm, stable, observing, and non-attached. It can accept the impermanence of All That Is.
One of the big things about this mind is that when it is active and balanced we are in service to others effortlessly. Have you ever tried to help someone and it just didn’t work? With this mind balanced we find that no matter what we do, we are able to truly help others. It allows us to know when and how to help another person without fault. Our actions are always uplifting the people around us and the environments we are in.
Resources: From my understanding, Yogi Bhajan taught about the ten bodies sporadically over many years of teaching. He didn’t teach a class on the Ten Bodies. Various students of his have collected the information I will be presenting to you here, namely from the The Aquarian Teacher Instructor Manual Level One and The Ten Light Bodies of Consciousness by Nivair Singh Khalsa.
