Are you timid about your future? Unlock your mind with 5 dazzling secrets of the Great SadhGuru
Being in this rapidly changing world where every minute a new technology is being invented, a new feature is being added to our mobile phones, a new fad is being adopted, we run the rat race too but what about the inner emotions that we feel?
We aspire to grow and evolve into a human being that people would remember. All of us are in a race to reach those heights, but fear, loneliness, lack of confidence could hinder that pathway.
“Being in competition with the universe is a stupid thing to do”
One day what if the feeling of loneliness, the lack of strength to go through tough times eclipses your life?
At the time of a crisis we feel that the world around us is against us, the universe is playing with us, amusing itself. We think that the cosmic energy is a joke.
As Sadhguru had pointed out we are exactly not alone, the universe doesn’t just limit itself to the people that we mingle or the experiences that we face, the food that we eat, the air that we breathe are all a part of the universe. We transact with the universe every time we breathe, so isn’t the universe being with us at our every step?
Littlest of the little things cause us uneasiness, letting it overshadow us and causing harm to our mental health. What we must remember is that as Sadhguru stated “we are all pop-ups on this planet. We pop in for two seconds and then we pop out”.
Human life is unpredictable, we reach to greater heights or go to the deepest pits and in a minute we could be out! So why not make the most of it?
To be able to visit memories and imagination, this privilege has been blessed upon us. If you are timid about the future as to what will happen, what sort of a twist would happen and you are constantly worried, isn’t that worrying about the events in your imagination?
If you think about the embarrassing moment that had happened in your past isn’t it worrying about the events in your memories?
Ask yourself a question, are you really suffering from the present events?
It has taken millions and millions of year to evolve the brain that we possess now, which has enabled us to think in various dimensions, shouldn’t we celebrate the abilities and privileges that has bestowed upon us?
Next time you think of any uneasiness, think ‘what’s the big deal?’, a moment of uneasiness and it’s gone in the past, it happened a second before, it happened in your memories.
“Whichever way you judge me has absolutely no impact on me”
When we move ahead with our future, we may receive opportunities that we never thought about in our entire life, opportunities related to your passion or interests. But they needn’t have to be what the society approves or your closed ones approve. They might judge you for what you do.
Every day the clothes that we wear, the attitude that we wear, the activities that we do, we are in a loop of fear of what other people might think of us.
Sadhguru has an interesting way to put out fear of judgement, be stoned!
Now it’s not the regular ‘get stoned’ because then you would lose your judgement, awareness and intelligence, he simply means just sitting at a spot being able to feel ecstatic about yourself in bliss.
The privilege of someone else making us making happy or unhappy shouldn’t be given out, it should limit to only and only ourselves.
For instance, your English teacher praised you for your creative skills, you become elated, serotonin flows through your brain and later in the period of mathematics your teacher calls you out on doing a problem wrong, the serotonin flow decreases and you feel unhappy.
Why are we letting other people control how we feel about ourselves.
Our judgment our thinking capabilities are our property.
We could be doing something wrong and the judgement of others could give an insight on how we could change or the wrong path that we have chosen but it would never determine who we are simply based on their judgements.
We are more than a few words. We are more than a few paragraphs, we cant be conjured up in the paper. In a day we make decisions we have never taken in our life, each day the pattern is different and how can a person’s one-day judgement define us.
“Your psychological drama is your drama”
The ability of the brain to generate thoughts whether positive or negative is astounding. When we meditate we try to restrain our brain from thinking, no single thoughts, just pure silence and an empty brain.
As Sadhguru in one of his talks said, have we ever tried to stop the kidney from functioning or the heart or any other organ of the body ?.
Then why do we try to stop the functioning of the brain that is thinking?
The thoughts that occur to us are not intentional, we see, observe and gather information through our senses and the brain stores it and replicates them as thoughts. This could be negative or positive.
These thoughts are not the reality, they occur in your world, in your psychological space. The thoughts that you have are a consequence of what your brain has gathered, what you need to understand is that it’s not exactly ‘you’ who is producing these thoughts.
Your thoughts don’t label you, your thoughts are just thoughts. Whether to dwell in it or not is the question.
Sadhguru mentions that instead of thinking that we are alive and well, we are looming over the thoughts that disturb us which in fact are generated by external factors.
Why isn’t that we are happy that the sun goes up every morning, the planets didn’t crash, the black hole didn’t swallow our entire solar system, an earthquake didn’t happen, why is it that we think of such a microscopical thing compared to the entire universe and we deem it’s a bad day.
“Thoughts are agile”
What should we listen to our head or our heart?
For the future endeavours that we pass through, we may face tough life choices that we have to take, at that moment what do we listen to?
We have conditioned the brain to be practical and the heart to be emotional. All the heart does is pump blood, it doesn’t generate thoughts that could decide how we behave and the vibe that we give off to other people.
As Sadhguru cited we have thoughts that are agile, they travel in different paths, it’s easy to change the direction, it’s easy to turn on every twist, but the emotions that we have, they are a tad bit slow, they take time in investing as well as divesting.
Since our lives are so fickle but at the same time we do value our lives shouldn’t we enact out what we want to be? We have a dream of our future self, whether they are at a materialistic level or otherwise, to achieve that, we need to revaluate what we are currently doing now.
Are we enjoying what we are achieving at the present, does it bring satisfaction to you or your peers or your family? Because after 50 years or so when we look back to our lives we should be proud of fickle lives.
It isn’t a matter of listening to the head or heart, it’s proceeding with the things you like to listen to from yourself predominantly and as an extension from a stranger as well.
“Move from a compulsive state of mind to a conscious state of mind”
There are so many things that we want to attain in life but is it all possible?
Talking about what you want is easy, but the doubt prevails of whether is it conceivable or not, whether you will get to experience the fortune or not?
As long as the doubt prevails you do not trust the universe also you lack in faith. The universe conspires to get you what you want, it may not happen immediately but it would happen if you trust the process.
What seemed impossible has been made possible by human beings and the evidence still lies in front of us vividly. All it took was faith in oneself and no self-doubt.
The question is asked ‘why is the universe against me’? when your face failure. A hundred failures can be considered as a hundred lessons that could be learnt from and better ourselves with it.
Sadhguru on ‘Laws of attraction’ said that it is important to manifest our creative minds for greater goods because even the ugliest creations have been devised by humans that led to self-destruction.
The human mind has evolved recently and since we don’t have a users manual, we still are exploring through the depths of our brain and each day we bring wonder into this world. Once we reach the full capacity of our brain we need to have control over what we create and what we destroy.
Machines and technology meant to make our lives convenient and simple have done harm to nature as well to us.
If we focus our mind in thinking that it is possible to achieve a particular aspect in our life, our body, our energy, our emotions all align to what we have to achieve, the possibility slowly becomes a reality.
