The Mind Matters 心智的事项

The Mind Matters 

October 24, 2012 十月24日

Bangalore, India 

1777
You know, at all cost, you should save your mind.
What happens is that you are in a happy mood, in a joyful mood, and somebody comes and tells you something in your ears which you don’t like.
They say, ‘So and so said this about you’, and they subtly criticize you saying, ‘What are you doing? This is no good’, and suddenly your whole mind starts revolving and you don’t feel good. You start getting very disturbed.
So how does all this happen? Somebody puts some negativity. This is very common.
You will find in your day to day life that people will come and put some negativity that makes your mind, your determination, shaky. Don’t let this happen.
 
 


 
 
It is natural and common that people will put some negativity, but when you are deeply connected inside, when you have that intuition, you will just smile through them all. You will put a filter into your ears.
You know that is how the world is. You know that there are some pleasant and some unpleasant things. How we manage them and keep our direction, that is what is most important.
All the sadhana and the Yagnas that we did in these nine days, and all these celebrations help you come back to your original level of enthusiasm and energy. So, keep your heart strong and your mind sharp, and the vehicle of life will run very smoothly.
Leave the small things and think big. Think what can we do for society, for the country, for the world. In this way, you must have a big goal in life.

People usually ask for small little things.
People say, ‘Gurudev, send us a car, we are not getting a taxi.’
They keep asking for these little things. That is also okay. There is no harm in asking for such things, but think of something big.
That is why, in our Indian culture, for thousands of years, people have been saying, ‘Sukhi base sansaar sab dukhiya rahe na koye', (May everyone be happy, may nobody stay unhappy).
We say the same thing when we pray as well, ‘Loka Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu’, (May the whole world be happy).
Not only this world, but those who reside in the subtle worlds as well, our ancestors, may they also be happy. This is what we hope for.

What is important is that you must remain contented.
You must keep evaluating yourself from time to time. Ask yourself, whether what I am doing is benefitting others or not.
Even if something brings pain in the short run, but in the long run it is beneficial to everyone then that is the right thing to do.
This is the test.
Before doing any work, you must ask yourself, ‘Am I only focusing on the small things or am I thinking from a broad perspective?’ This is essential.
So, broadening your vision is essential. When the vision is narrow, that is when our decisions go wrong. But when we have a broad vision, a long-term vision, then an intuitive awareness starts developing in us.

Today is the day of Victory; the victory of good over evil. It is a good day to start thinking afresh.
Ask yourself, ’Okay, what do I want to do now?’
Have one goal for yourself and one goal for the world, and if both become the same then that is the best.
If it is not the same, then also it is okay, you can have both but see that they don’t conflict each other.
First is the vision for the society, for the world, for the people and then whatever is your desire, your wishes, will obviously get fulfilled. Isn’t that already happening? How many of you have this experience that whatever you ask for you get? (Many in the audience raise their hands).
This is how it is for a saadhak (seeker). It is said, 'Pratyavayo na vidyate', once you have found the path, then there are no obstacles on it. Then, whatever sankalpa (vow) you take, whatever you think, effortlessly starts happening.
This month that has passed, Ashwin Maas (month of Ashwin) is a very important month. Why? Because fifteen days were dedicated in the memory of our ancestors who passed away and the remaining fifteen days are spent worshiping the Gods and conversing with them. That is why it is a very important month, and till the full moon night the celebrations will continue.
But for us, every day is a celebration, isn’t it? There is celebration everywhere. Yet, this month is a little special.



心智的事项

印度,班格洛


你应该要不惜任何代价的照顾好你的心智。
当你处在愉快的心情,在开心的时候,突然有人来到你的耳边告诉你一些你不喜欢的事情,那会是什么样的情况?
他们说『某某人是这么说你的』,然后他们开始批评你说『你这是在做什么?这是不好的!』然后你的心智就开始旋转,而你也觉得不好受。你开始觉得非常的困扰。
这些到底是怎么发生的?有人放了些负面的东西进去。这是很平常的。
你会发现每一天当中有些人来到,然后就放了些负面的东西让你的心智,决心动摇。不要让这些发生。

一些人来,放了些负面的,这些都是自然和普遍的;但是只要你的内在是连接着的,当你有那个直觉的时候,你就会用微笑去面对这些。你会在你的耳朵装上过滤器。
你可知道,这世界就是这样的。你知道外面有让人愉快或让人不愉快的事情。最重要的是我们要怎么样去处理他们,同时也保持我们自己的方向。
我们这九天所做的sadhanaYagnas(灵性修持)和庆典都是可以帮助你回到原来的热忱和能量。所以保持一颗勇敢的心,和清晰的心智,好让整个生命运走得更顺利。
把那些小事都放下,去想那些大的。去想想你要为社会,为国家,为世界做些什么。那么一来你的人生一定要有更大的目标。

人通常都在要求些很小的事情。
他们说『古儒吉,给我们派辆车吧,我们接不到德士。』
他们每每都只是要求这些小样的。这些都还好。要求这些是没有错,但是去想想那些更大的吧。
这就是为什么在印度,几千年来,人们都说『Sukhi base sansaar sab dukhiya rahe na koye』(意思是:愿所有人都快乐,愿没有人处在不快乐当中)
我们在祷告的时候也是说了相似的祷告词『Loka Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu』(意思是:让全世界都快乐)。
不只是这个世界而已,还有那些居住在那些微妙世界里的,比如说我们的祖先;愿他们都快乐。这是我们所希望的。

最重要的是你要保持知足。
你们时不时都需要评估你们自己。问你自己,我正在做的这一些对别人有没有让他人受益。
有些东西在短时间内可能是带给你痛苦的,但是长远来看那是对大家都好的;那么这就是正确的事情。这是个考验。
在你做任何工作之前,你一定要问自己『我只是专注在那些小细节,还是我有看到更宽阔的角度吗?』这是有必要的。
所以你是有必要去增广你的视野的。当我们的眼光是狭窄的时候,我们的决定往往都会有错误。但是如果我们有广阔的视野,一个长远的眼光,我们意识的直觉性就开始在我们的内在成长了。


今天是胜利的一天,善良战胜邪恶的胜利。这是让我们可以开始重新思考的好天。
问自己『好吧,现在我要做些什么呢?』
设定一个目标给自己,也设立一个目标给世界;如果两者间是相同的,那是最好的。
如果不相同也没有关系,你两个都可以保留,但是需要确保那两者之间并没有冲突。
首先是对整个社会的愿景,再来是世界的,全人类的,然后是你的愿望,你所想要的都会很明显的被完成。这些都有在发生了对吗?你所要求的你都会得到,有多少人有经历过着一些?(很多听众都举手)Saadhak (寻找者) 就是这么一回事。有句话说到『Pratyavayo na vidyate』,只要你找到了那条道路,那么这一路上都不会有障碍。在那之后,你所有的sankalpa (你所发的愿),你所想的,轻而易举的就可以实现。

这个月过去了, Ashwin Maas 是一个非常重要的月份。为什么呢?
因为这十五天我们把它用来奉献给我们已过世的祖先,接下来的十五天我们则用来崇拜神明并与祂们对话。所以这是个重要的月份,这个庆典会持续到月圆之日。但是对我们来说每一天都是庆典对吗?到处都是庆典,但是这个月比较特别一些。
