Time and mind are connected 时间和心智的关连

Time and mind are connected

Q: Guruji, is there any connection with the mood and the timing of the day? Why do we feel different at different times, like one feels low in night time.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: 
Ya, ya! Time and mind are connected.You should know this. Time and mind are synonymous. There are eight substances:Vaisheshika, Kanada…all these people have said, ‘Desha, Kala, Manah.’ Desha is space, Kala is time and, Manah - the mind.They are all tatvas, principles. And all these principles are connected. Desha and kala are connected. Space and time are connected. One day on this planet Earth is already many days on another planet. In moon, it is different. So, if you are on Jupiter, one human year is only one month. In Jupiter if you have to experience one year, that is 12 years of earthly time.Jupiter takes 12 years to go around the sun. Similarly if you are on the planet Saturn, 30 years is one year!

Similarly, pitras, people who have died, our human one year is one day for them. So our six months is only one night and six months is one day. So, for a soul which has departed our whole year is one day. There are different times and different space in different dimensions. So, time and space are connected. It’s called the time-space curve. The same with the third dimension that is mind! The mindless, transcendental consciousness is called Mahakala, the Shiva, the fourth state of consciousness. It’s called Mahakala, means great time, and the no-mind. Then o mind is great time.

So, morning from 4.30 to 6.30, just before sunrise, before dawn, it’s called the most creative time. Brahma muhurta! And then, every two hours it’s called a lagna; which means, one unit of time. And this unit of time corresponds to the state of mind. And again this is connected with the moon’s position, the sun’s position. There are so many aspects! Ten different aspects influence the mind. So, not only the time or hour of the day affects the mind, also the quality of the days affects the mind. Every two and a half days, the mind changes! The mood of the mind! So, if you are upset, it can continue for two and a half days at maximum; it doesn’t have to be two and a half day. It rises to a peak and drops. But after two and a half days, you cannot have the same emotion with the same intensity. Impossible! It changes. Switches! It is a great, great science, how mind, mood and time are connected. ‘Jyotish shastra’ has a lot of insight into this. You know the astrologers, usually, all these weekly column astrologers say, ‘Oh, good for relationships, good for making money, this and that!’ They write those things. They generalize those things, ‘If you are born on this time then this is good for you and you do this.’ Of course, it’s too generic and it’s just a money-making thing that they do. But it is not hoax; there is an iota of truth in it. The underlying base has truth. The principle that the mind and time are connected is correct.

Mind means moods, thoughts, opinions, ideas, all these things that we collect. And, no mind is meditation. Dawn and dusk are considered very good for mediation. So, whenever you meditate, or whenever the bad time is there, you meditate. When you meditate you go off the influence of the mind and go into the self. The self is Shiva tatva. Shiva tatva means, always benevolent, caring, loving,uplifing. That consciousness deep within you which is caring, loving, uplifting and benevolent, will nullify the negative influences of the mind and the time.

So, in India it is a very common belief, whenever there is bad time just say, Om Namah Shivaye, and it’s gone. All that bad time is gone. ‘Manah’, when read from the other side, it becomes Namah. Manah is when consciousness goes outside in the world, and Namah is when the consciousness goes inward. Shivaye, towards the Shiva principle, the fourth state of consciousness, the subtlest aspect of the existence, the Shiva tatva! So, Namah, when the mind goes towards the basic substratum of creation, then it can change all that into more benevolent experience.
时间和心智的关连

问:古儒吉,情绪和一天当中的时段有关连性吗?
为什么在不同的时间我们有不同的感受,就比如说人在晚上的时候感觉比较低落。
 
古儒吉: 是的,时间和心智是连接的。你是应该要知道这一点。时间和心智是同义的。在八个派里:胜论派,卡纳达等,这些人说过德莎(Desha卡拉(Kala),迈奈赫Manah德莎(Desha)是空间,卡拉(Kala)是时间,迈奈赫Manah是心智。这些都是Tatvas, 原理。而这些原理都是互相连接的。Desha 和 Kala 是连接的。空间和时间是连接的。
在地球上的一天是别的星球的很多天了。在月球,又是另外一回事。所以如果你是在木星,人类的一年只是那里的一个月而已。如果你在木星呆了一年,那就是地球上的十二年了。木星需要12年来围绕太阳。相同的如果你去土星,30年才是地球的一年!
 
相同的,那些死去的人们(Pitras),我们人类的一年只是他们的一天。所以我们的六个月是他们的一个晚上,再多个六个月是他们的一个白天。所以对那些离开了我们一年的灵魂,在他们那里也只是一天而已。在不同的次元里有不同的空间和时间。所以时间和空间是连接的。这叫做时间-空间的曲线。同样的第三个次元就是我们的心智!无意识的,超然的意识叫做玛哈嘎拉(Mahakala),湿婆Shiva),第四个境界的意识。它被称为Mahakala,意思是极大的时间,就是无意识。无意识就是极大的时间。

早上 4.30 至 6.30 的时段,在太阳升起前,黎明前,这段时间是最有创意的时间。Brahma muhurta!(被称为楚时或是“神圣的时刻”)接下来的每两
个小时称之为 lagna, 意思是一个单位的时间。这个单位的时间就会对应意识的状态。这也是和月亮的位置,太阳的位置有关连的。这里边有很多的方位。有十个不同的方位影响着心智。所以不只是时间,或是一天里的几个时段会影响心智,每一天的品质也会影响心智。每个两天半,心智就会改变。心智的情绪!如果你在忧伤,那最多也只有维持两天半而已;也不需要到两天半的时间。它会升到最高峰然后就跌下来了。但是过了两天半后,你就不会处在同样烈度的情绪里了。这是不可能的!它会改变。交替着!关于这些心智,心情和时间的连接性是门很大,很大的科学。‘Jyotish shastra’ (星相学家)在这一方面有很多的见解。你知道这些星相学家,通常他们会在每周专栏里写道“对感情关系好,对财运好,这些那些的!”。他们都写这一些。他们把这些东西归纳起来 “如果你是在这个时间出生对你好,你适合做这个。” 当然这是太普遍了而且也是被当做是攒钱的门路而已。但是这并不是恶作剧;这里边有丝毫的准确性。他们有着相关的基本真理为基础。心智和时间有关连的原理是正确的。
 
意识是由心情,思想,想法,意见等集合的。没有意识就是静心。黎明和黄昏都是适合静心的时候。所以每当你静心或是当有不好的事情发生的时候,你就静心吧。当你静心的时候,你会除去那些影响心智的东西然后进入本我里。本我就是Shiva tatva,意思是时时都保持仁慈,关怀,有爱心和向上的。
 
在意识的深层里有着是关怀,爱心,向上和仁慈的,这些都会终止心智和时间的负面影响。
在印度有个非常普遍的信念,就是处境不好的时候唱诵“Om Namah Shivaye”, 然后这些负面的都会离开。所有的不好的时光都会离去。“Manah”当我们倒回来读的时候就成了“Namah”。Manah 的意思是当意识到外面的世界去的时候,而Namah 就是意识向内去。Shivaye,迈向Shiva(湿婆)的原理,第四个层面的意识,最微妙层面的存在,就是 Shiva tatva! 所以 Namah 当心智迈向创造界最基础的层面,它就会把一切转变成更唯善的经验。
