What to do in Life 人生要做些什么

Q: I am not sure about what I want to do in life. I want to ask you but I don’t even know what to ask and what exactly I want. I get bored doing anything in very little time. I find myself being very moody. I am not satisfied or happy doing anything. How can I live my life with this kind of mental state?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: You want comfort too much. Get out of your comfort zone. You are only thinking of your comfort and pleasure; that is when you get into this sort of stage or state.

You are here to be useful to somebody else. You are here to do something useful to someone. How can you be bored? Even if you are bored, you have to do that, because what you do is useful to someone else. If you are self-centered, and you think, ‘If I like it only then I will do it’, then that is not seva. That won’t bring you satisfaction. Do you see what I’m saying?


‘I don’t like meeting people’, but you are meeting people for your sake or for their sake? If you are meeting people for their sake, then your life is fulfilling.
You may say, ‘Guruji, you can do this, but what about me? I cannot do this.’ At least do something! You don’t have to do what I am doing; at least do a portion of it, maybe ten percent or five percent. See, I am very free, but yet I am not free. Every day of mine is bound. Do you see what I am saying?
You have all come here to be in satsang with me, I will say, ‘Oh, I don’t feel like being here. I feel moody. I want to go somewhere, to Shawinigan, Trois-Riveres’, and I take a car and just walk away and you are sitting here, waiting for Guruji, where is Guruji?

I don’t want to do this but I am doing it all the 365 days. I am answering the same questions; people are saying, ‘Will you find a husband for me?’ ‘Will you find a wife for me?’ or ‘Get me a job’, or do this, or do that, or take a picture with me, ‘You don’t care for me’, ‘You care for me’; all these stories. Do I feel bored? I have been doing this for 30 years now; more than 30 years, even before The Art of Living too, for 40 years!


I can’t say I want to go somewhere for a ride. So, do something that is good for others. I need so much of your time, your work. Don’t worry about whether you like it or not, just do it and see. Sometimes you don’t like doing things in the beginning, but later on, you will reap the fruit of that action. Any seva you do will always take you up; it will always bring you benefits, beyond your imagination. So don’t underestimate that. Do you see what I am saying?

Otherwise, if you are doing everything to satisfy your own self, you will be bored, because nothing in the world can satisfy you. And you are lucky in a way that you are getting so bored so quickly. You are so lucky; you are the right person as a seeker, you have the right ingredients to grow because you get bored with all these material things. That is good.
One very good thing with the kids these days is that they get bored with everything very soon, but instead of getting frustrated, they should move that whole energy in another direction of evolution, to go higher.


问:我不确定我的人生要做些什么。我想问您,
但我也不清楚自己想要什么,就连要问你都不知道要怎样问。我很快就会对我所做的事情感到厌倦了。我也发现自己非常的情绪化。我做什么都不能得到满足和快乐。以这样的心灵层次,我要怎么样才能活出我的人生呢?
 
古儒吉:你太注重于自身的安逸了。让自己离开自己的舒适区吧!
你只顾着想着自身的安逸和欢愉;这些就是会让你陷入这个处境里的原因。

你来到这里是为了造福别人的。
你来这里是要为别人做些有意义的事情。你怎么会觉得闷呢?就算你是闷了,你还是需要做那些的,因为你所做的一切是为了利益别人的。如果你是自我中心的人,你会想“我喜欢做的时候我才做”,那这就不是Seva(服务)了。这样做的话是不会带给你满足感的。你明白我在说的吗?
 
『我不喜欢面对人群』,但是你是为了他们而见他们还是为了你自己而去见他们呢?如果你是为了他们而去见他们的话,那么你的人生是圆满的。
你可能会说『古儒吉,你才能做到这些,而我呢?我做不到呀!』 至少做些什么吧!你不需要做我所做的一切;但是至少做一部分,可能十巴仙,或是五巴仙。你看,我是很自由的,但是我也是不自由的。我的每一天都是被束缚着的。你看到我要说的是什么吗?

你们来到这了要和我一起唱场,我想说『噢,我不想要在这里。
我的情绪很低落。我想去别的地方,去Shawinigan(沙威尼根,加拿大的瀑布), Trois-Riveres(加拿大的地区)』然后我就搭了车子走掉了。你们全都还坐在这里,等待着古儒吉,古儒吉去了哪里呀?
 
我不想要做这个,但是我365天都在做这个。
我一直回答着同样的问题;人们都说:『您会找个老公给我吗?』,『“你会找个老婆给我吗』或是『为我找份工作吧』,或是做这个,做那个,或是和我照相,『你不关心我』,『你关心我』;都是这些故事在上演着。我觉得闷了吗?我已经做这些事情做了30年了;多过30年了,在《生活的艺术》创办之前就已经开始做了,都40年了!
 
我不能说我想去别的地方走走。所以!做些对别人有用途的事情吧!
我很需要你的时间,你的作业呀!不要去在意你是喜欢或是不喜欢它,做就对了,然后才观察。有些时候你可能在开始的时候不喜欢那样事情,但是在行动过后你会得到它说结的果实的。任何的Seva(服务)都会让你提升的;它往往都是带给你出乎你所能意料的好处的。所以不要小看它。知道我在说什么吗??
 
不然的话,如果你只做能够满足自己的事情,你会很闷的,
因为这个世界上是没有东西可以满足你的。但是这么样容易厌倦的你也是幸运的。你很幸运;因为你是对的寻找者,你有寻找者所具足的条件,因为你对世间物质的东西都容易觉得厌倦。这个很好。现在的孩子都对身边的事情容易觉得厌倦,这也有他们的好处,以其变的烦躁不安,他们应该把这股能量导向可以让他们进化的地方,让他们提升到一个更高尚的地方。
