Stability in the mind, Sharpness in the intellect, and Softness in the heart 心智的穩定,理智的敏銳,以及心的柔軟

Stability in the mind, Sharpness in the intellect, and Softness in the heart

Sri Sri: You should feel that everyone belongs to you, and you should have patience. You know in a day I have to listen to around 2000 to 3000 questions. Do I listen to them or not? How many every questions are asked, I reply to all of them. And I listen to them with enthusiasm. So stability in the mind, sharpness in the intellect, and softness in the heart, these three things are important in life.
The heart should be soft, the intellect should be sharp and the mind should be pleasant. Never lose these three things. Even if it seems to be lost, just think that it is just hidden somewhere and it has not actually gone away.
Q:When someone hurts us, we get into depression.
Sri Sri: How can others hurt you? Those who hurt others are foolish. Will you blame anyone who is actually foolish or is mentally ill? No, isn’t it?
So, just think that those who hurt you are either foolish or ill. If you think like this, then you will not feel hurt. Okay?
If you think that everyone should act wisely, how is it possible? Everyone has their own little mind, own desires, problems and ignorance. Just accept them.
No one can hurt us until we permit them to do so.
Q: Gurudev, sometimes I am not able to understand the knowledge given by you. What should I do so that I can get both your love and knowledge?
Sri Sri: Whatever you find difficult to understand, it is not to be understood at all. If it is all going above your head, let it go. Take only what you can understand.
See, everyone’s capacity to gain knowledge is different, but to be in love, to be in devotion you don’t need any capability. When it comes to devotion, everyone is same and equally capable. There is no special qualification for it.
Now, when we talk about knowledge, then yes, everyone has a different capacity. Some people have a higher capacity for knowledge and some have a lesser capacity, but this does not make any difference when there is devotion and a feeling of oneness.
Don’t think that only if you are knowledgeable, God become happy with you or become fond of you. It is not like that. The purpose of knowledge is for your own joy.
To purify your intellect, you need Knowledge.
To purify your heart, you need Love.
To purify your karma, you need Seva.
All three should go together.


心智的穩定,理智的敏銳,以及心的柔軟

你應該感到每個人都屬於你,而你需要有耐心。你知道我一天需要聽 2000 至 3000個問題。我有聽那些問題嗎?多少問題被發問,我全都回答了。而我是以熱情聆聽他們。所以心智的穩定,理智的敏銳,以及心的柔軟,這三樣事情在生命裡是很重要的。
心需要柔軟,理智須要敏銳,而心智必須要愉快。永遠別失去這三樣事情。就算它看起來像是不見了,就想像它可能只是藏在某處而它不是真正不見的。
問:當有人傷害了我們,我們陷入了沮喪。
古儒吉:別人如何傷害你?那些傷害你的人是愚蠢的。你會責怪那些愚蠢或是精神有問題的人嗎?不會,對不對?所以,就只是把那些傷害你的人想像成愚蠢或是生病的。如果你這麼想,那麼你就不會覺得受傷。好嗎?如果你想像每個人都應該明智行事,這有可能嗎?每個人都有自個兒的小心智,自己的慾望,問題和無明。就只是去接受他們。
沒有人能傷害我們除非我們允許他們那麼做。
問:古儒吉,有時候我並不明白你給予的知識。我要怎麼做才能得到你給的愛和知識?

古儒吉:任何你覺得很難明白的,那是完全不需要去明白的。
如果那是超越你的頭腦的,就隨它去吧。就只接受那些你能明白的。看,每個人獲得知識的能力都不一 樣;但是要處在愛裡,處在虔誠奉獻裡是不需要任何能力的。當談到虔誠奉獻,每個人都一樣,而能力也一樣。這裡是沒有特別的條件的。
現在,當我們談到知識,那麼是的,每個人有不同的能力。
有些人對知識有比較高的能力而有些人則比較低,但是當有虔誠奉獻和一體感的時候就沒有什麼分別了。
不要以為只有當你是有知識的時候,神才會快樂並喜愛你。不是這樣的。知識的目的是為了你本身的喜悅。

要淨化你的理智,你需要知識。
要淨化你的心,你需要愛。
要淨化你的業力,你需要服務。
這三者需要並行。
