Q: I want to be ‘Sthita Pragna’ not get drifted by cravings and aversions. What should I do?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
The moment you recognize that there is craving and aversion, I am getting disturbed by it and I don’t want to be disturbed by it, you are already on track. See, when a person wakes up from sleep, only then he realizes, “Oh, I was sleeping!” In the same way, when you remember something, then you realize that you had forgotten. If you don’t remember, then you can’t say that you forgot. And when you remember, your memory is already back.
In the same way, this very intention that I don’t want to be caught up in craving and aversion, you have woken up. Have patience, and don’t be too hard on yourself.<
