whole world loves me and I also love this world

Do you know why the earth is shaped like a globe? (Silence)

So you can kick it and it will roll away! (Laughter) From the moment you wake up in the morning you are always with people and your mind is caught up in worldly thoughts. So sometime during the day, sit for a few minutes, get into the cave of your heart, eyes closed, and kick the world away like a ball.

But as soon as you open your eyes, hold onto the ball because you need to kick it again in the next session. (Laughter) During the day be 100 percent attached to the work, don’t try to detach yourself. But when you sit for meditation, then totally detach yourself. Only those who can totally detach can take total responsibility. Eventually you will be able to be both attached and detached simultaneously. Kick the ball and be in the goal! This is the art of living, the skill of living.

Q:  You have said that like rhythm in nature, our thoughts and emotions also have a rhythm. Please explain.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

I want you to take a look at your own emotion and the time scales. See how you felt last year at the same time? What were your feelings and thoughts during Christmas time or Diwali time? Just analyze, you will see that the pattern is happening year after year. This is what I call rhythm.
The objects differ but the pattern remains the same. Last year your were upset about something at the same time. The previous year too you were upset but for something else. So the object of your disturbance and happiness may vary, but your experience remains the same. This is what is called as a pattern.<

Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Where there is a problem, it must be pointed out, but without any hatred in your heart, otherwise the feeling will harm only you.

Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Make your home God’s home and there will be light, love and abundance.

Make your body God’s abode and there will be peace and bliss.

Feel your mind as a toy of God and you’ll watch and enjoy all its games.

See this world as play and as a display of God Himself and you will repose in the Non-Dual Self.

Blessing comes to you in many forms.

  • If you are generous, blessing comes to you as abundance.
  • If you are hardworking, blessing comes to you as happiness.
  • If you are lazy, blessing comes to you as hard work! (Laughter)
  • If you are pleasure loving, blessing comes to you as dispassion.
  • If you are dispassionate, blessing comes to you as knowledge of the Self.

Q:  Gurudev, is it important to meditate? Do all the people who meditate become successful?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Absolutely important to meditate! When you meditate, you have a healthy body and mind, your intellect becomes sharp and memory becomes very strong.

India’s meditation has been taken up by so many universities abroad – Stanford, Oxford, Harvard. Do you know that now they call pulling the ears super brain yoga? When you meditate daily for some time, circulation in the head and the brain improves, and even the grey matter increases. A lot of research has been done recently which states that meditation is very important. Not only does stress get eliminated, but the Intelligence Quotient (IQ) also increases.<

First believe that ‘the whole world loves me and I also love this world’, then you can call yourself a devotee.
