Have You Lost Your Mind _ Sadhguru – Transcript
(Sadhguru): So I was in America and you know some people they have a big problem with the word Guru – it’s a four-letter word you know (Laughter). They don’t mind the other four letter words (Laughter). This four letter word is a Guru why are you a Guru? This is what a lady asked me ‘Why are you a guru’ (Laughter)? Oh (Laughs)! Because you are in a state right now you don’t see what’s around you only when your eyes are open. Even with your eyes closed imagery is going on isn’t it? You must understand the function of the eyelid is if you close it world is out that’s the purpose. Yes or no? Participants: Yes. Sadhguru: The function of the eyelid is see the camera has a camera cap if you put the cap world is out for the camera yes? That is what an eyelid is it’s like a camera lens cap If you put the cap if you still see you lost it (Laughter). Yes or no? If you put the cap and you still see it you definitely lost it. Or in other words the fundamental faculties of your mind which is memory and imagination – both are out of control. You don’t know how to make use of your memory you do not know how make of make use of your imagination. You suffering yesterday and tomorrow is just this – you lost control over your memory and imagination. If you had control over your memory and imagination I would treat you as my colleague tch. But now you lost control over your memory and imagination essentially means you should have been in an asylum. Because there is not enough infrastructure (Laughter) instead being in a mental asylum you’re in Mumbai (Laughter). Yes! You lost control over your memory and imagination means you have no ability to make use of the faculty of the mind in the way you could if you had control over these two things. Something is happening your idea of success is you made a living tch. Okay. You made a living little better than your neightbor your neighbor has a Maruti you have a Mercedes this is your great success. Suppose tomorrow we distribute Mercedes to everybody (Laughter) you wouldn’t want to get into it yes? So you have no appreciation of the technology of Mercedes your only thing is See because I was (Laughs) I was in conversation with Ratan Tata who is into auto industry – more than the industry he is a passionate auto person okay? So once we sat together we were not talking spirituality or business we were talking only cars and you know machines. So when we looking at these things see the thing is just this if you look at the advertisements in the newspapers for cars I look ‘Okay any new model’ I’m looking it up I’m not intending to buy it but I am interested to know what is coming what is going. I look at it they say leather seats you know wood-finish in the this thing paint job like this – I’m looking what’s the engine what’s the transmission what is the gearing system what’s the gear issue I want to know – nothing. Only leather paint work stereo system (Laughter) – goddammit this is not what a makes a car this is a living room (Applause). A car means what’s the engine what’s it’s torque what’s it’s BHP what is the transmission what is the gearing how does it behave what does it do? No no it’s about the paint work because the car is about how shiny it is and how it blinds your neighbor (Laughter) you know unfortunate So because you’ve made your life this way that the quality of your life is determined by the opinion of your neighbor – whether the neighbor is next door or somewhere else – somebody else somebody else’s opinion determines the nature of your life because eyes open and eyes closed you are still seeing the same world. You have to at least come earn this much in your life if you put the lens caps it should be over yes? You should not see anything – if you see things that means you lost it. Don’t think you’ve become spiritual. ‘No Sadhguru when I close my eyes I see Shiva’ you definitely lost it (Laughter). You’re not just a nut you’re a religious nut. (Laughter)
