Your Peace in Your Control | Sadhguru
30 Comments


Why do animals seem more peaceful than human beings? Sadhguru: You cannot be as peaceful as a cow;
try as hard as you want. Yes? Can you? You cannot be. You may manage it for…you eat, they are
not serving today, but I think there’s a restaurant open. You eat lot of pongal; it does usually; You know why people in the South are so peaceful? (Laughter) You eat lot of pongal (Gestures), hmm? Very peaceful (Laughs). It does. So, people have tried. Excessive eating, intoxicants, excessive indulgence in pleasures, with all these things, they have tried to create some kind of peacefulness within themselves. You thought you got there but next moment
you know, you are not there. Any number of times it’s deceived you, isn’t
it? Yes? One Saturday evening, your whole family met;
all of you had a wonderful dinner; you thought this is the height of the world. Everything is so wonderful, magical. Tomorrow morning you see, poof (Gestures)
(Laughs) Not because there is something wrong with your family; It is just that with limited
entity, you are trying to create an unlimited space. It’s not going to work. It’s just not going to work. Nothing wrong, it’s just that it doesn’t work. There’re lots of great things in the world
which don’t work. I am not interested in them, that’s all. You’re interested in great things? Are you interested in great things? Participants: Yes. Sadhguru:Thank you (Few laugh). I’m not interested in great things; I am
only interested in things that work (Laughs). I don’t want to… there’re lots of great
things. People claim there are great things but they
don’t work, they have not worked for anybody. They are great things because somebody says so. They are great things because somebody thinks
too much of himself and whatever he says or does must be great things but they don’t work. We are looking for something that works. If you are determining the course of your
experience right now, hundred percent, you are beginning to you know, the legs are…
bloody legs are aching like crazy but still (Gestures) (Laughter), Tch, It’s
beginning to work (Laughs). If you are determining the nature of your
experience right now, one-hundred percent, let’s say, we assume that, if you are, then
would somebody have to tell you, ‘please create a pleasant experience.’ Hmm? Will somebody have to tell you? No. So somebody telling you ‘be loving, be blissful’
is all bullshit. Yes or no? Participants: Hmmmm (Few laugh). Sadhguru: Because nobody need to tell you
‘be pleasant.’ The problem is you are not able to determine
the nature of your experience, isn’t it? Yes? The problem is you are unable to determine
the nature of your experience for whatever reasons. If you could determine the nature of your
experience, nobody has to tell you ‘be blissful, be loving, be happy, be this.’ This is all coming from, you know, patchy
ideas about life. You see somebody fighting, you say ‘be loving;’
you see somebody unhappy, you say blissful; it’s most insulting (Few laugh). When somebody is in a great state of unhappiness,
going and telling ‘be blissful’ (Few laugh) is most insulting, isn’t it? No? But these are all the great teachings on this
planet which have been on for centuries. These are all great things that have never
worked. So we are only seeing how to determine the
nature of your experience. If you take charge of what causes experience
within you, if you are in-charge of that, I’m hundred percent sure, you will make
it very pleasant for yourself. And I am also sure, if you are feeling very
pleasant within yourself, you would be naturally pleasant to everybody around yourself. Unfortunately, people have taken it upon themselves, to confuse the humanity so badly about their own nature. See it’s very simple, it doesn’t take any
damn scripture or a Guru to tell you this, it’s very simple, whatever the nature of your
experience, it’s happening within you. Is it so? Hmm? You don’t need some great yoga or a scripture
or a Guru or a stone that falls from heaven to tell you this. If the nature of your experience, whatever
is the nature of your experience, whether it’s fear, anger, love, hatred, ecstasy, agony
– everything is happening from within you, it would be very natural for human beings
to look and see how to make it into a most pleasant experience, isn’t it? If you had not freaked them ‘God loves you
from up there,’ if you had not exported love to heaven, lot of human beings would
have been very loving human beings. But now we have exported it out there, you
have to import it, for importing it, you need permit. And there are agents here who don’t give
those permits so easily (Few laugh). It’s not coming across because all the love
has gone to heaven. How to get it now? Here there is a priest standing here with
a permit. He won’t give it to you. Whether you want to experience blissfulness,
whether you want to experience love, whether you want to experience ecstasy – whatever, whatever states of pleasantness human beings have known, have come from within them. Is that so? So there is no need to apply for any permit
from anywhere, you just have to become willing to explore what this (Referring to oneself) is, to bring this to the most pleasant state. Not because it’s a virtue, love is not a virtue,
bliss is not a virtue, to be pleasant is not a virtue – it’s just that, that is the way you long to be, isn’t it? It is not that if you are loving, you’ll
go to heaven; it is not that if you are ecstatic, you’ll go to heaven, it is just that if you are loving and ecstatic, you don’t need a damn heaven. People who’ve made a hell out of themselves,
want to go to heaven. People who have made heaven out of themselves,
where do they want to go? Wherever the hell they go, they don’t care. So, it’s very, very important – if you want
to ensure…is the volume correct? If you want to ensure that the sounds that
this one (ref to audio system) produces is good, The more you know about this whole mechanism,
the better sound you produce. Isn’t it so? Sometimes by chance it may happen, that’s different but the more you know about it, the better. If you are a sound engineer, you produce good sound. So if you are an Inner Engineer, then you make
this (Referring to oneself) the way you want. That’s all it takes. It doesn’t need any… anything (Applause). It is just that because it’s in a different direction, than the way you are constantly looking through your sense perception, you need help maybe, not necessarily but generally yes. You need a certain amount of help but
that’s all. Grace is just that help, that it creates a
conducive atmosphere to slip in. If any machinery has to perform well… you know, people have started using these words everywhere these days, you need lubricants, some lubricant. Try to… whatever the great car you have,
try to run it without oil – not ten minutes; it will be ruined, isn’t it? It’s the lubricant which is keeping it going. All these great machinery without that little
bit of that thin film of lubricant, it’s all destroyed in no time. Grace is just that, that little lubricant
so that things happen smoothly. Now they have started calling it liquid engineering
(Few Laughs). (Laughs) Everybody’s started doing it (Laughs). It’s appropriate, it takes liquid engineer. So this takes little engineering. Grace is just a lubricant, without the lubricant
if you try to work, the friction – just the friction of life has destroyed too many human beings, isn’t it? Yes? Nothing big they did, all they did was simple things. They were born which was not their doing,
they didn’t do such a big thing, that just happened. They just want to eat well, sleep well, fulfill
their basic needs – this is all they want to do. In the process of doing this, how many human
beings are broken and bitter and destroyed because no lubricant, nothing wrong with them. They are trying to work their engines without a lubricant. That’s all it is. Just see even your cell phone is working because through thin air, they are conducting the sound for you, isn’t it? Hmm? We can just disturb that. You know those advertisements, ‘hello, hello,
hello, hello…’ you’re seeing those things? (Few laugh) Phones become like that because there is a
little bit of disturbance. That’s what is happening with this (Referring
to oneself) also. This is a far more sophisticated instrument
than anything that you have seen. This needs a little bit of attention. If you pay attention, it pays off. END

  2. If only everyone knew that all the grief we feel comes from within and we all have the ability to tap into the divine we could all be like Sadhguru.

    And what's that garment he wears over his right shoulder called? His clothes are so dope!

  3. The Lubricant of Life or the elixir of life…. Mmmmm if that could be invented both psychologists (shrinks) and doctors would have more sparetime……..

  4. Thanks for past and present and in advance for the future, Sadhguru,everyone, bhagwan…I do believe and am worthy of triumph.

  5. Peace in the Most discriminative term Propagated worldwide, at-least the term "Hypocrisy" stays true to what it preaches, but the term "peace" Provides a glimpse of a beautiful Future and dark present that live proportionally side by side with with the term "peace" showering it's Font's descriptive Meaning in one part of the world while discriminating by being a jumla in the other part, even the term "discrimination" Embodies it's Specification and features with Utmost Pride without it being Diplomatic in nature, but the term "Peace" provides an uncertain reality because it's a Politician's go to word in case he fucks up.

  6. Thankyou shadguru for reminding us that an ocean of peace and love and bliss exists in us and is us at always now, and we can know it.
