Should Mothers Work & Pursue Careers?

Excerpt

If there is a financial requirement in the family, women should work and contribute to the needs of the family. However, if the need is because of social compulsions and not financial, then it's not needed that every woman should work. In the last 40-50 years this idea has come, that you are a real woman, only if you earn. This is borrowed from a man's mind and is not needed. Woman should see how to enhance the feminine. Sadhguru shares his experience of his mother, and how she made a difference in his family.

Ranveer Singh – How Do I Get Rid of My Phone Addiction?

Excerpt

Ranveer Singh: Sir, I feel technology is constantly evolving, and I have a feeling that mobile phones have really changed the way we are. They have a huge bearing on pretty much everything. I sometimes wonder whether human beings were ever meant to communicate like this. I could be hanging in a jungle in Africa talking to somebody who is at the North Pole. I can actually see their face! And with that, now comes along social media. It is really changing things. Kids who are eighteen, nineteen now are much more into it. They know how to use these things much better. I was born when there were still landlines, so FaceTime is still a trip for me. So what is your take on mobile phone technology and social media? Is it the new evolution, like this is what human beings were, and now we have a cell phone and that is the extension of us?

What Is The Best Way To Wake Up?

Excerpt

It is very important to wake up to the right kind of sounds. Sadhguru tells us that in many ways, coming awake is like being reborn. So, the context you come out of sleep, will determine about the nature of how your day will go. Sadhguru says - "What kind of sounds you come awake to will determine the context of the day and the future of your life in many ways. Actually, to come awake to silence is the best thing to do, but if you have doubts whether you will come awake or not at the right time, then at least use the right sounds to wake you up – not a ringtone which will just shock you out of sleep. It must slowly bring you out of sleep."

Body needs restfulness and not sleep. When there is residual stress in the physical body, it falls asleep. There is no need to promote sleeping for certain specific amount of time. Sadhguru says - "There is no need to fix how many hours to sleep. When you feel sufficiently relaxed, you must come awake. If the body and mind is kept in a certain level of alertness and awareness, you will see once it is well-rested, it is eager to come to life".

Nag Ashwin – Why More Youth Today Are Consuming Alcohol and Drugs?

Excerpt

The survival needs of people are now taken care of - so, naturally people will look elsewhere for involvement. If they don't find anything, they will move towards more pleasure and more intoxication. Another reason is that children are not getting enough attention because both parents are working. Also, this generation does not believe in 'heaven' - so 'morality' which used to work, will not work now. The solution is, to keep children involved in sports and activities that keep them engaged with nature. They must experience the pleasures of the mind, emotion and consciousness - once that happens, then indulging in pleasures of the body will come down. And children should not know affluence till a certain age.
