Does Astrology Work?
Transcript: Astrology. What is it that you're trying to do? You're trying to look at the positions of the planet and make certain predictions, right? I want you to understand. Most of the time, people who make good predictions, or people who, you know, tell you about the past very clearly, or some people tell you tomorrow what's going to happen very clearly, they're not doing it looking at the planets. They're doing it looking at you. A certain intuitiveness is there in a certain person. He says. You know instead of teaching this yoga, if I sit and Chennai and just predict people's future, I will tell you in the next 10 years exactly what will happen in your life. Within 3 days, I will have a reputation and half the Chennai will be standing in queue. Very easily I can do that. By predicting somebody's future, you don't alter the quality of his life in any way. You don't bring any kind of true well-being. It is just, you know, you're getting him into more and more ignorance. Isn't it? Now if you have the power to know your tomorrow, you will only become more ignorant, more egoistic, more stupid, more harmful. You go by the normal rules. It's okay, you don't have to know what's tomorrow. You're made like this right now, the quality of your life and your own way of being as such, if you know tomorrow today, you will not participate in today. Isn't it? Yes or no? Suppose I tell you, whatever you do, you're not going to die. You will do irresponsible things in the world. Or if I tell you, tomorrow morning anyway you will die. Now you won't participate in today. Isn't it? So, you should not know the future. It's not necessary for you to know the future. The planets definitely are large objects, so they have certain vibrations, they have some influences on everything around them. If they're close to this planet, yes. Do you know, on poornami and amavasya days, full moon day and new moon day days, people who are little mentally disturbed, or imbalanced, become much more imbalanced. Yes? Even the ocean is going crazy, isn't it? Do you all go crazy? Twice a month? If you're much more established, wherever any planet goes , you don't go crazy. That's all. The purpose of your life, the destiny of your life, is fixed by you. And nothing else but you. Yes, everything has an influence but what you make out of that influence is still yours, isn't it? But if you're going to be pushed around by inanimate objects, yes you can be pushed around. To that extent it is true. I'm saying, when the divine is functioning within you, when the creator is functioning within you, why are you allowing inanimate things to influence your life? If you allow this dimension to flower in you, you will see life happens fantastic. Let the stars go anywhere, let the planets go anywhere, you will go only where you want to go. You want to go where you want to go? Or you want to be pushed around by inanimate objects? You must decide that.
