Should I control my excitement?

Transcript

Transcript: I wanted to know basically, how to control excitement? If you could give me an easy or simple way, which I can follow. We can, we can do that if we just have you shot. After that you'll be cold and unexciting. Why do you want to control excitement? I want you to be in a state of excitement all the time. Your problem is, because see, people have been telling you this, if you're too happy, sadness will follow. Do you understand? They've been saying this traditionally. So you're laughing too much, so tomorrow you will cry. This observation has come because you are not functioning from your awareness. You're cyclical in your nature. If you become too much laughing today, tomorrow you will cry because it keeps happening for people. For many people, it's true. For a lot of people it is true. It is from that context, you are saying, don't want excitement because excitement leads to trouble, isn't it? If you can be blissful and always in a state of excitement, is it not nice? I'm always excited about everything. There's nothing that doesn't excite me. That's why I'm asking question to you, Swami ji. So I'm saying, why do you want to kill the excitement? No, you must bring the necessary balance, that excitement doesn't lead to disaster, isn't it? Excitement means life is happening more intensely, isn't it? Always it must be happening at maximum intensity. But now you should create the necessary balance, so that your excitement doesn't lead to disastrous situations within you. So ask for the right thing, you need the necessary balance. Not to kill life. Because if you live life, something may happen. If you live life, something may happen, so the best thing is to fall dead. That's the logic you're going, right now. Is it the answer? No. If you live life, injury may happen, tragedy may happen, so best thing is fall dead right now, so that nothing happens to you. That's definitely 100% insurance, but that's not the way, isn't it? You want to be alive, exuberantly alive, and still maintain the balance. You're half alive and you're peaceful, it doesn't mean anything. You're exuberantly alive and still you're peaceful, this is beautiful. This is fantastic. Or you're exuberant, and once in a while you lose your balance, that's still okay with me. But you're dead and peaceful, it doesn't mean anything to me nor does it mean anything to life, isn't it?
