Transcript

Transcript: If you are given a choice, that you can either live joyfully, blissfully, or miserably, or in anger, or in stress, or in resentment. What is your natural choice? You must choose, I'm going to bless you right now. What is your natural choice? Joyfully, isn't it? Because every human being is looking for highest level of pleasantness for himself or herself. You can call it joy, you can call it bliss, these are just words. Essentially, we want highest level of pleasantness for ourselves. If your body becomes pleasant, we call this health. If it becomes very pleasant, we call this pleasure. If your mind becomes pleasant, we call this peace. If it becomes very pleasant, we call this joy. If your emotions become pleasant, we call this love. If it becomes very pleasant, we call it compassion. If your very life energies become pleasant, we call this bliss. If it becomes very pleasant, we call it ecstasy. If your surroundings become pleasant, we call this success. Only to make your surroundings pleasant, you need the cooperation of all these people. Because, in creating an external situation, there are many forces involved. Not all of them, you even know. You understand? So right now, you know well that you want to be peaceful. But, somebody else is doing something, what are they doing? They know what they know best. They're abusing you. Why are they doing it? Because that's all they know. Yes or no? That is what, that is how they know their life, that's why they're doing it. If you become resentful, and you think something will happen to them. See, these are things, anger, resentment, hatred, these are all poisons that you drink and you expect somebody else to die. No life doesn't work like that. You drink poison, you die. It's a very fair life. If you drink poison, you die. Very fair, isn't it so? I drink poison, and you die. Is it fair? So, people who are in anger, resentment, hatred, this is their thing. They are drinking poison. When I say poison, I'm not saying in a moral sense. There is substantial medical evidence right now, that we can show you with a blood test, that 5 minutes before you take your blood test right now. 5 minutes you may remain in extreme anger and take your blood test. You will see you're chemically poisoned actually. So you're literally poisoning yourself, thinking it's going to hurt them. No it's only going to hurt you. So it doesn't make sense to me, that's all. It's not a morality, whether you should get angry or not get angry. It's upto if you want to make a mess out of yourself.
