Can we predict the future?

Transcript

What’s going to happen in the future. Don’t try to predict future. See what kind of future do you want to create. Why are we always trying to predict future? I want you to set a goal, before I die, I want to leave the world at least this much better. Wouldn’t that be better? Instead of predicting future, why don’t you set a goal for yourself? Before I leave this world, I will make it at least this good. If all of us set a goal like that, definitely there’s a wonderful future ahead isn’t it? We are hoping from the stars some guidance will come. Stars are dumb, inanimate rocks. Okay? You are supposed to have brains and intelligence. They don’t have all that. They’re just far away but they’re just dumb, unintelligent rocks, isn’t it so? Yes or no? Just because they are far away, we don’t have to attach such importance to them. They are not guiding our lives. Human destiny is in human hands. How we handle it, that’s what it will become. If you handle it sensibly, definitely there’s a wonderful tomorrow. If you handle it foolishly, definitely there’s going to be a terrible tomorrow, isn’t it? So don’t predict. Prediction means an insult to humanity. All predictions are a terrible insult to humanity, isn’t it? Isn’t it so? That means there is no value for what a human being is. All this nonsense is happening simply because you have not realized the immensity of being human. How big it is to be a human being has not been realized. The very wonderful stories in India, you must have heard. In India there are stories like this. If gods have any problems, they get into trouble. They will come down to meet the sages and saints for advice and consultancy. You know that? This is just to tell you, a human being can raise himself to such a stage that even the gods will have to seek advice from him. Just to tell you the immensity of being human, what it means. So if you realize the immensity of being a human being, then you won’t predict, you will create. Don’t ever underestimate what is in a human heart. What people really want, don’t underestimate that. In 10 years’ time, the whole world may just be changed into a complete different possibility, you know. It is just that people need sufficient poking to get them going. But when they get going, you don’t know what they can do. They can do something that’s never happened on the planet till now, isn’t it? Isn’t it so?
