This is a very brief life. Instead of looking to motivate yourself, you should strive to live a full fledged joyful life. When you are joyful, you will anyway do what is needed to the best of your abilities.
You should not be a motivated person. Generally somebody, when we say somebody is motivated, it means they have an agenda of their own. Life has no agenda. It’s for you to be a full-fledged life. A grasshopper is trying to be a full-fledged grasshopper, earthworm is trying to be a full-fledged earthworm, a bird is trying to be a full-fledged bird, a tree is trying to be a full-fledged tree, a human being should strive to become a full-fledged human being. It’s all our business is. But each one of us start creating our own agendas, and doing all kinds of things. No, no! You’re just a piece of life, don’t take yourself too seriously. Because before you and me, countless number of people have come and gone. Where are they? All those people? You think they were all idiots, they were all idiots and they died, is it? No, they were also like you, maybe they were also officers, maybe they were kings, more than you, all kinds of things, all top soil now. This will also become topsoil. Just a little bit of time. Life is a bit of a sparkle. How old is your sunshine 25? So, 27 years ago where was he sir? So, if somebody is not here, we say they are dead, isn’t it? 27 years ago he was dead. We will give him 100 years, 80 years later he will be again dead, yes or no? So, 27 years ago, how long was it that sir? huh long time! So, 85 years later, or 80 years later, how long will he be dead sir? Very long time. So, all of us will be dead for a very long time. We’re alive just for a brief amount of time, yes. Very brief amount of time. We will be dead for a very long time. I want you to look at it in this perspective. How long will you be dead? You can’t imagine, so let us say 10,000 years we are dead, or 100,000 years they are dead or a million years we are dead, all right. How long are you alive compared to that? Very very brief. What you call as life is a brief sparkle. The only thing that you have to do is rise and sparkle, as a full-fledged life. When something is needed around us, we will do that naturally, because when you’re doing wonderfully well, you will do what is needed, isn’t it? when you are miserable, you will be motivated, yes? So, don’t teach your children to become motivated about something. These are all nonsense that’s coming from the West. All those trashy self-help books. Motivate yourself, build confidence, believe in yourself. You believed in God and destroyed so much of this world, now you believe in yourself what will you do!
