Transcript: People come to me, like right now you're all saying IIT is the problem, so I'm inviting you to IYC Isha Yoga Center. A lot of people come to me and say, Sadhguru, these are people who passed out okay? Sadhguru, my mother-in-law she's another, you know, from somewhere else she is. I just don't know how to live with this person. And my husband, after all he is her son. My wife, impossible. My boss is...

... not even human. Like this it goes on. Then I tell them, see don't worry. Your husband, wife, mother-in-law, boss nobody will come here, you're protected. Like IIT, IYC also well protected. Nobody will come here. You just come and stay, I'll give you a nice place to stay, food is good. You don't have to do anything, just be joyful that's all. None of these tormentors are there. Just be joyful. 24 hours you leave them in the one room, you must see in how many ways they twist themselves out. When you are alone if you are miserable, you are obviously in bad company isn't it? So all the young people should do this to yourself. At least for three days, one week. I will provide you the atmosphere, otherwise you can walk into the Himalayas. But there there is no food and supply, you know you will have to go searching. I will provide you food, everything. Just come, spend some time. Not with any purpose, simply. If you sit alone for three days, no television, no book, no texting. Simply by yourself, let's see what happens. You must know the nature of who you are. You should not go on dodging yourself and one day you will explode into something. You must know what is the level of madness you are suffering. When I say madness, if your mind is out of your control, is that called madness in definition? Hello? If your mind does not take instructions from you, it's out of control, is that called madness? Just try. Just today, after this event, just go sit quietly in your room. Just see what all your mind does. You decide, don't tell anybody. You decide what is the level of madness you're going through.

Did you know – Your mind records everything – even in sleep

Transcript: See, you may be sleeping. There are many experiments like this, I won't go into the detail. Even when you're sleeping, you're fast asleep you don't know. I will speak in a language that you do not know, one or ten sentences. Actually we can hypnotize you. After many months or years, we can make you say those sentences in a language that you do not know. You perceive it at a time when you are fast asleep,...

... it is possible to do that. So I am saying if you walk from this place to that place, there may be 25 different kinds of smells. You may not notice it consciously, only if it's very acute either it is very bad or very good, you may notice it. Otherwise you don't notice it. But, in the sensory system all that is recorded. So without knowing why, without actually mentally or intellectually articulating it, you just don't like to go to certain places. Maybe it's the smell, maybe it's the vision, maybe it's the sounds, maybe it's just the energy there. Whatever it is, your four dimensions of karma - physical, mental, emotional, and energetic karma - is always building an elaborate and spectacular web for you. This web is not to trap you. This web is to make life automatic. So that many things you don't have to think, just like that you can do it because it's in your karmic memory. But unfortunately, because people are getting so identified with many things that they do and they start choosing what is good and what is bad. The moment you say this is good, you will develop certain affinity for it. The moment you say this is bad, you will develop certain aversion for it. Both in affinity and aversion, you will get stuck. Now you built an elaborate web but you got stuck in your own web, this is the fate of karma for most people. Karma is the most dynamic way to exist. It simply, literally means you are the maker of your life. For you to be the maker of your life, without your neurological system functioning to your commands, you will never be the maker of your life. You will always be an accidental life. So if you move away from being an accidental life, the people who are experiencing unnecessary levels of anxiety and fear and things on a daily basis. A whole lot of medical professionals are going about saying, these are normal things, you're anxious it's normal. Even I am also anxious. This is not the way to make a human being. A human being is capable of being above this. We are considered as human beings. We did not use the word being for any other creature. We don't call an elephant an elephant being, a tiger a tiger being, an ant an ant being or something like this. We only called humans as beings because you are capable of being. That means, you are capable of conscious existence. That means you are capable of using every faculty that you have the way you want, not in reaction to what happens around you, but by conscious response.

The unbelievable power of imagination

Transcript: Tantra is willing to use the mind in a certain way. Tantric processes need elaborate visualization. Elaborate. Very sophisticated levels of visualization to a point where it manifests. To make mental process just like a physical process is what tantra is trying to do. To make imagination so strong that after some time, it is like physical. You actually create a ghost or you create a god. Both are possible....

... Both are possible, any kind of form you want, you can actually create it, manifest it, and make it walk. You know, like I was probably at that time, first standard means I was five, six. Six, seven I think. Second, third standard I must have been. And I have a cousin brother who's a no good fellow. So that time, in my mind I'm, you know, like if I'm sitting like this, I can be engaged in my mind for hours on end without any communication with anybody. Because I'm setting up all kinds of things. So I loved Mysore zoos so much, I want to have my own zoo. So I designed my own zoo. I didn't call it a zoo, it was a world by itself where animals were not locked as I wanted them. They were all over the place. Lots of animals and of course, I had a rhinoceros. So this fellow, you know one day something, he was with me and I told him, do you want to see my pet animals? He said, yeah. So I just kind of took him in. I just started talking to him and I sat with him and I told him, see this is it. Can you see this? Can you see this? Can you see this? See this one. Every day he wants to go. A couple of times I allowed because he had something that I wanted. After that he has nothing but he wants to go every day. And every day I have to sit with him and take him in. He got addicted to it. I am saying, it can become so real.

Why do we direct our negative emotions towards our loved ones? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Karan Johar | #5

Synopsis: The people you love the most, you kind of tend to dump all your anxieties, your anger, your fears, your insecurities, all onto that one source that gives you the maximum love and the one that you love the most. Why is it that we, as a human race, tend to do that? Tend to lumber all our negative emotions on our most positive light source.

Are we stuck in time? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Kangana Ranaut | #12

Synopsis: Einstein said that time doesn’t exist. But, somehow we’re stuck in it. And you say that space took a cyclic turn and that’s how we’re stuck in time. Is it only our bodies or our mind? What is it exactly like?

Can thoughts alter reality? Is mentalism possible?

Transcript: Can human mind do things outside? Of course. Of course it can. Today if I utter this word, I'm sure there's a whole lot of misunderstanding because this comes from elsewhere. This is what tantra means. Tantra does not mean unbridled promiscuity as Americans have projected it. Tantra means technology. Technology means when, those times when we did not have any external instruments of technology, we...

show more...
... realized the highest grade of technology is here. And to exercise this in many different ways. Now if we want to see outside the door, we need a periscope. Now somebody found a way to look beyond without a periscope. Using your mind beyond the realm of your body. Right now mind is functioning within the realm of your body. You want to use it there. It is possible to do that, it's not not possible. It's just that all kinds of wild and absurd things are believed. If you trim those things, in many ways, knowingly or unknowingly, many of you are using this. You create what you want in the world when you really want it. In a way it's simply your focus which makes those things happen. Maybe it is not as tangible as it's in a cinema but every one of you, to some extent you're doing, isn't it? How effectively do you do it depends on, there are many things. If I say things that happen around me, they're too fairy tailish. I wouldn't believe such nonsense if anybody told me, so I won't tell you because I don't want you to believe or disbelieve those things. But every day people around me witness things which they think is nothing short of a miracle, but there's no miracle. See if you use any thought. This is, well he was asking how do we do it in the beginning. Suppose you generate a thought. Have you noticed this? Suppose you generate a thought and then you invest your emotion in this thought, suddenly the thought becomes boom. Yes or no? Right now I generate a thought, oh she's such a wonderful person. But now I invest my emotion into the thought. Now suddenly you are not just another person to me you are something else to me. Is it reality or no? Just because you invested your emotion into your thought, now there is a next thing. If you invest your life energies into it consciously, suddenly this will become something else altogether. Suddenly you become like, life is a play.

Is inception possible? Can someone plant thoughts into you?

Transcript: Can somebody plant a thought? Definitely. Definitely, yes. If you're talking about someone consciously wanting to plant a thought in you, is that possible? Very much possible. But you shouldn't get into this mode. Because every time you do something wrong, you will think somebody planted this in my mind. Even if you let somebody plant it in your head, it is still your doing, isn't it? In fact, we can...

... plant a whole philosophy into you, if you want. Why just a thought? A whole series of thought, a complex series of thought we can plant into your head. But, there are different ways of planting a thought. There are dark ways of doing it. The dark ways of doing it involves various dark arts through which they will plant negative thoughts in your head. Where you will work for your own destruction. So if you're talking about negative thoughts being implanted into you, all you have to do is bring some simple meditation or something where your system gets organized in such a way that these things cannot affect you. Or you must carry something with you which will create a certain cocoon of energies around you where these things cannot affect you. There are various ways of preventing somebody else influencing your thought. There are straight ways of doing it. There are other ways of doing it, where a thought is not planted. You are made to think in a certain way, purely for your well-being. This needs to be done. Otherwise, you will just scatter yourself all over the place and spend your life without any purpose. Without getting anywhere.

Try this mind experiment to get insight into how the mind works

Transcript: Well, see the way the question is asked and also the way, normally it's addressed is, people think there is something called as negative thought and positive thought. They want to remove the negative thoughts and have only positive thoughts. For such people, I would ask them to just experiment for 10-15 seconds. Let them forcefully remove one thought from their mind. For example, next 10 seconds, just...

show more...
... don't think of a monkey. Try not to think of a monkey for next 10 seconds, you will see you will be full of monkeys. So what I'm saying is, this is the nature of your mind. Because, in this mind, all the three pedals are throttle. There is no break, there is no clutch, whatever you touch, it will only go faster. In this kind of mind, people have been taught, from moral teachers and religious teachers, do not think about bad things. Well, since then it's been a full-time job. So there is no way you can handle the mind like this. This doesn't need any great enlightenment. If you spend two minutes with your eyes closed, you will realize you cannot do anything forcefully with this mind. So, I want to remove negative thoughts. Do not ever go in this direction because what you want to remove will become your quality. Always you will be on it. So what should I do? The thing is this, without understanding the fundamental mechanism of this mind, because our mind, human mind is the most soft sophisticated computer on the planet. Even all the super computers have come out of this. When this is the case, is it not important that we understand the mechanics of how it functions? One simplistic aspect of how it functions is, there are no subtractions and divisions in our mind. There is only addition and multiplication. If you try to do something with it, it will say one more. If you try hard, it will multiply into many more. In this mind, you don't try to identify what is positive, what is negative, and try to remove it. First of all, one needs to understand, this mind of yours, this body of yours is supposed to serve you. The life that you are is important. Body and mind are vehicles, that must serve us. If you sit in a vehicle, it must go where you want to go. If it goes to its own destination, what is the point of such a vehicle? It's just a nuisance. Right now, most human beings are unfortunately experiencing this fantastic possibility of human mind as a nuisance, as a troublesome thing. Well, this is the most beautiful thing you have.

How to stop the minds chatter? Can the mind really become thoughtless?

Synopsis: Thoughtlessness, no-mind are terms which are being used very often these days. Sadhguru says - "it took millions of years of evolution to get to a mind of this kind of capability". So, why would you want to stop it? It's because this mind is producing unpleasantness, that's why you want to stop it - if it was producing pleasantness then you wouldn't want it to stop. What is important is to bring a...

... little space between the you and your mind - once that happens then whatever is happening in your mind will not bother you.

You can manifest whatever you want by doing this one simple thing

Transcript: Even without doing any activity, you can still manifest what you want. If you organize these four dimensions in one direction, and keep it unwavering in that direction for a certain period of time. Now he believes Shiva will do it for him, and it will happen. So is Shiva going to come and build your house? No. I want you to understand, God will not lift his little finger for you. What has not happened...

show more...
... till now on this planet, can happen tomorrow. Human beings are capable of making it happen tomorrow. Everything we, as human beings, have created on this planet, was essentially first created in our minds. All that you see, which is human work on this planet. First found expression in the mind, then it got manifested in the outside world. The wonderful things that we have done on this planet and the horrible things that we have done on this planet, both have come from the human mind. So if you're concerned as to what we create in this world, it's extremely important that first of all we learn to create the right things in our mind. How we keep our minds. If we do not have the power to keep our minds the way we want it, what we create in the world is also going to be very accidental and haphazard. So learning to create our minds the way we want is the basis of creating the world the way we want. A well established mind, a mind which is in the state of Samyukti is referred to as a KalpaVriksha. If you organize your mind to a certain level of organization, it in turn, organizes the whole system. Your body, your emotion, your energies, everything gets organized in that direction. Once all these four dimensions of you, your physical body, your mind, your emotion, and the fundamental life energies are organized in one direction. Once you're like this, anything that you wish happens, without even lifting a little finger actually. Right now the problem with your mind is, every moment it is changing its direction. It is like you want to travel somewhere and every two steps if you keep changing your direction, the question of you reaching the destination is very remote. Unless it happens by chance. So organizing our minds and in turn, organizing the whole system, and these four basic dimensions of who you are right now, in one direction. If you do this, you are a KalpaVriksha yourself. Anything that you wish will happen.

... in one direction, and keep it unwavering in that direction for a certain period of time. Now he believes Shiva will do it for him, and it will happen. So is Shiva going to come and build your house? No. I want you to understand, God will not lift his little finger for you. What has not happened till now on this planet, can happen tomorrow. Human beings are capable of making it happen tomorrow. Everything we, as human beings, have created on this planet, was essentially first created in our minds. All that you see, which is human work on this planet. First found expression in the mind, then it got manifested in the outside world. The wonderful things that we have done on this planet and the horrible things that we have done on this planet, both have come from the human mind. So if you're concerned as to what we create in this world, it's extremely important that first of all we learn to create the right things in our mind. How we keep our minds. If we do not have the power to keep our minds the way we want it, what we create in the world is also going to be very accidental and haphazard. So learning to create our minds the way we want is the basis of creating the world the way we want. A well established mind, a mind which is in the state of Samyukti is referred to as a KalpaVriksha. If you organize your mind to a certain level of organization, it in turn, organizes the whole system. Your body, your emotion, your energies, everything gets organized in that direction. Once all these four dimensions of you, your physical body, your mind, your emotion, and the fundamental life energies are organized in one direction.

How to control the mind?

This mental diarrhea of uncontrolled thought process cannot be addressed by such crazy ideas and philosophies as 'sit with closed eyes and try not to think of anything'.

life and death – not two different things

Death is the baseline of life. If you do not understand death, you will never know life, nor can you handle life, because life and death are like inhalation and exhalation. They exist together, inseparably. Spiritual process begins only when you are confronted with death – either your own one or that of someone who is dear to you, someone you thought you could not live without. When death is approaching or when it happens, that is when the question comes up in most people’s minds, “What is this all about? What will happen beyond this?”

Dreams are nothing but unconscious imagination. They can be used to access certain dimensions of mind to which normally you don't have access. In fact certain cultures have used it for occult purposes. Though many people misunderstand this as mysticism - mysticism is only when you go beyond the physical dimension of body and mind. Dreams are just a manifestation of a false world within.
