Since we came and sat here for half an hour closer to your grief, you must go and volunteer in a hospice or in a hospital wards where people die. Last moment when it comes when they're dying, they're just bewildered. My question is, suppose humanity makes it past as they do, let's face it, and right now, what would we do if we reach an ideal society where everyone is peaceful and together? What would the end game be? What would we strive towards?
Is it a deal between you and these guys? So look at it this way, because you can't really figure out what all this people want.
Look at yourself right now. You're thinking you want to become an engineer. Let's say right now I make you an engineer this moment. Then you're thinking you need a job. I got you a job. Then you're thinking I need a promotion. I got you. Then you think you need an hour. I got you. Then you thinking, well, I got you right now. Everything that you can dream of, I got you right now. What do you want?
Now I can do that for you. I want you to know I'm striving for a job right now. Yes, now we are we are looking at the end game, right? You've got everything you want, and right now things that you can imagine, things that you cannot imagine right now, everything you've got right now. What do you want right now?
I wouldn't know what to do. Just look at it.
When you say this, what it means is all you want in your life, what you're seeking is struggle to get a job.
It must take three years, then you'll feel, wow, I got a job. Look at all the people who have good jobs. Look at them walking on the street. Are they going blissfully dripping ecstasy.
Hello, miserable guys. They're getting blood pressure going to work. They're getting all kinds of ailments. The freaking out. Yes.
So what do you want? Is it a girl? What do you want? I don't know any more. That's good. I do not know I like that.
Because actually, you do not know everybody keeps fooling themselves at every step in their life thinking what I want is I want to become an engineer, I want to become an engineer, keep you busy for five, seven years, then I want a job.
Job. It keeps you busy for another one or two years. Then I want this kind of job, that kind of job that keeps you busy for another 18 years. I want that much money. That much. Well, that keeps you busy for another 25 years. I want this kind of girl, that kind of girl, that kind of boy that gives you a billion for a few years. Then children will come. I want my child to become this.
This. Well, we are preparing for your funeral. You need to understand you need to understand just this right now, you may be giving all kinds of context to your life, but essentially what you call is my life right now is just a certain combination of time and energy, just as you sit here.
Time is running away for all of us. Can you roll it back? You're an engineer. Can you roll it back? Yesterday was not fruitful, so I roll it back.
Can you? It's rolling away for all of us as we sit here.
What is ticking away here is not the clock. What is ticking away is our life, isn't it?
Since we came and sat here for half an hour closer to your grave, it doesn't matter how young you are. You are getting there, isn't it?
Yes, sir. No. So it's a certain amount of time and that time nobody can manage because it rolls at the same pace.
But everybody, you do something, you don't do anything. You sleep, you're awake, you are happy, you're unhappy.
Do whatever the hell you want. It just keeps rolling mercilessly, isn't it?
So there is energy that you call it like this. You can pitch it at different levels if you're like this. I'm talking about the classroom expression, you know. If you're like this, 24 hours feel like a thousand years. But have you seen on a certain day you wear a happy 24 hours, went off like a moment, and so not so time is a very relative experience in individual subjective experiences.
If you're joyful, if you live 100 years, it feels like a few moments, it's gone.
Only miserable people will have a long life because if you're miserable, you'll always feel life is too long, that you will want to cut it short.
But if you're joyful, the possibility that a human being cause before you look around, it's over, really. But what possibility this is. So what you need to manage is your energies, because life is a certain amount of energy.
It's not limitless, but it can be enhanced if you function at one level of energy, what you do in 10 years time, if you function at a different level of energy, the same thing you can do in one year's time.
So if both people live for 100 years in terms of impact and profoundness of experience, one has lived for a thousand years. Another has lived four hundred miserable years. So this is all you can do. You may think right now. And this one, that one, these are all limited contacts you're setting for yourself fundamentally as a life. It's just time and energy, isn't it?
The question is, what do you make out of it? Do you want to make something out of it? There's no compulsion. You have to make something out of it. When I say making something out of it is not a social phenomenon, I'm talking what should you become in a society? That's not what I'm talking.
Fundamentally, you have come here in terms of life, is you want to experience life. Question is how profoundly right now if people want to experience life, what are they experimenting with?
They will experiment, not just this.
Oh, yeah, yeah I know, I know you guys. Out of that experiment, this or that experiment, something else, what they will experiment is how to don your faculties. You know, the United States has made marijuana legal in a few states, so when I went to a few colleges and universities, they're asking me, why don't you pick someone like you must legalize marijuana for us?
I said, no problem.
Will make marijuana legal, cocaine legal, meth legal. What's the problem? No problem. Only thing is, what is it that you want it to be legal so that you can smoke up and come to the college, right? It's fine. But let's say you want to fly a small airplane. The pilot comes up. You want to fly with him. Uh. Because the is already flying without the airplane. OK, you are not getting the point.
You need a major surgery and a surgeon comes smocked up, you want the surgery? Oh, no. Then you clearly understand this lowers your faculties.
I want all of you to look at this.
Do you believe you can enhance life by lowering your faculties? Hello? If you want to enhance this life, you must super enhance your faculties. That's the only and only way you can enhance this life. You cannot lower your lower your faculties and think your life is getting enhanced.
What kind of stupidity is that?
Simply because it makes you little like this? I can make you feel like this all the time. How that no substance. I'm always like this when you look at my sanshin. Yeah, no substance, but really stoned all the time, and because I want you to understand this, the greatest chemical factory on the planet is here.
If you are a good manager of this, you can create any experience that you want from within and also heighten your faculties.
If you are having an experience even to experience that, your faculty should be heightened, isn't it?
Is this the greatest chemical factory on the planet? Most sophisticated? Do you agree with me? Are there chemical engineers?
So I'm asking, how are you managing your system? What have you done? We gave you such a sophisticated machine. Have you read the user's manual?
At least not blindly do this. And then you think pumping something is going to make this better known?
Believe me, the only only way you can enhance this life is that your faculties are super bright.
The way you see, the way you hear, the way you smell, the way you test and the way you touch, if this is enhanced, is life enhanced in many ways that are much more to it? But I am saying, from what you know, from your experience, I suppose you could see twice better than somebody who was sitting next to you.
Is your life enhanced?
If you could taste better than other people in life, enhanced if you could feel better? Is it life enhanced?
If you could hear better his life enhanced on this level, you understand this, but there are many other dimensions of human faculties. If you enhance this, if you sit here, you will be blissed out simply sitting here.
You wouldn't want to touch any damn thing because just sitting here is the greatest experience of your life.
So about what is the end game? If you had everything, what would you want? If you had everything that you can ever dream of, everything is right here, what would you want?
You must think, isn't it? I want to supply you with an answer, if you do not invest that much thought into your life and your life, that means you're super short sighted.
Hello. This happened to God, the mother. You would have gotten to the bottom because of some astrological prediction that his father heard that you may either become a great emperor or a great sage, and he wanted him to become a great emperor.
He protected this boy and put him in a separate palace where it's all luxury, everything that you can dream of, everything there. God got married to a very pretty young woman. Everything on. No, he should not see any suffering. But one day he just went out, he saw one old man and he asked, why is this guy like this, uh, you know, his chauffeur, his chauffeur or his chariot driver said, oh, everybody becomes like that after a certain time.
He said, What me? I'm a young prince. Will I become like that? Oh, yeah. Everybody will become like that. Then he saw a man who suffering with some kind of disease ailment. Why is that guy like that said it'll happen to a lot of people who it will hit. There is no prediction anybody can become ill. Most people think it happens to other people. Not it can happen to us. Hello. And then this his whole funeral, a dead body.
What is that? They said that is inevitable. Everybody will die. Do you also know you will also die? No, because most people believe other people die.
Not intellectually they know, but they think that forever.
Oh, you must be conscious. You are mortal. Mortal means you have a limited amount of time and energy. If you're always conscious about this, how would you organize your time and energy? You decide. If you're conscious about it, if you think you're a super human being, you're not going to die, other people will die. All the best.
If you go, you can realize this on your deathbed, andI.
The. People might think this is extreme, but you must go and volunteer in a hospice or in a hospital wards where people die and you must see to it important where really important.
Only then you become sensitive to life. Life becomes super valuable because, you know, it's a limited amount of time.
If you watch this, unfortunately, today in the world, over 80 percent of the people when the last moment when it comes, when they die, they are not fearful, they are not in pain, they are not in something else. They're just bewildered. A look of bewilderment comes because all the life they just lived there, thought and emotion, they never lived a life. This is important, you must understand, there is a psychological reality in your head and there is an existential reality, which is life.
Most people are mistaking their psychological reality to be existential, your thought and emotion has become more significant in the cosmos, isn't it?
Hello. What do you think? What nonsense you think and feel. Has it become more important than the universe? No.
This means you are making your creation more significant than the larger creation. This means you must suffer. If you don't suffer, I'll be disappointed. Yes, I will be. Because if you live, if ignorance doesn't make you suffer, then what?
Then what's the use of meaning? Because it takes a lot to come out of the trap. What is the use of somebody striving to come out of the trap of ignorance when people can live wonderfully in their ignorance? What is the point? What are the rules of knowledge? What is the use of knowing? What are the rules of enlightenment? What are the rules of realization? If people can live absolutely blissfully in their ignorance, what is the point?
When you're ignorant, you must suffer. And I want you to know the greatest evil right now on the planet is not evil. It's ignorance.
