Just spend a few days sitting in your room- Sadhguru about longing

My question stems from the first question
that was asked and As you said it is about how intense your longing
is. Now
I mean my problem is say a lack [of] discipline and lot of things including say I’m not able
to maintain the discipline of doing my Shambhavi
regularly and somewhere, I think it is because [of]
course if I long for it long for something sincerely then the discipline would come about
So is longing Always up is it related to a certain situation
And time it comes with a situation or time what can something be done to intensify the
longing itself How long has it been since you felt hungry? That’s a few hours. [Sadhguru]: really hungry. [when] did you feel last? Because most people never allow themselves
to feel hungry. They’re eating throughout the day
How long has it been when you felt really really hungry? [Seeker]: Once in a while, Yes. [Sadhguru]: tell me how long ago
Really really hungry [am] [I] right? I mean I of course
Hunger happens, and then we eat, but I don’t know when it was so hungry that I. [Sadhguru]:
Okay. It’s been a long time then. [Seeker]: Yes, yes
because hunger is not an experience that you forget. Its intense
so, if you fasted for three days four days
Then you will use everything One extra finger moment you won’t make you
will use everything carefully You will say only what you want to say you
will not say dada Dada Dada speak like this You will go carefully because now energies
are limited, and [you] know you have to be in a certain way no training is needed
Simply because you’re hungry you become quiet, you become like this
Similarly if the longing for something is just like hunger. If you’re longing strong enough
Everything will fall into place by itself. You don’t have to bring discipline into your
life. You have to search for a guru
Nothing. Everything will fall into life by itself
if you long strong enough So the problem is there is no longing because
there is too much snacking People who are snacking all the time they
don’t feel hunger? Because you’re snacking. Snacking means right now you are trying to
satisfy your longing Human longing is to expand boundlessly
but you’re satisfying your longing with shopping, by
watching a cricket match, by watching a cinema, by talking to somebody, by reading something
by Distracting yourself with a million other
things So just spend a few days. nothing
Simply you paint your room white Okay
Comfortable chair, but eyes open no sleeping alert and open no reading no thinking no
Creating new philosophy nothing simply sitting You will see
Initially you may feel like you’re going crazy but after some [time] you see
Clearly what is this life longing for becomes [100] percent clear to you? 100 percent clear to you there will be no
doubt about that So this is the reason why we create spaces. An Ashram exists
So that you come and make use of it [for] your sadhana. You understand
That you come, you invest a certain amount of time in a year at least a week or two weeks
[just] [for] this one, for nothing else just
If you feel this being is worthwhile, if you feel this being
Deserves at least that much attention, you [must] give it at least a couple of weeks
in a year [fifty] weeks for you
Fifty weeks for the world, two weeks for you Just for you
Not for your body not for your mind not for entertainment not for your family just for
you You need to understand this the best thing
the foremost thing and the most beautiful thing
That you can offer to people around you is you are an evolved human being
Yes, or no? Not your money, not your wealth, not your
rubbish, not your work which is going to make the difference
Being with you is a wonderful experience for people around you. Your family, the people that you work with,
your friends Everybody aspire to be with you because it’s
a wonderful experience to be [with] you This is the best thing that you can ever do
to any any human being around you That’s all they aspire [for], isn’t it? But now the problem is you [are] looking for
that wonderful person Oh, I met this wonderful person. Why the hell are you not that wonderful person?
because you never Paid any attention to this. You [think] something that’s happening around
you is more important than what is this. no no no
The quality of your life is essentially determined by the quality of what this is
How this is that’s how it will be wherever we put you
Whether we put you in heaven, or hell The experience and the quality of your life
is determined by how this is not how the situation is
You must spend some time without snacking then you will know what is hunger. Once you are sufficiently hungry
Then you know the value of food, isn’t it? Otherwise you will not know the value of food,
what it means. Just don’t eat for 24 hours and then
When somebody serves a meal, don’t gobble it immediately, just sit there wait for two
minutes Just look at the food, see what it means to
you Its life sitting out there in the plate
Not some rubbish, not some material, not some stuff, its life
Your life sitting out there in the plate, isn’t it? If you see food like this experientially,
the way you handle the food, will it change or no? Yes
That’s all. So, if you create just one week, where you
simply? You don’t worry, if you come we will fix it,
how to fix it for you if you fix it in a certain way, and then you
see Wanting to know what this is will become the
prime importance in your life Once [there] is longing everything else will
align itself The Heaven and hell will work for you
They will start working for you if the longing is big enough
Nobody can stop it, Everything will align with you. That is the nature of the universe
If this one thing which is the source of creation gets fired up
The creation will get aligned behind you, it will not be against you
the simplest and the most fundamental thing that you can do in your
life is That you are life always
You don’t have to be in any particular way, you just have to be alive everything else
Including the body and the mind are accessories to life
Accessories are added to life to facilitate certain things
Not to overshadow life We add accessories to facilitate to [add-on]
and enhance Not to overshadow completely
Not to occupy life, but to enhance life If you know this and [know] this every moment
of [your] life That everything that you possess
Including your body and your mind are accessories. [they’re] here only to enhance this life
Not to overshadow this life. Oh
Let me see how you get depressed You must get spot-on with life. This is all you have to do
What is you and what is not you? Must be distinction. So whatever it is not you when you hold it
[you] must hold it in a certain way Of course depending on the nature of what
it is if it’s a flower we hold it one way If it’s a vessel we hold it another way if
it’s a pen we hold it another way Can you employ the same grip on everything? It’s different
Depending upon the Nature of what it is But every kind of grip that you use if you
notice, how you hold anything for that matter? There is always this dimension that you can
loosen the grip and let it be Suppose you hold something and you cannot
loosen the grip okay, you are heading for the stuff
So just look at these things how many things in your life are such
That you held it and now you can’t loosen the grip
These two months. This is all you need to do
Consciously don’t tell anybody they will all fight you
They think you’re going to leave them and go away they [think] you’re going to take
sannyas they think something else and something else
[no] within yourself nothing needs to be done [outside]
Within yourself. How are [you] holding it for this a simple
thing is like this Tomorrow morning you are going to die. I am very generous. I am giving you 24 hours? yes
The Nature of life is such it never guarantees 24 hours for you, but I am giving you 24 hours
Tomorrow morning, you’re going to die Do what you want you’re going to loosen the
grip on everything [isn’t] it? Do whatever you want whichever way you want
to loosen the grip [image]. Have you seen in the Hindi movies
No, have you not seen the movies. losing the grip its gone
Loosen the grip on your body loosen the grip on your mind your thought [your] emotion just
loosen the grip a little bit When you are alive if you loosen the grip
you will become exuberant when you’re dying
That’ll any [way] happene the last scene So these two months you must make use of it
to Loosen the grip on everything I am a hard nut so I learnt it in my own way,
but These days [I] am seeing all the golf trainers
are telling their
Whatever the trainees those who want to learn those who have been playing for many years
also, they’re teaching them He must hold it loose. You [know] you should not hold it tight
Normally when you want to hit something you are already tight
But you must hold it loose This will happen to you if you have never
ridden on a bicycle for the first time you sit on it
When you loosen it, [it] rides well. isn’t it ? just loosen it. You will see you will ride the life well
too tight Have you seen the new Cycle [Rider]?
it doesn’t go anywhere So [you’ve] got to loosen the grip
