Erase the negative. We decide we want to celebrate –
anybody’s birthday today? Today? Yesterday? Tomorrow?
In a day or 2? Okay, so Ruchi;
let’s celebrate. Let’s sing for Ruchi,
‘Happy birthday to you’, etc. Singing – you don’t sing so well,
so, we will play a CD. ‘Happy birthday to you…’ Such CDs are available.
So, he puts a CD. It is turned on.
What should come out? (Happy birthday to you) Instead, it was stuck on
happy, happy, happy, happy… What will we say?
This CD is damaged. Ladies, if you think of only
one thought repeatedly, then? ‘The lady is damaged!’ It is not moving ahead only. She keeps
thinking, ‘What will we do about this?’ Hold on to it for 10 minutes.
Cry if you wish, Bang your head if you wish, Then decide, ‘I want to live,
and I want to live like this only.’ Then plan and go ahead. You can hold this?
How many grams? 100 grams?
Okay, 100 grams. Can you lift it?
In a healthy way? Means you won’t collapse or anything?
Hold this for 72 hours at a stretch! Straight!
No support. You said you can hold it.
Hold it for? (72 hours) Or should we ask him
to do it for 5 days? Hold it for 5 days and
you can’t call the ambulance. Sorry, within a day,
or I can say within 12 hours, It will come in the newspapers, ‘One person was hospitalised because
he was holding 100 grams!’ Right or wrong?
So, what does this say? Small thing, but if it’s in
your head for a long time, You will be paralysed. So, you have to learn to forget. When you enter your house,
especially in South Mumbai, I don’t know about the suburbs.
Do you close your door? Or is it that this neighbour’s door is open,
the other neighbour’s door is also open, As you come out of the lift, you choose,
‘Where do I want to go for tea today?’ So hospitable, so nice,
everyone is so friendly. In South Mumbai,
you just shut the door, For 2 years you are staying there,
you don’t know who lives across! So whatever it is.
Both are good. That shows what a
social circle you have. Usually we close
the gates after we enter. Why don’t we close
the gates of our past? Check these doors, are they
closed or open? Look. (Closed) As soon as you entered, as soon as the
satsang started, they were closed. Why can’t you close the gates to the past?
Or, if at all you remember your past, Is there a twinkle in your eye,
or a wrinkle on your forehead? Twinkle? Can you see a spark –
Twinkle twinkle little star, Or, Oh God! What a mistake I made!
A wrinkle on your face. You decide.
It is so important. There was one discipleji who
goes to one Guruji. Obviously, if I say a disciple,
he has to go to a Guru. He can’t go to his boyfriend
or girlfriend or anything, right? So, he goes to the Guruji.
“Guruji, my wife is a pain.” “Everything else is wonderful.
Business is wonderful. This is…” Means, somewhere it
is the opposite! “Everything is very good,
except this one thing.” “And I am fed up of life;
sometimes I feel like ending it.” Guruji says, “We will talk of it later.” “Go to the kitchen and there is a glass of
almond-pistachio milk with added saffron.” “It’s masala milk full of
almond-pistachio. Just get that.” So he gets it. In that,
He adds just a little bit of ‘dhool’. What is ‘dhool’? Dust. Little bit, He adds that dust,
stirs it, and tells him to drink. He drinks. It’s prasad,
so he drinks. So, the Guruji says,
“Didn’t this dust disturb you?” “What Guruji! With so many
almonds and pistachios,” “Now, a little bit of dust,
I didn’t even register.” And that’s what Guruji says, “God
has given you so many beautiful things,” “So many almonds and pistachios; a
little bit of dust, can’t you ignore it?” Something like that takes
place in everyone’s life. If you tell me,
“Was Your life an express highway?” I would say, “No.” So many things happened in 52 years. But I have learnt to
ignore it and move ahead. That is important. You know there is a fast train to Delhi.
(Rajdhani Express) Only 2 years I will be able
to give this example. Once the bullet train begins,
no one will travel by Rajdhani, It will run empty.
They will cancel it. Right? So, Rajdhani is the
fastest train to? Delhi. Why? Maya?
Why is it the fastest train? Why is it called the fastest train,
the best train to go to Delhi? It reaches fast. Why, but?
It does not stop at small stations. Only 4 stations it takes.
It stops only at 1 station in each state. It’s the fastest train.
So, if you don’t stop at small stations, If you don’t get
stuck up at small things, You will reach fast.
So you will reach moksh fast. But if 50 things happen in a day,
and you halt at 50 stations, Then, I doubt
whether you will reach.
