Can we get work done without using anger and irritation? Which means without wasting our energy? Can we work that way throughout the day? Yes? Who makes us angry? Close your eyes for a minute and recall the scene when you got angry the last time. Let us quickly check who made us angry. Bring on the screen of your mind the last time you created anger. Just see it, last time you created anger. Check what had happened. What had somebody said or done. And how I had responded. Who caused my anger that day? If the same scene repeats tomorrow Can I cross that scene with stability? Remaining absolutely calm. Same scene, same behaviour, same people and same situation. The mistake that somebody did – it also remains the same. Nothing will change outside. Can I cross that same scene with stability and ease? Will it be possible? How many of you feel that if the same scene unfolds tomorrow, you will cross it with stability? Which means when the scene happens tomorrow, our focus will be on the glass. It does not mean the other person can do whatever they want. It means we will hold the glass like this, speak to them, We will give them advice and discipline them very strictly. But this glass will not shake, which means our state of mind will not shake. We will discipline them with respect, not with aggression. We will increase our energy and their energy while disciplining them. We will not deplete our and their energy, and then tell them, “Do it this way”. Is this possible tomorrow? Yes or no? Sure? How many can do it for one day tomorrow? Sunday is easier or Monday is easier? Which is easier – Sunday or Monday? There is a mixed opinion these days. This is also a change which has happened in the society. I have seen this. Until 5 years ago, people were very clear. That Monday to Friday, things are a certain way. But Saturday and Sunday they are different at home. Today we don’t understand which place is more stressful. Monday to Friday? Or Saturday and Sunday? It actually is not a matter to be applauded. It is not good news, what is happening is not right. From Monday to Friday we think, “The day I am at home I can relax. I am so tired.” But on Saturday and Sunday we come across so many differences and arguments So we say, I was better off at office. What is the point of staying at home?” So earlier we thought workplaces were stressful. Today we started saying family is stressful. Actually the truth is Neither workplace is stressful nor family is stressful. Neither are children our cause of stress. It is my not correct thinking. It is my not correct thinking in every situation. It is my reaction in every situation. It is my wasting my energy in every situation. Until 5 years ago, the glass would only get half-empty. So at least in most houses, people were emotionally stable. But in the last 5 years, so much more water started spilling off. So there is very little water left in the glass. So we feel stressed even at home. We feel stressed even in relationships. We label children as the cause of our tension. Children label parents as the cause of their tension. The most beautiful relationship – we cannot call them the cause of stress. Why did this happen? Only because our glass was shaky. If you take up a pledge (vow) for one week All of us keep vows, “This week I should not eat this.” or “This week I will not do this.” Let us follow it for one week – Sunday to next Sunday. No-Anger week. No matter what happens. Literally let anything happen. It does not mean we allow anything tp happen. We will take care of it, but we will first take care of our state of mind before taking charge of it. Can we take a personal guarantee for one week? Yes. These are the vows that we need to take. That for one week, I will not use this emotion but I will use that emotion. If you do this for one week, which is very easy. Because all that we have to do is take care. There will be many situations. Situations will unfold right from the moment you step out of this hall. You go to the car parking lot, and a situation will be waiting for you. Maybe you will just take out your new car and another car will hit it. Another driver hits your car. The two vehicles collide. Suppose there will be a dent in your car. But it should remain only on the car isn’t it? The dent should remain on the car, but where do we create a dent? (On our mind.) This is only what it is. In every situation our reaction is depleting inner power. The dent on the car will get removed tomorrow. If there is acute damage, then we can change the car itself. But what about the battery here which kept on depleting? Because we said they made a mistake, there is dent on the car, so getting angry is natural. And we depleted energy. We don’t have to do anything for happiness. Today we are working so hard to be happy. We don’t have to do anything. We just need to conserve our energy throughout the day. When we get angry at someone, who is at a loss? – is it them or us? For example, two people are facing each other. One of them is scolding the other. People watching them will say, “It is a pity that he is getting yelled at.” Between the two, who deserves sympathy? The one who is at a loss gains our sympathy or pity. Isn’t it? Who deserves sympathy among the two? The one who is scolding. When we know everything Shouldn’t we change our lifestyle? Even if we scold someone just once What is happening in terms of Karmic account? You walked this way. That brother was standing in the way. He was wrong. You scold him, “Is this the place for you to stand? Move aside.” That is it. It took only 10 seconds. So my investment of energy is only for 10 seconds and then I walk out. And I forget him. But he does not forget me. How will he think about me after that incident? Can you see? My investment of 10 seconds But the return that I will keep getting from him will be for… How long does it take to forget it? Sister, how long do you take to forget, if someone is not nice to you? 1 second. How long will you take sister? I will insult you now in front of everybody. How long will you take to forget it? You won’t remember at all? Won’t you remember even when you look at me? You will remember, isn’t it? For how many years will you remember, the moment you see me? It means we haven’t forgotten until then. Because the wound would still be there. Someone who says they forget within a second – scold such people if you want to. You are safe. Because they will not remember what you said. Which means that investment will not have negative returns. But a majority of us are not capable of doing it today. 20 or 30 years ago, the entire family would live together. 10 to 20 people lived together in the same house. It did not mean there was no difference of opinion or differences in Sanskars among them. But people had the habit of adjusting with each other and getting along with each other. They had the habit of forgetting it even if someone was not nice to them. It was easy for them. Even if we scolded someone in those days, they would forget the matter soon. Today even if you don’t like somebody’s post – then tomorrow which is Sunday morning Tomorrow when that person notices that you have not like their photo on social media They will send you so many (opposite of) blessings on Sunday morning. You will start wondering why you are not feeling good. Someone, somewhere is not sending you the right energy. Because people are getting affected very easily. So scolding somebody today is a very high risk investment. We forget immediately after scolding them, but they will not forget. Until they forget it, their energy of pain will keep coming to us. This person scolded the other person, forgot about it and went into a meeting. The other person who got scolded is sitting in a car and continuously thinking about the one who scolded. He met 5 car drivers there and shared that his employer gets angry all the time, even over insignificant reasons. Even those 5 people sent their energy to the one who scolded. And you (the one who scolded) sitting at the office will wonder that although nothing unpleasant happened, Why is there a vacuum inside, why am I not happy? Everything is perfect in my life. Why am I not feeling contented? Why am I not happy? The reason is that 5 people are sending me negative vibrations. That is taking away all my energy. This is an investment I make, and I will get its returns. The opposite of this can also happen. Somebody made a mistake. You corrected them. But you spoke to them with respect and love. Discipline with respect and dignity. The other person will not forget even in this case. But what energy will they send you? Blessings. That person will tell 5 more people, “I made such a huge mistake today. I did not come on time for work.” “My employer nearly missed his flight. Yet he never scolded me. He is very understanding. He always speaks so lovingly.” What will we earn that day? Blessings. And when you receive blessings from 5 people when you are in the flight, Even if nothing is going right in your business, You will say, “I don’t know why. Although nothing is going right in my business, I am feeling happy.” “I have no tensions. I am confident everything will be fine.” Nothing is going right outside but I am happy. Because my happiness is not dependent on things being perfect outside. It is dependent on my Karma. The energy I radiate to people. And the energy I get in return. Earning money is one account. The other account is of earning blessings. When there is any problem or any crisis in life Money is required. But sometimes, all the money that we have can also not resolve the problem. But at that moment something happens and the problem gets resolved. People around us say, “Don’t know whose blessings helped.” We had earned those blessings through our Karma. There is only one way to be happy always. Creating high energy, radiating high energy, and receiving high energy in return. Living with a purpose of life to only keep giving blessings and earning blessings in return. Someone who keeps giving blessings and receiving blessings – how will their glass be by evening? Morning they started with glass full. During the day they gave blessings and received blessings from everyone. So what happens to the glass by evening? This glass will be filled with blessings when it comes home to your children. It will come to your children. Our responsibility is not only to earn money and get it home. Our responsibility is also to earn blessings and bring it home. Money can buy us only objects of comfort. Money can only buy things. We started thinking that money can buy us happiness. We started teaching that to our children also. We give them things and ask them to be happy. Don’t teach your children that happiness is dependent on things. You give it to them and say, “Now you be happy, I bought this for you.” No. Tell them, “You play this game, but your happiness is not dependent on this game.” There is a lot that money can buy. But there is a lot that money cannot buy. What is it that money cannot buy? Happiness is what money cannot buy. What else? Peace is what money cannot buy. What else? Treatment money can buy. Health money cannot buy. Houses money can buy. Relationships money cannot buy. There are some things which can be bought with money. Happiness, peace, love, respect, trust – these are not physical. Whatever is not physical, they cannot be bought with money. Whatever is energy, they can be experienced only with energy. So if we want to be happy, we need to earn energy.
