Wisdom of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar by Ed. Karishma Bajaj
“You don’t have to wake up at 4 o’clock and do practice, no. You do it when you’re complete with your sleep. Don’t strain yourself. Your inner connection can only happen when you are relaxed, not if you’re tense. —
Be like a child, unassuming, knowing the more you know there is so much more to be known. Knowing only leads to awareness that you do not know so much more. That brings humility I’m saying? —
Take past as a lesson, and see what you can do in the future. That is why we should take past as destiny and future as free will, that is intelligence. —
World peace comes with individual peace. If individuals become peaceful, communities become peaceful, then the leaders of the world will also become peaceful, and we can have world peace. We need to spiritualize the politics, socialize the business and secularize the religion. —
There is no doubt that you need some money for your day-to-day survival. But money cannot buy you happiness. It’s knowledge or wisdom that brings you happiness. — When you make a new mistake, it is not a mistake; you have learnt a valuable lesson. But when you keep doing the same mistake over and over, it is a BIG mistake. —
If you have to get angry, get angry at bigger things, not the small usual mundane stuff. Get angry at corruption in the system and injustice happening around you. Everyone should speak out against corruption. —
Ego is feeling uncomfortable in the presence of someone else. Self-confidence is, feeling at home. Being natural is antidote to ego, and being natural is so complementary to confidence. It goes with confidence and is inseparable from confidence. —
The test of your peace is only when there are obstacles. Be thankful to obstacles. —
Take the Challenge. Whenever someone is nasty towards you, do something so nice that it takes him by surprise. —
If anyone any time feels lonely, depressed, unhappy or sad, just remember that you are not alone. —
Trust in yourself. Have faith in your choice of actions and the path you would be following. If you don’t trust yourself, how can you trust the Master? —
Misunderstandings happen on this planet because of distance, because there is no closeness, no one ever ‘sits next to’ the other. In one house, people live on different planets. In a town, people live in different galaxies.
