SriSriSpeaks: Today what our world needs is not intelligence. There is enough intelligence in every country. What the world is missing is innocence. The value of innocence is being destroyed. And that innocence is egolessness. That what is needed today… Innocence… and that is love.
Q: Guruji, can you please tell me, what is time with respect to the whole universe?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Time is a dimension, space is a dimension, mind is a dimension and mind is linked to time. I have spoken a lot about time. There is a small booklet on ‘time’ available at the divine shop.
SriSriSpeaks: When your eyes are steady then the mind also becomes steady. If the eyes are steady in one place, it is impossible for the mind to wander.
Q: Dear Guruji, you say that we need to soak the knowledge and wisdom into our soul. But in everyday life it can sometimes be confusing which knowledge point to apply to which situation. Please help me with this.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Just relax, they will all just pop up automatically on their own. Like how once you program the computer, the latest news from CNN pops up. Like a television channel on your i-pad. You open your i-pad and suddenly the latest news just pops up. In the same way, the knowledge will simply pop up in your consciousness, you simply have to relax.
There is no way to try and remember, and then apply at that moment. At that moment whatever comes to your memory that is what will be there. You can’t plan to get some memory at that particular time, memory is spontaneous.
SriSriSpeaks: Like water flows down and fire goes up. This is a physical law, the more contented you are the more you will get. And the more lack you feel, that lack will grow. Just wake up to this reality.
Q: How to make this song of life, which is the Bhagavad Gita popular in the pop and twitter generation? Can we have a twitter version of the Gita as well?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Yes, sure! Gita has something to offer to every generation, every age group and every mindset.
