When I am trying to expand on Upanishads, even I feel I am not using enough words! It is like it is not adequate. Saraswathi may be eloquent, but not adequate to translate the silence of Mahadeva. Translating the silence of Mahadeva, even Saraswathi feels inadequate! She may be eloquent in front of anything, but inadequate in front of Mahadeva’s silence. Upanishads are Mahadeva’s silence. Translating that into words! It is only by Mahadeva’s grace I can translate, translate, translate his silence into words and deliver, understand?
I was expanding on the concept of “nation” and “desha” (“देश” ). When decision-makers, whether in the field of business or ruling, when decision-makers are out of fear and greed, it is all about producing in mass and sharing with the world. When the decision-makers are caught in fear and greed, then it is all going to be about possessing and controlling. Wealth, handled with incompletion, will lead to possessiveness. Power, handled with incompletion, will become controlling. A powerless man, when he is given power, he will only be controlling. A poor man, when he is given wealth, he will only be possessing. A poor man does not even know how to live with wealth, I am telling you. He will just make a big godown, iron godown, a thick wall iron godown, put everything inside, and lock it, and sleep on it! That’s all! And die! Is this the purpose of wealth? And his whole life he will spend worrying, ‘Will anybody know what I am keeping under my bed? And will anybody steal it?’ A poverty-conscious man, even if he stumbles on wealth, he cannot live it. A poor man, incomplete man, even if he sees wealth, he is not going to enjoy it, live it. He may possess it, but he may not live it! Same way, a powerless man, frightened, fear-based person, even if he is given power, he will only be controlling it, he will not be expanding it. A person established in Completion, in the space of Completion, even if he does not have wealth, he knows how to create and live. A person based on Completion, even with the small powers which are available to him, he knows how to enrich people with power. Enriching people with power!
I am telling you, constantly empower yourself!
Constantly empower yourself!
Constantly empower yourself!
Have power and go on empowering people with power. And, I tell you, in which ever field you empower people, you will only become more and more powerful. Only by producing more musicians, you will become a great musician. Only by producing more dancers, you will become a great dancer! Only by producing more doctors, you will become a great doctor! Only by producing more rich people, you will become a richer person! Only by producing more leaders, you will be a great leader! Only by producing more enlightened beings, you will be an INCARNATION!
Empowering people! Empowering people! Empowering can happen only if you feel powerful, complete inside. If you feel incomplete, empowering does not happen.
I tell you, life has no hypocrisy!
Life has no hypocrisy!
Life has no hypocrisy!
I think, this is the punch-statement for all of you today! Meditate! Meditate! Meditate! Life has no hypocrisy!
Means, when you are authentic in empowering people, you will become more powerful.
When you are authentic enriching people, you will be more enriched.
‘No, no, no! I will believe all this, but practically, I know, if I make him big, he will become big and I will become small!’ This hypocrisy will only make you smaller and smaller, because, life responds in an authentic way, life has no hypocrisy.
Whatever field you may choose, whatever good things you may have, it can be as simple as one hand rice to as much as the knowledge about different fields, whatever you may have, empowering, enriching, makes you more and more enriched, empowered. If you are a businessman, support as many people as possible to become businessmen; you will become a great businessman! If you are a musician, support as many people as possible to become musicians; you will become a great musician! In any field, only a Completion-based person will feel that empowering others, enriching others, enriches himself, empowers himself. An incompletion-based person will continuously possess.
I tell you, life has no hypocrisy! Life has no hypocrisy! “LIFE HAS NO HYPOCRISY”! I really wanted all of you, all the devotees, to type this statement at least eleven times in your Facebook as a status and share it with all, because, this key needs to be applied in every nook and corner of your life. If I just make this one statement as a cognition for all my kids, I am done! I am just done! If you possess out of greed, you will neither own nor live. If you control out of fear, you will neither have power, you won’t even have the people whom you are controlling under you! And, if you share out of richness, you will have more and more. If you empower out of powerfulness, you will have more and more powers. Life has no hypocrisy, understand?
I have always seen, these disciples who are sincere, honest, standing up for empowering, enriching powerfully, they are showered so much! They always come back and say, ‘Swamiji, gratitude! Swamiji, I am grateful!’ And, people who try to possess, inside themselves deeply they feel that insecurity and poverty, and powerlessness, incompletion. How much ever they try to act outside, the hypocrisy is clearly studied by life, and life responds to them exactly as they are.
