Sadhguru at Berkeley Haas | Leader Is a Fool


GOOD EVENING, I AM THE DEAN AT
THE HAAS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS. WELCOME TO TODAY’S DEAN SPEAKER
SERIES. WE ARE JOINED TODAY BY SADHGURU,
FOUNDER OF THE ISHA FOUNDATION.
[INAUDIBLE] HE HAS CREATED A WORLDWIDE
MOVEMENT DEDICATED TO ADDRESSING ALL ASPECTS OF HUMAN
DEVELOPMENT. SADHGURU PROMOTED SEVERAL
PROJECTS FOR SOCIAL REVITALIZATION AND EDUCATION AND
THE ENVIRONMENT AND TRULY INFLUENCING OTHERS BEYOND
YOURSELF. ALSO, JOINING US IS ERICA PENG,
LECTURER AND CAREER COACH FROM HERE AT HAAS.
THE COURSE INTERPERSONAL SKILLS WAS HIGH LIGHTED AS ONE OF THE
BEST CLASSES FOR 2018 MBA GRADUATES.
[APPLAUSE] SHE’S ALSO AN EXECUTIVE COACH
WORKING WITH INDIVIDUALS AND TEAMS TO BREAK FREE FROM
UNCONSCIOUS BELIEFS AND BEHAVIORS TO ORDER TO MANIFEST
POTENTIAL. IT WAS THROUGH ERICA’S
SUGGESTION, THAT SAID SADHGURU IS BROUGHT HERE TODAY.
SO THANK YOU, ERICA. PLEASE JOIN ME IN WELCOMING
SADHGURU AND ERICA PENG. – THANK YOU, ANN.
GETTING TO THIS MOMENT HAS TAKEN A YEAR AND A HALF TO TWO YEARS
AND AS I STAND OUT AND LOOK AT ALL OF YOU HERE AND BEING
TOGETHER, I AM BEYOND THRILLED AND SADHGURU SO HONORED THAT YOU
ARE WITH US. ONE OF THE MANY THINGS THAT I
APPRECIATE ABOUT SADHGURU HE’S REALLY FUNNY.
HE TELLS A LOT OF STORIES. SOME ARE FUNNY THAT I DON’T GET
THEM. SO I WANT TO SHARE A SHORT STORY
BEFORE INVITING HIM UP HERE.
I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE A SIGNIFICANT PERSON WHO PLAY ADD
ROLE IN THAT, AND THAT PERSON IS SUSAN, SHE’S MY NEIGHBOR AND
LONG TIME VOLUNTEER OF SADHGURU’S ORGANIZATION.
ANOTHER FUNNY THING WHEN I MEET PEOPLE, SHE WAS A LIFESAVER AND LIVES
DOWN TO STREET AND SHE WOULD COOK AND BRING GROCERIES AND
HELP WITH THE GARDEN AND TAKE CARE OF MY CAT AND IN MY
MOMENTS, MY BELOVED CAT. IN MY MOMENTS OF DISSTRESS WE
ARE OVERWHELMED. SHE WOULD ALSO KEEP ENCOURAGING
PEOPLE. IN ONE OF THE MOMENTS SUSAN
SUGGESTED THE I EXPLORE A DAILY PRACTICE SHE LEARNED FROM
SADHGURU. SHE THOUGHT IT WOULD HELP ME.
SO MY FIRST THOUGHT I HAVE A DAILY PRACTICE THAT I LOVE AND
TEACH IT IN MY CLASS.
I HEARD HER TALK ABOUT HIM. I HAVE TAKEN CARE OF HER CAT.
I THOUGHT, WOW, ANOTHER INDIAN GURU, LIKE THERE ARE SO MANY.
AND I AM SO BUSY I CAN BARELY KEEP IT TOGETHER.
I’M GOING TO BE THERE AND VOLUNTEER.
I THOUGHT I JUST CAN’T, I CAN’T AFFORD TO TAKE 3 OR 4 DAYS TO
INVEST MY TIME IN THIS GUY. SO I THANKED HER.
FAST FORWARD JANUARY 31ST, 2018, I GOT AN EMAIL THE ASSISTANT
SENIOR DEAN OF INSTRUCTION AND THE EMAIL HAD A LINK TO THE THAT
YOU CAN THAT SADHGURU GAVE.
I THOUGHT IT WAS SOMEONE TO INVITE TO HAVE TALK AT HAAS.
I WAS STUNNED.
WHATEVER I’M DOING AT THAT MOMENT, I STOPPED AND I NEED TO
WATCH AND CLICK ON THE LINK. I WAS SURPRISED AND IMPRESSED BY SADHGURU’S ELEGANCE.
THIS GUY IS KIND OF LEGITIMATE.
AND I IMMEDIATELY THEN STARTED CLICKING ON THE YouTube VIDEOS
AND DOING THE GOOGLE SEARCH.
I WANT TO SHOW YOU A SHORT VIDEO GIVING YOU A SAMPLING OF WHAT I
DISCOVERED IN THE GOOGLE SEARCH THAT DAY AND WHO IS THIS GUY
SADHGURU AND WHAT IS HE DOING IN THE WORLD.
– IN THE NEXT HALF HOUR YOU ARE MEETING A MAN — [INAUDIBLE] THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE MOMENT AND
THE IMPORTANT THING IS BRINGING THE SPIRIT AND [INAUDIBLE] I’M NOW IN THE LAST YEARS — BECAUSE THIS IS DESIGNED TO GIVE THEM [INAUDIBLE]
THE LEADERSHIP ACADEMY AND CREATING LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS. [INAUDIBLE] – WE ARE LAUNCHING A CAMPAIGN IN
THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER. THIS SPECIAL SLIDE — [INAUDIBLE]
– SO THAT IS WHEN I DECIDED TO GO TO APRIL TRAINING.
IT BECAME MY DAILY PRACTICE. IT IS TAKING ALMOST TWO YEARS
AND HELP ME WELCOME SADHGURU.
– WE CAN GO ON THE FLOOR, IF YOU WANT. YOU ARE DOING SO MUCH IN THE
WORLD, I AM SO GRATEFUL, I DON’T KNOW ESPECIALLY WHOSE LEADERSHIP
EXPANSES, THE INNER ENGINEERING TRAINING THAT YOU ARE DOING, AND
MY UNDERSTAND SOMETHING THE BELIEF THAT IN ORDER TO BE
EFFECTIVE OUT THERE IN THE WORLD AND TO HAVE IMPACT WE HAVE TO
GET A HANDLE ON THE ACTIVITY AND COME PULLIVE AND IMPULSE.
IT COULD BE EASY TO TALK ABOUT THE THINGS THAT YOU ARE DOING IN
THE WORLD, I WANT TO HONOR I THINK THE MESSAGE THAT YOU ARE
PUTTING OUT THERE. I WANTED TO START WITH THE
INTERNAL REALM. SO I WONDERED IF YOU CAN SHARE
SOME CONCRETE EXAMPLES FROM YOUR OWN LIFE WHEN YOU ARE OUT THERE
AT THE NATIONAL GLOBAL LEVEL WHAT ARE THE MOMENTS THAT YOU
ARE DRAWING IN TERMS OF YOUR INTERNAL STATE?
YOU HAVE DO A DAILY PRACTICE OR MULTIPLE ONES AND HOW DOES THAT
WORK IN YOUR LIFE?
– GOOD AFTERNOON. OBJECTIZATION, WHERE DOES IT
COME FROM. THERE ARE MANY PLACES. OBJECTIVITY, PUSHING ON THINGS THAT WE DO.
NOW WHEN YOU SAY GLOBAL, IF I WALK DOWN THE STREET, IT IS
SPRINGTIME, IT IS WONDERFUL.
SOMEBODY BECOMES GOOD, BAD, SOMETHING BECOMES BEAUTIFUL,
UGLY, LOW, HIGH. THIS IS THE BASIS OF HOW HUMANITY CRIPPLES A CHILD.
IF YOU ARE WILLING, YOU KNOW THIS MUCH.
THE IDEA OF WHO YOU ARE, YOUR INDIVIDUALISM IS A CYCLE.
THE SYSTEM IN WHICH WE EXIST IS [INDISCERNIBLE] JUST A SPECK.
TOMORROW MORNING NOBODY WILL NOTICE IT.
IN THAT SPECK, PLANET EARTH IS A MICRO SPECK, IN THAT MICK ROW
SPECK IS A MICRO SPECK, AND SAN FRANCISCO IS A SUPER, SUPER
MICRO SPECK.
IT IS IN THE WRONG CONTEXT THAT PEOPLE ARE LOOKING AT EVERYTHING
AND MAKING IT SO DIFFICULT FOR THEMSELVES.
MOST HUMAN BEINGS ARE CAPABLE OF SITTING IN ONE PLACE WITHOUT HELP.
IF I SIT HERE ALONE AND SUFFER, BAD COMPANY, WE ARE TRYING TO
FIX EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD. SO ALL THE TIME THAT IS
HAPPENING, THERE ARE GOOD INTENTION BUT GOOD INTENTION IS
A MESSY E THING. MORE HORRIBLE THINGS HAPPEN ON
THIS PLANET WITH GOOD INTENTIONS THAN BAD INTENTIONS.
YES THE SO-CALLED EVIL, IT IS PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THEY ARE
REALLY GOOD PEOPLE THEY ARE THE PEOPLE CAUSING MAXIMUM DAMAGE
BECAUSE WE ARE GOOD IN A CONTEXTUAL WAY.
SOMEBODY IS A GOOD AMERICAN, GOOD INDIANS, .
GOOD AMERICANS ARE FIGHTING WITH ABOUT ANYBODY.
CHRISTIANS ARE FIGHTING WITH SOMEBODY, GOOD MUSLIMS ARE FIGHTING SOMEBODY ELSE.
SO THE THING THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN IN THE HUMAN BEING —
YOUR MIND AND STRUCTURE OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SPACE SHOULD BE COMPLEMENTARY, IF YOU
THINK ABOUT IT, YOU CAN’T EXIST HERE ALL BY YOURSELF, YOU ARE
EXISTING AS PART OF EVERYTHING ELSE.
YOU ARE A SMALL PART OF THE PLANET.
A COUNTLESS NUMBER OF PEOPLE BEING HERE.
SO YOUR EXISTENCE HERE IS RELATED TO EVERYTHING IN THE
UNIVERSE. BUT YOUR PSYCHOLOGICAL STRUCTURE
IS NOT RELATED TO ANYTHING.
INTELLIGENCE WORKS AROUND — THIS IS THE NATURE OF ONCE
INTELLECT. WORK AROUND YOUR IDENTITY. NOW, ONE MORE FUNDAMENTAL PIECE,
OUR EDUCATION SYSTEMS, I’M SORRY IN A UNIVERSITY, I DIDN’T GO
WHEN I HAD TO GO. SO OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM RIGHT
FROM KINDERGARTEN HAVE FOCUSSED ON ONE DEFINITION OF HUMAN INTELLIGENCE, WHICH IS
INTELLECT. YOUR INTELLECT CANNOT FUNCTION
WITHOUT A MEMORY BANK. IF YOU WIPE OUT YOUR MEMORY, YOU
DON’T KNOW ANYTHING. OUR SYSTEMS OF EDUCATION ARE
MISUNDERSTANDING THAT MEMORY IS INTELLIGENCE.
BUT TODAY WITH TECHNOLOGY, YOU KNOW, A SMALL CHIP HOLDS MORE
MEMORY THAT YOUR ENTIRE BRAIN CAN HOLD.
WELL IN THE NEXT FIVE TO TEN YEARS TIME ARTIFICIAL
INTELLIGENCE IS COMING IN A BIG WAY. HAVING A MEMORY BANK KNOWING AND
UNDERSTANDING THAT, A MACHINE CAN DO BETTER THAN YOU.
WE HAVE GONE THROUGH THIS FIVE TO TEN GENERATIONS HAVE GONE BY
WHERE WE HAVE MISUNDERSTOOD THAT MEMORY IS INTELLIGENCE.
OTHERWISE YOU WOULD FEEL LIKE A FOOL WHEN — DOING BET THAN YOU.
SO HUMAN INTELLIGENCE IS NOT LIMITED TO MEMORY.
WHAT WE HAVE GATHERED IS FINE. WE HAVE GATHERED MASS IN TERMS
OF BODY, IMPRESSIONS, MEMORY, WHAT WE HAVE GATHERED IS FINE.
WE CAN USE IT. BUT RIGHT NOW INSTEAD OF USING
IT WE HAVE BECOME THAT. THAT IS WHERE THE CONFUSION IE
RAISES. I CAN SAY THIS IS MY CUP.
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH HIM. WHY IS HE CLAIMING THE CUP IS
HIS. I SAY THIS IS ME.
YOU WOULD SAY LET’S GO. HELLO.
BECAUSE THE MOMENT I SAY THIS IS ME, SO RIGHT NOW THE
FOOD ON YOUR PLATE IS YOUR FOOD. THE MOMENT YOU EAT IT BECOMES
YOU. THIS IS A CASE.
BECAUSE WE HAVE LOST THE DISTINCTION OF WHAT IS ME AND
WHAT IS MINE. WE ARE MIXED UP.
PEOPLE THINK THAT EMOTIONS — NO,- IT IS SUBJECTIVE, ANALYZE,
USE, YOU CAN THROW IT AROUND.
SO BECOME WHEN INTELLIGENCE IS BEYOND MEMORY BECOMES A LIVING
EXPERIENCE FOR YOU. THIS INTELLIGENCE — SO RIGHT
NOW, — [INDISCERNIBLE] [INDISCERNIBLE] IF I TOOK A LEAF
IN MY HAND AND TURNED IT INTO A HUMAN BEING, WHO DO YOU THINK I
AM? HELLO.
HUH. CREATOR HIMSELF.
ARE YOU NOT DOING THIS IN YOUR STOMACH EVERY DAY, TURNING A
PIECE OF BREAD INTO HUMAN BEING.
THE QUESTION IS ONLY [INDISCERNIBLE]
THERE IS WIFI HERE.
THERE IS A PHENOMENAL INTELLIGENCE HERE, WHICH IS NOT
ABOUT MEMORY. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO MEMORY.
WE MUST UNDERSTAND THAT MEMORY IS A STRUCTURE AND IT IS USEFUL
FOR OUR SURVIVAL. WE REMEMBER SO MANY THINGS, OUR
FRIENDS, OUR NEIGHBOR, ALL THIS. THIS IS USEFUL.
BUT THE STRUCTURE OF MEMORY IS A BOUNDARY OF THIS MY FRIEND, THIS
IS A PERSON THAT I LIKE, THIS IS A PERSON I DON’T LIKE, THIS IS
GOOD GUY, THIS IS A BAD GUY. THIS IS ALL IN YOUR MEMORY.
MEMORY IS A BOUNDARY. THE ONLY BOUNDARY THAT YOU HAVE
ARE THE BOUNDARIES OF YOUR MEMORY.
YES OR NO. WHAT I KNOW AND WHAT I DO NOT
KNOW. THE ONLY THING IS JUST THIS,
THAT YOU ARE DIFFERENTIATING BETWEEN THE THINGS YOU KNOW AND
DON’T KNOW. IF YOU LOOK AT IT IN THESE
TERMS, WHAT YOU KNOW IS MINUSCULE COMPARED TO THE SPACE.
HELLO. IS IT OKAY?
MAYBE YOU THINK OTHERWISE. IF YOU ARE IDENTIFYING WITH THIS
MINUSCULE, YOU BECOME THAT. WHATEVER YOU IDENTIFY WITH, YOU
BECOME THAT. WHATEVER YOU ARE STRONGLY
IDENTIFY WITH YOU ACTUALLY BECOME THAT.
IF YOU IDENTIFY WITH THIS TINY KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE, YOU
WILL BECOME THAT. SO WE ALWAYS TRAIN PEOPLE TO
IDENTIFY WITH THEIR IGNORANCE, BECAUSE IGNORANCE IS BOUNDLESS.
HELLO. IT IS NOT BOUND BY MEMORY.
MEMORY IS A LIMITED CONTENT. YOU CAN INCREASE IT, YOU CAN
MAKE IT BIG, BUT IT IS SMALL. BECAUSE AS YOU SIT HERE
EVERYTHING IS CREATION IS WORKING FOR YOU OR WORKING
AGAINST YOU RIGHT NOW. ISN’T IT.
IS IT WORKING FOR YOU OR NOT? EVERYTHING IS WORKING FOR YOU.
IF YOU DON’T KNOW THIS. [INDISCERNIBLE]
SO THEY ARE ALL WORKING FOR US, AND SOME WORKING FOR THEM.
ALL RIGHT. EVERYTHING IS WORKING FOR
EVERYTHING, BECAUSE THIS IS NOT A TRANSECTIONAL UNIVERSE.
THIS IS AN HOMOGENEOUS MAKING.
IT IS NOT A TRICK YOU PLAY WITH YOURSELF.
THERE ARE PRACTICES TO BREAK THROUGH LIMITATIONS.
BUT THE IMPORTANT THING IS YOU LEARN FROM OBJECT VISION THAT
YOU HAVE CAUSED WITH YOUR INTELLECT. WOULD YOU LIKE YOUR INTELLECT TO
BE SHARP OR BLUNT? SHARP.
SO IT IS A CUTTING INSTRUMENT. IT IS LIKE A KNIFE, THE SHARPER
IT IS, THE BETTER IT IS. IF YOU USE A KNIFE TO CUT
SOMETHING, IT WORKS WELL. SUPPOSE YOU WANT TO STITCH YOUR
CLOTHES, YOU USE A KNIFE. OF COURSE, THAT IS THE REASON
PEOPLE ARE WORKING AROUND IN —
BECAUSE YOU ARE USING A SHARP INSTRUMENT TO DO EVERYTHING. WHICH IS DEEPER DAMAGE THAN
PERCEPTION. IF USE YOUR INTELLECT ONLY IT IS
CLOUDED BY THE MEMORY. SO LEARNING FROM MEMORY BASED
FUNCTION, WHICH IS ALWAYS JUDGMENTAL, FROM MY MEMORY, I
KNOW THIS PERSON IS LIKE THIS OR LIKE THAT.
FROM WHERE, THE PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE.
THAT MEANS I CAN’TS EXPERIENCE, BEING AT THE BUSINESS SCHOOL
MEANS A LEADER ESSENTIALLY, SOMEONE ABLE TO SEE SOMETHING.
BECAUSE LEADERSHIP PLACES YOU ON A PERCH.
IF YOU ARE ON A HIGHER PERCH THAN OTHER PEOPLE, AND YOU
DON’TED SEE ANY BETTER YOU BECOME AN OBJECT OF RIDICULE.
THIS IS A DANGERS OF LEADERSHIP. IF YOU SIT ON A PERCH YOU ARE
SUPPOSED TO SEE BETTER THAN OTHERS AND EVERYONE IS LOOKING
UP TO YOU. IF YOU DON’T SEE BETTER THAN
OTHERS YOU MAKE A FOOL OF YOURSELF.
SO SITTING UP THERE MEANS THAT YOU ARE SITTING AROUND YOUR OWN
GATHERED MEMORY. YOU ARE LIKE A CAPTAIN OF A
SHIP. THE CREW IS WORKING HARD.
YOU ARE STARING UP. IF YOU DON’T STEER GOOD ENOUGH
EVERYONE WILL DROWN. THE CAPTAIN OF IS DRESSED RIGHT,
ALL HE DOES IS STARE OUT. THAT MEANS HE’S SUPPOSED TO SEE
BETTER THAN OTHERS CAN SEE. THAT IS LEADERSHIP.
[LAUGHTER] >> I GOT PERMISSION TO
INTERRUPT YOU, BUT YOU STOPPED YOURSELF, THAT IS REALLY GOOD.
[LAUGHTER] – SO I WANT TO BUILD ON THAT,
CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT. I WANT TO BUILD ON THAT.
I WANT TO SHARE A SLIDE. BECAUSE I THINK WHAT YOU ARE
TALKING ABOUT IS — I AM HEARING YOU SAY IS HOW DO
WE SEE WHAT WE DON’T SEE. THAT IS A QUESTION THAT IS WHY
WE HAVE SUCH PROBLEMS TODAY. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WE DON’T SEE.
LOOK AT THIS PHOTO OR SLIDE, WHAT DO YOU SEE?
WHAT DO YOU SEE?
SO SOME PEOPLE SEE THE BUTTERFLY, AND SOME PEOPLE SEE
THE SPACE. SO I THINK WHAT I HEAR YOU SAY
IS WE NEED TO QUESTION WHAT WE PERCEIVE AND WHAT WE SEE.
BUT THE PROBLEM IS THAT WE DON’T LEARN IN OUR EDUCATION HOW TO DO
THAT. THERE ARE CERTAIN ASSUMPTIONS
THAT WE MAKE THAT WE TAKE AS TRUTH.
SO I’M WONDERING IF WE ARE TALKING ABOUT BUSINESS AND
LEADERSHIP, WHAT ARE SOME OF THE, WHAT ARE TWO OR THE THREE
KEY LEMENTS — ELEMENTS THAT WE ARE TAKING
FOR GRANTED OR TAKING FOR TRUTH AND WE NEED TO TAKE A DIFFERENT
PERSPECTIVE OR WHOLISTIC PERSPECTIVE.
WHAT ARE TWO OR THREE THINGS WE NEED TO QUESTION AND CHALLENGE
OR MAYBE TRANSFORM? – THERE IS ONE THING MANAGEMENT
AND LEADERSHIP. MANAGEMENT MEANS IT IS GLORIFIED HOUSEKEEPING. YES.
EXISTING SITUATIONS MAYBE LARGE, SMALL, SOMETHING, YOU ARE
MANAGING IT. LEADERSHIP MEANS YOU ARE
EXPECTED TO SEE AND CREATE SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE ARE
WILLING TO PUT THEIR LIVES INTO YOUR HANDS BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE
YOU CAN MAKE THEM ACHIEVE SOMETHING THAT THEY WOULDN’T DO
BY THEMSELVES. THAT MEANS YOU ARE GOING — ONLY
THEN PEOPLE GATHER BEHIND A LEADER.
ELECTED LEADERS ARE DIFFERENT. BUT IF LEADERSHIP HAS TO HAPPEN
WITHOUT EFFORT IN SUCH A WAY YOU DON’T FEEL EVERY DAY.
YOU ARE A BIGGERING POSSIBILITY THAN THEY ARE.
BEING WITH THEM BIGGER THINGS WILL HAPPEN WITH YOU.
LEADERSHIP IS A NATURAL PROCESS. OTHERWISE YOU ARE TRYING TO A
LEADER. I THINK THAT IS WHY, I WROTE, BECAUSE SO MUCH IS
HAPPENING IN THE WORLD.
WHEN I WANT TO CREATE SOMETHING NEW, ONE EXAMPLE IS —
[INDISCERNIBLE] IN 30 DAYS TIME WE GOT THE 162 MILLION PEOPLE. IN JUST A FEW DAYS TIME.
IN 30 DAYS I WAS DRIVING NINE THOUSAND KILOMETERS I
DROVE. EVERYONE HAD A STARE DRIVER TO
DRIVE. IN THESE 30 DAYS, 142 — AND 184 INTERVIEWS WITH THE —
IN THE TWO MONTHS [INDISCERNIBLE] YOU ARE COVERED
MORE THAN THE PRIME MINISTER OF THE COUNTRY.
THIS HAPPENED ALL IN ABOUT 59 DAYS.
IT HAS BEEN ON MY MIND FOR 15 YEARS BUT I NEVER ARTICULATED
THIS. ONLY 59 DAYS AHEAD OF THE RALLY
I TOLD THE CLOSEST TEAM AROUND ME TO DO THIS.
THIS IS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN.
MANY OF THE PLACES WE DON’T HAVE — HOW DID THIS HAPPEN.
HOW DID THIS HAPPEN.
SO ONCE IT IS SET IN YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS, EVERYBODY WILL
JUST DO WHAT I WANT THEM TO DO. PEOPLE THAT I KNOW AND DO NOT
KNOW. EVERY HUMAN BEING IS DOING THIS
TO SOME EXTENT BUT NOT ENOUGH. OR TO SAY CLEANING UP.
EVERY DAY YOU PICK UP MEMORIES, EVERYTHING THAT YOU SEE, AND
EVERYTHING THAT YOU HEAR TASTE AND TOUCH AND EXPERIENCES,
WORDS, YOU ARE PICKING UP MEMORY, STAY PURE OF THAT MEMORY
AND KEEP THE MEMORY ASSIGNED.
THERE ARE MANY PROCESSES ONE CAN LEARN.
IF YOU JUST DO THIS ONE THING, IF YOU KNOW HOW TO SIT HERE
WITHOUT BEING A MAN, WITHOUT BEING A WOMAN, WITHOUT BEING AN
INDIAN OR AN AMERICAN, YOU JUST SIT HERE, YOU ARE READY TO DO LIFE.
WHAT IS THE DIFFICULTY OF YOUR LIFE.
IF YOU HAVE TO MAKE A DEAD MAN WALK, IT IS VERY DIFFICULT.
LIVING IS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM. EVERYTHING IS A PROBLEM.
MID LIFE CRISIS. WHEN IS IT GOOD?
THIS IS NOT BECAUSE THE PROBLEM OF LIFE. THIS IS A PROBLEM OF
YOU NOT BEING ABLE TO HANDLE YOUR OWN INTELLIGENCE.
IF YOU HAVE THE BRAIN OF — YOU WOULD BE PEACEFUL AND WONDERFUL.
YOUR OWN CAPABILITIESES YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO HANDLE.
YOU LIVE IN CALIFORNIA AND [INDISCERNIBLE] WHEN AUR MONKEY YOU DON’T DESIRE
TO BECOME A HUMAN BEING. IT IS BEAUTIFUL LY EXPRESSED.
HE SAID THE MOST SIGNIFICANT ASPECT OF BEING HUMANESE IS FOR
THE FIRST TIME OF THE LEVELS OF LIFE, FOR THE FIRST TIME
EVOLUTION IS IN YOUR HANDS. WHETHER YOU WANT TO EVOLVE
FORWARD, BACK WARD, WHAT PACE, THIS IS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT
THING THAT IS EVER SAID ABOUT A HUMAN BEING THAT YOUR EVOLUTION
IS IN YOUR HANDS. IF YOU WANT TO EVOLVE AND BECOME GOD-LIKE, IT IS POSSIBLE. WHEN EVOLUTION IS IN YOUR HANDS,
IT IS A RESPONSIBILITY.
WHEN YOU ARE A MONKEY NATURE IS CUTTING YOUR TAIL.
NATURE IS DOING THE THINGS FOR YOU, IT IS OKAY.
BUT NOW IT IS IN YOUR HANDS. IT IS A TREMENDOUS PRIVILEGE.
ALL THE HUMAN PROBLEM IS JUST THIS.
BECAUSE HUMAN — WHEN IT IS A POSSIBILITY AND
YOUR DON’T HARNESS IS POSSIBILITY.
SUPPOSE YOU HAVE HALF YOUR BRAIN, NO PROBLEM, YOU ARE
PEACEFUL AND FANTASTIC. BUT NO POSSIBILITIES.
– TELL US WHAT WE DO THEN. –
– I MUST TELL YOU THIS.
IT HAPPENED TO ME, I WAS RIGHT FROM MY CHILDHOOD I HAVE BEEN A
CHILD OF MILLION QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS.
NOTHING ANYBODY SAID MADE ANY SENSE TO ME.
THERE ARE PEOPLE, POLITICAL PEOPLE, PRINCIPALS AND PARENTS.
THEY DIDN’T MAKE SENSE TO ME. WHEN YOU MARKET YOUR SENSE TO
SOMETHING, YOU ARE [INDISCERNIBLE] YES.
IF IT IS GENDER, RACE, RELIGION, SENSE IS THE MOST SENSELESS
THING. BUT YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE
SENSIBLE. SO THE SIGNIFICANT ASPECT IS
JUST THIS I GREW UP SLOWLY FIGURED OUT A FEW THINGS AND I
STARTED A REALLY HALF DOZEN OF BUSINESSES IN FOUR AND A HALF
YEARS AND BECOME SUCCESSFUL. EVERYONE IS CLAPPING THEIR
HANDS. MOST PEOPLE IN THAT TIME — I’M A SMART YOUNG MAN AND
COCKY AND GOING AROUND. – ON A MOTORCYCLE.
– YEP. I’M STILL ON IT.
SO ONE AFTERNOON I WENT UP A SMALL HILL.
A LITTLE HILL IN THE MIDDLE OF A TOWN WHERE IF YOU WANT TO TEST
OUT A MOTORCYCLES WE GO UP THIS HILL.
IF YOU WANT TO PARTY, WE GO UP THIS HILL.
IF YOU WANT TO FALL IN LOVE WE GO UP THIS HILL.
IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO DO, WE GO UP THE HILL.
ONE AFTERNOON I WAS DOING BUSINESS AND SIMPLY NOT THINKING
ABOUT IT, I WENT UP TO HILL. I KNOW THIS PLACE VERY WELL.
I KNOW THIS HILL VERY WELL. SO I WENT ON A WALK.
I REALIZED EVERYTHING THAT I THOUGHT WAS SMART WAS STUPID. IDIOT OF THE HIGHEST ORDER.
I DIDN’T KNOW A THING. EVERYTHING IS A PRESUMPTION.
EVERYTHING THAT YOU THINK IS SIGNS, SOCIAL, EVERYTHING THAT
YOU LEARN FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD, IT IS OKAY FOR SURVIVAL, IT IS
JUST ALL RUBBISH. YOU DON’T KNOW A THING. I STOOD THERE, MY BODY WAS DRIPPING,- EVERYTHING IS JUST ABSOLUTELY
FANTASTIC. ABOUT SIX WEEKS LATER, I DECIDED
I MADE A PLAN THAT IN TWO AND A HALF YEARS TIME I WOULD MAKE THE
WHOLE WORLD ECSTATIC. I REALLY MADE A PLAN IN TWO AND
A HALF HERES TIME. IF PEOPLE JUST LEARNED TO SIT
HERE, THEY’LL BECOME ECSTATIC. EVERYBODY CAN LIVE ECSTATICALLY. YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED HOW
COMMITTED THEY ARE TO THE MISERIES.
BECAUSE THE PEACEFULNESS WAS NEVER SO PROFOUND.
[INDISCERNIBLE] THEY ARE ALWAYSS A PRIORING SOMETHING PROFOUND
SHOULD HAPPEN TO THEM. FALL IN LOVE, TAKE A DRUG, JUMP
FROM A MOUNTAIN. SOMETHING PROFOUND SHOULD
HAPPEN. HELLO.
SOMETHING SHOULD HAPPEN TO ME. MAN IS GOING TO THE TEMPLE, A
MAN IS GOING TO THE BAR, THEY ARE SEEKING THE SAME THING.
SAME DESIRE OR NO. SAME DESIRE.
THE QUESTION IS ONLY IS IT WORKING OR NOT WORKING.
EVERYTHING SEEMS TO WORK IN A LIMITED WAY AND NEXT DAY YOU
HAVE A HANGOVER OF BOTH KINDS. YOU KNOW.
IT IS JUST THIS HUMAN EXPERIENCE IS FROM WITHIN YOU.
YOUR JOY AND MISERY ONLY HAPPENS WITHIN YOU.
DID YOU EXPERIENCE JOY OUT HERE. OF COURSE, ESPECIALLY IN THE
UNIVERSITIES IT IS IN THE AIR. ALL RIGHT.
NO? LOVE HAPPEN OR HATE HAPPEN.
IT HAPPENS WITHIN YOU. HUMAN EXPERIENCE CAN ONLY COME WITH YOU.
WE ARE TALKING ABOUT BUSINESS, IN SOME WAYS, BUSINESS,
LEADERSHIP, IN SOME WAY YOU WANT TO MANAGE AND LEAD SAY A
THOUSAND MINDS, FIRST QUESTION IS IS YOUR BLOODY MIND TAKING
INSTRUCTIONS FROM YOU? HELLO.
IF YOUR MIND IS TAKING INSTRUCTIONS FROM YOU AND YOUR
TALK AND EMOTIONS ARE THE WAY YOU WANT THEM RIGHT NOW.
I WAS STRESSED OUT, YOU CALL IT STRESS, TENSION, MISERY,
MADNESS, ESSENTIALLY IT IS JUST TURNED AGAINST YOU.
THAT IS ALL. YOUR INTELLIGENCE TURNED AGAINST
YOU. THE PROBLEM IS YOU ARE OUT TO
CONQUER IS WORLD. DON’T TAKE INSTRUCTIONS FROM
YOU, HOW THE HELL ARE YOU GOING TO CONQUER ANYTHING.
WHATEVER WE HAVE TOUCHED ON THIS PLANET, WE HAVE MADE A MESS OUT
OF IT. HELLO.
WHATEVER WE THOUGHT WE CONQUERED WE MADE A MESS OUT OF IT.
ONLY THAT WHICH YOU CANNOT CONQUER IS DOING GOOD.
IT COULD BE YOUR SPOUSE, IT COULD BE YOUR CHILDREN.
YOU ARE NOT GOING TO CONQUER THEM THEY ARE DOING GOOD.
WHEN YOU CONQUER THEM THEY ARE FINISHED. IT IS JUST THIS, WE ARE — LOOK WHAT IS THE NEED.
THIS ENTIRE THING WILL CHANGE. IT IS ALMOST LIKE WE ARE NOT
JUST HUMAN BEINGS. IF I LOOK AT THE SYSTEM, I THINK
IT LOOKS LIKE A STRUCTURE THAT HAS NO INTEREST IN THE HUMAN
BEING. BUT RIGHT NOW YOU MUST
UNDERSTAND YOU KNOW THE UNIVERSE IS ONLY WAY IT HAPPENS.
THE SCIENTISTS DO IN MANY WAYS THE UNIVERSE IS NOT THE WAY YOU
THINK IT IS. HELLO. IT TOOK A LONG TIME TO REALIZE,
IT IS NOT THE WAY YOU SEE IT. SO RIGHT NOW THIS INVESTMENT ON
THE INDIVIDUAL HUMAN BEING IS NOT MADE BY THE EDUCATIONAL
SYSTEMS. I THINK IN THE BUSINESS SCHOOL
WE SHOULD DO THAT, WE MUST — WHY I’M SPENDING LAST 20 YEARS A
LOT OF TIME WITH THE BUSINESS LEADERS, AND IN THE WORLD AND
BUSINESS SCHOOLS ACROSS THE WORLD, SEE THERE WAS A TIME 500
YEARS AGO IF YOU LOOK BACK THE RELIGIOUS LEADERSHIP WAS THE
MOST POWER LEADERSHIP IN THE WORLD.
AS THE MILITARY MACHINES GOT BIGGER, THE MILITARY LEADERSHIP
BECAME THE MOST SIGNIFICANT ON THE PLANET.
WHEN THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS CAME IN, DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED
LEADERS BECAME THE MOST SIGNIFICANT LEADERS AND THE TIME
HAS COME, YOU WILL SEE ECONOMIC BUSINESS LEADERS THAT WILL DECIDE EVERYTHING.
A BUSINESSMAN BECAME YOUR PRESIDENT WITHOUT POLITICAL
BACKGROUND. YES?
WE ALSO THOUGHT A POLITICIAN MEANS HE MUST BE A LAWYER AND
UNDERSTAND THE CONSTITUTION, ME MUST DO THIS OR THAT, NOTHING
JUST RUNNING A BUSINESS AND BECOMES THE PRESIDENT.
BECAUSE THIS IS THE WORLD IS MOVING IN THIS DIRECTION THAT IT
IS THE BUSINESS WHICH WILL DECIDE THE FUTURE OF THIS
PLANET. SO IT IS VERY IMPORTANT BUSINESS
BECOMES A SENSIBLE PROCESS. RIGHT NOW, THERE IS RUSH AROUND
THE BUSINESS LEADERS THAT THEY ARE ONLY FOR THEIR OWN PERSONAL
PROFIT, THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT HUMANITY.
THIS TAG HAS TO GO AND WE HAVE TO SHOW BUSINESS LEADERS ARE IN
THEIR APPROACH AND CONCERNED ABOUT THE PLANET AND HUMANITY
AND EVERYTHING. THIS NEEDS TO BE ESTABLISHED.
SOMETHING OF THIS DIMENSION HAS TO HAPPEN IN EDUCATION. DID I SAY SOMETHING WRONG?
– NO, NO, I’M AMAZED AT YOU. WE MET A MONTH AGO IN LOS
ANGELES TO GO OVER THE QUESTIONS.
SADHGURU WOULDN’T GO OVER THEM. BUT YOU HAVE ANSWERED ALL MY
QUESTIONS. I HAVE ONE MORE QUESTION FOR
YOU. ON THIS NOTE OF WHERE WE ARE IN
BUSINESS TODAY AND HOW WE ARE ON AN A DESTRUCTIVE PATH, WE HAVE A
LOT OF LEADERS HERE, SOME ABOUT TO GRADUATE, SOME JUST BEGUN,
SOME IN THE PROCESS, GIVEN YOUR SCOPE IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING,
WHAT DO YOU SEE AS THE MOST PRESSING HUMAN ISSUE THAT YOU
ARE PUTTING YOUR ATTENTION ON, SO AS WE KNOW, WHAT DIRECTION
SHOULD WE BE HEADED IN AND WHAT SHOULD WE SEE THAT WE ARE NOT
SEEING? – WHEN YOU SAY WHAT YOU ARE
SAYING A LEADER IS SOMEBODY WHO HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO MESS WITH
OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES. SO WHEN PEOPLE ARE GIVING YOU
THIS PRIVILEGE THAT YOU CAN SHAPE A LIFE, IS IT NOT
IMPORTANT HOW YOU ARE — IF THINK THAT THE WORK YOU
ARE DOING IS IMPORTANT OR SIGNIFICANT, THE MOST THING IS
YOU WORK UPON YOURSELF. I SAY THE MINIMUM YOU CAN DO IS EDUCATION INSTITUTION LIKE
THIS, SPEND A MONTH IN TRANSFORMING THE WAY YOU ARE.
THE MORE AND MORE WE GET EMPOWERED, THE MORE AND MORE
DAMAGE IT COSTS. WHAT TEN THOUSAND MEN COULD DO A THOUSAND YEARS
AGO. THAT IS DOUBLING THE POPULATION,
ONLY MEN WERE CAUSING DAMAGE. NOW WOMEN JOINED THE GAME.
THAT IS DOUBLE IMPACT. SO WHAT TEN THOUSAND PEOPLE
COULD DO WHAT ONE PERSON COULD DO, HOW WE EVEN THINK MUST
CHANGE. IF YOU ARE A LITTLE ANT, YOU CAN GO, [INDISCERNIBLE]
DON’T STEP ON ME. RIGHT NOW EACH INDIVIDUAL
FOOTPRINT HAS BECOME SO BIG. I’M TALKING ABOUT THE IMPACT OF
ONE MAN OR HUMAN BEING CAN CREATE, IT IS SO BIG, WHEN IT IS
SO BIG, THEN HOW WE ARE IS IMPORTANT.
WHEN THEY SAY HOW WE ARE, ESSENTIALLY, IF YOU SINK YOUR PSYCHOLOGICAL STRUCTURE —
WE ARE ALL INCLUSIVE. RIGHT NOW IF YOU HIT THE PERSON
SITTING NEXT TO YOU, YOUR BODY DOESN’T HAVE PROBLEM.
YOU HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH ANYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE.
ONLY PSYCHOLOGICAL YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS PERSON, THAT
PERSON. IF YOUR MIND IS *N SYNC WITH THE
NATURE OF LIFE, YOU WILL BE NATURALLY IN TUNE WITH
EVERYTHING, AND EVERYTHING THAT YOU CREATE AND SHAPE WILL BE IN
TUNE WITH EVERYTHING ELSE. RIGHT NOW, THE ONLY PROBLEM THAT
HUMAN BEING HAS IS THAT ONE PERSON IS TRYING TO IMPOSE HIS
PSYCHOLOGICAL STRUCTURE ON THE OTHER PERSON, AND THAT PERSON IS
IMPOSING ON SOMEBODY ELSE, AND LET’S SEE, WE HAVE THIS ISSUE
WITH PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT GENERATIONAL GAP AND THIS AND
THAT, NO, THERE IS NO GAP, JUST ONE PERSON IS TRYING TO IMPOSE
THEIR PSYCHOLOGICAL BOUNDARIES ON SOMEBODY ELSE AND THEY ARE
TRYING TO IMPOSE ON SOMEBODY ELSE, THIS NONSENSE SHOULD STOP.
THIS IS NOT THE WAY TO CONDUCT OURSELVES.
THESE BOUNDARIES ARE ONLY EXISTING IN OUR MINDS. MOVING FROM WEST TO EAST.
SO MUCH IN THE COUNTRY ABOUT CERTAIN THINGS.
THE WIND IS COMING THIS WAY AND SO ACTUALLY NO PROBLEM.
ONLY PROBLEM IS HERE. ISN’T IT.
THE BOUNDARIES ARE ALL IN OUR MINDS.
THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT SAVING THE PLANET THIS THAT.
THIS IS ABOUT — THIS IS NOT A PSYCHOLOGICAL CASE, THEN
EVERYTHING THAT THIS ONE DOES WILL BE IN SYNC WITH EVERYTHING
ELSE. ABOVE ALL HUMAN GENIUS WILL
UNFOLD WHEN THERE IS NO FEAR OF SUFFERING, THAT MEANS [INDISCERNIBLE] WHEN NO FEAR OF
SUFFERING, ONLY THEN HUMAN GENIUS WILL UNFOLD.
HUMAN INTELLIGENCE IS SERIOUSLY CRIPPLED WITH ASSUMPTIONS THAT
ARE MADE AND POSITIONS THAT ARE TAKEN. IT IS BEGINNING TO HAPPEN
EVERYWHERE ELSE. THIS HAPPENED. I DIDN’T TREAT THEM WELL.
[LAUGHTER] HE SAID I WANT TO JOIN THE
DEMOCRATIC PARTY. HOW CAN YOU DO THIS.
YOUR FATHER WAS A REPUBLICAN, YOUR GRANDFATHER WAS A
REPUBLICAN HOW CAN YOU BECOME A DEMOCRAT.
I WOULD RATHER HAVE ONE OF THEM DYING.
I’M SAYING EVEN POLITICAL AFFIRMATIONS.
POLITICAL PARTIES SHOULDN’T HAVE MEMBERSHIP.
EVERY TIME PEOPLE WHO DECIDE WHICH WAY TO VOTE, IT IS NOT
REALISTIC. YOU ALREADY DECIDED ON DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN.
WHETHER THEY DESERVE ANOTHER CHANCE OR THEY NEED TO GO. WHAT IS THE POINT OF SECRET
BALLOT. THIS IS JUST TRIBAL MIND SET. [INDISCERNIBLE]
THEY ARE SETTING UP THEIR BOUNDARIES ALL OF THE TIME.
EVOLUTION IS BY YOUR CHOICE. IT IS YOUR CHOICE, THIS IS THE
GREATEST THAT WE HAVE AS A SPECIES.
YOU MUST EXERCISE THAT. TODAY’S BUSINESS STUDENTS ARE
TOMORROW’S LEADERS SHAPING THE PLANET’S FUTURE AND THE PEOPLE’S
FUTURE ON THIS PLANET BECAUSE THE BEST THING ABOUT BUSINESS IS
A BUSINESS PERSON REALLY JUST PEOPLE, [INDISCERNIBLE]
NATIONALITIES AGAINST EACH OF THE ENDLESS RACE, RELIGION
NATIONALITY, BUT A BUSINESS PERSON ESSENTIALLY IS WILLING TO
MAKE A DEAL, IF THE DEAL IS GOOD.
HELLO. THIS IS A POSSIBILITIES.
RIGHT NOW THIS IS A POSSIBILITY THAT CAN BREAK ALL BARRIERS.
BUT DON’T MAKE LARGE COMPANIES INTO NEW RELIGIONS.
THAT IS IMPORTANT. I BELONG TO THIS COMPANY BECAUSE
SOME ARE TRYING TO DO THIS, THEY HAVE THEIR OWN ANTHEMS.
SOME LARGE COMPANIES HAVE THEIR OWN ANTHEMS.
THEY HAVE STARTED SING THEIR ANTHEMS LIKE A NATION.
SOME OF THEM ARE DOING IT. THE BEST THING ABOUT BUSINESS IT
IS TRARNS PARENT AND GOING HERE AND THERE AND EVERYWHERE.
TRANSFORM INTO A CONSCIOUSNESS RATHER THAN CREATING ANOTHER
LEVEL OF BOUNDARIES. IF YOU GOLY RELIGION OR RACE OR
NATIONALITY, THEY ARE ALL DEFINED BY BOUNDARIES.
BUSINESS I’M SEEING AS A POSSIBILITY BECAUSE THIS IS NOT
DEFINED BY BOUNDARY. IF YOU ARE SELLING SAFETY PIN,
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO? YOU WANT TO SELL IT TO ALL SIX
BILLION PEOPLE. YES OR NO. HELLO.
BESIDES I WILL TELL MY SAFETY PIN ONLY TO THESE TWO PEOPLE,
NOT TO THOSE TWO PEOPLE. NO SUCH THING.
I WANT TO GIVE IT TO EVERYBODY. THIS IS A POSSIBILITY TO BREAK
ALL BOUNDARIES AND CREATE A DIFFERENT LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS
IN THE WORLD IF ONLY THE BUSINESS LEADERS OF THE FUTURE ARE MORE CONSCIOUS.
– SHALL WE HEAR SOME QUESTIONS FROM THEM?
SO WE HAVE TWO MICS. IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION, PLEASE
COME TO ONE OF THE MICS. WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR SOME OF THEM.
– HI. I ALWAYS SEE YOU PULLING YOUR
ROBE UP TO YOUR SHOULDER, DON’T YOU GET TIRED OF DOING THIS?
[LAUGHTER] – I’M NOT ALWAYS DOING IT, ONLY
WHEN IT GOES DOWN.
[LAUGHTER] – [SPEAKER OFF MIC]
– WE WANT TO GET IT ON THE MIC.
CAN YOU BRING THE MIC OVER?
THANK YOU. WE WANT TO HEAR YOU.
– I HAVE A PERSPECTIVE TO COMMENT ON.
I AGREE WITH THE IDEA THAT BUSINESS IS KIND OF WHERE WE ARE
GOING AND THAT TAKES ME BACK TO TIME WHEN BUSINESS DIDN’T HAVE
ALL OF THE LABELS, BUT I HAVE CORN AND YOU HAVE APPLES AND WE
TRADED AND WE ARE BOTH BETTER OFF.
– MANGO .
– BUT WITH TRADING WE ARE BETTER OFF W. THE HUMAN JOY GIVING TO
EACH OTHER SOMETHING OF VALUE HAS BECOME TO ME AT LEAST IN
MODERN TIMES WE LOST SIGHT OF THAT WITH THE INITIAL MEANING OF
IT GONE TO PROFIT AND MAXIMIZATION WITHOUT THE CONCERN
OF THE VALUE TO THE OTHER. BUT I THINK BEHOLD THE IDEA THAT
WE HAVE DONE BUSINESS WHEN WE TRADED AND THAT WE ARE JUST
GETTING GLOBAL AND MASTERFUL AT IT.
BUT AT THE CORE WE CREATING A HUMAN VALUE.
I JUST CURIOUS ABOUT YOUR IDEAS ON THAT.
– THERE IS A CERTAIN PRIEST THAT GRAB AND GO BUSINESS, GRAB AND
GO BUSINESS IS THE PERIOD OF OUR HISTORY,
MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF BUSINESS [INDISCERNIBLE] YOU WENT TO
ANOTHER PLACE AND GOING THERE ONLY ONCE AND GRAB AND GET HOME. BUT TODAY THAT IS CHANGING.
YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND, I THINK THIS LANGUAGE IS STILL THERE.
PEOPLE NEED TO BE LIKE SHARKS IN THE SOUP.
AND THEY HAVE TO MAKE A KILLING. THIS KILLING WOULD HURT EVERY
MAN. DO YOU HAVE THE KILLER INSTINCT.
SO I THINK THAT IS ON THE WAY OUT RIGHT NOW.
BECAUSE COMPANIES ARE GROWING LARGE ENOUGH AND THEY UNDERSTAND
THAT BONDING WITH A CUSTOMER IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN KILLING HIM.
MAKING A KILLING ON ONE PRODUCT IS NOT A WISE WAY TO CONNECT
YOUR BUSINESS. TOMORROW YOU STILL HAVE TO DO
BUSINESS. WHEN BUSINESS WAS DONE, WE KNOW
THIS VERY WELL, BECAUSE [INDISCERNIBLE] THEY
MADE A KILLING. KILLING REGARDING THE DETAIL IT
IS VERY BAD. THEY MADE A KILLING.
BUT THEN YOU WILL MAKE A KILLING, IF I MAKE A DEAL WITH
YOU, IF I MAKE A KILLING. IF I WANT TO CONTINUE MY
BUSINESS, I HAVE TO THINK FOR YOU ALSO.
BECAUSE IN ANY TRANSACTION WHETHER IT IS MARKET OR
MARRIAGE, UNLESS IT IS BENEFICIAL FOR BOTH OF THE
PARTIES THIS TRANSACTION WILL NOT ENDURE.
IF ANY TRANSACTION BOTH OF THE PARTIES MUST BENEFIT.
IF YOU ARE A WISE BUSINESSMAN YOU WILL THINK ABOUT WHAT ARE
THEY GETTING. IF YOU DON’T ENSURE THEY ARE
GETTING SOMETHING, YOUR BUSINESS WILL CLOSE TOMORROW MORNING.
TODAY YOU MAY MAKE SOMETHING, TOMORROW YOU WILL CLOSE.
THAT APPROACH TO BUSINESS IS RIGHT NOW ON THE WAY OUT, SLOWLY
PEOPLE ARE THINKING OF THE CUSTOMER IS IMPORTANT.
YOU KNOW. HOW TO SERVICE THEM.
HOW TO GIVE THEM MORE AND MORE THINGS.
HOW TO GIVE THEM THREE THINGS. THIS IS HOW BUSINESSES ARE THINKING TODAY.
– THANK YOU SO MUCH COMING. MY QUESTION IS YOU EXPLAINED
BUSINESS HAD THIS SELF-INTEREST. AT THE PERSONAL LEVEL A LOT OF
US WILL BE MORE OPEN TO LEADING IN A CONSCIOUS WAY, SO I WOULD
LOVE FOR YOU TO TALK ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF CONSCIOUS LEADER AND
HOW THAT TRANSFORMS AN ORGANIZATION AND LEADING TO
BUSINESS SUCCESS SO WE CAN KEEP THAT IN MIND AND KNOW IT IS
ACTUALLY GOING TO HELP US AND CREATE VALUE FOR PEOPLE AND
BUILD THE ORGANIZATION. – – BEHAVING IN UNREASONABLE WAY
MEANS WHEN EVER PEOPLE DO SOMETHING THAT YOU THINK IS NOT
IN LINE WHAT YOU THINK SHOULD HAPPEN YOU GIVE THEM A PIECE OF
YOUR MIND. YOU MUST LOOK AT THIS TERM.
SO I GAVE SOMEBODY A PIECE OF MY MIND, YES, YOU GOT NASTY WITH
THEM. SO WHY PIECES OF YOUR MIND ALL
NASTY? WHY ISN’T YOUR PIECES OF YOUR
MIND BEAUTIFUL. IF YOU HAVE A NASTY MIND — THIS HAPPENED, A WIFE LOST HER MIND COMPLETELY.
WHEN THE DOCTOR EXAMINED HER AND SAID SHE WAS COMPLETELY LOST HER
MIND. I’M NOT SURPRISED, THE LAST 15
MONTHS YOU GAVE ME A PIECE OF IT EVERY DAY SO IT MUST BE GONE.
SO IF YOU START GIVING A PIECE OF YOUR MIND EVERY DAY, VERY
SOON YOU ARE HALF WAY TO NO BRAIN.
MOST HUMAN BEINGS RIGHT NOW — BEING DETERMINED BY SOMEONE
ELSE. A VARIETY OF WORK IN A DAY THE
NUMBER OF THINGS AND VARIETY OF THINGS I MANAGE.
IF ANYBODY HAS TO GO CRAZY, I’M THE FIRST CANDIDATE.
BECAUSE I WORK WITH VOLUNTEER S.
WORKING WITH VOLUNTEERS MEANS THEY DIDN’T ALL COME OUT OF
BERKELEY BUSINESS SCHOOL AND THEY KNOW WHAT TO DO.
NOBODY IS TRAINED FOR THE JOB.
YOU CAN’T FIRE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE VOLUNTEERS. BUT I WON’T GO CRAZY BUT I’M NOT
GIVING THIS LECTURE TO ANYONE, SOMEONE CAN MAKE ME HAPPY OR
MISERABLE. THOSE PRIVILEGES I KEEP TO
MYSELF. THIS IS WHAT CONSCIOUSNESS
MEANS. WHAT HAPPENS WITHIN YOU, HAPPENS
THE WAY YOU WANT IT. WHAT HAPPENS AROUND YOU, WILL
NEVER HAPPEN A HUNDRED PERCENT YOUR WAY.
A LITTLE BIT YOUR WAY, A LITTLE BIT MY WAY, THAT IS THE WAY THE
WORLD SHAPES ITSELF, WHAT HAPPENS WITHIN ME, HAPPENS THE
WAY I WANT IT. IF EVERYTHING HAPPENED THE WAY
YOU WANT IT — [INDISCERNIBLE]
SO RIGHT NOW, IS SIMPLE WAY OF APPROACHING IT, NOW I FOUND
YOGA, PEOPLE THINK TWISTING AND TURNING, LULULEMON. [LAUGHTER]
THE WORD YOGA MEANS UNION, UNION MEANS YOU CONSCIOUSLY ALTER THE
BOUNDARIES. THIS IS YOGA. YOU ARE ARTICULATING THE BOUNDARIES.
THAT MEANS YOU ARE BREATHING RIGHT.
EDUCATION IS HOW TO INCREASE YOUR MEMORY.
RIGHT. KNOWLEDGE MEANS MEMORY.
BUT THE SYSTEMS ARE LOOKING AT HOW TO ENHANCE THE LIFE THAT YOU
ARE. WHEN I SAY LIFE THAT YOU ARE,
SEE THIS IS MY BODY, THIS IS MY MIND, THAT IS YOUR MIND.
THESE THINGS WILL NEVER COME TOGETHER.
YOU CAN BUILD A COMPANIONSHIP.
THIS IS MY BODY. THAT IS YOUR BODY.
DO WHATEVER YOU WANT. THIS IS MY MIND.
THAT IS YOUR MIND. DO WHATEVER YOU WANT.
YES OR NO. BUT THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MY
LIFE AND YOUR LIFE. THIS IS A LIVING COSMOS.
NOW HOW MUCH YOU [INDISCERNIBLE] THIS WILL DETERMINE HOW
SIGNIFICANT A LIFE YOU ARE. RIGHT NOW YOU HAVE BIG MUSCLE,
SMART MIND.
THIS WAS HOW HUMANITY WAS FOR A LONG TIME BECAUSE MAN’S MUSCLE
WAS EVERYTHING. ONCE THE MACHINES CAME, MAN’S
MUSCLE WENT BACK WARDS, RIGHT NOW, WE ARE ALL INSTITUTIONS ARE
BUILT TO PROVE THAT MEN’S MEMORY IS EVERYTHING, IN THE NEXT FIVE
TEN YEARS LIKE HOW MAN’S MUSCLE WENT, THERE WAS A TIME YOU HAD
BIG MUSCLES YOU ARE THE BOSS OF THIS PLACE.
BUT TODAY WE MAYBE KEEP YOURS A SECRET OUT THERE.
SIMILARLY, IF YOU HAVE BIG MEMORY TODAY YOU ARE A BOSS.
ONCE SOMEONE COMES WITH MORE MEMORY THAN YOU, YOUR MEMORY
WON’T MEAN ANYTHING. WHAT IS THE VALUE OF BEING
HUMAN? A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE WORRIED
THEIR JOBS ARE GOING AWARE. I GO TO AI CONFERENCES.
I’M NOT A TECHNOLOGY PERSON.
WHAT WILL WE DO. I SAY YOU ARE THE ONES THANK GOD
IT IS FRIDAY. EVERY THING IS DONE BY THE
MACHINE, WHAT KIND OF A HUMAN BEING YOU ARE WILL BECOME THE
HIGHEST VALUE. GOOD TIMES ARE COMING.
HELLO. WHEN THEY ARE THE LEADERS,
[INDISCERNIBLE] EVEN NOW THE MOVIES ARE LIKE THAT.
BIG GUY, BIG FISH OR BIG DUMB. IN THE WORLD AROUND US, IT IS
GOING AWAY. WHAT WE DO DEPENDS ON CONSCIOUS
AND WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING YOU ARE, BECOMES THE HIGHEST VALUE.
YOU ARE THE ONLY CREATE THAT HAS HUMAN BEING, WE DON’T CALL IT A
TIGER AN ELEPHANT. ONLY TO YOU, BECAUSE YOU ARE
SUPPOSED TO KNOW HOW TO BE, HOW FAR AWAY FROM TRUTH ARE WE.
IF YOU KNOW HOW TO BE, HOW WILL YOU BE?
HIGHEST LEVEL OF PLEASANTNESS FOR YOURSELF.
IF YOU ARE IN A [INDISCERNIBLE] YOU ARE FEELING WONDERFUL.
SO YOU ARE WONDERFUL TO EVERYONE AND YOU.
ANOTHER DAY YOU ARE NASTY, YOU GIVE A PIECE OF YOUR MIND TO
EVERYONE. WE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO CREATE
GOOD PEOPLE, GOOD PEOPLE HAVE BEEN A DISASTER.
WE NEED TO CREATE JOYFUL AND CONSCIOUS HUMAN BEINGS.
WHEN YOU ARE JOYFUL WE CAN EXPECT YOU WILL DO PLEASANT
THINGS TO EVERYBODY. WHEN YOU ARE MISERABLE, YOU WILL
DO MISERABLE THINGS TO EVERYBODY.
THIS IS WHY GOOD PEOPLE HAVE DONE MORE MISERABLE THINGS TO
EVERYONE ELSE. THEY MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS.
PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY ARE NOT SO GOOD, THEY KNOW THEY ARE NOT SO
GOOD, THEY’LL SIT AND DRINK BY THEMSELVES.
THE GOOD PEOPLE WANT TO MESS WITH EVERYBODY.
PEOPLE WHO THINK THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF GOODNESS IN PEOPLE’S
MIND ARE GOD. PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE WORKING
FOR GOD HAVE DONE THE MOST HORRIBLE THINGS ON THE PLANET.
YES OR NO.
HELLO. THEY THINK THEY ARE WORKING FOR
GOD. BECAUSE THE MOMENT YOU THINK YOU
ARE GOOD YOU HAVE A LICENSE TO DO ALL KINDS OF RUBBISH.
WE NEED MORE CONSCIOUS AND PLEASANT HUMAN BEINGS.
IF YOU ARE FEELING WONDERFUL, YOU WILL BE NICE TO EVERYONE AROUND YOU.
– I WANT — WE HAVE TIME FOR ONE MORE QUESTION.
– THANK YOU FOR COMING HERE. [INDISCERNIBLE] AS A LEADER, WHAT YOU SAID
PASSING ON THE LIMITATIONS AND ASSUMPTIONS [INDISCERNIBLE] AND
WITH EVERY BEING IN THIS WORLD, [INDISCERNIBLE] AS WE PASS ON THE SYSTEM, HOW DO
WE CONSCIOUS DIFFERENTIATE — – AS THE CHICKEN PASSED ON THEIR
WISDOM TO THE NEXT GENERATION, THEY WOULDN’T BE ON A PLATE.
HELLO. YES OR NO.
THEY ARE NOT PASSED ON. YOU MUST UNDERSTAND NOBODY
PASSED ON WISDOM. SKILLS ARE ALWAYS ABOUT
SURVIVAL. SURVIVAL SKILLS ARE PASSED ON.
NOBODY PASSED ON WISDOM. YOU THINK SO.
WISDOM IS PASSED ON? INTELLIGENCE CANNOT BE PASSED
ON. THIS HAPPENS.
A DAY A FIVE-YEAR-OLD CAME UP TO HIM AND ASKED FATHER, WHERE DID
I GET MY INTELLIGENCE FROM? IT MUST BE FROM YOUR MOTHER,
BECAUSE MINE IS INTACT.
NOBODY CAN PASS ON INTELLIGENCE. NOBODY CAN PASS ON WISDOM.
THEY CAN ONLY PASS ON SKILLS. WE HAVE LEARNED THAT SO GOING
THROUGH REINVENT ING THE WHEEL.
THERE IS A WAY IF YOUR CONSCIOUS THERE IS A WAY THAT THE NEXT
GENERATION THAT YOU BRING FORTH IN THE WAY YOU SEE AND DO THINGS
YOU CAN BRING FORTH A NOR CONSCIOUS BEING.
SO HOW DO MAKE THEM MORE CONSCIOUS.
BECAUSE BEING CONSCIOUS MEANS BEING THIS, YOU ARE NOT
CLUTTERED BY THINGS THAT YOU HAVE GATHERED.
YOUR INTELLIGENCE MEANS NOT DULLED BY WHAT YOU HAVE
GATHERED. IT IS LIKE THIS, YOU ARE AN
INDIAN, HOW DO YOU EAT? THAT’S GOOD. THERE IS A FAIR [INDISCERNIBLE] THEN THE KNIFE WILL GATHER
SOMETHING ON IT. THE MORE IT GATHERS, THE MORE
SIGNIFICANT THE KNIFE BECOMES. IF YOUR INTELLECT COLLECTS IN
THE MEMORY, AFTER SOME TIME IT IS A USEFUL THING.
FOR EXAMPLE, SAYING YOU ARE DRESSING UP, SUPPOSE YOUR MEMORY
REMEMBERS 10% OF ALL IT SAW. THIS IS FINISHED.
IT IS NOT REMEMBERING A THING. THAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT THE
MIRROR. THAT IS WHAT CONSCIOUSNESS MEANS.
SHE WAS ASKING, WHAT IS MYSTIC. SOME TIME AGO, COMPILED A SERIES
OF TALKS THAT I HAVE GIVEN INTO A BOOK AND THEY CAME TO ME WITH
A TITLE. I LOOKED AT THE CONTENT AND GAVE
A TITLE. MYSTICS AND MISTAKES.
CAN YOU DO SOMETHING GENTLER?
SEE LIFE JUST THE WAY IT IS.
BUT JUST SEE LIFE IS WAY IT IS.
THERE ARE MISTAKES. BECAUSE THEIR PERCEPTION IS
CLOUDED THAT MEMORY IS SO MANY THINGS THEY HAVE COLLECTED.
IF YOU HAVE A [INDISCERNIBLE] IT IS NOT SEEING ANYTHING THE WAY
IT IS. SO CONSCIOUSNESS MEANS THIS, YOU
MAKE YOUR INTELLIGENCE UNENCUMBERED BY THE MEMORIES
THAT YOU HAVE. YOU ARE ONLY PASSING ON SKILLS.
YOU CANNOT PASS ON WISDOM. A VERY WISE FATHER CAN
ABSOLUTELY IDIOT SON. BUT YOU CAN PASS ON SKILLS.
ALL THE SKILLS WILL BECOME A BIG THING YOUR FATHER TAUGHT YOU HOW
TO DRIVE, BUT NOT DRIVERLESS CARS.
YOU TAUGHT YOUR CHILD HOW TO BICYCLE, AND NOW THERE ARE
BICYCLES YOU DON’T HAVE TO BALANCE.
THEY BALANCE BY THEMSELVES. TO LEARN ABC, TO WRITE, I WAS
TELLING SOMEBODY, MY FATHER’S HANDWRITING, THEY GREW UP INDIA AND THEY WROTE LIKE
THAT. IN THE NEXT GENERATION, NOT
LEARNING HOW TO WRITE. WRITING WILL COMPLETELY GO AWAY.
PROBABLY IN A GENERATION OR TWO. IF YOU SPEAK, THE MACHINE WILL
WRITE. RIGHT NOW IT IS WRITING IN
PRINT, IT CAN WRITE IN HAND WRITING YOU CHOOSE.
ISN’T IT SO? WE ARE CLOSE TO THAT.
WE ARE. SO I’M SAYING JUST TO TEACH A
CHILD HOW TO WRITE WAS SUCH A BIG EFFECT.
THIS WILL BE GONE. SO THE SKILLS THAT YOU ARE
TRANSFERRING ARE ONLY RELEVANT IN THE TIMES THAT WE EXIST.
IF YOU WERE HERE SAY A THOUSAND YEARS AGO, YOU HAD TO SHOOT
ARROW STRAIGHT. NOW YOU NEVER HEAR ABOUT THAT.
THE MAIN BUSINESS OF THE PARENT WAS TO TEACH HOW TO USE A KNIFE,
ARROW, HOW TO USE WHATEVER. IT DOESN’T MATTER ANY MORE.
NOBODY WILL TEACH SUCH THINGS. SO THE SKILLS THAT YOU ARE
TRANSFERRING ARE ONLY RELEVANT FOR THE PERIODS IN WHICH WE
EXIST. WE DON’T TRANSFER WISDOM.
– SO I WILL ATTEMPT TO WRAP UP. I’M GOING TO TRY TO CONNECT AND
CIRCLE BACK TO THIS, I AM HEAR YOU SAYING WE HAVE TO SEE AND BE
AWARE OF WHAT WE ARE NOT CONSCIOUS OF.
I WILL LEAVE YOU WITH THIS, WE HAVE BEEN TRAINED IN A SYSTEM THAT EDUCATION DB —
– IT IS ABOUT LEADERSHIP. YOU HAVE TO FIND THE LOOPHOLES
IN YOUR INTELLIGENCE. IF YOU FIND THE LOOP HOPES IN
YOUR INTELLIGENCE, AND OTHER PEOPLE WILL THINK YOU ARE
INTELLIGENT. IF YOU THINK YOU ARE
INTELLIGENT, YOU HAVE MADE A BLOODY FOOL OF YOURSELF.
THIS IS THE FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN
INTELLIGENT PERSON, THOSE KNOW HOW LIMITED HE IS.
HE KNOWS HE’S A FOOL. AN IDIOT DOESN’T KNOW HE’S AN
IDIOT. JUST A LEAF ON A TREE IS FAR
MORE INTELLIGENT THAN YOU. HELLO.
IF YOU PAY ENOUGH ATTENTION YOU WILL SEE IF YOU PAY NO ATTENTION
YOU WILL SEE — YOU FEEL LIKE A BLOODY FOOL AND DON’T TELL
ANYBODY, BUT YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS, YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE
LOOPHOLES IN YOUR INTELLIGENCE. THE MORE YOU CREATE THE
LOOPHOLES THE MORE EFFECTIVE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD.
SORRY. [LAUGHTER]
– WHY THAT IS DIFFICULT FOR US WE HAVE NOT BEEN TRAINED TO
THINK OR SEEN IN THAT WAY. I WANT TO LEE YOU ALL WITH HOW
DO WE RETRAIN OURSELVES TO LOOK AT THE WHOLE SYSTEM AND NOT JUST
SEE THE OBVIOUS STAINS IN THE CONCRETE RAE O REALITY THAT WE
HAVE BEEN TAUGHT TO FOCUS. HOW DO WE BEGIN TO SEE THE
RELATIONSHIPS AND THE CONNECTIONS IN THE PARTS AND THE
WORLD THAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.
THOSE COSTS TO OUR LYES IN THE WAY THAT WE ARE DOING BUSINESS
IN LEADERSHIP THAT WE ARE NOT AWARE OF THINKING ABOUT. I WANT TO END WITH SOMETHING
THAT I SHARED WITH YOU THIS MORNING. LET’S CLOSE ON THIS.
THIS IS FROM SADHGURU. THE ALL OF YOU WHO ARE MY FLESH
RED BREATH AND BEING, WHAT HAPPENS TO US SHOULD HAPPEN TO
EVERYONE, WE ARE STRIVING FOR E TERRIBLE R TERNL SPRINGTIME IN
AUM MINDS AND HEARTS AND BLOOMS LIKE — LOVE AND GRACE.
SADHGURU. [APPLAUSE]
