Storms of Emotions 情緒的風暴

​Q:​
Gurudev, when the mind gets stuck in a situation, it does not get out quickly. What does one do for that? Sri Sri: It is okay, the mind is like that only. This is where knowledge is important. Knowledge is like holding on to a life jacket in a storm.
That is why it is called
​ ​
storms of emotions. The ancient people have compared emotions to an ocean; it like an ocean and you need to learn to swim across this ocean. Knowledge is the life jacket. So when you get tired of swimming, just put on the life jacket and you will make it to the shore.
Just imagine, if this knowledge is not with you and you are stuck in a problem, then what condition will you be in? What would you do?
If you had never done any meditation or pranayama, never listened to any knowledge, and you get into a situation where your mind is entangled with some girl or boy, then what would have been going on in your mind? You would have become mad, isn’t it? Be thankful that you at least have this knowledge. Knowledge is what will help you cross over safely.
For example, if somebody insults you, then the knowledge point kicks in, ‘Don’t be a football of others’ opinion’. This comes automatically. From somewhere or the other, a ray of knowledge arises within you to save you, to raise you above the event. Does it happen or not? (Many in the audience speak out in agreement.)
See how it happens for so many people.

(Devotee: Gurudev, just give blessings)
Yes, when have I not given blessings? I always give blessings, but you need to come with a bigger vessel. You come with a small cup and say, ‘Please give me two liters’. You have to make your vessels bigger so that I can give you four liters instead of two liters. You bring such a small vessel that can hold only ten

​​
milliliters, keep aside two liters.
​​
Grace and blessing have their own place, without them nothing works. You will keep getting it. Along with it, we will also have to make our own efforts. We have to increase our capacity to receive.
 


 


​問:​
古儒吉
​,當心智卡在一個情況當中,它不能馬上跳脫出來。要怎麼辦?
古儒吉:沒關係,心智就是這樣的。這也是知識重要的地方。知識就像是風暴裡的救生衣。它也被稱為情緒的風暴。古時候人們把情緒比喻成海洋;它就像大海而你要學習如何游過這個大海。知識是救生衣。所以當你遊到累了,就把救生衣穿上,那麼你就可以游到岸上。​
去想像,如果你沒有這個知識而你被卡在一個問題當中,那麼你會處在什麼情況當中?你會怎麼做?如果你沒有做過任何的靜心或調息法,沒有聽過任何的知識,而你的心智陷入一些男女問題裡,那麼你的心智會怎麼樣?你會氣壞了,不對嗎?要感恩你至少有這個知識。知識會讓你安全抵達對岸。
比如說,如果有人侮辱你,“不要成為別人意見的足球”這個知識點就會發揮作用。它是自然來到的。一道知識之光從內在出現來解救你,把你提升到這個事件之上。這樣的事情有沒有發生過?(觀眾很多認同這點。)瞧,多少人都經歷過了。​
(虔信者:古儒吉,請給我們祝福)
是的,我何時沒有給祝福?我常常都在給予祝福,但是你們得拿更大的容器來。你拿個小杯子來並說“請給我兩公升”。你必須擴充你的容器好讓我能給你四公升而不只是兩公升。你帶個只可以裝十​
​毫升的​
​小容器,就更別說要兩公升了。
​恩典和祝福有各自的位置,沒有它們就什麼也不能。你會一直接受到恩典和祝福。隨著這點,我們自己也需要努力。我們需要增加自己接受祝福和恩典的能力。​
