Question: After years of doing sadhana, I still feel I might not be getting anywhere. What to do?

:我做了这么多年的修行练习了,仍然觉得自己可能哪里也去不了。我该怎么办?

 

Sadhguru: It doesn’t matter how many years of sadhana you do, you will not get anywhere. Not that you might not, you will not. Because the idea of doing sadhana is not to go somewhere. The idea of doing sadhana is to come to a state where you can simply be here – to understand and know that what is here is everywhere, what is not here is nowhere. Getting beyond the need to go somewhere, that is sadhana, because in fact, there is nowhere to go. There is only here, and there is only now. The rest is all in your head. Sadhana is to bring you to a state where at least for some period of time in the day, just sitting is good enough. If you live, you are here and now, if you die, you are still here and now. You cannot go anywhere. There is nowhere to go.

萨古鲁:不管你进行了多少年的修行练习,你还是哪里也不会去。不是你可能去不了,而是你是一定去不了。因为修行练习,不是为了去哪里。修行练习,是让你到达一种状态——你单纯地坐在这里,就明白,就知道,在当下的就在每个地方,不在当下的就哪里也没有。有的只是此时此地的当下。其他的全都在你的头脑里。修行练习是为了让你到达一种状态,在一天中的一段时间内,你只是坐着就足够好了。如果活着,你就在当下,如果你死了,你仍在当下。你哪里也去不了。你无处可去。

 

Sadhana is a device

修行练习是个工具

 

Sadhana is a device. It is a method to bring you to a certain level of maturity where the need to go somewhere is gone. That is why people who are steeped in sadhana are not moving anywhere. If you travel around the world, you will still not know whether the world is round or flat, forget about knowing the intricacies of life. But if you are truly here, everything that is worth knowing is right here, because you cannot perceive anything on the outside. It doesn’t matter if you sit here or in the Himalayas or Africa or the United States or South Pole or North Pole. Maybe certain atmospheres are supportive, certain atmospheres are not supportive, that is a different thing – but essentially, you can only experience what happens within you.

修行练习是个工具。它是一种让你进入某种层次的成熟度的工具,让你那种去别处的需要都消失。这就是为什么深深沉浸在修行练习中的人哪里也不去。如果你环游世界,你还是不会知道这个世界是圆的还是平的,更别提了悟生命的错综复杂。但是如果你真正地在当下,一切值得了悟的就在当下,因为你无法从外在了解到任何东西。不管你是坐在这里还是坐在喜马拉雅山,还是在非洲,还是在美国,南极或是北极。也许有些环境有利修行,有些环境不利修行,这是不一样的——但是本质上,你只能体验到发生在你内在的东西。

 

Sadhana is that blessed process through which you realize this, that there is nowhere to go. When the need to go stops, your sadhana is successful. Then you just sit.

通过修行练习的过程,你会意识到,你无处可去。当你想去到别处的需求停止了,你的修行练习就成功了。之后,你就只是单纯地静坐着。 

 

So, wherever you go, only this is there. You know, these mountains here are called Velliangiri. That means “White Mountain.” You can make them the Himalayas – that is what it means. We also call them “Kailash of the South.” If you sit here long enough or involved enough, they will become the Kailash; you don’t need to make the journey. You can only experience what happens within you. You cannot experience what happens in the mountain, you cannot experience what happens in the sky, you cannot experience what happens anywhere.

所以,不管你去哪里,都只有当下。你知道,这里的这些山叫做维灵吉瑞山,意思是“白色的山”。你可以让它们成为喜马拉雅山——这就是它的意义。我们也可以称其为“南部的冈仁波齐”。如果你坐在这里,坐得足够长久,足够投入,它们就会变成冈仁波齐;你不需要走到喜马拉雅山脉的冈仁波齐峰去。你只能体验到发生在你内在的事情。你体验不到发生在山里的事情、在天空的事情,在哪里发生的你都体验不到。

 

You can sit here, look at someone, and experience love. You can close your eyes, just think about someone, and experience love, isn’t it? You can either stimulate it from outside or simulate it from inside, both are possible. Either you are on “push-start” or “self-start.” Either you are a current machine or a past machine. You look at the moon, you look at the earth, you close your eyes, you open your eyes – still what is happening within you is all that is happening to you – nothing more, nothing less.

你可以坐在这里,看着某个人,然后体验到爱。你可以闭上双眼,只想着某个人,然后就体验到爱,对不对?你要么从外在激发爱的体验,要么从内在激发爱的体验。你要么是“手动挡”,要么是“自动挡”。不管你是当代的机器,还是一台过去的机器,你看着月亮,看着地球,闭上双眼,睁开双眼——发生在你内在的,仍是那发生在你身上的事情——不多也不少。

 

Sadhana is to bring yourself to that level of maturity to simply see, it does not matter what you do, it does not matter whether you climb a peak or sit in the valley, it does not matter if you are successful or not in the world, it does not matter if you are well-known or not, it does not matter if you are eating whatever you dream of or not, it is just the way you experience it. This is not a trap, that is the beauty of life. There is really nowhere to go. You can sit here and be blissful, ecstatic; you can sit here and be miserable. You have a whole range of choice. You can sit here and think, “This is the most blessed moment in my life.” You can sit here and think, “This is the most torturous moment in my life.” Life has not put any bondage upon you. Bondage is all your making. Existence has left you free, absolutely free. You can sit here and that’s it. Nothing needs to happen, and yet you can go through life in a most wondrous way because of what you do within yourself. Or you can go all over the place and do all kinds of things, and still go through life in an utterly miserable way. Both are your making.

修行练习是为了让你到达一种成熟度,你明白,不管你做什么,不管你登上山巅还是坐在谷底,你在这个世界上成功还是失败,声名赫赫还是默默无闻,吃的是不是你梦寐以求的食物,都只在于你体验它们的方式。这不是陷阱,这就是生命的美妙之处。你真的无处可去。你可以坐在这里,充满喜悦;你也可以坐在这里,痛苦不堪。你可以自由选择。你可以坐在这里,心想,“这是我生命中最美妙的时刻”。你也可以坐在这里,心想,“这是我生命中最折磨最痛苦的时刻”。生命没有给你任何束缚。束缚全都是你造成的。存在是放你自由的,全然地自由自在。你可以坐在这里,就一切都好。不需要任何事发生,只因为你在内在所做的事情,你就可以以最美妙的方式经历生活。或者,你可以去很多地方,做各种事情,然后仍然以一种极其痛苦的方式经历生活。二者都是你的选择。

 

Getting rid of the itch

消除去别处的渴望

 

Sadhana is that blessed process through which you realize this, that there is nowhere to go. When the need to go stops, your sadhana is successful. Then you just sit. Sitting need not necessarily mean you are physically sitting in one place. It is just that the itch to go into this and that is gone. If you sit, you are fine, if you run, you are fine, if you fly, you are fine, if you walk also you are fine. Wherever you are, you are just fine. Once the itch is gone, you are at ease. Once you are at ease, you don’t have to do anything. Just a little bit of waiting, that’s all. Only if you are in love, you can wait, because when you are in love with somebody, you are feeling emotionally pleasant. Love creates a lot of mental anxiety because that is your idea of concern. So your mind is getting unpleasant, but your emotion is pleasant – and still it is worthwhile.

通过修行练习的过程,你会意识到,你无处可去。当你想去到别处的需求停止了,你的修行练习就成功了。之后,你就只是单纯地静坐着。静坐着不一定是指你的身体坐在一个地方,而是你内在去这里那里的渴望消失了。你坐着,就很好,你跑步,也很好,你飞翔,也很好,你走路,也很好。不管你去哪里,你都很好。一旦那种渴望消失了,你就是自由自由的。一旦你是自在的,你就不需要任何东西。你只要一点点的等待,就足够了。只要当你处在爱之中,你才能等待。因为当你爱着某个人,你在情感上才是愉悦的。爱能创造许多精神焦虑。因为那是你所关心的事情。所以你的头脑变得不快乐,但是你的情感是快乐的——这仍然是值得的。

 

If you are irritated, agitated, frustrated or angry, you cannot wait because you are unpleasant. Depending upon the type of karmic substance you carry and the kind of active and dynamic help that you get from outside, the period of waiting may alter. It may be a few moments, a few years… just sitting and waiting. When your insides are pleasant, waiting for a few years is not a big deal. You just wait.

如果你焦虑不安,沮丧愤怒,你就无法等待,因为你不快乐。根据你所携带的业力内容,以及你从外在获得的活跃动态助力,你等待的时间可能会变动。也许是几秒钟,也许是几年……你只是坐着等待。当你的内在是快乐的,等上几年就不是大问题。你只是等待。

 

爱与恩典
