Sadhguru: For the kind of possibilities human beings hold, life is a brief amount of time. Only for people who do not explore the full depth and dimension of who they are, for those who are miserable and depressed, life is long. This is because time is a relative experience. If you keep yourself vibrant, exuberant, and joyful, it is a very brief life. There is no point in dwelling on yesterday, as long as you did the best you could do. The important thing is that what you thought was the best you could do yesterday should not be good enough to you anymore today. What you are doing today should be much better. That means you are growing.

萨古鲁:对于人类所拥有的可能性而言,生命是一段很短暂的时间。只有对于那些没有充分挖掘他们自己的深度和维度的人,对于那些悲惨和消沉的人,生命才是漫长的。这是因为时间是一种相对性的体验。如果你使你自己保持着活力,充满喜悦,生命是十分短暂的。沉浸在过去没有任何意义,只要你已尽自己所能。重要的是,昨天你以为你只能做这么多,今天你可以做的比那个更好。你今天做的应该要更好得多。那意味着你在成长。

 

If you act to the best of your ability and intelligence, every day will be an explosion of possibilities. If you are driving fast, there is no time to look back. Only those who are living in a parked car keep looking in the rearview mirror, because they are not going anywhere. There is no point in doing postmortem on yesterday. Crafting tomorrow is what is important. To create an exciting future, you need to be at your best. Growth means to make yourself the way you want to be. And how you want to be may change as you mature. Determine what the highest levels for you are in terms of body, mind, and emotions. That is what you should go for.

如果你能发挥出你最大的能力和智慧,每一天都充满无数可能性。如果你开车开得很快,你根本没有时间往回看。只有那些住在静止不动的车子里的人才会不停地看倒后镜,因为他们不往前走。对昨日进行尸检没有意义,精心制作未来才是重要的。去创造一个令人兴奋的未来,你需要成为最好的自己。成长意味着使你成为你想要成为的自己。随着你的成长,你想要成为的样子也随之而变。定义你在身体、头脑和情感上能达到的最高程度,那是你应该追求的。

 

You do not have to be better than someone else, but you should not be anything less than what you can be. If you think your life is worthwhile, you must be at your best – anything less than that is wasted life. If you live exuberantly, life is fantastic. If you are half alive, everything is miserable. In a way, it is a preparation for hell. If you make yourself wonderful, wherever the hell you are, you will be fine. Otherwise, you may be in heaven but turn it into hell. If you want to create a future, it is important that you use your past as a stepping stone, not as a load. The more miserable your past was, the wiser and more mature you should become, sooner than others. When things happen to us, either we can become wise or wounded. This is the choice we have. Do not sit in a corner, hoping nothing bad will happen to you – life does not work that way. Whatever happens in your life, you can turn it into a fortune.

你不需要比某个人更好,但你不应该比你所能成为的有一丝的不及。如果你认为你的生命是有价值的,你就必须成为最好的自己——否则就是生命的浪费。如果你精彩地活着,生命很美好。如果你半死不活,一切都是悲惨的。某种意义上讲,那是为地狱做准备。如果你使你自己变得美妙,就算你身处地狱,你都会很好。否则,也许处在天堂却会把它变成地狱。如果你想创造一个未来,重要的是你将过去作为一个踏脚石,而不是一个负荷。你的过去越是悲惨,你越应该变得智慧和成熟起来,比一般人更快。当事情发生时,我们是变得更有智慧或是负伤,这是我们的选择。不要坐在角落里期待着坏事不会发生在你身上—— 生命不是那样的。不管你的生命中发生什么事,你都可以把它变成财富。

 

When we began establishing the Isha Yoga Center, it created a stir in town. People started gathering around us, and a few influential families did not like it. They met and came up with the plan to come here with a few hundred people and demolish the Yoga Center. But there was a wise old man who said, “You don’t know whom you are dealing with. If you throw stones at him, he will build something out of it. Don’t make that mistake.” What life throws at you, what kind of situations come your way is not always in your hands. But what you make out of it is always yours.

当我们开始建立Isha瑜伽中心时,这在镇上造成了一些轰动。人们开始聚集在我们身边。有几个有影响力的家族并不喜欢这样。他们聚在了一起并计划带几百人过来拆毁瑜伽中心。但有一个智慧的老人说,“你们不知道你们要对付的是谁,如果你朝他丢石头,他会用它来建造东西。不要犯那个错误。”生命朝你丢什么东西,你会遇上什么情况,这些都不总是在你的掌握之中。但你能从中获得什么则取决于你。

 

Take charge of this in your life – no matter what someone says, what life does to you, what the world does to you, turn it into wellbeing. For this, you need balance, and you need to function at your highest level. Indiscriminately, whoever it is, whatever you do – always give your best. Learn to look at everyone and everything with the same intensity and the same involvement. Selective involvement means being half alive. To mature into a full-fledged human being, always strive to function at the highest possible level of your capability, in every little thing you do.

掌控好这一点——不管别人说什么,生命对你做了什么,世界对你做了什么,把它变成幸福。为此,你需要平衡的身心,你需要以你最高的水平来运转。不加区分地,无论是为谁,不管你在做什么——总是全力以赴。学习以同样的专注和投入来看待每个人和每件事。选择性地投入意味着半死不活。成为一个成熟圆满的人,始终要努力以你最大的能力来运作,即便在你做的每件小事中。

 

Unfortunately, ninety percent of humanity is functioning well below their potential – to some extent because someone else said or did something, or even just because they are afraid someone else may think something. That means you are getting into other people’s mind – what a filthy place to be. Whatever anyone else thinks, says, or does, whatever comes your way, learn to turn it into your wellbeing. If someone throws poison at you, you must know how to use it for your wellbeing. Poisons have been turned into medicines, because people paid attention and realized the source of the problem is also a solution.

不幸的是,百分之九十的人所发挥出的都是远低于自身潜能的——某种程度上这是因为别人说了什么或做了什么,又甚至只是因为他们害怕别人会怎么想。也就是说你进入了别人的脑子里了—— 多么肮脏的地方。无论其他人想什么说什么或做什么,无论什么境遇,学着把它变成你的幸福。如果有人把毒药扔向你,你需要学会如何把它变成幸福。毒药可被转化为药物,因为人们潜心研究,并意识到了,问题的源头也是解决之道。

 

There is a saying in Kannada that if someone did something wrong, and other people talk about it, the negative effect of it will be greater for the people who talk about it than for the one who committed the act. Let them carry your burden. If someone abuses you, only their mouth gets dirty. That is not your problem. What someone else says, does, or thinks should not affect you. If you are giving your best, all the time, you will be able to look through whatever they say. What is significant, you can take as a suggestion. The rest, you can drop.

有一句埃纳德谚语说:“言他人之过者,其过尤甚。就让那些闲言者自扰其心吧。如果有人辱骂你,他们便玷污了自己的嘴,这与你无关。他人说什么,做什么或想什么不应该影响到你。你如果总是尽自己最大的能力,就能看穿他们的一切言语。重要的话,就当作建议来聆听。其他的,你可以丢掉。

 

If you are giving less than your best and someone says something about you, you will get confused as to who you are. This does not mean you should establish your way of being once and for all. Growth is a constant process. It is about building yourself up to the highest possible level. Most people are volatile, in the sense, one moment, they are wonderful – the next moment, they are nasty. Instead, determine what the highest level for you is at this time and strive to get there. Just bring this into your life – in everything, give nothing less than the best.

如果你没有给出最好的自己,而他人对你有非议,你就会对自己是怎样的而感到困惑。这不是说你要建立一个固有不变的自己。成长是一个持续的过程,是不断提高以达到自己的最佳水平。大部分人是波动的,在某一刻,他们极好——下一刻,他们就变得很糟糕。但我们应该意识到当下你能够成为的最高可能性,成为每个当下最好的自己。让它贯彻你的生活吧:对于生命中的每一件事,都不要吝啬最好的自己。

 

爱与恩典

萨古鲁
