So now our moment is coming close. We need to conduct things right. We are on the verge of a global burst. When it happens, we need lots of hands. And if there are hearts full of gratitude, we would like to put it to use. This is the time. If you ever thought, even for a fleeting moment, that you must do something – this is the time. To create another movement like this is not easy. This is not to brag about myself. This is not about me. This is about the spiritual process. Never before has hardcore spiritual process been as widely accepted as it is now with us.
Because this is not a gospel, this is gossip, everyone loves it. Gospel is a little “gas-spell” – since it is so serious, it cannot be spiritual. When things become so serious, it becomes a psychological process. Seriousness is a psychological phenomenon. Seriousness is not the quality of the life that you are. If you are mistaking a psychological phenomenon for a spiritual phenomenon, then you will become dead serious, and you will produce gospel after gospel. This has caused huge damage to humanity. Too many have lost their life to spiritual process – they were dead when they were alive.
All the dead serious people liked me very much before the Dhyanalinga consecration, because I was just intense and focused – I had no time to look at anything else. There was only one goal on my mind. So they thought “Oh, he is a powerful yogi. If he just looks at us, we shiver in our pants, so he must be powerful.” Then I told them, I warned them. “See, now this is done I never thought I will live beyond this. But now that I’m still alive, it’s time to change my whole persona. The way I look, the way I speak, the way I conduct my life – everything is going to change. Just hold on. I’m still the same Sadhguru – just the drama will change.” They said, “No problem, Sadhguru – whatever you do, we are with you.” But when I changed, they all started wilting away. They said, “Oh, Sadhguru has lost it. How he used to look at us! Now he laughs and he smiles; he’s acting like a joker all the time. Even dresses up in a saree.” I shouldn’t have told you.
This does not mean that you should just be fooling around, without any involvement. Especially if you want to play, it demands all your involvement. You can go to your school or college without involvement. You can go to the temple without involvement. You can pray to God without involvement, because he will not know. You can live with your family without involvement – they will not know as long as you say the right things. You just have to learn a few mantras. When it comes to temple, home, society, you just have to learn a few mantras. Five times a day, you say, “Aum Namah Shivaya,” Allahu Akbar,” or whatever you want, and God is fooled. Five times a day, you say, “I love you,” and your wife or husband is fooled. Five times a day, you say, “Please. Thank you,” and society around is fooled. But, to play, you need total involvement. Five times a day won’t do. It needs moment-to-moment involvement with everything.
When this global burst happens, which is coming very soon, all those of you who ever thought, even for a moment, I want to do something; I want to contribute something; I want to give my time – this is the time. Don’t build a golden monument for me after I am dead. Maybe, I will create a situation that you cannot create a monument, because you don’t know where I went. I have still not decided on that. But, we don’t want to be a monument. Do you want me to become a monument for you? No. This must become a living energy on the planet. It should live in everyone’s hearts. When I was in London a couple of months ago, a multibillionaire there said, “Why don’t you build an ashram here? I will make sure everything happens for you.” I said, “I’m not a real estate person. I’m not going to build real estate around the world. My real estate is in the minds and hearts of people. We’re going to build that.”
If gratitude is bursting in your heart, keep it there. Let it melt your stupid brains, which come in the way. And anything that you ever thought you should do, please do it in the next six months to one year, because this is when it is needed.
