To be creative, do we need to be selfish or selfless? Sadhguru explains, the most beautiful things arise when we live with a sense of abandon.

想要变得有创造力,我们需要变得自私还是无私?萨古鲁解答道,当我们带着忘我感投入生活时,最美好的事情才会发生。

 

Q: Is art an expression of selflessness, selfishness or self-centeredness?

提问者:艺术是无私、自私还是以自我为中心的一种表达呢?

 

Sadhguru: Today, because of the disparities in society, we are raising a pitch of things like selflessness and service. These would be of no value to anyone if everyone was doing well. These are important only when someone is down.

萨古鲁:今天,由于社会的差异性,我们宣扬无私和服务。如果每个人都过得很好,无私和服务对任何人也就没有任何价值。只有当有人处于弱势时,它们才变得重要。

 

Be totally selfish – “My universe, I want it this way.” This selfishness is fine.

全然的自私——“我的宇宙,我想要事情如此发生。”这样的自私是没有问题的。

 

I really do not know what selflessness, self-centeredness or selfishness mean, because I do not think anyone has ever clearly defined selfishness. I know spiritual teachers are always talking about it but people have only been deceiving themselves for ages. When your existence here and your perception of people and the world around you is rooted in yourself, how can you be selfless? Nobody can be selfless. If you try, you will only pretend to be selfless.

我真的不知道无私、以自我为中心或者自私是什么意思,因为我不认为有任何人曾清晰定义过什么是无私。我知道灵性老师们经常谈论无私,但是人们一直以来都只是在欺骗自己。当你的存在以及你对他人和周围世界的感知是扎根于你自己时,你如何变得无私?没有人能做到无私。如果你尝试无私,你只能假装变得无私。

 

Tell me, can you do something that is not selfish? “I want all of you to be blissed out” – this is also about “I want.” It is still selfish. A mother takes care of her child not because of selflessness but because of a deep selfishness, because that is what gives her most joy and happiness. Someone is willing to die for his country not out of selflessness but with a very strong sense of selfishness because that is what is going to fulfill him – that is why he does it. And there is nothing wrong with being selfish. It is just that people are generally kanjoos (miserly) about their selfishness. At least in your selfishness, be utterly, absolutely selfish. The best that you want for yourself, you want that for the entire universe. Be totally selfish – “My universe, I want it this way.” This selfishness is fine.

告诉我,你能做些什么不是出于自私的事吗?“我想要你们每一个人都变得狂喜”——这也是关于“我想要”。这仍是自私。一位母亲照顾她的孩子不是出于无私而是出于一种深层的自私,因为这能给她带来最大的快乐和幸福。一个人愿意为国捐躯,不是出于无私而是出于强烈的自私,因为这能令他感到生命的圆满——这就是为什么他会这样做。自私是没有任何问题的,只是人们通常吝于他们的自私。至少在你的自私中,你要绝对地、彻底地自私。你想要给自己最好的那个东西,你想要整个宇宙都得到。全然的自私——“我的宇宙,我想要事情如此发生。”这样的自私是没有问题的。

 

The problem is not of selflessness or selfishness, the problem is of limited boundaries that people set – what is you and what is me. This is what yoga is about. The word “yoga” means “union.” What is you, me, this, that – everything has become one in your experience.

问题不是出在自私或是无私上,问题在于人们设置的界限-——什么是你和什么是我。这就是瑜伽所关乎的一切。“瑜伽”一词的意思是“合一”。什么是你,我,这个,那个——所有的一切都在你的体验中合为一体。

 

Coming to creativity, if something beautiful has to come out of a human being, the most important thing is a certain sense of abandon – who you are has been forgotten for a moment. That is when you sing beautifully, dance beautifully, paint beautifully, that is when you can do something beautifully. Today, because we have been overtaken by the European mode of doing things, we think of systems all the time. Systems will work, but too much of system will kill you in the end. If you learn to do something with abandon, it may not turn out the same way every time, but there is beauty to your action – not because of the result, simply for the action.

说到创造性,如果人类想要创造出一些美丽的东西,最重要的是一定的忘我感——那一刻你忘了自己是谁。只有那时,你的歌唱、舞蹈、绘画才能变得美妙。只有那时,你才能美秒地去做一件事。如今,由于我们深受欧洲人的做事模式影响,以致我们总想着什么都系统化。系统化是有效的,但过度的系统化最终将会置你于死地。如果你学会能忘我地做事,也许并非每次都产生相同的结果,但你忘我的行为却透着美——不是从结果去看,而是你的行动本身即透出美。

 

If you have no sense of abandon in your life, you will suffer life after some time. Everywhere, the world has been infected with mindfulness right now. This country has always invested in how to be mindless in your activity, that your mind does not come in. If your mirror is well-polished, you become a reflection of the creator; or at least a reflection of the creation.

如果你没有带着忘我感投入生活,一段时间之后,你会受到生活的折磨。如今这个世界的每一处都感染上了”正念”。而这个国家一直致力于如何让你在活动时保持无念,思绪不会入侵。如果你的镜子是擦得锃亮的,你会变成创造者的映像;或者至少是创造的映像。

 

爱与恩典

萨古鲁
