萨古鲁谈如何消除压力

Oscar-award winning film maker Shekar Kapur asks Sadhguru about stress, who looks at the shift we need to engineer within ourselves in order to get rid of stress.

奥斯卡获奖电影制片人谢加.卡普尔(ShekarKapur)问到萨古鲁关于压力的问题,萨古鲁认为我们需要从内在管理自己,以此消除压力。

 

Shekhar Kapur: Since I’m having the chance to interview you, I know people will say, “Well, why didn’t you ask about how to get rid of stress?” Is there a definition that we can assign to the idea of stress?

谢加.卡普尔:既然我有这个机会采访你,我知道人们会说,“那么为什么不问问如何消除压力呢?”我们对压力有没有一个定义呢?

 

Sadhguru: When I first went to the United States a few years ago, wherever I went, everybody was talking about “stress management.” I really didn’t get this because in my understanding, we manage things which are precious to us – our business, our family, our money, our wealth, our children. Why would anyone manage stress? It took me a while to understand that people have concluded that stress is a part of their lives.

萨古鲁:几年前我第一次到美国的时候,不管走到哪里,人们都在说“压力管理”。我很不理解,因为在我看来,我们管理的都是对我们很珍贵的东西——我们的事业,家庭,金钱,财富,孩子。为什么有人要管理压力呢?过了一段时间我才明白,人们已经把压力归为自己生活的一部分了。

 

Manage yourself, not your stress

管理你自己,而不是管理压力

Stress is not a part of your life. Stress is just your inability to manage your own system. Stress happens not because of the nature of your work. The Prime Minister is complaining of stress, the peon is also complaining of stress. In between, every other person is saying his job is stressful. And those who are unemployed also find their situation stressful. So you are suffering your job – if I get you fired, will you be joyful?

压力不是生活的一部分。你没有能力掌控自己的系统,就会感到压力。压力的产生,不是因为你工作的性质。首相在抱怨有压力,苦工也在抱怨有压力。每个人都在说自己的工作压力很大。那些没有工作的人,也觉得自己的处境压力重重。所以,你是在忍受你的工作——要是你被炒鱿鱼了,你会快乐吗?

 

Shekhar Kapur: No.

谢加.卡普尔:不会。

 

Sadhguru: No. So stress is obviously not about your job, isn’t it? It is just that you do not know how to manage your body, your mind, your emotions, your energy, your chemistry – you do not know how to manage anything. You are functioning by accident, so everything is stressful. If you get into a car where if you turn the steering wheel one way, the car goes in the opposite direction, you’ll be stressed, isn’t it?

萨古鲁:所以显而易见,压力不是工作带来的,对不对?就是因为你不知道如何管理自己的身体,头脑,情感,能量,化学反应——你什么都不会管理。你是偶然地无意识地在运作着,所以做什么都感到有压力。如果你开着一辆车,如果你往一个方向打方向盘,车子却朝着相反的方向走,你就会有压力,对不对?

 

Shekhar Kapur: Yeah.

谢加.卡普尔:是的。

 

Sadhguru: Right now, that’s the kind of mechanism you are driving. Without understanding anything about it, just by chance, you are blundering through life – so you will be stressful. Stress is not because of the nature of the activity that you are performing or because of life situations. Stress is simply because you do not know how to manage your own system. What is stressful for one person, someone else breezes through – isn’t it so?

萨古鲁:现在,你驾驶着的就是这样的机器。你对它一无所知,只是偶然地,跌跌撞撞地经历生活——所以你会感觉压力。有压力,不是因为你所从事的活动,也不是因为你所处的生活环境。有压力,只是因为你不知道如何管理你的系统。让一个人倍感压力的,另一个人却能轻松完成——是不是这样?

 

Shekhar Kapur: Correct.

谢加.卡普尔:确实是这样。

 

Changing the context of your life

改变生活的心境

Sadhguru: So stress is just an inability to manage the inner situation, not the outer situation. Essentially, the quality of our lives changes and transforms not because we change the content of our lives, but only because we change the context of our lives. If someone is living a beautiful life, it does not mean he is doing something different. When he wakes up in the morning, he also goes to the toilet. He also brushes his teeth. He also does the same things. But somehow, his life is magical and beautiful because of the context.

萨古鲁:所以,有压力,就是因为你没有能力管理好你的内在环境,而非外在环境。本质上,我们生活品质的改变和转化,不是因为我们改变了我们生活的内容,而是因为我们改变了我们生活的心境。如果有人过着很美妙的生活,那并不是指他在做些与众不同的事情。当他早上醒来的时候,他也要去上厕所,也要刷牙,也要做和你一样的事情。但是,他的生活像魔法般美妙,就是因为他的心境。

 

This could have happened to people when they fall in love with someone. When they fell in love, and everything becomes different because the context of their life has changed. But then, once they fall out of love, again, the context of their life changes and they become miserable. Changing the content of your life as you wish may not be possible because you need permission from the situations in which you exist, but changing the context is something that you can do willfully. You don’t need anyone’s permission. It is not at all situational.

当一个人爱上另一个的时候,就会这样。当人们陷入爱情的时候,一切都会变得不一样,因为他们生活的内在环境改变了。但是,一旦其中一个人走出爱情,他们生活内在环境又再次改变,他们会很痛苦。如你所愿地改变你生活的内容也许不太可能,因为你存在的外在环境要允许你改变才行,但是改变心境是你能按自己的意志所做的事情。你不需要任何人的允许。这完全不倚赖外在环境。

 

On a certain day, three men were working in one place. Another man came by and asked the first man, “What are you doing here?” The man looked up and said, “Are you blind? Can’t you see I’m cutting stone?” This person moved on to the next man and asked, “What are you doing here?” That man looked up and said, “Something to fill my belly. So I come here and do whatever they ask me to do. I just have to fill my belly, that’s all.” He went to the third man and asked, “What are you doing here?” That man stood up in great joy and said, “I’m building a beautiful temple here!” All of them were doing the same thing, but their experience of what they were doing was worlds apart.

有一天,三个人在同一个地方工作。另一个人经过这里,问第一个人道,“你在这里做什么?”第一个人抬起头来说,“你瞎了吗?难道看不见我在切割石头吗?”这个人又去问第二个人,“你在这里做什么?”那个人抬起头来说,“我在做能填饱我肚子的事情。我来这儿,他们叫我做啥我就做啥。我只需要填饱肚子就好。”这个人又去问第三个人,“你在这里做什么呢?”那个人站起身来,快乐极了,说道,“我在这里修建一座很美丽的寺庙!”这三个人在做同样的事情,但是他们对自己所做的事情的体验有天壤之别。

 

Every human being, every moment of his life could be doing whatever he is doing in any one of these three contexts – and that will determine the quality of his life, not what he is actually doing. How simple or complex an activity is doesn’t change the quality of your life. With what context you do it changes the quality of your life.

每个人在他生命的每一刻都可以用上述三种心境中的一种来做事——这将会决定他的生活品质。生活品质不是由他所做的事决定的。一件事是简单还是复杂,并不会改变你生活的品质。改变你生活品质的,是你做事时的心境。

 

爱与恩典

萨古鲁
