Sadhguru: Namaskaram, Mithali, I hear that you are a great hitter of the ball, just keep hitting the ball and everybody’s opinion will change, hahahaha, people have their opinions about everything, but why should it matter to you or anybody, because other people’s opinions will matter to us only when we are not very clear about what we are doing, so instead of trying to battle with other people's opinion, it's best that we strive to create clarity of what we are doing, and why we are doing what we are doing.
If this clarity arises within us, other people’s opinion will not matter。But will people not have opinions about us? They will have, it is their right to have their opinions, it is like “a Kannada Poem by Akka Mahadevi”. What this means is, you built a house in the mountains and in the jungle, now you are afraid of the animals, you shouldn't have been there. Now you built a home in the market place, and you are afraid of the noises of the market place, that's not the right place for you to be.
Now, you are living in the society, and you are afraid of what other people say, no, this is part of social life, somebody will always say something. Well today it is magnified because of social media, but forever people have been having opinions, at one time you had to battle with just two or three or five people’s opinions, today you have to battle with five million people’s opinions. Because they are all out there, expressing themselves, it’s perfectly fine, they can say what they want, but the most important thing is to bring absolute sense of clarity into our lives as to what we are doing and why we are doing what we are doing. If this is clear to us, opinions will fly, and opinions will change, you just hit the ball well, you will see everybody’s opinions will change, hahahaha.
