A Friend of mine asked me If we want to succeed in life, what plays a major role- Faith, God, effort or luck?
I just remember Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev- The Founder of Isha Foundation in India. He Said” Weather they play a role in being successful or not something we need to bother about. It is more important to focus on making the incisive effort.
”Do not try to be capable of something, just enhance your perception and intelligence whatever comes your way”
”If You want to be truly successful you must be able to see everything just the way it is without distortion. If you can see everything just the way it is, life becomes a play”
For these things to happen, you need perception and intelligence. That is all you must do in your life- constantly look for ways to enhance your perception and intelligence. The rest will anyway happen. And this is one thing that humanity is unfortunately not doing.
”There Is No Recipe For Success”
Do not try to put up a recipe for your success. Real success happens when you use yourself to full potential. It does not matter whether you become a doctor, politician, Musician, Artist, a Yogi or whatever; success means you are living your life to your full potential. If that has to happen, you need perception and an active intelligence. ” How do I grow my intelligence?” Don’t worry about that. The important thing is to enhance your perception. If you are able to see life just the way it is, you have the necessary intelligence to your intelligence will work against you. Intelligent people on this planet are generally the most miserable people. This is simply because they have an active intelligence but no perception of life.
As I said, ”People today are trying to broaden their minds, which may make one socially successful, but not truly successful”. If you want to be truly successful, you must be able to see everything just the way it is, without distortions. If you can see everything just the way it is, life becomes a play, A Game. You can play it joyfully and you can play it well it well for sure. If you can play it well, people will say you are successful.
”Live Your Life As There Is No Tommorrow”
Once you have come as a human being, the potential of what it means to be a human- all the dimensions of who you are- must be experienced. Only then would I say you are successful. And the ability to explore that potential, the daring to explore that potential, will come to you when you come to a state within yourself where there is no fear of suffering, that no matter what the life situation is, your experience of life not alter itself.
”At Last Real Success as Sadgurus View”
He says ” He is not even concerned about the success. If it happens it will be beneficial for many people. But even if everything fails, I will still be blissful. I will do my best, there is no question about that because I have nothing to lose and nothing to gain whichever way, but the success of the activity depends on a variety of situation, and on cooperation from my people. However, How successful we are in terms of world’s eye will not determine my experience of life.
It is said that” If you have to find fulfillment if you have to know the joy of doing something, you will only know it when your action is total-one hundred percent. In everything that you are doing, If you are absolutely one hundred percent, you will notice your action will have a certain sense of exuberance. My activity stretches for almost 18 to 20 hours a day, seven days of the week, 365 days a year. Maybe in someone else’s mind, this would look like slavery. It is not so for me because I spend my days in absolute exuberance, and that is so far from people around me. This is a success, If you want to name it that way, but what I would say is, ”This is Life”.
