Sadhguru – Karma is not some punishment and reward !


one question like we share that we meet
people we meant to meet or is it a destiny luck of fate have you just
fallen in love with something no no because I don’t want to disturb the
romance see look at it this way since you woke up today morning till this
moment let’s leave the sleeping time since you
came awake fully from that moment to this moment your body has been doing its
things isn’t so physical activities is happening both outwardly and inwardly
happening or no that’s why we’re alive it’s happening mental activity has been
happening emotional activity is happening energy activity is happening
how much of these four dimensions of activity did you perform consciously
from the moment you came awake till now how much do you think what percentage
what percentage well below 1% believe me when you
perform activity consciously less than 1% over 99% is unconscious everything
will look accidental, isn’t it? everything looks like divine
intervention because 99% of the time you’re unconscious do one thing when you
drive today – wherever you drive, 99% of the time
close your eyes and drive you will see how many people you will meet
but if you drive with your eyes open fully conscious you’re not going to meet
anybody like with this with the bang things will happen in a completely
different way how conscious we are will determine how much of your destiny you
determine how unconscious you are determines how much of your destiny is
accidental everything that’s accidental we want to attribute it to some other
force elsewhere now this must stop we must understand it is we is there no
other force of course you didn’t make the creation or did I all right you did
not create this creation nor did I create this creation there is but that
is a different dimension altogether and what is happening with you right now is
entirely your making from where you come from in India is the only culture on the
planet which constantly told you your life is your karma. karma means you’re
doing your life is your making whatever may be happening you may be able
to logically figure out why it is so you may not be able to figure out but still
you know one thing if this is happening to me
is my making this is the greatest empowerment you can have when you
understand my life is my making whatever happened till now it doesn’t matter
how will you make your tomorrow I’m asking you if you clearly clearly know 100%
my life is my making how will you make the next moment how will you make a
tomorrow how will you make your future in the most beautiful way isn’t it so
that’s what needs to happen Questioner: I want to know about how much of our life is governed by karma and how much is our free will? so many people I’ve heard said everything
in your life is governed by karma and the others, like, we make choices. So how if we make a choice is are we creating the karma from our choice? Sadhguru: It is by your thought, bt your emotion and your action – this is how you perform your action, isn’t
it? So karma means, till now whatever you did, the residual impact of that is definitely
there upon your life. But this moment’s karma is in your hands. Yesterday’s karma, you cannot change, but this moment’s karma is in your hands. This moment karma this moment’s karma could be a karma of
freedom or of bondage. If you do if you handle this moment in a certain way, you will be free from everything that was
yesterday. If you do not handle it that way, yesterday will rule you today; this is also your karma, this is also your See, please do not understand karma as some kind of punishment and reward. It’s not like that. It is just that everything that you touch
with your mind, with your emotion, with your body, a bit of it sticks to you; the residual action is remaining with you. Yesterday whatever you did, is it not there
in your memory? Is it not there in your memory? Is it not influencing what you do today? Yesterday what you thought, is it there in your memory? Is it not influencing your thought and action
today? Yesterday what you felt in your emotions, is it not there in your memory? Memory is not just mental memory. Memory is on many different levels; it is in your body, it’s in your chemistry, it’s in your energy, in many different back-up systems are there
for your energy… for your memory. So this memory is acting itself out. But this moment if you wish to be conscious, this memory you can use it whichever way you
want. You can look back on your life and laugh at
all the stupid things that you did. You can look back on your life and cry, ‘Why did I do all this stupid things?’ Or you can look back on your life and learn
that, ‘Okay, I did all these stupid things yesterday, what is the smart thing that I can do today?’ Same karma. Yesterday’s karma is same karma but this moment’s karma can be different depending upon how consciously you act this
moment, isn’t it? This moment’s karma can be either karma
of sweetness or bitterness. Yesterday might have been sweetness or bitterness; you cannot change that. Can you change what you did yesterday? You cannot change that. But what you make out of it today, that you can change, that is always in your hands, always and always, it’s in your hands. ‘

    The MOMENT I commented this and the MOMENT you are reading this, is the same.
    It's all a show by the divine. Shut up and go along. If you make your own show then you better be a good director.

    You are the creator of your life so you are the creator of your karma so once you take control of the fact that you are the creator of your reality then you will understand that you're also the creator of your karma is a me it's like the golden rule or whatever role you do unto others how you want done to you I mean it's fairly simple I guess just makes sense once you actually understand that you are your own Creator and how you live your life and how you choose to do things they today is what decides your karma and how I am receiving it I could be wrong though
