Karma is not the Problem – Sadhguru


It’s not good to get into spiritual academics Spiritual process should never become an academic subject unfortunately it has become for a lot of people So I Want you to relate this question to yourself Do not use these things because it becomes an academic subject now. There is a you’re assuming There is a karmic body you are assuming you have a mind now I’m saying you don’t really know, isn’t it? Okay, if you have a mind you must be able to locate it. Isn’t it? can you locate it? Can you locate where your mind is? Then you don’t know whether it is there or not. See suppose you walk into this hall this guy says. I’m in this hall You look everywhere you go behind this pillar post here there under this bench everything You don’t find the guy. Do you have a doubt or not whether these guy is in this room are not? Yes, or no? This is the, way isn’t it? So you look wherever you want. There is no mind Now this is not just playing with words you Need to understand you When if you want to explore this this must come from your context. from the context of your experience of life only then It will come out well for you right now you ask them academic question Anywhere, you go the same thing. What is the nature of the atman? What is the relationship between atman and Paramatman? You not seen atman you not seen paramatman. Why are you interested in the relationship? Atman Paramatman means, for those of you who do not know your common terminology in India this means the soul and God What’s the relationship? you not seen both. How do you know they have a relationship? Maybe they divorced If you look at the quality of life people are living probably they divorced isn’t it So don’t go into academics of spirituality spirituality is not an academic process It has to be an experience you’re longing to know So what you’re trying to ask is what is the impact of my past on my present working of my mind? You tell me can your mind function without memory? I wipe out all your memory would you have a thought? You have to build new memory otherwise there’ll be no taught isn’t it? So that’s a relationship without one the other cannot exist It’s only because of the Karmic memory the mind is functioning If there’s no memory. How would it function? It won’t function for a moment. so if you have some esoteric idea of Karma drop that Karma means Just the residual impact of all the actions you have performed in your body, in your mind, in your emotions, in your energies the residual imprint of that, so that is the Karma So without that memory your mind couldn’t even function. There is no such thing It is from that this is all coming Another way of looking at it is there is no such thing as mind. This is just karma There is a discriminatory buddhi which is not mind there is a discriminatory intellect and There is Karma. There is really no mind There is a huge mass of memory with a certain discretion. You can pick what you want But if you don’t have the discretion they just run right within yourself all the time This is all that’s happening this is all that happening with people Because the discriminatory mind or the intellect has not been sufficiently developed or applied to The past memory is running right. All the time it’s going on what happened 10 years ago its still bothering people because its just going on So whatever ideas you may have whatever Intentions you may have whatever ambitions you may have The Karma Will Overrun it because the necessary Discrimination and awareness is not brought in for this discretion. You need a certain level of awareness only if that is there Karma can be consciously used Memory is not a bad thing whatever the memory is whatever the the content of the Memory No memory is a bad thing you remember something horrible you remember something beautiful you remember all kinds of things This is not a problem the problem is you do not have the necessary Discretion to pick what you want when you want isn’t it? That’s all it is isn’t it? So all the horrible things that have happened on the planet Usually only what horrible things that are happening the news cameras go on take all this it’s on the film , it’s stored somewhere in a computer . is it biting you? no If it if it is played here also, it need not bite you only if you react it bites you isn’t it? The same thing here. It’s all just stored and kept if you react it will bite you If you consciously use it you can use it in so many different ways. It doesn’t matter. What is the recording? What your karma is? Is not the problem are you able to do you have the necessary awareness and Discretion to Employ this in the right sense or not. That’s all it is you
