Three… and this is where the greatness of science comes in. And when I say greatness of science, I’m talking spirituality, because I believe spirituality is science. The responsibility of making it work for you is yours, nobody else’s. This is where spirituality misdirected all of us, this is where we missed. We feel God will take care of us. Science says, electricity will not take care of you. Electricity is a system. How to make it work for you, is up to you. Gravity will not work for you. It’s a system. How to make it work for you, is your responsibility. Everything is your responsibility.
The mistake that has happened, by religion and spirituality is, you feel I don’t have to exercise, I have to pray for health, and I’ll become healthy. I don’t have to be the best or the most competent in my work. I have to pray for wealth and wealth will come. Though we will never allow our children to do that. If our children ever tell us, “Father, I will not study, but in that time also I’ll pray, and I’ll go to the exam. God will write the exam for me.” None of you will agree.
And yet, in adult life we want to work the same way, but we want more prosperity. We want to continue to live a lazy life, but we want health. We are never there for the family, but we want extraordinary family life. That on which you invest time only will grow! If all the time, you’re investing time on the peripheral world and not my family, how will your family life improve? It cannot improve! If you are never there in the marriage, how will you improve the marriage? If you’re never there in parenting, how will you improve your parenting? Not possible. It’s never going to happen.
So, if you continue to find your casual relationship in the social media is growing, it has grown. You add five hundred people in Instagram, following you, following no? And now you have thousand eight hundred people. So, the casual relationship has grown. That’s where I’m investing time and market is responding to it. But relationship that truly matters to me the most in life is not growing, because I’m not investing time there. It’s not going to grow.
It’s not going to happen. The most important things science throws back at you is, to make it work for you and not against you, is up to you. It does not depend on anything else. Whether electricity is going to kill me or enliven me, for everything that I require is now up to me. Whether gravity is going to ensure that I’m never going to have skeleton pain or non-alignment to gravity is going to keep stressing my bone system all the time, and as a result, I’m all the time going to have some sort of pain, it’s up to me!
Only a stupid person will realize, because I’m using the phone so much, I’m developing spondylitis and continue to do that. Any person with one percent intelligence will realize, this is not a hundred KG weight, it’s only a phone, it can be lifted. If you look at it like this, the phone won’t work. Mahatria, I’m used to it like this, but this is not used to it! This is not supposed to be like this, entire day. This is supposed to be like this, once in a while, it can go. I will lift the whole thing. Otherwise, there’s no need to send messages at all! If I have to lose fifty followers and save my neck, might as well lose 50 followers and save your neck! Or else do it like this!
Cause-and-effect, whether it’s going to work against you or for you, does not depend on it, it depends on you. So even to make God work for you, you have to do certain things. That’s not up to God. God is ready to work for any one of you. God is ready to be the first member of every team. God is ready to be the first assistant of each one of you. Each one of you!
That energy which is running this entire existence is ready to run your life. But you won’t meditate, you won’t sit in non-doing, you’ll have time for every lousy shit activity in life but won’t have eleven minutes to let that energy express through you. Mahatria, pray for us. I’m telling you there’s no need! God is ready to work for you. At your disposal. But then I won’t do it! The responsibility of making all the laws work for you and not against you, is yours. Certain practices have to be practiced, for it to work for you.
