Dealing With Negative Thoughts  | Sadhguru


Welcome to Sync Mind. This audio session combines Sadhguru’s
speeches with Binaural Beats Technology. Please Use Headphones
and Listen Carefully. Sync Mind presents:
Dealing With Negative Thoughts | Sadhguru All you need to do is,
just be the way you want to be. How do you want to be? That’s all. It’s that simple but it’s also that far away, isn’t it? It’s that simple; after all you want to be joyful; just be that way – who is stopping you? ‘No, no, they are doing this.’
See, now… you don’t want them to do what
they want to do (Laughter) but you want to do what you want to do.
(Laughter) This is a problem. If you want to do what you want to do, you must also be okay with everybody doing what they want to do. That’s the only way because freedom is a two way
stream, isn’t it? Yes? Now, is somebody physically torturing you? If that is so, you come; we’ll
take you away (Laughter), because then you need to be protected. Nobody is physically torturing you, they just doing what they want to do; they are saying what they want to say. Or they’re just saying just what they know, isn’t it? So, who is causing the mess within you? Yourself. Because somewhere you believe, if you become angry,
if you become miserable, it may pay off and it does sometimes. If there are more miserable people
around you who value your misery, it pays off, isn’t it? Yes? If you act miserable in the house you get many things; if you
are joyful maybe you don’t get Isn’t it so? So, you learnt the trick but what you need to understand
is the trick is double edged. If you are miserable, whatever the hell you
get, it doesn’t mean anything. If you are joyful, you don’t get anything,
so who cares? So, this is not just your trick. Everybody around you has
always been playing this trick and you thought that’s the way; but, what is it that you want? You want to be joyful or miserable? So, just be the way you want to be. Does it infringe on anybody? Does it infringe on anybody? Now, I want to smoke, if I do, now this is going to cause some disturbance to somebody. I want to just be happy. Is it infringing on anybody’s anything? Is it, I am asking? Participants: No. Sadhguru: So, you be the way you
want to be, who is stopping you? You cannot do whatever you want to do, but you can be the way you want to
be, isn’t it? Yes? Can anybody stop you? Others need not even know that you are
joyful. If they like a miserable face, give it to them (Laughter). If they like miserable faces, give it to them, but you can still
be joyful, isn’t it (Laughter)? Right now we’ll experiment, okay? Right now, lot of faces are looking joyful. I want you to maintain the
same joy and look miserable. Do it now (Laughter). Do it now, let me see; you
don’t smile at me (Laughter). Show me a miserable face;
being joyful within you. You must practice (Laughter). Please do it; see, this will be
needed in your home. If you are all the time ha, ha, ha,
ha they’ll… they’ll go crazy (Laughter). Sometimes they expect a
miserable face (Laughter). What’s so spiritual about you, all
this damn yoga, he, he, he, he and all? What’s the problem? Action should be the way
the situation demands, have I not been insisting
on this all the time? But you tell me which is first, your way of being is
first or action is first? Which comes first? Your way of being! So, if you say I want to be joyful, establish that. Action, as the situation demands. Some people like misery, some people
like laughter, some people like crying do it; I do everything. Please practice life in the
sathsang; that’s why you are here encounter with truth, you know It should happen here,
not after you go home. What I am telling you is, everything that you do is actually act. Isn’t it so? Either you do it consciously or you do it compulsively. If you do it compulsively,
you think it’s real, but actually it’s an act.
Isn’t it so? Everything is cooked up in your
head, isn’t it, whatever you do? So, it’s anyway an act. So, do you want to do it consciously or do you want to do it compulsively, that’s all the choice is. So, you do it compulsively
and you think it’s real it’s a foolish way to exist. It’s anyway an act; at least do it consciously then life will be beautiful. If you do it compulsively,
it looks like a trap. It’s not a trap. Life is not a trap because the exit is always there, wide open. Yes or no? Yes or no? Sadhguru: Life is not a trap; the exit is always open. Everybody is trying to dodge the exit. No? So, if the exit was closed, only then
you can call it a trap, isn’t it? The exit is always wide open; one moment if you don’t take
care, you’ll be dead. The exit is wide open. Your whole life is to somehow not to reach the exit. Isn’t it so? So, it is not a trap. It is just that, if you think that your acts are all real, then it feels like a trap. Whatever you think, feel and do is your act. Isn’t it so? Yes or no? When you do not realize it’s your act, you think it’s God-given instructions. You will start hearing voices. When you hear voices, it’s very clear you need
treatment (Laughter). So, if you ask this one (Referring to
oneself), this wants to be as pleasant as possible, isn’t it? Yes? You want to know the highest state
of pleasantness. Isn’t it so? So who is stopping you? ‘No, but they are doing this.’ They are doing what they like. You be the way you want to be. If you establish your way of being, then whatever you do is just a question of the situation. Depending on what kind of situations exist, accordingly we act. ‘No, no, I want to do my own
things.’ There is no your own thing. ‘No, I want to become a IT professional.’
There is no such damn thing. Because you are born today in India,
you are thinking of IT professional. Suppose you were born here 1,000 years ago you’d be thinking of fishing in the ocean, isn’t it? Yes or no? Action is as the situation
demands and offers, isn’t it? How to be, is yours. If you have decided how to be, be that way, perform action as it is necessary.

  8. Sync Mind thank you for all you do to share these videos they are sincerely appreciated

  9. Thank you sadhguru

  10. I usually like sadguru's videos…but I don't agree with him this time. Many a times we are not choosing to be miserable or use it for attention, but we genuinely have emotional pain …..sometimes it can last for many years ..

  11. That was a very very pleasant experience. Thank you SyncMind and Sadhguru ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. He didn't even understand what negative thoughts are ?????
    He is talking something else..

  13. The canned laughter diminishes the message

  14. He talked deeply … few people understood.

  15. I cannot really thank sync mind enough
    Ive been following your channel for a while now nd its never been so relaxing even when i listen to my fav songs.
    Im in love with your nd sadhguru's work towards to concern of billions of people..
    I hope this channel gets a world wide recognization so everyone can find peace in themselves rather than in someone else's
    Thank you both.
    Love from incredible INDIAโค

  16. Thank you Sadhguru.

  17. Guruji bless us. We want to meet you came there . It's possible only with your blessings ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™
