Every single human being has to take responsibility for watering the good in them
The tendency is to look at the things I am "doing", yet how can I improve myself?
So, of all the things that we do in this world, we put emphasis on what we do, but we don’t put the emphasis on the result of the things that we do. We keep repeating things that bear us no result. We keep doing things that do not make the fruit. But now, it has just become a ritual.
So we look at our problems, and we say, “Oh, we have this problem. We should resolve this problem.” We don’t look at how this problem came to be—because we’re doing the same things again and again and again. Einstein said, “Craziness…lunacy is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result.”
If you want to improve the quality of all the human beings on the face of this earth, then you have to understand that you’re a human being—and how can you improve yourself? Do you know who you are? And I’m not talking about spirituality here. I’m not talking about philosophy here. I’m talking about something very, very simple.
That, in you there is good, and in you there is bad. This is what I’m talking about. And if you perpetuate the bad, the bad will get strong; if you perpetuate the good, the good will get strong. That’s all.
Every single human being…every single human being has to take responsibility for watering the good in them. And this is so incredibly important.
