The Mirror of Focus

Every moment in time becomes more meaningful when we have focus.

You realize, human beings are trying to figure out how to fly. I'm not talking about airplanes. I'm talking, just flying, you know? "Fly, fly!" people say, "Fly, fly, fly in your success, fly in your business." People are trying to fly. And you don't have to sprout wings to fly. All you have to do is cut the bondage. Cut the bondage. That's what's keeping you back.

Understand your nature. Your nature is to be content. Your nature is to be happy. Your nature is to want peace.

Change your focus. It's not that you don't have the ability to focus. You have the ability to focus on the wrong thing. Change your focus from all that, that's not going to bring you peace to something that is going to bring you peace. If you're going to search, search not for questions in your life. Search for that source that contains all the answers. If you’re going to search for something in your life, search for the mirror that will show you you!

Search for the mirror that will show you you, and when you find that mirror in your life, use it! Use that. Because without that, there is no difference in the dirt that doesn’t move and the dirt that does move.

To know others is wisdom. To know others is wisdom. But to know the self is enlightenment. So, you know other people. This is...you...maybe you’re wise. But do you know you?

One of the events, it was in Hindi, and I was saying, "So, what does a hungry person need?” Food, right? Right? Right? Wrong! Absolutely 100% wrong. One million percent wrong, quadri, quadri, quadri-zillion percent wrong.

A hungry person needs to eat the food. Right? Right? Right? If you were hungry, and as soon as you walked into the halva shop your hunger disappears? So if you think...see, this is the.... And you know why you think that way? Because this is what you have heard. And this is what you repeat.

“Like food to the hungry." You’ve heard this. And so you go, "Yes, that's what you need." I used to do the same thing. See, I'm not here trying, "I'm more holier than you," or this or that. I used to do the same thing. And one day I was thinking this: "How can that be? How can that be?”

I was flying. I felt hungry. The food...I was in the airplane, and the food was right there, behind me. But I was still hungry. So, I am bhookha; I am hungry. And the only thing that the bhookha needs, the hungry needs is the bhojan. Bhojan is right there.

But unless I get to eat it…I don't eat it, my hunger will stay intact. The same thing. Just because, just because you have the mirror, if you don't look in it, what good is it to get the mirror?

When you go to your work, don’t think about your family. Think about your work. Get it done! When you come home, don't think about your work! Think about your family. Focus. That’s what "focus" means. Focus.

I told that person who asked me that question in Taiwan. I said, "You know, you want to go party. You're young, you go party, you party. When you're partying, you're thinking about your work. And then, when you're doing your work, studying, you're thinking about partying." I said, "Cut the connection. When you're partying, don't think about studying. And when you are studying, don't think about partying. Focus. Focus, focus. It makes life easy.”

"Oh, I forgot this ... and I forgot this. And I forgot this. And oh, I have to do this. And I have to do that ... and I have to...." No. Focus. Focus in your life.

That's how you need to live. That's how you need to be.
