Don’t Be A Calamity
Sadhguru says, if anyone who does not know how to manage his own body, mind, emotions and energies is managing situations around him, he is only managing them by accident, not by intent.
You educate yourself, you pursue careers, you build families or you run after your ambitions, you do so many things because you believe fulfilling those things will bring you happiness. After doing all that, if happiness is going down instead of multiplying, that means you are a bad manager of yourself.
If anyone who does not know how to manage his own body, mind, emotions and energies is managing situations around him, he is only managing them by accident, not by intent. When you manage situations by accident, you are a potential calamity. Anxiety becomes a natural part of your life.
Fundamentally, management means we want to decide the course of our destiny. You want to have a certain kind of situation, both inward and outward. Today, in the process of managing a situation, we are destroying human beings. This kind of management is no good. After all, the basic intent of every management is human wellbeing.
If management is for human wellbeing, it is not only about producing something or making profit. People should rise to their full potential, not just in terms of work, but as human beings.
If people work together, they should be able to rise to the peak of their love, peace and compassion within themselves. If this kind of management has to happen, where you and the people around you rise to their peak, then you have to spend a certain amount of time in focusing on your inner management. If this does not happen, you will only manage situations by accident.
