Spirit Of Enquiry – Art of Living Wisdom

Question – Gurudev, is spirit of
enquiry most important or dispassion?

Gurudev Sri Sri – When you watch television, what is important, seeing or hearing?Be natural. Don’t sit with too many concepts. Free the freedom. Don’t burden yourself with too much understanding. Too much analysis is as bad as no analysis at all. Take the middle path. You need to breathe in, that is passion. You need to breathe out, that is dispassion. Both are essential. You can’t say I only want dispassion. What do you want dispassion for? There is something in you which is
beyond dispassion. Dispassion is breathing out. Why should one breathe out? So that you can take a breath in again. Why are you breathing in? So that you can breathe out again. So, in life, all three are needed – passion, dispassion and compassion.

Why is it recommended to have a no-mind (thoughtless) state?

Gurudev, why is it recommended to have a no-mind (thoughtless) state to experience divinity?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar :
Let me tell you a small story. It was a full moon night and there was a poet sitting in a boathouse. He had a small lamp in front of him, a candle and he was writing poetry. And it so happened there was a wind and the candle got blown out. When the candlelight was put off by the wind, at that moment the moon rays were reflecting in the home. He suddenly said, “See, this small candle was obstructing my view of the moon.”

That moment there was an ecstasy, a joy. The moonlight was so beautiful, “Ah!” He suddenly realized what he was missing. How come he couldn’t see this moonlight before? It was there all the time, but he couldn’t experience the joy of the moon, the fullness of the moon. A tiny candle was obstructing the view. See, you are looking at the sun or the space, and a small particle of dust is sufficient enough to cover your eyes, overshadow the whole view.

A small particle of dust can take away your vision of the Infinity. One single thought in the mind can restrict the awareness, the totality of your awareness. How big is your mind? How vast is your life? There are so many things in life. One small, little insignificant thought, insignificant thing, can clog and cloud your whole awareness. It can limit your mind. And any limitation means a distance from that pure love.
