Be Loved : HH Sri Sri Ravishankar

Weekly Knowledge #88 Fort Lauderdale, Florida 12 Feb 1997 USA

BE LOVED - Sri Sri Vani 

You don't need to worry to maintain knowledge. When knowledge is lodged in you as wisdom, it will never leave you. Wisdom lodges itself in your heart. Make the Divine your Valentine (your sweet Beloved). This is the last thing to do and the first thing to do. Keep your heart in a safe place; it is too delicate. Events, small things make strong impressions on it. And you cannot find a better place than the Divine to keep your heart safe and your mind sane. When you keep your heart in the Divine, the moving time, the passing events, will not be able to touch it, will not create a scar. A precious stone needs a setting around it, gold or silver, to hold it and to wear it; so wisdom and knowledge are that setting around the heart which will hold it in the Divine.

See the Divine in your Valentine and make the Divinity your Valentine (your sweet beloved). Just BE. . .and know that you are LOVED... That is BELOVED.

How to tackle Laziness : Q&A HH Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

# Tackling laziness #
Guru Ji, kindly guide me to turn to spirituality again and again, because laziness blocks me to do this. Please advice how can I tackle laziness.

Sri Sri: To tackle laziness, you should take a vow for a limited period of time. Next 20 days I am not going to be lazy. In between, if you become lazy then from that day onwards for another 20 days take a vow again, ‘I am not going to be lazy.’
Whenever you break a vow, you say from that time you will continue with double the enthusiasm, and double the vigor. That seems to have worked for many people.

# Number one, taking a vow, taking a determination.

# Second would be attending to your food.

# Third would be to do some Pranayama. When there is energy, when there is Prana, it doesn’t allow you to simply sit and be lazy.

# Fourth, check vitamin levels in your body. If D3 is low, which more people seem to be having these days, or B12 is low in your body, then you don’t feel like doing anything. Morning you wake up and you feel too tired. This is the sign of vitamin D3 going very low in your body, because we eat all
this fast food.
E series of preservatives from food block the sun rays from getting processed into the system.
Though you’re in the sun, the D3 doesn’t get into your blood stream. This happens.
That is why we must avoid all these preservatives, ketchups and other such items which has all these chemical preservatives. What do you say? How many of you agree with me on this? (Many in the audience raise hands)

## We should go back to organic natural food.

Signs Of Love - HH SriSri Ravi Shankar

Here are the signs of love!

1. When you love someone you don't see anything wrong in them. Even if you see some fault in them you justify the fault and say, 'Well, everyone does it. It is normal'
2. You think you have not done enough for them. The more you do, the more you want to do for them
3. They are always on your mind
4. Ordinary things become extraordinary. For Ex., a baby winking at its grandmother becomes an extraordinary event
5. You want them to be yours, exclusively 
6. You get hurt even over small things.

When you love someone, you want to see them always happy and you want them to have the best. 

You wish someone of what they don't have, right?
When you say, 'Best Wishes', you imply that they are not best NOW.
I tell you, NOW is the BEST.
If you realize this tomorrow can only be better - Sri Sri on Love

Valentines Day : Only one who has renounced can truly love : HH SriSri Ravi Shankar

Only one who has renounced can truly love. To the degree you have renounced, to that degree you have the ability to love. Often people think those who renounce cannot love, and those who love cannot renounce. This is because so-called renunciants do not seem to be in love, and so-called lovers are very possessive and are in need. True love is non-possessive and brings freedom, and renunciation is nothing but freedom. Only in freedom can love fully blossom. When in love you say, "I want nothing, I just want this." Renunciation is, " I don't want anything. I am free." In love there is no other need. Renunciation is having no need. Love and renunciation, although appearing to be opposites, are two sides of the same coin. Only renunciation can sustain love and joy. Without renunciation love turns into misery, possessiveness, jealousy and anger. Renunciation brings contentment and contentment sustains love. Without renunciation one gets discontented, frustrated, sad, fearful, suspicious, analytically. And the whole soap opera begins. And this is what we find in society , don't we? The so-called renunciants have run away from life frustrated and disappointed. Real renunciation is born out of knowledge and wisdom, knowledge of life in the background of time and space and in the context of this magnanimous universe. - Sri Sri on Love
