Sadhguru on How To Never Get Angry or Bothered By People

Angella Nazarian: Visionary women is a volunteer run organization And I know that every single person who is here is giving their time to one organization or another and the fact that you have nine million volunteers and you were talking about the relationship between
volunteerism and willingness And that it’s through willingness that you
uplift your consciousness, if I’m reporting you correctly, or I’m understanding it. In some ways, talking about how it could be a doorway to becoming a bigger person than who you are. Sadhguru: See.. Before we come to women, first thing is visionary. What a vision means is, say everybody has desires. Desire is an incremental way of enhancing our life. Today you desire, I must have a home, tomorrow your desire, I must have this money, tomorrow, you desire something else. These are incremental ways of
arranging and rearranging our lives which are needed to do a few things. When you say I’m a visionary, what you’re saying is, I have a larger desire which is not about just incremental improvement of my life. Desire is about me, always. Vision is an all-inclusive process. So this itself is a phenomenal thing,
if people instead of having desires, if they have a vision. Vision is always all-inclusive. Desire is personal. Desire leads to incremental changes and improvements. Vision can transform the whole situation. (Music) (Laughter) I like music. (Laughter) So, about willingness,
because you said you’re a volunteer. To be a volunteer, a volunteer means somebody who is doing something willingly, right? There’s no other compulsion. There are no financial compulsions.
There are no social compulsions. There is no something else. You want to do something willingly. So when you’re a willing participant right now,
you’re a volunteer. I’m asking all of you, right now, are you compelled to be here or are you here voluntarily? Audience : Voluntarily Sadhguru: Oh, thank you Because I have spoken to conscripted people also. I have spoken in the prisons,
I have spoken in many places. So you are here willingly. You are doing something willingly,
is the fundamental of your joy, isn’t it so? Hello? However simple or stupid or idiotic activity it is, ‘I am doing something willingly’
makes a world of difference, isn’t it so? Hello? The difference between heaven and hell is just this. You are doing something willingly, that’s your heaven. You are doing something unwillingly, that’s your hell. Hmm? We have already taken on attitudes
what we like and what we don’t like. I like this person, I don’t like this person. Now with this person, I will do things willingly. With this person, I will do things unwillingly. This may be two people, two aspects of life,
two communities, two nations, two.. many things. This I will do willingly, this I do unwillingly. This means, I have decided in my mind,
this is good, this is bad. When I hear, even on national news channels, good guys and bad guys .. it just.. Once you have this kind of thing,
you are going to be disastrous to the planet. It’s just a question of time. The moment you decide this is a good person,
this is a bad person, this is gone deep into American society. No. There are no good people and bad people. Everybody is oscillating between the two. If you create a very pleasant wonderful atmosphere,
everybody behaves wonderfully. If you create an unpleasant atmosphere,
a whole lot of people act nasty. Yes or no? There are joyful people and miserable people, but
there are no good people and bad people. (Applause) The moment we think we are good, we are entitled to destroy the bad, isn’t it? Oh, we’ve been destroying a lot of people for a long time, time to stop that. Because.. human beings are in different
levels of experience and understanding. Variety of people. Anybody who’s not like you is obviously bad, isn’t it? Isn’t it so? Those who are not like me must be bad people. Because the basis of goodness and what you think is goodness is decided by you. No, you have no business to do that. Willing means this. I’m just willing. I’m a hundred percent yes to life. I am not yes to this one, no to this one. No, I am just yes and yes to life. If you are a hundred percent yes to life,
you are a volunteer. You have become a willing life. You have become so willing that
you have no will of your own. People ask me
‘Sadhguru, how do you operate with all these people, all kinds of horrible questions they’re asking,
they’re doing this, they’re doing that?’ I said ‘My life is not about them. It’s about me’ It’s about how I am. This is about me. It doesn’t matter how they are, that’s their choice. But how I am is my choice. This is my way. No matter what they do. I’m like this. Because I have not given that freedom to anybody
that somebody can freak me, somebody can make me angry, somebody can make me happy, somebody can make me unhappy. These privileges I kept to myself. It’s time you do that too. Because if somebody else can decide what can happen within you right now, isn’t this the ultimate slavery? Hmm? Isn’t this? Someone else can decide what should happen within you, what happens around you of course,
so many people decide, hmm? What happens around us is not hundred percent ours, but what happens within me must be my making,
isn’t it? Right now, just about anybody can freak anybody
because they are not volunteers. They are unwilling. Volunteering means you have no will of your own. You can do whatever is needed. You know, we are a volunteer organization, this means all kinds of people .. (Laughs) Most of them are not qualified
for the jobs that they’re doing. (Laughter) And I cannot fire them because they’re volunteers. (Laughter) Angella Nazarian: It’s true. Sadhguru: So people keep coming up to me on a daily basis, ‘Sadhguru, I can’t work with this person,
she is so horrible, I can’t do it’ I tell them ‘See in this world, this is the sort of people who exist. like this, like this, like this, like this,
this is the kind of people there are. But if you want to work with ideal people, you must go to heaven and today. But if you think, what you’re doing is very significant, you must learn to work with all these horrible people. This is how the world is. If you think what you’re doing is very significant, you learn to work with all kinds of people. You will see, horrible people will do wonderful things. Yes? But if you want to work with ideal people,
you won’t find any. I haven’t found one yet. (Laughter) There’re all kinds of … mixed bags but (laughs) if you are willing, that you are not yes and no, yes to one, no to another, you’re simply one big yes, you will find a way. Angella Nazarian: Thank you so much. I always say that the resistance to life.. (Applause)


  1. If you think what you are doing is significant, then you must learn to work all these horrible people. this is how the world is. if you learn to work with all kinds of people, then you will see horrible people doing wonderful things.

  2. This fellow has tremendous mistakes in his sayings. May be you will be doomed forever if you obey to this session.

  3. It's because of such people in India only we are producing great people like Modi who walks the talk. Sadhguru makes us look every aspect of life with a different perspective and there in lies the difference. These are practical solutions for key challenges facing people of modern society and we need people with spiritual wisdom to answer our questions….And every time we pose a question the solution he gives is so convincing…Now since everything is of our making we must not blame anyone for our conditions which we have brought forth upon ourselves.

  4. O.K. that's wonderful…. Sooo, it's all [just a reaction to] y/our perception! There are only 'people' [folk], and some do 'bad' things [i.e take UN_desirable actions having 'UN'_ consequences] as in case of malignant narcissists, s0ci0paths and criminally insane psych0paths…
    From a perspective of the latter, it may not even be a 'bad', but neccesary action! [Hir0shima, Dresden, Iraqi children/Madeleine Albright, etc.]
    Never holding them$elves Resp0nsible/Acc0untable, thus bLameless, they will argue [their] victims [of rape, b0mbings, etc.] br0ught it up0n thEmsElves [karma]! Some will go as far as to imagine all of US being in a computer-simulated h0l0graphic UNiVerse ['matrix'], where up is/can be d0wn, Left is/can be Right [or A rite], and g00d is often bad, or vise versa… and they preach 'Ultimate Relativism'! It's that easy [but B.S.!]!

  5. I always been flattered by your words and I priase you.but my inner feeling is disturbed by other it always depend on people around me . How often I tried but I failed. Please give me some key through which I could save my inner feeling from outside world.

  6. Slight contradiction. First he said if u create a good environment people are good, but bad environment makes people bad. Then he says you should not give anyone the right to affect what happens inside.

  7. He is great but, Yes there are bad people.. Life Code by Dr Phil.. lots of narrastistic people now days.. I just choose to not let them take up much of my time & I seek to surround myself with peace & harmony.🙌

  8. Aggression and non aggression each have a place wisdom is not to avoid them but rather to place them at the correct time of their usage.

  9. Thankyou rf for EnLiGhTeNiNg me and Sharing Sadhguru's Wisdom !

    May we @LL Learn to Listen and Let Go of Our Fears, eTc that Keep us 'prisonners' of our Mind's negative thoughts

  10. That was a very long, roundabout way to point out that attaching that particular verb to the other word, "visionary", was an act of selfishness. Flew right over her head. The rest was just him giving her face, because that's his style.

  11. I can't believe he was able to dodge that phonecall.. He's been meditating for years to obtain this knowlege i would have gone on a rampage!

  12. Good advice – although some people are closer to ideal and others closer to horrible – voluntarily it is up to you with whom you consort.

  13. I strongly believe that the Indian hosts need to learn from the Western world how to interview, question even debate with grace.. many Indians are so arrogant while asking him questions.. As if you defeat him or something.. Really appreciate first world ppl

  14. Sadguru, if someone is having different behaviour with different people, and is unable to find your own character, what should we do ??!

  15. He is talking bullshit…. American society is a Christian society and the bible clearly states that we have to differentiate between good and bad, and recognise unrighteous teachers in order to be saved. And the Bible is the foundation of all prosperity and wisdom that made America the world's greatest country. The people of America must get closer to God and do not change their minds when the situation is changed.

  16. How not to get mad is simple: Just smoke a toke, then put 'em on, and drift away (into fantasy)… Lol 😀🚬

  17. What I wanna know is specifically how to not care. How to not let people in because people pop into my mind all the time and it distracts me.

  18. So viele dumme Frauen sitzen hier, über fünfzig Jahre alt, wissen aber immer noch nicht "what is life" 😂😂😂, bravo Guru you have good 😏👍👍👍.

  19. Sadghuru if you say this ? Y do you get angry inside about the past when people invaded in present time like the British?!?!?

  20. Please sir why did you call Mr. Javed Akhtar names on the national tv. Why could you not control your temper then? Would you like to further improve your own temper?

  21. He s my inspiration now..I just want to meet him….And get blessed each words of him is so imperialistic….I ve been watching many advices of him and all his motivational speeches are making me get out from all exceptional and hatred

  22. Bad and good are there. If one kills a good person, they can't be good.
    But Always a pleasant, calming voice to listen to. I do love those comedic bits in between.

  23. My life my rules and it's as simple as that. There will be those who judge my decisions but their judgements don't make me who I am because I make me who I am. Period.

  24. Another way is that when you are about to be triggered by someone or something, just think “ in five years, will it really matter?”.

  25. People in comments section all acting as if they are enlightened like Buddha , but once they finish video, will return to normal life abusing each other for not agreeing to their ideologies(especially Indian commenters)… Dont know why everyone is so obsessed with being "great" on internet!!!!

  26. You tell their is no good or bad it's our own reaction but I have a question people went in depression either they are in village or in city ,I show one video of yours where you are angry over Javed auther becoz he is trying to prove you wrong so it effect means majestic got effected in my life one person not one he is now by his bitching made it more do I cut off if I went their ask reason they told they take legal action means for what for playing with me so cheaply so inhumanly and telling I abused who will not abused if I got humiliated everyday means you are like god you can't imagine how many rascals and it's increasing and increasing …

  27. No words for this man.. an epitome of wisdom and probably the best teacher in today's world.. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

  28. It seemed she ended the interview right after Sadguru called out the crowds volunteers of the organization saying " horrible people do wonderful things" (8:28) and that if you want to find a ideal person you cant. Humbling. How there are no bad people just bad atmospheres.All things vibrate at the frequency of the field they are in.
