Dear Gurudev, what is the force that keeps the material things in their shapes? I go to sleep at night and when I wake up in the morning, all the furniture is still there. What is holding the outside world together? The explanation I found in Physics was not satisfactory.
Click on the button to share Sri Sri's divine knowledge topics. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
That is called intelligence. There is some intelligence that is making you ask this question; that is holding your brain together. That which is keeping the brain together is the same intelligence which is keeping the furniture together also! Brain is also a furniture for consciousness to sit on. Got it? If you have one, you have got it! I am sure you have one, otherwise you couldn’t have asked this brilliant question.
Usually ordinary people take things for granted. It needs that extraordinary brain to get intrigued by the realities of life. Question these things in the universe and don't just be satisfied with what comes in the so called science books because they keep changing. New theories come up every day. It is really the intelligent ones who want to see beyond science also; who are not satisfied with scientific research also. They want to prove more and more. So give a big pat on your head and to the thing that sits inside it. And give a big pat to your back and to the thing that sits on your back. And it is intact I tell you!
