Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
Do you all drive cars here in Bahrain? Yes! When you drive a car what do you do? You look at the side mirrors, rear view mirror and you look in the windshield as well. How do you balance all three?
You can’t say, 'I will only look at the rear mirror', or, 'I only look in the front', or, 'I only look at the sides'. You have to simultaneously do all the three and you do that?
Exactly same way!
Rear view mirror is like knowing the past. You should have little memory of the past. If you have done some mistake, it should not be repeated. Front mirror is like the vision of life ahead. That is why, the front windshield is very big and the rear view mirror is very small. Then there are side mirrors, these are for you to be aware of what is happening around you all the time.
So how you use all three? Exactly same way!

Q: Gurudev, I find it tough to apply knowledge in such situations, when there is no food and no power.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
You do not have to apply knowledge, just be spontaneous.
Knowledge is already inbuilt in you. You have to accept situations, live in the present moment and serve people. This is the knowledge. Do not try to apply any more knowledge; it is not needed. Be spontaneous and have the faith that something good will come out. Have the faith that your prayers will be answered.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
To have a spiritual teacher means to feel at ease, to feel comfort and to have the confidence to go on a journey to the unknown. A spiritual teacher means: There is somebody to take care of me. If I fall, someone is there to hold me.

Gurudev, you have written a book called 'God loves fun', and yet you say that if we follow fun misery follows us. It is correct?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
Yes it is very correct. If you follow fun misery follows you, but if you follow wisdom then fun will follow you.
