Ranveer: Guruji I heard you were in Russia for the football World Cup? What is your take on sports? Don't you think it is about one up man ship? Isn't it a quest to beat others?
Sadhguru: Yes, I was in Russia. I like football. Many asked me which team do you support and whom would you root for. I was there to root for football, it is an amazing game. Russia organised the entire tournament in an amazing way.
Winning is a desire and game is a process. The focus should always be on the process. If the process is right then the outcome would also be right. Desire should never become more important than process. I want to be better than you is a wrong approach. Explore full potential of who you are and do what you can in the best best possible way. If your focus is always on doing things better than others then you cannot enjoy success.
Ranveer: In Bollywood there is a lot of comparision. But I am trying my best to focus on doing what I do in the best possible manner. Guruji What is success?
Sadhguru: Success should be useful. Everything depends on how you define success. What good is it if it is not useful to life. You got to understand that life is a phenomenon and it is much bigger than intellect. Intellect is part of life and not the other way round. Intelligence has many diamensions, and we got to utilise it in order to make it useful.
Ranveer: The theme of the event is Sensing the future. What is your vision of the future, what is in in store in the future?
Sadhguru: Knowing the future will make life dull (Jokingly). If you know the future then you will stop working today. If you know exactly what will happen in future then you will become frustrated. Live in today, and the future will take care of itself. One is certain about everyone's future. At the end there will be a funeral.
People go to astrologers and ask when will they get married. They ask how will the marriage be. Do you really want a third person to tell you how you will be with your life.
Ranveer: Phones have changed the way we live, what is your take on it? What do you have to say about social media?
Sadhguru: Every machine is an extension of our capabilities. Every invention is an extension of our senses. Technology is a great enabler but what it has brought with it is compulsiveness. Gadgets have become new drugs now. Use technology when needed and stay away from compulsiveness.
