I think that one’s reality is a result of your intention and your attention.
It’s through spiritual practice that I’ve recognized that my own impermanence,
my own irrelevance, in fact I’m just a person shuffling through life,
I am really no different now from when I was a little kid.
All I want really is,I don’t want that feeling in my stomach
that people are being, like, treated badly.
I don’t want the feeling that people are being exploited.
People need to live spiritual lives, all of us.
I’m a person, and it’s good to have access to the infinite consciousness that’s available
to all people but through the five senses is delineated,
keeping us trapped on a material plain.
We think reality is what we can apportion through the limited instruments of the senses,
but reality is of course far beyond that.
Spiritual data is that we don’t have the correct instruments to receive it
and live primarily in the realm of the senses.
Anything that we’re describing through science,
we’re describing through the prism of the five limited senses.
Our eyes can only see between infrared light and ultraviolet light.
There’s light bouncing around everywhere.
Our ears can only hear a tiny decibel range, can’t hear the noise of a dog whistle,
can’t hear any high pitched frequency sounds.
是不是还有其他的如 震动 频率 能量 意识
Isn’t it likely then that there are other vibrations, frequencies, energies, consciousness,
moving through the universe?
Consciousness is an amorphous and expanding entity.
I think that we allow our consciousness to be prohibited by our senses, prescribed by
our senses, living in the realm of these five apertures into our reality.
但现实是无限的 空间是没有边界的 时间是永恒的
But reality is limitless, space is infinite, time eternal.
Through yoga, one can temporarily break the bonds, the chain as to the mundane, the mondial,
“that which is of the earth” and we can temporarily at least, receive a taste of the infinite.
I don’t want to get too cosmic about it but we are just this sort of temporary blob of atoms,
you know.. endowed with consciousness for the merest moments in infinite space.
Meditation and yoga, these are fundamental parts of my life.
I think it’s difficult these days with religion getting such a rough ride, the Pope resigning,
bloody terrorism and nonsense, it’s difficult to find that access to spirituality
but we are by our nature spiritual people.
If we don’t have access to spirituality, we suffer as individuals and society suffers.
We need to recognize at some point that within ourselves there is infinite capacity for connection with all things.
(Host: Well I love the fact that you describe it as you have a “daily access to unseen realms of power.”)
Daily access to unseen realms of power!
Not just me, everyone has that.
对我来说 超自然冥想让我进入了那个状态 不过这既不是因为
For me, what I’ve discovered is that transcendental meditation is useful to me, not because of
a unique set of circumstances, not because of my formerly secret brilliance, no.
But because I am a human being.
And it is applicable to all human beings.
And what’s really good about that is literally everyone in this room is one!
What I say is that we’re basically all right, human beings.
Whenever there’s a disaster, or an accident, people’s impulse it to help one another.
所以我认为 任何激励人们 将人们团结在一起
So I’m thinking, anyone that galvanises people, brings people together and points people toward
引导我们向善 帮助我们克服人性弱点如 恐惧
the better aspects of our nature and help us to overcome our basic things like fear
and desire, I think these people are worthy heroes…rather than the heroes that are nominated
today, heroes that are low vibrational frequency that make us concentrate on dark stuff.
So like.. they want you to be talking about Justin Beiber, they want you to be talking
电臀舞 他们不想让你谈论炼油方法 只想让你谈论电臀舞
about twerking, they don’t want you talking about fracking, they want you talking about twerking.
They want to get you to “shut your fucking mouths and watch this shit you fucking morons”..
and I know because I’ve been part of the charade.
But, you know…
I’m awake now.
Look beyond the superficial.
That’s the problem with current affairs, you forget about what’s important.
You allow the agenda to be decided by superficial information.
What am I saying?
What am I talking about?
Don’t think about what I’m wearing.
These things are redundant, superficial.
(Host: I’m distracted.)
And I don’t think we should be continuing to propagate the idea that famous people are
magical and special because it makes people that their lives ain’t no good.
I don’t think that we should be living in that kind of fearful paradigm.
It’s that I’m a vegetarian.
I believe that we’re all equal.
I ain’t got no right to kill.. say a fly comes in my house, I tolerate that little asshole.
Because I feel like “he’s a fly, he’s just on his journey here through life.”
When I’m meditating or praying, I say the infinite creative force that brings into being
看清现象并用来指导生活 我默念 你能指引我吗？
all phenomena and guides all life, I say “Can you move through me?”
当事情确实发生的时候 你可能有几分接受 有几分推卸
When things actually work, you sort of treat them.. you sort of shirk them off as if,
你知道 你就像金钱 你远离了瑜伽和冥想
you know, as if you are the money and have got avoid yoga and meditation.
They’ve been portrayed quite brilliantly by the mainstream as sort of somehow.. luxury.
但在这它不是一种奢侈 不是娇柔造作 也不是肤浅 而是一种绝对
But it isn’t a luxury, or artificial, or superficial, it’s absolutely integral, it’s absolutely
the most authentic thing.
More real than any of us.
They feel happy, their happy, they don’t need it.
If there’s not a problem, there’s not a problem.
我想如果人们有类似渴望 不满 极度兴奋这样的情绪
But I think if people have some sort of yearning or dissatisfaction or some itchy irritability
then it might be because they’re not looking in the right direction for a solution and
that they should look within and that within them there is a limitless, infinite capacity
for bliss through connection to higher things.
You cannot define yourself in reference to other external coordinates, you must find
yourself internally, your relationship witha higher entity.
Think of yourself as a manifestation of some higher thing, some higher frequency.
This is the visible realization.
And you know that because you can’t see atoms, can you?
And you certainly can’t see the forces that hold atoms together.
在这个微观量子世界 理查德 这就是一切问题的答案
There, in the micro-quantum world, Richard, lie the answers to everything.
We can’t understand it with our logical rational minds.
We feel it intuitively.
Get yourself in alignment with that stuff and you’ll beam like the sun!
The dead human ape has fulfilled it’s potential.
The dead human ape has not evolved for the last 10,000 years.
These are the achievements of the dead human ape.
现在我们必须转变 成为文明进步的人 这样我们才能够进入
Now we must transform, become enlightened, so we can access the next realm of consciousness
necessary for our evolution.
I think we elect to ignore the spiritual and it causes a deficit for ourselves and our
culture and for our planet.
I think we are too easy to identify ourselves as individuals, that idea is fortified daily
through, as we said before, the stimulation of primal desires, that which anchor us to the self.
We ignore that we’re here for such a short while, that we’re all basically the same as
我们和别人一样 我们之间相互连接 我们都有一个共同的责任
one another, we’re all connected to each other and we have a collective responsibility.
God is not something that’s about thinking you better than someone or a reason to have
a war with someone, it’s that within us; beneath our and beyond our identity as human beings
driven by fear and desire, defined by the realm of the senses and the material self
which is transitory; there is a divine self that is connected to all living things, that
is part of an infinite source of creativity.
You could probably describe that using quantum physics or science if you want.
I choose to believe in God because I think what that is the recognition that there
is divine beauty in all of us and if we privatize that over our own selfish material needs then
we will naturally create a culture more in harmony with our planet and we’ll have a chance.
I think this is one of the great sadnesses of modern life because of our disenfranchisement,
our disillusionment with religion that we don’t have access to these ideas.
Yoga and meditation for me, is a way, in the secular world of accessing very very beautiful
principles and perhaps make us happier in a time where people feel disillusioned with
这个经济幻灭 为生态忧虑 对政客担心
the economy, concerned about the ecology, worried with politicians, don’t trust what
they’re being told on television.
We’ve got to let go of temporary, transient ideas like individualism.
一神论的教义 死亡 沙漠 向我们传递了这样的信息
The nature of monotheistic faiths, these dead, desert religions, is to encode us with the
idea that individualism is more important that Paganism,
ideologies that integrally relate us to the earth.
We know that we are integrally, indefatigably related to our environment and we live in
the service of our environment because the self is a temporal illusion.
I suppose the ultimate truth is oneness, that this is a temporary illusion that we temporarily
occupy these flesh puppets, that we believe so much in our identity,
we believe in our individualism, and I talk as a sort of, very egotistical man (look at my hair, look at
（看看我的头发 看看这些手镯 看看这些滑稽的靴子）
these bracelets, these ridiculous boots) I’m a person who believes in the nature of my
own individualism and my own identity.
But on a deeper level I recognize that all these things are transient.
什么是重要的起决定性作用的 是我们共有的:爱 团结 归属感
And what’s important, what’s defining are things that we all share: love, unity, togetherness.
As long as we have cultural narratives that eschew these ideas, that suppress these ideas,
偏向人类消极的特性：贪婪 自私 欲望 只要这些概念被推广
in favor of negative human traits: greed,selfishness, lust; as long as these ideas
are promoted we’ll exist in opposition toone another and we’ll be exploitable by corporations
that prey upon these negative aspects of humanity.
善恶之间的分界线不在于文化 宗教或信条 而存在于每一个人的心中
The line between good and evil runs not between cultures, religions or creeds, but through every human heart.
Now I recognize in myself the capacity for selfishness, for lustfulness, for egotism,
and because I recognize the qualities in myself I would prefer a culture that didn’t celebrate,
exsassorbate, stimulate the most negative aspects of our species, inculcate them, reward
them financially, till we get into a kind of a cultural hysteria where we’re destroying the planet.
Reality is, there is one planet.
There is a certain amount of people on the planet.
There are a certain amount of resources on the planet.
None of these things are gonna last forever.
So we need systems in place that acknowledge the reality.
Not systems that benefit the elite.
Systems that acknowledge the reality.
People need to have access to the resources.
You can’t lie to people, so that people in power can continue to augment their own power
and satisfaction while normal people are exploited.
We need systems that get the resources to the people while respecting the planet.
Any system that detrimental to the planet or detrimental to the people, cause it helps
one or two bods.. fuck it off!
You’re allowed to do that you know!
We are creatures on a planet.
We are mammals.
Look at the faces of the people that we’re being asked to vote for as leaders.
Look at them!
Look at them, feel it in your hearts!
That ain’t whose meant to be leading us.
Happiness cannot forever be sustained like some glistening bauble.
It’s a transitory thing, like a butterfly alighting on Snow White’s finger (in that bit of Snow White.)
所以 像这样 我开心是因为我待人友善
So, like, I’m happy mostly when I’m being nice to other people.
Then I’m happy.
You know, when they analyze the semantics consistently through mythology and theology,
中类似“爱” “上帝”这类单词的时候 他们发现共同的主题 John 就是这个连接点
of words like “love”, “God”, they find that the common theme, John, is union.
That we just want to be connected to something higher.
那可能是另外一个人 那可能是上帝 可能是我们与自然的联系
That might be another person, that could be God, that could be a relationship with nature,
could even be a relationship with Westham United.
I think the important thing is to have the central tenet of your being: love, compassion
Everyone knows that.
You know, like the realization that this is only a temporary thing.
That the only thing that really matters to any of us is love.
That underscoring everything is love.
That if its a biological, anatomical human condition the idea of acquisition and survival
of the species, that that two percent that distinguishes us from the great ape, somewhere
within that is the mind spark that philosophers have always espoused upon and written about
that somewhere within that.. that’s the truth that we’re trying to head towards.
What it felt to me was like, the disillusion of my idea of myself.
Like, I felt like separateness evaporated.
I felt this tremendous sense of oneness.
I find that I’m quite an erratic thinker, quite an adrenalized person.
But through meditation, I felt this sort of beautiful serenity and selfless connection.
You know, my sort of tendency toward selfishness I felt like kind of exposed, as a superficial
and pointless perspective to have.
I felt a very relaxed sense of oneness.
I felt love.
