In United States of America,
there is a segment of people who believe that next time when Jesus comes,
he will come in United States. Generally, it’s believed he will
come in Mount Olive in Jerusalem, but now US people are saying, “Why will you go to Israel?
That’s not a good place to go, he will come in United States.” So they asked me a question like this in a large gathering, “Sadhguru, what do you think? Jesus will come in United States or in Jerusalem?” I said, “See, last time he came in Jerusalem
and he said, ‘Come follow me,’ only twelve people. Hmm? Today you’re celebrating him as a great being
but only twelve people followed him. In that, one of them freaked on him. All right? But if he comes to United States today,
if he says, ‘Come follow me,’ you have a bank loan, student loan, car loan, house loan, holiday home loan, you’re mortgaged for forty-five years. If Jesus says, ‘Come follow me’, nobody will be there
because everybody has to go to the bank.” So you have entangled yourself in such a way, even if the most significant things happen
you can’t change the direction of your life. Hello? If the greatest things came your way,
you cannot change the direction of your life. This is a slave’s life, isn’t it? What is slavery?
He cannot choose, that is slavery isn’t it? Now you’re making that kind of
arrangements in your life. You cannot choose,
you’re stuck in your own arrangements. A spider weaves a web for other things to be caught. But if you’re that kind of a spider,
you build a web in which you’re caught, you’re a stupid spider, isn’t it (Few Laugh)? And most human beings are in that condition
(Applause) (Laughs). if something significant happens,
you were going this way, if something really significant happened this way,
you can go this way. Your arrangements will not trap you. This is an intelligent life. If you’re smart enough, you will make arrangements that support you, not arrangement that entangle you, isn’t it?
