pain is a good thing physically because that is your preservation self-preservation mechanism but suffering is something that you do in your mind so pain that happens in your body you take it in your mind and multiply it a thousand times or a million times depending on how capable you are and suffer it a million times over right now most human beings are like this what happened ten years ago they can still suffer what may happen day after tomorrow they already suffer they are not suffering life they think they are suffering like they are not suffering life they are suffering the two most fantastic faculties that human beings alone have a vivid sense of memory and a fantastic sense of imagination [Music] thanks for tuning in to this episode of impact theory sponsored by our friends at

mystical and highly practical the uncompromising said guru welcome I am beyond excited to have you on the show going and looking at your what you're trying to accomplish in the world is very much in line with what we're trying to do in terms of human potential which i think is super exciting but we definitely we go about it in very different ways and reading your book I was really impacted and so getting to dive deeper into this I think is gonna be a lot of fun and I think the first place to start walk me through what you mean by potential like what what do you think is human potential so yeah every Christian from a worm insect bird plant tree everybody all of them are trying to be full-fledged lives if one sees what's happening beneath earth in terms of the root systems it is an enormous effort for a plant or a tree to become a full-fledged tree well an apple tree is not trying to be an oak tree but an apple tree wants to be a full-fledged apple tree that effort is on in every life so is it in human beings but the problem with Humanity is just this that for every other creature nature has drawn two lines within these two lines they live and die so their idea of full-fledge is hitting the ceiling of their life but if a human being hits a ceiling he gets frustrated and miserable because nature this process of evolution has delivered to us to a place where there is only the bottom line there is no top line though some human beings are trying to breach the bottom line and go below that what else is going on so essentially what human life is is when life was in the other forms of life that you see on the planet nature determined a certain compulsive instinctive ways of functioning once you become human these lines have been removed you can act consciously that means what you call as human potential is not of any kind of measurable limit it can go as far as you desire or us as far as you have the courage to walk so when we say human potential unleashing human potential it is not about reaching the peak it is a trajectory because what our life is is a combination of a certain amount of time and energy time is rolling away for all of us at the same pace if you sit it rolls away if you sleep it rolls away if you do something it goes away if you don't do anything it goes away you're happier miserable it goes away time is running out for all of us so it's only the energy that you can do different things with if you bring your energies to a certain level of intensity and possibility what somebody does in 10 years you may do it in one year this means if you live here 400 years it feels like in people's in impact that you're created it feels like you lived here for a thousand years simply because you have managed your life energies in a certain way so for me a human being being impactful means how conscious have you become this is very important because if you're in compulsive cycles then your energy gets wasted in so many things if you absorb people in a day let's say let's take 24 hours in that anyway most people buy prescription in America they sleep for eight hours so eight hours means one-third of life is gone in the remaining two-thirds they have to eat they have to you know shower bathroom this that all this another two three hours gone so literally 50% of life is gone daily basis just for basic maintenance of this life 50% of the time is gone and maintenance remaining 50% what they have if you look at every single move that they may make with their body their thought process their emotions you will see a whole lot of it is happening in compulsive cycles or in other words if you a little sensitive to life you will realize you are the biggest issue in your life so this is one thing that I'm trying to do with people that you are never the issue in your life I am NOT the issue my thought my emotion my body is never the issue my thought my emotion my energy and my body are my instruments it's a function they are not impediments in my life but I would say for 90% of the human beings their own body then the compulsions of the body the compulsions of their thought the compulsions of their emotions are ruling them most of the time so when you yourself for a problem well you're on self-help so how do you begin to break out of that like if we're all stuck in these compulsive patterns how do you gain the consciousness that you're talking about and begin to I don't know if the words go beyond elevate like how do you stop being in that endless cycle everybody wants a solution but nobody wants to delve into the problem and see what is the nature of the problem that we have the nature of the problem is like this why are we compulsive what is it that's compulsive about us compulsion means we are going to the same place again and again that means we're going in circles the nature of physical existence in the universe is such whether you take an atom an individual atom or the cosmic space everything that's physical is always in cyclical moment the atoms are doing their circles the solar system is doing his stuff the galaxies are doing their stuff our own bodies are going through cycles in fact we are born because of the cycles in our mother's bodies that's why we are born so entire physical nature is born out of cyclical moment that means compulsiveness so do not misunderstand compulsiveness as something bad it's the basis of your existence it is a good platform but you're supposed to stand on the platform and act right now you have become the platform so somebody else will dance on you interesting that's so my thing and part of what drives me is getting getting efficient at achieving your goal which I'm sure is less their goal for you so for me I I am interested in actually executing on my potential so transferring my ability to do something into the actual thing so the easy example I give people is what does what does impact mean for you leaving a footprint not quite so I have a very specific kind of impact that I'm trying to have which is to help people actuate their potential so I think that a lot of people they are capable of extraordinary things and I think that to your point about joy I think one of the things that's absolutely foundational to joy is growth and so getting people on a path where they believe it that way that's foundational to joy joy is foundational to growth isn't it probably yes but I don't have an insight as to what came first which is exactly why you're here no no there is substantial medical and scientific evidence to show that only when you're in a pleasant state of experience your body and your brain works at its best there's no argument about them there's enough evidence to show that so whatever impact or success or reaching goals or growth or whatever you say on one level in the physical world it's about how well you harness your physiological and your psychological process isn't it whether your body and mind works against you or works for you this is a big difference so there is enough evidence to show only when you're in pleasant levels of experience this happens best so obviously joy is first then growth if you're joyful constantly and you have no fear of suffering because you understand all human experience comes from within you and so you have managed to create the kind of experience that you want now growth is possible and riddled if you have the fear of falling down and suffering you will not go very high isn't it so how do you work through that how do you help people on that path many ways to look at it one of the simplest ways to see it is all human experience has a chemical basis to it right now let us say your joyful if you look at your chemistry it'll be in a certain way let's say your miserable if you check your chemistry it'll be a completely different way now we have a technology that with which you create a chemistry of blissfulness so my chemistry is blissful doesn't matter what's happening the drama around me is happening in so many different ways but this is a privilege that I have kept for myself me being joyful or miserable me being peaceful or disturbed these privileges have not given it to anybody else I kept them to myself I think every human being should do that that the privileges of the nature of your experience must be in your hand because when you try to act in the world there are many many forces all of them will not always cooperate sometimes they cooperate many times they will not cooperate many times they'll turn against you this is the nature of the world that's how it should be world will never happen hundred percent your way and I'm glad it is so because if it all happened your way where do I go I'm glad it's not happening your way little bit my way little bit your way a little bit somebody else's way that's how the world should be it's very interesting is there a way to avoid falling into those traps like I know that you've taken some very different approaches at least from American set of eyes to raising your daughter and not wanting her not wanting to put a lot of teachings on her is that to avoid dogma is it to avoid closing doors because you think you know something like how do we if we were gonna have kids and raise them in a way that stopped them from falling into some of these traps what would we do how many parents were there and encourage their children not to be identified with parents not to be identified with a religion that they follow not to be identified with their racial and national and other prejudices that they hope the all thing the things are sacred isn't it yes these are the things which destroy human potential whether you want to turn a human being see I see this term when it really hurts me when people say it's very common only in America I hear this I was raised as whatever Catholic or Baptist or a Christian or Muslim or whatever else I was raised see you must raise only cattle and sheep you don't raise human beings you have to cultivate a human being you have to give space and give support of love and support so that a human being grows because every human being is capable of a unique possibility raising means what a flock is what you race you don't raise an individual isn't it that's very interesting so for this we need to come to a certain level of maturity within ourselves the most fundamental thing is our children need not look like us do not think like us need not act like us need not be as in any way a child is not a legacy it's a life and it is an individual life it has to be what it has to be well if I do not influence right now the fear is if I do not influence somebody on the street will influence the child on the social media they will influence the child so to to cultivate a child so that they know that the intrinsic intelligence and being human is more important than being influenced by this or that it doesn't matter what it is whether it's parentage or it's a priest or it's a guru or it's a pundit it doesn't matter who influence is not important what is important is the intrinsic intelligence finding its full potential and do you think is we grow up in a modern context that we can avoid adopting those beliefs you talked one time I thought this is so interesting about how every time you get a belief it's like a conclusion and every conclusion is a death unto itself and it's like shutting a door on something yes other ways see you just see you look at your own picture when you were 5 years of age it's like this slowly it's becoming like this what is it you're dying in installments the more conclusions you make the less alive you become this all that's happened to people they call this knowledge this is not knowledge this is just conclusions that you're drawing about everything see with all this scientific exploration the fact is that even today we do not know one single atom in its entirety we know how to use them we know how to use everything on this planet but we don't know what damn thing about anything over 90% or 99% of an atom is empty we don't know what that emptiness contains over 99% of the cosmos is empty we don't know what that is so this is like I give you a million piece jigsaw but you found in your hands you have only three of them with these three you make a picture and you're euphoric that you made a picture well I'm sorry there are million pieces to this has anybody gather all the pieces now then don't make a picture you've talked about the only way to really make change is to turn inward as we look inward turn inward go inward what are we are we working on awareness consciousness like what is the see right now what are the instruments of your experience you know you're here only because you can see hear smell taste and touch this is the only way you know that you're here right now suppose you doze off don't okay suppose you doze off you don't know that you're here isn't it yes even though you're here your heart is beating everything is functioning the world is on we are all here but you won't know that you're here nor will you know that I'm here or anybody else is here isn't it yes all that's happened is life is on full on even within you only thing is these five sensory organs have shut down so your entire experience of life right now is happening because you can see hear smell taste and touch just look at the nature of the sensory organs in the very nature their outward bound isn't it can you roll your eyeballs inward and scan yourself now there is a shall I give you a bad example sir your our nose is located now right above our mouth suppose you don't brush your teeth for three days though this nose is right here it won't tell you you have not brushed your teeth the whole room will know you have not brushed your teeth but you will not know this is the human predicament it's very easy to see what's wrong with this guy what's wrong with her what's wrong with her it's very it takes a lot of observation to see what's wrong with this that level of keenness of observation is missing in most people they need to cultivate that and so it's tempting to when reading your book and hearing your story it's tempting to say oh this is how he cultivated that whether it's sitting in the tree that was swaying and then doing swaying meditation is that actually how you cultivated it or is there something else because somebody watching right now they they want to be able to begin to access this and if it's a simple letting go of belief and Dogma or if it's awareness of this belief and Dogma is not simple mmm it's not simple people are who they are only because of what they believe and what they have a hell like that because without this they don't know where they belong to live here without belonging to anything but still involved with everything takes a lot most people belong but they're not involved it is like belonging is like an insurance policy it's simply their involvement takes you to be constantly involved with people around you it takes you to be conscious and on but I belong to you I don't have to do anything I have professed already I belong to you I'm married to you I belong to you legally it is settled so I don't have to be conscious of you nor do I have to be involved with you still I belong to you so belonging means belonging believing or identifying simply means you have found a way to sleep through your life it's called sleep when we say you know people usually use this term with animals if you said we put our cat to sleep what does it mean to you for real that they killed their hair yes so I'm talking about sleep in that context I believe this I belong to this I'm identified with this means it's sleep that means you're partially dead you made conclusions which takes away the life that bubbles within you this is why people are walking around like they're dying in installments yeah so the notion of not knowing the notion of responsibility are two things that are really powerful and can I just connect the two agent yeah not knowing is not a notion it's a fact okay it's not a notion you really do not know damn thing about this existence isn't it yes we don't even know a blade of grass in its entirety we do not know a single item in its entirety we do not know a single cell in this body in its complete context we do not we know some things we can manipulate a few things but we don't know much about it so it's like this let's say we turn off all the lights if the lights are on you can whistle and just walk around wherever you want in this building we'll turn off all the lights and make it pitch dark where you can't even see your own hand like that now every step that you take will you take it in but most alertness will you be fully awake or asleep for your wake only awake why because you don't know where the next step just to live like this if you simply live like this naturally you are on the highway to enlightenment everybody assume and believe because it's comfortable to simply believe something the very word belief means this that I have concrete concrete iced assumptions of which I know nothing about isn't it mm-hmm isn't it so yeah either you know or you do not know where does the belief come from when you pretend what you do not know as I know that's belief but you can't believe something all by yourself so you need a hundred people around you that's why always believers are in groups seekers are alone talk to me about a seeker what what is the seeker is that something useful to cultivate you don't have to cultivate this this is intrinsic to human intelligence if you do not yourself with all kinds of things that you do not know as you know its intrinsic to human intelligence to seek isn't it yes you don't have to teach seeking you have to teach belief systems you don't have to teach seeking if you don't teach anything everybody is a seeker it is the nature of human intelligence it naturally seeks but people want to seek with the comfort of belief they want to be in the belief system and then seek this is like tying your boat to the pier and then rowing hard it's good it's not bad because it gives you good exercise it's like being on the treadmill most people are on the treadmill because they are not walking or running to go somewhere they just trying to turn their muscles it's perfectly fine so if that's all you wish to do it's fine but if you want to go somewhere you can't tie your boat and then row isn't it if you just let it go even if you don't row it will go what do you tell people about responsibility it's just your ability to respond you have to make up your mind do you want to retain your ability to respond to every situation that may arise or may not arise in your life or do you want to surrender your ability to respond this is something everybody should make up their mind on do you have practices to keep yourself so open and so joyful life that's what else life is an openness depth is closing isn't it that is a closure life is a possibility if you're just alive everything is open tell me can you be alive suppose you don't like me so you don't want to inhale what I exhale stop breathing and exist for some time let me see possible yes without breathing for a little while how is little how much is little for you to hold my breath yeah I don't know 30 second second ten minutes definite eminence so I'm saying if you don't like me your dislike will not go away in 30 seconds isn't it yeah for sure suppose I hate you I don't want to breathe inhale what you exhale hmm I will die within myself isn't it yes this all people are doing to themselves I like this guy I don't like that guy this is somebody I allow that somebody I hate this is belongs to me this doesn't belong to me they just killing themselves step by step they are planning to die in inch if you want to live here you are you must make up your mind whether you want to live or you want to die you want to know the certainty of death in life this is called belief this is called belonging this is called identification because you are trying to find the certainty of death in the seamless process of life it's very interesting when you I mean you spend a lot of time speaking what do you hope people take away is there one core thing that you really want people to be touched by fundamentally if people understand that the source of human experience is within you joy are misery agony or ecstasy pleasure or pain everything comes from within you if you understand this much if I understand suppose right now I think I'm miserable because of you hmm there's no solution for my life isn't it because all you have to do is walk in front of my home I will become miserable so simple it is you don't have to kill me you just have to walk around in front of me I will die within myself every day if I understand the source of my joy and misery within me then you know what's the obvious choice joy obvious choice isn't it so this one fundamental thing has to get across to all the human beings on this planet your experience is entirely determined by you this is what the word karma means unfortunately it's become something else here karma means action that means when we say your life is your karma we are saying your life is entirely your making 100% what happens in the world there are many many forces involved what happens within me it's 100 percent me 100 percent isn't it yes if you don't take charge of this then you're an accidental life when you're an accidental life anxiety is very natural naturalistic hmm suppose you are driving accidentally that is you don't know what's happening and you simply somehow going anxiety is natural or no yes any accidental moment creates anxiety so this is why consciousness means this that you have taken charge of the instruments of life which on most fundamental level is our physiological and psychological space you have taken charge of this now your health your happiness your joy your ecstasy your misery everything is in your hands you exercise them as you want going back to what you said about focus in your book you talk about something I thought was so interesting to set the faucet to a certain drip rate and do nothing but focus on the dripping of the faucet for like seven minutes or something what idea is to pay attention to something which has no relevance to you say people have have divided the universe this is important this is not important this person is important for me this person is not important to me this is important for me that's not important for me you divided the universe you will never know anything this way indiscriminate focus indiscriminate attention I'm not attending to you because you are somebody with a cobra in your heart all right it doesn't matter who I speak to who I am with and the same way indiscriminate only when your attention and involvement is indiscriminate does the universe open up to you you have discriminated naturally you close you know people come to me and say Sadhguru I want to walk the spiritual path I say okay be here for three days let's see what we can say no such group day after tomorrow my uncle's daughter's birthday I have to go oh you want to get enlightened and day after tomorrow uncle's daughter's birthday also all right we got one and a half days you do one thing you do this this and this as a circle but I don't like this all right I give them a small piece of paper and say okay write down things that you like we'll do only don't do that you won't believe it in this entire universe most people like only three or four things when you're so constipated in your head that you like only three or four people are three or four things in your life how do you want to open up to the existence because life is happening because of its openness this is a fundamental difference between death and life is people are thinking is just breath all right on one level that is also openness whether you allow this to happen or you don't allow it to happen whether you did it consciously or unconsciously but it's happening isn't it openness is on every subatomic particle is in communication with everything that's why this is going on breath is happening so much is happening in connection with everything it is only in openness you're alive as you close doors you are dying in installments dying in installments is torture see life is fantastic if you're alive and fully alive if you're dead it's good at least the neighbors may think so this may sound very not so compassionate but I'm saying everybody dies you and me will die all right if you dead it's the game is over but if you're half dead oh this is endless torture to yourself when you are being tortured of course you'll share it with everybody else talk to me about your motorcycle accident and having to have your calf served back together which is without anesthesia how's that possible not that young anymore today I would but the notion of the difference between pain and suffering I thought was very useful the pain is physiological its death it was no pain most people would not even know how to protect themselves see just because there's no pain in the sea what all you've done to it hmm see there's no pain in this so that's why you took it off if there's no pain in your nose maybe you would have taken it off because they're many advantages you will take in about 22% extra oxygen if you just remove this one thing contraption wherever there is no pain people are messing with it like crazy isn't it they call this hairstyle they call it so many things suppose there was no pain in the entire body in Los Angeles people would pull out their stomach bag and you think they wouldn't do it not the father one only pain is helping them to preserve themselves isn't it the pain is good there's no physiological pain most people would not know I here in the United States there's one group they call themselves something I forget that word they're actually cutting their fingers off their hands off on the video well they're posting it online there's a group like that whoa can you imagine now in spite of so much pain if there is no pain almost everybody would have cut themselves off in so in the name of fashion they would have cut themselves into ribbons so pain is a good thing physically because that is your preservation self preservation mechanism but suffering is something that you do in your mind so pain that happens in your body you take it in your mind and multiply it a thousand times or a million times depending on how capable you are or how stupid you are and suffer it a million times over right now most human beings are like this what happened ten years ago they can still suffer what may happen day after tomorrow they already suffer they are not suffering life they think they are suffering life they are not suffering life they are suffering the two most fantastic faculties that human beings alone have a vivid sense of memory and a fantastic sense of imagination why do you think that depression and anxiety suicide are so rampant right now see one thing is the survival process has become easier than ever before believe me in the morning if you need a bucket full of water if you had to walk a mile to the river to get one bucket of water and your family needed 25 buckets of water you would have no time to mess yourself now you have a lot of time to mess yourself because our survival is better organized than ever before another thing is most human beings do not know how to manage their biochemistry without physical activity I have seen a whole lot of people particularly teenage boys and girls between the ages of 12 and 16 who come to me with some severe violent problems within themselves if you leave them like that they may kill themselves or kill somebody else that in that kind of state many of them have even killed their parents you know it just happened all over the world and in 2017 when I came to know that in India which is not so much suicidal in that sense because there's a huge family support and stuff like that in spite of that in 2017 eighteen thousand six hundred children below 18 years of age committed suicide out of which 7,200 are below 15 years of age so 12 13 14 year-olds who must be bubbling with life or wanting to take their own lives why obviously we're doing something fundamentally wrong with the society isn't it yes our goals and our stupid ideas of what is success is driving them nuts because we are trying to use our children like racehorses that's interesting and when you say that is something to that represent us that we've turned into something amazing or in what way are they like racehorses when you understand as a race if you're in a race what subjective you must reach the finish line quick isn't it yes what is the finish line of your life death there you have it this may not be a conscious process but life with the new is understanding it like that when you see you must understand this whether you are conscious it of a conscious of it or not any human being right now if you make yourself miserable you must understand you are sending a message to every cell in the body that I don't want to live you might not have articulated it in your head yet but when you become miserable you notice suddenly your body seems heavy and it's like doesn't want to get up from this chair have you seen this yes when you're happy you're willing to bounce it everything and do everything bend backwards if necessary why this is happening is the message has gone to every cell in the body this guy wants to die they're all thinking okay what can we do to help him but by then of course you'll recover so you want to die you want to live you want to die you want to live the body is getting confused because you must understand this is a very intelligent body it's taking instructions from you every cell in the body has an enormous sense of memory and intelligence if you keep sending wrong messages if they act you did because you're sending contradictory messages you are not dead you're half dead you can give it any number of exotic names essentially you have turned your intelligence against yourself this is supposed to work for you but now you've turned it against yourself it's working against you yeah I know I'm putting words in your mouth which is very dangerous but the whole notion of being happy I feel like you really address how to live fully in your book inner engineering which I was just really really impacted by if you had to define what inner engineering is exactly how would you say it say do you agree with me that our lives today as a generation of people has become far more comfortable and far more convenient simply because of our understanding of science and our exploitation of that knowledge as technology yes hmm we are the most comfortable generation ever in the history of humanity no question about it isn't it yes we are super empowered because of the science and technology as it is a science and technology for our external well-being there is a whole science and technology for inner well-being unfortunately most cultures have ignored this and thinking that if we make all the external arrangements well everything will be okay the United States of America is a huge statement that this is not how it works the most affluent country on the planet 70% of the population are supposed to be on prescription medication yeah Wow what's the best way for people to interact with you they don't have to interact with me because learn from me maybe because we can talk if inspiration is what you need encouragement was what you need I'm willing to talk but talks will not bring solutions they will bring some clarity solution will come only when you take a proper inward step that's what inner engineering process is we are doing everything possible to deliver it in as simple and as practical measures as it can be done there was a time it was thought in such a complex way today we have simplified it broken into five different pieces offering it as five layers of program so that people can experience it in small doses and slowly step by step they can go I am seeing as you come into more and more affluent societies their steps are far more babe steps than other people so we've broken it into many steps so that small steps you can take one by one and your website is the best place for that yes okay it's a good place to go perfect yessir dot said guru dot org that's what it's called okay and we'll link to that as well our organization is 100% volunteer organization so we're not professional in our approach and I'm very proud of that because I am NOT interested in how much somebody is doing I am very interested in how they're doing it because that's what changes the quality of who we are because the content of our life will not change our life it is the context of our life which changes our life that's interesting very interesting because you content you have changed and you see people are not happy [Music] content of our life is phenomenally enhanced compared to how our grandparents lived here isn't it even in this country yes definitely how can people change their context that's what engineering is about if your contact shifts from your psychological and physiological process to the life process that you are everything has changed because we must understand this as we sit here this is my body that's your body this is my mind that's your mind but there's no such thing as this is my life and that's your life if this is a living cosmos everybody is free to capture as much as they want if you capture substantial amount of life your very presence will become a significant life otherwise you will become a mediocre life this is the important thing it's not the knowledge you gather in your head it's not the muscle that you gather in your body it's the life how much of a life for you this will make you significant in your very presence if world gives us an opportunity we will do something impactful otherwise we're just a significant presence a huge oak tree standing outside it is not trying to create an impact it is just impactful if you go under its shade you feel it otherwise also it's impactful most people notice it only when it's gone what is the impact that you want to have on the world when I was twenty-five years of age when suddenly things burst forth within me and I realized if I sit here without messing myself naturally I'm bursting with ecstasy and every cell in my body drips ecstasy I thought initially I'm going off my rocker then again and again when I saw over a period of six to eight weeks when I saw if I just close my eyes I just burst into ecstatic states so I clearly realized if I don't mess with my physiological and psychological process ecstasy is the only way to be nothing to be done you don't have to do anything when I realized this I sat down and actually planned on that day the world's population was 5.6 billion people I made a plan in two and a half years time that I will make the world ecstatic no fool like a young fool you know now it's been 37 years not two and a half years well people say we have touched over 500 million people or so don't say whoa you don't walk my failures yeah I guess this was my idea of humanity seven point six billion people 500 million people time going away I'm condemned to die a failure but I'm a blissful failure all right so what we need is just this do you want to live in a beautiful world means what beautiful does not mean just a beautiful view of the ocean or something else beautiful means human life here is pleasant within every human being the question is not about what I wear what I Drive where I live but how I am within myself see what we can do in the world is a question of times in which time of history we exist accordingly we do things if we were here hundred years ago we wouldn't be recording all this stuff all right we would be doing something different but human experience is constant whichever generation you are you can either be blissed-out or misery always forever it has been so and it will be so so what we can do in the world is subject to many realities of the times but how we can be within ourselves is always a possibility so what is always a possibility must be manifested whether you will run faster than mr. bolt or not whether you will climb Mount Everest or not this is not the point those things are subject to individual tastes and individual likes and dislikes but will your experience of life on this planet be pleasant or not at least this one thing we must determine that every human beings experience of life on this planet is pleasant that much we must do and it's doable that is incredible sokurah thank you so much for being on the show that was absolutely incredible thank
