The Only Real Solution to Phone Addiction – Sadhguru


Speaker: Are we human being becoming
stupid, are we slave? Isn’t this modern life… Sadhguru: Life has become so
much better because of a phone. The solution is only consciousness,
there is no other way. Speaker: In era of democratization of technology,
innovation, smartphone, internet, social media, we are becoming more and more dependent
on all of those tools, I am one of them. They are as important today as
food, as water, as breathe, as air… I’m sorry for the question – Are we human being becoming stupid, are we slave? Isn’t this the modern life, modern life slavery for you? Sadhguru: No, I don’t see it that way. Even if you are
a cave man, you would carry a stick in your hand. Speaker: True. Sadhguru: You would never keep the stick down
because it was necessary, maybe there was a snake, maybe there was an animal, maybe
there was something else, always a stick. Today you’re carrying a cell phone,
I don’t see any difference. That stick was useful at that time,
this phone is useful now. Now this is technology which has
enabled us to so many things. I remember twenty-five years ago or thirty years ago,
when I was building the foundation you know, I had to go into those booth with a black phone
and make hundred, two-hundred calls at a time. Today if I just think about it my phone calls, all right? If I say a word, it will call who I want and it’s done. So life has become so much better because of a phone. But now people are in a state of compulsiveness, anything you give they’re so
compulsive, they make it into suffering. Compulsive eating, compulsive
drinking, compulsive everything. So the problem is not phone, problem is not
something else; compulsiveness is the problem. The solution is only consciousness,
there is no other way (Laughs). Speaker: And controlling our self. Sadhguru: No, not controlling, becoming conscious. If you become conscious,
you are liberated, not controlled.
