There are three types of space that exist. One is the external space (Bhut Akash), in which all the elements are there. The second space is inner space (Chit Akash) where thoughts and emotions come. And the third space (Chid Akash) is the space of energy where there is no thought, no emotion but you feel energy.
All inventions come from these three types of space. We seldom understand and pay attention to these three spaces. You may have noticed in life that in some places you get jittery and angry. In that space, there are people who have been agitated; when you go there, it affects your behaviour.
And when you’re in good company, you feel lighter, uplifted, and at peace.
There is a beautiful story. There was a small hill in a beautiful garden and whenever the gardener would go on the hill, he would invite everybody walking on the streets saying, “Please come and take flowers and fruits.” When the people would come and he got down from that hill, he would say, “how dare you come here, this is trespassing,” and chase them away.
This pattern kept repeating itself. So the wise people thought they would find out in what space he was in. They decided to dig the mound and found a big golden throne that belonged to a king called Vikramaditya. This king had been a pious, generous king of good character and he had ruled the country sitting on that throne, many years ago. Therefore, the vibrations still existed. So whenever the man went on the hill he got into the generous space and when he came down he became nasty. So the space you are in matters a lot.
Similarly, when you are singing in a group, the space generated is harmonious and serene. But that won’t be the case in a disturbing situation. That doesn’t mean you should avoid people because they are not good company. You have to be strong; and instead of running away from negative influences, you must positively impact any environment.
