    The biggest joke occurs when to explain divinity you pick up similes from the mundane life, such as treasure beneath the seat of a beggar to point out to the truth of you. Could Sadhguru have been more imaginative.

    • Vaidehi

      I think one has to start from what most of us know about – right now. Right now most of us are on mundane life… start from here – now. You may understand this in a different context… from wherever you are. The smallest to the profound everything is known or at least understood, only when you reach there.

      @Subash, probably u have made this your full time job, commenting negatively on sadhguru posts, the problem is you are expecting something, that others should behave the way you want them to be. come with an open mind or else you can something else useful
      if Sadhguru doesn’t work for you, u can leave and go right.

        How many of you here feel Sadhguru is infallible?

  • Jai

    Why can’t everyone just absorb and do their own thing? Is commenting really required if you are not going to top what Sadhguru says?

      sensing negativity here for the first time. looks like you are also looking in the wrong direction. i used to be like you. always critiquing others, i.e. looking outside at other people. if you listened to sadhguru’s message here and in other writings and videos carefully, then you will know that spirituality is all about looking inwards, at our own flaws, not others, and certainly not telling others what n what not do.
      also, what is it about topping? life is not only about competition, as in 3 idiots. life is about realising our potential to the fullest. its about us not others. its about our own nature.
      also, even thinking of topping sadhguru is a huge sign of disrespect. people write comments here out of gratitude and appreciation, not because they think they are better than sadhguru. are we an enlightened yet? so, there cannot be any questions of topping.
      so, if you can’t top him, you can remain quiet, but please do not instruct others. if you don’t like the comments, then don’t read it. the choice is yours and also how you react to the comments if you do read. there is no compulsive reaction in spirituality.
      i read his blog daily but chose to remain quiet, not out of ego or topping him. i just chose not to. i do write sometimes, and decided to write here in hope that you might come out of arrogance. i request you not to take my writings in a bad way.

    WHEN YOU GET STEEPED IN IDENTITY THEN U WILL ALWAYS TEND TO REACT. LEARN TO OPERATE FROM SELF THEN U WILL RESPOND AND WHEN THIS HAPPENS THEN LIFE ACTUALLY BEGINS TILL THEN U R SIMPLY WANDERING IN THE WOODS AIMLESSLY. CHEERS
