How is our body similar to the cosmos? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Sabyasachi | #5

Synopsis: I remember when I came to the ashram, Sadhguru, many years ago for the first time, it struck me how beautiful the place was. I didn’t expect it because I thought ashrams had to follow a very dreary kind of aesthetic. So it took me by surprise. And it’s only later in conversations with you that I’ve understood that you talk about the individual. The atomic and the...

... cosmic, sharing the same fundamental design structure. And you say, you even talked of the capacity of the body to download the cosmos. Is this because we share the same structure? Can you say more about this because it’s an exciting image and an exciting idea. For us, still an idea. For you, an experiential reality.

Looking at life from a different prism | Sadhguru in Conversation with Deepak Chopra | #1

Synopsis: They say, look you have to look at the world through a different prism. You have to change your whole prism through which you view your own life, is a broad theme.

... you experience life is who you are. And then that creates a ripple effect because it makes you good people and then you can create a good planet. So that’s theme number two. And then theme number three is, to do that, you have to do a whole lot of things. This is not just something that happens easily. You have to go through a lot of rigorous discipline and you need science and technology to get there essentially. And that science and technology comes from yoga, different forms of yoga, different forms of inner engineering and self-inquiry, self-knowledge, self-discipline. So there’s many, many things. So these are the broad themes. Has your own thinking changed? You both have been talking about variations of this topic for a very long time. Could you just tell us, has that changed a lot?

Why do people under anaesthesia have this sense that no time has passed? | Sadhguru at Harvard Medical School | #2

Synopsis: So, I did a little reading about you. And he’s not as uneducated as he would have you believe. He’s actually quite educated. And I was curious because, I think it was back in 1982, you had your first enlightenment experience I think. And, there’s a story here. So you mentioned how it seemed like only 10 or 15 minutes had gone by. But what had happened is you had...

... been out in this state for maybe 4 hours or so, when you came and looked at your watch. This is what people under anaesthesia report all the time. In other words, they have this sense that no time has passed. But they report a very similar phenomena. It seems like they wake up sometimes from anaesthesia and they’ll go, have you started yet? You’re done? They seem quite surprised. So whatever our timekeeping mechanism is, right? It’s different from sleep. It’s noticeable different from sleep because often when you sleep you have a sense of time passing. You know, you went to sleep and you woke up, you may not be able to judge it exactly. But characteristically, under anaesthesia when people come to they feel like no time has passed. Any thoughts?
