Devotion – Be Always Available To Grace

Sadhguru says - "Once one begins to transform one’s energy into a higher possibility, into a subtler possibility, one cannot say in how many ways and in how many forms that which is the source of existence will reach out". So, you must keep all doors and windows open. If you are in a state of devotion, it is a simple way to receive. Sadhguru says - "So that is what devotion is – a suction pump. If you are a devotee, it is devoid of you. You do not exist, so you are like a vacuum. Wherever he is, he has to come out".

What Is Devotion?

Sadhguru says that devotion is like having a love affair with the creation. What people usually call love, is not love, but discrimination. Because they love one person and hate another. "Whether it is a tree, an insect, a bird, an animal, a man, a woman, or a child – learn to look at everything the same way. Without transcending this discriminatory mind, without establishing a non-discriminatory way of looking at everything, you will never be a yogi".
