How can I dissolve myself into you?

Transcript: Q: I read this in your book. So how can we dissolve ourselves into you? Sadhguru: I am not sulfuric acid. Let's understand this. What is dissolution? I don't know how you got this, that's not what has been said anywhere. It's a little off but let me correct that. See whether people are conscious of it or not conscious of it, every human being, knowingly or unknowingly,...

... is seeking solutions to wherever they are. Isn't it so? Or in other words, the nature of human intelligence is such, that wherever you are there is a problem. So this is the nature of human intellect because it gets only one face of everything. It is always thinking everything is a problem. When you don't have a problem, you're dissolved. Please say this because you are not a problem, you're a possibility. So dissolution does not mean destruction. Dissolution means you broke the boundaries of your individuality because your individual existence is a myth that you have created. You are very much individual. You don't like the person who's sitting next to you right now, so don't breathe the air that they are breathing. Do one thing just close your nose like this, hold it like this for two minutes, you know that without communication you won't last for a moment. This is not just with respiration, this is with every particle in this body. Without being in communication with the entire existence, this cannot exist for a moment. So dissolution is not something that you have to do. If you drop the conclusions that you have made about yourself, this is already dissolved. Modern physics is telling you this, isn't it? You are already dissolve, you don't have to dissolve. It is just that you have a fancy idea in your head. To get that idea out is the spiritual process. Spiritual process is not a real process. Spiritual process is just helping you to distance yourself from your physiological and psychological process so that you see life just the way it is.

Can I have two Gurus?

Transcript: This question is from Richa. Can a disciple have two masters? In case one is initiated by two spiritual masters, is it advised to stick to one way and one master? Or practice what is taught by both of them? If I follow one master, then does it mean that I am being disrespectful to the other one, who chose to initiate me on the path? Well, being with a guru or a spiritual master is not a question of...

show more...
... loyalty. But it's a question of integrity. What is the difference between loyalty and integrity? Loyalty is coming from certain emotions that you have. Integrity means that you are dedicated to the purpose for which you are there. Any place. You are in some place, what is the purpose of that place? You are absolutely dedicated to that, you will not do something else there. Loyalty is a different thing. Loyalty is not needed in this affair. So, whoever you are, if you are here and you've gone somewhere and you're struggling, please don't struggle, just dump me. And wherever you are, just do that. Because the very fact you've gone somewhere is in some way, for whatever reason, it did not work here. So you go on somewhere. At least there you do well, as long as you grow. What's my problem? Or if you were somewhere and now you're here and you're struggling here, dump the nonsense that you carried from elsewhere and do what you require to do here. Because this is like, you know, coconut gardens and mango gardens. You don't go into a coconut grove, take one of these trees and plant it on top of the mountain. It won't last for a month. That's not where it works. It can only work here. Nor will you take a mango tree and plant it in a desert. Not going to work. So the very fact you move from one place to other, either by your own choice, or some other compulsion, or maybe that master is dead, or I'm dead, when it happens. Well once you find the need to go somewhere, give yourself absolutely there, wherever that is. Because you can't be in this place and dig in that place, it doesn't work like that. Does it mean you're disrespectful to somebody? No.

How to energetically connect with Sadhguru

Transcript: Q: I have read in a book that those who are sitting with you, you will give liberation or good life. I see that it kills self-striving, it creates dependency. Why you should decide about me or anything? I should decide everything about me. So I read in your book that, so it means if I'm sitting with you means, I have to follow you. Sadhguru: No. I said, only if...

show more...
... you sit with me. So it creates dependency, it means I'm dependent, I'm not striving. You'll pay for it. If you're not striving, you'll pay for it. There's a fee. If you don't strive, one will pay, isn't it? In anything, in any aspect. Whether you're studying for an examination, or you're striving to improve your career, or you're doing business, or you're pursuing spiritual process. If there is no striving, there is a fee for it, isn't it? No? Is there or is there not? There is, always. Even if you get married, you have to strive every day to make it work otherwise it won't work. I'm saying it doesn't matter which aspect of life, if there is no striving, you pay. I understand what you're trying to ask but that's a very simplistic process. I'm saying if you really sit with me, I didn't mean if you sit on the grass out there, this will happen. I said, when you really sit with me. The very fact that you're asking the question, obviously you're not sitting with me, you're sitting by yourself. Sitting with me is a different aspect. If you really sit with me, yes after that no striving. But you will not become lethargic, for sure. It will just become a natural process for you to be like that. There are many people here for whom getting up in the morning and doing morning 5:30 sadhana is not a striving. There are some who are struggling and striving. For others it's just like that, like all the birds wake up in the morning, they also wake up and do what they have to do. They're just here living, breathing, eating, and doing whatever they can. There is no striving, okay? That is only, when you don't really want to go somewhere, you want to go but you want to go somewhere else also, then there is striving. When this is the only place you want to go, there is no striving. Simply you go, you know. There's no struggle and striving in that. That's why I said, it's up to you. Whether you want to go to your destination joyfully or kicking and crying, it's up to you. You can decide, but if you really sit with me, if you really sit with me means you got connected with me in some way energetically. Then you can't go anywhere, you'll only go in one direction. You do this, that, whatever you do, you do circus and go or you go without circus, it's up to you. But that's if you really sit with me, not if you sit with the grasshopper there.

How does initiation happen?

Transcript: When you ask, how can it happen without the physical presence of a guru? The physical presence of the guru is actually a hindrance because right now you look at me and no matter what, because the very nature of the mind is such, it is making a thousand judgments as it sits here, isn't it? Not all of it is conscious. But a whole lot of judgments are going on within you. Because there is a person. A...

... person means, you can like him, you can dislike him, you want him, you don't want him, so many things. If I say something nice, wow. If I say something nasty. All this will happen, isn't it? Because a person is sitting. How he sits, how he stands, what he says, what he does not say, all this becomes important. The physical presence is not of any consequence actually. If physical presence is everything, that's called karishma, not grace. This is not karishma, this is grace. But I sit here, I don't sit here, I can run the satsang the same way. Only problem is you cannot remain focused, that is your problem. If you're willing to sit here simply focused as you are right now, no video, no audio, no nothing. We'll still run the satsang. Wonderfully well, okay? It's just that, nobody. What are we doing? Because you have that problem. Either I have to sit here, or a video has to play, audio has to come. I'll tell you, no video, audio, nothing. We can still initiate people if you're just willing to sit. It is just that the necessary attention is needed, that's all. Even without attention, in your sleep we can initiate you. But benefit may happen but you don't know why it's happening. You think you just got lucky.

Why does everyone judge people who are on the spiritual path? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Kangana Ranaut | #1

Synopsis: When I first heard about you many years ago, I rolled my eyes and I muttered something about guru types. And until a few months ago, when my sister gave me your book, Inner Engineering, which happens to be a New York Times bestseller, it changed my perspective. And when I was working on this interaction, I came across a few interviews of yours. One of them being a senior...

... writer from my field. And, he was vehemently attacking you. He was trying to frame you for being a fake. And he himself is accused of plagiarism. So my question is, why does a person connected to spirituality on its path, why does everyone feel entitled to judge them? And honestly, if it wasn’t a New York Times bestseller book, I would’ve not read it. What is it about this West stem, that we can’t do without it? I mean there are so many books. And unless Americans don’t approve of it, it just doesn’t make sense. Why is that?

So I’d possibly please request you to highlight what are the disadvantages of practicing with, I’m sorry the term may seem harsh, but a quack yoga teacher would be?

What is Tantra? Are all Guru’s Tantriks? | Sadhguru Wisdom

Synopsis: Sadhguru says, unfortunately today, Tantra is misunderstood as 'unbridled promiscuity'. Tantra means technology, it means certain capability. Tantra actually requires extreme discipline.
