I don’t know where I am | Sadhguru in Conversation with Kangana Ranaut | #16

Synopsis: Namaskaram Sadhguru. I would like to bow down with all my knowledge and all my ignorance and how much you mean to me. So my question is very simple. Whenever I go to watch a movie, I’m given a place and I can see the screen in front of me and the voice coming from somewhere and I understand where I am. But when it comes to my life, I don’t know where I see things,...

... where I hear things. Every night when I go to sleep, I don’t know where I vanish, where I come back from. Something within me is seeing past all these experiences that I have in my life. Having seen it, I can’t figure out where I am. I can’t understand what’s happening. I can see everything, I can feel everything. Whenever my hands get burnt, I understand this feeling, but I don’t understand where it happens. Whenever I do my practices, I can’t figure out where I am Sadhguru.

The critique of modern medicine | Sadhguru at Yale School of Medicine | #9

Synopsis: So when I was a medical student, I was a pastor of a church here at the time. And I would write my sermons on a hospital note paper. This was before EMRs. So I’m writing my sermon at the nurse’s station, and my attending physician came to me. And he said, “Dolittle, physicians are the priests of today.” And I said, “What? What do you mean?” I was offended....

show more...
... I wasn’t sure, was he joking, was he serious. He was serious. In the sense that people come to their doctor and they have pain. And maybe it’s back pain, maybe it’s pain in their heart. And I think people come to their physician and they look for absolution, acceptance, forgiveness. They look to be well again. And, perhaps, the critic of modern medicine is that we are trained to give a pill. But people want more. And it’s interesting that you bring this up that in modern medicine the expectation should be, efficient care, safe care. And that’s what we’re trying to do too. But I do think that maybe the world is becoming more secular and they don’t know where to turn. And so people look to their healthcare provider for all of it. What do you think?

How to embrace change – If you resist change you will suffer

Transcript: Why is change in life so difficult? When I was younger, I was excited by change. I looked forward to it, I was happy when it happened. As I'm growing older, I try to avoid it as much as possible and I'm not able to cope when it happens. It all depends who is initiating the change. Maybe, but is there something like an appropriate response to change? One reason why change is becoming difficult as you...

... get older is, you have found cocoons of comfort. There are many comfort zones you created. Any disturbance of that, you're disturbed now. When you were young, you were not looking for comfort, you were looking for life. Now you're not looking for life, you're looking for comfort, safety. See, when you were 16, 18 you had wild dreams as to what you want to do with your life. By the time you became 25, you cut down all the frills and thought this is all not practical, I am becoming practical now. All that happened is you were becoming a coward. But you said, I'm becoming practical and cut down many things and said, if I get a job, if I earn my living, this, this, this is okay. By the time you're 35, you're thinking if I don't get into any trouble that's enough. You're not looking forward to anything great happening. If I don't get into trouble, that's enough. But that's when you start getting into trouble. So you are not looking at life with zest. You're looking at life as safety. The more security oriented you are, the more disturbed you will be with every change that happens in your life. The essence of physical existence is change, isn't it? Isn't it so? Everything is changing. Is there anything that's not changing? Everything in the existence is changing, isn't it? The physical existence is constantly changing. The very essence of physical reality is change. Nothing is constant, even the so-called static states are dynamic in nature. Everything is changing. So if you resist change, you're resisting life. If you want an unchanging life, there's one beautiful place where nothing changes. That's your grave. Either you must go to your grave or you must get enlightened, if you don't want change. Then somewhere inside everything is same. But otherwise, as long as you're a part of the physical process of the existence, everything is change. There is nothing that is not changing. See this moment, you're inhaling. Next moment, you're exhaling. It's change, isn't it? If you don't want change, you stop it. So when you resist change, you must understand you're resisting the very process of life, not just your life. You're resisting the very fundamental process of life.

If you become an adolescent, you have hormonal problems. If you become middle aged, there is a crisis. Old age is horrible. Every phase of life, people are seeing it as some kind of a problem. Of course, death is a serious problem. So this combination of time and energy. We must understand the nature of what we're handling. Time, by its own nature, is such you do something it rolls. If you don't do something, it rolls. You don't have to push your damn side. Hello? As you're sitting here, it's rolling away. You're doing a lot of things, it's rolling away. You do nothing, it rolls away. You're awake, it rolls away. You're asleep, it rolls away. But without having mastery over time, nobody can determine the nature of their destiny in their lives. How to grab time? People are talking about time management. Have you ever managed time? As you sit here, it's ticking away. And what's sticking away is not a clock, what's sticking away is our life itself. Hello? Since I walked in, you're two minutes closer to your grave. Yes you are. Me too. This is the nature of time. Whatever you do, do not do, do anything you want, but you're not able to roll it back. It is only rolling forward. It is just that if you are happy, it seems to tick away very fast. If you are miserable, it goes very slowly for you.
