Discover the hidden sound within you

Every time his name is uttered, the sound would open up the person somewhere deep inside.

How To Overcome Sexual Desires?

If you notice, people who are deeply involved in some intellectual activity, would prefer to read a book than have sex. Trying to get rid of something is not the best way to approach it. Instead, you should find something deeper than what you know right now, then you will be easily able to drop it. If you experience something bigger than sexuality, than automatically you will drop it. Sadhguru says - "Sexuality is just a small part of you. People have become overly sexual only because of stupid morality, because they are trying to forcefully drop it".

What Is The Significance of Kashi

The word 'kashi' means tower of light. Sadhguru says - "This beam of light is the symbolism of Kashi, because Kashi is a machine, a yantra, a cosmogenic effort to bring the cosmos to you". Sadhguru tells us that in his experience the real energy structure of kashi is 33 feet above ground, and is going upto 7200 feet. At one time, there were over 72,000 shrines, each with their own method, but all with only one goal, that of - mukti (liberation). No one really knows how old the city is, as Mark Twain said "it's older than the legend". The city has been ravaged multiple times, and a lot of it is damaged. Still, Sadhguru says that energy wise it's still phenomenal.

Awareness of Mortality Naturally Kindles Spirituality

The reason why the yogis always chose the mountains is because there the body is reminded of its mortality.

How To Move From Lust To Love?

Lust is a strong need. Love is not a need. Today, people are physically inactive. Unlike earlier times, everything physical needed for survival is already taken care of. This has made people neurotic, because the energy is not worked out - it is trapped. Sadhguru says - "When you love, you settle down, nothing more is needed. You can just sit here for a lifetime. With lust you cannot sit anywhere. You either get into some mad action, or you are bound to go crazy". So, either, one works out the energy through physical activity, or another way is to simply drop it and move ahead - this is meditation.

How to Deal With a Thief – A Zen Story

This blog narrates two similar stories of a compulsive thief; one from "Les Miserables" and another a Zen parable. Sadhguru explains - a human being can face any kind of punishment given to him, but melts when faced with immense compassion. The way to deal with a thief is compassion and not punishment. A disciple should be someone who is willing to make use of every situation to grow and transform. Those who put conditions on the Guru, are not really interested in transformation - it is better to let them go, then to waste time on them.

Shiva – Intoxicated, Still And Exuberant

As a Yogi, Shiva embodies the three essential qualities - stillness, exuberance and intoxication. Modern science tells us that the core of the cosmos is largely stillness. In Yoga, 'Shi-Va', means ' that which is not'. Once someone experiences life beyond physical and psychological, they naturally become still. It is from this stillness that exuberance rises, which enables one to participate in life. Intoxication is a lubricant allowing one to engage with life effortlessly. Using chemical intoxication renders us incompetent. Sadhguru gives us a simple tool to develop these three essential qualities within ourselves.
