Questioner: Namaskaram Sadhguru. Can a human clone become spiritual?
Sadhguru: Now, whatever you want to call it – it doesn’t matter what you call it. You’re just producing a human body which is alive, means the life process is there. It has all the ingredients. I am only talking about – when still women are able to bear children, I don’t see why you’re wasting billions of dollars in a laboratory. There is a pleasurable way of creating children. You don’t have to make it so obscene, and ugly in test tubes and this and that, and you come out of that. No.
A woman does not just give body to the child. She moulds the child
And above all, a woman does not just give body to the child. She moulds the child. And how she moulds the child depends entirely on how she is. You must see the elaborate care that they used to take in this country. Once a woman conceives, every step. How she should do, what she should do, what she should not do, whose face she should see, whose face she should not see, because everything has an influence. You’re not only giving it a body, you’re also moulding the consciousness of the person that you’re bringing out. And this is – do not think in terms of reproduction.
You must understand, you are manufacturing the next generation of people. How the world will be tomorrow is determined right now in your body. It’s a tremendous responsibility. It needs to be handled that way. Because, we know how to do a few fanciful things – everything that we learn to do, we don’t have to do. This is the source of destruction on this planet. Everything we are capable of doing, we must do. Because we are still juvenile. As a humanity, we have not matured in our minds. Everything I can do, I must do. Not necessary. We must be able to take a decision what to do, what not to do. What is needed and what’s not needed, isn’t it? Are you a clone by the way?
