Question: Namaskaram Sadhguru. I want to know how the cycles of the sun and the cycles of the moon affect the human being, their body, their mind, their soul, and what should one do to ride these waves?
Sadhguru: The very process of our birth is connected to these cycles. You know clearly, the feminine cycles and our birth is very directly connected. Apart from that, this 12 and 1/4, somewhere between 11 and 3/4 to 12 and 1/4 is one solar cycle. It varies a little bit.
If you just manage to live to complete seven solar cycles, and 1008 lunar cycles, then you can break a certain bond with the earth
If you complete seven cycles of the solar system, if you complete seven solar cycles, you will complete 1008 lunar cycles. That is, if you live for 84 years and 3 months, you would have completed seven solar cycles, and 1008 lunar cycles. If you just manage to live that long – I may be encouraging a lot of rubbish now – If you just manage to live to complete seven solar cycles, and 1008 lunar cycles, then you can break a certain bond with the earth. Your bond with the planet is broken, largely. And very easily, with very little assistance. Even if you know nothing about anything, with very little assistance, you can go beyond the cycles of birth and death.
Because you’re born with the planet, and the material of the planet, the memory of which you carry within you, and the memory of you, the material also carries. You will break that bond. Once this bond is broken, then the work that needs to be done is very simple. When people say the ‘salt of the earth’ – it has more meaning than most people understand. You are the salt of the earth. This whole body is just a small blob, which has just popped out of this planet.
What you call as myself right now is just a little blob of earth, which just splashes out and falls back
What you call as myself right now is just a little blob of earth, which just splashes out and falls back. And this keeps happening, because there is a bond between the planet and you. The energy that you refer to as myself and the material, which has become the manifestation of yourself, these two things have gotten linked. It’s a very deep, it’s a very profound relationship. But if you complete seven cycles of the sun and, not and, along with that you complete 1008 lunar cycles, then your bond with the planet is largely broken. From thereon, it becomes very simple. With very small push, it could be done.
So, if you have not done anything right – all you have to do is, torment the world with 84 years of you. Because ultimately it is only the result that matters.
