“The sign of intelligence is that you are constantly wondering.” ― Sadhguru
Spirituality does not mean any particular practice. It is a certain way of being. To get it, there are many things to do. It is like a garden in your house. If the soil, sunlight or stem of a plant is in a certain way, it won’t yield flowers, and you have to do something. You have to take care of those things. So if you cultivate your body, mind, emotions and energies to a certain level of maturity, something else blossoms within you – that is spirituality. When your rationale is immature, it doubts everything. When your rationale matures, it sees everything in a completely different light.
Whenever any human being experiences something bigger than himself, the traditional way of looking at that is, “this is God….” The whole idea of God is just that - anything more significant than you. It could be a human being or an experience, or some aspect of nature. But is this spiritual? No, this is just life. When I say “just life”, I am not trying to dismiss it as a small thing. It is the greatest thing. Only when life becomes an overwhelming, powerful, blissful experience for you, you want to know what could have created this. If you want to know the process or the source of creation, the most intimate part of creation for you is your own body, isn’t it? There is a captive creator here, trapped within you. You shouldn’t miss him here. If you don’t miss him here, if you know the source of creation within you, you are spiritual.
Going to the ocean or to the mountain and seeking an experience may be beautiful; you must enjoy the world the way it is, but you must understand, the fish in the ocean doesn’t think it’s a spiritual experience, nor does the mountain gots think the mountain is a spiritual experience because they are there all the time. If you bring them to the city, they may think it’s a spiritual experience. It is the breaking of the barrier within you – something broke within you. You were in a shell. This broke and became a bigger shell. What I’m saying is, if you get used to the bigger shell, it feels the same way as the previous one.
So if you want to become boundless and you are trying to attempt it through physicality, you are essentially trying to go towards boundlessness in instalments. Can you count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and one day count to infinity? You will only become endless counting. That’s not the way. Through physical means, you can never reach towards boundless nature. Every human being is looking to become boundless. If you give him whatever he wants, for three days, he is okay. On the fourth day, he is looking for something else. Somebody may label it as greed, and I just say this is a life process in the wrong direction. If you want to know boundless nature, you must experience; you must perceive something which is beyond the physical. Something you might have touched when you jumped into the ocean, when you saw a mountain, when you sang a song, when you danced, when you closed your eyes, in so many ways, it could have happened to an individual. You touched it, but now the question is of sustainability
Human Lives with relationship inwardly and out worldly. We are constantly in relation to the outer environment or nature. Nature outside constantly effecting our and well being that is one of the functions of our day to day life then we are relating with another being, including friends, wife mother, father and son etc.
But it’s not all the easy we get in conflict with our duties with reference to our Job, family and friends that may lead to stress and sickness. Thus our effort is not to do therapy but a way to do the right thing and bring Light to the issue which may be created by our self. Thus once we know the cause of the problem, that problem is not outside; rather, it’s within oneself. Most of the problems are generated by our own minds. As a spiritual teacher, our job to show you where is a mistake is lying. Our effort would be to sort out the problem in the light of ancient spiritual scripture like Bhagawat Gita and Upanishads has enormous wisdom to remove our ignorance and suffering.
