The only reason why you are naturally not spiritual is that you’ve empowered your instinct of self-preservation too much. All the time it is trying to make you like a bubble in the world, separate bubble. Not willing to mix with anything. So unless you keep your instinct of self-preservation down, you will not become spiritual in any way. You will not know life as one happening. You will always be an individual, trapped.
Have you noticed, even in your general life, when you’re very happy you keep your guards down? Isn’t it so? When you’re unhappy – fully shielded. When you’re happy – little down, isn’t it? When you’re very happy, it’s all down. Have you noticed this? So this is the reason why you’re willing to be happy only among certain people.
Because you don’t know how to be just happy and still know where to stop life when it has to be stopped. You’re willing to be happy only with five people in your life because you think that is the only safe atmosphere where you can be happy; because you have always understood happiness as a certain vulnerability.
See just see you walk on the street and you smile at anybody, they’ll look like this. Why? What’s their problem smiling back at you? What are they going to lose? They think, ‘If I smile, he may exploit me.’ How will he exploit you? If he comes to pick your pocket, you can stop him. If he smiles, even a pickpocket smiles at you, why can’t you smile at him? What is the problem?
Just try today and see, just go out and smile; people will look like this, they’re… they’re surprised; somebody’s making me vulnerable to life. They want to go on the street like rocks, they want to go home and become life. Doesn’t work. After some time you become a rock there also. If you want to be life, you must practice it everywhere, isn’t it?
So meditation gives you that space between you and your body, between you and your mind. Whatever suffering human beings have known, it has either entered them through the body or through the mind. Do you know any other kind of suffering? There are only two kinds of suffering, isn’t it? Once you have a distance from these two things – this is the end of suffering. Once the fear of suffering is taken away, only then you’re willing to venture into other dimensions of life; otherwise, no matter what I tell you, you’re only looking for safety.
Isha Kriya, the meditation is a step toward raising human consciousness. It is a very simple but powerful process.
Daily practice of Isha Kriya will bring health, dynamism, prosperity, and well-being. It is a powerful tool to cope with the hectic pace of modern life and empowers people to experience your lives to its fullest potential.
Rooted in the timeless wisdom of the yogic sciences, Isha Kriya is a simple yet potent process created by yogi and mystic, Sadhguru. it has the potential to transform the life of anyone who is willing to invest just 12 minutes a day.
“Isha” refers to that which is the source of creation; “kriya” literally means “internal action.” The purpose of Isha Kriya is to help an individual get in touch with the source of his existence, to create life according to his own wish and vision. Daily practice of Isha Kriya brings health, dynamism, peace, and wellbeing. It is a powerful tool to cope with the hectic pace of modern life.
Today, for most people, the word “yoga” usually conjures up images of twisting the body into impossible postures. The physical aspect of yoga is only one facet of this multi-dimensional science. Yoga is a technology to bring the body and mind to the peak of your capabilities – allowing one to live life to the fullest.
It is the vision of Sadhguru to offer “one drop of spirituality” to every individual. Through the Isha Kriya guided meditation, the possibilities of a spiritual process, which was once available only to yogis and ascetics, are now being offered to every human being in the comfort of your own home.
Peace of I,
