I like Sadhguru. I’ve been watching him on youtube and reading his books for about 4 years. I’ve also visited his beautiful temple and yoga center in Tennessee a few times. I’m not a devotee but I am definitely a fan.
What I love most about Sadhguru is his clarity, his quick wit and his willingness to speak the truth, sometimes sweetly and sometimes incisively. In this video, he is responding to someone who just asked him about death. His response is brilliant.
During this major time of transformation, as we collectively sculpt a New Normal for humanity, we have opened the door to talking about taboo topics, including death. To me, this is a gateway to internal freedom, which is where outer freedom comes from.
I think it’s a great time to start having more faith in ourselves. Let’s keep doing what we can to contribute our best. Let’s sculpt the best future we can as we enter the next phase. With no expectation other than we give it our all. Because it feels so goddamn good to do so.
Let’s be more conscious. Less compulsive.
