Being a skeptic is useful in making sure most things can pass the BS test before it gets serious consideration. Leaps of faith in general are always held to the highest level of scrutiny. With so much that is unknown in the world anyone who comes with “The answer” pretty much has their job cut out for them as far as I am concern. Coming across Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev has been intriguing to say the least. Actually the best way to describe his approach is plain and simply refreshing. At this point in the post I will put a “full stop” and pause to say that this is in now way an endorsement of Jaggi Vasudev aka Sadhguru. This is about being able to widen one’s range of discourse to include discussions about the metaphysical in a way that doesn’t require dogma or leaps of faith. At the end of the day when one is asked to “know thy self” we often reach for external descriptions and labels. We may cite our race ,our culture, our family, our profession or our religion as examples… even our gender. Yet there is an element to us that is beyond all these acquired labels or as Sadhguru puts it .. “identities”. Posting this video is not to sway anyone to become a devotee of this man. The truth is I am certainly not one. The main reason I have given any consideration is because he is willing to have the conversation in the first place. As he states many people come with philosophies and beliefs already worked out in their own head yet are unable to fully identify who they are. These philosophies only serve to communicate the nature of their limitations ie., how far they are willing to go. If it is already bounded.. how can it be complete ? The believer…what ever it is that the person believes feels that everything is bounded by his/her conclusion.It seems this is but a part and certainly not the whole. I seek…without assuming to know all. I heard a story ” A certain ant went out to gather food and came upon a massive mountain of sugar. He climbed the mountain and took several clumped grains of this wonderful sugar into his jaws. While climbing back to the small hole that was the entrance to his nest he declared that he would soon return and take the entire mountain back to his ant nest” It is with this logic most people who have had a morsel of light assume that they can make that method serve to encompass the whole. The whole is already the whole it need not be stuff into our entire mind for us to feel we have awoken. Read More →
