This is All that is Needed to Open the Doors of Life | Sadhguru


If you really want to be in the lap of grace,
what is needed from you is you walk like a, not in pretension, not a pretentious devotee. As I said earlier, you do not know how this
tree actually functions. You do not know how this blade of grass happens. You do not know how anything here is working,
do you know? No. So I want you to look at everything,
everything seems to be little more intelligent than you. When you are so dumb, you better… when you
see a tree if you see the mountain, a blade of grass, everything… I want you to look at them for who they are,
for what they are. ‘No, no my body is also…’ That is fine, your… Your body is super… your body is doing many
things that you do not know. You, as a person, what do you know? Do you know even what this blade of grass
knows about life? You do not know. So I want you to look at everything, even
a grain of sand, it knows a lot more than you about life. So you are a junior here; they were all here
way before you and they know much more than you about life. When you are a junior who has just come today,
if you don’t behave, they’ll drag you to death. You know, that’s a new trend. So I want you to walk with a certain sense
of wonder and devotion at everything. Just try this in the next 24 twenty-four hours. This’s all that’s needed. This is not… this is all that is needed
to open the doors of life that you do not think too much of yourself,
you do not think something about you which is not true. Whatever you think about yourself is very
untrue because when it comes to basic life, what this soil knows you do not know, isn’t
it? Yes? Generally, in America, they call soil, dust… I mean ‘dirt’. What this dirt knows you do not know. Your brain cannot do what this soil is doing. Is it a fact, hmmm? Is it a fact? So when there are such big people, stalwarts
around you, you walk gently. Do you understand? Don’t go like this because they are not
simple; if you just walk like this, if you walk with devotion,
slowly you will fall into the lap of grace. Without this, a spiritual path is a damn hard
thing to do. What I have been through I don’t want anybody
to go through. That’s why the effort. Grace means nothing to a whole lot of people. They don’t even It’s not that you have to think about it
or you have to talk about it, It is just that if you’re too full of yourself,
only if you’re too full of yourself, you can be unconscious of Grace. In the sense, You don’t even have to go to school and
know about, planets and solar system and galaxies and
stuff. Just, as a human being if you look up, you don’t know where this begins, where
this ends. In the middle of nowhere, here you are sitting
on a planet spinning and, see, ‘you’re fine’. Definitely not you’re doing, isn’t it? Definitely, you can’t do this. Whatever is holding all this up, One title for it “Grace”. Now, whether you’re available to it or not
is the question. When we say Grace, we are not looking at a
certain kind. We’re looking at that which is the basis
of everything. Because you do not know how this solar system
is held in place. You do not know how the whole universe is
held in place. You do not even know how you happened, really! How so many cells are staying together and
make your life happen? you don’t really know. You have explanations and explanations, but
you don’t know. If you knew, you would create one right now. If you knew exactly how we would make it,
isn’t it? So, when there is so much that you do not
know, everything is still happening great, obviously,
it’s not an accident. So whatever is making all this happen that
energy, that force, we call it ‘Grace’. But now the question is about making yourself
available. If you have a stuffy nose, the flower means
nothing to you. If you’re blind, light means nothing to
you. If you’re insensitive, nothing means anything
to you. So, it is a question of becoming sensitive. Most people are ego-sensitive, they’re not
life sensitive. Right now, you have to be cautious about what
to say and what not to say, to a whole lot of people because they’re
horribly ego-sensitive. For everything, they will crash within themselves. First of all, you create one illusion. Then you create another illusion of it falling
and rising; It’s a very bad game. You must be disillusioned soon. If you’re truly disillusioned, absolutely,
you will always be available to Grace. If you have no illusions of your own, you
will wonder about everything. How can you not wonder about everything, about
your very existence? If you have no conclusions in your mind about
anything, simply here, you will be soaked in Grace. Even now you are, but you cannot enjoy it unless you’re conscious,
that’s all. It will not work for you because you’re
not conscious. It is working for you, but still, you cannot
fully benefit from that. See, it is a fact, a medically established
fact, if two people eat the same food, both of them will not get the same nourishment. Exactly the same food two people eat, they will not get the same level of nourishment, because it depends on your ability to draw
sustenance from that. So to develop this capability, all of us are
in Grace, but to develop the capability to draw sustenance
from that, so that this life becomes an expression of
that Grace. See… (Sadhguru Stalls) You know, if you have smelled this flower this is typical to southern India. Phenomenally fragrant. You think our garden department is pouring
fragrance at the roots? No, they’re putting filth, believe me. Yes Even if you put filth, see how fantastic it
became because that’s its nature. Because it does that, we’re planting the
tree, nurturing it, taking care of it, everybody’s concerned on how it is growing. Suppose, it was giving out a smell that was
unpleasant to you. Suppose it just took the filth and threw out
the filth through the flower. No, we would have taken it out, isn’t it? So, Grace brings many benefits. Once you’re exuding Grace, everybody wants to nurture it, everybody wants
to promote it, everybody wants to be a part of it, because you’re exuding Grace. Now, the question is not at all about whether
you’re in Grace or not. You are, otherwise, you cannot exist. The question is only about are you exuding
Grace or, are you transforming this into something nasty
and letting it out on everybody? Let me tell you a very well-known story in
India. It’s folklore, Just about everybody in the country should
know this story probably. There was a sage living in a jungle, blind
of vision he has no vision, simply sitting in one place. Rarely people pass this way. When they pass this way they give him something
and he lives by that. No vision. One day it so happened, the king and his retinue
of soldiers and ministers, whatever, they all went out hunting. In the hunt, in chasing a deer, a spotted
deer, they lost their way and the king got lost,
separated from the group, because, you know, the king has the fastest
horse. The best one he rides, so he went away ahead
of them and got lost. They were all searching, searching, they all
got lost. And then, the soldier came and asked the sage, “Did you see the king?” He said, “No.” Then, a commander came and asked, “Did you
see?” He said, “No.” Then the minister came and asked, “Did you
see?” “No.” Then the king himself came there. Then the blind sage immediately recognized
he’s the king, “Oh, your people have been looking for you. First… your soldier came, then your commander
came, then your minister came.” The king observed and saw that the person
was blind, and then he asked, “Oh, Divine being, how do you know that
first, it was a soldier, then the commander, then the minister?” The sage said, “Well, the first one who
came said, ‘Hey, blind one! Did you see our king coming here? Did you… Did anybody come this way?’” So I knew he must be your soldier. The second one spoke with authority but without
respect, I knew he must be one of your officers. The third one, the minister came, he spoke with great respect, so I thought
he must be your minister. Now you came, now you touch my feet and…
refer to me as the Divine one you must be the king.” Whether you eat food or breathe or drink water,
anything, “It is Grace”. Otherwise, how? Two parts of hydrogen and one part of oxygen
becomes life-making water, “This is Grace”. Okay, you can give it an explanation, but you don’t know why this should happen,
isn’t it? All that is happening is “Grace”. Now you drink this or you eat this or you
breathe this, Will you also exude Grace? Because you conceive… you… you consumed
Grace, you must also conceive Grace and exude Grace,
isn’t it? But unfortunately, people take in fantastic
things into themselves, turn it into nasty nonsense and lets it out. But look at the tree you give it filth, it
gives out fragrance. “It’s time “. If you learn the way of the tree, if you learn the way of the rock, ‘You will exude Grace’. So the question is not whether you’re in
Grace or not. Definitely, every creature is in Grace. Are you capable of exuding the Grace that
you consume? “That’s the question.”
