Question:

Ever since I started my practices, my pain, my grief, my joy, everything has become so much more intense. Isn’t spirituality supposed to settle all these things? Am I going off track?

Sadhguru: Once you are actively on a spiritual path, some fools might tell you, “Everything will be okay.” Being on the spiritual path is not about making everything okay. If you want things to be okay you have to fix them, and still only some things will be okay, not everything. The significance of being on the spiritual path is not to seek comfort but to put your life on fast-forward. So, more fluctuations than you ever imagined possible may happen in your life. Things that would have happened in ten years may happen in two months. Whether you have the courage, capability and the stability to take it is the question. If you want it evenly spread out and you want to come back for we don’t know how long, that’s up to you.

Every subatomic particle in your system is in constant transaction with the whole cosmos. You only believe you are a separate entity.

“Today, doctors are saying that nearly 80 million Indians are heading to be diabetic. One of the reasons for this is because most Indian people are on a single-cereal diet. People are eating either only rice or only wheat. This can definitely cause health problems. It is important to bring in a multigrain diet in one’s life.

Traditionally, people always ate lots of grams, pulses, legumes and many kinds of grains. But slowly those things have gone away, and if you look at a South Indian’s plate today, there will be so much rice and just a little bit of vegetable. This is a serious problem. This shift to a total carbohydrate diet that has happened in the last twenty-five or thirty years needs to be reversed because a person’s long-term health will be seriously affected if they just eat lots of carbohydrate and very little of other things. This is a basic conceptual change which needs to happen in people’s minds. The majority of the diet should not be rice but all the other things. Rice is your choice – whether you want to eat or not, you decide according to your hunger levels.”

ON WATER


Today, particularly in the last few years, much experimentation has been done and they have found that water has memory – it remembers everything that it touches. We have always known this in this culture and we have been using this in so many ways. Our grandmothers told us we should not drink water or eat food from just anyone’s hands; we must always receive it from people who love and care for us. In temples, they give you one drop of water, which even a multi-billionaire fights for because you cannot buy that water anywhere. It is water which remembers the divine. This is what theerth is. People want to drink it so that it reminds them of the divinity within them. The same H2O can be poison or it can be the elixir of life, depending upon what kind of memory it carries.

Because water has memory, we are very concerned with how we store it. If you keep water in a copper vessel, preferably overnight or at least for four hours, the water acquires a certain quality from the copper which is very good for your liver in particular and your health and energy in general. If water is being violently pumped and is travelling to your house through many turns in lead or plastic pipes, with all these bends and turns, much negativity happens to the water. But while water has memory, it also has a way of unfolding itself back into its original state. If you just leave this tap water undisturbed for an hour, the negativity will undo itself.

If you’re constantly traveling like me, if your food is not necessarily controlled, minor poisons are always getting into you in various forms. Copper handles those things for you.

Poem to Kailash...

Like the snows, I come and go
Like the snows, I melt at your feet
Like the snows, I adorn you
I am your footwear and your crown
Just trying to be as much to you
As you are to me

Will not only keep coming to you
As long as my lungs can hold
the life breath and my legs can hold
up to the pressures exerted by
the embrace of my Mother - Earth

Don't you mistake my southern
origins for the arrogance of
the ten-headed Lankan king

With my sheer absence
I will hold and transport you
South of Vindhyas. As the
ancient people of these gentle
lands have longed for You
for too long. Steadfast in devotion
their hearts throb with
One single emotion
for You, You and You.

The Benefits of Organic Cotton and Silk

The kind of clothes you wear can impact your physical and mental health and wellbeing. So it is important to look at what the weather is like today and what kind of clothing would be best for your health and wellbeing. But most people are not thinking of their wellbeing. You will see, for example, in a country like India, many people walk around in forty-degrees-centigrade weather wearing black jackets and ties! What you eat, what you wear and how you live are about your wellbeing. Unfortunately, so many people just wear whatever is being put on them without looking at what they should wear and why.

Why organic clothing matters is because there is a huge difference in the way your body functions when you wear synthetic clothing and when you wear organic clothing. You needn’t believe anything that anyone says. Try it out and see how it feels. Wear raw silk or cotton – even your inner garments – for a week and see how your body feels. Then wear something tight and synthetic and check. You will see a big difference in the level of comfort and ease at which your body functions because there is a certain aspect to what wraps the body.


Another thing is, how you can exude who you are is also enhanced or restricted by certain substances. Cotton and silk are best for your system. Particularly raw silk or cotton that is not treated in any way has a certain kind of impact. It is not that if you wear synthetic clothing you will fall dead. You can still meditate and be the same person even if you wear synthetic from top to bottom – but with a little struggle and effort.
