Awakening Human Consciousness | Sadhguru
Right now, there is no experience of life, Largely you’re just a bundle of thought, emotion, ideas, opinions and prejudices. Your psychological drama is being mistaken for life.
You must see how people go, it’s very important. If you watch people die over % of the people on this planet, When the moment of death comes, there is no pain. There is not even fear, But you will see Brazil the Mac on their face like this.
They go because It’s like you went to the cinema. You bought the ticket, went to the cinema, you sit there during the trailer itself, you fell asleep and When they turn on the lights after the movie, you, oh God, What it’s already over. This is how most people are dying.
This is the most unfortunate way to die because Before you open, your account is all your own thought and emotion kept you so busy. You thought this is life, but when the moment of death comes Suddenly, you know The drama that you were turning on within.
You look so real, but the moment lights are going off. Then you know this is not it your psychological drama. We can all sit in the same place and each one of us can have something different going in our minds right now, yes or no. So obviously, what’s happening in your mind is your psychological reality. It’s not existential!
It has now in essential basis. Furthermore, it is in this sense. People are telling you to be at the moment Because there is no basis to your pSychological reality. You can make up Whatever you want, or in other words your creation.
Your petty creation has become larger than the magnificent creation of the creator, so spiritual process means you set This anomaly right, You understand your pSychological reality is something that you’re making up.
I’M not saying you should not make it up, You can, but you must be able to switch it off when you don’t want. The problem. Is it just on hours? So, it looks like that is the reality. It is not the reality you just making it up.
Yes or no. The made-up world has become larger than the real-world Just to correct this spiritual process. You understand what is real And what is made up.
This means your spiritual: if you can identify What is existed actually true, and what is not true, You will navigate you navigate your way through life effortlessly. Isn’t it If Your mind, your body takes instructions from you being peaceful and joyful is not even issue.
Is it issue? If your body and mind is taking instructions from you? Is it an issue? Is it even a consideration? Do you go after even bother about it?
How to be peaceful, how to be joyful, There’s no such thing. This is coming from a very unnatural situation because the Made-up world has become larger than the real world.
What’s happening on, your form has become bigger than the cosmos. Isn’t it So spiritual process does not mean? Is not prescribing How you should be been, whichever way you want you like misery, do it What’s my problem If you are enjoying misery, what is my problem?
I will not tell you be joyful. You like to be miserable. I appreciate that. But if you had a choice, would you choose misery? No Maybe once in a way you like to read a tragedy or watch a tragedy, that is somebody else suffering.
Not you isn’t it. You may want to watch a tragic movie or a drama, but you don’t want a tragedy in your life. Isn’t it so. I trust your judgment on these things, so spiritual process means that you read the user’s manual. You know exactly how this works.
You keep it. Whichever way you want That’s up to you, you, like Misery once in a way. You like to you know people like some bitter things, not just sweet things. You want to enjoy that. What is my issue?
I have no issue to enjoy it, But as long as you are choosing consciously Right now, misery is happening. Compulsively, isn’t if it’s not happening consciously? It is happening compulsively once you get into the cycle. There is no other way it rules, you being human means. Just this, that you can consciously decide.
What is the nature of your experience right now? That means being human being in a state of compulsive reaction means lack of evolution. Yes or no. This is the animal nature. They can’t help it.
They have to be in a compulsive state of reaction. That’s the only way they can exist. That is their nature. Right now, being human means Everything that animals do you also do they eat, they sleep, you sleep, they reproduce you reproduce They die.
You die only thing is we can conduct the same things that they do Compulsively?
We can do it consciously. That’s the big difference. Isn’t it Yes or no? If you do not exercise that one thing that you can conduct yourself consciously, It is a backward step in the evolutionary process, So spiritual process means a forward step in the evolutionary process.
That means everything is conscious for you.
Nothing is unconscious, the very way you sit and breathe. Everything has become conscious for you once It’s conscious, You will conduct it. The way you want Another only and only source of Miseries life is not happening.
The way you think it should happen. Is there any other source?
Oh No, not happening the way. You think it should happen If your mind thinks the way you want. If your body functions. The way you want Life is happening. The way you want that spiritual process Awareness is purely life.
What level of intensity your life is functioning? That is the level of awareness you are But mental attention you can put it on and put it off. Your aliveness, you cannot, you cannot put it on and put it off its on.
What is the level of intensity is all there is, but mental attention you can close it isn’t it. You can turn it on.
You can turn it off isn’t it. So, You can pay attention to something you can withdraw your attention from something, Is it, so that’s a different dimension? That is the act of the mind. That is again not reality. It is just attention of the mind.
It is the act of the mind. Mind can do many things, but its of a different dimension. It is psychological, it is not existential, see right now. Are you awake First? Are you alive?
Yes, Next, are you awake? How awake enough to hear what I say awake enough to see where I was sitting awake enough to know that this many people are around you? Yes, Now that you are this awake, you are perceiving all these facts which are around you. You know this. Many people are around you.
You know I am speaking. You know. I am sitting here All these things, you’re perceiving How, through what Through your sense organs, Not only through your eyes through your ears and certain amount of other senses, also working So through your five sense organs.
You are perceiving right now Because you are at a certain level of wakefulness. You are perceiving what is around you, At least the physical around you.
Yes, You don’t know what is happening in the person who is sitting next to you isn’t it. You do not know what’s happening in this men mind. You do not know what’s happening in that men heart.
You do not know what’s happening in his energy You don’t know all these things, but at least the physical reality you have perceived. You are wakeful to that point.
Suppose you feel a little drowsy, then you find you don’t know what I am talking about. Did it happen? Suppose you feel little drowsy what’s happened. Your wakefulness has come to a lower grade Because your wakefulness has come to a lower grade.
Do you see I am talking, but you are not perceiving Yes, or no Ears are still open, isn’t.
Its Nobody plugged it Sound, is definitely going and hitting the eardrums Isn’t it. So, What I speak is anyway going and hitting the eardrums or no. It is, but still, you are not perceiving because your wakefulness has gone one level lower than it is right now.
So if it can get lower, you can also get it higher isn’t it logically. So, if your wakefulness move into higher and higher dimensions, if it has to get there, you have to crank up your energy.
If your energy life energy moves into higher levels of intensity, your wakefulness moves into higher dimensions of wakefulness As your wakefulness moves into higher levels of dimensions, higher dimensions, your perception becomes clearer and clearer, and the penetration of your perception deepens Once the penetration of your perception deepens.
It changes the very quality of your experience. Right now, you sit here. There is just a man sitting next to you suppose your wakefulness becomes such everything that’s happening within him. You know right now your experience of sitting here is very different.
Isn’t it Yes or no, does it make it clear Now, if you try to raise your wakefulness till not happen. If you try to increase your perception, ill not happen. If you try to widen your experience, till not happen. The only thing that is in your hands is you can crank up the intensity of your life energies. You can only work on raising the voltage.
You cannot work on increasing the light. Can you Even physically? Can you try to increase the penetration of light, But you can work on raising the voltage isn’t it? If you raise the voltage all these other things will naturally happen.
