Most of us are so busy with survival, trying to keep death at bay, that we forget to live life. Sadhguru tells us that one who does not embrace death does not know life at all. Shiva – who has been symbolically associated with the Third Eye, the phallus and being ash-smeared – embodies an awareness of the simultaneity of the processes of life and death. The truth, says Sadhguru, lies beyond the easy oppositions of life and death, this and that.
