Do we even know what existence is? In this 2-part video, Sadhguru speaks of becoming free from genetics and external impressions, and of the trap of intellectualizing the existence. Only a mad man would expect existence to fit into his logic.
So when we talk… when you use words of the… of whose meaning we do not know, that’s called rubbish, isn’t it? But, maybe socially very valuable rubbish because it confuses somebody. If you can confuse a few people, they may believe you’re intelligent. Really! If you want to be perceived as intellectual, you just have to confuse a few people. You don’t have to bring clarity to anybody. The work… The spirituality or the spiritual work is about bringing clarity, not confusion. Confusion we do only when people have deep conclusions. When people have conclusions in their mind which they believe is everything, then we confuse them a bit so that their conclusions get loosened up.
Once Shankaran Pillai won the Meghalaya state lottery. Is that still on? Is it still or gone? Tch. No lottery? Okay at that time, 1984. We change the date, what’s the problem? After all we made up the dates, we can use it the way we want it, isn’t it? Not now, 1984 he won a lottery and people gathered, press gathered and everybody said, ‘Wow, you won a lottery! Fifty six crores!’ You heard those days, isn’t it? ‘So, how did you get this lucky number?’ So Shankaran Pillai said, ‘I had… Three consecutive nights I had a dream. In the dream it said, ‘Number eight, number eight, number eight three times.’ Three times it appeared – eight, eight eight. Then I thought three times eight is thirty two and I went for the thirty-two ticket and I got it!’ Then people said, ‘Well, three times eight is not thirty-two, it is twenty-four.’ He said, ‘What does it matter, I won the lottery!’
So I’m telling you, Existence does not fit into your logic. It’s not logically correct. It’s not logically correct, but it’s fantastic. That means what’s wrong? That means what’s wrong? That means your logic is too limited, isn’t it? ‘No, Existence is not correct, why is it not fitting into my logic?’ This is the argument of a madman, isn’t it? This is the way it is. If your logic doesn’t fit into it there’s a problem with your head, not with the Existence.
