Keep the Bhakti Out
Sadhguru explains in a program why he is not working to propagate devotion. Someone who has gone through modern education is generally incapable of devotion because they have been trained to dissect everything. Not that devotion is impossible for people today, but without the proper context it can lead to hallucination. When a person goes beyond the limitations of his intellect, then devotion will happen naturally.
Sadhguru: Somebody who has so many questions should never talk about bhakthi because bhakthas have no questions. That’s why I am telling you for you people I am keeping the bhakthi out because you are incapable of devotion. If we talk devotion you will end up deception. So, better just slice everything and look what is inside because your mind is made like this, if I give you this and say you should never open this, you should never open this, just keep this with you, this will take you to heaven. In your sleep you will walk… sleep walk and go and open it. Isn't it so?
So, that’s the kind of mind you have, so don’t talk bhakthi now. We’ll see…when those things change we’ll talk bhakthi because I am not here to propound philosophies for you. I am here just to give you a method that works for you, not for somebody else. There was some great bhaktha somewhere, he was dripping with ecstasy, it doesn’t matter, that’s not for you. I am not saying you will never be capable of that but right now with a thinking mind, a mind which likes logic more than anything else, with this mind don’t talk bhakthi, you will just deceive yourself. When such a thing comes that your mind and what your mind says is no more significant to you then bhakthi will naturally come, you don’t have to do anything about it but right now what your mind says is very important for you, isn't it? Yes or no? When what your mind says is important for you do not talk bhakthi, it will be a waste of time and life.
