Adventure and spirituality
Sadhguru: To simply live here goal-less is what a spiritual process is about. That does not mean being lethargic and lax. A spiritual process means to live in intense involvement with what is there right now but with no goal. If you have the courage to sit here in such a way – “Wherever the hell it goes tomorrow is fine with me, but right now I will do my best in whatever I am doing,” you will naturally be spiritual.
A few years ago, I met a small group of adventurers who have climbed some of the highest mountain peaks in the world. They walked across the North Pole, and they spent over three months in winter in the Andes climbing to twenty-two thousand feet above sea level. They want to be in a place where they don’t know what is coming the next moment. They had come to meet me and one of our volunteers was talking to them about the Inner Engineering program. I just looked at these people and saw that I don’t have to waste three days with them. I told them to just sit with me and close their eyes and that’s it. Everything just happened without uttering a word.
They never thought of spirituality in their life, they only want adventure – they want to live in a way where they don’t know what the next moment will bring.
I didn’t have to teach them anything, I just had to ignite them because they were well prepared. Their bodies were good and healthy, and the mind was open and ready for anything. That’s all it takes.
