Come Alive: Changing the Way You Experience Life

Does life seem too burdensome? Sadhguru looks at how most people seem to be missing out on experiencing all that is beautiful around them.
Come Alive: Changing the Way You Experience Life
 

Q: Sadhguru, a while ago, I used to feel an overwhelming connection with Mother Earth, and I was extremely grateful for that. Then, maybe because of lots of work and gaps in my sadhana, somewhere this intensity died down. Could you please explain what happened?

Sadhguru: No matter what comes into your life, even if it is the highest level of Grace, if you take it for granted, it will not just weaken but vanish after some time, in your experience. This is happening to people all the time, right from their birth. Look at yourself or anyone else around you – are they experiencing the bounty of what life is offering all the time? How many people are experiencing all that is beautiful around them? The air that they breathe, the water that they drink, the food that they eat – how many of them are truly enjoying it? They think there is some greater purpose other than life. They have a mission of their own.

If you stay really alive to everything, you will know the bounty of the planet, you will know the beauty of the sky, you will know what is beyond – everything will be within your perception.

Those who think they have a mission other than life are the kind of people who take up “God’s work” and fight with the rest of the world, because other things have become more important than life to them. They can do terrible things because of what they believe in or what they think is more important than life itself. Terrorist attacks are dastardly expressions of that, but in some way, every human being is doing it. They may not be doing it to other lives, but they are doing terrible things to their own life. They do not really experience life in any way.

For a whole lot of people, life is not just burdensome – it could be miserable or torturous. This is not because someone is physically torturing them but because they think they have something else to do on this planet, other than living. I am not talking about being alive just in a medical sense but being truly alive and in tune with everything. Being alive to everything in existence is your only business. If you stay really alive to everything, you will know the bounty of the planet, you will know the beauty of the sky, you will know what is beyond – everything will be within your perception.

 

 

If you think you have something more important to do than being alive, death will come. You may not be dead in a medical sense but dead to everything around you. If you have moved from life to death, it is time to get back to life. Death will come anyway – don’t hurry it up.

You can adjust the slats to the side or open, or slightly
to the other, as sunlight dictates. Proper material and
support is vital when building custom closet shelving; an improper build can present many safety hazards.

I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any
interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
In my opinion, if all website owsners and bloggers made goood content as you did, the internet
will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Ontem , enquanto eu estava no trabalho, meu irmã roubou meu apple ipad e testado para ver se ele pode sobreviver um 25

Meu iPad é agora destruído e ela tem 83 pontos de vista.

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance
from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?

I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out
pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to start.
Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

There is more than enough already for the purposes we use it for, and two we should use it as a recyclable resource, to be truly 'mined' from the oceans and the surroundings
for re-use... If society wants plastic they need to don't
have any alternative however to acquire it from where it has been discarded.
