Sadhguru: In the body that you carry right now, what came out of your mother’s womb is hardly there – it is mostly gone. Today, whatever the number of kilograms you carry, it is all from mother earth. I am not trying to belittle the genetic or biological mother, it is just that if you are a spiritual seeker, it is extremely important you get the right perspective of everything. If you exaggerate things in your mind or with your emotion, you will point yourself in wrong directions and waste a huge amount of time and life. Because if you love somebody, you will exaggerate. If you hate somebody, you exaggerate. If you like somebody, you exaggerate, if you dislike somebody, you will exaggerate. Exaggeration means, either unconsciously or intentionally, you are deviating from truth. Deviating from truth means you are working against yourself. One who works against himself does not need an enemy. This is called self-help! That is the beauty of your life – you are completely self-reliant.

Every day of your life, you should appreciate all the things and all the people who are contributing to make your life what it is today.

So we are grateful and we appreciate both – our biological mothers and mother earth. We are here because of this mother and that mother. Every day of your life, you should appreciate all the things and all the people who are contributing to make your life what it is today. Everything that is needed for your wellbeing is just being taken care of by the creator. Every moment, every step that you take, the planet is not giving in and breaking up. Every breath that you take, the air is not escaping from the atmosphere and denying you. All these millions of motherly or fatherly forces are working every moment of your life. You did not ask and you are not paying a bill for all these. Simply everything is provided. So for everything that nature and people around you are providing, shouldn’t you bow down to everything in absolute gratitude? Because you are incapable of conducting your life without all these forces co-operating with you, without being asked.

If you look at it closely enough, there isn’t one thing in creation, without which you can exist. So I want you to look upon everything as a mother.

If you don't appreciate this, if you have lost your consciousness completely, it is because you are too busy with some rubbish that is happening in your head. That is the only reason anybody can miss all this. Something that is happening in your head is important because you think too much of yourself.

If you look at it closely enough, there isn’t one thing in creation, without which you can exist. So I want you to look upon everything as a mother. Today is the tree-mother’s day, tomorrow is the mountain-mother’s day, next day is your biological mother’s day. The reason why these days have been fixed is because otherwise, people will never think of their mother. Cultures have become like this. But if you are little more conscious, if you remind yourself and look at this, “Oh, these trees are giving me oxygen. They are supporting me every moment.” If you recognize this with everything, everywhere that you walk, you will become conscious.

What an amazing article!  I really liked this: "All these millions of motherly or fatherly forces are working every moment of your life. You did not ask and you are not paying a bill for all these. Simply everything is provided. So for everything that nature and people around you are providing, shouldn’t you bow down to everything in absolute gratitude?  "
I wish every one of us register these words (or make a everyday reminder chip for our brains) and be grateful!

Endless likes .....thoughts about all these were there in the mind but never recognized them consciously ....it is building me slowly and i will get there if i am capable enough to seek the truth....
I wonder why when a person is deprived of food and water dies eventually sometimes losing all his muscles and fat but the skeleton and skin remains, why doesn't it also diminishes totally before the soul leaves.

Mother has and continues to be with me, in me at all times. The grace is relentless and warm. Referring to the cover pic, last I knew, boys also have mothers.

Pranaam Sadhguru; I really enjoyed the article; retrospect how ignorant I was about everything around me!

Somewhere I haven't been interested in celebrating days like Women's Day, Mothers' Day, Friendship Day and the like. I felt if one is ever aware of their significance to self, there's no need for such a celebration. But at times, it does help to re-kindle any lost gratitude, and I like that.

Though I haven't been used to celebrating special days like this, I have always loved to make days special for my near and dear ones. So, when one of my friends' b'day coincided with Mothers' Day, on my b'day message, I asked him to convey my thanks to his mom for the friend that she had given me.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="http://www.SEORankingLinks.xyz&quot; rel="nofollow">Seo Plugin</a>
