The Joy of Being in Grace

In this week’s Spot, Sadhguru reminds us, “Grace is not something that is on and off. It is not something that you question every weekend. It is just on. You just have to become conscious of it so that you know the joy of being in Grace.” Enjoy!
 
 
 
 

How do we know the Guru's Grace is upon us?

Have you noticed when you are in a hotel lobby, there is background music going on, and after some time, you do not even know it is there? Only if you want to make conversation will you find it interferes – otherwise, the music is on all the time, but you do not notice it. Or, in your home, some machine is always buzzing, but you only notice it when you enter the house. You do not even know that your breath is on; only if it goes off for a minute will you know for sure. That is the only reason why you do not know the hand of the Divine is always upon you.

So, what is the problem in not knowing if something is on all the time? Life will still be happening, but the joy of being in Grace will be completely lost. Grace is not something that is on and off. It is not something that you question every weekend. It is just on. You have to become conscious of it so that you know the joy of being in Grace.

When I say know the joy of being in Grace, you must understand this…I have said this in many ways, but I am sure most of you have chosen to ignore it. Once you sit with me, even for a moment, there is no such thing as privacy in your life. The moment you sat with me, particularly initiated by me, there is no such thing as whether Grace is on or not – it is on all the time. It is just that you are expecting Grace to fulfill your plans. This is the old habit of going to the temple or church and telling God what he must do. If he does not do it, you will change your God.

Grace is not about fulfilling your petty plans. Anyway, your plans keep changing. At different stages in your life, you thought “this is it” and the next moment you changed your decision. You want to go on vacation, so you ask, “Sadhguru, why are you not helping me?” Don’t keep questioning this every other day, “Is Grace with me? Is it not with me?” A guru’s Grace is not designed to fulfill your plans; a guru's Grace is designed to fulfill life's plan. To make you, a piece of life, arrive at its fulfillment.

Love & Grace

Namskaram, being initiated by Sadhguru, we are blessed to be in his grace. What more could we ask for?

As I walk through my life, I stamp on thorns and shed blood. I curse the thorns and moments later, I realize it was my mistake. Sadhguru, the Creator of every creation, I'm blessed to realize the stupid that I'm before The Ultimate that You are. Lemme never go unaware of You that I err again.

Such a wonderful discourse. I myself experienced god's grace several times when I was trying to fulfill my 'duties'. Things just fall in place even when it seems impossible. I believe that's grace.
