When Spring Happens
In this week's Spot, Sadhguru writes about the first day of spring and the opportunity this season avails for spiritual seekers. "Today marks the Spring Equinox. When spring happens, all life flourishes because even an insect understands, 'This is the time for me.'" Sadhguru then tells us, "The upcoming years will be a big springtime for spiritual seekers; make sure it happens to you." Enjoy!
 
 
 
 

Today marks the Spring Equinox. When spring happens, all life flourishes because even an insect understands, “This is the time for me.” Even a little worm understands, “This is the time for me to make my life.” The upcoming years will be a big springtime for spiritual seekers; make sure it happens to you.

Walk and sit in such a way that even the very grass that you are sitting upon will bless you because you are sitting there, not curse you because you are sitting upon it. There is a certain way to do it. “How Sadhguru? Tell me, how will the grass bless me? Should I eat it?” Understand that between you and the grass, between you and the insect in the grass, there is not much difference in the cosmic scale. You are less than a blade of grass. What a blade of grass is for you, in the cosmic scale, you are less than that.

If you understand this every moment of your life, if you keep this in your memory, you will walk gently, you will breathe gently, you will exist gently. Gentleness is not something that you practice because somebody tells you, “Love everybody.” If you understand the size and shape of who you are in this creation, it will be just like that.

Let all that you touch be a blessing.

Love & Grace

oops just killed a bunch of ants today!!!Just a doubt sathguru can we avoid people who we feel drain us, or should we go around pleasing them.Don't we need to love ourselves also from time to time,and respect ourselves.

Sadhguru, did mention once that we cannot please every body in the world. Even the great Jesus was hated by many people and he was even crucified. I believe we should not go on pleasing any one. We should live our life happily at the same time not hurt others at the same time we should not be too selfish to think of just ourselves all the time and do the best that you can do for others.

nature and humans have such a relationship where both benefit from each other. spring is such a beautiful season where colors come to life and everything just seems vivid and alive.

@facebook-100002289891471:disqus When we all have progressed spiritually, we will realize that we are no different from others. He/She is as same as I/Me. We will only be separate physically and together in consciousness. Yoga literally mean Union.

We humans give back almost nothing to many many life forms from which we barrow and depend upon. Those life forms will exist even if humans are not there. But humans cannot exist without them. So in every sense we are kind of a low life to trees, to insects and many other living beings that make life possible on earth. We have every reason to respect and revere every other life form because those life forms have made our lives possible.
