Devotion: Into the Lap of Grace
Sadhguru says, if you walk gently, with a sense of wonder and devotion, slowly you will fall into the lap of Grace. This is all that is needed to open the doors of life.
If you really want to be in the lap of grace, what is needed from you is you walk like a devotee, not in pretension; - not a pretentious devotee. As I said earlier, you do not know how this tree actually functions. You do not know how this blade of grass happens. You do not know how anything here is working, do you know? No. So I want you to look at everything, ; everything seems to be little more intelligent than you. When you are so dumb, you better… (Gestures)- when you see a tree,(gestures Gestures bowing down); if you see the mountain,(gestures Gestures bowing down); a blade of grass,,(gestures Gestures bowing down),everything - I want you to look at them for who they are, for what they are. ‘No, no my body is also...’ That is fine; . your Your body is super; your body is doing many things that you do not know. You, as a person, what do you know? Do you know even what this blade of grass knows about life? You do not know. So I want you to look at everything, even a grain of sand - it knows lot more than you about life. So you are a junior here; they were all here way before you and they know much more than you about life. When you are a junior who has just come today, if you don’t behave, they’ll rag you to death. (Laughs)(Laughs) You know, that’s a new trend. (Laughs)(Laughs)
So I want you to walk with a certain sense of wonder and devotion at everything. Just try this in the next 24 twenty four hours. This's all that’s needed. This is not… this is all that is needed to open the doors of life that you do not think too much of yourself, you do not think something about you which is not true. Whatever you think about yourself is very untrue because when it comes to basic life, what this soil knows you do not know, isn't it? Yes? Generally, in America they call soil, dust… I mean ‘dirt’. What this dirt knows you do not know. Your brain cannot do what this soil is doing. Is it a fact, humhmm? Is it a fact? So when there are such big people, stalwarts around you, you walk gently. Do you understand? Don’t go like this (Gestures) because they are not simple; if you just walk like this, if you walk with devotion, slowly you will fall into the lap of grace. Without this, spiritual path is a damn hard thing to do. What I have been through I don’t want anybody to go through. That’s why the effort. (Laughs)
