The First Step in Spirituality – Vinita Bali with Sadhguru

Sadhguru looks at how it is only when we realize we are mortal that our spiritual process begins. He gives us a simple process that we can put to use every hour, to serve as a first step.


Vinita Bali: So Sadhguru, what are some of the things that you know, all of us who are here listening to you, what are the one or two things that we can do tomorrow, which will… which will increase this level of awareness, perception, thoughtfulness?

Sadhguru: Oh! You’re talking about a takeaway, hmm?

Vinita Bali: In a sense but you know, an enduring takeaway. It’s not light hearted, it’s not you know. because we’ve… you know. we’ve heard a lot and I’m sitting here and saying, okay, so what do I do differently tomorrow?

Sadhguru: Let’s say to learn A-B-C, the twenty-six alphabets – at least if you had learned the Indian… Indian languages, you know fifty-four whatever – twenty-six alphabets, how long did you take to learn to write them properly in their proper order and use them whichever way you want, how long did you take?

Vinita Bali: Oh! I’m still at it, a long time.

Sadhguru: At least three- four years minimum.

Vinita Bali: Yeah, yeah.

Sadhguru: To learn to make sentences and use the way you want, maybe you took twelve-fifteen years of education.

Vinita Bali: Much longer than that, yes.

Sadhguru: Yes? So, you gave so much just to learn some word craft but to know something about the fundamental nature of your existence, which could just change you dimensionally, you want to know it in two minutes. Why are you so unfair?
