Interesting video, i feel. Its about the idea of a human “awakening”.This is an interesting subject for me.
I feel, that perhaps the deepest question of all is, what is it really, to truly be a human of whats honestly awake
Sadhguru poses, within this video, that human don’t awaken, merely due to them “not wanting” to be awake . This is the only option, of what Sadhguru proposes here in this video.
However, i feel i can sense another option. This option,
- the idea that there are certain people, who seek truth, who really don’t want to be fooled into believing in such things as a “human awakening” , if in fact this idea is actually honestly no more than a mind construct
Now why didn’t Sadhguru mention this option?
That’s what i’d like to know. As a very strong INFP personality trait, then i’m also very naturally inclined to ask, why not mention that there could be this other option, as well?. Specially when Sadhguru’s mind is very alert . Surely this means that Sadhguru will be most likely to have already thought of this other option
As an ex cult member im now vigilant and very aware of how easy it is, for us human to be coaxed into the idea of human awakening.
And what more, its obvious that even very evil human can coax people into believing that they have gained spirituality, and have awakened
Perhaps they didn’t actually awaken,at all, but had instead been ALL put off to sleep?
Maybe “being mindful”, is to be aware that there is nothing extra above and beyond our existence
What about that possibility?
Perhaps all the guru and spiritual teachers, are all running rings around us (our minds) , leading us to believe in what actually doesnt even exist, and then being able to capitalize, themselves, on the very idea that perhaps they are spiritually awaken being
What if this is in fact the true key to what it will take to be an awaken being?
To have need to awaken to the possibility, that perhaps us human, have been led to believe bullshit
Lets face it, im certainly not likely “going to be able to get rich” from my act of being someone who posing this option ?. To pose this option, i must need to keep my feet fully grounded. As for one thing, i certainly wont be in line to be able to claim fame to any role of be a “spiritual” guru
Will i ?
Not that i care. No. I personally don’t. Because all i’m seeking , is to be able to try to understand the truth
Without need of being led up the garden path, by any so called spiritual leaders, or guru
I seek truth. Because i sense that OUR WORLD really does need to learn the actual truth (if there is any such thing)
Our world need to learn this truth. Because, for one thing, just look at the sad sorry state of our environment, now today. Look at the sad sorry state of the fast diminishing resources. The extent of the pollution, so bad that now there are even huge problems with our seas becoming dead
I couldn’t care less about not becoming powerful or rich, due to not being able to pose as a guru
Couldn’t give a damn about that
I do care about the option for a future, for humanity, some of what will also need to include some PEOPLE of my own flesh and blood
This is my own concern
Chances are, that when i die. Then there’s “no amount of wealth or fame” , what then will ever actually be of any real further use to me
So then why should i bother to crave it?
Why? . What for ?
So that i can have more money and fame than what other people may. So i can travel our world and go on holidays
Even all these kind of things, i still cannot take with me, when i die
However, if i bother to seek for-truth, then at least this truth, can then possibly still remain (long after i’m dead and gone)
I’ve become so wary of ALL so called spiritual leader. I have. Perhaps even to extent of hyper-vigilance
We need to ask ourselves this question
- If human awakening is true. Then how come it can even seem to happen, within groups where there is immense evil whats OBVIOUSLY active
In my mind, this problem should serve to help set alarm bells ringing
Then there is this other question. If spiritual awakening has always been for-real . And been honestly true.
- Then how come ,its needed to take so long, before “so called” spiritually awakened human , would finally catch on, to the approaching problem of environmental destruction, and pollution and so on
How come ?
If they were truthfully “spiritually awaken” super-human being, then shouldn’t they have ALSO had a special ability, to at least be able to begin warning us all, far far earlier before now
Why not . Why not if such a thing as a human spiritual waken , should truthfully ever actually exist
Now we say, oh well but lets not forget, that ther first nation people, were in fact onto the knowledge of this
And thats correct
The problem still remain. There have been miles and miles of other so called “spiritually awaken” being , who ALL still constantly claim to ALSO be a “spiritually awake someone” as well,ever since those other times too
None have been spiritually awaken enough, to be able to foresee, the approach of envirmental destruction
Not until more lately now in recent times
Now at a time when such things have finally just become plainly obvious
So much for so called “spiritual awakenings” then?
Perhaps they might be better classed as being “spiritual sleep-nings”
Or what ?
When our world has been full to the brim (population wise), of people who’d all been believers, many of whom had also laid claim to being “spiritually awaken”
How come , could our world have ever been able to have become so badly fucked-up, environmentally?
I cant see how it stand to reason. It only make sense to me, if i am to consider, that so called spiritual awakening , have instead truthfully been far more like “spiritual sleep”
I seek to understand the truth
This is one other option, that Sadhguru, has been able to have completely overlook ?
Well ,so its seems like, to me, anyway
I’d like for my feet to remain firmly grounded. My own interest is for future. Not fame. Not fortune
However, i am still open minded . To possibility of spiritual awakening
Simply because i STILL cannot see reason to deny it 100%
Sadhguru, towards the end of this video, touches on the phenomena, about how when human are faced with stark reality, such as being faced with the thought that us human will die and may then cease to exist after our death , that these thoughts can then be what helps to make us feel suffering most of all
Even if this is true
This still doesn’t alter the fact that this might still be the-truth of what actually happens
Im questioning what great long term benefit it is ever been to humanity, for us to want to deny this truth?.
I can easily see how it might definitely have been short term benefit to human mental peace. Has help many human to find a way to overcome their own feelings of anxiety , that comes from “facing up” to stark reality. Such as anxiety caused via thoughts of death and through thoughts of their own possibility for eternal demise
But perhaps this has all come at a far bigger cost to humanity as a whole?
What about the idea that the need for anxiety, has been buried so that anxiety would at some stage need to surface , for future generation
Exactly like what i sense is perhaps happening, far more often, right now. Today , for our own generation,and perhaps even more so with that of our children’s generation, and their children’s generations too
We now are finding it far less easy , to ever fully escape from feeling of anxiety
Due to aspect of our environment
Aspect of what have evolved, in big part, mainly due to human craving to want to constantly cling to “thoughts” of their own possibility to gain life-eternal , for themselves
Now ,it is perhaps our offspring and their offspring, who’ll now have less chance to easily enjoy their own life here on planet earth.Due to ever increasing reason for anxiety. Ones of what stem back to earlier generations constant craving to cling to ideas for life eternal option, for themselves
Brethren could also claim to be fully awake, themselves as well too, within their own faithful-way of living
But then, are they really awake. Or they more realistically, been put off to sleep ?
And if we would agree ,that the Brethren must be all asleep
Then how many other groups of so called “spiritually awaken” human beings, are in fact in affect all fallen asleep as well too ?
“All pretending to be awake while deeply asleep as can be “
These question are important . Its important, today, that we would ALL stop to consider it
So as to try to seek answers to the truth
