J.Krishnamurti on the art of witnessing
is extremely difficult to talk about this, to convey in words the thing
that actually happens when you do not desire any particular change.
After all, that is what we mean by integration, is it not? When you see
the whole process of the mind, when you are aware of the various
struggles, divisions, cleavages, and in the centre there is no movement
to transform or to bring these cleavages together then the observer is
essentially quiet. He does not wish to trans form anything, he is
merely aware that these things are happening - which requires enormous
patience, does it not? But most of us are so eager to change, to do
something about ourselves; we are impatient for an end, for a result.
When the mind is aware of its own activities, not only the conscious,
but also the unconscious, then you do not have to examine the
unconscious to bring the hidden things to the surface - they are there.
But we do not know how to observe. And
don't ask, "How am I to observe, what is the technique? "The moment
you have a technique it is finished, you do not observe. The quietness
of the centre comes only when you are aware of all this, and you see
that you cannot do anything about it: it is so. As long as the mind
is active in its desire to transform itself, it can only be a model of
its own projection; therefore there is no transformation. If you really
see the truth of this, then there comes a state of mind which is not
concerned with change at all - and therefore a change does take place.
As I said, this is a very difficult subject to talk about. It is more
a question, not of verbal or so-called intellectual comprehension, but
of feeling out for oneself how the activities of the mind do impede the
"Sadhguru - More than a Life" - A biography of Sadhguru's Life by Arundhathi Subramaniam
Blogger's remark : I found that moving into meditative states was such a natural outcome of reading this book. One can see Sadhguru in various colours. His presence seems so real, so palpable. For me, its time for celebration. I am really angry with Sadhguru. He has always hidden the best parts of his life. But what else can you expect from the selfless nature of Sadhguru ? The many colours of Sadhguru is revealed in this book. Thanks so much to the Author of this book, Arundhathi. Without her, this would not have been possible. If anyone were to asks me to choose between this blog and the book, I will simply throw my blog in the crap. Reading this book has been an overwhelming experience. . . . . . . .
For people, who have been to Isha Ashram, they must have witnessed the Shrine of Sadhguru's wife "Vijji", who attained Mahasamadhi during the Consecration process of Dhyanalinga. They way she approached her death, even Gods will be jealous of her. May this jealousy florish in all corners of the world. One cannot help falling in love with Sadhguru's wife. She will always be a inspirational figure, for all my life. . . . . . . . . . .
I have been virtually living in the periods of intoxication. Intoxicated by love. Intoxicated by energy. Intoxicated by bliss. These two beings, Sadhguru and his wife Vijji, Its really difficult to comprehend, the kind of sacrifices they have done, just to see, that people like us could aspire to live life in the highest dimension. How could I ever repay my debts to them ? I am bound to live my life in “Sweet Suffering” because What I have received from them is infinite and what I can give is always limited ? I am blessed that they have come to my life. . . . . . . . . . . .
There is so much in this book that every seeker who is in the spiritual path, should have it beside him. Be it Samyama or the 90 days Wholeness Program or the Rich Spiritual Heritage of the Yogis or living life in reality, there are many things which I am unable to elaborate the significance of this book here. This book is throbbing with energy. I have been virtually holding this book like a being, closer to my heart. There are no gaps in the book. It is a continous series of plots, which are to be unfolded in the next page. But has you come to climax, it starts of with new mystery, new turns. Feeling every page, every word, followed by the period of silence. Acutely aware of the sweet sense of energy it emitted. Once we start reading, we cannot leave her unread. It is just like a child, where if he is given half the share of his food, he will continue to nag her mother, unless she fulfills his appetite. It will compel you, call you. All this might look fairy tailish. But these words come from my experience.
One thing it has given me is, that Life is not here simply to vegetate. Simply eat, drink and sleep. We are born with inherent capabilities and we can live life to the optimum. It has inspired me to set definitive patterns of goal. Life will never be the same again for me.
I am leaving you the link, where the publishers of this book “Penguin” are giving a 21 % discount.
One thing that is important to note here is that, whatever I may write about Isha Yoga, it is always about my perspective of Isha Yoga and limited. It can never give a complete view of Isha Yoga. To know about Isha Yoga is infinite.
