The True Miracle of Life | Sadhguru 5

We can either look at everything in the existence as a miracle, or everything as mundane and explainable. Sadhguru speaks of how the existence is both mundane and magical at once, and that is the beauty of it.

Sadhguru Talks @ Public Talk, Singapore, Aug 2009

****************************************


Sadhguru: physicality is always a limitation, isn't it? You can stretch it, but there is a limitation for physical body. Physical means limit, isn't it? Because the basis of possibility is a limited boundary. Isn’t it so? Only because there is a limited boundary, you can call this physical. If you take away a defined boundary that a physical form has, there is no such thing as physicality. That which is boundless is not physical, isn't it? ‘So, is there a boundary?’ Definitely there is. Nature has set up substantial limitations upon you, but what I am talking about is is you are inventing new limitations. This is not necessary. As it is nature has set up enough limitations upon you, you don’t have to invent new limitations and make yourself much smaller than what you are. A human being is… ____ (Unclear) there is so much talk about God and heaven and nonsense mainly because human beings have not realized the immensity of what it means to be human. That is the main problem. If you are experiencing the immensity of what it means to be human you wouldn’t be talking so much about other things. This (Referring to oneself) is a grand thing by itself. He makes a fish into a human being over the afternoon; isn't… is it not a grand thing? But he is doing it unconsciously. If he can consciously convert a fish into a human being it is a phenomena, isn't it? Isn’t it so? It is an impossible phenomena which all of you are performing, but unconsciously.

So how much of you has entered into your consciousness; that’s the question. If you look at it, actually not even 1% of who you are has entered into your consciousness right now. If a few more percentage points enter, suddenly everything that you do looks like superhuman. Now people around me everyday witness things which they can't believe. So people keep on saying, ‘Sadhguru, are you superhuman, are you a human being?’ I keep reminding them, ‘This is not about being superhuman; this is about realizing being human is super.’

Now, let me tell you a story. A certain man got spiritual thirst. In those days when they got a spiritual thirst they went into the forest. So he went into the jungle; found a nice rock for him to sit and meditate. He sat down; then he noticed a little away from him there was a fox; both its forelegs have severed - crippled fox. Probably in some trap, hunter’s trap, both its legs gone. Nature is not kind to any kind of incapability. This taking care of incapable people is essentially a human, you know, it’s a human society trait. In nature, if you are not capable of earning your own food you are done. So here there is a fox without both its forelegs but looking healthy and well-fed. He noticed this and he thought ‘How is this fox managing without legs?’ Then he sat down; he has to do his meditation; AUM… he started. Aum, Aum, Aum went on for sometime. As the evening came he heard the growl of a lion. The moment he heard horr… Aum went away (Participants Laugh) and he ran up a tree and sat down. He forgot about the meditation. Then the lion came with a piece of meat in its mouth; came and dropped it in front of the crippled fox. And the fox ate this meat and the lion went away. This man thought, ‘Oh, this is a divine message. God is trying to say something to me. A crippled fox being fed by a ferocious lion. This is a miracle of miracles. God is sending a message to me. What's the message, what's the message? What’s the message?’ He completely forgot about his meditation and started thinking ‘What is the message?’...

Even if you look just at cause or effect separately, or anything, the problem is the illusion of understanding and the illitressy of spirituality. We are not taught the proper usage of this mighty tool cognition. Cognition is just a glimpse of existence. On no level is something fully explainable, we still have to make boundaries to the object of observance and with that it is just a partial image of the endless miracle everything is. - Beautiful story Sadhguru, thank you.

A thousand imitations of the crippled fox before they realize to be the generous lion.

A million generous lion imitations before they realize it's impossible to be the nightmare existence that is the crippled fox without first being crippled.
