Discover the real you

Will you be surprised if I say you are not what you are! Because, over the years, you are corrupted, and bias and negative thoughts have made the real you a prisoner. The result: You are diverted from the path of spirituality and denied the right to be in bliss.

Spirituality is a way of life that not only makes you a true human being but also helps you take the right track to bliss. But the word 'spirituality' is perhaps the most corrupted word and it has been used/misused to make your life more complex and mysterious.

Of Mystics and Mistakes by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev addresses many such misconceptions in the mystic world that make life more difficult and miserable. He makes clear how spirituality is all about being yourself. Just be yourself and the whole world will open up and you will be somewhat in a liberated form.

Spirituality is not about God, nor is it about religion and heaven. It is all about you, the barest you. You have to be like a room whose windows are open to receive direct sunlight and wind.

Of course, one could argue that this is just a point of view and that one may or may not agree with. But one can't but appreciate the fact that Sadhguru, like Osho, celebrates the importance of being 'simply you' in its purest, natural form. The point here is that in the 'your own' form, you are like a just-born baby, innocent and pure of heart and mind.

Only the 'real you' can have a correct perception of things around you, and that will enable you to be loving, caring and helping. Only loving kindness can be the spurring force in the journey of a spiritual person. Love is the biggest "unarming weapon" to create a heavenly place on this planet.

By making your choice easy, spirituality makes you see through a clear mind for a better choice to live a happy and contented life.
