Now anything that you want to do you want to look at the planets and stars, you want to step out of your house the planets should align themselves properly. Yes? Right time, wrong time. Are you looking at all those things? Rahukalam, gunakalam, whatever else. If you want to get married you go and ask the third person can I live happily with my wife? I think it’s obscene. Whatever the kind of fool you marry why can’t you live well with her or with him?
Whatever kind of idiot you are married to, once you have chosen to marry why don’t you live well with them? Or if they are showing some new kind of madness you did not predict, why don’t you leave them? Anyway with all the predictions, horoscopes all matching well still these two people nobody can match, isn’t it? Any astrologer will match horoscopes for people but can they match these two people? To what extent you are being responsible for the other only to that extent your marriage works. Is it so?
How responsibly you handle the other person, only to that extent it is working. Is that so? No? Personal development I am talking. Questioner I am not talking with reference to that. I am not talking about as a predictive science. Sadhguru I understand; I am talking about developing your life. Questioner Like for example you say that on certain period of moon like Amavasya or Pournami certain energies are more predominant. Sadhguru Yes, I will come to that.
Now, see every shape, every form has a certain impact upon you. Now this vessel is sitting next to me; it is emanating its own kind of vibrations. Every object is doing it but now it’s up to me whether I allow this vessel to influence me or I influence this vessel. That’s left to me. Which way should it be? Which way should it be? This vessel should influence my life or I should influence its existence? Human nature should do that, isn’t it?
Now all this stars and planets; they are inanimate things, aren’t they? Rock and stone, isn’t it? Rock and mud. Isn’t it so? Inanimate. Now should inanimate things rule the destiny of your life or human nature should rule the destiny of inanimate things? Which way should it be? Human nature should if you have realized the potential of what it means to be this;
otherwise inanimate things will rule you. Now Pournami comes, full moon day. Do you know during full moon days and new moon days people who are little mentally disturbed go hyper on those days? Are you aware of this? Do you all go crazy on new moon days? Ha, do you? No. Compared to them you are little more stable.
What is the Third Eye Sadhguru
Sadhguru So, what is referred to as a third eye is, we always said Shiva will open his third eye and he can burn up the whole existence if he wants. You need to understand this is a dialectical culture. You don’t take these things literally, logically. You need to always read behind it. Unfortunately, people start interpreting it as a logical thing and its whole thing is so badly distorted. Dimensions which cannot be expressed logically are always packed up in these kinds of stories so that they are preserved without distortion. So, Shiva opens his third eye and either everything burns up or he sees everything clearly.
So, third eye is not a physical thing. It is just that if your energies reach a certain peak within you, you have a new clarity of vision of life. You see everything from a completely different dimension. So, you start seeing things. It’s an inner eye we say. We can say you can turn it inward or outward whichever way you turn it. So, these eyes are only outward. You can’t role your eyeballs inward and see what’s within you, isn’t it?
So, third eye is both ways. If you want, you can turn it inward or you can turn it outward, whichever way you are seeing life beyond the normal limitations of your perception. Your perception has risen beyond the physical that is the third eye. Why is it connected to a particular spot in your body? Among the seven chakras, the sixth dimension is called as Agna. Agna is located slightly above theâ€¦ where the eyebrows meet. There are three dimensions attached to it. These three dimensions are traditionally named after Shiva, three different forms of Shiva,
but these three are actual experiential points in the body where if your energy moves to that point, your experience of life alters itself. The whole process of whatever spiritual process you are doing consciously or unconsciously is fundamentally to move to a higher plane of perception, isn’t it? Yes? You call it God, you call it Kundalini, you call it yoga, you call it what you want, but fundamentally the whole thing is to raise your perception from a limited physical perception to a higher possibility. So, if your energies are in the lowest chakra, which is referred to as the Muladhara,
food and sleep will be the most dominant factors of your life only food and sleep. You will not know anything else. If energies move into Swadhishthana, then you are a pleasure seeker. You enjoy the physical world in so many different ways. If your energies move into Manipuraka, then you are a doer in the world, you are an achiever. If your energies move into anahata, you are a creative person, maybe you are an artist, you are a painter, you are something, you are more creative about life. If your energies move into Vishuddhi, if they became dominant there, you are a power house. Power need not mean just mean this.
Human beings can be powerful in so many different ways. So, this is the power center. If energies move into your Agna, then you have clarity of vision. Now, you are intellectually realized not experientially realized, intellectually realized. You touched a point where life cannot disturb you. Life cannot take a toll on you because intellectually you are realized, but still you are not ecstatic in any way. You don’t know the ecstasy of life, but you have stability of life â€“ nothing can touch you, nothing can disturb you, you’ve come to that point.
