It is a trajectory.” [5:04]   “If you are a little sensitive to life you will realize you’re the biggest issue in your life.” [7:12]   “If you have the fear of falling down and suffering you will not go very high. [11:45]   “The privileges of the nature of your experience must be in your hand.” [12:43]   “A child is not a legacy. It’s a life. And it’s an individual life. It has to be what it has to be.” [15:37]   “Death is a closure. Life is a possibility.” [26:36]   “Your experience is entirely determined by you.” [29:15]   “Only when your attention and involvement is indiscriminate does the universe open up to you.” [31:30]   “The content of our life will not change our life. It is the context of our life which changes our life.” [43:55]   “This, this is a living cosmos. Everybody's free to capture as much as they want. If you capture a substantial amount of life, your very presence will become a significant life. Otherwise, you will become a mediocre life. This is the important thing. It's not the knowledge you gather in your head. It's not the muscle that you gather in your body. It's the life.” [44:45]   FOLLOW SADHGURU: WEBSITE - https://bit.ly/2HuY6mX FACEBOOK - https://bit.ly/28LgANv TWITTER - https://bit.ly/1JoTe0I INSTAGRAM - https://bit.ly/2VaF3UO YOUTUBE - https://bit.ly/2m9Djvb   BOOKS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy - https://amzn.to/2vwHxUy [1:58] Adiyogi: The Source of Yoga - https://amzn.to/2vwHxUy [2:02]   ORGANIZATIONS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Isha Foundation - https://bit.ly/2JpyZWL [1:40]
