Also that one should not attach too much weight or importance to one's thought, that is we must accept that we do not know everything there is and we actually are quite stupid, knowing this can help us put our ego in check as well as have a broader perspective on the world and the universe itself along with its unfathomable knowledge. : Sadhguru talks about a lot of aspects of mind and he does it with a subtle humour that has a good feel with it. He is addressing these issues like a he is speaking to a child which makes his perception easier to grasp and understand. : Sadhguru says - "They have told you, "Seeing is believing." Seeing is not believing - everyone sees what they want to see." : Sadhguru says - "A certain freedom has been given. You can become anything you want. This moment you can become god-like, this moment you can become brute. Both are possible within you right now."

    This book is devided into 3 parts , and contains a lot of questions and also humorous answar to those in depth , and also in the last part there is Isha kriya on that and some info on the organization what they are doing and all .I liked the part where he told about the knee doctor and then the mahashri patanjali's definition of yoga . If you want to spend 30-40 mins and argue with your own mind then go for it and feel mind is magic or a circus and is it a ladder or well 😊😉 I loved it .

    My fav quotes (not a review): -Page 11 | "The passion with which you look at your lover or your child, with the same passion, look at the sky, the trees, the earth, or anything. If you have the same passion and involvement with every aspect of your life, the mind is not a misery." -Page 20 | "If you live within the ambit of the body, it knows only survival and procreation, nothing else. There is nothing wrong with that, it is just limited, that is all. The truth is, the physical body has to play onl My fav quotes (not a review): -Page 11 | "The passion with which you look at your lover or your child, with the same passion, look at the sky, the trees, the earth, or anything. If you have the same passion and involvement with every aspect of your life, the mind is not a misery." -Page 20 | "If you live within the ambit of the body, it knows only survival and procreation, nothing else. There is nothing wrong with that, it is just limited, that is all. The truth is, the physical body has to play only that much of a role in your life. But now you are trying to stretch it all over. You will definitely bring suffering to yourself because you are trying to create falsehood." -Page 30 | "Isn’t being alive right now more important for you than thinking? But if I trample upon your thought even a little, you are even willing to die for it. People die for their ideas. People die for their thought. People die for what they believe in. Thought has become far more important than the life process because people have not realized the immensity of what it means to be alive." -Page 31 | "Moments of extreme logic are moments of suicide, please see this. If we think hundred percent logically about life, there is really no reason to live; there is really no reason for you and me to exist here. But if you look at one beautiful moment of your life’s experience, suddenly everything is sparked up and you want to live. The logical aspect of your life and the experiential dimension of your life are diametrically opposite to each other. That is why you are struggling with it. If you look at life experientially, there is every reason to live. If you look at life logically, there is no reason to live." -Page 41 | "When a tiger is born, he does not sit and worry, “How should I become a good tiger? Which God should I worship? What university should I go to?” He has none of these problems. If he just finds enough food, he will become a good tiger. He has no fears and insecurities, “Will I really become a good tiger? What if I end up as a housecat?”" -Page 42 | "If your life was also fixed like a dog or a bird’s life, you would also have lived just eating, sleeping, reproducing, and dying one day. But now, a certain freedom has been given. You can become anything you want. This moment you can become god-like, this moment you can become a brute. Both are possible within you right now. It is this freedom which is causing all the pain and struggle for a human being. Human beings are not suffering their bondage, they are suffering their freedom, and that is the biggest tragedy."

    Nagging, distracting, and often negative thoughts can plague us daily. Sometimes it can be the same thought going around and around in our heads like a broken record. Other times it can be a succession of thoughts, one triggering another like falling dominoes. Either way, when we become aware of it, we see these thoughts have no basis in our present reality and we can become annoyed at their manifestation. Thoughts can even bombard us in our dreams or when we wake up in the middle of the night. H Nagging, distracting, and often negative thoughts can plague us daily.

Has it ever happened to you that you woke in the middle of the night, glanced at the clock and were unable to get back to sleep due to a flood of thoughts pouring out of your head? Thoughts can run amuck when we think about our relationships, things we must do, future plans, what this or that person said, if only I had done or said something different. The possibilities are infinite. Can we ever learn to stop our thoughts? In this book, Sadhguru explains how to gain respite from endless mind chatter.

    This book reminds me of a poem by Rabindranath Tagore: “Life of my life, I shall ever try to keep my body pure, knowing that thy living touch is upon all my limbs I shall ever try to keep all untruths out from my thoughts, knowing that thou art that truth which has kindled the light of reason in my mind. I shall ever try to drive all evils away from my heart and keep my love in flower, knowing that thou hast thy seat in the inmost shrine of my heart. And it shall be my endeavour to reveal these in m This book reminds me of a poem by Rabindranath Tagore: “Life of my life, I shall ever try to keep my body pure, knowing that thy living touch is upon all my limbs I shall ever try to keep all untruths out from my thoughts, knowing that thou art that truth which has kindled the light of reason in my mind. I shall ever try to drive all evils away from my heart and keep my love in flower, knowing that thou hast thy seat in the inmost shrine of my heart. And it shall be my endeavour to reveal these in my actions, knowing it is thy power gives me strength to act.” I always take solace in listening to Sadhguru and recourse to his teachings and experiences every now and then; having listened to Sadhguru, my life becomes extremely agitated whenever I see nonsense flushing around sharing the flawed philosophies and shibboleths. I go berserk sometimes at people, of course not on their face, when they try to play prima donna by switching their ratiocinative minds (and apply their absurd logic), because ipso facto, I know they are nonsense. In this very book, Sadhguru raconteurs how to go “out of mind”; how to cut through anything effortlessly like a knife and at the same time disidentify with everything, so we don’t carry a chip on the shoulder anymore (I used this idiom in the sense, no baggage of past is carried). Sadhguru imparts the wisdom (not sure if wisdom is transferable) that our mind need not be controlled; it needs to be liberated. Unfortunately, people with their ratiocinative minds think that it should be controlled, which is why I called these folks nonsense. Sadguru, in this book, says, moments of extreme logic are moments of suicide; if we think hundred percent logically about life, there is really no reason to live; but if you look at one beautiful moment of your life's experience, suddenly everything is sparked up and you want to live; the logical aspect of life and the experiential dimension of life are diametrically opposite each other. Furthermore, Sadhguru presents a way to distance oneself from both mind and body. To know what it is, better read the book, meanwhile, I try this kriya in the hope that it works!

    The subject is abstract and mystical and no doubt appeals to our curiosity and wonder... but it’s not easy to comprehend and for a novice it’s impossible to believe in the transformative experience of transcending the physical dimension of the body and mind...

It’s not just the additional dimension of spirituality that makes one skeptical, but new ideas like existence of 21 parallel realities confuse our intellect by conflicting responses that simultaneously question the claim and excite the imagination... the idea that we can vividly create any new reality by ‘conscious hallucination’ or imagining it in our mind consciously and infusing it with life energies is simply beyond comprehension - at least at our normal intellect levels - but no doubt filled with interesting possibilities... The last section of the book describes the Isha Kriya - a simple practice that uses breathing to still the mind - and is one of the many variants that can be explored for meditation or mindfulness... the effectiveness will depend on our own journeys and its for us to give ourselves a chance to test for ourselves... to see if we can cease to be our minds and instead free ourselves from its influences, go beyond it’s limitations and learn to use the mind in any way we want - to harness its immense capabilities for our well being and maybe even glimpse the mystical - that which is beyond the minds purview - and start on a new journey of liberation...

    It's a book that talks to you about how everything is inside your mind and what you should do to make it work in your favour and I'm sure most of the self-help books talk like that, but I found this one is a little different. I have heard Sadhguru's speeches and watched some video before reading this book so I knew what I was getting into. This book has some excerpts from interviews, I guess because it has questions that have been asked by people over a period of time and then their answers are It's a book that talks to you about how everything is inside your mind and what you should do to make it work in your favour and I'm sure most of the self-help books talk like that, but I found this one is a little different.

This book has some excerpts from interviews, I guess because it has questions that have been asked by people over a period of time and then their answers are given by Sadhguru. My takeaway from the book was "not to identify myself with the surrounding" in order to stay away from the mess and keep my mind calm for a while. It isn't easy because you need to really think like that and given the circumstances it might feel selfish but sometimes you need to do things for yourself first, in order to help others later. I don't always agree with what he says despite the logical answers given by him because I don't think everything is just black and white as there are grey areas which need to be considered when the time comes. One needs to look at the context before taking any action; that being said, there were many things explained in the book to which I agreed without giving a second thought. Why? because it made sense. Give it a read when you feel heavy, it won't solve your problem but might help you understand yourself better. The problem will be there as it is constant at that moment but once you understand your reaction to it, it might bother you a little less. People who follow Sadhguru might be able to enjoy it even more.

We all can gain an intellect which is far more superior than what we think intellect is which can be obtained with meditation and yoga. One can extend the boundaries of mind and body into the dimensions unexplored. It talks about actions and not contemplation.

    The book is presented in a question-answer format. The questions are asked by anonymous seekers of truth, and the answers are provided by Sadhguru, of course. Though the wisdom contained in the answers might sound familiar from several of Sadhguru's talks available on the Internet, this should not discourage someone curious from going ahead and reading the book. The answers are profound, and every time you read and reflect, you are likely to find subtle new meanings... A gem of a book about the The book is presented in a question-answer format.

    I started this book to get some help to stop the unwanted thoughts hovering in my mind all the time. I will not say this book helped me to do that but yes it's a good read. I did learn some interesting facts from this book. This author mostly talks about the Shambhavi Mudra and insisting indirectly to join their course. I'm sure this course will be helpful to keep the mind stable. The book shares the power of yoga and stable mind.

    I picked up this book to read something outside my favorites genres. This turned out to be quite an interesting read as I have my own perspective towards logical understanding / reasoning, devotion & human intellect & the link between the three. At places I was able to agree with his reasoning but at others I found Sadhguru's opinions completely foreign to my understanding. But ofcourse, it gave me something to reflect upon other than the daily chaos of life. I picked up this book to read something outside my favorites genres.

    Great insights on mind and it’s functionality. We get a deeper understanding on how our thoughts work. Why are we still living on past. It gives a better is insight on living on present. It’s a small book, but with great answers to your questions. Give time on understanding each line of the book, as it has a greater meaning to just a written text.

    CLARITY! The main reason I love this book is because he fundamentally talks about our mind and bases of happiness and misery. It made me realize that how important and powerful our mind is and how well we can manage our mind. It's a definite read if you are looking to transcend and understand your mind.

    Sadhguru's motivation had helped a lot of people and I'm one of them. The way he can answer all the complicated questions of life in the simplest manner and sometimes with humor is what makes him the greatest man living. This book helps in just analysing life and it's a pattern that's already is there in our mind. It helps in opening our pours or gates of the mind.

    This is a great book to understand how we perceive information and how we understand and act on it. A unique way of understanding how mind works and how can we be able to have power over it and use it for our own good, and how can we stop it from harming our thoughts, body and eventually our lives.

    Siddharth Kumar

    To be honest, who am i to "rate" a book based on the discussions with an enlightened being like Sadhguru? It's simply a book that will clear up some basic misconceptions about yourself and your life activity. Pick it up, if you are on the journey towards discovering yourself.

    Good insight into the truth of identifying real self which to us is a combination of a mind and body. This Real-I-Sation is a major lesson that you could use to have a blissful life. l recommend this book to others who are suffering from their past experiences.
