Audio from "If We Create A Conscious Planet, All Life Will Thrive | Sadhguru" Podcast
"In pursuit of happiness, we have ripped the planet apart.
But still, we are not any happier than what people were a hundred years ago or a thousand years ago.
It is time to stop and look… because all human experience happens within us, not outside of us.
Through both joy and misery can happen only within us, in pursuit of human happiness; how much damage we have caused on this planet?!
This time, when this virus has made us come to a standstill, it is time to consider how we pursue human happiness..."

"Is it always in everythingbigger that we do, more and more and more? Or to enhance human capacity to experience life?
Because of enhancing human ability to experience life in a more profound, joyful, and wonderful way - we are seeing how to fix the world so that something may come out of it.
But as economies grow.
As [the] human footprint on the planet becomes larger and larger - human beings are not moving towards any higher level of happiness.
Only frustrations and miseries are growing.
So... this is a good time to address this. If we want to address human experience, it can only be addressed from within!"
"External arrangements are to a point of convenience and comfort.
If we handle this in a conscious manner... if we create a consciousplanet, then we can see that not only human populations - every other life also - cannot only survive, but thrive on this planet.
Because this planet is made in such a way that we are all so interconnected...
There is no way any one species can survive and thrive ignoring the others. So this is a mistake we have done.
We must understand... only by maintaining the complex biodiversity of this land can we thrive."

Audio From "The Power of Being Alone | Sadhguru" Podcast
"When Guatama, The Buddha was asked "Is it better to walk alone or in company?" He said, "It's better to walk alone than to walk with a fool."
Well, that's him - not me. He was quite sure that only a fool would walk with you. So he said it's better to walk alone than to walkwith a fool.
Certain law in the country says when you want to do a short and quick journey, walk alone. When you want to do a long journey, walk in company.
But the important thing is - Who is walking with you? Not always being together is a good thing!"
