Sadhguru explains that the only reason we do not realize that the “hand of the Divine” is upon us is because it is “on” all the time. Every individual has to be conscious of it, so that they know the joy of being in Grace. He looks at how Grace is not meant to fulfill your plan, it is about fulfilling life’s plan for you.
Sadhguru: That’s not a small question. (Laughs) Have you noticed many times if you’re in a hotel lobby, there is a background music going on and after sometime you do not know that there is music going on? Unless you want to make a conversation and you find it interferes with it or something like that – otherwise it’s on all the time and you do not notice it. Being in America, some machine is buzzing all the time in your house, but you do not know that it’s buzzing. Only when you enter the house you will know it, after some time you do not know it. So almost anything which is there with you all the time, you tend to not know it. That’s the only reason why you do not know the hand of the Divine upon you, because it’s always on. If it was off and on, if… You do not even know that your breath is on. If it goes off for a minute, for sure you know. (Laughs) So because it’s not at all off, that’s the reason why you do not know. But what is the problem if something is on all the time, what is the problem not knowing?
Not knowing that you’re alive, what is the problem? You will just miss life, that’s all. The joy of being in grace will be lost. Still life will be happening, but the joy of being in grace is completely lost upon you. So it is not something that’s on and off. It is not something that every weekend you question whether it is on or off. It’s just on. You just have to, you know, become conscious of it so that you know the joy of being in grace.
When I say to know the joy of being in grace, you must understand this… (Laughs) You must keep this to yourself, Prasad, others just block your ears for a moment. (Laughs) The thing is I have said this in many ways, but people… I am sure most of you have chosen to ignore it. I have said, “Once you sit with me even for a moment, then there is no such thing as privacy in your life.” So the moment you sat with me, particularly initiated by me, after that there is no such thing as whether it is on or not – it is on all the time. It is just that you are expecting grace just to fulfill your plans. Most people are only expecting grace to fulfill their plans, because this is the old habit of going to the temple, church or mosque and telling God what he must do. (Laughs) If he does not do, you will change your God. So this is the old habit.
