It takes a yogi and mystic to clarify to you that when you are connected you are actually transcending physicality. That had never occurred to me, and yet, it is true. Listening to a topic being discussed through the senses and thought of another culture brings a profound way of looking at the topic. Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev really does demystify a number of things we are concerned about when he contextualises them as he explains them. We now have communication with others which we choose rather than are compelled to have. It is not really a problem if you are messaging some one in close proximity because it might mean you are being quieter in the way you are communicating. And yes, it is important to value the interactions we have with real people in other spaces because those real life communication spaces may well disappear because of technology. His pragmatism is reassuring in lots of ways because he has thought in a calm and considered way about he implications of technology in our daily lives. How did I come about this video?
