Difference Between Spirituality And Religion ? – Sadhguru at United Nations


If you say unreligious you naturally
identify yourself as a believer belief means you are assuming something that
you do not know but I do not know it’s a tremendous possibility only if you see I
do not know the longing to know the seeking to know and the possibility of
knowing becomes a living reality now what is the all the problem in this
world one man’s belief versus another man’s belief religious or otherwise religion often are often misunderstood
at all levels how could you explain the difference and
the overlap in easy-to-understand terms spirituality and religion religion see
if you say on religious you naturally identify yourself as a believer isn’t it
hello that you believe something whatever that is what is belief let’s
look at this something that you do not know you
assume and if 10 of us assume that this is my religion if larger numbers happen
it becomes a big religion but essentially belief means you are
assuming something that you do not know or fundamentally you are not willing to
admit I do not know but I do not know it’s a tremendous possibility only if
you see I do not know the longing to know the seeking to know and the
possibility of knowing becomes a living reality everything I do not know I
believe now what is the all the problem in this world one man’s belief versus
another man’s belief religious or otherwise yes if you saw that you do not
know would you have a reason to fight with anybody so if you saw you do not
know what do you do the nature of human intelligence is such it cannot simply
sit here with I do not know it will seek when you become a seeker a spiritual
somebody was on the spiritual path always refers to himself as a seeker the
qualification to become a seeker is you have realized that you do not know yes
you know that you do not know once you know that you do not know seeking is not
an option it is the nature of the human intelligence once you really see I do
not know the nature of my existence sitting standing sleeping your
intelligence will seek you don’t have to go and seek some we’re seeking does not
mean you join a group if you simply bring this home to you that I really do
not know think about this life I’m asking you do you really know do you
know where you come from and where you go hello you don’t know no you can’t
bullshit yourself I came from heaven I’m going back to heaven if you are so sure
that you’re going back to heaven why don’t you go today I’m saying those who are dead sure about
it or doing such things isn’t it hello if you knew that you are going to your
better place than here why don’t you go this is the greatest crime upon humanity
that we told people there is a better place than this this is a crime because
this is not allowing human beings to live their life to their full depth and
dimension because they think the real life is elsewhere now do you have any
proof that you are not already in heaven and making a mess out of it do you have
any proof if you understand if you pay enough
attention to life if you see on the surface this is a leaf this is a flower
this is this this is that everything we know but you feel pay enough attention
you don’t know think you really don’t know think not even about your own
existence isn’t it when this really comes home to you that I do not know
you’re a natural seeker you don’t have to join any group you don’t have to
follow anybody in you’re a natural seeker in whichever way your
intelligence can seek it will start seeking in every possible way it will
seek because this is the nature of human intelligence seeking is not a choice you
can stop seeking simply because you make up something and you believe it if you
don’t believe or disbelieve anything you simply pay attention to everything you
will become a seeker because it is only human attention which opens the doors of
this universe without a penetrating attention
nothing will open for you but once you believe you don’t have to pay attention
to anything because you know it you know everything how it happened on how it’s
going to end he’s already ended thank you so much

  1. His first mistake is his misunderstanding of belief. He says having a belief means believing in something we do not know such as with religion. This is a huge assumption he is making. Most bornagain Christians like myself have a personal, one on one relationship with Christ that comes not from belief but from a knowing! He then goes on to state that we believers refuse to admit we do not know. Again, he assumes we do not know. We do know!

  2. The word belief means you dont know. Otherwise you would say I know and not say I believe. Paul says in the bible that faith means you don't need evidence. When you have facts/evidence ,you don't need faith/belief.
