If you stop all of your nonsense, you are spiritual – Sadhguru

Liberation is not my idea; it is the fundamental longing in every form of life.
Spirituality is not something you do. If you stop all of your nonsense, you are spiritual. Spirituality is ultimate sense.
The significance of human nature is that you have the discretion to decide how God should function within you.
There is no such thing as ego; it is empty talk.

The spiritual path has become a struggle only because of this – you have a strong sense of like and dislike, but you are trying to be all inclusive. It is a self defeating process.  Sadhguru
