This is what Sadhguru begins one of his talks with. He says we are all “born losers”.
Wow, a scathing attack from a spiritual leader, one would think?
But is he wrong?
He proceeds to explain. We are all born losers because the moment we are born, we each begin to lose the most important thing we have: time!
What are we doing with this time? Are we maximising it in our service of others and our quest for the Self? Or are we simply whiling it away, living as egomaniacs and fueling this gross body that will anyway whither away soon?
