Sadhguru on World Soil Day


Every time I hear this particularly when I am in United States, I still can’t come to terms with it people calling earth as dirt Dirt is trash. Isn’t it? yes or no? even in America does dirt is trash? no Something that you don’t want but soil Here we call it [Tamil] mother Earth mother earth And When I hear this word dirt it every I’ve heard it a thousand times, but still something cringes in me Once you make the source of your life a commodity Your father mother children wife husband become commodities is not far away. It’s a natural consequence You don’t have to do it anyway. It’ll happen if you make the raw material Dirt the product is bound to be dirt. Isn’t it ? the most Foolish thing that we have done in the name of science is We have reduced everything in the universe Into your commodities in this culture. We don’t see anything as a commodity We see everything as Ingredients of life so this is why food comes? water comes air, the sky, the Sun, the moon a stone, a tree anything Because it’s not something that you can use and drop You cannot use and throw anything in this existence, it passes through it. It is you for a certain period of time after that it becomes something else You are only a rely runner. you are not the runner on the planet Everything goes through you the air that you’re breathing right now the very body that you carry right now It has been millions of bodies in the past It has been an insect an animal a snake a cow a monkey a Human being I’m not talking about evolutionary process. I am talking about the soil going through every form of life So this is not a commodity this is older than you wiser than you far more intelligent than you far more capable than you A far bigger process than you are as a person
