Awaken the Shiva in you

Awaken the Shiva in you

“Knowing does not mean reading books, listening to somebody’s talks or gathering information. Knowing means opening a new vision towards life.”

—Sadhguru

Shiva has always been referred to as Triambaka because he has a third eye. The third eye is the eye of vision. The two physical eyes are just sensory organs. They feed the mind with all kinds of nonsense because what you see is not the truth. You see a person, but you are unable to see the Shiva in him. These two eyes do not really see the truth. So another eye, an eye of deeper penetration, has to be opened. In this tradition, knowing does not mean reading books, listening to somebody’s talks or gathering information. Knowing means opening a new vision towards life. So if true knowing has to happen, your third eye has to open up. If this eye of vision is not opened, if we are limited to just the sensory eye, there is no possibility of Shiva.
