Question: They say that only upon divine call, people are able to visit Kailash. Why is this divine call only showered upon a few select people?
Sadhguru: The Divine doesn’t choose. The Divine is just calling. Only some people hear it – that is all. That is so with everything in the universe: Some people don’t hear. Some people hear and ignore it. Some people hear and respond.
There are no chosen ones in the world. The Divine is equally involved with an ant, an elephant, a tree, a bird, a man, a woman, a rock, a plant–with everything. Do you think the Divine is less involved in making an ant than in making you? Have you ever paid close attention to an ant and seen how fantastic a creation it is? If you see an ant, you will crush it. If you see an elephant, you will run.
Whether your life is mundane or magical, simply depends on whether you consciously respond to all that is being done to you free of cost, or whether you are ignorant of those things because you are too full of yourself to respond to the Divine.
