Sadhguru explains how a partnership with him works, by recounting a beautiful story about Shiva and a devotee.
A long time ago, Shiva came to do partnership with me. I said, “Fifty-fifty.” He said, “Okay.” Then I decided, “No, no, you take hundred percent, including me.” So He did. Now I ride on His shoulders.
There is a beautiful story in the yogic lore. On a certain day, a man was walking through the Himalayas. It was a very hard journey, and anyone would want to seek help. He said, “Oh Shiva, I can’t do this, just come help me. At least hold my hand, take me along.”
Shiva appeared and said, “You walk. I’ll walk with you.”
“How do I know you are walking with me?” the devotee asked.
This is a simple device to breach the boundaries of who you are, so that something far bigger than you becomes a part of you and your life.
