Sadhguru answers a question on what should be the foremost quality of a spiritual seeker.
Question: Sadhguru, what should be the foremost quality of a seeker?
Sadhguru: If you are a genuine seeker, that’s all that is needed. If your seeking is the only quality you have, that is definitely the most important thing. Most of the seekers are only off-and-on seekers. In 24 hours, how many of you are even conscious of your seeking, and how many moments?
“No, no, I have done so many programmes. I even did 55 days of Hata Yoga.” What you did yesterday is not the point. This happened to Charles M Schwab. Schwab became one of the big steel magnates on the planet at one time. Before he stood on his own feet, he was working for Andrew Carnegie, another great entrepreneur. One day, he sent a telegram to Carnegie, saying, “Yesterday, we broke all the records.” So immediately, Carnegie sent back a message, “But what are you doing today?”
If you are a past seeker, we are just neighbours. If you are a seeker now, I have something to do with you right now.
