Questioner: My question to you is
– I personally feel that I function more efficiently in the night
than I do in the day. Sadhguru: Oh! Oh! Questioner:It’s not that I have changed
my biological clock or something and I sleep during the day. But it’s just that I feel more productive
not only while studying but otherwise. I feel invigorated in the night. So why is it so? Thank you! Sadhguru: Maybe you’re in the wrong country. There are three types of people
who do not sleep in the night. A rogi will not sleep in the night. A rogi means a sick person
because he cannot sleep. A bhogi will not sleep in the night. A pleasure seeker will not sleep in the night
because night is conducive for him, for his kind of business. A yogi also will not sleep in the night
because for him also night is very conducive. Which one are you? You can decide,
I don’t want to say anything about it. Why night is,
see light – we value light because
our visual apparatus are made in a certain way. What light does to you is,
it makes everything distinct. See now, because it is lit
I can see this person, this person, this person, this person, this person. Suppose lights went off
and this became dark I just see a mass of people. I don’t see this person, this person, this
person. So there is a certain sense of
lack of boundaries in the night so for yoga, for sexuality,
for friendship, for being together, for study, for focus, for all these things
– night seems to be more conducive because the difference between
what is you and what is the other, comes down in the night,
simply because our visual apparatus function like this –
where there is no light, everything merges in our experience. So a yogi, a bhogi and a rogi
– all three of them make use of the night. You can also make use of it. There is no problem
unless you are sleeping in the classroom. If you are not sleeping in the classroom,
it’s fine. Nothing wrong with it. But you will see,
you try this and see, can I share something? I was made like this. If I sleep in the morning
normally my school used to be 8:30 in the morning. From 6:45
my mother and my sisters will start waking me up. It’s a series of efforts. Many things,
they will make me sit up in the bed. They will come and twist my arm
and do this and this. My mother will do it gently. My sisters will do that. Then they will drag me
and my mother will put toothpaste on the toothbrush and give it to me. I’ll stick it in my mouth and phoo. She’ll get me my clothes and say,
“Go and have shower. It’s time up, time up.” I go inside the bathroom and fall asleep. If nobody wakes me up,
till 1’o clock, 2’o clock in the afternoon, I’ll just sleep like a rock. Not wake up and roll around. Simply dead. But I started practicing yoga
at the age of twelve. In about,
maybe eight to nine months after that no matter where I am, even till this day
where I am, which time zone I am, every day I am in a different time zone
but at 3:35, 3:40 I just come awake. Because some changes happen in the nature
at that time, my body just comes awake. If I want I can get up and do what I want,
if I don’t want I can sleep some more. But it always comes awake. So you have to bring
some sensitivity into the system that, See you are a product of this planet. Yes or no? Whatever nonsense
individuals may think about themselves, we are all just a pop-up from this planet. You have seen those pop-ups on the computer
screen. Pop, pop, yes? You’re just a pop-up. You’ll be gone. You can’t believe you will be gone. “Hah, me? I will be gone?” Yes, all the very smart people,
countless number of people who walked this planet before
you and me, where the hell are they, hmm? Not a sign. All became topsoil, isn’t it so? Weren’t they popups? Aren’t you a popup? Poop, poop. You may think you have a great life
and this and that. As far as the earth is concerned
it’s just recycling its soil. Just throws you up and draws you back,
throws you up and draws you back. So in this little popup,
the important thing and the most important thing is,
you create sensitivity within you, such sensitivity that
every dimension of life comes into your experience. Before you fall dead,
is it not important you experience this life
in this fullest possible scale. Yes or no? Experience means people think
we must party every day. No, no. Same damn thing how many times you’ll do? There is much more for the human life to explore. You must become sensitive. When I say sensitive
because the word sensitive is used in a wrong way,
in the sense – when people say,
“Oh, she is very sensitive”, we are supposed to understand,
she will get hurt for just about anything, yes? No. Being sensitive to life and being ego-sensitive
are two different things. Being sensitive to life means
if you walk into this hall you experience everything that’s here. You don’t miss a thing. If you walk outside,
you don’t miss a thing. Every dimension of life should come into your
experience. This happened. Shankaran Pillai bought a work… He bought a work donkey
and the man who was selling the donkey said, “See, this is a very sensitive donkey. You cannot beat this donkey. You cannot use bad words,
you cannot abuse this donkey.” Shankaran Pillai said, “That’s great! Every day I am tired of beating these donkeys
and abusing every day, I have to use filthy words
to get these donkeys moving. I like a sensitive donkey
and he paid little extra bonus for the sensitivity of the donkey
and took it home. He left it in his in the barn and
tomorrow morning he has to go to work. He went there and told the donkey,
“Please let’s go.” No response. He said, “Please, let us go”. Nothing. He went down on his knees and prayed, nothing. You are not supposed to abuse it,
you are not supposed to beat it. Not knowing what to do,
he went back to the man who sold the donkey. “See I requested,
I pleaded, I prayed, he is not responding. What am I supposed to do?” That man said, “Is that so? Let me see.” And he came. He picked up a thick stick like this,
one whack on the head, then he threw the stick and said “Come.” The donkey followed. Shankaran Pillai got furious,
“You idiot, you said it’s a sensitive donkey. And the way you hit this animal
I have never hit a animal like this in my life.” He said, “No, no, no. He’s very sensitive,
first you have to get his attention.” So developing sensitivity means
if you simply close your eyes, you must know
what phase of moon it is right now. Because all this is playing in your body. Every day it is playing in your system. Do you see if it’s a full moon or a new
moon, the entire ocean is coming up? There are tides, isn’t it? You’ve been to the ocean side or you don’t? You do? There are tides, yes. The whole ocean is trying to rise. Seventy-two percent of your body is water. You think nothing is rising? It is. For every position of the sun,
moon and many things that are happening to the planet,
they are happening to you. You must become life sensitive. Then you will know
how to manage every aspect of your life. Don’t become ego sensitive. Don’t become society sensitive. Life sensitive, if you become,
what’s happening this with this life if you know this one thing all the time,
you will see you got your GPS on. There is really no problem,
you will never get lost. It doesn’t matter who says what,
what kind of situations you are put into, you are never ever lost
because you are life sensitive. This is all this life needs
that this has to become life sensitive. Right now
we have developed a psychological structure which has got nothing to do with life. It’s got something to do with the social
scene, got nothing to do with the life.
