“Only when a human being experiences extended periods of joyfulness and blissfulness, will he stretch himself to the limits and do what he can to the fullest. When he’s in competition, he’s in fear of failure, he will only do a little better than somebody else. So, the human genius is completely missing today.” – Sadhguru
In “Education – Blossoming of a Child”, Sadhguru talks about how competition is the driving force behind education today rather than being a means to enlarge the horizons of human perception. Knowledge is not a problem, but being identified with something is hugely limiting. An adult needs to be as flexible as a child is.
