Sadhguru Says

I woke up at insomnia O'clock. After tossing and turning for a bit, I decided to check on Facebook. I had an alert that showed one of my atheist friends mentioned me in a post. I clicked on the post and the comment read, "Marti should check this video" The video was the following:

What is God?- Sandhguru

I watched it three times. I closely considered each point. Sandhguru warmly shared his philosophy on God and creation. He was even quite humorous, but in the end his warmth and smiles led to darkness.

Below was my reply to my friend's comment.

Sadhguru is correct when stating gods are cultural influences.

The Bible commands us in both the Old and New Testaments not to “make” or worship gods and idols.  It is the first of the Ten Commandments, “Thou shalt not have other gods before me“ 
(For your reference if you so desire to read for yourself )

Sadhguru humorously explains how people view who God is to reflect who they are (white, black, brown, woman).

He is correct, people wrongly identify Him.  Truth is, God is Spirit. This article from got explains it better than I could at 4 O’clock in the morning.

Sandhguru says, “Whatever definition you put on yourself is not correct”

Not only is that possibly the most contradicting statement ever made, it is the cruelest thing one person could tell another.  He is essentially saying no one has purpose, no one is sane (we are all delusional), we can’t trust anyone or anything, there are  no absolutes.  Why would anyone of us care what we do in this existence if this were true. Oh, wait….how could it be true when  truth can’t be defined?!

Sandhguru in his conclusion says, “The source of creation, how are you going to put a definition on it? You can not define it, you can not understand it, you can only dissolve in it.”

Sandhguru’s philosophy tells me none of us are important because if we defined ourselves as such, we were wrong. It tells me not to believe who anyone says they are because they are incorrect. This has brought such clarity! Oh my goodness, there is no reason for life, there is no reason to continue living! Not only that I have done my extremely depressed daughter a huge disservice by teaching her the I AM of the Holy Bible was wrong when he said,  For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) When I taught her our God, the I AM loves her and she is the apple of  His eye. (Zechariah 2:8).  I think of all the scriptures I fed into her life….scriptures of love, joy, peace, selflessness, God’s laws…..and SALVATION through Jesus Christ for her sins! What was I thinking?!!  I ‘thought’ I was a good mother, but I was incorrect!!!! I should of let her continue in her incorrect definition of herself…the one that gave her permission to hurt herself.

By Sandhguru’s own admission through his philosopy, he is not a guru and what he is teaching is incorrect.

After careful consideration, I choose to hold fast to what Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”  (John 14:6)  I will follow Him wherever He leads me. I will serve Him and only Him.

If you atheists still think I am delusional for believing in the God of the Bible, so be it. It really shouldn’t matter to you anyways, after all according to your beliefs you are just as uncertain, incorrect, and delusional for your unbelief.


  1. Atheists in the more general meaning is not a world view. It is a simply an unbelief in a god or gods. It is not a bold assertion that there is NO god. By the way, this position opens one up to true spiritual growth. How? This is because beliefs and certainty will always stop one from learning anything new. How can you learn about something if you already assume you know the answer by your belief? In this way, beliefs become limiting. We were born into this world as atheists. We had no beliefs about anything. Through adopting what our culture and family told us to believe is how we began to form particular beliefs. Very few people came to understand "spiritual" things by searching inward. This is because its much easier to accept what we have been told and what appeals to emotions like comforting afterlife promises or fears of hell fire and so forth. But for the people who left the beliefs at the door so to speak and simply went inward to listen to existence within themselves, they all come to the same conclusion. I invite you or anyone to do the same in order to experience truth that can only be know by direct experience.

  2. Hi Electronix, thank you for commenting! I haven't posted on my blog for a few years and I was so excited to receive your message.

    Yes, I agree Atheism is not a world view, but a person who takes this stance views the world through their beliefs. This is true for any belief system. Again, I agree with you that it is a bold assertion there is no God, especially based on the fact than an atheist can't prove there isn't one. It takes much faith to believe something came from nothing.

    I personally do not believe we are born into this world as atheists because atheism requires spiritual and intellectual decisions that a newborn child is incapable of making.

    Though we may be influenced by others it really is a matter of faith to believe one way or the other. We all have the same evidence in the Bible, science, archaeology, geography,astronomy, and history to weigh our decision.

    In response to your invitation I would say, To narrow the mind to complete atheism is not freedom and truth, it is simply choosing to stay secluded and bound in the religion called Self.
