„The spiritual process is just to create the right kind of chemistry, where you are naturally peaceful, naturally joyous.“

—  Sadhguru 1957
Context: The spiritual process is just to create the right kind of chemistry, where you are naturally peaceful, naturally joyous. When you are joyous by your very own nature, when you don't have to do anything to be happy, then the very dimension of your life, the very way you perceive and express yourself in the world will change. The very way you experience your life will change.
