INNER ENGINEERING — A Yogi’s Guide to Joy

Sadhguru, Jaggi Vasudev, in his book ” Inner Engineering ” explains that it is only by turning inward that we can truly create a world of love, light and laughter. You cannot transform the world without transforming the individual. Inner Engineering is your own software for joy and well being.

It is said that if you can remain blissful for twenty four hours, your intellectual capabilities can be almost doubled. Technology bring comfort and convenience to us, not well being.

We need to understand that unless we do the right things, the right things will not happen to us. This is true not just of the outside world, but also the inside.

If your thought and your emotion are of your making you can mold them any way you like. There is a technology for inner well-being.-for creating a chemical basis for a blissful existence. This is one dimension of what Sadhguru call ” inner engineering”.

If you are aware, you can activate your system in such a way that simply breathing is an enormous pleasure. All it takes is a willingness to pay a little attention to the inner mechanism.

You have surely noticed that when you are happy, you always function better. You seem to have an endless supply of energy. You can go on and on, even without eating or sleeping.

Just a little happiness liberates you from your normal limitations of energy and capability. The simple process of paying a little bit of attention to your inner nature will transform the quality of your life in remarkable ways.

Joy is a rare visitor in most of people’s lives. The intention of this book has been to make it your life long companion. Once joy is your constant companion, you are no more an issue in your life. After that, life is a journey of endlessly unfolding celebration and discovery. If you can look at everything lovingly, the whole world becomes beautiful in your experience.
