The first half-hour of the interview is about the soil of the earth and its importance. Because he believes we are all connected back to the soil from which we came and that we can only be as healthy as the soil of the Earth, he works in the agricultural field to revitalize topsoil.
From there this notion of soil, Sadhguru expands on his thoughts and tools for elevating consciousness. What can people do to achieve a joyous state of mind?
Yoga gets the lion’s share of the second half of the interview. Sadhguru tells us how real Yoga is practiced and its origins.
The last hour? Extraterrestrial beings.
4:00 Only 45 years of topsoil left in America. Why do farmers have the highest suicide rate? Because of the soil, you would have to eat a ton of oranges today to get the same mineral content as a single orange years ago. Just wild things happening with our soil!
