IN/OF/AS THE BREATH OF
SILENT LIFE FORCE
ONLY THE GREAT NOTHING REMAINS
TO ANIMATE LIFE IN FORM
A STATE OF GRACE BEYOND THE TELLING
EXPRESSING AS BAUBO
SUDDENLY AND SEEMINGLY "OUT OF NOWHERE"

and operating through the intellect.
Devotion means to allow the grace of the existence to flow through you,
intellect means to divide everything into a million pieces
and believe you have understood.
If we see that everything is beyond our understanding,
whether a leaf, an ant or an atom,
it would be natural to bow down.
Full Article & all Sadhguru quotes below from:
you understand this body, this brain, this one (Referring to oneself)
can do only this much, but there is something here
which is much larger than this one (Referring to oneself).
If you understand this, you will not make more and more out of yourself.
You will make less and less out of yourself.
When you become nothing, you’re naturally devout.
Devotion means you allow the Existence to flow through you,
you allow the Grace of the Existence to flow through you.
Intellect means you will divide everything into a million pieces
and you believe you have understood.
Once you identify yourself with your intellect,
immediately devotion looks like a stupid thing.
Of course lot of devotees are stupid,
or lot of stupid people claim they are devotees (Laughs).
Lot of idiots on the planet, who are full of fear, claim they are devotees.
Stupidity is not devotion.
Devotion is a different dimension of intelligence
which has understood that intellect is a limited instrument,
with this you cannot grasp the world.
you will clearly realize with this you can survive,
with this you can look smart in a tea party,
with this you can make money,
with this you can find a job,
but with this you cannot grasp the Existence.
It doesn’t take long to understand this.
If you understand this, then you will naturally bow down
and become a devotee.
It’s not an act,
it is absence of your rubbish,
is essentially to break the limitations of a certain concretization
that happens which we call “personality.”
To evolve from being a person to a presence.
If you are a person, that means you have made a shell out of yourself.
You formed a shell, within that shell only you can operate.
If you break this shell,
you will no more be a person but simply a presence – as life is, as God is,
just a presence.
If it can be encased in a shell, it becomes a person.
Yoga means you are slowly working on making the shell thinner and thinner,
more and more porous,
that one day you can exist without a shell.
All Sadhguru quotes above from:
the pure Clear Light
from which everything in the universe comes,
to which everything in the universe returns;
the original nature of your own mind…
Let go into the Clear Light,
trust it, merge with it.
It is your own true nature,
it is home.
- The Tibetan Book of the Dead
SHARED HERE BY MIRIAM LOUISA
the loss of her precious daughter to the king of the Underworld,
she wandered the world letting all vegetation die
until her daughter would be returned to her.
When she arrived at the site of Eleusis she was the guest of King Celeus
whose daughter - Iambe - tried to cheer her up.
Together with an old woman named Baubo
they sang obscene songs in Iambic meter and told lewd jokes.
At the pivotal moment in the joke-telling
Baubo lifted her skirts and exposed her belly and vulva
at which point the goddess laughed,
relieving the tension of her loss momentarily.
In this act Baubo is seen as cunctipotent,
an ancient word describing the demonstration of female generative power.
Baubo's significance in the myth is to encourage Demeter to return to her own center of being and remind her who she is.
especially erotic life,
and who existed from the beginning of time.
From below excellent and detailed article re: Baubo and other "shameless goddesses".
for more details re: CUNCTIPOTENT BAUBO
But young Persephone was not to be found.
The long, frantic, endless search of her beloved daughter
had begun for the goddess Demeter.
She asked everywhere if anyone had seen her daughter,
she went through every corner and every crack in the ground.
Not finding her daughter, she went mad with rage,
she wept, shouted, she begged for mercy,
she asked that she was herself (Demeter) killed:
but all was in vain.
There was no chance for her to find her beloved daughter.
Due to the fact that the goddess Demeter was also the mistress of fertility,
she then decided to seek vengeance, and thus she cursed all the plains,
all the fertile ground of the Earth, yelling her unhappiness:
"Die! Die! Die!"
And the curses worked no child could be born, and moreover,
not a single wheat ear would grow
and not a single loaf of bread could be baked.
Flowers didn't grow and not a single live twig
could be found to honor the departed.
Due to the curses of the goddess Demeter,
life on Earth was perishing.
The Earth was barren;
the bosoms of women were dry and had nothing to give.
Demeter stood still in the same place.
Her clothes were muddy, her hair ravished.
Still, even if there was great pain in her heart, she did not give up.
After countless searches with no result,
she ended up falling down next to a well,
in a village where no one knew her.
While leaning her stiff body against a cold stone,
a strange woman approached her.
That woman was completely naked
and she approached Demeter dancing,
moving her hips sensuously,
in a manner resembling the act of lovemaking.
She was also obscenely moving her breasts, her thighs and arms.
When Demeter saw her, she almost couldn't refrain herself
and a smile arose on her face.
In fact, that woman who made the goddess Demeter smile,
was actually a magical and humorous creature,
in her own way, because she had no head,
and her eyes were where her nipples should have been.
And her vulva with her enormous labia and a huge clitoris
were her nose and mouth.
Thus, through that unimaginable mouth,
that magical creature began entertaining
and delighting the goddess Demeter,
telling her several completely shameless erotic pleasantries.
First Demeter smiled,
then she started laughing and in the end
she couldn't help herself and her strong and deep laughter
sprouted from her abdominal area.
Thus, the two women, the shameless goddess of the YONI,
Baubo and the strong goddess of earth fertility,
the mother Demeter ended up laughing out loud in unison.
This celebration of laughter
that the goddess Demeter had lived through the help of the goddess Baubo
took her out of that acute state of depression
in which she indulged herself and gave her back the energy
for continuing the search for her daughter.
With the aid of the goddess Baubo,
the old Hecate and the god Helios, the Sun,
the search of the goddess Demeter were eventually successful.
The young and beautiful Persephone was brought before her mother,
and the earth and the womb of all women were no longer barren.
They became fertile once more.
