Sadhguru quotes on relationships

Everyday Application: We think of rich as a monetary qualifier. However, you can’t take money with you when you die, and having money doesn’t mean you are automatically a good person.

We say things. “I’m a loser,” or “I’m stupid.” Chances are you would never say that to your friend!

However, what goes around comes around, and often in ways that you couldn’t imagine.
