Sai Ram Friends,
We always think that thinker is separate from the thought. It is not so.
Before understanding this fact one has to understand mind and it’s working. Thoughts are always generated by the mind. This mind projects everything,conceivable or inconceivable. Mind projects the whole world with the sole purpose of experiencing it. Therefore mind is always starved for experiences.But mind can survive in duality only and for that thought is it’s most potent tool. How it works? This is the trick of mind that it forces the being to choose. Once we understand this mechanism of mind,we will be able to get away from the clutches of thought. Whenever we chose or try to chose,we are in fact trying to change “WHAT IS”. In life it is important not to try to change.
I am not trying to say that one should not strive for betterment,but one has to understand and accept limitation of effort. These choices are in the realm of psychology. We have to understand that whenever we are trying to change the sensations of happiness,or sorrow we are bringing thought into the action. There should be total surrender to “WHAT IS”. But please understand it is not inaction. I have to bring Gita into all this. When Gita says that do your work but do not think about the result,it simply says to accept what is,but it does not say that don’t act.
Choice-less awareness is not non-action,rather it is action with full wisdom.
With warm regards
Ever yours in Baba’s grace
