Let’s Play
Posted by on Sep 30, 2013 in BLOG

In three steps, let’s play. First, a quote I believe says it all about what Life means and how it works, second, some commentary to explain the unexplainable, and third, your comments of what it all means to you. With all of us working on it, we might just experience the unexplainable. Ready?

First the quote:

“Jnani [a Being of Knowledge] understands a situation fully and knows at once what needs be done. That is all. The rest happens by itself, and to a large extent unconsciously. The jnani’s identity with all that is, is so complete, that as he responds to the universe, so does the universe respond to him. He is supremely confident that once a situation has been cognized, events will move in adequate response. The ordinary man is personally concerned, he counts his risks and chances, while the jnani remains aloof, sure that all will happen as it must; and it does not matter much what happens, for ultimately the return to balance and harmony is inevitable. – Nisargadatta Maharaj

Second, the quote, with commentary:

“Jnani [a Being of Knowledge] understands a situation (event, circumstance) fully and knows at once what needs be done (no action is taken; there is simply a knowing of what is necessary). That is all. The rest happens by itself, and to a large extent unconsciously (by Universal Awareness of Being). The jnani’s identity with all that is, is so complete, that as he responds to the universe, so does the universe respond to him (the jnani Understands he and the Universe are One). He is supremely confident that once a situation has been cognized, events will move in adequate response (the Universe rearranges itself to accommodate one’s picture of reality}. The ordinary man is personally concerned, he counts his risks and chances,(he calculates and tries to figure out how to make what is needed happen) while the jnani remains aloof, sure that all will happen as it must (ultimate faith/trust/knowing); and it does not matter much what happens (the jnani doesn’t care, in a positive way), for ultimately the return to balance and harmony is inevitable (just as the jnani perceived).” – Nisargadatta Maharaj

Third, your turn …

I look forward to your contributions!
