shadow and from then on becomes involved in the interminable "play" of Illusion.

 

This hankering after play and display, show or tamasha, persists, in one form or another, throughout the soul's journey to Truth. In a child it derives pleasure in playing with toys. As a man, it demonstrates its fondness for play through the enjoyment of sport, drama and adventure. This addiction persists even when man has embarked on the spiritual Path, when he still indulges in his love for "play" and display by exhibiting his supernatural powers in the form of ostentatious miracles.

 

Unless and until man stops seeking escape from his Ultimate Destination by losing himself in the childish play of illusory pleasures, he cannot grasp spirituality seriously. It is time to stop playing with the scintillating toys of Illusion and yearn for the attainment of the One and Only Reality.

 LIBERATION

 

God is Eternally Free.

 

To realize God is to attain liberation from the bondage of illusion.

 

The greater the strife, and the more intensified the struggle to attain liberation, the more the shackles of illusion are felt, as this very action brings greater awareness of the illusion which then becomes all the more impressive and realistic.

 

All actions, whether good or bad, just or unjust, charitable or uncharitable, are responsible for making the bond of illusion firmer and tighter.

 

The goal is to achieve perfect inaction, which does not mean mere inactivity. When the self is absent one achieves inaction in one 's every action, however excessive. Karma Yoga, Dnyan Yoga, and other Yogas can be instrumental in one's achieving the end to all actions by practicing inaction in the midst of intense activity.

 

However, the only way to live a life of absolute inaction is to completely surrender to a Perfect Master, so that one dies to oneself entirely and lives only for the Perfect Master, to act and fulfill the dictates of the Beloved One.

 

My blessings to you all.
