Fearlessness in giving and sharing...

Fearlessness in giving and sharing.

Just like the sun. Ceaselessly, indiscriminately, unconditionally, inexhaustibly giving and providing the element of fire to support the existence of everything in this solar system.

Just like the sun, perform all our actions, give and love without intention, without attachment, without discrimination, without expectation, and have no fear towards certain spiritual/cultural thinking and belief about absorbing other beings' "negative or bad energy", or losing our own "positive and good energy" being "stolen" by other beings, which is nothing to do with the teachings of yoga, where everyone is responsible for their own cause and effect, where nobody can interfere with other people's energy.

The light illuminates from (you) which (you) think (you) are sharing and giving to other beings, isn't coming from (you), nor does it belongs to (you). (You) gain nothing nor lose anything by sharing the light, or compassion, or wisdom that illuminates (yourself) with (other beings). As there is no (you).

Without identification, without egoism, without separateness, without intention, without attachment, without expectation, without discrimination, without selfish desire of accumulating friendship, connection, liking, love, support, appreciation, or interaction in return, there is no gain or loss, there is no fear.

Without the other elements of water, wind, earth and ether, the element of fire alone doesn't support anything to be existing, and hence, what is there to be so proud and arrogant for being existing for others to be existing, or to be able to serve oneself and others?

The selfless sun doesn't need gratefulness, thankfulness, agreement or appreciation from anyone or anything for it to be giving and sharing ceaselessly. Performing its duty and responsibility without identification or attachment. No matter how much it shares and gives to all and everything, its illumination is inexhaustible, or being contaminated by its actions or the result of the actions. The illumination of the sun will be depleted in its own cause eventually, but not because it has been giving to others.

Egoism generates individual identification with certain qualities of names and forms, and thus generates separateness from those who/which possess different qualities of names and forms from itself. Separateness gives rise to duality, and thus generates the perception and discrimination of good and bad, positive and negative, happiness and unhappiness, pleasure and suffering, gain and loss, praise and condemn. From duality, the ego generates craving and aversion towards what it likes and dislikes, wants and doesn't wants, agreements and disagreements. Restlessness, dissatisfaction and fear arise from all these plays of the ego.

Free from egoism doesn't mean that there are no more actions being performed, but all actions that are free from egoism are not different from inaction, just like the sun illuminates the solar system selflessly, intentionlessly, that is free from the bondage of Karma.

Actions - egoism (identification, separateness, intention, attachment, discrimination, expectation, desires, craving, aversion) = Selfless actions = Inaction = Compassion = Fearlessness

Om shanti.

About Yoga

Know thyself. Everything is impermanent and selfless. There is no 'I'. There is no 'I am selfless'/'I am not selfless'. There is no 'I am hurt'/'I need to be healed from hurt'. Non-blind believing, non-blind following, non-blind practicing and non-blind propagating, but be open-minded to inquire the truth of everything. Be free. Be peaceful. Be happy.
