be free, be happy, be peaceful

May all find the teacher within to guide oneself towards unconditional love and peace

Contribution to the society begins with the realization of unconditional love and peace in oneself...

When one realizes the truth of names and forms, and has gone beyond all the qualities of names and forms, realizes unconditional love and peace in oneself, naturally, one radiates love and peace into the world, without intention, desire, identification, attachment, prejudice or discrimination.

Just by being oneself as it is, have love and peace in oneself, have self-awareness and self-control, being free from ignorance and egoism of attachment, identification, desires of craving and aversion, judgment and expectation, and impurities of pride, arrogance, anger, hatred, greed, jealousy, fear, worry, dissatisfaction, disappointment, feelings of hurt and guilt, violence, agitation, depression, offensiveness, defensiveness, prejudice, discrimination and etc, is the greatest contribution to the society.

One won't be intentionally generate ill-thinking, ill-will, actions or speech that will promote unpeacefulness and disharmony in oneself and in others (human beings and non-human beings) who are sharing this space of the universe.

Whether one is able to be physically performing actions that will bring different types of selfless contribution to the society or not, it is something that will happen naturally as it is. It isn't necessarily that contribution towards the society must be involving certain physical action or interaction under particular name and form.

One who is free from ignorance and egoism is free from egoistic intention to be doing good or bad. Just like the elements of fire, water, wind, earth and ether. There's no desire or intention to benefit anyone, or to destroy anything, and yet, everything exists and stop existing influenced by these elements.

If we think we are good enough only when we are performing some actions or can have the opportunity to do something that we think is 'contribution' to the society, and we are not good enough when we are not performing some actions or can't have the opportunity to do something that we think is 'contribution' to the society, then we are not free from ignorance yet. Although by having such thinking will motivate us to be performing certain actions or to do something that will bring benefits to the society, but that is nothing to do with the realization of the truth and be free from ignorance and egoism.

We can be performing none, or a little, or a lot of 'selfless actions' in this world, but it's free from egoistic intention, attachment, identification, desires, judgment or expectation towards all these actions and inactions and the fruit of actions and inactions. It doesn't make us 'good' or 'bad'. It doesn't determine us to be 'happy' or 'unhappy', to feel 'meaningful' or 'meaningless'.

Be free.

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.
