The question of “my fortune” or “making my own effort,” usually comes up in souls who have thought a bit about the concept of predestination.
Question: If everything is predestined, how is it possible then to be “my effort?” that is the million rupees question! 🙂
Then the “typical” politically correct answers will say something like:” You don’t know what you did in the last cycle, so you have to make effort.” But then we hear something like: “What Baba can do, if that is in the child’s fortune!”
Then, my favor politically correct answer, arrives: “It is your responsibility/effort before something happens. After that something has happened, then it is Drama/predestination.”
Sounds good huh? 🙂
At the same time, that answer proves that what is truly important is not the “before” or “after,” but the “NOW.”
Neither what happened yesterday nor my golden age status, but “now.”
Now that we have a better handle on duality, then we can understand something else; we can really grasp the concepts of “being and non-being.”
Those words weren’t my invention. Quantum physics talks about it as well as some scriptures.
Since predestination (Drama) is the opposite of “Free will,” /”my effort.” Then… we can see that both concepts are complementary of each other, just like day and night. That is duality….
So… it is “my effort” or it is “my fortune”?
Both at the same time… 🙂
Any rational, logical analysts out there who cannot understand that concept of “unity of opposites”?
Of course, all this rationality is just to display the illusion of “power of words.” In reality those concepts are just a description… just information… words… their utility resides in making us “think.” 🙂 and keep the mind busy with knowledge…
The experience of living life is beyond those things. That is why the key is to experience the “being,” the self first… so then, we are ready for “non-being.” 🙂
Wait a minute… Baba hasn’t mentioned those words… that is your Buddhist, Taoist, Sufi, New Age “manmat”! 🙂
Being is the awareness of our existence. The physical world. Non-being is the soul world. Seet? 🙂
Spirituality is beyond religions…
