Spontaneous Flowering – In Gita Verse 3.10 In the beginning of creation, the Lord of all creatures sent forth generations of men and demigods, along with sacriﬁces for Viṣṇu, and blessed them by saying, “Be thou happy by this yajña [sacriﬁce] because its performance will bestow upon you everything desirable for living happily and achieving liberation.”
Krishna is saying that when God created whole existence he himself has Scrified his ego, as creator of whole existence. He was playful, spontaneous, we can call it he was Spontaneous Flowering to create the whole existence.
Look in our life when we support or do any action which brings growth for many people how much egoist we become. In my blog Bhagavad Gita Verse 2.8, I wrote regarding Superiority and Inferiority. If we learn how to hold our Superiority and Inferiority, and can give dignity to someone that is the starting point of Spontaneous Flowering. God gave us so much dignity to be part of his existence and in return how we behave with each other.
To function from knowledge, from conclusion, is to be immature. To function from no-knowledge, from no conclusion, from no past, is maturity.
Here let me say something regarding no-knowledge means you have the information regarding the objective world but you are not stuck to that information but you will think that what and how I need to take action in this moment which has nothing to do with your conclusion, judgement, emotion etc. You are getting all the required information from the objective world but your action comes from your subjectivity.
Like Buddha, when he faced Angulimal he had all the information regarding him but action was from his own compassion, so from Angulimal as a Robber and killer he became a mediator, and was initiated by Buddha. Buddha created a meditator from a Robber and killer.
Not only to Buddha but everyone gets such opportunity from the universe to act from our subjectivity. Universe wants us to be like him. But we are stuck in the objective world and didn’t return to our subjectivity for action. Universe itself is present in us as our subjectivity, soul, godliness. Only one thing is required is to be conscious of that subjectivity, take action from that subjectivity even if you have to go against the world, do that but never at the cost of subjectivity act from your objective world.
You have been living, you have experienced many things; you have read, you have listened, you have thought. Now all those conclusions are there. When a certain situation arises. you can function in two ways. You can function through all the accumulated past, according to it – that’s what I mean by functioning through an objective world, through conclusions, through experience, stale, dead – then whatsoever you do your response is not going to be a response, it will be a reaction.
And to be reactionary is to be immature.
Or, if you can function right now, here in this moment, through your consciousness, through your being aware, through your subjectivity, putting aside all that you have known – this is what I call functioning through no-knowledge, this is functioning through innocence. And this is maturity.
Maturity is deep trust in your own consciousness; immaturity is a distrust in your own consciousness. When you distrust your consciousness you trust your knowledge, but that is a substitute and a very poor substitute at that. Try to understand this – it is important.
The moment you become miserly you are closed to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things, you have missed the target – you have missed.
Because things are not the target, you, your innermost being, is the target – not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you; not much money, but a rich you; not many things, but an open being, available to millions of things.
When I say you are immature, I mean you are too concerned with things and you have not yet learned that life consists of consciousness – of beings, not of things.
Things are to be used, they are needed, but don’t start living by them.
Man cannot live by bread alone – once living by bread alone, things alone, you are already dead.
Maturity is always spontaneous. It does not plan, it makes no rehearsals.
God gave us hints that not only God but Human Beings like Buddha, Osho, Kabir, Mira and so many people around us live from their subjectivity. Forget about everyone you, yourself has many times lived from your subjectivity. During the day at least once in a day we live from our subjectivity, but are unconscious regarding it. Live your life with self-alertness, self-awareness and see what happens to you. How much joy you will feel, like a mother with all the pain she is so joyful while giving birth to a child. If you will be able to live from your subjectivity by taking all the pain to drop the ego you will be giving a second birth to yourself. This is libration.
Krishna is saying to Arjuna to fight the war from his subjectivity and you will find yourself, your Godliness. He will become demigods, himself.Tags: Spontaneous Flowering
