There is nothing wrong with your world, it is your thinking yourself to be separate from it that creates disorder.
My Comment: Today there was a really hot sauna here at the Lost Valley Community. It is in a beautiful cob structure, large enough for 12 – 15 persons comfortably. I had 4 cycles of hot sauna and dunking in the nearby stream – ice cold! Delightful. The result is that I am able to present to you these thoughts of Nisargadatta that I have been contemplating for the last few days, but my eyes are not focusing well enough for me to write my thoughts on his thoughts – so here you have his thoughts, pure and simple! May they invite you to explore consciousness…
Nisargadatta: There is nothing wrong with the world. What is wrong is in the way you look at it. It is your own imagination that misleads you. Without imagination there is no world. Your conviction that you are conscious of a world is the world. The world you perceive is made of consciousness; what you call matter is consciousness Itself. You are the space (akash) in which it moves, the time in which it lasts, the love that gives it life. Cut off imagination and attachment and what remains?
Q: The world remains. I remain.
Nisargadatta: Yes. But how different it is when you can see it as it is, not through the screen of desire and fear.
Q: Yes, we see a regular sequence in all life. Who maintains the order? Is there an inner ruler, who lays down laws and enforces order?
Nisargadatta: Everything moves according to its nature. Where is the need of a policeman? Every action creates a reaction, which balances and neutralises the action. Everything happens, but there is a continuous cancelling out, and in the end it is as if nothing happened.
Q: There is a long life behind me and I often wonder whether its many events took place by accident, or there was a plan. Was there a pattern laid down before I was born by which I had to live my life? If yes, who made the plans and who enforced them? Could there be deviations and mistakes? Some say destiny is immutable and every second of life is predetermined; others say that pure accident decides everything.
Nisargadatta: You can have it as you like. You can distinguish in your life a pattern or see merely a chain of accidents. Explanations are meant to please the mind. They need not be true. Reality is indefinable and indescribable.
