The Two Most Important Moments In Life
The two most important moments in life are when one is born and when one finds out why one is born. In Indian thought, the aim of life is to achieve one’s svadharma, our unique inner law and mission; attaining this goal depends on realisation of svabhava, our own true nature. We all have a role to play. It is not so much what we do as what we are. The aim of existence is to live our Truth.
So anyone who lives truly finds the solution to troubled human play. There are many obstructions to be cleared. It is a practice and an art. The Truth is our natural state, it is what we are in essence, but conditioning makes it sometimes very difficult to recover. So much of what we do and what we are is borrowed. Initially, it is difficult to look inside and discern what is true and what is false. Negative influences can easily translate into false habits and erode health. Living truly, on the other hand, provides the key to happiness and total well-being.
Surrendering to it provides ultimate freedom. Ultimately, Truth is inimical to any ill-health although illness can often become a shortcut to this supreme state. It depends how we use it. The Truth is constantly pointing to a greater harmony and higher perfection and so is the cornerstone of all integral health.
As soon as one decides to find and unite with the psychic being, the door starts to open. This is the individual embodiment of the Truth. It is the divine person, the evolving soul, and rather than the superficial nature, it is essentially what makes each one of us unique. It is the personal generator behind our evolution. To open every part of our being to its influence is the work of yoga. Like a seed, this Truth is implanted in every feature of terrestrial existence. The process of evolution is the sprouting and flowering of this seed into its endless forms. Evolution is prolonged alchemy. The process may take many incarnations, but everyone is offered the opportunity to realise Truth in this very life.
If one wants to be whole, Truth needs to be integrated in the entire being; there are no shortcuts. Separation from the soul brings falsehood that will invariably result in disease. Often we might notice the different sides of our nature in friction but when we enquire through the eyes of the soul they become always one, in essence. Truth brings homogeneity and is what makes everything one. When the microcosm is one, it lays a tiny platform for manifestation to become one.
Truly, there is a unique spark within all things, waiting for the right conditions to appear. Right now, the eye of evolution is turning on matter. The body is the crucible of Truth and beneath the inertia awaits its secret divinity. Living truly is the need of the times. Its blossoming upon terrestrial existence is decreed. The Truth is dynamic and governs every process unwinding in the universe. Anything false will one day be obliterated.
When we resonate with the Truth we fulfil our dharma and collaborate with the divine work. We find a way to live in freedom and harmony.
