Attainment of Eternal Union
All objects in this world are coming and going. In other words, there is union and separation taking place in everything. Activities begin which is the union of various actions and activities come to an end, which is the separation of actions. Similarly “resolves” (intentions) also have a union and a separation. When resolves arise, union takes place and when resolves come to an end, then separation takes place. Hence union and separation is with things, with actions and with mental expressions.
If you think about both, union and separation then it will be perceived that union is temporary and separation is permanent. This is a main point that needs to be understood. Just like our meeting has taken place right now, this coming together has happened, and soon when we part ways, then separation will take place. After meeting, the parting will surely happen, but after parting it is not a rule that one will meet. Therefore separation is permanent. There was separation before the meeting and after the meeting when you part ways then also there is separation. Therefore separation remained constant. Just like a man remained a millionaire for 50 years. After being a millionaire for one year, out of the 50 years, one year was reduced. There was parting of one year. Therefore even at time of union, there is separation.
All pleasures that come from union are all cause for grief, in other words, it is sorrow producing – “Ye hi sansparshjaa bhogaa dukhyonaya eva te” (Gita 5/22). Hence, it is only in union that there is sorrow. In separation there is no sorrow. The joy in separation (severing relation with the world) is infinite, it is immeasurable. This joy never parts because it is eternal. When even in union there is disconnection, and in separation also there is disconnection, then disconnection (separation) only has been constant. This constant disconnection itself is called “yoga” (union). Gita says –
“Tam vidyadukhasanyogviyotam yoga sanjitam” (Gita 6/23) i.e. where there is total disconnection from the association of sorrow, that is called Yoga. Hence the disconnection from the world is perpetual, and union with Paramatma is eternal.
