Attainment of Eternal Union – 3
You are always established in Paramatma (God, Supreme Consciousness), whether you comprehend this or not. The extent to which you assume your relationship with the world, to that extent you are turning away from Eternal Union! Besides deceit you will not get anything else. All unions that take place in this world, will end up in separation only –
Sarve kshyaantaa nichyaah patanaantaa samucshryaah|
Sayogaa viprayogaantaa maranantam cha jeevitam || (Valmiki 2/105/16)
“All hoarding ends in laying waste. All worldly progress ends in downfall. Union ends in separation and life ends in death.”
But the eternal union with the Lord (Paramatma) is ever-attained by all of mankind. Being trapped in contact born pleasures, our attention does not go towards the eternal relationship with God. The point is that Eternal Union is never lost, only our attention is not in that direction. Even the most worldly person, the most passionate one, the most sinful one, even the most virtuous one, the most liberated one, the most stupid, or the most learned, whatever he may be, he has never been separated from Eternal Union. He can never ever be separated from That, it is impossible to separate from That. To realize this Eternal Union is the principle of the Gita.
What is meant by attaining Eternal Union? To wipe out the assumed relation with unattained (world) is itself attaining Eternal Union. We have assumed a relation with that which is unattainable (world), therefore we have rejected and faced away from that Eternal Union (Nitya Yog). Eternal Union, is AS-IS at all times. But the union with the world was not there previously, will not remain later on, it can never remain. The union will change to separation / disconnection. You cannot keep union with you at all times and disconnection will never leave you.
If there is a connection with things, then the main thing is their disconnection. If activities take place, then their detachment will be primary. Similarly even a resolve will be parted with. This should happen and this should not happen – this too will also change and come to an end. Only the union with Paramatma will remain eternal. If after the resolve is accomplished, then too union will not remain and if the resolve is incomplete then too union will not remain. You are “Sarvasankalpasannyaasi” swatah siddh hai. In union you begin to take relish, than you naturally take displeasure in the Eternal Union. The Eternal Union is never separated from us, only personal state of displeasure is there in it (turning away from it). When you face towards Eternal Union, then sins of endless births will be destroyed.
“Sanmukh hoyi jeev mohi jabhi |
Janam koti agh naasahin tabhin ||
On facing Eternal Union, how will sins have any way to last? Sins remain only in state of facing away.
