Salvation by Giving Up Resolves (Will) – 1

The world is not for us. He who does not consider the world as desirable for himself, becomes useful to the world. And he who considers the world as much desirable for himself, he becomes useless to the world. He is no longer useful to the world. Thus if you stay in the house, then stay for the family members, if you stay in the ashram, then stay for the other residents of the ashram, if you stay in an organization, then remain there for the others in the organization, not for your own self. Now, when will we be for them? When we do not hold on to our own “sankalp” (intentions, will, resolves, aim). What is our “sankalp” (resolves)? This should happen, and this should not happen – this is a “sankalp” (resolve, will). I must realize God – this is not a resolve, this is an essential need (for divinity). It is the true purpose and aim of this human birth.

Worldly situations should be such and should not be such; we must gain such and such state. This is called “sankalp” resolves. We have received this human birth, we have not received it for situations. Rather this human body has been received to attain that essence “element”, that is beyond situations and circumstances. The essence that is beyond situations and circumstances is not dependent on any state, or one’s abilities, nor of any extra-ordinary person. It is an entirely independent element “tattva”. To attain that state which is independent, one has to attain it with independence. In this one cannot become dependent. However, resolves (will, aim) can never be entirely independent. We desire sense enjoyments, we desire honor, we desire respect, we desire rest and relaxation, we desire to live, we desire gains – but these are all dependent on something else, they are not independent. In its fulfillment, there will be reliance (dependency), there cannot be freedom (independence) in the least bit.

It is a rule of “resolves” (sankalp) that some resolves are fulfilled and others are not. This is everyone’s experience. The fulfillment or non-fulfillment of “sankalp” resolves is not dependent on us, it is dependent on God’s ordinance. We become proud that we have earned so much wealth, we have so many children and grand-children, we have so many disciples etc. However these all are not dependent on us. If the fulfillment of resolves was in our hands, then no resolves should ever be left unfulfilled, all resolves should be fulfilled. It is God’s ordinance, and it is due to that ordinance alone that these are being fulfilled.

Man’s duty is to honor that ordinance. If he honors what is ordained by God, then he will surely attain salvation. When he accepts God’s ordinance, no one can come in the way of his salvation. There can never be any thing that can be harmful to him. Everything will be beneficial and only beneficial. Therefore have no resolves (will) of your own.
