God Realization is Not through Actions – 1
Pay special attention to the fact that what we call salvation or benediction or God-Realization is self-evident. That is not attained by doing actions. All the things of the world belong to Matter. So they change every moment. There is nothing but change in them. All of them can be acquired by actions.
Whatever means you adopt or whatever efforts you make to experience that essence are proper and approved by the sacred books. But there is an excellent and subtle fact that the essence is self-evident and it is not attained by actions. Pay special attention to this fact. I have got this from saints after numerous years. It has benefited me immensely. Therefore, if you pay attention to it, you will also be benefited a lot.
We accept that God pervades all the time and everywhere. If God pervades all times, then does He not exist now? If not, how can we say that He pervades all the time? This is the first point. The second point is â€” If he pervades everywhere, is He not here? If He is not here, we canâ€™t say that He is everywhere. It means that He exists even now and here. The third point which needs our attention is that God pervades in all the things whether inert or sentient, stationary or moving. Inert means without life, and sentient means with life. There are two kinds of sentient â€” stationary and moving. God pervades in all creatures whether they are meanest or vilest of sinners or ascetics or saints. God pervades completely in the purest and the impurest and even in hell. If He is in all the things and persons, is He not in us? If He is not in us, we canâ€™t say that He pervades in all. The fourth point is that God belongs to all whether they are sages or householders, brothers or sister, belong to a high caste or to a low class. It canâ€™t be said that He belongs to a particular person. God belongs even to the vilest as He belongs to the greatest souls. This is something different that a vile man may not experience Him because of the impurity of his inner sense. But God also belongs to him. God is not partial to anyone; He belongs to all. Even the vilest person has as much right over Him as the greatest soul has. There is no absence of the Supreme Soul (Paramatma). He has not the least partiality with anyone and neither can He have. Therefore He belongs to all. All this proves that if God belongs to all, He is also mine; If He exists in all, He is in me; if He pervades all the time, He is present even now. He remains the same without any change. He canâ€™t be attained by actions. By paying attention to these four points the fact is proved that the Supreme Soul is ever attained.
