The “Why” Is Not Important – What’s Important Is to Understand Your Freedom FROM the “Why”
Britt: Does Isvara actually have a reason behind creation? I mean, why is it not just awareness? Why maya? Perhaps Isvara does this because he has a sense of humour? If he is an impersonal power, then does he have human qualities? I think Isvara thinks that fun is very important. When we laugh, we are actually sharing (in) God’s joy. And he is in it.
Daniel: I like and totally agree with your view that Isvara is a total jokester! ☺
Ultimately, to/for you, awareness, there is no point in creation. To you, nothing has happened, is happening nor will happen.
There is no right or wrong answer to the “why.” Let’s keep the creation theory as a result of Isvara’s satiric sense of humour.
Besides, the “why” is not important. What’s important is to understand your freedom FROM the why, your freedom from the creation. Understanding your freedom from creation allows you to enjoy it that much more.
I also like what you say about laughing being God’s way of sharing joy. We have a saying among the ShiningWorld family which goes like this: “The fourth guna is the most important.” Ramji termed the fourth guna as laughter. ☺
Once you know your freedom from creation (i.e. freedom from the three gunas), then the fourth guna is revealed: laughter!
Isvara has all qualities but depends on you, awareness, to light them up. What’s important to understand is that you, awareness, remain free from all qualities/Isvara. You are triguna-atita, which means that you are beyond the gunas.
Britt: I am starting to see deeper into this apparent reality. It seems to me that governments in the world are aware of a human beings’ blindness. They take advantage by manipulating us so they can have control.
Daniel: Yes, when ignorance (blindness) is in the driver’s seat, then the ego is nothing but a bundle of manipulation. Only self-knowledge can resolve this.
Britt: It seems like this must be how ego works quite often, deceiving itself and others. Maybe this is why Christ said something like, “the truth will set you free.”
God bless and thank you.
Daniel: Yes, the statement by Christ, “and the truth will set you free,” is referring to self-knowledge, the knowledge of your true nature as non-dual, ever-free awareness.
Laugh plenty, Britt!
~ Much love, Daniel
