The Busy Little Doer Gal Expires
Karuna: Dear Ramji, it’s been a while since I wrote. I completely trust all is well with you!
The busy little doer gal has been very busy seeing if there wasn’t something else to DO, that she’s in control of, in terms of spiritual practice (no dating scene, thank goodness). Also, getting clearer on having pure intentions. Burden of proof and all that.
Well, she saw, no, there isn’t anything that she, the experiencing entity, reflected self, could do. She had a really good look around, and then, satisfied, but with a headache, she just expired.
It was like in those old Looney Tunes cartoons where the accordion is furiously pushing and pulling, but kind of doesn’t want to let go, but meanwhile is preparing for the inevitable last exhale, the last hurrah!
I am perfectly satisfied, whole and complete, knowing that I am the non-experiencing witness-self, the one that knows itself appearing as an object within self, the experiencing witness. I have known this for quite some time, but tended to dismiss it, probably because it is just so simple. Just didn’t have enough meat or drama for the doer to sink its teeth into, I guess!
Ramji: I am so happy for you, Karuna. I remember where this all started with a letter about relationships. Yes, enlightenment is such a simple undramatic non-event – one’s confidence in one’s wholeness just reaches a tipping point and the desire to experience or know anything else disappears into the background, giving rise to the bliss of non-duality – that it does not jibe with the masturbatory fantasies of cosmic orgasms that spiritual literature – read: spiritual porn – presents to hungry seekers as the highest state.
Karuna: I’ll continue doing what presents to be done, seeing what actions are necessary and which aren’t, and offering it all up to self. Managing likes and dislikes and practicing triguna yoga, which you explain so well. And let’s not forget the fourth guna, humor!
Ramji: Jai guna #4!
Karuna: Meanwhile, I will just continue with karma yoga attitude and discriminating, so that I may be completely free from reliance on the chasing and attainment of objects for my well-being, as well as free from identifying with me, the experiencing entity, knowing this is not necessary when knowing the self as the self.
Ramji: Very wise, Karuna. Very wise indeed. But then, what else is there to do?
Karuna: I was also very recently reflecting on how fortunate I was to meet you and experience Ramji’s essence when that opportunity arose, and didn’t even have to travel very far at that! (Especially since it is apparent that you will be doing less traveling for satsangs in the near future.)
Ramji: Yes, it seems our lifestyle will change within the year. We are shopping for homes on the internet now.
Karuna: It is a rock-steady, unwavering essence that many times functions as a go-to benchmark for me, if that makes sense.
Ramji: Yes, indeed. You deserve this good fortune, Karuna. You have been dedicated and persistent, and now you know beyond a shadow of a doubt who you are. You are blessed indeed!
~ Much love, Ramji and Sundari
