THE ULTIMATE TRUTH-PART-4
“ONLY GOD EXISTS AND HE IS THE DOER OF EVERYTHING”
Since only God exists, nothing exists besides Him-and then obviously He is also the Doer of everything.
Since only God exists and He created this universe which itself is the biggest illusion / imagination / nothing-hence everything of this universe, living as well as non-living too are illusion, nothing and immaterial.
Since only God exists-we (our false selves, egos) have no existence just like illusion of snake in the rope, where snake does not exist at all. Since we are nothing / illusion, karmas, sanskaras, seven planes of involution, bondage and liberation are all nothing but illusion.
Since only God exists-all else (universe, earth, sun, stars, living and non-living beings) and everything which we can see and perceive in the world are also nothing but illusion.
Since God is the Doer of everything-everything is predetermined by God and events are just happening like a film show on the screen of time. We are unnecessarily taking the burden of doing by considering ourselves as the doer. This is the cause of our unwanted worries for the incidents happening around us which is beyond our control. Events/happenings are just events/happenings only but we label them as good or bad based on our self-interest, loss and gain, leading to happiness or worries.
Since God is the doer of everything-it is like we are puppets in the hands of God and God is making us to act and dance according to His wish and will and we don’t have any control on our thoughts, words and deeds.
Since God is the doer of everything-the Law of Karma and formation of sanskaras are also nothing/illusion. As soon as we consider ourselves as the doer (karta), the Law of Karma comes into action and the moment we involve ourselves in thinking, speaking and doing, formation of sanskaras begins at gross, subtle and mental levels.
Since the sense of doer-ship (false i, ego) itself is nothing but illusion-the Law of Karma and sanskaras are also nothing/illusion, although they are governed by certain principles and laws just like the moon moves around the earth and the earth moves around the sun and follow certain principles and laws such as the Law of Gravitation.
Since God is everything, we (our false selves) are nothing, illusion-our existence (false self) is illusion like snake in the rope. This misconception of our existence makes us to think that we are somebody; we can do something and can bring results. It also makes us feel that we are different from each other. However, in reality we all are one. We can be compared to the bubbles in the shoreless sea (God) which have false selves (egos) and identify themselves separate from the sea and other bubbles. However, the truth is that all the bubbles are one with the sea and with other bubbles. This false self (ego) having illusory existence, is the hindrance in getting rid of the bondage (Maya) for attaining God- realization. In reality, bondage exits as long as we are under illusion of our false existence.
If we keep this Ultimate Truth in mind, all our worries and problems will vanish. The root cause of all our worries, problems are in fact the result of our false identification with our limited body and mind, thus giving rise to our false self which separates us from others and our Real Self.
