So many bodies, so many opinions! But my Beloved, though invisible, is in all these bodies.
There is no life at all without the Beloved; the Self lives as each and every one.
What, then, 0 friend, are you searching for like a fool?
The object of your quest is within you, as the oil is in the sesame seed.
As the pupil is in the eye, so is the Lord in the body;
The deluded do not know Him, and search for Him without.
The lock of error shuts the gate; open it with the key of Love.
By opening the door, you shall wake the Beloved.
Kabir says: 0 brother, do not pass by such good fortune as this!
– Sant Kabir
A man who is averse from harming even the wind, knows the sorrow of all things living. He who knows what is bad for himself, knows what is bad for others, and he who knows what is bad for others, knows what is bad for himself. This reciprocity should always be borne in mind. Those whose minds are at peace and who are free from passions, do not desire to live [at the expense of others]. He who understands the nature of sin against wind, is called a true sage who understands karma.
– Angas (Jain Quote)
It is true we are not bound and that the real Self has no bondage. It is true that you will eventually go back to your source. But meanwhile, if you commit sins, as you call them, you will have to face the consequences of such sins. You cannot escape them. If a man beats you, then, can you say, `I am free, I am not bound by these beatings and I don’t feel any pain. Let him beat on’? If you can feel like that, you can go on doing what you like. What is the use of merely saying with your lips ‘I am free’?
