IS A PARTICULAR SOCIETY NEEDED ? | IWGR II | RAMA राम
|| < : THE TRUTH OF THE WORLD IS YOURS : > ||
Here you are . You breathe into your lungs very little air at a time and yet all the air in the world is yours . Is it not ?
You are heir to all the air in this world .
All the atmosphere is yours , you can breathe the whole atmosphere . The air of India , Japan , China , England and America is Rama's and Rama is you also . The air of the Himalayas with its sweet fragrance is yours .
No one has any proprietary right over air . Similarly , no one has any proprietary right over Truth or knowledge . All the religion of the world , all the Truth of the world is yours .
When you breathe , just reflect upon this thought and feel this idea that as this body is breathing the air of the whole world , so the mind is heir to the Truth of the whole world .
Breathe the Truth of the whole world , gather it from all sources , from Emerson , Whitman and others , from the Upanishads , Gita , and all , they are yours .
Think them to be yours .
When you take up a book to read , look not for the author . Let books come out as the Upanishads , written without the author's name .
The authors of the Upanishads took no credit for giving their ideas to the world . The Greatest works in India , the six systems of Philosophy , contain nowhere the name of the author .
The author does work impartially , devoid of that copyrighting spirit , free from this proprietary self , and full of the spirit of " I am the Truth . "
It is pleasure enough for me to feel " The Truth I am " .
What pleasure there is in , the idea
" I wrote 100 books , I own $5,000,000 " ?
True happiness is brought to me by realizing that
" I am the whole , the Absolute Truth , the Magnificent , indestructible Atman , the Reality " ;
that happiness casts into the shade all your worldly personal joys and pleasures .
So breathe and when you breathe , feel and realize that everything in the world is yours .
Feel that the air of the whole world is yours , that all the beauty and love of the whole world is yours , just as the air is yours passing through the lungs , just as every drop of blood in your veins belongs to every individual cell .
Every individual cell in your body owns every individual drop of blood of the body .
Similarly , when you breathe this thought , realize that all knowledge , power , truth , happiness , all dogmas , all creeds , Krishna , Mohammad , Rama , Jesus , all belong to you .
Count not your contents by what is flowing through you at this instant .
