Chennai (Madras), India, 26 Jul. 2001
Kriya (working without taking credit, functioning without assuming importance, bearing yet not possessing, leading yet not dominating, understanding without intellect interfering) is the primal virtue. When virtue vanishes, then morality manifests. And great pretence is promoted by the society with its acquisitive and accumulative values of mind and the ego. Renounce this morality and give up sainthood. And it will be hundred times better for everyone. If you tell a lie or two, society calls you a lier. But if you lie ceaselessly, society makes you the President or Prime Minister of your country. You are a murderer to be hanged when you kill one by chance or through confusion. But you are a hero to be honoured when you drop an atom bomb with a cool calculation to kill in millions. In case of small thefts, you are a thief. But you are, of course, a successful businessman when you steal in abundance. This is social morality perpetuated by the mind.
Renounce Profit. Temper desire. Cast off selfishness. And bandits and thieves will disappear.
Intelligence has energy (Prakriti) – the spirit of the mother, the valley. Mother never fails, valley never falls.
Kriya is not striving. It is flowing like water; feeding life, not formulating mental concepts. Kriya means no fantasy, therefore no fight. Kriya means no beliefs, therefore no blame. Kriya means no wealth & no power and hence no disaster will follow. Kriya means being unimportant so that nobody can disgrace you.
You (disembodied intelligence-energy) are never born. You can never die. Petty intellectual-brutal force is born and dies with the body. You are not body, you are not mind and its mischiefs. Give up all borrowed knowledge and put an end to all troubles.
Don’t have much and thus don’t be confused.
This is the Paravastha (after-state poise) of Kriya.
