Inquire the root cause of separateness and discrimination

In many different society, community and nationality with different ethnics and cultures in the world, there’s something in common that everyone think and believe as something good and right, “You must be grateful to your own family, tribe, culture, community and country, and you must give back to your own people and protect your own people from any external threat/intimidation/invasion/hostility.”

Human beings are being brought up in such way at home, at school, at work, in the community and country, for how they think and what they believe as good and bad, right and wrong, positive and negative, should and shouldn’t, appropriate and inappropriate, being trained to be ‘loyal’, ‘patriotic’ and ‘caring’ for their own people/family/ethnicity/tribe/culture/community/country.

There it goes and expands, separateness and discrimination exist everywhere in the world, even in those who think and believe that they are going against ‘discrimination’ and fighting for ‘non-discrimination’.

As even the identification of “We are citizen/human beings of the world. The entire world is our home, and we shouldn’t discriminate one another in the world”, is not free from the idea of “We need to be grateful to our own beings. We must give back to our own beings and protect our own beings and our home” that generates separateness and discrimination towards ‘non-citizen/human beings of the world’, or ‘outsiders’, or ‘foreigners’, or ‘aliens’, as there are countless worlds in countless universes.

Those who truly know what is the source of ‘discrimination’ and ‘non-discrimination’, there’s no need to go against ‘discrimination’ or fight for ‘non-discrimination’, as ‘discrimination’ doesn’t exist in those who are free from any sort of identification, and ‘non-discrimination’ doesn’t exist upon the absence of ‘discrimination’.

Everyone without ‘any identification with any names and forms’ can be contributing or giving back to the world, and can be kind and compassionate and helpful towards anyone without any ‘discrimination’ towards anyone under different names and forms, without the idea of “I need to be grateful to give back to my own people/beings and protect my own people/beings.” Unfortunately, not many minds can truly understand this.

It’s common reaction that most people would get offended upon coming in contact with this teaching, and categorized this kind of teaching as ‘bad’, ‘wrong’, or even ‘dangerous/threatening’ towards what they think and believe as ‘we, us and ours’, of their own particular family, ethnicity, tribe, culture, community, or country, as they feel threatened by such teaching that they think would ‘destroy’ their ‘bubble’ of ‘a strong family/ethnicity/tribe/culture/community/country, where they believe it’s essential to have ‘strong identification as one of us’, ‘loyalty’, ‘patriotism’ or ‘caring for our own people/beings’ in order to protect one another within that family/ethnicity/tribe/culture/community/country from any ‘external’ threat/intimidation/invasion/hostility from ‘outsiders’, ‘foreigners’, ‘aliens’, or ‘those who are not one of us.’

If people really want the world to evolve or progress ‘healthily’, people need to free their own minds from ignorance and egoism, and see the truth of the root cause of all ‘humanity problems’ in the world.

It’s okay if many people don’t like to hear this, and the world continues to evolve as it is, under the influence of ignorance and egoism. In less than 150 years or so, all kinds of people existing now, regardless of whether under the influence of ignorance and egoism, or not, whether people think and believe themselves are good or not good enough, selfish or unselfish, contributing to good or bad happenings, will all be gone. Although the left behind damages derived from ignorance and egoism might last a little longer in the world for the next generations to deal with. Just like now, we all are dealing with the damages derived from ignorance and egoism that left behind from the previous generations.

Live in the present, respect the world and life as it is

“Live in the present, respect the world and life as it is, free from craving and aversion, all this is impermanent and it’s not ‘I’.”

Being free from attachment and identification with the selfless function and condition of the physical body and the thinking mind, as well as all the mind perception of names and forms of pleasant/unpleasant life experiences with all kinds of desirable/undesirable relationship with beings and objects, being undetermined by actions and the fruit of actions, respecting the law of nature of cause and effect, transcending the duality of good and bad, positive and negative, right and wrong, happiness and unhappiness, meaningfulness and meaninglessness, success and failure, achievement and non-achievement, praise and condemn, and absence of worldly passionate desire or expectation towards everything to be or not to be in certain way.

The disturbed/hurting mind is being disturbed/hurt by itself being ignorant towards itself. Restlessly being disturbed/determined by the desire of craving and aversion towards past experiences and future anticipation.

Know thyself and be free.

Huge amount of different kinds of yoga and meditation practice, teaching and sharing is nothing, if the mind doesn’t work on freeing itself from ignorance and egoism, being determined by the mind perception of a worldly life existence with egoistic attachment, identification, desire of craving and aversion and expectation towards the world and life to be or not to be in certain way.

Some people don’t practice yoga or meditation and don’t relate themselves with spirituality or humanity activism, but they are liberated minds being free from ignorance and egoism, performing actions selflessly in discreet without attachment and identification or expectation towards the actions and the fruit of actions, respecting the law of cause and effect, without desire/intention/ambition to change the world and life to be or not to be in certain way, respecting the world and life as it is.

The basic humanity of thoughtfulness and self-initiative to look after things

The prerequisite for someone to be fit to learn and practice yoga even before the four means of Viveka, Vairagya, Mumukshutva and Shat-sampat to qualify someone as a Sadhaka, is about some basic humanity of thoughtfulness and self-initiative to look after things, whether the things belong to oneself, or don’t belong to oneself, and maintaining tidiness and cleanliness of the surrounding environment out of free-will and self-initiative, whether it’s a personal space or a public space, even when nobody is obliged to perform such thoughtful selfless actions, or even when one has to pay some fees to be staying at a particular accommodation, to be at a particular place, for a particular reason.

Those who aren’t aware of this very basic of humanity, especially money minded people who believe in “I’ll get 2 cents back for every 1 cent that I’ve paid,” they are unfit to learn and practice yoga, even if they have a strong and flexible physical body to perform many of the yoga asana poses nicely in perfect alignment, or they have attended many ‘yoga courses’ and attained many ‘Internationally recognized yoga certifications’.

Let go the ego

The ego constantly expects or looks for acceptance, love, care, kindness, support, recognition, approval, acknowledgement, attention, companionship, friendship, interaction, cooperation, encouragement, appreciation, praise and compliment, or anything that make the ego feels good, confident, proud and meaningful about itself from other people, or the family/group that it thinks it belongs to, or the society, or the world.

This ego will hurt itself and/or others if it doesn’t get what it’s looking for, thinking and believing that all its unhappiness, disappointment, dissatisfaction, frustration, anger and hurt are caused by other people’s bad and wrong behavior, or unkind, uncaring, unloving and unsupportive reaction and treatment, or inappreciation, or criticism, or unfriendliness, or selfishness, and so on.

Let go this ego. Be free from all these ‘unnecessary’ attachment, longing, clinging, expectation, craving and aversion.

The mind that is free from the ego doesn’t need acceptance, love, support, recognition, approval, acknowledgement, attention, companionship, friendship, interaction, cooperation, encouragement, appreciation, praise and compliment from anyone, or family/group, or the society, or the world, to feel good, confident, proud or meaningful. The mind is free as it is, peaceful as it is.

No one can free other people’s minds from the ego. It has to come from within willingly and determinedly to let go the ego, the root cause of all ‘suffering’ and ‘problems’ of humanity.

No one is obliged to be kind, caring and loving to one another. Allow everyone to show love, care and kindness, or not. It’s the attachment and expectation towards the worldly thinking and idea about “Human should be like this or like that, and shouldn’t be like this or like that” that generates great disappointment in us towards what we think is ‘bad’, ‘wrong’, or ‘inhumanity’. But what we think is ‘bad’, ‘wrong’, or ‘inhumanity’ has no power to disappoint anyone. Be free.

The ego is also the one who wants to feel being ‘wanted’ or ‘needed’ by others, that there are people want me or need me, that ‘I’ am good enough, that ‘I’ am able to give love and care or inspiration and motivation to others, which give a sense of pride and meaningfulness to itself. Otherwise, the ego will feel bad and meaningless about itself, thinking and feeling that it is unneeded or unwanted by others, that it is not good enough, that no body wants or needs love and care or inspiration and motivation from it.

Once the mind is free from the ego, one can love and care for others unconditionally, without identification and attachment towards the action of giving love and care to others and the result of the action. There’s no expectation that people should be grateful and appreciative, or should show us love and care in return. One doesn’t need other people’s love and care and appreciation to feel loved, worthy or meaningful. One doesn’t need to feel loved, worthy or meaningful, at all. There’s no fear of being unloved, unworthiness or meaninglessness. One does good to others, and loves and cares for others not because it will make ‘me’ feel good about ‘myself’ or expecting to receive love and care in return. And that is liberation.

Be kind, but don’t expect other people also be kind.

Be loving, but don’t expect other people also be loving.

Do good and don’t do bad, but don’t expect other people also do good and don’t do bad.

Drive with attentiveness and following the rules, but don’t expect other drivers also drive with attentiveness and following the same rules.

Love and peace to all.

Love and peace to all – Never give up

Never give in to ignorance, fear, violence, anger and hatred.
Whenever our minds have doubts and losing hopes amidst all kinds of ignorance and impurities,
choose love and peace.
It won’t go wrong.
Have love and peace in oneself
amidst all kinds of ignorance, fear, violence, anger and hatred.
Don’t become one of them.


Humanity alone doesn’t free us from unhappiness or suffering. Without realization of the truth of selflessness, or attributelessness, namelessness and formlessness, humanity is also one of the many qualities of names and forms that binds us to unhappiness and suffering.

Just by identify ourselves as human beings and attach to the thinking and belief about – As “human beings”, we all should behave like how “proper”, or “normal”, or “good” human beings should behave… is also part of the play of ignorance and egoism, and is what generating separateness, discrimination, prejudice, disappointment, dissatisfaction, anger, hatred, superiority and inferiority, craving and aversion, fear and worry, where all these defilements are the cause of disharmony, restlessness or suffering in oneself and in the society.

This doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t have humanity in the society, or we don’t have to be “good” human beings. We do our best, perform all our duties and responsibilities, but be free from ignorance, egoism, identification, attachment, judgment, comparison and expectation towards oneself and others that we all as “human beings” must comply to what we think and believe what humanity is. Then the real unconditional “humanity” that is beyond all the qualities of names and forms will shine in oneself and in the society. There’s no difference or separateness between human beings and non-human beings, or between “good” human beings and “bad” human beings.

Only through this realization, the society can be free from anger and hatred, or have peace and harmony, starting from oneself.

It’s the same as in a family, or in a community, or in any relationships, or in a corporate work place, or in any organizations. Egoism is the root cause of disharmony and inefficiency in all fields. And the vanish of egoism is the underlying criteria for harmony and efficiency in any fields.

Om shanti.
