Condensed from Talks by Pujya Guruji Shree Rishi Prabhakarji from RishiVani.
Is our happiness individual or collective?
Can we be happy when another is weeping?
How much do we care for the crying baby, in others?
Can we really add to the collective happiness? Or should we just mind our business, and behave as though others don’t exist?
How far can we go on not including our surroundings? Is the air I breathe come from the next person?
Can I use an A/C when my neighbor cannot sleep at night?
What authority do I have to use all that has come to me by grace or heredity or effort?
Should I self regulate my use of resources to the minimum for me to be of service to my neighbour, or can I use as much as I want for my comfort and existence?
What should I learn to self regulate, so that I am not a pain to my neighbour?
Should I advertise so much that my neighbour cannot exist?
Should Multi Nationals and most of all big Gurus ponder over this question?
‘Non-Doing,’ is a resolution to the above kind of questions; it has no specific answer for doing a thing. It silences you and adds meaning to life.
Non-doing leads to the Spirit of DOING. Spirit is Eternal, DOING is material, it’s transitory like the body. When you are Spirited, Life is Full. ~
