Distinguish between 'Happening' & 'Doing'
One of the profound wisdom I learned from Swami Shukhbodananda is knowing the difference between 'Doing' & 'Happening'. If I ask you "Are you breathing? Are you digesting your food?". You may answer 'yes' emphatically. I will say, 'you are not' because it is a 'Happening' and not 'doing'. Please think carefully, we are not 'doing' any dam thing to any of the bodily functions. They are all 'happening'. Like wise the planetary motions are 'happening'. Our birth and death both are happening upon which we have no control; our parents are decided by someone else - it is 'happening'
If we very meticulously observe all are 'happening'. Our 'Mudatma' (Deluded ego) thinks we are 'Doing everything'. As Rajneesh once said "We recognize our head only when we have headache" till then all that are happening inside the head is not even noticed. Alas! Wake up and recognize 'We are not doing any dam thing & it's all happening'. Only when we recognize the fact that all are happening, we will identify the supernatural force that is governing all this in this universe and be thankful for its kindness.
Be thankful today you are breathing without a respirator. My Lord please give me this distinction of happening & doing. I am grateful to you. Wish you a great day.
