O’ Great Teacher! All through our lives we are constantly caught in the battle of right and wrong, then where does this all end? Please give me the final understanding.
The Teacher looked resplendent in the aura of divine light as he began his conclusive response in this series of conversations on Self-knowledge and Mastery. “My Child! Know that this world is a big stage on which the drama of life is played. This drama is played in perpetuity. There is no end to the drama only the actors keep changing with the scenes.
The characters make entries and exits as per roles allotted by the Director called God or Universal Consciousness. All the actors are personally created by the Director and after their role is over they go back and become one with the Director.
The scenes are created for the growth and evolution of each character in the Drama of Life. Good and bad, right and wrong, light and dark, etc are the polarities created within which the actors have to perform on stage. Both the Right and Wrong belong to the same One! These are the twins of the same creator.
The drama appears so realistic that the actors end up getting attached to their roles, likes, dislikes, etc. They start judging and criticizing other fellow actors forgetting that they too are playing a role allotted by the same Director.
This act of creating personal stakes and observing differences with others, binds the actor in a never ending series of actions, responses and consequences. As such the drama continues and the actors keep coming back again and again in new costumes to perform in the next scenes.
The final act for an actor happens only when the actor realizes that life is not real but a mere drama played on a great Stage and the fellow actors are none other than the reflection of the same Self. The final scene begins when one becomes aware that good and bad, right and wrong, attachments and disdain are shackles that entrap.
So my dearest, Life just IS. Be aware of the illusory nature of the world. Be a witness in the drama of life and play your part without taking sides or seeking results. This is the final understanding of the Self.”
Thank you O’Teacher for your selfless sharing and guiding me on this path of light. In Gratitude I remain to thee forever. I understand completely that;
All is ONE. Diversity is an illusion.
The One is formless and goes by many names.
The essence of One is more important than its names.
The essence of One is Love.
Real love can be experienced by serving others.
Love All and Serve All, is the final scene in this great Drama.
Love, Light and Gratitude,
