We, Humanity, need physical security. To live, we need the security of food, cloth, shelter and some basic needs. So we seek them by earning for our life. But why we run for a security which is created in ‘psych’? Shall we inquire about this?
We can clearly see that, we couldn’t see the beauty of ‘what-is’ and so we create a psychological security. Because the ‘what-is’ always changing (not permanent) and so we couldn’t understand it and feel it’s beauty. We fear of this ever-changing reality (even after we become millionaire, we fear what if this name/money gets lost/stolen). And through this ‘psychological security’, we believe that, something in this physical world can bring us permanent blissful state, so we run for some materials/people, but we get bored of it, we couldn’t get the permanent bliss and it’s a fact. That’s why K says, there is no psychological security at all. If we pay attention to it, whenever there a desire arises, we can be choice-lessly aware of it, and so the desire ends. But is it really happening that way?. Not at all. Even if we aware (there is no such security), the mind keeps on dragging us to those instant pleasures.
Okay, now let’s go into an interesting thing. Every time, there is a need for psychological security within us, and we focus it on some physical materials/people. Why we seek physically is, it is an attainable thing.
So, what if we seek psychological security in the unattainable one? Here the unattainable thing is nothing but what K says as ‘love’. K says ‘love’ is not an attainable thing and if we say we love everything, it is not actually love.
(I’m not speaking about when there is sufferings, it is even after when we see this suffering and end it, a desire/thought/lust keeps on arising, so here I speak only after we got rid of sufferings)
K says there is no psychological security in physical activity/material/person/universe, but what if there is “psychological security psychologically”?. I don’t know whether K tried this, but whenever thought as a desire comes, to grab a material/people for psychological security, what if we turn those desire to the ‘unattainable’ one?. I tried it first, the experience is unimaginable, and I tried it many times when lust/desire/thought arises, I felt a beauty in it, and it is not pleasure and there is no struggle in those - as nothing can be attained. There is no suffering at all, as nothing is attained to be lost.
We don’t know what is acting behind the nature, who makes this Big Bang or Big bounce, why universe keeps on expanding, why life comes and goes, why mountains,sees,trees look beautiful, we don’t know whether only our thoughts makes this happen, we don’t know we are really living in a simulation and if we are - we don’t know we ourselves created this universe/water/fire/land/air, we don’t know who made this air come in and go out, we don’t know how this organs are created, we don’t know how these sperm and egg carry every bodily cells and knowledge, we don’t know why our body is created as a decaying thing - but one thing is sure, if there is one behind this nature (here ‘one’ may be ‘eternal consciousness’ or may be gross/subtle) - then that ‘one’ is something beyond imagination and that ‘one’s beauty is everlasting and non-perishable. (Here ‘we’ includes every living being)
Now, here is another interesting thing, is this running for the ‘love’, the ‘unattainable’ one - is the actual devotion?. K had inquired within and found there is no devotion at all. But before accepting that “there is no other way or there is no devotion at all” - we should try it on our own like K did. If not, we may blindly accept what he said without any inquiry. We don’t know whether he tried all ways. We don’t know whether he tried everything seriously and wholeheartedly. So, we have to do it on our own seriously and only then we can see it as it is. Or else we may caught in a belief that “there is no devotion or way at all”.
In religious sects, they/we pray ‘I need this/that, I need to get out of this pain/sufferings/circus’, but do they/we meditate/pray that “I need you, could you take me with you, can I serve and remember you for my whole life, will you merge within me, or can I always be merged within you”.
Does this makes sense or it looks non-sense?
