What can we allow and what must we fight for? When does one absorb the wrath of thy suffering shadow and when does one become a retributive sacred mirror? For Love can be seen as to be cruel, as even in its cruelty it would be kind. Krishna is driving Arjuna’s chariot. A war chariot. On the field of Dharma.
Love and Strife are interconnected. In Love one finds Strife and in Striving one finds Love. Attachment to lust of result is blinding. Anger from a desire to deny the Ground of Being is not Love. Neither either is Love found in the desire to deny the Destruction that brings Creation. For in this too is one supplicating one’s Will and focusing on the fruits of action – not the actions in themselves.
The world as we would hope it to be, is not Now. It is not, As It Is. The world As It Is – is in every way Perfect. So as Arjuna, we must choose. But to make that choice we should not focus on one or other aspect of the Dance of Creation-Destruction. But on the Whole and Terrible Truth.
“I wish to understand You, the primal Being, because I do not know Your mission.
The Supreme Lord said: I am become death, the mighty destroyer of the worlds, out to destroy. Even without your participation all the warriors standing arrayed in the opposing armies shall cease to exist.
Therefore, get up and attain glory. Conquer your enemies and enjoy a prosperous kingdom. All these (warriors) have already been destroyed by Me. You are only an instrument, O Arjuna.” – Bhagavad Gita
Rejecting Dharma is sin. Rejecting True Will is sin.
“You must be indifferent to the fruits of your actions,” he told Arjuna. “You have a right to the deeds, never to the fruits. If you can perform your deeds but are holy indifferent to the results of your actions, you will not build up any karma […] Fight because you are a warrior, but don’t mind what happens or who wins. On action alone be thy interest, never on its fruits.” – Bhagavad Gita
This is the Way of Liberation. Liberation from All Suffering. This is Love.
When one feels as though one would proclaim: I do not want this. Stop. Realise the Truth.
Thou art That.
