These Laws Of Reality Cannot Be Broken

You Exist – You Will Never Not Exist

The fundamental truth of existence is one that transcends time, space, and consciousness. As the Bhagavad Gita states, “For the soul, there is never birth nor death. Nor, having once been, does he ever cease to be. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing, undying and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain.” (Bhagavad Gita 2:20). This profound declaration underscores the eternal nature of our being.

In the teachings of enlightened masters, the permanence of existence is a cornerstone. Ramana Maharshi, a revered sage, explained, “You are awareness. Awareness is another name for you. Since you are awareness there is no need to attain or cultivate it.” This awareness, this existence, is immutable. It does not come and go with the body or the mind; it simply is.

The realization that you will always exist, that there is no place for you in non-existence, brings a sense of peace and purpose. It reminds us that our essence is not tied to the fleeting physical form or the ever-changing mental states. We are the embodiment of existence itself, a truth that remains constant amidst the flux of life.

The One Is The One. The All Is The One.

The concept of unity and oneness is central to many spiritual traditions. In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna reveals, “I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from Me. The wise who perfectly know this engage in My devotional service and worship Me with all their hearts.” (Bhagavad Gita 10:8). This passage highlights the interconnectedness of all existence, where every part is intrinsically linked to the whole.

Lao Tzu, the ancient Taoist sage, taught, “The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao; the name that can be named is not the eternal name. The nameless is the beginning of heaven and earth. The named is the mother of ten thousand things.” This illustrates the idea that the ultimate reality is beyond names and forms, a singular essence that pervades all.

Every piece of existence is both a part of the whole and the whole itself. This paradoxical truth is understood deeply in the mystical traditions. The Upanishads declare, “That which is the subtle essence—in it all that exists has its self. It is the True. It is the Self, and you are it.” (Chandogya Upanishad 6.12.3). Here, the recognition of the self as both a part and the entirety of the divine essence is emphasized.

What You Put Out Is What You Get Back

The law of karma is a fundamental principle that illustrates the cause and effect nature of our actions. The Bhagavad Gita advises, “The self-controlled soul, who moves amongst sense objects, free from either attachment or repulsion, he wins eternal peace.” (Bhagavad Gita 2:64). This highlights the importance of mindful actions and their repercussions.

Buddha stated, “What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.” This reinforces the idea that our intentions and actions shape our reality. What we put out into the world, whether through thoughts, words, or deeds, inevitably returns to us, shaping our experiences and our path.

Everything Changes Except These Laws

While the universe is in a constant state of flux, these three laws remain steadfast. Heraclitus, a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher, famously said, “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” Change is the only constant in the physical world. However, the truths of existence, unity, and karma are unchanging.

As the Bhagavad Gita succinctly puts it, “This material nature is working under My direction, O son of Kunti, and it is producing all moving and unmoving beings. By its rule this manifestation is created and annihilated again and again.” (Bhagavad Gita 9:10). Despite the cyclical nature of creation and destruction, the underlying laws of existence remain eternal.

In conclusion, the laws that govern our existence, our unity with the whole, and the karmic cycle are immutable. They provide a framework within which the dance of life unfolds. Understanding and aligning with these laws can lead to a more harmonious and enlightened life, where we recognize our eternal nature, our interconnectedness, and the power of our actions.
