Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Clarice Lispector, miracle, life, understanding, false society, and beauty

excerpted from THE WAY OF WONDER: a return to the mystery of ourselves, by Jack Haas




“I do not understand. That phrase is so overwhelming that it transcends any understanding. Our understanding is always limited. But not to understand can be without frontiers. I feel myself much more complete when I do not understand.

Not to understand, in the sense I mean, is a gift.”

Clarice Lispector



The ability to receive the givenness of the miracle of life is the gift; life remains the same event either way- whether we see it as a burden or a blessing- it is simply our reception which determines which side of the coin we are on.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj offers his opinion, observing: “What is the use of truth, goodness, harmony, beauty? They are their own goal. They manifest spontaneously and effortlessly, when things are left to themselves, are not interfered with, not shunned, or wanted, or conceptualized, but just experienced in full awareness. [This] awareness...does not make use of things and people- it fulfills them. ...I follow no rules nor lay down rules. I flow with life- faithfully and irresistibly. ...Just live your life as it comes, but alertly, watchfully, allowing everything to happen as it happens, doing the natural things the natural way, suffering, rejoicing- as life brings. ...You agree to be guided from within and life becomes a journey into the unknown.”

            We do not need to try and solve anything. It is only our false thinking that leads to a false society, which leads to false lives, which leads to false problems. So the attempt to find a solution remains in the false loop and cannot ever succeed to liberate us.
