Consciousness welcomes the totality of the situation. By “the totality of the situation” we mean all the elements that comprise the given situation, including your own reactions. Out of this impartial welcoming, in response to the circumstances, understanding arises that may or may not lead to action?. Action that flows from the totality of the situation is right action and will always be beneficial even if, in the short term, it may not appear to be effective. Action that comes from a fragment of the totality, from a separate entity, will subtly perpetuate the suffering it is trying to relieve, even if it appears beneficial in the short term, because it is itself the root cause of that suffering. The body is involved in the world? and although the witness doesn’t participate in action, the body does. Even non-action is a form of action. Cowardice, for instance, is a form of action. That is the lesson that Krishna teaches Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita. As the Self we are the witness, but as the body, we are already involved. So just do your dharma, do what’s right, do what flows from the circumstances. (Perfume of Silence)
