Acting without actions: Part-1

November 6, 2018

An action, when performed via the agency of the mind, is always egocentric. Identification with the mind and its structures is the cause of ignorance that one action is good and other is bad, one is service and other is an selfish act. Anyhow, service is a practice that can free a mind trapped in such delusions. Via service, the ownership or identity shifts from an individual, to the whole. This is essentially the path of action. Other techniques are donation and forgiving. In this part, we will get an overview of actions and how they are seen from the point of view of the Self and the ego.
