When we hear a song, there may be several responses to that same song.
Some will dance, some will sing and yet others will cry. Different reactions, emotions.
It is the same song viewed under different experiences. The same Drama appreciated under different sanskaras.
The Drama is just a song and we give meaning to it.
When we hear the song without gyan in our minds, we cannot recognize the song as a song but rather we see what we have been taught to see, under the vision of our traditions, dogmas and moral codes.
That is what our emotions dictate.
Pain can only see the possibility of being hurt again. Disappointment, can only see darkness. Any experienced of fear can only bring more fear.
It may be easier to unlearn what we have been taught to believe than to heal the emotions brought by the song.
That is our personal journey. To heal the self.
That is the meaning of the Brahmin life.
The Drama is just a song with no lyrics, and when we have gyan in our hearts, we learn to enjoy the song, knowing that it is necessary to forget that song so we can experience it fresh again……and again.
To learn to forget is necessary in life , just as remembrance is in our BK life.
Gyan teaches us to enjoy the song by making the lyrics of it according to what we find in our own selves, for the song and the lyrics are just a reflection of what is going on inside.
We can analyze the tunes, we can just be ironic and say “it is just an eternally repeating song” and kill our own feelings, or we can learn to enjoy the tunes as it plays, in the moment; without rememebring the last played note; now gone, nor looking to hear the violins and the “golden” trumpets of the future when they have not played yet.
The song can be enjoyed only “now” as it unfolds for there is no other time besides “now” when we live life to the fullest.
