I recently gave you a piece from the Agni Yoga series about national karma and the karma of leaders. Here’s another gem illustrating what’s important and what’s not.
Here's a small piece from Fiery World - Book 1, written in 1933:
581. A mother told her son about a great saint, "Even the grain of sand beneath his foot becomes great." It came to pass that this saint passed through the village. The boy followed his footsteps, took up a pinch of dust therefrom, sewed it in a bag and wore it around his neck. And as he recited his lessons in school, he always held this relic in his hand. The boy was filled thereby with such inspiration that his answers were always remarkable.
One day when leaving the school his teacher praised him and asked what he always held in his hand. The boy replied, "Earth from beneath the feet of the saint who passed through our village." The teacher commented, "This hallowed earth serves you better than gold."
A neighboring shopkeeper, hearing this, said to himself, "What a stupid boy to take only a pinch of this golden earth! I will await the passing of the holy man and collect all the earth from where he trod. Thus I can obtain the most profitable merchandise."
And the shopkeeper waited in vain for the coming of the saint. But he never came. Greed is not akin to the Fiery World.
When we do not clutch, we allow inspiration to come into our lives. Life is about first learning to possess as if you possess nothing, then learning to possess “in the name of the All.”
