The importance of Responsibilities in life....

“Master! What exactly is a responsibility attached to an individual in his / her life as he / she starts living in this world out of his / her own freedom?”

“Dear! A responsibility attached to an individual comes into effect as he / she starts living his / her life expecting a benefit from the world either of physical or psychological in nature….. That is why the Great Saints were never attached with the worldly responsibilities as these Great Men were ever dis-interested anything that was worldly! 

But we, as normal individuals existing at various levels of evolution towards the Ultimate, definitely do have with us the well defined responsibilities to be discharged in the world as we are interested in the world and expect certain returns from the world….That way alone all our responsibilities are defined in our life….

These responsibilities with an individual can broadly be categorized as THREE TYPES…..

1. Law bound responsibilities
2. Social or Moral responsibilities and 
3. Ethical responsibilities 

Law bound responsibilities are a must to be discharged in life as per the Law of the Land. Social or Moral responsibilities are better be discharged in the interest of greater peace around but taking care that the law is respected all the while. Ethical responsibilities are the ones the individual takes upon himself / herself on his / her own and discharges them in the interest of the community around so that he / she is freed in this life from the burden of own attachments to a greater extent…

So the ultimate guidelines in respect of discharging these responsibilities are….

A must in respect of the First
Desirable in respect of the Second without sacrificing the First and
Good to do in respect of the third provided the individual does not copy here someone / something but does out of his / her own depth of perception of Truth!

The Truth known to me is only to be lived through the Maximum!

“Master! Can I reveal the Truth known to me to people around as the Great Men in this direction have done this even though the Spiritual Discipline strictly restricts the same saying that 'Truth is a Secret' and unless the recipient is elevated to the level of  receiving it, revealing of the same does more harm than good.  I am confused here!”

“Dear! What the Scriptures say is one hundred percent correct and what the Great Saints had done also is true as the Understanding of Truth and Revealing the same to the world happened with these Great Personalities when the concept of ‘Mine’ was almost 'Nil' in Them….Such Instances are perfectly in tune with Mother Nature's Requirement....

And we, the normal individuals are far, far away from this scenario.... 
We are living this mundane life at the back of our own desires experiencing the related pleasures and pains in the process of expressing these desires….  

The Truth known to me at this moment is more precisely called the 'Relative Truth'.... If this is revealed to the world out of an enthusiasm in me to educate the next man, that action really does 'No Good' to the recipient 
immediately and 'More Harm' to the reveal er i.e., 'me' subsequently…. Here, the receiver is always confused with such revelations and is bound to react adversely at the back of that confusion.... That reaction from the other party is bound to cause damage to me and thus finally suffering prevails everywhere…. 

So the ideal way is not to get into this mode, but wait patiently till the other man queries out on this, out of his / her own enthusiasm…. Even at that point of time too, I should just tell him / her the minimum required and encourage him / her more and more on doing 'The Right' simultaneously myself continue doing 'That Right!'…. Ultimately, this 'doing the Right’ alone brings forth the Right Understanding everywhere!  If thus lived through with this discipline, it is nothing but just respecting the 'Reality as Secret!' 

Let us remember that in this world, the 'Knowledgeable Master' is a Wonder and the 'Recipient of Knowledge' called the 'Disciple' is a Wonder too!  Meaning....They are forever the Rear Personalities.... And all Revelations for ever should stay only between them.... We, as the normal personalities should be talking of this lesser and lesser but be doing more and more the 'Right' known to us!"

* The ‘In’ Human Face of Outsourcing….

The anxious Customer rang up to the Customer Support Cell…. “Hello! I am ……. Speaking from….... I am a member of your Institution and I have a problem….....” The Official at the receiving end promptly took his complaint, gave a Ref No and promised action in two working days…. The man waited for two days and nothing happened!

He again rang up the Cell…. The answer was “Sir! It is a Software problem…We are looking into that and we give the solution shortly….” But the waiting was of no use and the man decided to raise the level…

In no time, the Manager was on the scene.... He profusely apologized saying, “Sir! Sorry for the delay.... By today evening the problem will be set right!” The Customer felt a bit convinced, waited till evening and checked…. The story repeated and nothing happened…. He became furious and instantly decided to write to the General Manager giving a piece of his mind….

Thus, a mail was sent to the GM with all details…. And as usual, the GM called the Manager In-charge….

“Why are you not answering the Customer on what he wants?”

The Manger said, “Sir! It is a Software hitch and we have totally out sourced that Package….The Service Provider alone can answer the issue.”

“Then what’s the problem? Ask them to do that….”

The Manager scratched his head and said, “Sir! I did that….They too have a problem….”

“What do you mean?”

“This Company directly did not do our job…Part of the Software where this particular problem lies was outsourced to a Group outside and their whereabouts are not traceable this moment…. That is the issue as they alone can answer our Customer’s present problem!”

“But see my dear Manager! Here, you have to answer the Customer at the earliest and solve his problem…. We are meant for that…. If we can't do this, then where is the job for us?”

The Manager thought for a while and said, “Sir! I have a solution…. I know one address….They are Experts in tracking people and bring out the required…. They did a few wonderful jobs earlier…. We will Contract them with the task of identifying this problem with the Originator and bring out the right answer….We will keep a time limit with this Agency and answer our Customer accordingly…. When you as GM, reply to our Customer on this date, he will be pacified and will agree to that….Tomorrow itself, I will call this concerned man to our Office, brief on the work that will be outsourced and keep the time limit…. Further, we will collect all those monies what these people charge later from our Customer slowly and I have a plan for that......”
