Anekanta: The Third Eye ► 06 ► [06.04] Independence - Independence And Dependence

Posted: 03.06.2007

I was discussing independence. Who is independent in our world? Only on the base of existence can one be independent. The deciding factor of independence is relative to matter. Independence depends on the percentage of matter in the composition of the particular substance. Existence is independent. The existence of one does not interfere with that of another. A particle has its independent existence. Other particles do not interfere with its existence. They do not attack it or attempt to destroy it. Every object is independent in its existence. Sentience and insentience, are also independent from the point of view of existence. Even souls have an independent existence and so does a particle. Where the question is of existence there is complete independence. No matter is under anything or dependent. In this world nobody is dependent on anybody. There is nobody who can exercise such control over anybody. Everybody is independent. This is a matter-relative decision. However, thedecision taken on the basis of place can be dependent or independent. Today we are in this place. This is our place-relative independence. We cannot live in the same place for a long time. The place changes and that is a must. The decision taken on the basis of place will thus be relative.
