Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
1. In the Beyond-Beyond state of God there is: “Unconscious Inaction.”
The Beyond-Beyond state of God may be compared with a child fast asleep in a cradle: it is an example of “Unconscious Inaction.”
2. In the state of God-realization, there is: “Conscious Inaction.” This not the state of Perfection but of Liberation (Najaat). In this state there is absolutely tranquility which gives rise to infinite power, knowledge and bliss. The state of a God-realized person (not a Perfect Master) may be compared with a child wide awake but still in the cradle: this is an example of “Conscious Inaction.”
3. In the intermediate state (between 1& 2) there is: “Conscious Action.” Actions promote sanskaras (impressions). Sanskaras in turn breed more actions and create bindings – in this state there is bondage.
The state in between 1 & 2 may be compared with a child awake and out of the cradle: it is an example of “Conscious Action.”
4. In the state of the 7th plane there is: “Unconscious Action.”
The state of the 7th plane may be compared with a somnambulist – the somnambulist walks about or performs other actions in sleep and is not aware of what he does in this state. Similarly the 7th plane does actions and is not conscious of them. His “Unconscious Action”: he eats, drinks, speaks, etc. But all this is his “Unconscious Action.”
