THE IDEAL OF KARMA-YOGA
By struggling, competition, conflict.
Suppose that all the particles of matter were held in equilibrium,
would there be then any process of creation?
We know from science that it is impossible.
Disturb a sheet of water,
and there you find every particle of the water trying to become calm again,
one rushing against the other;
and in the same way all the phenomena which we call the universe —
all things therein —
are struggling to get back to the state of perfect balance.
Again a disturbance comes,
and again we have combination and creation.
Inequality is the very basis of creation.
At the same time the forces struggling to obtain equality are as much a necessity of creation as those which destroy it.
