CHAPTER VIII

THE IDEAL OF KARMA-YOGA

Part-14.


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.
