Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj – Whatever happens is independent of our thoughts

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj said the words in a conversation published in the book The Ultimate Medicine. Whatever is happening is bound to happen. There is a series of events; a scenario is written down. So according to that scenario, things happen. If we are identified with all sorts of things, we have certain hopes and aspirations; and if things turn out accordingly, we are happy. If the things happen are not according to our wishes, we are unhappy. So we will continue to be happy and unhappy in an endless cycle, so long as we persist in this attitude. However, the moment we see things in proper perspective – that all we can do is to see that witnessing happens and that whatever happens is independent of our thoughts – then there is a different state. There is no volition as far as an individual is concerned; things happen on their own. When that is seen, there is already a certain peace of mind.
