The ultimate, and the hardest, step for any individual to take is to move beyond the fixed limitations and protections of the human standards of conduct and respond entirely freely as a nexus of the divine action. On the one side, there are all the fixed habits of the physical body, the vital being and the mind which lock us into responses that are grounded in the standards of life. On the other side, even at the highest edge of development of the human mentality, there is an inherent trepidation to move beyond the protection of the “tried and true” rules of conduct that prevail in the society.
The Bhagavad Gita advised Arjuna: “Abandoning all Dharmas, all principles and laws and rules of conduct, take refuge in me alone.” This was the difficult task assigned to Arjuna as the representative man of his Age, and he raised many doubts and questions due to his concerns about his duty, the sin or the virtue of his actions, and all manner of human considerations. In the end, the aspirant must be prepared to leave all these things behind and take that leap into the unknown.
