Oneness : the panacea for everything

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji says the urge of the thought makes people stay together. They have a strong will to live and work together and in front of it, all other differences though exist, have no weightage in the life of a person. It is the  intensity of the feelings for mission that makes us adjust with any Karyakarta
A missionary organization is not just a group of people coming  together. They have a cause, a mission that creates a bond, an affinity amongst constituents. It is the cementing factor which unites and strengthens them. There is blood-relationship between brothers. Blood is thicker than water, they say. But ideology is thicker than blood and for the call of ideology, the calls from home, from blood relations are not responded to. Ideology is the strongest bond that binds people together. In between the blood-relations, say between brothers and brothers there can be conflicts, rivalries, feuds, fights and even battles but never so in a missionary organization. The inspiration that all derive is not from any mundane object, but from higher ideals, from the transcendental. If the family members decide to live together under any circumstances, there can be no cliques and rivalries. We have to harp upon this again and again that we have to live together as members of a happy family. Nothing should disrupt or break up the solidarity. Kitchen will never be silent. One pot may just strike against another, sometimes by chance. There may be small frictions, idiosyncrasies and fads among the cooks and as such some trifling conflicts may arise. But they subside because all have to stay under the same roof and to cook on the same oven. If oneness is there then motives are not imputed and Bhavartha of words is taken. Assertions of individuality are natural, but the thought of oneness minimizes them. The machine requires some lubricating oil to avoid friction, at least to minimize the same. The common ideal brings people of heterogeneous characteristics together with some design. They keep the ideal before their eyes and the conflicts are minimized. Everybody strives to take a charitable view of the small incidents. Motives are not imputed and misunderstandings are removed then and there.
