Complex beings – Seres complicados


 
We are complex beings, at war within and without.   We contradict ourselves all the time, undoing the work of yesterday.  No wonder we are stuck”.
 
Nisargadatta Maharaj

The bound souls never think of God. If they get any leisure they indulge in idle gossip and foolish talk, or they engage in fruitless work. If you ask one of them the reason, he answers, “Oh, I cannot keep still; so I am making a hedge.” When time hangs heavy on their hands they perhaps start playing cards.

Sri Ramakrishna

 

…………………………………………………………….

Somos seres complicados, en guerra dentro y fuera de nosotros mismos. Nos contradecimos todo el tiempo deshaciendo lo que hicimos ayer. No es de extrañar que estemos bloqueados.

–Nisargadatta Maharaj

Las almas limitadas [atadas] no piensan nunca en Dios. Cuando están ociosas se emplean en cotilleo y vana [tonta] palabrería, o se dedican a hacer cualquier cosa [trabajo sin provecho]. Si le preguntas a uno de ellos el por qué, contesta: "Oh, como no puedo estarme quieto, estoy haciendo este seto". Y cuando les sobra el tiempo se ponen a jugar a las cartas.
 
–Sri Ramakrishna
