“Raga-dvesha-viyuktaistu vishayanindriyais-charan Atmavasyair-vidheyatma prasadam-adhigacchati” “But the disciplined (lower) Self, moving among sense-objects with senses free from attraction and repulsion and mastered by the Higher Self, goeth to Peace.” (Gita, II-64) Attraction and repulsion are the two aspects of mind that create pleasure and pain alternatively. It is hard for the mind to achieve equanimity which is otherwise called indifference. The mind oscillates between the attraction and repulsion constantly. Whenever there is attraction and pleasure, anger and fear are hidden. The desires and attachments are the two driving forces of mind and unfulfilled desires and attachments or something that is taken away or about to be taken away from us, cause anger and fear. When we get carried away by abilities of our body and mind, the fear of death is dominant. When we believe money is the driving force for happiness in life, we always carry a fear of losing our wealth. If we love our family dearly, we will continue to carry a fear of losing their love. Attraction and repulsion can be at four stages namely a) burnt up, b) thinned out, c) concealed and d) fully-expanded. The first two are feasible only for those who renounce the desires and attachments as part of their lifestyle. One can meditate in the forest renouncing the worldly life but still may not renounce desires and attachments and another can live in the world and still renounce desires and attachments. The third and fourth stages happen to those who lead a worldly life. Sometimes, it is entirely possible for someone to thin out repulsion to have fun for a period. For example, wife could be very agitated about the general behavior of the husband but temporarily reach truce to make a special day enjoyable. It is entirely possible for a wife to forgive the husband also if he had forgotten the special day. Generally, attraction and repulsion are in fully-expanded stage when we operate in the world on a regular basis. Desires and attachments in the mind can’t sprout without the help of attraction and repulsion. When the mind is set in motion or vibration through the current of attraction and repulsion, real Karma begins. Real Karma begins from the Sankalpa of the mind and not when the external actions manifest. Thinking itself is an action and that is precisely why fantasies are also part of Karma. Emotions and impulses also coexist with desires and attachments. The cycle of life consists of misery caused by the existence of body, body caused as the result of Karma, Karma caused by attraction and repulsion, attraction and repulsion caused by the feeling of “I” and “Mine” and “I” and “Mine’ caused by ignorance. The root cause of everything is ignorance and the only way that can be eliminated is by getting the knowledge about the Truth. The ways to destroy the attraction and repulsion is by developing right-thinking and meditation to regulate the mind. We need to make effort to move above the pair of opposites to become eternal and enjoy infinite bliss and peace. Among many qualities of mind, the ones that need maximum effort to eradicate are desires, attachments, attractions and repulsions as they are deep-rooted. Holding everything with the mindset of Trustee is one way to detach from material possessions. Entirely eradicating desires is also hard, but we can work on a ceiling on desires. Be it family or friend, the love must be developed unconditionally with no strings attached. Serving those who need help could be another way to tame the mind and its feeling of “I” and “Mine”. Moderation in everything whether it is celebration of success or withdrawal in failure must be limited. One way to successfully achieve this is to stay in the present moment. If life exists, the mind will continue to exist. We can only stop the oscillation, and a stable and calm mind can provide something much more precious called “Peace”.
