About Samskharas

The house, family, relatives, lineage, political, economic, and national situation,
And other such circumstances you were born and conditioned into,
Are from your ‘Samskhara’, i.e. the inheritance acquired on the basis of your past.
This samskhara also includes your disposition and attitude towards all of those circumstances.

That whole mental setup unfolds itself over time as we grow up,
Just like how a seed manifests a plant, and then a tree over time.
Just as there is samskhara for an individual,
There is also samskhara for the collective.
The individual samskhara is a subset nested within the collective samskhara.
For instance, if you were born in the 14th century,
Your would not be inheriting a car, laptop, tv etc. no matter where on earth you were born.
Similarly if you were born in the future, say 2150 AD,
You might be privy to accessing special electro magnetic light healing technology,
Which would be capable of healing all sorts of physical and mental diseases and afflictions,
Something we can only dream of today.

If samskhara is the imprint of the past, there is also a force that impels everything forward to change.
Like when looking at the solar system as seen from the heliocentric model, we see that everything moves round and round in orbits around the fixed sun.
But if we go beyond that model, we see that the sun itself moves around the milky way, and the planets perform a vortex like motion.
Similarly, various larger forces of evolution are actually constantly changing things.
Things from one perspective appear to be cyclical, but there is also evolution simultaneously happening.
Evolution is transformative in nature,
For instance, the growing up and the aging process.

How can one go beyond one’s past?
It begins to happen when a yearning for something beyond arises,
I.e. when that begins to take hold, take foot, in one’s life experience.
This yearning/longing then begins to carry the being beyond its past.
And begins to transform it.
