Neutral gear

When you operate gears in a car, any shifting between gears passes through neutral. The neutral gear doesn't care if you have come from reverse, fifth or first. Nor does it have anything to do with which gear you will choose next. So far, so good.

Similarly, the self-abiding person has nothing to do with his surroundings or what the surrounding people see in him. The karma that seemingly applies to his body is mistaken as his intentional behaviour. That state is similar to shifting to neutral gear while the car is in motion. The car continues to move, but its not *because of* the neutral gear! Its *inspite of* the neutral gear. Thats what the bystander sees, not even knowing that the car is in neutral.
