द्वा सुपर्णा सयुजा सखाया समानं वृक्षंपरिषस्वजाते ।
तयोरन्यः पिप्पलं स्वाद्वत्त्य नश्नन्नन्योऽभिचाकशीति ॥१॥

ऋग्वेद म.1| सू.164| म.20||

RugvEda Mandala 1, sUkthA 164, manthrA 20

This beautiful verse, occurring in the Rg Veda, enunciates the Eternal Triad - jivAthman, Paramatma and Prakriti -

Two birds (सुपर्णा), eternal friends (सखाया) , inseparable (सयुजा), perched together on a Tree. The first one enjoys the fruit borne by the tree, while the other merely observes in silence."

The one that enjoys the fruit is jivAtman, the individual soul, while the one that observes is paramAthman. They both, inseparable friends that they are, are perched on the Peepal Tree, which represents prakRuthi. The one that performs Action is the individual soul, the jivAthman. Having acted, it enjoys the fruits of the Act. paramAthman merely watches. paramAthman  neither performs Action nor enjoys subsequently the fruits of the Act.

This verse brings out the relation between the three components of the Eternal Triad. Atman and Paramatman are joined together in a relationship of eternal friendship as allegorically stated in the phrase - सयुजा सखाया. While the former performs actions and enjoys the fruit of his actions, the later merely enjoys in being the Silent Witness to the Acts of Atman. Atman interacts with prakRuthi whereas paramAthman  remains aloof, merely observing.

Athman is passive observer, untouched, unaffected. shudDha prajnyA

It is only due to the delusion which is caused by not learning the
Truth of Self that jivas are suffering. Therefore, always take to the
practice of Jnana the inward enquiry "Who am I that is suffering?"

Food for contemplation:

It is said, what we are, is because of our past karmA! Tracing back, how did the first karmA originate? :)

Bala man aslama wajhahu lillahiwahuwa muhsinun falahu ajruhu
AAinda rabbihi walakhawfun AAalayhim wala hum yahzanoon


Yes indeed, whoever submits His whole self to Allah and is a doer of good,
his reward is with his Lord; And no fear will there be concerning them,
neither will they grieve.

when we discern that the ones that cause any form of hurt to us, are just an instrument in the hands of God, so as to enable us to endure our prArabdha karmA, then all differences cease, good and bad are alike, love and hate are alike. The knot is broken. No hurt feelings will emanate from within anymore. Compassion fills the heart for the ones that are causing any form of hurt.

But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him:] for he that
cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a
rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
