Arjun says, "Out of compassion (𝙖𝙣𝙪𝙜𝙧𝙖𝙝𝙖) , you have revealed to me the secret wisdom (𝙖𝙙𝙝𝙮𝙖𝙩𝙢𝙖) and my delusion is dispelled (11.1). You have explained to me in detail about the origin and the dissolution of beings, as well as about your imperishable greatness (11.2). You have told me about your supreme glory and I wish to see your supreme form (11.3). If you think that I am capable of seeing your supreme form, then show me" (11.4).
The general belief is that HIS blessings are a must to overcome delusions and attain 𝙖𝙙𝙝𝙮𝙖𝙩𝙢𝙖 . This is used as an excuse to avoid the difficult task of internal transformation. If one is told to perform 𝙠𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖 (action) without expecting 𝙠𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖-𝙥𝙝𝙖𝙡 (fruits of action) one argues that it is not possible without HIS blessings. The same happens when one is told to transcend polarities; transcend 𝙜𝙪𝙣𝙖𝙨; drop the differences or labelling to see HIM around us in every living and non-living entity.
On the other hand, whoever attained 𝙖𝙙𝙝𝙮𝙖𝙩𝙢𝙖 said that it happened because of HIS 𝙖𝙣𝙪𝙜𝙧𝙖𝙝𝙖 as what they got was beyond their imagination. This looks paradoxical. Basically, HIS blessings are available to everyone like rain and we should certainly make an effort to keep the bowl upright to hold water.
Krishna says, "I am equally disposed to all living beings. To Me none is 𝘿𝙬𝙚𝙨𝙝𝙮𝙖 (hateful), none is 𝙋𝙧𝙞𝙮𝙖 (dear). But those who worship me with devotion are in Me and I am also in them" (9.29).
The difference is the devotion which is like keeping our bowl upright. In the contemporary context, 𝙖𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙠𝙖𝙖𝙧 is referred to as entitlement. Devotion is nothing but shedding entitlements by realising that it's all HIS grace and at the same time performing 𝙠𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖𝙨 assigned to us in the present moment by this mighty existence without attachment or detachment.
