The evidence of self (jeevan) is in the form of its participation in living. Participation is based on one's capability and sensitivity. Capability is effective only with sensitivity. Participation begins from relationships in one's family and then it extends to the world.
Nature other than humankind is actively participating in the vibrant harmony of existence. Human being doesn't seem to know the steps of this dance! Human imagination is not anchored to the understanding of reality. Education is the way for aligning human imagination to reality. Unless a human being sees that the world is orderly, he cannot have true affinity and care for the world and his own conduct will remain disorderly. Seeing the essence of world's orderliness is a primary need for every human being.
Each unit of nature is orderly with its innate-nature. This is the principle for understanding the orderliness of existence. Every stage of evolution has its innate-nature, which is the way units of that evolution-stage exhibit orderliness in their conduct. For example, material-order is an evolution stage, whose innate-nature is integration-disintegration. Integration-disintegration is the way by which material order exhibits orderliness in its conduct.
The innate-nature of human being is - steadfastness, courageousness and generosity. Humankind can be orderly only when it lives with its innate-nature. This is a matter of capability. Humankind thus far has lived in animal consciousness, which is incapable of evidencing human being's innate-nature. Human being needs consciousness development to be able to live with his innate-nature, to be able to live in an orderly way.
Innate-nature of any evolution stage is expression of its religion. For example - material order's innate-nature of integration-disintegration is expression of its religion of 'existence' or 'being'. The material order units integrate and disintegrate while the matter continues to be. Matter doesn't get annihilated, nor is not possible to annihilate matter. "To exist" is the religion of material order, which is its "given condition", from which it cannot be separated. In order to understand innate-nature of material order, we need to understand its religion. In the same way, to understand our own innate-nature we need to understand our own religion - the aspect which is unshakable and inseparable from our selves.
Happiness is the religion of humankind. Human being cannot be separated from his want of happiness, even for a second. All human actions are in expectation of happiness. Innate-nature of a human being gets revealed upon his realization in happiness. It is with realization in happiness that a human being becomes able to actively participate in the existential orderliness.
