Bond of blood

Bond of blood

Even the bond with your child is unreal because the blood from your body entered into the body of other soul. This external gross body is destroyed here and the bond is destroyed with that gross body. The soul of Abhimanyu in heaven did not recognise his father, Arjuna, for the same reason. The bond with wife is more unreal which is formed due to touch between the two gross bodies, which are like the external clothes. The bond of the child perishes with the death. The bond with wife may die at any moment with divorce even with in the span of this life time, having a greater probability to give misery. The Gita says the same (Ye hi samsparsajaa bhogah …). A realised soul will not entertain himself in such unreal bonds (Na teshu ramate budhah – the Gita).

The bond of blood , well the bonds between the relations you mention go much deeper than physical. Counting on just blood to bond one to another is just unreal. A bond is a sense, Love is a sense not an emotion. Love is the bond which goes beyond physical and past death. perhaps your cahracter did not recognize his father because there was no love. A husband and wife that depend upon physical bond is not a real relationship, so it makes what your Gita says irrelevant on the matter of bonds.

A bond between parent and child is more of a genetic bond and love bond than of blood. Blood becomes irrelevant. A parent does not have to birth a child to be its loving parent. Father or mother it does not matter.

I would argue that a realized soul immerses themselves in these bonds.

By basing oneself in the lie of self, and focusing on the self (or soul) as the sole real agent in the world, one becomes isolated. From this isolation and shearing of social bonds, the character becomes dangerously Apollonian.

Sensory deprevation tanks do not provide enlightenment, but madness. Solitary confinement does not encourage moral self-cultivation, but rather an abandonment of anything resembling that path and a descent into insanity.

To take such paths as foundations of moral cultivation is dangerous indeed.
