Another go with the flow 隨緣

Earlier on we talked about “Goal with the flow” in the general sense. This round, let us look at “Go with the flow” in the Buddhism context.

Whatever you want to spare, I will take it with utmost gratitude.

What is 隨緣 (sui2 yuan2)?

When you ask “hey wanna give me 50 bucks for no reason?”, and if the person replies “隨緣”, you can expect 50 bucks just like that!

But 99% of the time, these very same people who answers “隨緣” to every response (who would have done better with their opinions) would change their response to a “uhm no”, “Sorry money’s tight” when you ask them for valuable goodies. Is that 隨緣 just another one of those “I Pass My Turn” card for some of them to let their brain bulb gather more dust for whatsoever reasons?

Oh yes, what is 隨緣 (sui2 yuan2) again?

A) Let us examine each character one by one,
隨: Follow / Be guided by
緣: Fate / Destiny / Event / Whatever pops up

B) Now, if we put the words together and look at it as a resultant idea,
隨緣: Follow the flow / Come what may / I will go along

C) Finally, after we put in the right intention and culture to it,
隨緣: Follow the flow usually implies “OK, I’m cool with it as long as you know what you’re getting yourself into”. This is usually in accordance to:
1. Righteous law,
2. Modern law (is it against the law?),
3. Virtues I believe in (is this compassion?),
4. Values I uphold (am I feeding her or teaching her how to fish? Which is more suitable
this time?), and,
5. Appropriateness to the situation (oh, maybe you are just jesting, let me play along).

That’s why they all say NO when you ask for a dime in your tuxedo.
Or should I say: No wonder they say NO when you ask for a million while in your pajamas.
