Please clarify whether I have understood correctly: He who is established in the SELF (Consciousness), such a person is not a doer though acting through Body, Mind & the Senses because being established in the Consciousness makes him a non doer, even though acting. However even when not acting trough the body , mind & senses such a person established in the Consciousness, sees himself as acting through the Upadhi of his Consciousness the Maya. I also understand what Swami has said when he says that that such a person (established in the SELF) can see that HE WHO SAYS I AM NOT ACTING is actually a DOER, because that person has arrogated to himself the doership even though he is not acting, as such a person sees the "I" when he says I am not acting, and hence acts.

Question : Does this sloka 4 (18) refer to seeing action in inaction and inaction in action to the same person or the frame shifts from seeing inaction in himself while established in the Self and action in the other who claims to be non acting. Ideally the frame of reference should not shift and the sloka must refer to the same person who is seeing both action and inaction in himself while established in the Self.

Om!

Person established in the Self realizes the statement "action in inaction, inaction in action" in everything and in nothing. For understanding the concept, refer to the perceived movement (action) of trees along the banks while moving in a boat which he sees as inaction. The trees are not the person, he is the observer. Inaction can be explained along similar lines by the concept of ego which makes a person think (action) "I am inactive" thus making it action when externally he (the person not others in this case) is not performing any action. Further elaboration is done by describing the yogi who is established in the self in the slokas following 4.18.
Essentially, the person established in the Self is not concerned by action or inaction as being different, he is not affected by the presence or absence of either nor by the differentiation of him and others. To remove any attributes, one may say he is not unconcerned either. This concept becomes clear through realization and contemplation can be an aid in the endeavor.

Gurudev's commentary says this is for an intelligent person and not for a jnani.
The frame dose not shift from one to another.
inacton in action.........when we are working in the world slowly if we practice seeing our own actions as an observer the stress and anxiety levels

will come down.We can keep ourselves calm and peaceful .
Action in inaction........physically we may be inactive.But the mind and senses are working. Breathig ,.digestive system....so on .Who makes them work is the Lord.
