Lesson from the Gita

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

While I’ve been thinking about what’s next, I’ve been having a look into the Bhagavad Gita.

Conent with what comes to him without effort of his own, mounting above the pairs of opposites, free from envy, his mind balanced both in success and failure; though he acts, yet the consequences do not bind hi,

Indeed something has come, or apparently so. Not what I was expecting. Far from it. But then the question is one of purpose. What is my purpose in this? How does that relate to a higher order purpose. Where is the illusion? I don’t have an answer to this one. Or am I making this difficult for myself?

I agree in surrendering claim to the results of one’s actions. But acting with wisdom. Interesting.
