A Gita quote
Karmani ave adhikars te
you have the power to act only
ma phalesu kadachana
you do not have the power to influence the result
ma karmaphal hetur bhoo
therefore you must act without the anticipation of the result
ma sangostu akramani
without succumbing to inaction
This is a quote from the Gita...The meaning, of course, was copy pasted from one of the websites.
But, nevertheless, this touched my heart...One of the greatest philosophies of life, and one of the commonest things that we do, unconsciously, is clearly shown out in this verse of the Holy Gita.
Gita always says, "do must this, and you must do that"...It might seem to be very difficult to follow...But, the depth of the saying is something that really requires a lot of thought and understanding.
The above quoted text is something very easy to understand but very difficult to implement. Our wavering mind just thinks of the result while we are doing something----the must-happen positives and what-could-happen-negatives...
Just doing...Just doing that task is something beautiful in itself...More than the result, the contentment which you get is something amazing...Let us experience that !!!
