Well this is an interesting thing, I am not sure when I’ll be posting this blog but I am writing this at 3O’clock in the night and my mid-sems begin tomorrow. But I can’t help it. I can’t resist the temptation to write it. More than a temptation it is a necessity for me to write this post. It seldom happens that such wonderful ideas and thoughts arrive in your brains.
I was thinking about the teachings and verses(shlokas) of Geeta, one of the most holy scriptures in Hindu Religion. Suddenly it struck me that some of the verses of The Geeta contain the same message as that of the “The Law of Attraction”. Well it can’t just be a coincidence. All path must lead to the same Truth, right? It turns out that both have same messages for us. It is important to note that the Law of Attraction is supported by the findings of the Quantum Physics, whereas the teachings of the Geeta are said to be words of GOD.
One verse which is very famous goes as follows-
Karmanye Vadhikaraste, Ma phaleshu kada chana,
Ma Karma Phala Hetur Bhurmatey Sangostva Akarmani
Scholars would be able to provide the exact meaning. However, as far as I understand it means – “Do your duty without worrying about the result.” It is the same as what the Law of Attraction has to say. It says, use the creative process without worrying about how a future is going to manifest. Well if one is worried about the outcome of his actions, I am pretty sure he can’t properly concentrate on the task at hand. Hence you do not give 100% effort or you may say, its more likely to be a half-hearted attempt. And when such is the case, the outcome is going to be affected. Isn’t it?
It is necessary that we put our 100% effort which requires a focussed approach. Mind can only focus when it is free of worries. So my friends, lets go of all our worries and perform the task at hand (as of now, for me, it means that I need to study for tomorrow’s exam :) ).
