Karma-Yoga : Ch-5. Part-16.
WE HELP OURSELVES, NOT THE WORLD :
To recapitulate the chief points in today's lecture: First, we have to bear in mind that we are all debtors to the world and the world does not owe us anything.
It is a great privilege for all of us to be allowed to do anything for the world.
In helping the world we really help ourselves.
The second point is that there is a God in this universe.
It is not true that this universe is drifting and stands in need of help from you and me.
God is ever present therein, He is undying and eternally active and infinitely watchful.
When the whole universe sleeps, He sleeps not; He is working incessantly; all the changes and manifestations of the world are His.
Thirdly, we ought not to hate anyone.
This world will always continue to be a mixture of good and evil.
