Karma-Yoga : Ch-7. Part-17.


CHAPTER VII .
FREEDOM : :

Part-17.

We cannot.

We only help ourselves in this gymnasium of the world.

This is the proper attitude of work.

If we work in this way, if we always remember that our present opportunity to work thus is a privilege which has been given to us, we shall never be attached to anything.

Millions like you and me think that we are great people in the world; but we all die, and in five minutes the world forgets us.

But the life of God is infinite.

"Who can live a moment, breathe a moment, if this all-powerful One does not will it?"

He is the ever active Providence.

All power is His and within His command.

Through His command the winds blow, the sun shines, the earth lives, and death stalks upon the earth.

He is the all in all; He is all and in all.

We can only worship Him.

Give up all fruits of work; do good for its own sake; then alone will come perfect non-attachment.

The bonds of the heart will thus break, and we shall reap perfect freedom.

This freedom is indeed the goal of Karma-Yoga.
