At time of writing, many around the world recently celebrated Diwali, the festival of lights which signifies victory over darkness, and a beacon of hope that speaks to the heart of our present condition.
Digging out and dipping into my copy of the Bhagavad Gita, one of India’s most important sacred texts, the following verse jumped off the page:
“Those who are motivated only by desire for the fruits of action are miserable, for they are constantly anxious about the results of what they do.”
Bhagavad Gita (2.48)
This set me wondering:
to what extent do ‘results’ cause anxiety in my own life?
