Exploring Chapter 2 of the Gita
This month, I decided I want to share some thoughts on parts of the chapter that I find inspiring in my everyday life. I hope that in them you, too, will find a treasure that can help lift you up above the day to day and see a bigger picture– and see your spirit’s place in it.
Let’s dive in this week by considering the following passage from the Gita:
It is in action alone
that you have a claim,
never at any time to
the fruits of such action.
Never let the fruits of action
be your motive;
never let your attachment
be to inaction.
But why would I do something if not to get something?-Just for the sake of doing it?
What might that look like?
To give a gift– not to get one, and not even for the joy of seeing someone receive it, for both of those things are fruits of giving the gift. To give a gift simply to give.
