"No- one can gain perfection, while obtaining from work. Indeed, there is no one who rests for even an instant. All creatures are driven to action by their own nature. Those who obstain from action by allowing their mind to dwell on sensual pleasure, can not be called sincere spiritual aspirants. but they excel control the senses through the mind, using them for selfless service. Fulfil all your duties. Action is better than in-action... Even to maintain your body you are obliged to act. Selfish actions imprisons the world. Act selflessly without any thought of personal profit." - Bhagavad Gita.
So ALL, this weeks Blog is focused on TAKING ACTION!
In class, we will explore this through the strategies and capabilities we need in our minds and body to take action in a self nourishing way, to create strength and flexibility that in turn creates space and ultimately more freedom in the self.
'Karma yoga is the active path of selfless service. One who shirks action, can not obtain freedom.'
