9.26 He who offers to me with devotion only a leaf, or a flower, or a fruit, or even a little water, this I accept from that yearning soul, because with a pure heart it was offered with love.
9.27 Whatever you do, or eat, or give, or offer in adoration, let it be an offering to me; and whatever you suffer, suffer it for me. – The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 9)
God recognizes our motive. There’s nothing we can give him except for our recognition of his primacy and his deep involvement in our lives. So when we acknowledge him and want to express it; anything that we offer is more than acceptable. No need to fast, or suffer, nor will any bribing work! That’s because God knows us intimately. He comforts us when we’re afraid and even recognizes why we are superstitious. But we needn’t be afraid, God underscores it all!
God seeks an active partnership with us. The way to approach the creator is to do so actively; even moment to moment. One purpose of life is to increase our awareness of ‘All That Is’; such awareness increases dramatically when we live in the moment. We can more easily live in the moment when we involve God in our daily events. This is a great way to live a holy and spiritual life! Being in partnership with God can be simple!
