6.8 The soul of man is his friend when by the Spirit he has conquered his soul; but when a man is not lord of his soul then this becomes his own enemy. – The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 6)
When we’re not in partnership with ‘Spirit’ and actively elevating our being, we could be our own worst enemies. That’s because we simply don’t know what’s best for us. We flounder about and often make poor decisions. We’re not happy.
When we move with ‘Spirit’ while seeking direction for our lives, we’re effectively in partnership with God. A partnership like this can never fail. Even if the world sees us as a failure, we’re on the right track and thrive from a spiritual perspective.
Daily Affirmation: Today I befriend God.
