Gita: Evenness Of Mind

2.47 Set thy heart upon thy work, but never on its reward…

2.48 …Yoga is evenness of mind – a peace that is ever the same.The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 2)

thy work

God instructs us to understand what work is ideal and to devote all effort to it. We’re reminded not to worry or focus on the end result. Control of the mind and protection from its inconsistencies is the goal.

evenness of mind

In most chapters The Gita reminds mankind to cultivate a balanced and even state of mind. One which allows us to stay connected to the divine inside us and one that allows us to stay unflustered.

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM still and balanced.
