6.14 With soul in peace, and all fear gone, and strong in the vow of holiness, let him rest with mind in harmony, his soul on me, his God supreme.
6.15 The Yogi who, lord of his mind, ever prays in this harmony of soul, attains the peace of Nirvana, the peace supreme that is in me.…
6.16 Yoga is a harmony. Not for him who eats too much, or for him who eats too little; not for him who sleeps too little, or for him who sleeps too much. – The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 6)
Only through living a balanced life can we achieve a mind in harmony which in turn leads to peace. Freedom from fear and peace are prerequisites to attaining closeness to and consciousness of God.
If God is the author of this Universe and if there’s always a better way of doing or achieving something then seeking God’s input into our life must be a prime objective of life. When we can consistently dwell on, pray or talk to, God, we build the equanimity and peace that ensues from such a relationship. That’s Nirvana in daily life.
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM in balance.
