3.25 Even as the unwise work selfishly in the bondage of selfish works, let the wise man work unselfishly for the good of all the world.
3.30 Offer to me all thy works and rest thy mind on the Supreme. Be free from vain hopes and selfish thoughts, and with inner peace fight thou thy fight.. – The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 3)
The highest work is that which is done for the greater benefit of others and is done without thought of selfish gain. That is one clear message from this religious tome of ancient India.
Inner peace is the foundation necessary for real growth in life. On such soil can be born intentions and resolutions that will lead to divinely inspired actions and results. Such actions will not be binding and will affect the larger good.
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM divinely guided.
