Today’s Positive Thought (“Abandon all dharmas or duties, and follow me and only me”)


Lord Krishna instructing the Bhagavad Gita to ...

In the Bhavagad Gita there is a passage where Khrisna tells Arjuna to “abandon all duties, and follow me and only me.”  Krishna is God in the form of a chariot rider and teacher speaking to Arjuna the student and great warrior.  Krishna also tells Arjuna that this is the secret of all secrets, a very high lesson indeed.  The idea is to keep your mind and attention on God, and place this above all cares and worries and obligations.  In other words we must keep our mind on God and the magic of the Universe, act in light of God and our lesson and let the chips fall where they may.  It sounds easy but it can be very challenging.

How do we do this?  My way is to meditate often.  Think of the magic of the Universe often.  Watch movies, read and listen to such material often.  Trust the signs from the Universe that come my way on account of this and move on them, even if they challenge my normal way of thinking.
