Karma Yoga

The karma of being what is really “myself” seems very important.

It’s “karma yoga”: Don’t try to be the best somebody else, but find “your” truth.  As I think over my career options, the little excitement that I feel over some of them appears to be something best not reinforced.  My thinking that I should head for library administration as a way of succeeding was to make the obvious “jump” to greater success in the eyes of the world. 

Maybe a risk finally that is truly worth taking is not to make this jump.  I fall back on the obvious truth that strong doubts about a given pathway, over a long period of time, mean that that route is best passed by.  All in all, I’ve decided that I want a “pathway with a heart” much more than a pathway of dubious “success.”

Career success pursued for its own end has no end.

  1. Interesting, I find myself struggling with this because I overthink things which ultimately makes decision making a bit of a lengthy process in the name of the “perfect” or “right” decision, if that makes sense. Thanks!

    1. I have the same problem. When I turn it over to the Holy Spirit, He always comes through at the time I really need to know something. And I think we would all lead much easier lives if we were consistent in turning our decisions over to Him who sees the whole picture. A Course in Miracles counsels this throughout all its pages. Love, Celia

  2. Wrong paths we take can be a path needed to shape who you are today. The bad experience I faced in religion opened my eyes to the truth and gave the strength to stand up for what is right.

  3. Karma Yoga is the first step in the spiritual discipline (Sadhana) which is to be adopted for Moksha. Karma yoga can serve as an aid to Jnana Yoga which secures the realization of the self. It can also serve as a direct means to self-realization since the practice of Karma Yoga in the prescribed manner includes in it the Jnana Yoga. The two are interrelated. But it is easier to practice karma yoga as it takes less effort and time to realize the goal because of the divine grace showered on the individual in response to the disinterested performance of karma.
