Joining the Ranks of George Harrison, Beethoven, and Astronaut Sunita Williams
We share something in common, our appreciation for this ancient sacred text
Hello Change Your Mind-Change Your Life readers!
I’m joining the ranks of George Harrison of The Beatles, Composer Ludwig van Beethoven, and the Astronaut Sunita Williams.
We share in common an appreciation for The Bhagavad Gita (often called more simply, the Gita).
I’ll sprinkle a few inspiring passages from the Gita throughout this letter so you can witness its wisdom for yourself.
“Neither in this world nor elsewhere is there any happiness in store for him/her who always doubts.”
People study the Gita over a lifetime, and I’m not going to pretend I’m an expert in its message. What I am, however, is an earnest seeker of spiritual wisdom and a deeper connection to our Divine Source. Because you’re a reader here at Change Your Mind-Change Your Life, you’re likely a seeker of wisdom as well.
“The wise man/woman lets go of all results, whether good or bad, and is focused on the action alone.”
The Bhagavad Gita is a narrated story that recounts the conversation between a warrior-prince and God. Agonizing over warring with family and respected friends over a noble purpose, the prince crumples to the floor of his chariot.
“We behold what we are, and we are what we behold.”
What follows is text rich in wisdom regarding life, and our higher calling.
“It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection.”
This upcoming week I’m taking a deeper dive into The Bhagavad Gita. Beginning Monday, March 14, I’ll be reading the Bhagavad Gita with my online Yoga School. If you’d like to join us, here’s a link to sign up for the class. (These are my personal referral/affiliate links to share with my readers)
I think it’s important to read spiritual texts beyond the ones we grew up with . Or maybe you grew up with none at all. Spiritualty is a rich and complex field. There’s no end to our learning and discovery.
I hope you see you in the course!
