Chapter 3, V 22, 23 – “In the three worlds, there is nothing I must do, nothing unattained to be attained, yet I engage in action.” 3-22
“What if I did not engage relentlessly in action? Men retrace my path at every turn, Arjuna.” 3-23
I am so fortunate that Lord Krishna is relentlessly engaged in action helping me to retrace my steps back to Him. I am currently in my second reading of Stephen Hawking’s, “A Brief History of Time.” I enjoy watching Neil deGrasse Tyson’s, “Cosmos – A Spacetime Odyssey.” John Steinbeck’s, “Travels with Charley,” is one of my favorite all time reads. I am not seeking answers. I am broadening my horizon. There are a variety of activities I can engage in all the time and with every conscious action I can retrace my steps back to Krishna. I will evoke Tagore’s Rabingra Sangeet “He Moro Debota.” The poet states that the Lord makes him write, compose and sing so that through the poet’s song the Lord can celebrate His celestial mystery. Discovering that everything I do, think, enact, reflect, are retracing the path back to Krishna. Yes, the Lord cannot rest as he works tirelessly to lead us back to Him. In Arjuna and Lord Krishna I have friends for life.
