ACT WITHOUT EXPECTATION, ( TIMES OF INDIA 3RD MARCH 2008) A man’s creativity, his enthusiasm, zest, and zeal can only spring and evolve when he is well rested. By saying “well rested”, I do not mean physically rested but the rest of the mind. Can one’s faculties rest when he is constantly anxious about the outcome of his action? When we perform any and every action with an eye on the end result ,we get lost in the end and don’t enjoy the means of getting to the end. But when we perform some action as an expression of joy and do not bother about the result, the action itself brings fulfillment. Anxiety about the outcome of your action is what pulls you down, you loose your creative self, you loose the zest and zeal and loose your confidence and then as a human you are no longer creative At the beginning of the project if one starts worrying then the whole enthusiasm for the project gets dampened. When we are aware of our potential we must jump into action without bothering about the result. That is why Mahatma Gandhi always said ,”Full effort is full victory. He was a karma yogi in the truest sense, he followed the path of karma yogi, or self less service which requires the capacity to be completely and perfectly detached from results and undaunted by reverses. Bhagawat Gita says “you have the right to work, but never to the fruit of the work. You should never engage in action for the sake of the reward, nor should you long for inaction” The lord says “If you throw yourself heart and soul into selfless undertaking, using the right means, the purest means that are available to you, I will be responsible for the outcome.” Wrong means can never bring about a right end and right means can never fail to bring about the right end
