Inner resonance leads to outer coherence !(Gita Daily), Diksha Mataji,

Published on Jul 22, 2013

Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 13, Text 10-11

"Why do things keep going wrong?" Life often vexes us thus due to its unpredictable upheavals.

Gita wisdom suggests that we might be asking the wrong question: "After having so much repeated and resounding experience of things going wrong, why are we so naïve as to expect things to go right?"

We might protest, "How can I not expect things to go right? Am I meant to just sit passively and watch glumly as things go on a disastrous downslide?"

Gita wisdom doesn't at all recommend passivity; the Gita was spoken to inspire its original student, Arjuna, to rise from passivity to activity. What Gita wisdom recommends is that we forgo labeling situations as "going right" and "going wrong" and instead focus on our responses so that we are "doing right" instead of "doing wrong."

The Bhagavad-gita (13.10-11) indicates that we can suspend mental labeling of situations (nityam ca sama-cittatvam ishtanishtopapattishu) when we fix ourselves in undistracted devotional remembrance of Krishna (mayi cananya-yogena bhaktir avyabhicarini). By this prayerful connection, we experience an inner resonance with Krishna that brings outer coherence to our vision.
