Greatness of a being is in pursuit of greatness in everyday tasks. You don’t become great overnight. Each and every thought that you have, move that you make, task that you do, duty that you perform, thing that you create, define each day how much greatness you can achieve out of ordinary. Then one day all that ordinary transforms into divine extra-ordinary. That’s what truky Karma Yoga means.
Early judgement of an event as good-bad or success-failure is not in line with Karma Yoga. Karma Yoga is in giving your best and leaving the rest to The One who knows what’s best for you at that moment. An error made is a path to progress. Any idea about failure is illusionary. Without any such idea of good-bad or success-failure, what remains is Karma Yoga dedicated to The One. Disillusioned about the rat race and pursuit of happiness in this finite world, you must embrace the infinity and eternity. In that zone, such tiny setback does not even show up on the graph. However, your reaction does get marked on your spiritual calendar.
Greatness defined above using everyday tasks is all about surrender to the greatness within, dear. Central to this theme is your awareness of The One in day to day life – in things, events, people, ideas, failure and success constantly happening around you. The one will learn nothing if no mistakes are made ever. So don’t put blame on you and just extract the learning and gain wisdom from so called failures. Improve your performance to the level of greatness. Don’t fall back to feel ashamed later.
Greatness is not a cheap commodity. You must have valuables to exchange for this trade to happen. You must sacrifice your time, efforts, dreams, boredom, laziness and rise up to the challenge. The challenge is to become as great as you are within!
