Why should we never feel insecure about the role we are given to play in life? What is it that matters in the end? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.
The weeping child must later leave this world laughing; the worth of life is to be judged by how one feels when one nears their end! Love is the seed, and devotion is the seedling, the sapling. Faith is the manure, company of the good is the rain, offering of the Self is the flower, and merging together is the fruit. With that, one must throw off this coil and become free. Gita advises renunciation of action, that is to say, karma without attachment to the fruits thereof. Some karma must be done as duties, related to status in worldly life, and if these are done in the proper spirit, they will not bind at all! Do all karma as actors in a play, keep your identity separate and ensure you are not attaching yourself too much to your role. Remember that the whole thing is just a play, and the Lord has assigned to you a part. Act well your part, and there all your duty ends. He designed the play, and He enjoys it!
