2.47: You Are the Sovereign

5 min - Talk


James recites and translates verses 2.47 of the Gita. You have the sovereignty over your actions, but you have no control over the outcome or consequences of your actions. Once you know that an action you've chosen makes you feel bound, let it go and do not rest in inactivity.

in reality it is so easy to think of the outcome of our action - we do that all the time...and we think we are king at the same a certain flaw there.  I like how this verse lays it all out, you are king, you have choices, you can't control the result, and don't think that doing nothing is an option, well it doesn't exist..  We have it all in a nutshell, just practice it now

Yes, I just love how Kṛṣṇa distils so much practical wisdom in this chapter. We just need to practice! And as you have heard me share in the recent live course, yoga asks us to practice, demands of us that we may incarnate our full humanity
I love chapter 2 James, each verse is a gem of wisdom, so practical... after I get past the slight shock of the many options and realise the essence, thank you for bringing it home here and in your recent live course !
