The Eye to See the I

The Eye to See the I

Belong addresses our heart’s longing to belong to something bigger than ourselves – a longing that is nourished and fulfilled by the Bhagavad-gita’s transformational message of spiritual love. While presenting that message in accessible 300-word nuggets, Belong shines the light of the Gita on many themes important for our inner growth: Optimism: Our willingness is more important than our willpower Resentment: Possibilities expand when we begin from where we are instead of where we should be Happiness: Temporary relief from self-inflicted torture is not pleasure Association: Our desires are not just linear, but also triangular Temptation: We don’t have to defeat our lower desires – we can just let them lose Discipline: Rules free you to be you Devotion: Krishna is the master before whom we stand truly erect These 121 reflections prompt the head and the heart to move closer towards belonging to the one in whom our potentials attain the fullest development and we find the deepest fulfillment.
