Work always out of inspiration

If WE observe ourselves closely, we will realise that goals always create worry in us.  When we move toward a goal, we move only with the worry about the results.  Lord Krishna says beautifully in the Bhagvad Gita, ‘The person who does not expect gain or loss from anything works happily with no need even for motivation.’

            When we worry, our work gets affected. So, when we are worried about results, the very worry affects the results. Work should always be done out of inspiration, never out of worry. The motivation for any work should be inspiration, not worry. Inspiration is an overflowing energy that expands our capacity to do things. Worry, on the other hand, shrinks our capacity and limits what we are really capable of doing because it takes away our energy.


Another major cause for worry occurs when we constantly try to satisfy someone else’s opinion about ourselves.  We are conditioned by society to worry about others’ opinion all the time. But the irony is that while we are worried about others’ opinion about ourselves, they are worried about our opinion regarding them!


When we are worried about other people’s opinion, we unconsciously weaken our efforts in whatever we are doing. We divert a major part of our energy toward suffering and worry. We should do things totally and to the best of our ability and not bother about appreciation from others. We should be clear from the beginning that we and not others are our only stronghold. So there is no worry about others.


The world today is highly competitive and everything is measured by productivity. But we do not realise that worry is a waste of time. It is the most non-productive activity. Everyone feels compelled to achieve. Everyone wants to be first and constantly worry about being the last. We should worry only if we do not utilise our ability to the full extent. If we have given our best, there is nothing to feel bad about being the last. It is not a sign of failure; it is a sign of success at a different level


When we work out of inspiration, we are not bothered about the results. We are bothered only about doing the task to the fullest. Any task done with the energy of inspiration always gives good results. Even if it doesn’t give the expected result, we won’t feel bad about it because we have received fulfilment simply by doing it. The ‘doing’ itself will fulfil us.
