Introspect, introspect daily

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji says inspiration of a self operated or self propelled worker does not depend on how others behave with him. He is in full control of himself. He says : On certain bogies we find "Explosives-not to be loose shunted." Certain others have "Glass with care"; thus like these bogies, the workers require to be shunted very cautiously and to be handled very carefully. The workers are to be coaxed in a courteous way and with soft emotions. Affectionate and kind people can handle them in a smooth way. Such workers take the inspiration from outside. But we have to introspect and give a clear thought to the situation. We have taken this difficult vow of service with a definite understanding and not on the inspiration from this man or that man. 'My enthusiasm and inspiration do not and should not depend on external situation. My battery can never be discharged and it will never require recharging. It is self-propelled and it can never bring any depression,' such should be the attitude.

Be self-operated

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji says Mature worker is self-operated. He does not depend on somebody or something or some situation to get inspiration. But his inspiration is the cause which has drawn him to the organisation. Eknathji says:
If we are not self-propelled or self-operated, then as soon as the congenial atmosphere ceases to exist, the depression overpowers us. Enthusiasm will have to be created a fresh. We will require recharging at regular intervals. We find bogies standing in the station yard. It is written on them "Return on 8th April 1978." Till this date the bogies can be used any way anywhere. They may be sent to any distance whatsoever. But on the scheduled date they will have to be returned to the depot for repairs, for renovation and used thereafter. So also the worker requires to be recharged after a regular interval on the scheduled date, then only he can work, otherwise his energy is lost, his enthusiasm disappears and he works no more. Like the bogies, he also requires maintenance. A mature worker is self-operated and needs no repairs and renovation.

Be self-propelled

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji says that a worker should always depend on internal resources, internal inspiration. He says : As a matter of fact, one should under no circumstances, depend on external situation for inspiration. For a mature worker the source of inspiration is not without; but it is within. It is no indication of maturity, if one depends on external things. We must be prepared even for unfavourable circumstances. The question is, are we self propelled or externally propelled? Do we move on our own or is somebody else essential to move us? We should not be spring propelled toys. These move only up to the moment the spring moves them, then they stop. In the case of a battery-operated machine, it stops working when the battery is down. The battery is recharged and then again it starts. But in the case of a dynamo which is self propelled, it does not require to be charged externally. The more the vehicle moves, the more the dynamo gets charged and works more efficiently. This is self-operated and not battery operated.
