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.
