Be instrument

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

And hence, invoking the potential Divinity that we have, Eknathji tells :
Let us be His instruments and implement the proposals of God
If we could not overpower the invaders, we should have, at least, fought with them, so that God could have taken care to do the rest. As He ordered Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita XI.33. Nimittamatram Bhava Savyasachin "Be only a means, a tool." He does not use His power separately. He uses it through somebody. For that, let us be tools in the hands of Divinity. Let us be instruments, the strong, the alert and the dexterous willing instruments. He is kind, but He is kind to those who are kind to His progeny. Let us prove to be so. He has great designs to carry out through us. Let us implement them.
What a great message! We have to understand that we are doing His works and therefore, giving up kartutva bhava, one becomes His instrument and do the work. We all therefore, should keep on reminding ourselves to be His instruments.
