Don't worry about teaching the Gita; Krishna will do it in spite of you

There are many, many paths to God. 

All paths have their advantages and disadvantages, difficult moments to navigate and pitfalls to avoid. It's your attitude and openness on that path which makes all the difference to your spiritual growth.

Ram Dass, an American spiritual teacher, had doubts  whether he would be able to do justice to the great task he had undertaken - of sharing his reflections on The Bhagawad Gita - for students at a spiritual camp.  

When Ram Dass shared his concern with Swami Muktananda, this was the reply He received: The Gita isn't a book about Krishna. The Gita is Krishna. You don't have to worry about teaching the Gita - that's none of your business. The Gita will teach itself. Krishna will do it in spite of you."

This message is not just for Ram Dass but for all of us. Have unflinching faith about your path and develop a heart full of openness and love - that's enough. [ DO READ: Strong is the NEW Beautiful ]

Everything else will fall into place, perfectly, at the right time.

Thanks for the encouragement and inspiration, Swapna.

Yes, a reminder to let go and surrender. Life will bring us the lessons we need learn:) We don't have to ask for the teacher to show up! Many teachers show up as often as is needed and at the right cosmic time for us to learn the lessons.
