The path is long, but self-surrender makes it short; the way is difficult, but perfect trust makes it easy. ― The Mother
The path of Karma Yoga like all other genuine yoga paths is a path of surrender.
It is the surrender of doing from the sense of the personal self to the flow of Being. It is the surrender of the sense of the personal “I am” to the experience of abiding within the universal “I AM.”
The life of a Karma yogini is a life informed by the flow of Grace.
As a Karma yogini you intentionally live your life in alignment with BEING. Life is less stressful. Your life becomes a flow. This is not your doing but your allowing yourself to be done through.
You are free of all desire other than your core heart’s desire which is to be a channel for the manifestation of the will of the Divine. You live the line from the Lord’s prayer that asks.
Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven – Matthew 6:10
As a Karma yogini you become a channel of Love in action. In the teaching of the Tao Te Ching this is called Wu Wei. Translated the term “Wu Wei means “action from non-action”
Creating, yet not possessing
Working, yet not taking credit
Work is done, then forgotten
Therefore it lasts forever.
