Commitment

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is
one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and
splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then
providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never
otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision,
raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and
material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power
and magic in it. Begin it now.”

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe 1749-1832, German Poet, Dramatist, Novelist

 

Focus

“Those who are on this path are resolute in purpose, and their aim is one. The intelligence of those who are irresolute is many-branched.”BG 2.41

The resolute purpose of a person in spiritual life is based on knowledge of the soul beyond the conception of the body – not theoretically but practically, when there is no longer a chance for sense gratification manifested in fruitive activities. One who is not firmly fixed in mind is diverted by various types of fruitive acts.
