Do What You Want To Do – In Living Color

I was listening to a summary of The Bhagavad Gita a while back and heard some great pieces of advice, one of which was this:

“Reshape yourself through the power of your will… Those who have conquered themselves… live in peace, alike in cold and heat, pleasure and pain, praise and blame… To such people a clod of dirt, a stone, and gold are the same… Because they are impartial, they rise to great heights.” ~ Krishna from The Bhagavad Gita

Sounds like an ancient plug for self improvement. It’s empowering to think we can shape all kinds of things about ourselves; finding ways to do more of the things we want to be doing and spending less time doing things we don’t want to be doing.

I keep having the thought that my life is exactly the way I designed it. Along with that thought is one that says “I can do anything I want, within reason…” I think that’s coming from being more aware of the decisions I’ve made and the costs, consequences and benefits of those decisions.
