like I have been telling you guys & writing in my this online journal so that I go back & take a look at it again & find  those wise words again when I am wavering when encountering some negative events in life,  I have been attending this discussion format classes in our temple nearby where they are discussing bhagwad Gita sacred& ancient book of Hindu religion. It is teachings of God to prince on the battlefield where he is all torn apart & questioning these basic question that arises in his mind & God answers them beautifully, background of the story is there 5 brothers (pandava)who are righteous & by cunning method of their cousins kaurava who took away their kingdom by cheating them in game of chess, & after long years staying away from their kingdom since they lost it in game of chess when pandava came back to claim back their kingdom as per their agreement & cousins would not give it, so they had to fight their own cousins , Arjuna  head prince of pandavas who was bravest & expert warrior looking right in-front of him his own cousins, teachers from he had learned all his skills  from  on the battlefield, he gert all discouraged & started questioning what he is about to do on the battle field  to his charioteer, who happens to be Lord Krishna himself.  bhagwad Geeta is beautiful questions, answers series  of dialogue between Arjuna & Krishna.  lot of questions Arjuna asks  to God are very relevant & we all human beings also face similar question from time to time. like why should I fight my illness or my family for anything

I know I had faced them & was all confuse about what I should do when things got hard in my own life & I had to make decisions, & I feel lucky to have resources like these & made my decisions based on them.  basic teachings of Geeta is following

1, do your duties(Karma) based on your dharma like role you are playing in life,(wife,mother,employee,warrior, whatever role you are playing)

2. don't get attach to results( this was my AHA moment of the class  last weekend, you do your part expecting results, but don't get attach to results, results can go wither in your favor or against you. your job is to do your job without having any expectations, say results don't go your way, so what you don't know whole story, how things will unfold. Only control we have in life is doing our job.  I find I can so relate to Geeta) when things got hard in my life giving up felt so easy, but I held on  tight on strength of my hubby & my family & friends who decided to stay by my side & ofcourse our son was just 7 at the time, I could not do that injustice to him by giving up, I  decided at that time he deserves better mom I will fight tooth & nail & never allow this stupid stroke  to take away joy from my life, Anyway my latest AHA moment was do your duties but don't get attach to results,  my job in this battlefield of life is doing right things let God worry about results on which I don't have any control over.

Good advice. Pray and keep moving forward. Had to use that approach a lot over the past few years myself. Not an easy life Asha but still a good life.
