“karmany evadhikaras te
ma phalesu kadachana
ma karma-phala-hetur bhur
ma te sango ’stv akarmani” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 47)
Meaning “You have the right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty.”
It is one of my favorite quote from The Bhagavad gita.
Some where down the line i feel it is applicable to relationship as well, huh funny right some of us put in everything we got into a relationship with some bit of expectation. And we end in a delusion that it is gonna last forever. Yet most of the time we end with heart aches and breakdowns. Well i think the above quote is best suited for such situations.
We have the right to shower all our love, trust and affection into a person but we have no right to expect something in return cause if we are doing with expectation it becomes a trade or a bargain of some sort rather than a emotion. So lets sink in for a moment the fact that forever is a lie. Where is it connected you ask , well ok i think most of us might have thought that the relation shall last forever.
the best way to not to get hurt is to act as if you have no freaking heart. You may end up having less people around but surely it will save a lot of pain.
The main problem with the heart is it thinks everything is forever even when deep down inside we all that it is not. But the problem is there it is when we are down and we think that the love the care the help we showed to few will earn us back the right to get the same treatment from them, yes few may give but the fuck up is when we do not get it from the one we believed wouldn’t give up on us.
The fact is simple nothing lasts forever expect change not love not friendship nor our sorrows nor the sadness.
Change, people that’s the only thing that is forever…
Cheers to life
