AlochanaamR^itaMThe Danger of MoralityThe man who remains bound by personal or social ideas of duty, necessary as they
are for the ignorant to tame their clamorous desires, will be indeed a "good" man, but he will never attain to the fulfilment of this
yoga [taught in the Gita]. He will only replace the desire for one
kind of fruit by the desire for another kind; he will strive, even more
passionately perhaps, for these higher results and be more bitterly grieved by
not attaining them.
There is no passion so terrible as the passion of the altruist, no egoism so
hard to shake as the fixed egoism of virtue, precisely because it is justified
in its own eyes and justified in the sight of men and cannot see the necessity
for yielding to a higher law. Even if there is no grieving over the results,
there will be the labour and strife of the rajasic kartA¢, struggling nd
fighting, getting eager and getting exhausted, not trigunA¢tI®ta, always under
bondage to the gunas.
It was under the domination of these ideas of personal virtue and social duty
that Arjuna refused to fight.

Food for thought
When you said "Yes" to Me, you gave up the right to be like everyone else. That
is why you draw experiences to yourself that will cleanse yourself of that which
does not fit who you are. Over and over, again and again, until I make you see
that the past no longer works. I challenge you and tempt you every day with your
past, so that you may see that the past is the ultimate delusion. When you said
"yes" to Me you gave Me your body, your thoughts and your actions. When they
don't suit the new you, the uncomfortableness is unbearable. It will be so EVERY
time and when you realize this fully, then and only then will you completely
give up desire. For this is the only way man will learn. Very seldom does he
learn by quiet reminders. Man's desires and pitfalls are placed there so that I
may do My work. When you give up totally, then the temptations will fade. I will
never give up on you. Every slip will become harder and harder to bear and less
easy to remedy. You will tire of your foolishness because I love you and though
not completely aware of it, you did say "Yes".
