18.13 “The yogi who is liberated while living has no duties in this world, no attachments in his heart His life proceeds without him” Heaven on earth In blissful mirth (23-August-2019) ~~~ Verse 18.13 revisited on 21-January-2022 When boundaries blur There remains no ‘other’ The manifest is God alone Even this body, we do not own The thoughts we call ours, inspiration Drawn into form as of heart’s resonation Being breathed each moment by God’s grace Knowing this the hermit slows down his life pace Detached from outcomes, he lives in the void In the continuum unending by love buoyed Abiding in calm thought rested stillness Ever entwined with the That oneness Single pointed remains his attention Bliss suffused, life a celebration

Thank you for the link Seeker.. Just now saw this... I didn't say I don't have a copy of Gita.. I have two copies, with translations. I just have to find more time and devote more time for reading them... Thank you once more... ~ Ani
