It is October, and there is no sign of a weather change at least here in San Francisco! This means, it is an ideal weather to enjoy the outdoors and read a book.
As I continue my Master's in Liberal Arts Psychology degree, I realize that this semester has been very heavy with reading science papers and writing based on my analysis. Given the time constraint, I am trying to finish reading only one book this month: "Karma Unravelled: decoding the law of karma."
“Just perform your duties without any expectation of appreciation and without and desire for the fruit -- neither gross nor subtle.”
This book is not an easy read, however, it has such a powerful message on performing duties without expectations. I remember the time when I used to donate to charities and I would wait for the newsletter in the mail so I can read my name in the list of donors; there was an expectation to receive something back as an appreciation. The book mentions this desire of a reward as an "attachment" that one must let go! I recommend the book to anyone who wants to dig deeper into the laws of "karma." If you happen to read it, please let me know what you learned!
