Give us this day our Tuesday Tease — from Should Be Reading.
In this world there are two main paths:
the yoga of understanding,
for contemplative men; and for men
who are active, the yoga of action.
Not by avoiding actions
does a man gain freedom from action
and not by renunciation
alone, can he reach the goal
– pg. 62 of Stephen Mitchell’s The Bhagavad Gita: chapter 3, verses three and four. It makes me think of the old struggle between the active and contemplative lives, as well as Buddha’s “middle way”.
