Entry for August 29, 2008

Mayi gave a talk called, “What is the texture of our striving?” in which she spoke about failure and directed her comments to those of us who have experimented with life or in life, if you will.
She spoke about the doer. It’s the concept of the doer that makes us think we have failed or succeeded. We are not the doer. The Lord is the performer of all actions that is why when we do seva we try to not think of ouselves as the doer.
You might say seva is the practice of not thinking of ourselves as the doer rather than something like doing volunteer work for the Guru.
And if you don’t you will be shot.
