Which road should we travel?
There is two path suggest Krishna in chapter 16 of the Bhagavad Gita.
" The divine qualities lead to freedom; the demonic, to bondage.
It seems to be a simple choice....why anyone would want the demonic path?
This is how Krishna defines the demonic path:
"The demonic do things they should avoid and avoid the things they should do. They have no sense of uprightness, purity, or truth.
"Hypocritical, proud, and arrogant, living in delusion and clinging to deluded ideas, insatiable in their desires, they pursue their unclean ends.
"Bound on all sides by scheming and anxiety, driven by anger and greed, they amass by any means they can a hoard of money for the satisfaction of their cravings.
Driven by selfish desire, they miss the goal of life, miss even happiness and success.
I love to open the Bhagavad Gita randomly and read a chapter.... This is were it opened today. It struck me and how relevant it still is in our present world, 5000 years after the Bhagavad Gita. We are still having difficulties to choose what road to take.... I guess the less travelled one is a must for our society today....
