The Free Soul

"The significance of a philosophical poem such as the Bhagavad Gita, or similar works of world literature, can be rightly valued only by one to whom they are not just theory, but destiny." — Rudolf Steiner

"Says Krishna to Arjuna: 'If you can rise above all this and not be disturbed by your own deeds; if you can live in your deeds like a flame quietly burning, protected from the wind, undisturbed by anything outside you, and your soul, undisturbed by its deeds, lives quietly beside them — then do you become wise. Then does your soul free itself from its deeds and no longer inquires as to their results.'" — Rudolf Steiner

"I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain." — Galatians 2:19-21
