Sri Paramahansa Yogananda, 4 : 6, God talks with Arjuna, The Bhagavad Gita.

 The consciousness of man under the influence of Cosmic Delusion is bounded by attachment to material possessions and mental faculties. The yogi of Self-realization, on the other hand, finds that he can possess a physical body and work through it without bondage to material desires and their karmic effects, just as the Lord remains unattached and free from karma even while His intelligence silently acts throughout the cosmic vibratory body of creation, ruled by His delusory law of relativity.

This stanza affords great encouragement to man. By avoiding the misuse of the gift of free choice, and by practicing Kriya Yoga, he can shine forth as an image of God-an image hitherto delusion-eclipsed. Remembering himself as the image of Spirit, the yogi learns that he, even as God, can work in the world unfettered by bodily environment, or by karma, or by Cosmic Nature's ever-changing attributes (gunas).
God has spun this eventful cosmic play on the stage of time to entertain us, but we take the shadows as serious realities! There is only one Serious Reality-God!
