The Bhagavad Gita

 "Actions are really performed by the working of the three gunas (Nature) ; but a man deluded by the I-sense imagines, “I am the doer.”

He who sees that all actions are performed by the forces of Nature alone and thus that The Self (Awareness) is not the doer— that man sees truly.

The one who is free from the notion of doership and whose wisdom is not befouled; Even after slaying these people, neither slays nor is bound.

If due to ego you think: "I shall not fight"; This resolve of yours is vain. Your own nature will compel you.

What you do not wish to do out of delusion; You shall do even that against your will, Bound by your own nature-born Karma, O Arjuna.

The Lord (Awareness) abides in the heart of all beings, O Arjuna, causing all beings to act by his power of Maya as if they are mounted on a machine.

Seek refuge in Him (Awareness) alone with all your heart, O Arjuna. By his grace you shall attain supreme peace and the eternal abode.

Without concern for results, perform the necessary action; surrendering all attachments, accomplish life’s highest good.

You have a right to your actions, but never to your actions fruits. Act for the action’s sake, and do not be attached to inaction.

Self possessed, resolute, Act without any thought of results, open to success or failure. This equanimity is Yoga.

Performing all actions for my (Awareness) sake, desire-less, absorbed in the Self, indifferent to “I” and “mine”, let go of your grief and fight!"
