Commitments (Srila B.A. Paramadvaiti Maharaj)

From the Sweden mela 2011


 "Commitment is an unwritten contract. You can write many contracts people do that all the time, and usually they turn out failure, because there was no commitment. So we are not talking about contracts. As a matter of fact, in spiritual life we don't sign any contracts. [---] Commitment is something which is related to the unwritten; it is the heartfelt issue. If you're committed to something or to someone, then you will be faithful. And you stick to it. Because you're committed. [---] Real commitment is not intellectual "I'll do it because I promised", no. Commitment is something that goes deep inside the heart. And because it's inside of your heart, it's something which is motivated and generated and inspired and guided by love."
