Meher Baba

 
Do whatever needs to be done, but do it as a spiritual being.

As one who knows he is divine by nature and unlimited with the whole of life in essence.

Do it as if you are doing it for Me or for God.

Do it with equal consideration for the interests of all concerned, for God is equally in each.

Do it with utmost concentration, yet with utter detachment for the results of action.

Leave the fruit of action to Me or to God.

Do it as if it were the most important thing in the universe, yet let it be destroyed, or ignored, or ridiculed without concern, or let it be praised without elation.

Leave the response to Me or to God.

Do it, in short, as if you were not doing it at all, but as if I or God were doing it through you.
