Keeping GITA on work desk doesn’t help, keeping it in your heart does!
Today, while reading newspaper, I came across the news that IT commissioner, who caught taking his routine bribe, was keeping holy ‘GITA’ on the desk! This reminded me of smuggler Haji Mastan, who always used to wear white dress! This is a very common defense mechanism our psyche adopt, is called ‘Reaction Formation’. (Reaction formation reduces anxiety by taking up the opposite feeling, impulse or behavior. An example of reaction formation would be treating someone you strongly dislike in an excessively friendly manner in order to hide your true feelings. Why do people behave this way? According to Freud, they are using reaction formation as a defense mechanism to hide their true feelings by behaving in the exact opposite manner.)
One has to realize that keeping GITA(or any other holy book, any good book for that matter) on work desk neither make you good human being nor guide you to uplift your soul but keeping it in your heart guarantee you both. Similarly knowing about God doesn’t help, knowing God does!!
Happy Dhluleti !!
