Worrying about results of work? || Acharya Prashant (2019)

The source of the action, and the result of the action, correspond with each other.

If the action comes from the center of Holiness, then the results are bound to be ‘Holy’.

If the actions come from the center of Nothingness, then the results are bound to be ‘Nothing’. 

Similarly, if the actions come from the center of vice, or deception, then the results are bound to be distressing.
