वृत्ति alone won’t work.
कृति alone won’t work.
वृत्ति + कृति works, always.


Mental Black-hole = Tunneled Vision = Lack of acceptance of the Universe as a whole

अन्धं तमः प्रविशन्ति येऽविद्यामुपासते
ततो भूय इव ते तमो य उ विद्यायाण् रताः ॥

ईशावास्य उपनिषद्

They who follow rites (or rituals) alone enter into blinding darkness, and they, who are engaged in meditation (or knowledge) only verily fall, into an even greater darkness, the mental black-hole or delusion. [ In essence it means – performing rituals without understanding the true knowledge underneath; and engaging only in knowledge without performing the necessary action is ignorance. The right relationship between the rituals and knowledge is to be understood.]

“भोजन करनेसे आनंद होता है” – If you keep repeating this, you won’t find the आनंद. To feel the आनंद, you need to prepare food with total involvement, and eat it as a ritual. That is where आनंद is – in your involvement.

Actions are important. Only thinking won’t help.
Any actions fruits depend upon the state of mind with which action is performed.

स मनसा ध्यायेद्, यद् वां अहं किं च मनसा ध्यास्यामि तथैव तद् भविष्यति। तद्ध स्म तथैव भवति| गोपथ-ब्राह्मण 1.1.9

आधे-अधूरेपन से कार्य करने का भी निषेध किया है।आदमी मन से जो सोचता है, वही होता है|

Mental focus is important while performing any action.
अकर्मण्यता (तमस) -> कर्मण्यता (रजस) -> अनुष्ठान (कर्म + मन) (सत्व)

Action must be backed by मनका पूर्ण विश्वास + निश्चयात्मक बुध्धि
