The most direct method of achieving spiritual success is Nishkama Karma, action without any attention or attachment to the fruit therefrom - action as duty, action as dedication, action as worship. But, action and the fruit thereof are not two separate entities; the fruit is the action itself, in its final stage, the climax, the conclusion. The flower is the fruit; the fruit is the flower; one is the beginning, the other is the legitimate end. The flower becomes the fruit. The action becomes the consequences. One's duty is to act; act well, act in fear of God; act within the bounds of morality; act in love; continue acting; the consequences will naturally follow as the fruit follows the flower. One need not worry or exult. Act enthusiastically, with faith - success is yours.
