Life is a short day; but it is a working day. Activity may lead to evil, but inactivity cannot lead to good.

Life is a short day; but it is a working-day. Activity may lead to evil; but inactivity cannot be led to good.

Effortlessness means not doing anything, inactivity -- AKARMA. Effort means doing much, activity -- KARMA. Both have to be there. Do much, but don't be a doer -- then you achieve both. Move in the world, but don't be a part of it. Live in the world, but don't let the world live in you. Then the contradiction has been absorbed. Then you are not rejecting anything, not denying anything. Then the whole God has been accepted.

Once you touch the biographies of human beings, the notion that political beliefs are logically determined collapses like a pricked balloon.
