Obsession is the repetitive thought and compulsion is the action following this repetitive thought. It’s a fire ignited within the mind; always flaring, always motivating the action.

So what’s the result? The individual performs all his actions without letting the thought of failure haunt him or without making the practical appraisal regarding the achievability of the goal. Work is done at its optimum irrespective of the outcome or result. An obsessed action is just the practical adoption of the message from Bhagavad Gita, which says, ’not to worry or desire for the result but perform one’s karma’. Oh! What a beautiful state where goals are so easy to achieve! Where the work achieves a state to intoxicate the person and make him do, forgetting his identity, rather merging his identity with the action. The soul is put in the action performed- absolute no existence of the individual beyond that action. The identity melting and taking the form of this work. The product is an absolute masterpiece, a work of art; a work never seen before.

The individual gets all success. But in fact, this is the obsession which makes him so.

Forget your identity,

Just karma- the absolute karma,

Karma will make your identity,

Identity beyond the boundaries of time and space.
