Reading: More Gita

Here is another short excerpt from Schweig's Bhagavad Gita to contemplate:

"Since nothing can exist apart from divinity, and since all living beings are eternally unique and constituent parts of the divine existence, it stands to reason that the only yoga Yogeshvara has yet to achieve is that yoga involving the hearts of humans. In other words, the only thing that God lacks is the personal union with human hearts." (p. 249)

There is an on-going controversy in Christianity as to whether or not God desires, or allows for, a Universal Salvation. It would seem from Schweig's "Textual Illuminations" of the message of the Bhagavad Gita, that God--known as Krishna-- definitely does desire all souls to achieve union with divinity.
