Do you always feel overwhelmed, like there is too much to do in too short a time? This is a pretty good picture of modern life as technology is constantly accelerating the pace of our lives, both at work and at home.
In the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna is full of doubts on the battlefield. His head is full of information that is difficult to digest. His senses were assailed by the sound and rage of battle. His mind was focused and his emotions were out of control.
We are all connected – we are all overwhelmed by information, our tired eyes are glued to our devices, our attention is distracted and bombarded by buzz, signals and notifications. Noise is different, but the task of concentrating and thinking in the middle of a storm is a challenge that we share with Arjuna.
As a practical method of dealing with information overload, Krishna encourages reflection and advises Arjuna on the art and practice of meditation so that he can control his own thoughts effectively.
