Gandhi: Ambition


Rune: Berkana*

Allow your soul to give birth in this world to what it has come to deliver. It is time to commit.


Ann: Mr. Gandhi?** Anita*** says you want a word?


Mahatma Gandhi: Yes, Ann, I wish to speak with you about ambition. It has become a dirty word in the minds of some of the more spiritually inclined and that, I think, is a great loss. Ambition is simply a desire to achieve a specific goal. It is the goal, not the ambition, that determines whether we walk with the angels.

In my religion, there are many guiding spirits and these, along with some trusted advisors, helped me keep my focus on that goal and, for the most part to channel my ambition in the service of the goal not my particular egoic star.

I wanted independence for the Indian people. For too long we had been treated as second class citizens in our own home. I will not say that I avoided the pitfalls of the star power that came to me, for certainly I faltered more than once. However, my teachers, both human and divine, were there to reel me back in when I went too far afield.

I was a lawyer as you are, and yet my principle purpose was not the enforcement of the laws already written but the propagation of a new society which could revise these old and outworn tenants so that they could better protect the citizenry whose welfare relied upon their fair and just application.

So I say to each of you to examine your ambition. It if is dormant, give it a kick, a wakeup call, an exposé and exploration so that you can get yourself in sync with your life’s purpose. Then go full tilt at the purposes for which you were created and line up your ambitious to felicitate that process.

If your ambition is taking you off your path, take time for reexamination. Block off time where the current state of your world cannot intrude and, in that quiet space, listen to your heart. Are you moving in a direction that has your full support? Are you becoming the person you want to be, slips and falls notwithstanding? If not, then take some steps to realign your ambition to guide you on this new path however faintly it may appear. One step, my loved ones, will facilitate the next.

Let’s hear it for ambition that provides fuel to feed the righteous fire. Activate yours and don’t look back! Call me Bapu, your father in spirit. Call on me, I will help you.
