What does it say in Gita?


What does it say in Gita?

An ignorant man without any positive faith, are we equating ignorance to one’s faith and hope? An ignorant man knows only to doubt, goes in ruin? In my experience, ignorant minds are also never doubtful, as much as they are thoughtless. To such a doubting soul there is neither this world nor the world beyond. To doubt in this manner is never a good thing, that will surely ruin you into neither having this or that in life. There is no happiness? What is happiness anyway? Do we all equate happiness to the same, of course not.  I do love this, justice is to understand this world, equal to atma (the soul) not troubled. Take a look at the meaning I have for this.

I do not have the image in Gita, because it is combined with another verse. 

The idea of non-violence, and sustenance could be that mini book on prakriti, the 5 senses and the manner in which we are born here on earth.
