Those following this path try to keep their mind focused on God while engaged in worldly duties. It’s believed that this ‘double-aperture’ approach fosters correct action.
In essence, the mind is said to be fixed on God while correct action is performed without care for the personal “fruit” of those actions. However, the notion that one’s actions may be entirely untainted by personal biases and desires seems questionable.¹
