Renouncing that, you should enjoy but not crave anybody's wealth. - ईशावास्य उपनिषद् । यजुर्वेद - Ishaavaasya Upanishad, Yajur Veda
कुर्वन्नेवेह कर्माणि जिजीविषेच्छत्ग्ण् समाः । एवं त्वयि नान्यथेतोऽस्ति न कर्म लिप्यते नरे ॥ kurvanneveha karmaaNi jijiiviShechchhatgN samaaH । eva.n tvayi naanyatheto.asti na karma lipyate nare ।। - Performing verily one's duty in this world should one desire to live a full hundred years. This alone is right, and there exists no other right path; action never binds a man following this path. ईशावास्य उपनिषद् । यजुर्वेद - Iishaavaasya UpaniShad, Yajur Veda
यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतानि आत्मन्येवानुपश्यति । सर्वभूतेषु चात्मानं ततो न विजुगुप्सते ॥ yastu sarvaaNi bhuutaani aatmanyevaanupashyati । sarvabhuuteShu chaatmaana.n tato na vijugupsate ।। - He who sees everyone and everything in Self; and the Self in all beings and forms; feels no hatred for anything. ईशावास्य उपनिषद् । यजुर्वेद - Iishaavaasya UpaniShad, Yajur Veda

In essence it means - performing rituals without understanding the true knowledge underneath; and engaging only in knowledge without performing the necessary action is ignorance. The right relationship between the rituals and knowledge is to be understood. ईशावास्य उपनिषद् । यजुर्वेद - Iishaavaasya UpaniShad, Yajur Veda
