Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18 Verse 59

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 18 श्लोक 59

यदहङ्कारमाश्रित्य न योत्स्य इति मन्यसे।
मिथ्यैष व्यवसायस्ते प्रकृतिस्त्वां नियोक्ष्यति।।18.59।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी तेजोमयानंद

।।18.59।। और अहंकारवश तुम जो यह सोच रहे हो? मैं युद्ध नहीं करूंगा? यह तुम्हारा निश्चय मिथ्या है? (क्योंकि) प्रकृति (तुम्हारा स्वभाव) ही तुम्हें (बलात् कर्म में) प्रवृत्त करेगी।।

Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna in a chastising mood reinforces the theme that if out of ahankara or egoism the delusion of ignoring His instructions is entertained and assumption of independence is embraced and one decides to artificially oppose their own natural path disregarding His mandate to the contrary. Such independent resolve will end in disappointment due to the reality that the predominant guna or mode of material nature will compel one to act in spite of all resistance. The mode itself will coerce one to acquiescence beyond their control.
