Circumstances have never been in control of anyone. Be it Ram, Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Prophet or you. How you respond to your circumstances gets determined by who you are, and dictates the direction of who you become. The city you live in, the civility in the people around you, your spouse, seniors, boss, neighbour and how they present themselves to you, are all different faces of your circumstances.
When your energy inside is high, if you are vibrant from inside, you will still look at what can be done. Being optimistic may be a good trait, but here I am not even talking about being optimistic. I am asking the basic question, are you willing to do what needs to be done?
If I am woken up by sudden sounds only to notice that the house is on fire! I can wail and cry of how unfortunate I have been, I can complain and blame the person whose negligence must have caused the fire. I can rush for the exit; think about others whom I can wake up and help evacuate; can even pick precious belongings while running out, if time permits.
We all are burning in some fire, of varying intensities, whether or not we think we have caused it. How do we respond to this fire ! Your response depends on the Level of vibrancy achieved in your body mind complex. Doing Saadhana (meditation/ Yoga practices) helps in elevating your energy. How happy you are is a signature of this state of vibrancy.
Can you just be happy; not allowing circumstances to make a stone statue on your memory.
This is a photograph of a couple who have come to the BHU hospital with their daughter to fix her fractured leg. They are happy that they are able to get the necessary medical support to their daughter at the “practically” earliest possiblity. Happy people are a blessing to the people and surroundings wherever they go. They become epicenter of a ripple of positive attitude.
सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः सर्वे संतु निरामयाः
सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्ति मा कश्चित दुःख भाग भवेत
