Overcoming Events

Tue, 04/07/2009

All the problems that you face in life are because you attach over importance to events. The events grow bigger while you remain smaller.
Say, for example, you are riding a motorbike on a busy street and in front of you, another vehicle is emitting exhaust fumes. You have three options:


1. You can complain, somehow bear with it, and still follow the vehicle.
2. You can slow down or wait for some time to allow the vehicle to move far away from you.
3. You can use your skill, overtake the vehicle, and forget about it.

As in the first case, most of you stick on the events and are miserable, like inhaling fumes throughout your journey.
In the second case, you don’t get permanent relief, because another bigger vehicle might come in front of you. Running away from events is not the permanent solution.
Wise people use their skill to surmount the event. If the vehicle is in perfect condition, the skill is effective.
Conditioning the vehicle is Sadhana – practice. And skill is the grace of the Guru.
The mistakes you have made in the past have made you humble; you need not make mistakes in the future to become humble.
