When faith is running low and I am not able to keep up with sadhana (spiritual practice), what do I do?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Nothing, just wake up and see there is nothing, that’s it!

However life is, you have to bear the cross. This itself is very good wisdom. It gives you strength.

Whenever you want to escape from a situation, and you are finding a way to get out of it, then the mind is still outward, because the mind is engaged in doing. So when the mind has to go into deep rest, for that you have to accept that there is no way. Then you drop that wanting to do something, and then the mind settles down then and there.
