When you share your misery, it doesn’t reduce. When you don’t share your joy, it reduces.
Share your problems only with the Divine, not with Tom, Dick, or Harry – that just increases the problem.
Share your joy with everybody.
Darren: How do you help people who share misery with you?
Gurudev: I have a thousand and one ways. Often it happens that when they share their problem with me, it is immediately resolved. Other times it requires some patience. Just know that all will be taken care of.
Mary: How can we help people who share their misery with us?
Gurudev: Listen to others – yet don’t listen. Because if your mind gets stuck there as well, then not only are they miserable, you also get miserable. Be caring and share with them the Knowledge.
