Action is the insignia (=a badge or symbol showing person’s rank, position, etc.) of life. The law
Of life proclaims that none can remain without performing activity.
Everyone is made to act according to one’s own inner temperament. If you choose to remain idle, you lead yourself to destruction.
If you are born to a life of hardship, it will activate you and this will give you incentive to work. On the other hand, if you are born into a life of comfort, it will kill your motivation. Certainly, self motivation is of far greater value than external support.
Going through a troubled phase is hard for us. It is not unusual to blame ourselves and our actions for current state. Irrespective of its cause, we should think as to how we embrace this suffering and grow stronger from it.
It is not what happens to us but how we respond to suffering that matters. Such situations present us with an opportunity to grow. We should let go of the past and enjoy the present. Prayer is helpful in this suffering.
Suffering is not always a misfortunate. It often helps us to grow. In the depth of sorrow, we receive light. Suffering is not punishment but the price of fellowship.
Human beings need difficulties in life because they are necessary to enjoy the success.
Look at Nature. Observe the Stagnant pool (=a small area of still Emotionless} water) and running brook (=a small stream) where water stagnates it turns filthy and dirty, whereas running water is clean and pure.
If you are to succeed in life, if you wish to be prosperous and peaceful, you must adopt the principle of running waters. Follow their line of action.
Ups and downs are a part of life, depends on how you take it. You can either be knocked down by the negative things, or you can take it in a positive way and learn from it.
When you achieve something by dint of hard work, it gives you precious thing, and that is confidence. Hard work is always accompanied by confidence. And confidence leads to peace of mind. Nothing is better than peace of mind.
By hard work you can earn money, but through money, you cannot achieve hard work. The best formula of life is: “Do not try to obtain favours, but relay on your own efforts”.
Rose is a flower that smells for hour. Friendship is a power that lives forever. A rose may smell as sweet even if it is called by any other name, but that does not detract from the importance of a name, or of its spelling.
People not only take offence at being addressed by a wrong name, but are also very particular about how it is spelt.
Success without failures is as tasteless as egg without salt. Confidence guarantees success, diffident spells failure. Self-trust is the first secret of success. I enjoy my success in toil. Life’s greatest asset is faith.
Man without ambition is like a “rudderless ship on the sea”.
Many people are in perpetual fear of being insulted. Insult is far better than the fear of insult. Death is preferable to the fear of death. Criticism is better than the fear of criticism. Fear fans the fire of distressing (=painful) thoughts, it diminishing our energy. So live life free of fear, worry and stress.
