GO WITH FULL CONFIDENCE


What is happening with me in the recent days, is anyone wondering up here? Its been almost three months since I have posted anything in here. Between then and now, there have been so many things happened. Good and bad alike. Be as it may, since I am an ardent believer of "what do you think, what you are - philosophy" I always wanted to look at the positive side of any outcome.

The following passage I am re-typing in it here from a book written by Swami Satchidananda entitled on The Golden Present. In the hope of, it will help me when I need it wherever and whatever the situation I am in. This reading is for the month of December 12th. Here it goes...

GO WITH FULL CONFIDENCE

...Don't worry about anything. Worry never brings any benefit to anyone. On the other hand, it spoils even the little that you might do. There is a beautiful saying I read on a daily calendar page many years ago. It said, "sorrow is nothing but what you borrow." Nobody is going to give you that. You go and borrow it. If you don't care to borrow it, there is no sorrow for you. That is all. You are the cause of your worry. Nobody can bring worry to you. If you care, decide not to worry. Remember, worry is not going to bring anything to us. On the other hand, it will sap away even the little energy, the little capacity, that we may have. A worried doctor cannot operate, you all know that. A worried student cannot write an exam. Go with full confidence. Just say, "I am doing all that I can. That is it."

We make things change. Everything takes it own time. We are in a hurry to change things. We want everything instantaneously. Allow nature to have its say. Nature is God. Let our lives be filled with trust in the higher will. Whether it is an individual or an organization or a nation or the whole globe, let it go smoothly in its own time...

I also feel that it is only when we are pushed by our worries that we are likely to step out of our routine and start searching for different answers...

Happiness and suffering are states of mind, and so their main causes cannot be found outside the mind.

when it goes beyond our capacity to accept..then the tர்oubled state of mind takes an upper hand.

ஹம்ம்ம்... பல சமயங்களில் இதிலிருந்து மீள முடியாமல் தான் போகிறது..

பொய்யாகிப்போன உறவுகள்...
அக்னியாய் வரும் வார்த்தைகள்... தோற்கடித்த வாழ்க்கை...

இதற்கு எதிர்பார்ப்பும் ஒரு காரணம் தானே...

ஆனால் அதை நினைத்து நினைத்து ஒரு வித சுகத்தை அனுபவிக்க பழகிக்கொண்டவள் நான்...

hmmm....good post....to think and analyse oneself..thanks

what the samy says is truth and nothing but truth.. but can our heart / mind / sense(s) take this advice truthfully? i doubt.

in that case are such philosophies meant only for preaching from a pulpit? by somebody to nobody..?

If every belief takes its shape only in the mind in sense, how we can brush away what swamiji says is not attainable - borrowing worries and more worries.

Good and bad habits can be obtained and firmly embedded deep within our character; how it occurs, actually, sam? As we train or focus on a thought more often, then it becomes a reality. If that is so, why we can not cultivate these kind of positive, healthy attitudes also in our everyday lives?

Of course, it does need lots of perceptual shifts in terms of how we look at ourselves at first place and secondly how we relate ourselves with the world we live in.

I believe, it can be cultivated and attained over the period of time, only when the old belief is over written with new positive belief.

It happens when we reduce the number of negative thoughts entering into our mind plus when we are not encouraging to breed more and more in similar course.

Mangai,

Based on the thing you have said, to me it seems like, you yourself has the question and the answer alike.

I Hope, with whatever the experiences you have gathered as you wade along the life's river, you transform those experiences into wisdom for the later use of any decision making. And I believe you are on the right track at this moment.

So, as Dr. Deepak Chopra put it : Experience is not what happens to you; it is what you do with what happens to you."

All good!!
