Remember one secret, circumstances will never always be positive for us, that is how the world is designed. Yes, it is planned out as the university of hard knocks. There are times when life tests us, when difficult circumstances come to us. But the question is how we choose to respond at that time. That determines our quality of life ..
This mind is ours, is the factory that creates continuous thoughts. Thoughts are subtle bundle of energy that impact our health, that determine our attitude, that create our feeling of happiness and distress.
So, to be happy, we have to do better work, and to become better people. We must harbor better thoughts.
It is possible only by the purification of the mind. That is why, there is a need to manage our mind.
In order to manage our mind, we need to understand the gap between the external circumstances and our mind.
Very often when we are not aware of that gap, we feel controlled by circumstances.
We think that circumstances are able to disturb us, without realizing that in any circumstance we have the choice to choose the thoughts as we wish.
There is a beautiful story that shows that we have a choice of thoughts.
There was a saint called as Tuka Ram. He was a great saint of Maharashtra.
But his wife had a terrible nature, she uses to keep fighting with him. So, the Mahabharat used to continue at home all the time.
One day there was nothing to eat at home and that time the saint Tuka Ram was doing his bhajan – kirtan and chanting Radhe Krishna ..Radhe Krishna ..
His wife burst forth on him and said angrily — what are you doing? Go and sit in your shop and earn something. There is nothing to cook out here, so saint Tuka Ram obeyed the high command and he went to the shop. Now he earned his daily income and purchased some groceries. when he was coming back, he found some beggars. He kept giving to them in charity, and finally when he reached home, he only had one Sugarcane (Ganna)
Tuka Ram told his wife — this is all I have got today.
Hearing this, she got so mad at him that she lifted that Sugarcane and hit it on his head. That sugarcane broke into two. You can imagine that she must have really hit it hard to break into two.
But saint Tuka Ram was not ruffled by this. he said with smile — oh, it is split, never mind. You take one and I will take one. We had to break it. He then went into his pooja room and he said to God — oh, Shree Krishna, you are so kind, so merciful.
You have given me such a wife that I can never become attached to this world.
We can see here, this is the positive nature, that I should not let the disturbance come into my mind. The external disturbances see in them as blessing. Everything is happening for the good. So he is seeing in that situation the blessing of god.
