To be more clear, here I mentioned a short conversation from Bhagavad Gita where God Krishna was giving the way to live a normal folk.
- Folk: I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.
- Krishna: Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.
- Folk: Why has life become so complicated?
- Krishna: Stop analyzing life. It makes life complicated. Just live it.
- Folk: Why we are constantly unhappy?
- Krishna: Worrying has become your habit. That is why you are not happy.
- Folk: Why do good people suffer always?
- Krishna: Diamonds can not be polished without friction. Gold can not be purified without fire. Good people go through trials. With that experience, their life becomes better, not bitter.
- Folk: You mean to say such experience is useful?
- Krishna: Yes, in every term experience is a hard teacher. It gives the test first and the lessons later.
- Folk: Because of so many reasons, we don’t know where we are heading.
- Krishna: If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the way.
- Folk: Why does failure hurt so much?
- Krishna: Success is a measure decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure decided by you.
- Folk: In tough times how do you motivate?
- Krishna: Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count on your blessings, no what you are missing.
- Folk: What surprises you about people?
- Krishna: When they suffer, they ask, why me? When they prosper, they never ask, why me?
- Folk: How can I get the best out of my life?
- Krishna: Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.
- Folk: One last question. Sometimes, I feel that my prayers are not answered.
- Krishna: There are no unanswered prayers. Keep the faith and drop the fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.
