In the modern world we are all always on the run: after wealth, position, possessions and in the tension we forget to live. Stress builds up and as we tend to be alone it worsens the situation. Overloading of work, politics at the workplace, lack of promotions and recognition, the melee and snarls on the roads--all together our lives are on tender hooks.
Each cell, each nerve is tight and taut. The constant competition to surge ahead of others, friction between colleagues and bosses and problems in the house make our lives tense and strained. Is there no way out? Why should one go after more and more money or possessions? Wealth or possessions need not make us happy, the real purpose of life. Instead, can we not try to reduce our expenditure? Can we not try to do something we enjoy doing and do what we do in a better and more satisfying way? Can we not Find time to relax, go for a brisk walk, a swim or go for cycling? Why not we sit quiet somewhere breathing slowly and deeply thinking nothing?
We come from this universe, the basic structure of our body and that of everything else is all the same subatomic particles. We are one with this universe and we share the universal intelligence and we do not die; we simply merge into it. We will be living for ever with the universe.
No worry, no tension and no sorrow is permanent. Day gives way to night and there is light surrounding a shadow; there is a birth for every death. The darkened sky and looming hurricane will give way for quietness, zephyrs and light. After a tsunami the ocean becomes tranquil and blue like a placid lake. Time heals everything. The forces that led you into the nether gloom of despair will take you to realms of pure joy.
