What is in our hand ? Situation or my own State ?
What to do when the situation is not in my control? This is the common query of our new generation students. I have chosen this topic today because this is something for what I have myself suffered a lot in my life. And I believe that not only me but almost everyone in this world suffers a lot emotionally and mentally very much for this reason.
REAL LIFE EXAMPLE
As usual my way of explaining the matter is through examples and I will take a hypothetical case of a person who is around 20 years of age, similar to me. Now as we all can see in today’s world cardiac attack is something that has become too common in almost every age group. So I’m supposing that the person got a heart attack at 20 years of age. Now anyone in the position of this person will start feeling depressed about the misfortune which will depress his/her family and friends and will actually delay the process of healing.
GOD IS NOT RESPONSIBLE
Actually the basic thing I want to convey is the fact that no one continues to have a smooth journey all throughout their life. And getting frustrated and looking up and saying God that “why this has happened only with me? I have never done something wrong “, actually will never help. The best person who can help at such time of distress is the person within us. Empowering yourself rather than waiting for other people to empower us or rather than expecting that the situation will get better and then we will be happy is actually foolishness because by the time everything will settle down we would have already gone through a lot of pain.
WHAT IS IN OUR CONTROL?
Then what actually is in our hand? Situation is never in our control. You can’t expect even your dear and near ones to have a nice conversation with you every time. There will be incidents in life which will not be according to what we had expected. The only thing that is in our hand is our own state of being. We can’t see our reflection in moving water. Only when the water is stable we get to see our face and it acts as a mirror. Similarly, when we stop getting confused in life and try to get stable in every situation, we can view the situation from a better angle and just like the reflection of our face in stagnant water we will be able to see the solution to every problem of our life.
I hope this article has helped you to realise what is in our hand? situation or my own state?
