Take life as you find it, but don’t leave it so.
The largest room in the world is the room for improvement.
Please share with our next generation or read it loud to family, it’s one of the best message I have come across…
*1. Swami Vivekanand*:- I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.
*Ramkrishna Paramahansa*:- Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.
*2. Swami Vivekanand:-* Why has life become complicated now?
*Ramkrishna Paramahansa:-* Stop analyzing life… It makes it complicated. Just live it.
*3. Swami Vivekanand*:- Why are we then constantly unhappy?
*Ramkrishna Paramahansa:*- Worrying has become your habit. That’s why you are not happy.
*4. Swami Vivekanand:-* Why do good people always suffer?
*Ramkrishna Paramahansa*:- Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer.
With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.
*5. Swami Vivekanand:*- You mean to say such experience is useful?
*Ramkrishna Paramahansa*:- Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons later.
*6. Swami Vivekanand:-* Because of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading…
*Ramkrishna Paramahansa:-* If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the way.
*7. Swami Vivekanand:-* Does failure hurt more than moving in the right direction?
*Ramkrishna Paramahansa:*- Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.
*8. Swami Vivekanand:*- In tough times, how do you stay motivated?
*Ramkrishna Paramahansa:*- Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.
*9. Swami Vivekanand:-* What surprises you about people?
*Ramkrishna Paramahansa:*- When they suffer they ask, "why me?" When they prosper, they never ask "Why me?"
*10. Swami Vivekanand:-* How can I get the best out of life?
*Ramkrishna Paramahansa*:- Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.
*11. Swami Vivekanand:*- One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.
*Ramkrishna Paramahansa:*- 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.
*Stay Happy Always!*
I believe in helping the miserable. I believe in going even to hell to serve others. Him I call a Mahatma, whose heart bleeds for the poor. Let us unite our wills in continued prayer for their good. We may die unknown, unpitied, unbewailed, without accomplishing anything; but not one thought will be lost. It will take effect sooner or later. So long as the millions live in hunger and ignorance, I hold every man a traitor, who having been educated at their expense, pays not the least heed to them. I call those men "traitors" -who strut about in their finery having got all their money by grinding the poor-wretches, so long as they do not do anything for the downtrodden.
Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.
