“You are born. And you yearn to feel fulfilled. You should face this, because there is something you can do about that.”
Focusing on what truly matters in life is much easier said than done. But there’s joy and fulfillment in trying.
The objective here is to thrive – not to survive, but to thrive – to enjoy every single day. It truly is a gift. And how precious it is? Krishna says that “Whatever you think about the most in your life, you’re bound to remember that in your last moment.”
So, before I add any more to that, what is it you think about the most? Is it gratitude? Because if it is, then that’s what you’re going to remember. Or is it solutions to your problems? Because you can’t think about the solutions without thinking about the problem, right? So, you think about the problems and there they’re going to be.
And most of your problems exist because you’re alive. If you’re not alive, you don’t have those problems. Somehow, that which you set out to do that you wanted to do, you were not succeeding in it. That’s the problem, and that has always been.
You are still born. And you yearn to feel fulfilled. And you should face this – because there is something you can do about that. It’s not like that is an impossible dream. You can do something about that.
And all of these things that we’ve been talking about this morning, yesterday, these are all – they seem to be very clear indications that there is no clarity as to the aim of why you are here. This will affect you this way; this will affect you this way; this will have a this; this will have … Why are you here?
What is the purpose? What is the aim? What is possible? Why did you come to Knowledge in the first place? What attracted you to this? What was said that you went “Yeah”?
Let that which is beneficial to you sink in. What is not, throw it away. Now, mind you, it’s easier to say that than to do that. Okay? It’s much, much easier to say that than do that. But try. Just try! Little by little by little, you’ll get good at it. That’s all it takes: conscious effort. Conscious effort.
