Question: When you’re in a situation where you’re challenged more, what would you advise we do? It’s very hard then just to sit in meditation and watch, because there’s so much going on.
Babaji: I understand. Things may not be as easy as we talk. When a person lives in this world many things could be challenging. Constant practice of the spiritual exercises like meditation is though the final remedy. One has to take it as a challenge and regularly practice. That is why it happens. You see for example, if a war is declared suddenly then the army cannot go on practicing with their weapons. When the peace time is there they will always be exercising and practicing. That is why every time the spiritual exercises are very important.
Strongly, if you regularly practice by adopting the right technology, then you would be able to keep calm, you will be updating everyday because sometimes every day is challenging in life and you’ll be able to face things unperturbed, keeping your peace. When such a situation arises around you, simply by worrying, allowing the mind to become a victim you are not going to change the situation. Unnecessarily your mind also is becoming a casualty. If you start thinking positively and then try to keep the mind intact, maybe there is always a hope that you can try to handle the situation as much as possible. When it is beyond your capacity, you have to simply accept. Remember the old saying: “God, give me the courage to change the things that I can change, and give me the serenity to accept the things that I cannot change and the wisdom to know the difference”.
