An Ardent Devotee once approached a Great Saint in an Ashram, bowed to Him and said,
“Reverend Sir! Day and night, I constantly see many uncertainties around me ready to strike at any moment as I live thru' my life..
In spite of myself Navigating thru' my life with all care and attention, a particular uncertainty suddenly surfaces in front and asks a question,
- ‘Have you taken care of me in the present situation?’
Thus I find no way to be at Peace in my life at any point of time.. Unable to do anything here, when I start listing out these uncertainties, to my surprise I find the list really endless!
I am thus caught in my life and constantly live with the despair that springs up out of this turmoil.. Is there a solution for me?"
The Saint said,
"Dear! You can really do nothing in respect of this phenomenon of the Universe except continue doing your activities with all sincerity to the best known to you and not waste your energies with the futile attempts of dominating the Universe out of your inherent fears..
Here you may utilize your Navigation Skills in the direction of either
- Continuously exploring the vast unknown around you through that known to you thereby doing a yeoman Service to the world at large
- Surrendering to the Almighty with a great devotion merging yourself with the infinite unknown within with an offer of a sincere Prayer which goes thus..
By living thru' one of these disciplines alone, you will truly find a solution to your present confusion thus paving way for the Ultimate Peace in you!"
