Of late, I'm constantly reminded of the basic Truth in Nature Viz.,

  • 'The results are never in my hands as anything can happen at anytime!' 
That way seen, I find totally meaningless the ultimate of all my hectic running round in my day to day life. Here, if the day goes well, that's good enough for me; nothing more.. 

In line with this reality alone these days, I just do my works constantly Praying to God thus..


Help me solve the day to day issues of mine at the back of a certain mental balance, 
Help me protect my resources to lead this life reasonably happy,
Help me divert my mind from the uncertainty feeling constantly retaining my cheerfulness and
Let there be reasonable balanced life with me all through!'

What else I can do when such a Truth is revealed to me at this stage of my life? How can I with such a revelation, involve in the world activities as if nothing would happen? I feel.. That ignorant stage is gone for me in this life!"

Thus was speaking a man of mid thirties one evening to his elderly well-wisher of certain deep wisdom.. The elderly looked at him, smiled and said, 

“Dear! If you don't mind, I can say with 100% surety that no Truth has dawn on you presently, instead a deeper ignorance alone caught you here forcing you believe..
  • 'The results are never in my hands as anything can happen at anytime!'
Having been given the weapons of a sound body and sound mind with you, where is the right action from you here making use of these in the best way and thus face the realistic life in front of you?

Dear! The Almighty is ever happy only if I live thru' a basic discipline from our side comprising of, 
  • 'I've completed the required actions of the day well to the best of my knowledge and belief without giving place to any laziness, complacence or coercion from my side.. 
  • Having done my day's work well, I just wait for Your Directive for executing my tomorrow’s program as per Your Plan!' 
With the backdrop of these 2 disciplines alone, let there be the Right Prayer from me to the Lord thus..


'Lead me from the unreal to the real
Lead me from the darkness to the light
Lead me from death to the immortality
Let there be peace, peace, peace.'

And nothing less of that at any point of time in my lives!"

Exactly at that moment alone, the Sacred Pavamana Mantra of Brahadaranyaka Upanishad was heard on the distant loud speakers being recited melodiously thus..

'asato ma sad gamaya, 
tamaso ma jyotir gamaya,
mrtyor mamrtam gamaya,
om shanti shanti shanti.'

Confirming what the elderly gentleman of wisdom had said just then!

    1. Thanks Shoma Abhyankar.. Seen the comment today only and sorry for the delay in replying to that.. Best Wishes!

  4. So rightly said pitying ourselves is no solution, being strong and a right frame of mind will help approach things better :) super post!

    1. Rightly said, Shweta and thanks for the compliment..Sorry, I missed answering the comment all these days.. Best Wishes!

  5. Some deep message in the post. Do your work to the best of your ability, try your best to be the best, thereafter once convinced that you have done everything possible, you may sit contended that outcome is not in your hand.

    1. Very rightly affirmed the core message of the Post, Abhijit.. Yes.. I should do what best is possible from end and then only pray to god for the ultimate take over. Any less here can never be appreciated, however devotional I may remain there, as that attitude indirectly is nothing but that borne out of an inherent weakness in me to face the life in front as is.. Devotion should be never out of a weakness in me.. Thanks for the good comment here.. Wishes!
