Keep moving and keep your spirit high

Monday, June 11, 2018

After the grand World Culture Festival event in Berlin, the volunteer team shared their challenges with Sri Sri.

Challenges are there to make you see that you can overcome them, that you have the energy. Your spirit should be high at all times. It doesn’t matter, never mind, keep moving and keep your spirit high. That is the main lesson - that you are unaffected by the event. Lessons come out of challenges. These are momentary challenges; see them off with a smile.

My boss is very adamant. We have had many conflicts. How do I handle him?
Very easy.  Say whatever you want to say the other way around.  I want to tell you a small story. This person’s wife was very adamant. She would always do the opposite of what the husband said. The husband was desperate and went to a Swami for advice. The Swami whispered something in his ear. 
Three months later, the Swami was in the same city and saw that this person looked very happy.  The husband thanked the Swamiji and said, “Your trick worked!”Swamiji had advised him to say the opposite of what he wanted!  For example, if he wanted fried potatoes, he should tell his wife that he did not want fried potatoes. It’s all about how to handle the mind. Do not talk when communication breaks down. Tough people increase your own skills.

What do you think about anti-depressants?
Be in knowledge.  Listen to knowledge and do your practices every day. Then you cannot get into depression. Follow medical advice and go gradually. Join a team, do seva. When you have nothing to do, you think about yourself and get depressed.

Whom should we pray to, you or God?  Will you transfer our prayers to God or go to you directly?
Prayer is innate. It’s not something that you do with your mind or is in your mind. It’s something that happens automatically when you need help.  Do not make an effort to pray. Relax. There is only one God who works through everyone.         

— Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
