One should listen to their inner voice and be attentive to the feelings , emotions and thoughts within. Often the inner voice helps in finding correct direction. Human by nature is indecisive and looks at external reaffirmations and support for taking even simple decisions eg when one goes to buy a trouser in a shop one is so indecisive that one keeps asking the salesman which trouser is good , which colour is good etc before buying and once the salesman says a particular trouser is good , one invariably agrees and buys that piece. One has to learn to listen to the inner voice for all decisions first.
When a stream approaches a series of rocks, it has no preconceived plans for passing them. It does not see the rocks as opponents or as threats to its own existence. The very fluid nature of water tells it how to rightly meet everything in its path. Let this natural wisdom also guide you. Meet everything with a free and flexible mind, which is not tied to past experiences. Reflect on your beliefs and follow them as per inner voice.
Maintain the health of your soul. Find inner serenity of yourself. Different people have different ways of centering themselves in a calm place – meditation, prayer, recreation, gardening, exercise or solitude. Find what works for you and then make sure you find the time to pursue it. The greatest glory doesn’t consist in never falling , But rising every time one falls.
Be forgiving and grateful.
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think, we become.”
