Conversation With Lord Krishna
Me: I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.
KRISHNA: Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.
Me: Why has life become complicated now?
KRISHNA: Stop analyzing life…. It makes it complicated…. Just live it.
Me: Why are we then constantly unhappy?
KRISHNA: Worrying has become your habit. That’s why you are not happy.
Me: Why do good people always suffer?
KRISHNA: Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer. With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.
Me: You mean to say such experience is useful?
KRISHNA: Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons afterwards.
Me: Because of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading…
KRISHNA: If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the way.
Me : Does failure hurt more than moving in the right direction?
KRISHNA: Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.
Me: In tough times, how do you stay motivated?
KRISHNA: Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.
Me: What surprises you about people?
KRISHNA: When they suffer they ask, “why me?” When they prosper, they never ask “Why me?”
Me: How can I get the best out of life?
KRISHNA: Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.
Me: One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.
KRISHNA: There are no unanswered prayers. Keep the faith and drop the fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.
