This world will go in its own way . I think we have no more option to think over it. We can not change the running wheel of time and people. We have to move with the movement of time. So if you want to be happy , never thought deeply about anything . There are countless questions of which you have no answers. we have to remain without answers of these questions. This type of situation will certainly torture you. You have to bear the pain of this torture. Lastly you have to adjust with this situation of life. If you want to remain healthy and satisfied with your life , you have to keep yourself always engaged in any works . In Hindi there is an
statement -‘ Khali dimag shaitan ka ghar” , which means empty mind is a devil’s house. So put yourself always in work , that will give no leisure to think over useless matters. As we know that busy man is a healthy man . it is said that inactive man is just like a dead man. Even birds also teach us in similar way. There is a story related to it which I am going to explain here.
After long time of meditation and alone life in a jungle , Mahatma Buddha could not get knowledge , then he was returning back to his house. In this journey he , felt thrust. At this place he saw a pond with fresh water. He went near the pond. At this place he saw a magical event. A bird , we call it ‘Titihari’, is doing unseen work with its tail . It was again- and again dropping its tail into water and again she used to through its tail on the side of pond. Mahatma Buddha asked to this bird , What are you doing ? Then that bird replied that this pond had dropped her two children, so I am taking revenge with this pond . I will dry this pond by doing this way. Gautam Buddha said , how you can do ? This is not possible for you to do because in comparison to you , pond is big. With her small tail , how can you dry pond? Then bird replied , that I know that it is not possible for me to do it , but I will not accept my defeat . It is only objective of my life to dry this pond. That’s why I am doing this day and night. Buddha started to ponder about the determination of Titihari bird that a small bird is determined to be successful in her efforts, then being a human , why I can not do it ? He returned back to forest and after long and hard meditation , he succeed in his objective.
Engagement and activity in life is a such thing by which a man not only achieve his objectives but he also becomes ideal and inspiring for others too. Swami Satya Prakash remained active in his work at the last moment of his life . He had written several books on science which became very popular . He never put his age and time in his way of achieving target. Once a time he was suffering from acute fever , but he never left his work of translating Vedas into English. He was of opinion that if he left his work due to fever and take rest , then it will be injustice with me because be inactive is equal to death.
If you remain active in life , it circulate new energy in your life . Your activity makes every parts of your body more active and powerful. You always remain full of energy and excitement , that makes you full of confidence and positiveness of thinking. This directly affects your working attitude. It is found in research that a active person is more mentally fit and healthy than the person who is inactive and lazy . That person never thought about his health in old age and try to remain always happy . Such type of person never suffer with negative feeling and he always try to be positive in thought. It is quite natural that we will feel negativity and depression , but we have to do to keep away himself from such type of negative forces. These types of forces spoiled our positive thoughts and only these are the with help of which we people survive in life . Our activeness and engagement in work will keep us away from these type of situations which we face always .
Here is need to keep going yourself in positive direction and welcome to new ideas in your life . This is only possible when you keep yourself engage in any work or thinking process. The habit if book reading is also a good medium of keeping yourself engaged in a positive manner. It is my firm conviction that book reading can be a solid source for our self for positive thoughts. These positive thoughts gives us new energy to work and if we want to develop yourself , or brought happyness and money in your family or want to bring positive changes in the society , then you have to be engaged in positive activity. There is only basic difference of thoughts of people that guides them to approach any problem. A positive man always believe in finding of solution of any problem and on the other hand a man with negative thoughts always increase problems.
Engagement is the life breath of any body. If we get failure , it means , there is lack in our efforts. Just like every moment of life requires life breath to survive , in the same way to get success in life you have to remain always active .
In Veda too , activity is said to be a religious requirement for all living things . According to Veda , the person who is always sleeping due to laziness , is just like a dead body. The person who rise up and sit , is become a living being . And those , who stand up and start journey , start his journey towards immortality. As it is a presumption that one who remain always inactive . to whom every moment of life is like ‘kaliyog’ . One who stand up , to whom it is dwapar and one who is ready to continue , to whom it is ‘ treta’, and one who continued and became active , to whom it is time equal to ‘Satyug’ . Lastly we can say that time is always valuable and it is up to you to utilize it the way you feel better .
As we know that the most valuable thing in our life is time because once a time passed , passed for ever. If we use it in proper way , we can achieve whatever we want to achieve in our life. We know that ‘ god helps those who help themselves.’ So if we want to achieve something in our life , first we should know the value of time and its proper utilization.—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–The END.———————————————————————-
