BALANCE

Swami Sivananda

Expect nothing. Your happiness is assured. Ask nothing. You will never be disappointed. Call nothing your own. You will never mourn any loss. The material world is a very harsh ground. You have to move very cautiously, or else it will destroy you. Do not cling to earthly objects, and do not brood over failures, defects and mistakes. Cultivate discrimination and foresightedness. Lead an introvert life. Speak a little. Move a little. Do not talk about yourself. Donot ask personal questions. Do not interfere in other people's affair. Speak sweetly. Speak kindly. Even if you have to say ‘no’ to some one, say that gently. Where you are not wanted do not force yourself. Learn from the experiences of others. Look to the ground which you tread. Contd…


When senses trouble you, remember the sages Narayana and Nara. They are the supreme masters over the senses, before whom Indra had to bow his head in shame.
