Lockdown, restriction, working at home, loss of income, home-schooling children, crowded house. Perhaps we are even uncomfortable with our own company, or those that we home-share with. Hope is a precious commodity. What sustains hope?
Humans, by their nature, have to engage themselves in some action or other. They have to be active, either physically or mentally or both. The message is “We can do this together.” Light the lamp of love in your hearts and send it to others with your thoughts of love; impart courage and confidence to others in need.
The ups and downs of life make it impossible for you to live happily without any anxiety or bother. Life is a mosaic of pleasure and pain; grief is an interval between two moments of joy, peace is the interlude between two wars. You have no rose without a thorn, the diligent picker will avoid the pricks and gather the flower. There is no bee without the sting, cleverness consists in gathering the pollen, nevertheless. Troubles and travail will follow you, but you must not allow them to deflect you from your tidy mind, your disciplined life, the established patterns that carry you forward, day by day, with self-confidence and self-respect.
