Each of us are a gift to this world - the very fact that we exist!
Beautiful thought put forth by Prof DVR Seshadri during the REIL class yesterday based on his personal experiences.
A guest lecture prior to his class was a serious inspirational tale on resilience!
There is no need to prove ourselves or feel like failures - these are the wrong feelings of inadequacy that we often times imagine (guess those with greater imagination do so more often) ...
We always crave for 'becoming' instead of just 'being'.
The antenna must start receiving the divine signals ... Often our antenna is pointed elsewhere, realign.
Let us go back once more, O mind, to our own abode!
Here in this foreign land of earth. Why should we wander aimlessly in
stranger's guise? (From a beautiful song that Swami Vivekananda used to sing)
Greed and Lust - the thug and robber on the highway to realization!
Self belief and faith will see us through!
