Life is full of worries. They seem to come in an endless procession, isn’t it? When you worship God, make sure you repose total faith in Him. Without faith, what is the use of worship? Faith alone will take you beyond worries. What is it that does not cause anxiety? Birth is a worry, and so is existence itself; family life is a worry, death is a worry, childhood is a worry, old age is the same, living is a worry, working is a worry, pain causes worry, pleasure too causes worry, and so on. Worry, worry, worry all the time! In this world, troubles will come for sure but you must learn to rise above worry; this is possible only with forbearance (kshama). Welcome troubles with a smile saying, “Come my friend, you are the bearer of joy!” When you are filled with kshama, you will be blissful and achieve everything in life!
