Disciple :- I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.
Master :- Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.
Disciple :- Why has life become complicated now ?
Master :- Stop analyzing life…. It makes it complicated. Just live it.
Disciple :- Why are we then constantly unhappy ?
Master :-Worrying has become your habit. That’s why you are not happy.
Disciple :- Why do good people always suffer ?
Master :- Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer.
With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.
Disciple :- You mean to say such experience is useful ?
Master :- Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. It gives the test first and the lessons later.
Disciple :- Because of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading…
Master :- If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the way.
Disciple :- Does failure hurt more than moving in the right direction ?
Master :- Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.
Disciple :- In tough times, how do you stay motivated ?
Master :- Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing , not what you are missing.
Disciple :- What surprises you about people ?
Master :- When they suffer they ask , “why me ?” When they prosper, they never ask ” Why me ?”
Disciple :- How can I get the best out of life ?
Master :- Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.
Disciple :- One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.
Master :- There are no unanswered prayers. Keep the faith and drop the fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.
