Facing Difficulties

Whenever you are faced with a difficult situation, simply remember, “Whatever happens is for good.” Think,”Probably God wants it that way. I know whatever God does is always good for me.” This thought alone will take the burden out of your heart. Your mind will become light. You will be ready to handle any situation “because it’s for my good.” You won’t be frightened, no matter what happens.

That means your mind will be prepared to accept things. It is the preparedness of the mind that is the secret of success. You are relieving yourself of the burden and tension, so the mind becomes more calm. A calm mind can face any situation.

So, accept that whatever may happen, it’s for your good. It’s true. Anything in life that happens is ultimately for good. The goodness may not be visible right away, but it will be later on. When we are afraid to face things, the fear itself creates a bigger problem. When filled with anxiety, the mind is no longer fit to face the challenges of life.

Cultivate this thought:

“God is with me. I am not alone. I am always well protected. Nothing can affect me because I am the child of God, and He won’t allow anything to hurt me. Then why is there pain in this? There must be some gain behind it. It’s all for my good.” –H. H. Sri Swami Satchidanandaji Maharaj
