“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.”
At any time, an individual can face circumstances that seem to great to overcome by oneself. It should NOT be seen as a weakness. The ability to realize that a problem has become too vast to deal with on your own is an important part in taking responsibility for yourself. It could even be seen as an act of taking care of yourself.
Once we truly understand and accept that life in itself is a series of problems, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters. Because then we are confronted by a different question entirely.
“Do we wish to moan about them or solve them?”
That which makes life difficult is the process of confronting or resolving those issues. These problems represent the difference between success and failure. Problems generate our courage and our wisdom. It is through the pain of facing problems that we learn.
Fearing the pain involved, almost all of us at one point, attempt to avoid an issue. We procrastinate, hoping that they will vanish. We ignore them, forget them, pretend they do not exist…
By this, I mean let us teach ourselves and our children the necessity for suffering and the value of confronting problems directly and overcome the pain involved in order to grow stronger and wiser with each day.
