16454Weekly Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda (and Picture)
- Dec 14, 2008The Whole World is a Stage
"If everything is peaceful, there is no fun
in life. You cannot watch a movie that is always
loving, joyful and happythere should be some
fight or conflict. Is it not so? People enjoy
that kind of a movie. The whole world is a stage
and, in a drama, every kind of action is there.
So how can we enjoy it? By not getting the ego
involved in it. Just be a witness. Imagine a
movie in which two fellows are kicking each other.
What would you do? Will you kick your neighbor in
the next seat? No, you watch them both. In the
same way, we have to rise above all these things
to the ultimate truth and at the same time play
our part. The ultimate truth is: Whatever happens,
it is God's will.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
Sri Gurudev Swami Satchidananda
