18089Words of Wisdom From Swami Satchidananda
- Dec 18, 2011Learn from the Ups and Downs
"Learn lessons from the ups and downs in life.
You need failures; otherwise, you won't have
stepping stones to go up. Nobody has ever gone
up without failures. It's just natural. The more
intense you are in the spiritual field, the
greater the tests that will come. If you read
the life stories of sages and saints and great
devotees, nobody was spared from that. Don't think
that you will be always praised. But, if you know
that this process is natural, you won't get disturbed
over it. On the other hand, you'll know that you're
growing. The tests, themselves, are proof that you're
on the right path and that you're being tested.
Don't get disheartened by that."
"God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
