Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Happiness and Unhappiness are in the Mind
"Those living in a body that has been disabled
or handicapped for a long time, or permanently,
should know that it's only the body and not the
soul that's disabled. Don't get depressed. You
can travel far and wide and do a lot of service
through the mind itself. Think well. Pray for all.
You don't have to limit yourself within your body
or the place where you are. If you can't get the
condition corrected or healed, don't worry about
that, accept it. Worrying isn't going to help you.
Don't get depressed. Know that happiness and
unhappiness are in the mind, not in the body.
Whatever the body goes through, let it go through,
and don't allow your mind to get depressed. Don't
get confined within your body. A body is a sort of
prison. It limits you, but, mentally, you can rise above it. !
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
