Increasing Your Resilience

Salient points:

Fear is normal and not a vice.  In the face of fear, you may either act with cowaradice or with courage.  Remember: When you take one step of courage, the Supreme Being hands you a thousand steps of help.

 

Why would a person perform any act that is against the voice of conscience?  The fundamental cause is not that they are bad, but that they had a moment of weakness.  They need power not punishment in order to act correctly.

 

Yoga is skill in actin

Yoga is to have a stable steady mind.

Yoga is being connected to the Suprme Being who is your support system.

 

Pain is mandatory, suffering is optional.

 

I will not suffer for your negative karma.

 

Most people do not know that you are not compelled to act according to your personal tendencies or Sanskaras.

 

Often it costs you more to do the right thing than to do the wrong thing.  Most people do not know this.
