All religions teach the same simple truth
of the underlying oneness and harmony.
Yet we are aware of the differences and divisions
between communities and religions.
Our experiences of life show…we want
to live happily, collectively and together.
On reflection we realise the only thing
…required for this is COMMON SENSE.
Each one has to live their own individual life.
It is not possible to live the life of another.
So, we must:
take responsibility for our life
learn to mind our own business.
Generally we do not hold ourselves accountable
for all the sorrows of life.
We easily pin the cause of our unhappiness
on to something or someone other than ourselves.
We try to change people we encounter in life,
sometimes even the world itself.
HOWEVER our best intentions and efforts go in vain
because we are unable to change anyone.
IF we understand this simple point AND
use our COMMON SENSE
we can concentrate on changing our own lives
BECAUSE…the only life
we can actually change is our own!
Swami Vivekananda’s quote is memorable. He said,
“Common sense is the most
uncommon thing in this world”
– – Swami Tejomayananda
