Take the Best from Each Experience
Every experience is important.
It can become meaningful and…
- contribute to what we are
- who we can become
Through his childhood
Sri Buddha’s father protected him
from the sorrow of any kind.
BUT on becoming a young man…
he took a round of his kingdom.
For the first time…he saw
…a sick man and a death procession.
Stopped in his tracks….
he began to think about life and death….
….AND this was the turning point.
The turn that transformed his life.
When the apple fell on his head…
in an instant…
Newton discovered the law of gravity.
Expose yourself to the company of the wise.
Even one idea imbibed from them…
has the power to transform…
Sorrows can mature us and pressures can steel us.
Success can boost us and failures can sober us.
No experience…absolutely none
…is wasted or in vain.
Understand that every experience is:
- the result of various interactions
- the result of multiple causes
TAKE THE BEST FROM EACH ONE.
– – Swami Tejomayananda
