You Have a Great Task, and It’s Not Impossible
Why are we seeing so many psychological cases now? Why are even the children becoming neurotic? What’s happening to the world? Somehow in the name of civilization and culture, we have lost our strength. We have lost control over our own senses. We have become weak. That’s why nowadays nobody even wants to make a commitment. The minute you get married, the commitment chokes you. You immediately feel, “Oh, it’s too much for me, I can’t live like this.” You want to get out. There is no commitment between husband and wife, between parents and child, between teacher and student, between employer and employee.
Commitment is very important in life. Those who want to lead a spiritual life are here to change all these things and to rebuild a better world. Remember that. You have a great task, and it’s not impossible. If you really put your heart and soul into that, you can do it. Begin with your own life. Let nothing shake you. You have to be really bold and strong to achieve anything in life. Be that bold.
When you know that something is right, don’t hesitate to follow it. Certainly there may be obstacles, tests; but don’t give up. Even if you should fall down or make a mistake, get up and say, “No! The next time I’ll be strong.” Keep on going, like great mountain climbers, until you reach the top. If you really want to do it, you will be given the needed strength. You will have all the support. If you want it, you’ve got it; but your want has to be that strong.
