About Pratibha

I am Pratibha. I live with my husband, son and mother in India. Teaching is my passion and so is reading books. I created this blog so that I can share what I have learnt from all the books that I have read so far and all the things that experiences in life has taught me so far. I love listening to music, dancing and taking to people and yes, these days I love spending moments of silence with nature!

Oh, Why be Restless

I am restless.

I tried to find out my why.  I got my answer and a reply.  An email and a message from the Mother.

If you too experience like me, restlessness, in moments, this answer would instill peace!

Read what she says in this,

“Oh, why be restless and want that for oneself things should turn out in one way and not another!  Why decide that a particular set of circumstances will be the expression of the best possibilities and then launch into a bitter struggle so that these possibilities may be realised! Why not use all one’s energy solely to will in the calm of inner confidence that Thy Law may triumph everywhere and always over all difficulties, all darkness, all egoism! How the horizon widens as soon as one learns to take this attitude; how all anxiety vanishes giving place to a constant illumination, to the omnipotence of disinterestedness! To will what Thou willest, O Lord, is to live constantly in communion with Thee, to be delivered from all contingencies, to escape all narrowness, to fill one’s lungs with pure and wholesome air, to get rid of all useless weariness, be relieved of all cumbrous loads, so as to run briskly towards the only goal attaining; the triumph of Thy Divine Law!
