In the natural course of life, we will encounter different “storms”, periods of difficulty that can be very challenging and disturbing.

Living a spiritually oriented life will bring both perspective and solace and make it so we can pass through these periods without our life being turned upside down. Having a realistic view of life and the world is not just necessary but critical to living peacefully and purposefully. Unfortunately, society under the influence of Social Media has created so many unrealistic expectations which erode people’s resilience and peace.

In this talk we quote the Serenity prayer and a yogic text.
“Lord, grant me the SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change,
COURAGE to change the things I can,
and WISDOM to know the difference.”

Those who are seers of the truth have concluded that of that which is material there is no endurance and of the eternal [the soul/that which is spiritual] there is no change. This they have concluded by studying the nature of both. – Bhagavad-gītā 2.16
