Wisdom is to Know, What is Possible and What is Not, in this Moment


This post was most recently updated on February 17th, 2018

Your daily life is all about different situations. With each situation, you have your expectation because one situation leads to another. The thing that needs to observe about a different situation, is that you hold no control over the situations of your life.

You can certainly hold control over, what you do in your life, but you couldn’t have control over the things happening outside yourself.

The way life’s situation unfold is not in your hand, but the only thing that is in your control is what you do in the moment. The effort you put in life is in your hand, but what comes out of it, is not, in your hands.

Life considers all the different aspects of life, and works as a whole, while the mind has limited access to life, and lives with its limited perception of life.

Life follows an eternal way and thus everything that happens in your life comes out of the natural process. It’s not possible to think the way the life thinks unless you become one with life, and thus, the best way to live your daily life, is to focus on the things, that is possible in the moment.

No matter how badly, you need something, the life follows its own process. In reality, when you take time to observe life, you realize that your needs or ideas of life come out of fear.

The individual mind thinks that the life has to happen his way. The mind that experience eternity only looks for the natural process with everything.

The natural process of Life is neutral for everyone, and for the human mind, it’s not possible to think neutral.

When you are in the situation, you don’t think about the situation, considering the perspective of everyone, rather you only think of yourself. With the individual perception, your perspective remains limited to yourself.

There is nothing bad in holding one’s own perspective, but if your perspective doesn’t match the natural process of life, life will follow its process but it may or may not match the perspective of your mind.

The people who hold wisdom are not the ones, who possess, all the knowledge of the world, but the ones, who are aware, about the natural process of life, knows how to align themselves with it.

Even the highest wisdom doesn’t give you the liberty to break the natural process of life, but all you can do is simply align yourself with it.

The Way of Life, According to Laotzu

With life, you don’t prepare yourself to stand against it, but all your efforts lie in understanding the process of life and become one with it.

The cause of pain and suffering is expecting something different than what actually exists in the moment. Life follows its own process, and your role in life is to focus on the things that are possible in the moment.

With life, each one holds its own unique path. No individual is created in the same way, and each one is different from another.

Your daily life’s situation is different than any other person, and only with your own understanding, you can respond to your daily life, and develop necessary understanding out of it.

It’s true that you cannot learn everything on your own, and thus you need teacher, guru or master to take you through your path. But remember, you have to cover your path, on your own, and you cannot cling to any of your mentors, how so relevant or important it seems, in the moment.

With life, whats important is the path and the destination. You have to walk the path and reach the destination all alone. In life, anything that you receive from outside is a sign-post. In the end, what remains in life, is your path and you, and when you reach your destination, you have to drop everything including yourself, to experience that ultimate truth.

When you gain knowledge or wisdom from others, all you have, is the words, in the form of information. You may receive information from an enlightened being, but that information cannot serve the purpose in your life’s situation unless its a part of your life process.

You can take the necessary learning, that can serve you, in your life’s situation, but that learning should come out of your personal life’s experience.

Wisdom teaches you to focus on what is possible and what is not. With understanding, you only keep your mind on things, that is possible for you, in terms of efforts, and even with the efforts, you make sure to act, considering all the aspects of life.

Don’t chase any part of life, either personal or professional, but stay committed to your life’s path, and do what is possible in the moment.

Life sooner or later will turn out the way, you want, but you cannot sit and wait to expect the life to turn out, the way you have expected in your mind.

Life on earth doesn’t serve the mind, but it serves the process of life. You have to understand the process of life, which is possible only by observing oneself.

The mind is an instrument that too, plays its role, just like stomach, heart and different parts of the body. It’s just that very few people try to understand the functions of the mind.

When you understand the functions of the mind, you don’t get driven by the mind and its senses, rather you drive the mind in the direction, of your choices.

With wisdom, you get the clarity of life. Life seems hard when you pull in the opposite direction of the reality. If you learn to flow with the natural flow of life, life becomes effortless.

No individual is limited to his mind but holds the capacity to rise above his ordinary life.

Life always moves in synchronization. With the individual mind, you only want to seek for yourself, but life considers the need of every individual on this existence.

Absolute Tao: Subtle is the way to love, happiness and truth

Wisdom in life connects you with life itself, where you begin to see life, as a whole. You serve your daily situation, considering the need of everyone around you.

We all carry perspective towards life, that allows us to look into eternity. Till the time, you follow your mind, body, and senses, you don’t have an access to the higher perspective, but if you learn to hold yourself in the moment, and allow your thought process to settle down, you can see through your daily situation from a higher perspective.

You see the connection between everything that exists in the universe and how beautifully everything is synchronized in small and a large scale.

Life is happening inside, and when you bother to look inside, you receive all the answers of your life. To get to the wisdom of life, you have to stay open to experiment with life and learn the necessary lessons out of it. There are no secrets to life, that has been kept hidden from you. All it requires is, your willingness to create a necessary desire to look into it.
