The Support Of Faith: 19 ►From the Summit towards the Trench

Published: 30.01.2020

Renowned actress of Hollywood Shurley Melin has been very successful in her life at many counts. She was at the height of material success. She felt very proud of her success. Gradually, she became vexed with all her accomplishments. Some questions occurred to her mind. Who we are? Where have we come from? Why have we come? What is our purpose? Whether there is a goal to achieve in this world or are we just running from pillar to post. What is our inspiration to act? What is the reality behind this life? Whether have we free will? Are we limited to our outward appearances or are we interested in our existence too? These thoughts worried Shurley. She found that the material accomplishment was worthless. One fine morning she renunciated the world.

A man on his spiritual pilgrimage cannot remain indifferent to his body. He even cannot afford to remain physio—centric as well. He has rather to transcend his bloodiness. He endeavours to attain his self through the channels of nervous system and organs of his body. Any one of us who has his/her will to realize can make such self-endeavour. Anuvrat is the first step to kindle the passion for realizing that self. Through self-control and self-discipline, it is a humble attempt to bring about a change in our attitude. Moral values have their own role in practical world regarding social contexts. When men behave selfishly and greedily, he deprives his culture with values.

People devoid of values become restless for material heights. That cannot be a refuge. Once they get that height, they have to descend from that height. One can escape from this chain of ascending and descending. May men have faith in human values?
