Evolve and Elevate: This solves most of the world's problems, Death is replacement of the old bodies, Who the most successful person is?

Idea of the Week

This solves most of the world’s problems.

“The difference between what we are doing and what we’re capable of doing would solve most of the world’s problems.”

~ Mahatma Gandhi

 

 

Lesson of the Week

Death is replacement of the old bodies

Bhagavad Gita says:

Who has the authority to read Bhagavad Gita?

Every creature is an individual soul.

It keeps changing its body from a child to an adult and then turns into an old one.

Even then, the soul remains the same.

There is no change in the soul.

Each individual soul after death changes its body and because it has to receive a body in the next birth, whether it is a spiritual body or a materialistic body, there was no point for Arjuna to lament over the loss of Bhishma (He is a major character of the epic Mahabharata. He was the supreme commander of the Kauravas forces during the Kurukshetra War of the epic) and Guru Drona (He served as the royal preceptor of the Kauravas and the Pandavas in the Epic Mahabharata).

Instead, he should have been at peace with the fact that they would be replacing their old bodies with new ones, and with this replacement, they would receive a new power, new energy.

And with such body replacements after death, one receives a good or bad life, and it is calculated as per the karmas performed in previous life.

Because Bhishma and Guru Drona were saintly men, so they would receive a spiritual body in the next birth and if not that, at least by taking birth in heaven, they would have worthy bodies.

And in both the scenarios, there was no point of regret or feeling sad for their loss.

  The person who has complete knowledge about individual soul, God, and material and spiritual nature, he/she is called as Dheer (gentle).

And such a person is never fooled by body replacements.

 

 

Inspiration of the Week: 

Who the most successful person is?

Long back I was watching one of the episodes of Josh Talks.

IPS Navniet Sekera was invited to tell his inspiring story.

And he shared something that left a mark.

He told there was a boy who was very sharp, witty and intelligent. His intelligence took him to heights, and he became a filthy rich man in no time.

All he saw in his entire life was growth and success. He just saw the money flowing in and everything that he tried his hands on was a success.

His intelligence was a boon that made him a billionaire.

But there was something big missing. He had never tasted failure or downfall.

This might look fancy and dreamy but ironically it is something tragic.

The glorious days are great but if you haven’t ever gone through the gloomy ones, you haven’t grown.

You might be the wealthiest but not necessarily wise.

Suddenly this man who was flourishing faced a major slump in his business. In a matter of days, his business saw a crucial downfall and it was devastating.

It stormed his life and he fell to bits.

But this was not something a new story that had never happened elsewhere with anyone.

The fact that this man was witnessing failure for the first time, it took a toll on his mental stability, and he could not handle the tumultuous situation.

Everything went haywire and he lost his courage to navigate through it.

Now this man who was narrating the story said something that struck a chord with me.

This intelligent businessman shot his entire family including himself. He killed everyone and wrote a letter: I am Broke. I don’t have money. I am destroyed.

He was extremely bright and capable but emotionally unstable.

When it was investigated, it was found even then when his business was devastated, his bank account had 1 million dollars.

A normal man would leave his job if he had this whopping amount.

The storyteller said, “This intelligent businessman was not devastated because his business went through a big loss but because this was the first failure of his life which he could not bear and succumbed to it.”

The story was clear evidence of how someone having a wishful life without facing failures can suddenly be hijacked.

What I learned from the story was that failures are the backbone of your success.

They are the springboards that will never let you fall back no matter how many times you fall.

Failing is an option but giving up should never be a choice.
